I have been smoking for a year and 5 months. I feel less concentrated compared to before. I want to quit smoking but I couldn't. Please tell me any effective way to quit smoking.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
You started smoking recently and decided to quit, that is commendable. Congratulations. Set a date when you will absolutely stop smoking. Start gradually decreasing the number of cigarettes per day. Donot buy packs of cigarettes. Buy only one cigarette at a time and walk ten minutes to a shop before you buy the next one. You can consult a psychiatrist for medications to reduce craving. Good luck!

Dear lybrate user...Lack of concentration and making careless mistakes, being restless and anxious about everything, being on the edge always shows that you have a lot of anxiety. If this anxiety is pervasive and is interfering with your social and functional domains of life it is more of an anxiety disorder. I need to know more about your symptom duration for suggesting a better management plan. Take care

My wife feel very depressed , fear ,anxiety no any reason . .suddenly goes to senseless.

My wife feel very depressed , fear ,anxiety no any reason . .suddenly goes to senseless.
I am presenting the solution in the first person so you can apply the recommendations to your wife as advised. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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.

From last 2-3 years, i'm severely facing problem of memory loss/low concentration. I can't keep things memorized/remembered. In childhood I used to be very sharp minded and could remember almost everything. Due to that I feel very low in confidence. Both these things are affecting my performance in my profession also. I try hard to keep it memorized but lose concentration very easily and can't understand complex things note days. Please help.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Hi. I worry too much I get too much of thoughts and thinking.

Life is enjoyable if one has positive attitude. It is also very important to have realistic expectations from life, from self and from others. No one can have" ideal" life style. If you have realistic expectations, there is lesser chance for disappointments. Please learn to focus on the plus points or the strengths, in every aspect of your life. For example, you need to understand that you are lucky, you have a job and you also have a wife. About the job you are not satisfied because your salary is less. Try to analyse why it is so, try to negotiate your salary with your seniors or learn some extra skills so that you can demand more salary. See if you can start some part time business, agency etc, which will give you extra income. About the expenses, decide your priorities then plan your finances properly. About your wife, try to have open communication with her. Understand that her ideas, needs, values and expectations are going to be different from yours. Please convey your ideas, needs and expectations to her. You both need to talk to each other about your feelings and also need to" listen" to each other. This will help in improving your relations with your wife. I can imagine, your work stress might be making you tired and dull. Try to go for some exercise or yoga/pranayam. It will give a healthy outlet to your stress. Once your stress is released you will be able to think rationally and not feel sad about every life situation. Life is a challenge for almost every other person. We need to make a choice - either look at brighter side of life and enjoy life along with its challenges or keep complaining about the things that are not available to us and waste your prime youth. If you can change your perception about life, it will be easier to live. All the best.

A panic attack is a sudden episode of intense fear that triggers severe physical reactions when there is no real danger or apparent cause. Panic attacks can be very frightening. When panic attacks occur, you might think you're losing control, having a heart attack or even dying. Many people have just one or two panic attacks in their lifetimes, and the problem goes away, perhaps when a stressful situation ends. But if you've had recurrent, unexpected panic attacks and spent long periods in constant fear of another attack, you may have a condition called panic disorder. Panic attack can come in agoraphobia, when there is fear of places where there is no exit, in crowds, locked places, travelling far from home….etc. Although panic attacks themselves aren't life-threatening, they can be frightening and significantly affect your quality of life. But treatment can be very effective. Consult a Psychiatrist and get remedy. All the best for you.

With the mentioned complaints you appear to have generalized anxiety disorder (GAD. The mentioned symptoms are very common in it and all other medical investigations will be normal if you have GAD. Antianxiolytes will help in the due course that's what been prescribed to you. You need to follow a psychiatrist advice in continuing the tablets. You can learn breathing and progressive relaxation exercises from a clinical psychologist if you consult them.

MBBS

Spend your time in nice activities like nice books and articles , and avoid cheap and flickering pleasure of smoking weed which can damage your life. Smoking weed is an intoxicant which is bad for body, mind and well-being. One should be ready to realize the bad effects, then one can avoid smoking weeds by engaging mind and body in more constructive activities Please remember that Smoking weed is toxic to your body , mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit , the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of smoking can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in smoking. In place of smoking, spend your time by doing yoga.
