I am 21 now. And I've been smoking since I was 13. But now I've quite smoking. Can I reverse the effects of smoking or decrease them any how? Are physical exercises like yoga or running helpful?

Congratulations on quitting smoking. Yes, you will be ab; le to revert most of the effects of the habit. 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 chew 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. 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.

Dear, seems you have a combination of anxiety and depressive symptoms. Instead of concentrating on what is going wrong now-a-day, try to remember things you achieved in the past. If you start thinking you have not achieved anything right in the past (which is not true) you will project this irrational thought to the future. Occupy yourself in activities you are passionate about. Try to talk to somebody whom you are close to. Medicines can also be of help and it is not good to discard this option just because you feel you will develop side-effects. present-day medicines for psychiatric problems are quite safe. Contact a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist for help. If you stay in Bangalore, you can get my contact details from Lybrate

Please understand that the schizophrenia is not fully curable. But you don't loose heart. Most of the symptoms of schizophrenia are body's natural defense mechanism. Psychotherapy, meditation and exercise combined with medicines should provide you good management opportunity.

Weight gain after quitting smoking does not increase the risk of heart disease

In a study published in Journal of American Association, researchers from Switzerland have shown that in non?diabetics, weight gain after quitting smoking does not take away the cardiovascular benefits of quitting smoking.

There is a net cardiovascular benefit of smoking cessation despite subsequent weight gain. Smoking cessation is always beneficial for smokers.

People gain 6 to 8 pounds of weight after quitting smoking. In the study, quitting smoking was also linked with a decreased risk of heart attack or cardiac death compared to smokers.

Ayurveda is a very good treatment. Better to stop the present medicine. Along with ayurveda better to consult psychologist for overcome the problem of anxiety. It helps very much. Practice relaxation therapy and behaviour therapy. Psychological counselling is no side effects. Better to consult before ayurveda treatment. Take the advice of the psychologist. Then go for any medicinal help. Best of luck.

If you dwell too much in the past you will normally be angry. I suppose when you say you are worried about the past you mean that you are angry with yourself for the blunder. You must express this anger and get over it. That is the best way to overcome this feeling. Since you can do nothing about it, it is imperative that you accept that fact and move on. You must learn to forgive yourself and remember that experience is a teacher, and failures are your experiences. If you do not learn, then the experience has been wasted, and worse still you will be inclined to repeat the failure. Whatever the loss in the deal just let it be and tell whoever else is affected by this blunder and apologize for the same and when that is done I guarantee you will feel better. It is spilt milk that can never be recovered. Do some vigorous exercise to expend the energy of the anger so that it becomes manageable for you.

First of all figure out what drug you want to get rid of. Once you decide you have to see whether it is harmful in the long run. Most of the drugs prescribed are to be under control. If you are addicted to drugs of abuse because you abuse it. You stop it's use. On stopping take a professional doctors opinion. You may be prescribed a detox medication for that. Simultaneously you should undergo a program of drug free living either as an inpatient in a deaddiction centre or follow directions given by the specialist. You have to undergo counseling and stay drug free, may take 3 months to 2 years in something cases. You consult a doctor trained in these and get help.

10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make Your Own Study Notes Taking Notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind Mapping A good Mind Map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation. ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flashcards Using Flashcards is a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: Organising Your Study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a study timetable gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational. ExamTime has a free Study Planner tool which makes organising your study extremely easy. Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text, that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. That is why ExamTime’s tools allow you to add images. ExamTime’s tools are geared towards helping different types of learners as visual learning is often overlooked in classrooms, which are more text or aural based.

Hello, forgetfulness at this age is a sign suggestive of development of age related dementia. Hence it is required that you should get your father evaluated for it and should start with treatment as early as possible as it might slow down the process and would prevent the memory loss.

Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop your habit of drinking alcohol permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from alcohol during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from alcohol you will feel a strong craving to drink just one peg of alcohol whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You cannot satisfy yourself with just only one peg. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of alcohol. Moreover you may feel a slight shivering of your hands after abstaining from alcohol for more than 15 days. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for alcohol.

Dear lybrate-user, you are just 20. You will not face any withdrawal symptoms or health consequences on suddenly leaving smoking. Quitting addictive substances is not an easytask. You can go for deaddiction therapy. But according to me, the best method would be, you quit the habbit now itself. Sustain the quitting with the help of self motivation. I suggest counseling and psychotherapy. Please consult a psychologist. Take care.

Dear, schizophrenia is a chemical imbalance within our body and there are many reasons for such an imbalance. Treatment depends on many things including heredity and present life style. Because of the breadth of the problem, effective treatment always focuses on management of the symptoms rather than cure. The best thing you can do is not to think about cure, but concentrate on management. Once you learn how to manage schizophrenia, cure happens. Talk to your psychiatrist in detail and work with him. Take care.
