My age is 27 and I have developed very bad habit of smoking, some times I smoke more then 2 packs, please let me know how can I reduce the effects of Smoking. please help.

Rather than reducing the effects you need to stop smoking as the number of cigarettes are dangerously high. Consult a psychiatrist to reduce craving and get withdrawal treated. All the best.

Sir I smoked for 1 year now I want to be a singer before 10 days I quit smoking so then how long does it takes to heal my vocal chords.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Congratulations on your quitting smoking. It could take ten days to one month or six month for your body to completely repair your body and vocal chords. This depends on your smoking period. As you are just 19 years, your smoking period could be very less. Don't worry. Take care.

When I close my eyes it's almost black there no picture/no memory.! When I read & understand something I become able to explain it but as soon as I start another topic or discussion ; I can't recall what I had explained earlier. When I close my eye it's almost black never know what I know at all. But Still I pass my exam (CA - CPT & IPCC) although I cannot teach same question paper after 2-3 days! I listen songs but my mind never catches songs beat; every time I listen it's feel like i'm listening for 1st time or had listen in few year back just tiny bit of thing hit my mind.

You may be experiencing a naturally induced regression fro some childhood related unresolved issue that is now surfacing to seek a resolution. You could meet with a counselor along with your parents and find out some causes for your tendency. You do not mention your age but if you are near abouts your late adolescence, some of this are accountable. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some 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, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is 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 too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

I think that his decision to stop talking to her was a good thing. There is not point reviving an old relationship when she is married. It can only disturb her like it has done now. You have to be gentle and kind in helping her out of this depression if this is the cause. You will also need to love her more passionately, not necessarily for sex, but for the person, she is and give her a lot of attention. If she has met with a doctor for some medication, that alone is not enough. She must also go for counseling and learn how to tackle this situation, and to see how positive this development is, really. In the meantime, take her out for walks and brisk exercise. Meet a spiritual; leader too and let her express her thoughts and feelings. Now there are several options to consider doing: bring home a lot of people as friends, include the relatives also. If you bring her friends home, it will be ideal. She will find it difficult to ignore them or not to be hospital to them. If she was or is working, invite those colleagues too. As she gets comfortable with meeting people, she will gradually get out of her depression. Organize parties, meetings, spiritual talks, get-togethers, functions, and prayer meetings at home, regularly and frequently, to literally bombard her with a social life. This will have a telling effect over time. You have got to be patient, and give her some room. I don’t know the details of her love-life to comment on it but she has to move on and meet people and in particular to rekindle the love in your relationship with her. In the meantime you could get a pet that you know she will like and let her only interact with it. Caring for the pet alone will be a full time task, if she buys into it, fully.

You are having mild form of depression.In the initial stages or in the milder forms or in people who are not aware of the disease, depression can go unidentified till its implications become too obvious. People often overlook it as a mere low mood or some start assuming it as a part of their psychological makeup. Homeopathic treatment for depression is great form of alternative medicine and natural therapy for depression .The best part of homeopathic treatment is that the homeopathic medicines are natural and totally side effects free and its long term use leads to no damage to the body. You can consult me online through Lybrate for counselling and medicines. Your feedback and recommendation matters. Thank-you.

Give some gifts. If you study I will give this. Tell like that. You teach lesson like easy stories. Children do not know the importance of the studies. But we should develop slowly. Ask what are the problems in school. Better to behave like a friend with her. Do not give direct studies study well like that. Sit with her slowly teach in normal manner and easy manner. Treat to her as friend. Spend most of the time. Take her out of the places. Invite good study friends of her. Better to talk to them in a pleasant manner. Be friendly and be happy. You can only solve this problem. Mother is a teacher and good friend also. Best of luck.

Alcohol Problem - How to Identify If Someone Close to You Is Suffering?

Alcohol Problem - How to Identify If Someone Close to You Is Suffering?

Do you worry about your friend or relative’s drinking habits? You are not alone. There are people who struggle for years with the same question - How can I tell if the person I love is an alcoholic or not?
Well, the good news is that you don’t need to be a medical professional to figure out the right answer to this vital question. Read on to find simple ways to know whether your loved one suffers from alcohol addiction.

First up is a short quiz about drinking habits, developed by Dr. John Ewing to identify alcohol addiction. Treat this as a pointer and take your loved one to an expert, if it points towards alcohol addiction. You can ask these questions directly to your loved one, or you can answer these questions on their behalf.

According to the developers, one "yes" to the four quiz questions signals a problem, and more than one “yes” means that it's time for you or your loved one to get professional help.

  1. Have you ever felt you should cut down on your drinking?
  2. Have people annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?
  3. Have you ever felt bad or guilty about your drinking?
  4. Have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover?”

There are many signs of a serious drinking problem. These include certain behaviours such as:

  1. Drinking just for getting drunk
  2. Drinking alone
  3. Keeping alcohol consumption a secret
  4. Drinking to escape problems
  5. Hiding alcohol bottles
  6. Experiencing withdrawal symptoms like getting irritated or experiencing nervousness, nausea, getting shakes, breaking out into a cold sweat, and getting hallucinations when unable to source alcohol
  7. Having problems at work, school, or home, as a result of alcohol consumption
  8. Losing interest in activities you or your friend used to enjoy
  9. Having blackouts due to heavy drinking
  10. Anger and extreme irritation

Other extreme behaviors to watch out for are:

  1. Being able to drink an awful lot of alcohol
  2. Trouble stopping once your loved one starts drinking
  3. A powerful urge to drink

There is another scientific way to determine, if your loved one is an alcoholic. In the US, medical professionals commonly use a criteria, listed in the fourth edition of the ‘Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders’. According to it, the signs and symptoms of alcoholism are clearly laid down and it states that alcohol dependent people:

  1. Will drink more to get their desired effect from alcohol
  2. Experience withdrawal symptoms when the effect of alcohol wears off
  3. Drink larger amounts of alcohol over a longer period of time
  4. Will be unable to consistently control their drinking
  5. Will leave important work for drinking
  6. Will spend a lot of time during the day getting alcohol, drinking it, and recovering from hangovers.
  7. Continue to use alcohol, despite knowing that their chronic physical or psychological problem is caused due to alcohol.
  8. To be declared alcohol-dependent, your loved one must experience at least three of these criteria during a year.

However, there is still no one definite test to diagnose alcohol-use disorders. Therefore, professionals diagnose them by making use of the patient’s comprehensive medical, family, and mental-health information. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.
