My friend smokes 3 cigarette everyday what will be the consequence after 3 month.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

We cannot say anything about this level of consumption. Smoking is bad, period. If he is waiting for something to happen, then he is a reactive type. Once something happens healthwise, he will be too late and he will have to focus on cure. "whereas it is better for him to live on the preventive mode and quit smoking right now.

Dear lybrate-user, don't worry for some people break ups helped them after that they got better ones, from teenage to till marriage love is very common, but every individual thinks that it is only her problem it is not, some people they express some people will not, when you love you need to build family 1. To have family life we need money 2. To earn money we need to have good job to get into this cycle, most important don't spoil your career.

I am 24 years old and I am a chain smoker. What is the best way to leave smoking. Pls give me solution.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. 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. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

What happens to people with autism when they grow up?

Since autism is a spectrum and people have varying skill levels, future is not the same for all people with autism. A lot of children who are able to cope with mainstream school /college education go undiagnosed and are successful at jobs but may be considered quiet or reserved adults by their family, friends and colleagues.

Several adults on the spectrum who have been diagnosed, and been in a supportive environment in their childhood, have written books which have facilitated and enhanced the understanding of the condition. We have examples of people who are professionally very successful. Some have gone on to become famous authors and at least one has won a Nobel Prize. Some advocate and speak for themselves and for other people with autism in the community.

Some of those who are fully independent in their everyday life may find it difficult to sustain the demands of a job and work environment. Some are married and some choose not to.

Some of those who are married face difficulties in forming relationships with their spouses and carry out responsibilities that come with marriage and having a family, and may continue to need support of another person in planning and carrying out the activities in running a house.

As in every other condition, some people on the spectrum will always need support in life and may never be fully independent. As yet, in India, there are few schools which have an environment or the attitude to accommodate the special needs of people on the autism spectrum. Vocational centers and employment opportunities are even fewer.

For most parents struggling with getting services for their child with autism, one of the biggest worry is‘what after us?’ As yet, there are not enough and appropriate lifespan services for people with autism where they can lead a life of dignity and respect.

However, with support from people around them including the family, friends, neighbours and teachers all of them can lead a happy and meaningful life.

Since she was a sexual partner, your obsession with your ex-partner is normal. You need to ignore this thought with CBT.

Dear doctor, I am 24 years old girl single. May be get married by six months. I have a great gud hearted friend in life. I like him a lot, sometimes I feel like he is more than a friend n he feels the same. But we both never shared this feeling to each other. We became friends in facebook 5 years ago. N we met 3 years ago. I never felt any insecurity with him as he is unique n very very good hearted brave and kind person. To be fair I fell in love with him but I never revealed it to him, though I propose him, he can not marry me right now, he has many responsibilities and ambitions in life. So I dont wanna make him in a trouble as he can think about marriage only after 5 yrs. He is 26 now. Now what my problem is. I recently went to a women's expo from there I got lot of information regarding pregnancy and other girls health issues and also about sex life. On that day I came back to home and shared my day with him, and showed him some pics regarding pregnancy taken at the expo. For the first time we chatted about these kind of things and it made him tempted. After that he started a lit bit flirting with me but I managed him. He became so. Open to me chatting these things in these days and I never restricted him as I like it. But still. We are good friends never crossed the limit. He is now far away from me. We chat on WhatsApp only. Recently He was very depressed and I tried to make him normal. While chatting He asked me to have a hot chat. But to maintain the friendship's beauty I refused it. He said that sexting can make both of us feel relaxed as I too have some depressions in life. But still I refused his request. I really do not want to spoil the beauty of a friendship. But on the other side I want to help him. At least for a one time he is asking to have a hit chat just to relax. I am very much confused doctor. Should I go for it? Or should I not? If I do hot chat with him what are the things I should be careful? Sometimes I feel like it is like cheating my future hubby.(but My friend is also a good guy n I dont feel any kind of insecurities with him. Even I too get tempted to have hot chat with him. What should I do doctor?

Hello miss a lot of boys and girls mix around a lot, there is much more freedom in knowing every friendship is not branded as romantic relationship. In addition today's youth have internet and chat media available to them with lots of privacy and freedom. But there is also a lot confusion amongst friendships as to where to draw the line. On the chat media people tend to open up lot more and expose even their weaknesses. All people who chat with you may not have honest and honorable intentions. There are a lot of sex predators who can cheat you and use you by getting you involved in sex crimes. Hot sext chats can be called sex crimes too, because here the other person is using you to get his sexual gratification. Once you discussed some reproductive issues with your friend and he now thinks you may be available for entertaining his sexual needs? just observe this, what does that tell you? he is not interested in committed relationship with you but wants you to engage in such practices, do you think he is really trustworthy? all mobile and internet chats can be recorded and accessed by the server. The person you are chatting with can use them against you and tell other people that you are a girl with loose morale and lack character, furthermore he may use one time incidence to pressurise you into doing similar or more dangerous things with his other friends. Keep all the possibilities in mind and stay away from chat media. If your friend does not appreciate your safety and honour, simply block him, but do protect your self.

I am studying be final year now I got problem with reading and I do the part time job as purohitya my question is lack of interest in studies what to do now.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your lack of interest may be due to the fact that you are in the wrong course. It is possible that your academic pursuits may not hold your attention much. If you have done an aptitude test and career guidance counseling you will be able to know whether the chosen disciplines are what suits your natural skills and talents. Please do that immediately and see if you have to change your course. The other consideration is that you may be technically inclined and so you could do some technical training course. And if that appeals to you you can go for regular engineering and do less years, after you finish the technical course.

You are a strong person- you have made a bold choice to move on in life! if you could take a bold stand like this, surely, you can implement it too. Please focus on your career as this is the time of life when you can make or destroy your career at present you seem to be ruining your present and future by putting all energy into hanging on to a relationship that takes you nowhere. Rather, hang on fully to your career that will take you to greater heights and make you successful in life, in every sphere- personal, financial, social. Best of luck.

Stress affect our mind and body in various ways, inability to fall asleep is one of them. Your friend should first try stress management, reduce stress, try to solve your problem which is causing stress, talk about your problem with family and friends who can suggest ways to solve your problems, practice deep breathing. If your friend still has sleep problem then consult Psychiatrist for further treatment.

I am a pessimistic thinker, I think very negative from childhood. Is my thinking influenced by genetics or is there any relation between genes and thinking I know environment plays major role but how much role does genes play in development of thinking Please I want the cause of problem.

The good news is with awareness you can always change the way you are thinking. Thoughts have great influence over our feelings and behaviour. The way we interpret our environment is part of learned behaviour from significant people in our lives. So it's possible to change the way we think about people and situations. Do consult a counsellor to explore ways you can do the same.

For this you can go for following home remedy consumption of onions. Onions are great food for helping cleanse the lungs. Also you can go for one of the most powerful antioxidants is ginger. Adding ginger to your diet can have many positive health benefits. Ginger provides a strong tool for releasing toxins that are in the lungs. Consuming tea made from the ginger root can help facilitate easier breathing.

Dear , from the given information, it is difficult to diagnose your mother's problem. But it is evident that she is treated for depression and anxiety disorder. Both these conditions are mental disorders. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Please consult a psychologist for a consultation. Take care.

If it is only a loud sound that makes you shaky for few minutes. Then there is no need to worry about it. But if you are having anxiety apart from such situations also then we need to evaluate your problem.
