Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives. If these tips do not help you, you can meet a sexologist and he will guide you more specifically.

Hi, i've a healthy relationship with a guy, but m really worried abt him, he is always saying things like I feel ionely, not loved and that no one cares, no one understands, he has suicidal thoughts sometimes which makes me very frightened and I really want to help him, what should I do?

He may be going through some emotional turmoil or some professional difficulties. Have open communication with him about it without giving any advice and just listening to him. If there is nothing like this, he may be just going through low phase where he wants more attention and support. Don't let him feel like a victim, which he already does. He is just feeling pity for himself which needs to be stopped.

What is the best way to leave cigarette.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
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.

How to increase concentration power of mind for focussing better on new things or how to stay calm how to stay cool.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques or you may consult a psychologist. Take care.

Dear madam, as you said, you have your own emotions and he is behaving like a dumb. May be he might have got married to use your money also to enjoy with his girlfriend without knowing anyone around him. He will not let you to leave the home, coz he needs your money. I guess that he is not getting satisfaction out of your relationship. First of all, ask him what bothers him not to have a peaceful life with you? is that the money or the extramarital relationship? if he decides for sure that he doesn't want to lead life with u, stop giving him money or your salary. Tell him that you want the money for your safety as he decided to leave. Tell his parents that he is in contact with another lady so that he is not having proper personal life with u, it is important because he may think of situations to transfer his mistakes on you. Tell your brother and mother that this what the situation is going on. Do not stay with him! coz without his knowledge or by any situational chance if you get pregnant, do you think that he will take care of you? if you say yes, then will try to give him a chance to learn from his mistakes. But if your mind says that he will never regret for his mistakes, then it is the time for your call. Coz you have ask questions in your mind that does he prepare his mind for the child in future? does he spend time and money for the upbringing of your child? so you need to walk away from that place dear. If your family members forces you to get married to the next person, then think of it! meanwhile focus on your job and earn some money for your future safety. Learn from this mistake that do never give your personal valuable things like passbook and jewels to anyone whom you r going to live with unless you have full faith in him.

Make him read this. This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. You may also consult me.

Hi Just little curious to know if there is a solution to have a happy life, especially mentally. Without having our negativity being dominating on us. A solution that can make a human mind free of negativity and can give a complete control on it. I do not know what would be the right step to make myself feel light, mentally. Consulting a doctor might make me feel little more weaker, but I need to. It is not a fight against my mind, but would like to learn how have a complete control on it. I think I need a bit of assistance from someone.

Hi lybrate-user, its not a weakness to consult a doctor. Once you choose hope anything is possible. We all get stressed from time to time and only thing we have control over is to how we chose to respond to it. Situations are neutral its our perception about things which make them negative and positive. We can choose to be positive and find good in everything we come across in our lives. A healthy mind resides in a healthy body. Have proper sleep, food intake - nutrition, exercise daily, keep a good social circle and cultivate positive thoughts. The more positive things you say to yourself the more positive you feel the more positivity you attract from the enviroment. This is no rocket science. The key to happiness is acceptance. You can start some meditation too. Consult a psychologist for same. All the best.

My father is 46 years old and he drinks alcohol in day and also in night in much more quantity and he also want to stop drinking alcohol but he can't stop. So please help me and give me tips to stop drinking alcohol? thanku.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your father has a good situation that he needs help and he also wants help. This is the best situation to give it up. Now it is difficult to do because he has become addicted to alcohol and has a lot to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children (including you) will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with your mother and the children and whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast.

Hello, Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1. Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2. Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head.

No. Any problem if it goes without treatment will never go off on own. E. G. If you have high fever and keep hoping it will go on its own. It will not. Any illness should not be ignored but treated. You are very young and deep depression you talk of - is curable fast - at your age with right diagnosis and treatment. First get psychological testing from a qualified and trained psychologist- a specialist for diagnosis of mental illness and providing counselling and psychotherapy- treatment without medicines. Based on report get recommended treatment from psychologist - if your depression like symptoms have psychological basis or take medicines from psychiatrist if it is an illness to be treated.

I am suffering from mental disturbance because I have fail in love. What should i do to rid of this?
Accept the reality. This is the most difficult stage. Mind will not accept the reality easily but, you have to do it. Stop becoming victim. Accept the reality and stop self destruction. You don't need to prove anything to anybody. Understand this and prepare your mind set. Stop having self pity and make your life interesting. And surely for that you don't require your ex. You are the only one who can make it. Get busy, stop living lonely. Homeopathic treatment and counselling is suggested in all kinds of depression. Homeopathic medicines are safe and natural. Your feedback and recommendation matters. Thank-you.

How to handle my body to control from tensions and depressions. I think I have phonological disorders. So suggest me ...
Overall you must be fit physically by regular exercise and proper diet, mentally strong by meditation, good sleep, and practicing mental hygiene, and emotionally strong by dealing with your feelings as soon as they arise. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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.
