How can i make sombody stop smoking and drinking how can i get him out of this habit plz help there should be some medications by which i get rid of this harmful habits

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are some medicines that help with smoking cessation. But with the drinking the medication involves your son?s full knowledge and cooperation. You may consult a psychiatrist regarding this. Now making him stop, is a very difficult and near impossible task. Even if it appears that you have succeeded, I can guarantee it will end up a failure: his willingness is paramount to his recovery. What you can do is to make it difficult for him to smoke and drink; and do not give him the money to indulge in the habits. This will put him under pressure to want to quit. A counselor will also help him realize and help him to want to give it up. There are some rehabilitation centers who will take him by force and treat him through what is known as ?cold turkey: this is a treatment which is done without the use of medications and he is made to suffer the withdrawal symptoms hoping that the discomfort will be so severe that it will act as a deterrent in the future. Of course he is carefully monitored but its success is suspect and claims are rather dubious. However, it is still worth the try. I always suggest that everything possible must be thrown into the ring. If I am not wrong, this suggestion may have pulled some heart strings in you! If so, this is another reason why parents will not succeed easily because you may feel sorry for him and prevent him having what is really required for his recovery. You then become enablers to the disease. So make a firm decision and act in the guise of ?tough love? to do the right thing for him, however, uncomfortable it is for you or him. Focus on the results and not the process.

from bangalore. I am32 yrs house wife. My fist delivery was at 20 yrs old. 2nd baby is at 32 years. After my first delivery I have heard about a news that a mother killed her baby by dipping him in washing machine water. After hearing that news I got choked. It was in my mind for a week. Latter on I had a fear that I will also do the same sin. But actually I don't feel to do the same at any cost. But I have a doubt whether I do it or not? it was disturbing my mind around six months. Latter it gone out of my mind. Now after my second delivery the same thought is disturbing me whether I harm r pain my baby? is it a mental disease? do I need to take any medicine?

Hi, I understand it must cause you much distress that a thought of harming your own child came to you. However, understand that a thought is just a thought and does not translate into action. Just by thinking something you cannot make anything happen. Thoughts come and go, some of them can be weird. It does not necessarily mean that you have a mental disorder. But if you feel you are spending too much time on such thoughts and struggling with them, then consider going to a psychologist. You will be able to learn tools and techniques that will greatly improve your well-being, and you will be able to live a much happier life. From your description it does not seem like you need any medicine though I would definitely recommend psychotherapy. All the best!

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. I don't think there is anything to worry. The only evidence of virginity is he hymn. The hymn in young ladies get ruptured due to variois reasons like cycling, physical activities and outdoor sports. I don't see your boy friend will not be aware of these. Don't be apprehensive. I suggest online counselling. Feel free to contact me. Take care.

Everyone wants to be liked and accepted, but many of us spend too much time and energy worrying about what other people think. You might not even realize you're doing it, but these kinds of mental gymnastics are unhealthy and stressful, making us feel unworthy and removing our attention from the present moment. Here are four steps to help you stop worrying about what other people think, designed to help you maintain healthier and happier relationships with yourself and others. 1. Understand why you care. In order to break the cycle, it's important to understand where the energy is coming from. We've been socialized by a culture that sets norms for our belongingness. From birth, we're taught we should act a certain way, dress a certain way, buy certain products, and adhere to certain ideologies to be liked and accepted. Social media brings the popularity contest to a whole new level, where how many friends we have, and how much they" like" us, is now publicly broadcast and recorded. We are stressed and exhausted trying to manage our real and online personas to make sure that people continue to like and accept us. Many of us have spent our whole lives in this cycle, believing that a certain set of actions would bring us acceptance, only to repeatedly find that this is not the case. This is a form of social conditioning that we must now give ourselves permission to release! 2. Learn this mantra: What Other People Think About Me Is None of My Business! The root of the problem with caring about what people think about you is that you're attaching yourself to an outcome that you have absolutely no control over. That’s right, you have NO CONTROL over what people say, do and think about you! You can have the best intentions, or you can do something ridiculous: It doesn’t matter. You do not control the way people will respond, just as they do not control the way you respond to them. The belief that you have any ownership of or control over people’s opinions about you comes from a place of ego. The reality is that what other people think about you is none of your business! Take a moment and begin to process and accept this perspective. See how the mantra makes you feel, and note the resistance you might feel from your ego. This is normal. (In fact, with all this time spent worrying and managing expectations, this mantra can feel downright strange at first!) 3. Direct the energy to something positive. This new perspective frees up an immense amount of time and energy to live in the NOW and experience your authentic flow. It also breaks the cycle of conditioning that if you could only do X, say Y, and buy Z, people would like and accept you. Deep inside we know that true acceptance comes from within. So instead of caring so much if someone might be talking about you behind your back. Breathe, repeat your mantra, and then direct the excess energy towards something positive, like following your passion and doing what you love! And if you don’t know what you're passionate about, go and find out! Try a creative new activity, such making art, dancing, playing music, building something, or frolicking outside. You'll be amazed at how happy and free you feel when you spend time doing what you love instead of worrying about what other people think! 4. Practice daily self-love and acceptance. When you're living and creating from a place of genuine love and acceptance, you will know that what other people do, say, and think about you really has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them. If you don’t like what they have to say about you, you can walk away knowing you are being true to yourself. A regular, daily practice of self-love and self-acceptance is key for releasing attachment to outcomes and maintaining happy, healthy relationships. For many people, this journey begins with meditation, breath-work, yoga, eating healthy, spending time in nature, and creating art. No matter what you do, make sure to do something that reminds you how much you love yourself every day. As you feel more self-love and self-acceptance, you will attract more of it into your space. This is a life-long mission, not an instant transformation that happens overnight, so please be kind and forgive yourself if you fall back into the cycle of worrying about what other people think. If you find yourself feeling attached to their opinions of you, just remember that they, like you, are walking a long journey of internal healing and growth, and that their attitudes are unique and personal to them. And truly none of your business! Hope this suggestion would help you. Regards,

Dr. I am 22, very depressed due to a sexual problem. One my testicle went up (I don't remember if it's from birth or happened later.) Due to which some of my organs i.e. Private part, testicles and male breasts, didn't grew. It is very small (Probably 2 inches when erected). Initially I used to think that it's a myth. I even tried to discuss the problem with parents but they said that it's just a myth and will resolve with time. Now, when I am full grown adult and know the facts. I have accept the reality. I am not able to sex neither I can produce any sperm. It erects and ejaculates in just 1 minute. My life has become hell. I feel very embraced. I am worried about my future. Sometimes I think of committing suicide because I believe this is an exceptional nightmare. My parents are getting old and I'm the only boy child in the family. They want me to get married in next 2 years. But how can I spoil life of a girl. And there is fear of defamation too. Doctor, I beg you for a solution.

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. They have love-hate relationship with close ones. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

Stress - Good and Bad

LCPS, BAM&S
General Physician, Pune
Stress is sometimes good for you. When you stretch yourself beyond your capacity, your body accepts challenge and increase the capacity to cope up with challenge. To a certain extent, it is good for body. But when the stress crosses the limits, it starts hurting you. That's the bad stress for you. Moderate stress for too long a time also is bad for you. Most of the hormonal diseases like diabetes, thyroid etc. Occur because of long standing underlying moderate stress.

Stress can be physical or mental. Physical stress is due to long and continuous physical activities like walking, jogging, travelling, cycling. Mental stress is mainly because of financial tension or relationship distress. Both types of stress cause similar damages to body. Stress is the main underlying cause behind diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, thyroid, diabetes, kidney disease, peptic ulcer, bleeding disorders, cancer, recurrent infections etc.

Finding out the reason of stress and removal of cause of stress should be the main line of treatment of such diseases.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Paranoid Personality Disorder: Signs, Causes and Treatment

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Pune
Paranoid Personality Disorder: Signs, Causes and Treatment

There are a number of mental disorders and conditions that may affect the psyche of a person, due to various reasons including hormonal changes, environmental factors and even genetic conditions. Paranoid Personality Disorder is one such condition that gives rise to eccentric behavioral patterns. This may make the patient seem odd or even strange to others. Here are the signs, causes and various forms of treatment available for this condition.

Symptoms and Signs

Most of the patients suffering from this disorder are completely convinced that there is nothing wrong with their behavior and everyone around them are conniving against them with ulterior motives of bringing them down. This will make them highly suspicious individuals with intense trust issues. They also become angry and violent very soon and usually do not have a justified reason for such temper tantrums. These patients will also be detached and isolated socially, with hardly any friends and relationships. They will also have trouble seeing their own problems and flaws, which can keep them from having meaningful relationships.

Causes

The cause of this disorder is not known as yet. There is much ongoing research in this field. It is widely believed that this disorder is born due to a combination of biological factors and other environmental factors that may have conditioned the brain in a negative manner. Chemical and hormonal imbalances are known to be at the core of many such disorders. Also, it may be seen in people who come from a family of Schizophrenic patients. Trauma experienced during one's childhood can also lead to the onset of this disorder.

Treatment

One of the most effective forms of treatment for this disorder includes therapy. Talk therapy or CBT which is also known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a form of discussion based therapy that can help the patient in talking about his or her feelings. These are then analysed in a clinical setting with the intervention of a trained psychiatrist or psychologist who will help the patient in pointing out abnormal behavior. This kind of therapy also helps in reaching the root cause of the issue that may have caused this condition in the first place. By doing so, there is a better chance of treating this cause and thus changing the attitude of the patient. This will help in steering the patient towards more normal behavior in the long run. This kind of therapy will have to take place over a long period of time before the results begin to show up in the day to day living and functioning of the patient. Anti-depressants and anti psychotics may also be prescribed.
