Hi. I am smoking from nearly 5 years and I smoke 6 cigarettes a day. Some times I get a cough and a mild chest pain. Is this because of smoking? Do I need to quit smoking? Please advise.

Hi. I am smoking from nearly 5 years and I smoke 6 cigarettes a day. Some times I get a cough and a mild chest pain. ...
You are still young. Only since 5 years you are smoking. These things makes quitting comparatively easy. Later, it is hard and takes more efforts to quit. If you have any withdrawal symptoms like headache, lack of concentration, increased hunger, irritability or lack of memory, you can try with nicotine gum or lozenges or patch. Please motivate yourself continuously with some gifts for next 12 weeks. That will reduce craving for nicotine. All the best. Cough and chest pain needs investigations to rule out harmful effects of smoking. Even if they are normal at present, quitting smoking keeps it normal for many years.

Having frequent headaches and impaired memory problems are sign of burnout and stress. This commonly results in tension type of headaches and cognitive dysfunctions. Learn relaxation responses. Start with practising relaxation exercises like yoga, meditation, breathing exercises etc. For a definite solution and quicker relief you may consult a psychiatrist personally, online if you prefer. You may contact me online for any further queries and treatment.

Dear lybrate-user. Alcohol is poison. You must understand, liver digests the poison in order to safeguard your body organs. In that process, liver gets damaged. Even a single drop of alcohol can damage liver. Quit alcohol. Take care.

Its almost like a loss of a loved one when someone whom you love dumps you. It will take sometime for you to accept and come out of the trauma. All you can do is be optimistic. Be with friends and family, people who understand you and you feel comfortable with. Engage yourself in a productive activity of your liking. Pamper yourself. Go on a vacation. Enjoy with friends and cousins. If you still continue to feel sad and her thoughts continue to ruminate, consult a psychiatrist personally for counseling. Tale care.

How to Cope with Anxiety and Depression Disorder

MD - Psychiatry, Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Sexologist, Mumbai
How to Cope with Anxiety and Depression Disorder

Unlike what you may think, anxiety is a common emotional response in a situation where we are worried about an outcome. It is, in fact, beneficial to us as it keeps us alert and charged for a reaction. Anxiety disorder, however, comes when you lose control over your reaction and let it take control of your life in a way that disables you from living a normal life. 
The first thing to do as a positive step is to accept that you have a disorder. Mental health problems are as big as physical problems. Just like the body needs to be treated to cure a disease, the mind too can be treated to cure you of your problems. The next thing to do is to know what type of disorder you are suffering from to get specific treatment for it.

Connection between anxiety and depression:
Anxiety is not just incessant worrying. It is sometimes an obsessive compulsive disorder that can takeover your life or a terrifying phobia that can prevent you from doing things that are routine for others. Over a period of time, living with such a disorder can take an emotional toll leading to depression.  Chance of developing depression in addition to anxiety is quite high. In fact, almost half of all people with major depression also suffer from severe and persistent anxiety. In many cases people suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety are also victims of depression.

Symptoms of anxiety and depression disorder
Constant fear and worry
Loss of interest in normal life, hobbies and activities
Insomnia and fatigue with inability to relax
Panic attacks
Feeling of sadness and worthlessness

Coping with anxiety and depression disorder
The first and most important thing to know is that both conditions are treatable and patients who get regular care, medication and support from friends and family can come back to living a normal life. Here are some of the treatments available:

1. Medication: Taking proper medication is very important as it acts quickly and is quite safe. Most people do not take medication, such as sleeping pills, fearing they might get addicted to them, which is a myth. Also, medications prescribed by your doctor are safe and specific that is why they have been prescribed.

2. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): It is used to first figure out what the cause behind the anxiety or depression. It is then used to teach people to manage their fears, anxieties, and depressive symptoms and also learn how to take control of their emotions. Another therapy used for treating depression is Emotive Behaviour therapy.

3. Lifestyle modification: In order to overcome, anxiety and depression, certain lifestyle changes are required, such as one should exercise daily at least for 30 minutes and eat a healthy diet.

4. Counselling: Counselling helps the person to overcome the oppressive thoughts and cope up with the feeling of worthlessness.

5. Group therapy: Knowing you are not alone with your pains and fears can often come as a big relief. Not only will the patient benefit from joining a local support group, the care giver will also learn how to cope with the developments of the disorder and how they can continue to provide care and support to their loved ones.

Such dreams happen once or twice. Please do not generalize those dreams and worry. Such worries brings anxiety and obsession. Ignore the thoughts. Engage in heavy exercises for 15 days to help you sleep soundly.

Hello Arjun, Any kind of heart break and/or separation can cause emotional pain and lead to a lowered self esteem too. Time is the best healer in such a case. Give yourself time. You will bounce back to normal in a few months. Additonally keep yourself engaged with whatever work/studies you do. When your heart feels heavy with sadness or anger then find an outlet for your sadness or anger; express these emotions to someone else in whatever way you can, either by talking to someone or by writing, drawing or singing about it. Hope this helps. Ttake care of yourself in this phase and don't run the events of the past in your midn like a reel. Allow your mind and body to heal. Good Luck.

Dear Lybrate User, Body and mind are closely connected. If anything goes wrong with the body then it affects the mind and vice versa. Your present thyroid condition may be affecting your mind and may be responsible for your anger and depression. Please continue with the medicines but along with the medicines, if you talk to a Counsellor, it would help you a lot. It is important for you to understand what is making you angry and sad. Then, with the help of Counselling process, you learn to control/ manage your emotions. Please take an appointment with a Counsellor at the earliest. Take care.
