But one day my brother's friend asked me to about marriage and I told him I am having boyfriend and I will marry him only and he said ok leave me. But when I was telling to this matter to my boyfriend. He said always you are wrong, you do not have sense, you can not do anything correctly, why your brother's friend thinking like this.

This is a very silly reason to contemplate suicide. If you have refused someone that is good enough and your BF needs to accept that. Anything more than that may cause unnecessary discord all around. It sounds like your BF wants you to be more assertive and aggressive just because this guy proposed. It only means that he wants all competition around you to be eliminated immediately and summarily. However, you have done well and need not do anything more. Your life is very important and 'no one is worth dying for unless you were in the attempt to save them'.

Stress - 7 Foods That Help You Fight Against it!

Homeopath, Agra
Stress - 7 Foods That Help You Fight Against it!

In the modern day lifestyle, it is extremely difficult to be stress free. Even a tiny situation like losing your pen to a something like meeting a deadline at work can cause stress. Stress acts like a catalyst to different diseases like high cholesterol, hypertension, cardiac diseases, etc. You cannot avoid stress, but what you can do is help yourself fight it; you can actually fight stress with the help of food as well. Here are a few food items which will help you with your fight against stress:

  1. Chocolate: Chocolate is one of the best stress busters. It contains magnesium, phenyl ethyl amine and carbohydrates, all of which help lift your spirits. Chocolate helps in the reduction of stress hormones, helping you to relax.
  2. Coffee: Coffee helps your brain signal the production of BNDF (a brain derived protein), which helps to keep your brain cells healthy. A low level of BNDF can cause a lot of stress and depression. Coffee triggers many neurotransmitters which control your mood changes; so may be a cup or two of coffee will help your to be chirpier.
  3. Green leafy vegetables: All green leafy vegetables like spinach contain a high quantity of magnesium. Magnesium prevents headaches and fatigue, which in turn reduces stress.
  4. Black tea: Black tea can relieve you of stress, quicker than any other food item. Black tea reduces the amount of cortisol, a hormone which causes stress, and gives you a feeling of calmness.
  5. Milk: Milk contains calcium, which is known to ease anxiety and control sudden mood swings related to PMS or post menstrual stress.
  6. Bananas: Bananas have a huge content of dopamine which is a natural chemical that works towards boosting your mood. This is the same chemical released in your body after a session of working out. Bananas also have a lot of potassium and B group vitamins which work towards soothing your nervous system, and a lot of magnesium which brings in positivity to your mood.
  7. Almonds: Almonds are rich in vitamin E and group B vitamins, which will help you to be more resilient when you are depressed or anxious.

So if you are stressed out, pop in a few almonds or have a cup of tea, and release your stress. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

You probably face a problem in adjusting to you job and expectations out of you whenever you join a new job, that makes you anxious and depressed and vulnerable, especially when you are alone and devoid of help from family and friends. If you still anticipate a similar problem now then it is advisable that you start some form of treatment to deal with your stress and anxiety so that you remain prepared to face your fears efficiently.

Medicines and dosages will vary from person to person. Do not self-medicate too. Each person's constitution is different; their experiences are also different; the chemical imbalances, the chemical production and chemical receptacles vary sometimes in great many ways. Sometimes the cause for the depression will also vary. Also what you think is depression may be something else when seen in the context of the situation. So she must visit a doctor and let him or her determine the nature of the problem and what has to be administered and how much too.

Hi doctor my question is that I do smoke marijuana one joint in a day so will I get caught in nicotine test? Does marijuana contains nicotine? Thanks.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
The joint that you are smoking is actually Cannabis or Marijuana which is a greenish-gray mixture of the dried flowers (buds) , leaves, stems and seeds of Cannabis sativa—the hemp plant. Marijuana does not contain nicotine, but there are more than 400 chemicals in marijuana. The chemical that causes intoxication in users is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which creates the mind-altering effects. Marijuana is a substance of abuse, it does not have any beneficial effects on the body & harms in various ways. So would suggest that you quit smoking marijuana at the earliest.

I am 21 years old medical student. I have the habit of smoking from the past 1 year. In the short time I became very addicted to it that I smoke 15-20 cigarettes a day. I realized it's cause and decided to quit smoking. I stopped smoking for 2 days. Now it became more harder like cough, sleeplessness, anxiety to smoke, and so on. As a medico I know these are withdrawal symptoms. But how to get rid of it? please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Withdrawal symptoms vary from person to person and I hope that this is just that. However, many times when giving up addictive habits, the body does act strangely, sometimes because of psychosomatic factors and at other times just because of the absence of the substances. This is an attempt by the body to entice you back to the abuse by suggesting that you cannot manage without these chemicals. If you are weak you will succumb. If you are firm this attempt will fizzle out and disappear. Often when we have just given up a habit, the mind and the body is looking for a justification to return to the abuse, and so these reactions are surreptitiously proposed ? it is trying to give you a good excuse to relapse. Do not give this any attention. You have made a very good decision so do stick to it. After 21 days it will be a little easier. You are on the right track and you make me proud that you are doing this on your own. When you succeed, you must be proud of this as your own achievement. Stay determined and win this battle.There are some people who are on a reactive mode and will quit only after they have got a disease or reach the worst condition in their abuse. In addiction parlance this is called ?Hitting Rock Bottom?, that is, you will cease the abuse only when you have suffered the worst affect of the substance. Sometimes that stage may be a terminal stage and there is no turning back: it has become too late. You must live by the adage that ?Prevention is better than cure?. To quit do the following: When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Treatment for smoking and drinking varies according to the degree of addiction. Some medicines, nicotine patches, nicotine gum, lozenges etc should help tobacco craving. You, being a good loving and affectionate wife should be able to motivate him to quit smoking and drinking. Take care.

It is a psychological disorder. It needs medication based on patient condition. Medication is required as well as psychological counselling required. If patient is normal stage. Psychotherapy is enough. I think you take medication part only. Medication it will work on internal aspects. After medication also you may develop fear on particular disease means you need psychological counselling. In this case no need of alert faculties and etc. Psychotherapy and behaviour modification therapy will help to modify your thoughts. It is better to consult psychologist. No need of fear about it. You can spend with your family happily. You need to change your thought process. After medical treatment you may develop fear means you need psychological counselling. Psychological counselling is a permanent therapy. It modifies your total personality. Do not think too much about it. Better to spend most of the time with your family members. Share your thoughts and feelings with your family members. Be happy all the time. Be sociable. Be enjoy every movement of life. Ok all the best.
