I am a 51 years male having normal health and physical fitness. I am smoking cigarettes for the past 32 years. Previously I use to smoke a lot but now I smoke round about 8-10 cigarettes a day. In the recent past I find I am coughing a lot and sometimes it aches in the stomach when I cough. I have tried quitting smoking several times but it is very difficult for me to quit smoking completely. What are the remedies? What medicines should I take?

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Dreams are the realm of the unconscious mind. Every body dreams every night but only some recall their dreams more than others; and some recall them very vividly. If you have indigestion, you are more likely to remember them. These dreams can be quite revealing or may mean nothing at all. So it is very subjective to the dreamer and his or her circumstances. You could take these dreams to a dream analyst for an interpretation to garner some meanings out of them. My concern is that there seems to be some stress associated with them, which means that these dreams have an element of emotions that may be seeking expression. So talk to a counselor about these emotions and take care of them regularly in the form of healthy expressions. You may also attempt to sleep on your left ear only and change your dreams into positive ones.

HII. I AM 28 . I think I am suffering from depression . From past one year I feel as if I am stuck up with life. Life has become stagnant. I cry for hours and that time dnt feel like talking to anybody except my best friend as she consoles me to a great extent. I feel like doing something to myself to overcome al the stress bt at times gets scared so try shortcuts by either by being alone or else trying some sleep inducing pills so that at least for some time I can be at a relaxing state of mind. I have always been a short tempered person bt eventually have felt that my anger has become uncontrollable. I have never tried to hurt anybody physically bt at the same time eventually I have so many tried hurt myself. I feel like leaving everything as I feel there is nobody to whom I can open to , or who will support. I dnt know what to do as lately I have lost interest in doing things . I like doing nothing. What should I do?

What have to do to increase the memory power of a man who had suffered a accident.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If his memory has been affected by the accident there is very little you can do because there may have been some organic damage. However, if he does extensive physiotherapy along with neurological exercises he could probably recover some of it.

Hello Doctor, I am facing some psychological issues for a long time now and I am unable to overcome it, I need some professional advice. Tall women, I like them and feel more attracted towards them. But, I feel intimidated when they around me at work, in public transport or any event and also in family and friends. It doesn't matter if I know them or not my confidence and self esteem are always low around them. I couldn't think straight when they are around and couldn't able to make eye contact while having a conversation with them. It affects my communication skills a lot as well as my productivity. I have tried not to let these things affect me but there's no improvement. Also I tend to compare myself with them and then I self-pity my self and blame god, society, my family, ultimately feel distressed. I am short you must have assessed it by now. Sometimes I feel women don't find me attractive because I am short or anyone who is short in today's generation. While Growing up we all must have heard that "Women like tall men or they find tall men attractive and they would like to settle down with a tall man" Growing up I thought and treated these sayings as a cliché but now I think this cliche has become a fact for me. Whenever I have interacted with a girl, they always put me in their friend circle or see me as their brother. I don't hit on every girl I see, I am not a pervert. Yeah I have liked few girls, but they didn't feel the same about me when I told them about my feelings and I am totally cool with it, I have no hard feelings for them. But the aftermath is, this made me feel like that I am not good enough. SO COULD YOU PLEASE OFFER SOME ADVICE ON HOW I COULD LIVE EFFICIENTLY WITHOUT LETTING THESE THINGS AFFECT ME. THANK YOU.

Many couples make strange bedfellows. In other words, not all attractions are suitable according to appearances and yours will also likely be the same. There is a 'chemistry' as they say, or there is something that clicks when you find your true mate, to some extent. Tall, dark, ahndso0me men are a hard to come by, but the personality of an individual is dependent on five areas: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual fitness. How you carry yourself is more important than your height and shape and size. Then the most important feature to find in someone is their character. By now you must have assessed that these are things that you can develop. You need to develop good and admirable character judged by your value system. Your physical fitness is primed by regular exercise and diet. You may, in addition, attend a personality development course, good conversation course, public speaking course, and a self-grooming course to really project yourself as a suitable and desirable candidate. Above all, you must be happy with yourself first. You may be falsely seeking tall girls as a projection of your need to be tall. So develop your overall personality and you will see girls flocking to be your​ friend!

I suspect that you have made a slight blunder that may be the cause of this despair. You must go for career guidance tests and also an aptitude test. These will determine what you are made for and tailor your skills set to the most desirable career. The career guidance counselor will then help with several professional options and match your favorite subjects that suit a particular course to be pursued. You are so young that mistakes can be easily and quickly rectified. Why trouble yourself and get into a depression when these matters can be sorted out in style. Cheer up and take your world by storm. There is so much waiting for you to do. In the meantime do regular exercise, eat well and get adequate sleep every day. Do not withdraw, and meet people in activity oriented settings so that mixing with them will be a whole lot comfortable. But do go through a little discomfort in the beginning, and in time it will ease up considerably. Keep me posted about your progress.

I want to ask about weed. On internet I have seen many health benefits of weed and even doctors also prescript weed as smoke. Is weed better than tobacco?

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Weed is addictive and is as bad as nicotine. Weed addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

Hello, I am 27 years old. Sometimes I feel very nervous. How to overcome this situation? Please tell me.
Dear Utpal. Nervousness is anxiety. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, You have anxiety which is causing lack of concentration as well it seems your mind is preoccupied with a lot of thought and ongoing stress and masturbation is a way of finding relief or escaping from it. You need to consult a psychologist and seek psychotherapy and counseling. Its the only method which is going to benefit you in short and long run. For now, practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. You can consult with me too for therapy. All the best.

Hi There, Dementia is a progressively deteriorating condition where there are memory problems along with the language, gait and also behavioral problems (sometimes psychosis as well.). All that we can do at this juncture, is stop the dementia from further worsening with the help of drugs and also control the behavior with the tablets. Surgery should be the last resort, though it is not usually recommended.
