Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Nicotex is useful for quitting smoking upto an extent. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. 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—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. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

Negative thinking is more to do with your state of mind. 1. Develop self-esteem and make friends with positive thinking people. 2. Every person is unique and nobody is perfect 3. Focus on your positive qualities and feel proud of your achievements 4 Don't keep doubting yourself. 5. Keep busy with your work and studies; maintain your schedule *Don’t keep grudge, anger and envy against anybody. 6. Avoid fast food and eat healthy nutritious food. 7. Regular vigorous physical exercise is very important. With improved blood circulation, toxins will be eliminated from your body. You will become very energetic and your mind will become fresh as well as positive. 8. Exercise has a positive effect. It makes you feel better. It fights the stress by creating natural and constructive outlet for releasing negative thoughts and emotions such as anger. 9. Exercise boosts the production of feel good hormones or endorphins. 10. Maintain healthy habits and have adequate sleep 11 Keep helping others without any expectation and it gives immense satisfaction 12. Homoeopathy has good treatment for this. Take homoeopathic medicine Arsenic alb 200 once daily in the morning and give feedback after 3 days.

Dear, stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the? fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as? acute stress? can be exciting? it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or? chronic stress? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Watching porn is never unhealthy in direct terms. But indirectly it could harm your intellects. This also shows that you do not have any serious things to do. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

I am 64 year male married in 1980 and have two children, all grown up ad well settled. Children live independently and are not depending on me. My wife is not living with me physically for more than 30 years. For the sake of my children I sacrificed my sex life and have no sex with my wife or any other women ever since my wife started living separately from me. Now I feel insecurity in my old age and want a companion as I am living with depressed mind causing diabetes and blood pressure, for which I am taking medicines. I feel, if I live a female companion, I can get rid of diabetes and blood pressure at least to a great extent. I have contacted some women and there are women ready to come and live with me. But, I do not want to disturb my present wife as she feel exposed to society and find her living miserable as all these days she used to pretend living with me. My present wife is spiritual, though not religious and immersed in her spiritual activity with an organisation, which I do not like her association with other men, depriving me health and happiness. I know, being a Hindu, it is illegal to marry a second wife when the first one is alive. The women consented to live with me have agreed for live in relationship and do not need re marriage. Please advice how to proceed in this issue and go ahead with living with another woman depriving the social status of present wife.

You can get married with your 1st wife's consent. Else, just live with the 2nd woman like live-in relationship without marriage. Living with that woman will never cure your diabetes or blood pressure, but might help you to get out of depressed mood and if you can, it can get you some sexual pleasures. All the best.

Dear lybrate user. The way you have carried out a number of tests for yourself, definitely suggest your anxiety, worry and doubt about yourself being healthy. If you are preoccupied with the idea of being diseased and get various tests done time to time even when assured to be healthy by doctor, you may be suffering from hypochondriasis which can be treated with medications. Anyways this is the side of story I have perceived from the information made available by you. For appropriate management you need to get in touch so that complete history and symptoms of your condition can be understood and treatment will be based on the same.

Hi lybrate-user. This is one of the common psychosexual problem men hv. This condition is called pre mature ejaculation. This can be treated with either medicine or behavior therapy. Though behavior therapy is bit tricky to understand, and you will hav to talk to a psychologist regarding this. This is called masters and johnsons therapy. Or you can use medicine for this and see the effect. For further query or medicine prescription you can ask q in pvt using code 7662kr2n thx.

How can I increase my concentration level at the time of study I am not able to start my study.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. You have not mentioned your age but I assume you are close to 20 years, in which case there may be hormonal changes going on in your system. You may therefore have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. If it is only starting trouble, then I suggest that you do group study or study with another friend but both need to be really serious.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

General Physician,
Positive Attitudes
All those out there who feel you are at your wits end wondering how things don’t ever work out for you, can now relax and dwell on all those failures that life has taken you through and turn failure into success.
Failure doesn’t mean you are a failure. But it does mean you haven’t succeeded yet.
Failure doesn’t mean you have accomplished nothing. It does mean you have learned something.
Failure doesn’t mean you have been foolish. It does mean you had a lot of faith.
Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been discouraged. It does mean you were willing to try.
Failure doesn’t mean you don’t to do. It does mean you have to do it in a different way.
Failure doesn’t mean you are inferior. It does mean you are not perfect.
Failure doesn’t mean you have wasted your life. It does mean you have a reason to start afresh.
Failure doesn’t mean you should give up. It does mean you must try harder.
Failure doesn’t mean you’ll never make it. It does mean it will take a little longer.
Failure doesn’t mean God has abandoned you. It does mean God has a better idea.

I am 68 years old and having sound health, my son and daughter are well settled and they are enjoying their life, my wife is quite wise and social lady, well caring tome and home. I remain in private job life long on higher position and good salary. Still I am giving consultancy to different industries and also doing my own share work. I have no worry regarding expenditure. But I always remain doubtful in my mind, always negative thoughts comes in my mind, many dreams are coming in my sleep so I feels tired when I got up. Due to this slowly I am becoming short tempered and causes of disputes between me and wife without any reason.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You are indeed a very gracious man: you have taken total responsibility for troubling your wife without proper reason. Congratulations sir, not many people will admit it like you have done. I doff my hat to you and may your tribe increase. Now for the matter at hand: as we age we become more and more tired and our defenses start to lower further. At this time we become irritable with even trivial matters. Your tolerance will become lower and lower over time. Your disturbed sleep will definitely contribute to the frayed nerves even more. Sound sleep of at least 8 hours is a must for adequate rest for the brain and the body: less than 6 hours is the most significant cause of precipitating nearly 86 diseases! to avoid disturbed dreams you need to sleep as far as possible on your left ear. Eat less of flatulence causing foods at night; mainly pulses and fermented foods. Eat dinner early. If it is possible to reduce the time in your work involvement, it is ideally recommended. Explain all this to your darling wife because her understanding will help both of you. Besides as we age, we do become less secure and fear the slightest of things because we know our limitations now. It may help, if it does not disturb them too much for either your daughter or son to return home to offer a change of scene in the house, periodically. I hope you are also exercising regularly. This is extremely important too.

Hi lybrate-user, Practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Daily for 15 minutes. Consult a psychologist for counseling.
