My name is osama and I am suffering from smoking I want to leave that but I can not so please give me some suggestion to stop this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You can if you persevere. 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.

I am 38 years old lady. I am very short tempered. I have high anger specifically in menstrual days. I feel depressed, irritated and angry in periods. I can't control myself. I had too many break ups in relations because of my depression and anger. Now I feel insecurity. Life becomes tough for me. What should I do to control my anger? I don't know what I say during my anger. Then I feel guilty but it would be too late. Please help me to save my relationship.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
During Menses mood changes is common and you can only control it . But for depression you need antidepressants and do meditation and yoga. Some of the "typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper ANGER: There is a saying "Frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression." Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. GIVING UP: Giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. LOSS OF CONFIDENCE: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that If we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself "It is worth it!" and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. STRESS: is the "wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. DEPRESSION: Depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. OTHER REACTIONS: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions Whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Learning To Deal With Frustration It is unrealistic to believe you can rid yourself of frustration forever, but you can learn to do things to minimize your frustrations and to make sure you do not engage in unhealthy responses to frustration. You will need to learn to distinguish between what you hope will happen, what will probably happen, and what actually happened. Life inevitably has its ups and downs -- its moments of relaxation and times of tension. When you learn to truly accept this reality, you come one step closer to being able to deal with frustration in a healthy way. There are several types of problems that we encounter in everyday living: those which you know can be solved, those which you are not sure if they can be solved or not, those you know are totally out of your control, and those you are so confused about that you do not even know what the problem is. You need to be able to accurately assess your abilities to alter situations that prevent you from solving your problems and reaching your goal. Then you will be able to assess which of the types of problems you have encountered, and you will then be able to develop a realistic plan. Learning to take things in stride will also help you to be more content and happy which, in turn, will help you to more easily overcome anger and frustration. If you are upset, sad, anxious, or depressed you will have less patience and tolerance for everything and everybody. Treatment of Frustration Frustration and anger are fundamental emotions that everyone experiences from time to time. From a very early age, people learn to express frustration by copying the behaviour they see modelled around them, and by expressing frustration and angry behaviour and seeing what they can get away with. We all suffer from frustration, and being able to effectively deal with frustration is a very important skill to develop. Each person needs to learn how to control frustration, so that it does not control them. The following is a brief overview of types of frustration management programs and resources that have proved helpful in understanding and controlling frustration and anger. I have found several approaches to treatment that have been effective for my clients including: Individual and Group Therapy for Anger Management. A therapist who can observe and analyse your behaviour from an impartial perspective, can help you with your reality testing. A therapist knows many effective frustration and anger management strategies and will be able to help you develop a personalized set of strategies for changing both your thinking and behaviour. Depending on your needs, your therapist may work with you on breathing or meditation exercises to reduce frustration, safe and appropriate emotional and physical techniques to release frustration, communication, or cognitive restructuring (a method for disputing and changing the way you think). Relaxation and exercise Simple relaxation tools such as deep breathing and relaxing imagery can help calm down feelings of frustration and anger. Breathing deeply, from your diaphragm, will help while breathing from your chest won't relax you. While breathing, you can slowly repeat a calm word or phrase such as "relax," "calm down" or "take it easy." Non-strenuous exercise, like yoga, can relax your muscles and make you feel much calmer. Strenuous and vigorous exercise can also help you to work off frustration and angry feelings. Frustration can have a highly damaging impact on our frame of mind. It can turn a positive person into a person who sees nearly everything as a problem. It can slow you down, inhibit your progress, and at times completely immobilize you. We can become so wound up with our frustration that we do not, and cannot, think or act rationally. Our frustration can often exacerbate a situation and create a vicious circle. If we are convinced that our actions are not working, no matter how hard we try, we are much more likely to reduce, rather than increase, our chances of success. Remember, you cannot eliminate frustration. In spite of all your efforts, things will happen that will cause you frustration and anger. Life is filled with frustration, pain, loss, and the unpredictable actions of others. You can't change that; but you can change the way you let such events affect you. If you feel that your degree of frustration is really out of control, if it is having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life, you might consider counselling to learn how to handle it better. Please contact me Privately on this site or another therapist.

If he has been taking the same dosage for so many years without any modifications made in it then that may be the reason of him not getting better. Because dosage needs to be adjusted from time to time on the basis of how he feels.

Dear lybrate-user, Social phobia is a condition where one has persistent fear of social situations. It is a treatable condition. First of all, complete evaluation will be needed for confirming the diagnosis. Accordingly treatment can be initiated. The treatment of social phobia will include medications and psychotherapy sessions. You should consult a psychiatrist for getting yourself evaluated and treated. I do hope that with treatment, you are able to overcome your social anxiety. Best wishes.

The Golden Key to Accept the Things That You Can't Change

Psychologist, Hubli-Dharwad
The Golden Key to Accept the Things That You Can't Change

There are certain aspects of our lives, which we may feel are not upto the mark and you might want to change them. For example, consider a situation that you suffer from dwarfism and people mock you about your height. You may wish that you were taller so that you are not ridiculed anymore. You may feel physically inadequate and stay depressed quite frequently.

No matter what the odds are, you should be able to find a support system somewhere, be it in your friends, family or within yourself. There are a number of methods which you may find useful in dealing with these kinds of situations.

  1. Mediation: Meditation may help in focusing your mind and keeping your mind free from negative thoughts. It helps in improving your concentration and broadens your mind. It may also help in seeing situations in a different manner and in a different light thus, helps you overcome difficult episodes in life.
  2. See things from a different vantage point:Usually we see things from one single standpoint and perceive them in a single manner. It is advised to see the same thing through multiple viewpoints and multiple vantage points in order to get a broader understanding of the entire situation. This helps in making a more logical and balanced decision.
  3. Focus on the positives: Let’s understand with the help of a simple anecdote. One day a teacher gave a student a white piece of paper with a black dot at the center and asked the student what he thought of the paper. The student said that there was a black dot on the paper. Usually, most people tend to focus on the black dot and not the white space surrounding it. Similarly, in life, you should see the positives instead of concentrating only on the negative aspects. This will help you sail through a number of difficult stages.
  4. Build resilience: Being resilient is a very good quality to have, as it can help you overcome a lot of setbacks in life. Problems are a part of life as they might result from external circumstances which you will have no control over. Hence, it is always wise to accept the situation and move on in life.

Dear lybrate user, you need to talk to someone who you trust. Or please talk to a counsellor. About the situation at home and about hiding your depression from your parents, I understand that you have your own valid reasons for doing this. But in the interest of you and all at home, it will be very helpful if you can talk to your parents about your own emotional state and other family problems. Taking too many pills and self medication is quite harmful. It will damage your lever. You feel like committing suicide because you think there is no way out from your problems. But there are always many options available, we need to understand these options. You are very young hence at your age probably you are not aware of multiple choices that can be made in any given situation. If you are not able to express your feelings to anyone, please consult a counsellor, who will help you in expressing your feelings and finding various options to come out of your difficult situations. Take care.

Anti anxiety drugs decrease the sex drive and decreased sex drive naturally will decrease the ability to achieve orgasm. But if you are able to have sex and achieve orgasm then possibility of pregnancy (becoming a father) is also normal.

Focus on questions from the chapter you are going to read, it will create interest then read it for fifteen minutes, close the book, and recall what you have read. You could not recall all points but dont get upset. Do it persistently reproduce or write down before going to sleep what you have read in that day. It will improve your memory.

You are at rick even if you smoke one cigarette a day. There are 4000 chemical substances in cigarette smoke. So the danger is real. So do not worry about that but do quit and live a healthy life. It is never too late to change. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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.

Nervousness seems to have immense adverse impact in your life & in your day to day functioning too, with negative impact in your studies & so frustration had started developing in you. The symptoms you are suffering from indicate that you are having excess anxiety within, & you even panic in some situations. Anxiety is a state which is characterized by unpleasant feeling of nervousness, uneasiness or worry, with lots of emotional turmoil within, leading to nervous behavior. It a normal emotion which occurs in response to any stress & it resolves spontaneously when the stress is gone. Everyone experiences anxiety now & then to some extent .But it is a disorder if the anxiety is very distressing, difficult to cope with, affects day to day functioning & disrupts normal life of a person. In Anxiety disorder the affected person experiences various symptoms, which include: •Feelings of panic, fear, and uneasiness •Sleep disturbance •Palpitation or rapid heartbeat •Cold or sweaty hands or feet •Shortness of breath •Restless feeling •Tingling sensation or numbness in hands & feet •Dizziness •Vomiting tendency •Stiffness of body •Dry mouth •Butterflies in stomach, a state where the person feels certain discomfort in stomach •Problem with thinking clearly, concentrating & distraction, leading to forgetfulness •Indigestion & abdominal pain •Frequent urination •Feeling weak or tired •Headache •Having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom •Lightheaded. Anxiety Disorder may be: 1. Specific, in which the anxiety occurs in response to specific stress. 2. Generalized Anxiety disorder where there may be no specific triggering factors, & the anxiety symptoms are present all the time. 3. Secondary to physical illnesses like Heart disease, Diabetes, Thyroid problems such as hyperthyroidism, certain Respiratory disorders, Drug abuse or withdrawal, Chronic pain or irritable bowel syndrome, certain tumors that produce hormone imbalance etc. 4. Sometimes anxiety can be a side effect of certain medication. 5. A person may also get Panic attack, which is sudden episodes of anxiety lasting few minutes, when the person gets intense anxiety symptoms. It usually occurs without any triggering factor. The Anxiety or nervousness you are suffering from is usually triggered by stressful situations like exam time. Get yourself evaluated by a Psychiatrist, who will prescribe you medicines or advice you counseling sessions accordingly. The two main treatments for anxiety disorders are psychotherapy and medications or a combination of the two. Along with, take the following measures: •Lead a healthy lifestyle. Go for a walk, exercise regularly, do some yoga or relaxation techniques daily. •Have adequate sleep. •Explore your own talents & feel good about yourself. •Set goals which are realistic & within your capability & try to pursue them. •Maintain a daily routine. •Stay away from substance of abuse like alcohol, cannabis, inhalants, drugs etc. •Enhance your coping skills & problem solving skills. •Spend time with friends, family members or well wishers with whom you feel comfortable & positive. •Rest in a dark room. •Practice deep breathing & relaxation exercises •Eat healthy food & reduce caffeine, tea, cola, and chocolate consumption. During exam it seems you experience intense anxiety symptoms that affects your performance in exam. The underlying anxiety is leading to your forgetting the answers you prepare well, impairs your concentration & thinking, leading to your slow & unsatisfactory performance. Excess anxiety also temporarily block one’s thinking, judgment & decision taking capacity because of which you fail to recollect your answer spontaneously, nor could see your mistakes even after revision. Seek professional help early. With medications & counseling sessions, you will definitely come out of this problem. Take following measures to deal with the nervousness during exam: •Start studying early & study daily from the start of your academic session •Revise your lessons regularly •Have a plan to manage your time of study •Study relaxly with a calm mind & take small breaks during studies. •Be confident of yourself & do not compare yourself with others. •If you feel stressed while studying, talk to someone, listen to some music or do something that relax you. •Create the environment in your study room similar to your exam hall. Then you will find your exam hall comfortable & familiar. •Expect exam outcomes rationally & what is within your capability. Impractical & Over expectation that is beyond one’s capability brings in fear & frustration. •Take your class time seriously by taking notes summarizing what your teacher has said. •During the days of preparation for exam eat healthy, stay hydrated & avoid substances of abuse, as a healthy body prepares a healthy mind. •On the day prior to exam sleep adequately. •Reach the examination hall before time so that you are relaxed & mentally prepared for the exam. Do not guess the exam outcomes just target to give your best. Think positive. Start writing with a calm mind. Be aware of the anxiety symptoms, & if you feel anxiety is building up, just concentrate on breathing in & out slowly or tighten & relax your shoulders or stretch your legs. You can also take a small break & drink some water •Do not look around; just concentrate on your paper. •Revise quickly once you finish answering. It’s a good quality to be sensitive, but it never good to be over sensitive, as it starts affecting your normal functioning. One should always enhance one’s good qualities & try to overcome one’s bad qualities. From others one should take their good & ignore their bad. Deal with criticisms by others in a matured way. If anyone scolds you, criticize you or tells something that hurt you, rather than reacting or feeling bad, first ponder over it & think deeply. If you find out that whatever said has some reality & some fault was in you then rectify it & try not to repeat it. & if you find out it was only a baseless criticism, then meet the concerned person & politely explain the fact. If someone younger to you behaves immaturely, you should reply maturely. Then they will look high on you. If you also behave the same way they did, no healthy solution will come; rather the problem will increase further. Retaliating with physical violence is never a healthy way of solving problem. Violence attracts more violence in return.

Hi One of the simplest and most effective ways to induce sleep is to rub some oil on the scalp and the soles of the feet before going to bed. Use sesame oil, brahmi oil, jasmine oil, or coconut oil and massage gently for a few minutes. Slightly warming the oil before applying is helpful. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take sarpgandha vati 1-1 tab twice a day. Take pranacharya no tens capsule 1-1 twice a day. Avoid spicy food. Junk food. Fermented food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early in the morning.
