Hi, He has smoking habit. What we do to stop him? Kindly advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
I don? t know who you are talking about. But this much is clear, whoever has the smoking habit has to want to stop the habit himself, first. Anybody else that wants to stop someone else? s habit, even if you use force, cannot succeed in the long run until the person himself wants to stop it. Now the person will want to stop the habit as soon as he has? hit rock bottom? when he is really ready to give it up and wants help and support. Initially he needs to meet with a counselor who will encourage him to give up the habit by pointing out the imminence of? hitting rock bottom, and some responsive candidates respond with a serious motivation. Once that has been achieved he can be taken for detoxification either to a hospital or to a rehabilitation center and he can then follow their schedule for complete cessation.

How can I concentrate on my study?

MD-Psychiatry, MBBS, Basic Life Support (B.L.S), Certificate in Forensic Psychology
Psychiatrist,
Hello dear, the simplest solution to concentration & memory problems is a proper course of medicines & certain lifestyle changes ranging from as simple things as meditation & daily 30 minutes jogging to more complex things as structured diary writing, thought recording etc. But for all these to happen, you first need to describe your symptoms in detail so that I can give you proper help & a fast relief. Good luck!

We generally use the word 'stress' when we feel that everything becomes too much to handle - we are overloaded and wonder whether we can cope with the pressures placed upon us. Nowadays stress is a normal part of life. Almost everyone has some sort of stress. Constantly reacting to stressful situations without making adjustments to counter the effects, threatens our health and well-being. There are steps you can help you managing day to day stressful conditions and take to feel better. 1.Be realistic: If you feel overwhelmed by some activities (yours and/or your family's), learn to say NO! Eliminate an activity that is not absolutely necessary. You may be taking on more responsibility than you can or should handle. If you meet resistance, give reasons why you're making the changes. Be willing to listen to other's suggestions and be ready to compromise. 2.Shed the 'superman/superwoman' urge: No one is perfect, so don't expect perfection from yourself or others. Ask yourself, 'What really needs to be done? How much can I do? Is the deadline realistic? What adjustments can I make? Don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it. 3.Take one thing at a time: For people under tension or stress, their day-to-day workload can sometimes seem unbearable. The best way to cope with this feeling of being overwhelmed is to take one task at a time. Make a list of things you need to get done and start with one task. Once you accomplish that task, choose the next one. The positive feeling of 'checking off' tasks is very satisfying. It will motivate you to keep going. 4.Share your feelings: A conversation with a friend lets you know that you are not the only one having a bad day. Stay in touch with friends and family. Ask them how they have dealt with a similar situation that may be 'stressing you out. Let them provide love, support and guidance. Don't try to cope alone. 5.Be flexible: If you find you're meeting constant opposition in either your personal or professional life, rethink your position or strategy. Arguing only intensifies stressful feelings. Make allowances for other's opinions and be prepared to compromise. If you are willing to be accommodating, others may meet you halfway. Not only will you reduce your stress, you may find better solutions to your problems. Go easy with criticism. You may expect too much of yourself and others. Try not to feel frustrated, disappointed or even 'trapped' when another person criticises you. 6.Hobbies: Take a break from your worries by doing something you enjoy. Whether it's gardening or painting, schedule time to indulge your interest. Exercise: Regular exercise is a popular way to relieve stress. Twenty to thirty minutes of physical activity benefits both the body and the mind. Meditate: Just ten to twenty minutes of quiet reflection may bring relief from chronic stress as well as increase your tolerance to it. 7.Take Herbal Supplement: Herbs like Brahmi, Ashwagandha, Mandukparni, Shankhpuspi, Kaunch are very helpful in managing stress. These herbs work on the brain and help relax you which ultimately empowers you to manage your stressful conditions easily. There are many herbal supplements available in the market that can help you. 8.Consult the Doctor: If your stress level doesn't seem to improve with above tips, it may require more attention and consultation with an Expert. Or consult me on Lybrate privately Physical symptoms of stress include: •Low energy. •Headaches. •Upset stomach, including diarrhoea, constipation and nausea. •Aches, pains, and tense muscles. •Chest pain and rapid heartbeat. •Insomnia. •Frequent colds and infections. •Loss of sexual desire and/or ability. STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1.Perform diaphragmatic or deep breathing exercises. 2.Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3.Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4.Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5.Meditate. Use visualization or imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6.Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7.Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback 8.Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9.Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10.Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery. 11.Keep an eye on things that might suggest you’re not coping well. For example, are you smoking or drinking more, or sleeping less? 12.Keep a list of the large and little hassles in your day versus the major stressful events in your life. This helps you focus on the fact that you’re keeping track of and managing those as well as you can. 13.Set aside a time every day to work on relaxation. 14.Avoid using caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, junk food, binge eating and other drugs as your primary means for coping with stress. While they can be helpful once in awhile, using them as your only or usual method will result in longer-term problems, such as weight problems or alcoholism. 15.Learn to just say, “No” occasionally. It won’t hurt other people’s feelings as much as you think and is simply a method to be more assertive in your own life, to better help you meet your own needs.

Hi lybrate-user, going by your doc's diagnosis, there is nothing to worry as such. Cyclic fibroids, in breasts, are benign, transient and exhibit symptoms exactly as you describe. I would advise you to try avoiding caffeine/ products, sweets, chocolates, dairy products, alcohol, smoking, high calorie/ fatty/ oily/ greasy foods including fast foods etc all as they aggravate the condition. However, do include more of fresh turmeric, garlic, ginger, whole grain cereals, leafy greens like broccoli, spinach, cauliflower, carrots, tomatoes, amla, pineapple, apple etc all to your diet on a day to day basis. Avoid flesh foods excepting fresh fish which is beneficial in this condition. Use olive oil for your salad dressings as well as cooking in general. You can also use either extra virgin olive oil or evening primrose oil, as suitable, for gently massaging both your breasts including the nipples to ease out pain. This can be followed by a warm compress alternating with a cold compress for 10 to 15 minutes which alleviates pain. Hope this helps. Take care and all the very best.

Dear doc. My age is 23 and I have a very low concentraTion. And I forget things after a long period .my mind is unstable. What should I do to increase my concentration and stable my mind. I have very low memory. please give brief solution.

Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance and Counselling, Masters in Psychology - Clinical and Abnormal, Bachelors in Economics and Psychology

Better concentration and focus makes your daily life easier and productive. I have put down some pointers below that will help improve your concentration and memory. Get good nights rest 7-8 hours. Eat rights. Try and organise your day, this will help reduce anxiety and stress level during work. Don't try to do multitasking. Try to do most daunting task first thing in the morning. Don't try and look for perfection in everything you attempt. Take breaks from work or study at regular intervals this will help you unwind and concentrate better. Don't judge your work in comparison of others. Yoga, specially pranayaam will help. Attempt sudoko and crossword to improve your memory. Replace negative thoughts with productive thoughts. There is always room for improvement, channelise your energy to use your weakness as your strength. Jot down your thoughts to refer as a ready reckoner anything you do can we done better with a calm mind, have faith in yourself. Good luck & take care.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you? re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse? no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn? t easy. But it? s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Is memory loss always a part of aging? How much loss is considered normal? How much exercise do people over age 50 really need? Do sleep needs change as we age? How much sleep do we need after age 50? I just don't enjoy the things I used to, and I don't feel much like visiting friends or family. Is this part of aging? How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely drink, and does our tolerance change with aging?

Memory loss is gradual pattren in aging process. But in few poeple, its drastic&quick. Its all depends on person's life style, their past h/o tensions n worries or any shock& their reaction towards such incidents. Some times, these factors will not show impact immediately&as degeneration starts organ or system wise, symptoms like these also will begin. That all depends on as I said earlier. After 50's as its initial stage of geriatric period, as usual in many people mood swings, physical health disturbances all will start due to the changed balance in immunity, harmones, biological/physiological functions. So, in this period (actually from younger age onwards, following some ypga/meditatipn/pranayama/breathing exercises will help to ovrcome all these type of problems engaging on your onterested hobby also will do good. In this age, though you feel like to be alone, you should nt be alone. Try to engage in some communitis like charity, old age clubs etc as per your comfort. Mood changes, depression etc all depends on one's life style, relations with family members (like staying away from children, retiring from job which suddenly make a person feel like to isolated or unoccupied. So try to folllow the above measires will help better.

Anxiety and depression tend to go together. There may be reasons lurking from your past of which you may not be aware. Kindly meet with a counselor and that person will help you identify the source and the reason. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I would recommend you to really contribute he allopathic treatment. If the current regimen hasn't suited you, express tour concerns about it to your psychiatrist. The medicines can always be changed. Every person responds differently to a particular drug. Also there are other treatment options like therapy (counselling) which are highly effective in combination with the medication. You have to be patient, and stick with the treatment. Some times it takes time to find the right drug, which suits you best. Good luck.

What are the causes and consequences of mental disorders mainly at their high stage?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
What are the causes and consequences of mental disorders mainly at their high stage?
Mental disorders are like any other disorders and can happen to anybody. They can also be treated like most other disorders. But unfortunately it goes undetected and untreated which usually leads to worsening of the diseases. It can lead to a number of harmful consequences in the social, financial, occupational and even physical domains of the patient. So, the importance of treating mental illness can't be stressed enough.
