Hello sir there is no other way to quit smoking I can not go through this kind of meditation coz I dint understand this mantra meditation.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

This shows that you are not doing your homework properly.Your mind is distracted and you are unable to concentrate on studies.Give atleast 2-3 hours to your daily studies for what ever is taught in the class.People who dont have the habit of daily study and think that they can coverup in the last are the laggards and always find it hard to tacle the situation.So start this habit from now itself and try to find pleasure in studying.You will be known in the future on the basis of your qualification,so work hard,

Dont worry Rohit, you will slowly adjust to the new environment. Talk with your college counsellor. Make friends with Chennai boys, learn new culture, once a while take a break and go home for some time with family. As soon as you complete your course, you can travel to other parts of the world. Within India, you feel difficulty adjusting, just imagine people going to other countries and settling down....time is the healer, if severely depressed consult a psychiatrist

My wife is very sort temper. What should I do?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, short temper is due to irritation. Irritable mood is due to many stressful conditions. You should talk to your wife regarding her stress and health conditions. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Take care.

I am 34 years old male diagnosed to have moderate to severe depression from last 3 urs. I was started on antidepressants. Tab escitalopram 10 mg but it's making me so much drowsy so I have stopped it. Now I have decided that I am not going to start any antidepressants. I have read so many medical journals which have stated that exercise is equally effective as that of antidepressants. So my question is can I best chronic depression by doing daily exercise. During last few years I have noticed that when I do exercise I really feel better. If I take antidepressants I can't do anything.

If you did vigorous exercise of more than half an hour per day, your body will produce natural antidepressants on its own. Apart from exercise, you definitely need counseling on a regular basis. You should never experiment with medication nor regulate it on your own. If you are sincerely committed, you can overcome depression. Please follow these instructions too: I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear lybrateuser, -your pain could be due to acidity, do not miss meals, have meals at fixed timings, avoid spicy, fried & junk food, have 7-8 glasses of water for proper digestion -do regular exercise for 20-30 min/day, also include yoga & deep breathing for 5-10 min in the morning -get your stress test done as advised by your physician so that any heart problem is ruled out -the pain may not be due to the massage which you have taken.

How can pranayam or yoga along with ayurvedic medicines can completely "CURE" generalised anxiety disorder.Please tell.
Pranayam is deep breathing. You can not be anxious and do deep breathing at a time. So, deep breathing eliminates anxiety eventually. Best option is to see a qualified and trained psychologist at the earliest. Psychologist is an expert in diagnosis by psychological testing and counselling/psychotherapy i. E. Treatment without medicines. Psychiatrist gives medicines only. Treatment started earlier will control the problem very fast. Get proper diagnosis first followed by right treatment. Please get diagnosis confirmed first then take medicines as advised. It is possible that problem is psychological-then it will not be cured by medicines. You will need psychotherapy.

How should I quit smoking.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine 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 smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I am 23 years old and I am suffering from chest pain. I do not know whether it is for smoking. As I smoke a lot. What should I do to reduce the pain?

I am 23 years old and I am suffering from chest pain. I do not know whether it is for smoking. As I smoke a lot. What...
You need to get yourself examined for tobacco-related problems. You must focus on giving up the smoking more than reducing the pain. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. 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 on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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. 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. 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. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.
