I am 20 years old I have a habit of smoking between 1-5 sticks per day what should I do to stop it and is it harmful to smoke 2 cigarettes per day?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. 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. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke!!! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start 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, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may 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. Don?t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, ?giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times?. 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.

Does the person with hallucination problem need counselling? Medicine given once worked and the patient was recovered to great extent, but the problem again came. Shall the same medicine work?

Does the person with hallucination problem need counselling? Medicine given once worked and the patient was recovered...
Hi, please consult the doctor he may want to change medication depending upon current symptoms and severity. If you need to help someone else suffering from hallucinations, it is important to remain calm throughout the entire process. Hallucinations can become sources of severe anxiety, so the patient might already be in a state of panic. Adding more stress and panic to the situation will only worsen things. Calmly explain to the patient that you are unable to see, hear, feel, taste, or touch the sensation he or she is describing. Explain this in a straightforward and non-accusatory manner to avoid upsetting the patient. If the hallucinations are mild to moderate, and if the patient has had past episodes of hallucinations, you may also try to explain that the sensations he or she is experiencing are not real. Patients who experience hallucinations for the first time or those with severe hallucinations may not be able to understand that they are hallucinating, however, and may lash out if they are questioned or doubted. Distract the patient. Depending on the circumstances, it might be helpful to distract the patient by switching topics of conversation or by physically moving to a different location. This is especially true of mild to moderate hallucinations, but you may not be able to reason with patients experiencing severe hallucinations. All the best.

I do stammer nd my voice is not clear like others nd sometimes I found difficulty with some particular words .I hv inferiority. Complex of this prblm but I talk very confidently to everyone .does this prblm has permanent solution? Or I will suffer from this throughout my life.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation. It can be dramatically improved, if it s due to anxiety. All the best.

I am a marijuana smoker. How to leave this? Because when I smoke my heart beat going very fast, and I feel weakness.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Joy, Happy to know that you are trying to leave marijuana smoking. Heart beating fast and weakness are the effects of marijuana. Usually there is no withdrawal symptoms of marijuana.So if you decide you can leave it without any bad effects On the other hand you may feel strong and your heart may not beat fast. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like weed parties, smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will like a passing cloud..

Doctor says I have simple schizophrenia, I need to confirm. I am currently taking levosulpiride, Clox (brand name) and omega 3,6,9 tabs. According to these information, what mental disorder or not I have?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
If you have doubt in your mind regarding your diagnosis, get yourself re-evaluated by a Psychiatrist, who will make the proper diagnosis based on your mental status examination & psychological test like Psycho-diagnostic evaluation. & if you are diagnosed to be suffering from a mental disorder, it will be best for you to accept the fact that you are suffering from the disorder, stay under regular supervision of your attending doctor, & adhere to treatment. Educate yourself adequately regarding the diagnosed illness, its symptoms etc. & if any doubt regarding the illness or its treatment come to your mind, always discuss with your attending doctor &/or family member, & do not take any decision alone. There are treatments available for mental disorders & a person with such disorders can lead a normal life on treatment. Along with, lead an active life, eat healthy diet, sleep adequately & stay away from substances of abuse like alcohol, tobacco etc. & stay positive about life. If it is difficult for you to accept the illness or you are not able to cope with it, then you can go for counseling sessions.

May be there are too many things on your mind, all the time. Try the following to improve your memory: 1. Every day in the morning before you start your day, sit at one place and practice slow, deep breathing for 5 minutes. If you are feeling very anxious, inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth and imagine you are exhaling all the anxiety, in you. 2. Write down all the important jobs to be done. Decide priority and start doing these jobs. After finishing put a tick mark. Keep referring to this list of jobs if you are forgetting all the time. 3. Take interest in all the work that you do. We easily tend to forget those things which are not of our interest. 4. Understand why finishing a particular job is important for you because if you find it worthless, you are more likely to forget it. 5. Play some memory games when you are free. 6. Be aware of your own feelings. If you are under lot of stress, you are likely to forget things easily. Learn to manage your stress. 7. Have enough sleep daily. 8. At night, make list of things to be done on the next day and read this list next day in the morning. All the best.

The symptom forgetfulness is very confusing and tricky. The mind remembers every thing that is interesting. So when you do something (any work) do it with focus and lot of interest. Experiment this and you will be surprised how good is your memory! instead of worrying start practicing and you will gain a lot of confidence.

Thiss is not an age for Memory loss.Actually it is not loss of memory ,but we take things for granted.Just ask yourself,Do you ever forget to take or give money to a person whom you have lent money or from whom you have taken money.Actually we are so much occupied with our daily work that our mind ignore less important things and we ourselves term it as Memory loss.It i just stress due to over load of work and nothing else.We all have pushed ourselves into lot of stress trying to do many thing in one time and here start the problems.We start feeling irritated and due to thiss irritation and frus stration of not giving 100% in work,we start skipping important things from our mind thus making the things even more worse.Certain homoeopathic medicines and an exercise will help you for your problem but I again say that just try to be focused and complete thingss in a most peacefully manner and environment and homoeopathic medicine will help you in this direction.

I Don't have any habits related to smoking or drinking. I don't drink coffee and tea either . I am well built with moderate height of 5.8 . My sexual perspect is good too . My problem - when I get angry, I go berserk. No matter what's in my hand, I use it to throw it away in anger . I never beat women but when I get angry I get so tensed that I beat myself with whatever I have in my hand . My flow of words is also kind of shaggy when I speak during the anger mode . No proper flow of sentence in other words . I get very very arrogant, angry and mad when someone tries to harm my loved ones especially. It's as if someone has occupied my body is how people tell me when I am in anger . Anything that you could help me with in order to stop this problem?

Unless you make up your mind, nothing will work efficiently as expected. You have to choose every time whether you want to get agitated or be patient and behave properly. You have realized that when you get angry you lose your sense of balance and later regret because you make a fool out of your self! its just a matter of time that you can overcome most of your problems provided you have a sincere willingness to change. You can write down your thoughts and reactions in a diary and analyse where you go wrong every time you get angry. Give yourself some time (may be a few months to slow down.) your friends and close relatives can give genuine feedback if you ask them to tell them the truth about your nature. Homeopathy can work wonderfully if a proper case is taken. Till then, work on the few suggestions that I have given.

I have a chest pain last 4 days. I take so mch personal tension. Is the pain reason by tension.
Dear lybrate user, now a days every other person is having high stress levels. The changing life style, nuclear families, pollution, very demanding jobs, dissatisfaction in relationships are the major causes of stress. It is advisable that you share your worries with someone you trust. By doing this you will lighten your burden and also might get a different perspective about the difficulties in your life. At the same time, do not take chest pain lightly. The pain may be because of stress or any other physical ailment. Please get yourself checked. Consult a doctor at the earliest. Take care.
