I lost somebody since there I feel very depressed and tension what are the symptoms.
Dear Lybrate user, you are under going Grief, which is a natural response to loss-Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about is very painful. You may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness you're experiencing will never let up. Most important factor in healing from loss is having the support of other people. Even if you aren’t comfortable talking about your feelings under normal circumstances, it’s important to express them when you’re grieving. Sharing your loss makes the burden of grief easier to carry. Wherever the support comes from, accept it and do not grieve alone. Connecting to others will help you heal. Turn to friends and family members /Draw comfort from your faith /Join a support group/Talk to a therapist or a counselor. Good luck.

STOP SMOKING Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

If you are able to attach a positive meaning to your hard work then there's a way to be motivated and study again. Imagine how successful and happy you will be after clearing and getting a good job. You will be able to achieve some of your goals and dreams and some, friends, young cousin or sibling might be inspired by your hard work. Humans always want to live happily and achieve something in life and have influence on others so that they feel important and acceptable in society. If your friendship and phone can find you long lasting happiness and satisfaction then do that by all means. You can only decide what is the best for you. Take care.

Dear, socially accepted sexual practices and socially unaccepted sexual practices exist in the same society. Your case socially unaccepted. That never means you are doing something wrong. There are many areas where we do not do or restrict our self from doing something which is socially unacceptable. In this case too, you have to restrict yourself. Please do not be anxious about it, but you should restrict. Take care.

Alcohol and Mental health :How alcohol affects the brain and the varying mental health side effects that can result from excessive drinking

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Alcohol and Mental health :How alcohol affects the brain and the varying mental health side effects that can result f...

1. Alcohol alters your brain chemistry

The relaxed feeling you can get when you have that first drink is due to the chemical changes alcohol has caused in your brain. For many of us, a drink can help us feel more confident and less anxious. That's because it's starting to depress the part of the brain we associate with inhibition.

But, as you drink more, more of the brain starts to be affected. It doesn't matter what mood you're in to start with, when high levels of alcohol are involved, instead of pleasurable effects increasing, it's possible that a negative emotional response will take over. You could become angry, aggressive, anxious or depressed.

2. Alcohol can actually increase anxiety and stress rather than reduce it

Unfortunately reaching for a drink won't always have the effect you're after.
While a glass of wine after a hard day might help you relax, in the long run, it can contribute to feelings of depression and anxiety and make stress harder to deal with. This is because regular, heavy drinking interferes with neurotransmitters in our brains that are needed for good mental health.

When we drink, we narrow our perception of a situation and don't always respond to all the cues around us. If we're prone to anxiety and notice something that could be interpreted as threatening in the environment, we'll hone in on that and miss the other less threatening or neutral information. For example, we might focus on our partner talking to someone we're jealous of, rather than notice all the other people they've been chatting to that evening.

3. Alcohol depression = a vicious cycle

If you drink heavily and regularly you're likely to develop some symptoms of depression. It's that good old brain chemistry at work again. Regular drinking lowers the levels of serotonin in your brain - a chemical that helps to regulate your mood.

Drinking heavily can also affect your relationships with your partner, family, and friends. It can impact on your performance at work. These issues can also contribute to depression. If you use drink to try and improve your mood or mask your depression, you may be starting a vicious cycle.

4. Alcohol is linked to suicide, self-harm, and psychosis

Alcohol can make people lose their inhibitions and behave impulsively, so it can lead to actions they might not otherwise have taken - including self-harm and suicide. Extreme levels of drinking (such as more than 30 units per day for several weeks) can occasionally cause 'psychosis'. It's a severe mental illness where hallucinations and delusions of persecution develop. Psychotic symptoms can also occur when very heavy drinkers suddenly stop drinking and develop a condition known as 'delirium tremens' - symptoms include body tremors and confusion.

5. Alcohol can damage your memory

Soon after drinking alcohol, your brain processes slow down and your memory can be impaired. After large quantities of alcohol, the brain can stop recording into the 'memory store'. That's why you can wake up the next day with a 'blank' about what you said or did and even where you were. This short-term memory failure or 'black out' doesn’t mean that brain cells have been damaged, but frequent heavy sessions can damage the brain because of alcohol's effect on brain chemistry and processes.

Drinking heavily over a long period of time can also have long-term effects on memory. Even on days when you don't drink any alcohol, recalling what you did yesterday, or even where you have been earlier that day, become difficult.

You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a love. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints. Try to get away from loneliness and meet other friends or relatives.

I have panic disorder for the period of two years. Please suggests suitable medications (also suggest some natural antidepressants)

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
It is not good to have panic and it is possible to get over it. In counselling, panic is reduced gradually by helping the client to learn to calm down, see the problem in small chunks and also work on the thoughts that accompany panic and anxiety. If you feel incompetent or inadequate in certain situations, then you can decide not to do it at all if you can afford to or you can arm yourself with new skills to feel in control and confident. Eg. If you have to drive your car to work and you don' t know how to drive, then you attend classes to learn driving. Please click on private chat if you are interested to take the discussion further.

Sir, I have been smoking from 2 years and my age is 20 I have quieted smoking from last one month and feeling better now. My question is what should I do to make my lungs healthy?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Congratulations on your success with quitting smoking. This is incredible and you must keep it up under any circumstances. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself.

Medicine works internal changes. It helps reduce internal frustration. But we maintain external frustration outside it may effect on the internal aspects. After taking good medicine. Your thinking is frustrational status then medicine it will not work properly. So psychotherapy helps to improve external conditions. Life style modification helps to improve your life status. So better to take psychotherapy also. It has no side effects. Best of luck.
