Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Smoking 3 cigarettes daily or 5 for that matter is no addiction. I sincerely feel you can simply quit smoking with your will power. There are many other methods like deaddiction therapy. But nothing works better than will power. I suggest online motivation counselling. Take care.

First of all you have to understand that till now it is not a medical condition, but it can some day. You have start changing your way of thinking and behaving. 1) first you are an extremely emotionally sensitive person and most of the times, you function from the heart. If you start thinking and acting more from wisdom, you will be more peaceful. It will make you a more worldly wise person. 2) if you don't hurt people in return, that is extremely a rare quality, that means you forgive. Now since you forgive, learn to also forget. People are miserable only because either live in the past or worry about the future. Live in this moment. What is gone is gone. 3) to pursue any new relationship. It is really important, you forget the earlier or else it would spoil everything.

Whether eating of curd during night dinner, either with roti, or with some other food is it advisable or not , further after drinking whisky, in a limited quantity when one should have dinner whether after drinks, consumption of curd, or buttermilk do they reduce the alcohol effect on the body.

You should have your dinner as early as possible, even at 8 pm. Ideally, drinks should be consumed before dinner. Curds at night time is not at all harmful. Curds and buttermilk will do no unusual effect to the effects of alcohol. It is in fact good for your acidity.

5 Ways You Can Beat Depression Blues

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

5 Ways You Can Beat Depression Blues

Discussions and consideration of ailments begin and end with those which pertain to the physical health of an individual. Matters of the body are inevitably prioritized over the matters of the mind. However it goes without saying that your overall well-being is as much dependent on your mental health as it is on physical health. However, there are few simple measures which can be undertaken to beat the depression blues.

  1. Exercise: What works for the body may also work for the mind and exercise is a leading example of that. It is recommended that every day you set aside at least some time for exercising. It will not only benefit your physical constitution, but will also keep your thoughts away from the issues which are tormenting you in the first place.
  2. Converse: It is a given that depression alienates people, drowns them in solitude. However, seclusion is merely a temporary refuge, one that can hardly benefit you in the long run. Hard as it may be, try talking to people and engage in conversations with people. In the course of the conversation, try putting into words what exactly you are suffering from. Reaching out for an extended arm goes a long way in recuperating from this condition.
  3. Meditation: When you suffer from depression, you inevitably are, in the process, trying to grapple with plenty of tumultuous issues. It is imperative therefore that you find a way to calm your mind and there is no other way to do it than indulge in meditation.
  4. Find a confidante: When suffering from depression, it is crucial that you find yourself a confidante. It is important to talk to others but it is perhaps more important to find the right person. Irrespective of your relationship with him or her, by all means find a confidante in whom you can unflinchingly confide.
  5. Break monotony: Monotony not only triggers depression but in most cases, breeds it. It is important therefore than you break the monotony. If not a drastic change, go for small changes initially and try to change your daily routine as much as possible.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

If a person leaves alcohol without any solid reason permanently after being habitual of daily consuming for last 30 years, what are its results?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Just fantastic. It does not matter if there are any reasons, although I know there will be some reason even if that person does not admit it. Reason or no reason, the fact is that he has quit a habit that can be very damaging and since it is 'permanent', it is an excellent decision. Stopping at any time is always welcome, and he is looking at regaining some of the damages incurred and will definitely lengthen his life. I would also​ request him to do some script work to give his decision a final and good post-mortem.

Recently read that researchers believe certain foods might cure Alzheimer’s disease. Is this true? If so, which foods do this and how much would you have to consume to get the benefits?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Solapur
There are certain foods that can help in avoiding onset of alzheimers dementia. Foods containing high levels of anti oxidants and omega acids are beneficial in general for nervous system. But in case of advanced cases of alzheimers, along with healthy lifestyle and good food habits, medications are necessary. Currently there is no evidence of complete cure of alzheimers either by medications or with use of any particular food items. Currents medications however prolong the progress of illness and improves quality of life for the patients.

I am 26 years old and I am addicted to alcohol from 2-3 years and I tried a lot to quit but I failed. Please give me some type of solution.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop your habit of drinking alcohol permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from alcohol during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from alcohol you will feel a strong craving to drink just one peg of alcohol whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You cannot satisfy yourself with just only one peg. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of alcohol. Moreover you may feel a slight shivering of your hands after abstaining from alcohol for more than 15 days. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for alcohol.

Hello doctor, my husband is 44 years old. He is an alcoholic. I wanted to stop his this bad habit. But he does not believe that he is alcoholic nor interested visiting anti alcoholic center. Now a days, for no reason he is showing his anger on everyone i.e me, kids, road side passers by. Using abusing languages, yelling / shouting for no reasons. Please help me out with some medicine so that, he unknowingly stops his drinking habit.

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
The elements of treatment appropriate for patients with severe alcohol problems are fairly straightforward. The core of these efforts involves steps to maximize motivation for abstinence, helping alcoholics to restructure their lives without alcohol, and taking steps to minimize a return, or relapse, to substance-using behaviors. Intervention The goal in this step is to break through feelings of denial and to help the patient recognize the adverse consequences likely to occur if the disorder is not treated. Reaching out to the Family The family can be of great help in the intervention. Detoxification Most people with alcohol dependence have relatively mild symptoms when they stop drinking Mild or Moderate Withdrawal--can be managed by giving medicine for 3 to 5days. Severe Withdrawal --in hospital. Rehabilitation For most patients, rehabilitation includes three major components: (1) continued efforts to increase and maintain high levels of motivation for abstinence, (2) work to help the patient readjust to a lifestyle free of alcohol, and (3) relapse prevention. if any further details are required Let me know.

Hello sir I have a habit of rocking back and forth. And it is not related with anxiety or depression. I do it all day whether im happy or sad or depressed. Please tell how can I stop it. Many doctors just say take small steps to avoid this habit. But they do not understand that I can not. My body moves involuntarily. I have no control. Suppose I try to stop I become restless and after few seconds body moves itself. There is no doctor nearby I can consult for therapy or medicines. Please help. Reasons I want to stop: 1. I spend all day home doing this as it is soothing. But this had made me a person with social anxiety which make me depressed. I have read on internet about this. 2. I cannot study without it. So I can not go in a good college out of my hometown as I can not share room with anyone in hostel nd without hostel life is not enjoyable. Hope you understood. This ruined my career. Made me depressed. If I still get any help I will drop a year and go on in my life. Hoping for a great answer. Please.

Your beginning and end of question do not correlate at all. At the beginning you say your movements are not related to anxiety and depression. But towards the end you yourself commit that you are depressed due to your inability to constrol these movements and feel anxious in social surroundings. That has even kept you away from attending colleges and staying with people in hostel. Dear Nitin, I think that is good enough reason for you to understand that these movements have become an obsession and compulsion for you to get rid of restlessness that prevails if you don't do it. You definitely need a consultation. Visit a psychiatrist in your vicinity with complete details for treatmnet. In case you need assistance online you may contact me.

I am 31 year old male suffering from serious anxiety disorder with digestion problem from past 9 years. I have blurred vision and giddiness. Very scared of closed spaces. Taking etlaam ds from past 4 years, but no use at all. Just wanted to check whether paxil 12.5mg will work, or do I need to take anything else. Kindly suggest.

Thanks for your query. Behaviour therapy can be very useful in your case than drugs. Fear of closed spaces is usually secondary to some subconcious cause which you may have in your mind. It is important that you undergo counselling with a psychotherapist to uncover what was the triggering factor to develop fear of closed spaces. Once that fear is resolved you will cope better. If you have any further query please ask.

This fear of death can be quite crippling if you tend to believe in it. Obviously you do. In other words you have a trust problem: trusting in life and in the developments in medicine and other huge benefits of modern science. Now this kind of fear has some basis from some traumatic experience from childhood. If you have already identified that it would help tremendously. The tendency to use right brain, which has a penchant for exaggerating things quite out of proportion, is your handicap. You must meet with a counselor and seriously study all the possible ways that you fear death and the hypochondriacally suggestive factors that you must be obsessing about. When you check these out with another person you trust, you can see your discrepancy in perception and belief in comparison, and perhaps that will help you to change the outlook. You need to have explicit faith in the therapist for this to be effective. Also you will need to examine if the fear about death is related to any particular aspect of your health and explore the measures you can take to stave off that possibility. This is a very important boosting action to take, and you will feel physically able and fit. I am referring to regular physical exercises especially of the aerobic kind; eating healthily, and stress management. But I think that the greatest benefit you can really experience is from the spiritual angle, if you have faith in god. If you have not explored this, you must. For this you must speak to a spiritual counselor or even a psycho spiritual one. Death is an eventuality and accepting that with good faith will really go a long way to love life, to live life to the fullest, and to enjoy every moment of existence as though there is no tomorrow. Everybody else is living life knowing that death will come to them someday but that it can be hastened by neglecting your lifestyle or abusing healthy living. The spiritual pursuit is the best bet among a lot of other measures too which are not possible to mention in this forum.

Dear lybrate-user. Thanks for your query. Antidepressant need at least 2 week to show their effect. Unfortunately some patients do not get improvement on one medicine so we have to try 2 to 3 medicine. In such cases we also do cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) which has significantly good results. Get your thyroid profile, Vit B12, Vit D3 done. Start exercise and spent time with friend and family member. Listen to loud music. In your case CBT will work better. All d best!
