There seems to be a serious problem. It is not nice to disclose this publicly. This will need detailed evaluation and treatment. From the information you are giving, it appears you will need medicines under doctor's supervision. Kindly consult me in person at the earliest. Do not ignore.

Sleeping for 7-8 hours is not a problem. You will have to take care of your diet - eat smaller portions. Have a healthy nutritious diet - avoid junk food and also snacks like biscuits and namkeens. Instead snack on fruits, nuts and roasted grams and snacks. Have lots of water and home made drinks- avoid tea and coffee. Exercise is a must to energize your body and brain- yoga is a good idea - do some pranayam. Divide content into smaller chunks. Set daily targets in terms of portions you want to complete rather than the no. Of hours you want to put in. Test yourself after every topic that you finish. Reward yourself if you are able to achieve daily targets. Make your goal important for yourself and think of a negative consequence (one that you most want to avoid) for self motivation.

Dear lybrate-user, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help counselling means (caring conversation between doctor with patient motivates and helps in healing the person better than medicines)

Hi sir I use to chew gutka for a long time what are the precautions should I take?

If it is Hans and gutkha products, they are both very dangerous. I am so glad that your intention is to quit these habits. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Both are tobacco products and will therefore have addictive components to them. It may feel like you can’t stop but that it really not true. If you do not try, then it will never happen. You must try and try again until you succeed. The problem with addiction is that you have two products which are both conditioned to various events in your daily life and as such it will make it difficult but not impossible. You could work with an addiction counselor to help you process the rehabilitation. It is important to first find out about the ill-effects of tobacco use to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary and true. The nicotine in tobacco stimulates the heart beat 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 consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Nicotine also reduces the erectile capacity of your penis to hamper satisfying sex. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. You need to replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also 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 tobacco drive reduces, substantially. Both will help but I am inclined to favor the gum because it is an oral habit and it will occupy the mouth just as though you were still chewing tobacco. When you want it will be easier to give up the gum. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-users for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit consuming Hans. 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.

Dear Raja. Our brain is capable to store everything and there is nothing which brain can forget. But your stress, anxiety and other obsession problems can reduce brains capacity of recollection. Don't be stressed. Get good sleep and moderate physical exercise. Please consult a psychologist for counseling, advice and psychotherapy. Take care

How to get a rid from anger?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
You don?t have to get rid of anger; you must learn how to express it properly. However, there may be a problem with how angry you get and for small reasons too. Sometimes by suppressing anger over the years you may be carrying an overload of unexpressed anger that will come out in impulses and will the least of provocations. These piled up emotions must be dealt with even now and after you have relieved yourself of past feelings you will be able to handle current ones with a lot of ease. Since you are already displaying so much anger at such speed, it indicates that there was something that had happened in your early childhood, including prenatal life, which is contributing to this situation. Your mom will know what that is all about, and equipped with that information meet with a counselor soon. In fact it will be easier to work on it now than later when the anger behavior will be too entrenched to remove easily. In the meantime go for regular and vigorous exercise daily, preferably the aerobic kind. Also you must introspect whether you are actually scared but choosing to act angry because it is a power feeling compared to being in fear. In that case you need to handle the fear and not the anger and your problems will cease to trouble you. Even so you must then find out about why there is so much fear in your life at this stage. Anyway anger management classes will be still be beneficial for you.

Hi Doc, I have been suffering from an anxiety disorder with intrusive thoughts rendering more anxiety. I do not feel sad or depressed at all, I get random intrusive thoughts in unexpected situations, for example if am in a work meeting in a conference hall, I get a sudden intrusive thought which is" what if I say something abusive / offensive to my superior" and this thought although irrational triggers some anxiety and then there is that fear of having an anxiety attack which is whats more intense. I am PERFECTLY normal when the thought fades off or after we step out of the room. Please help me understand the nature of this problem. I have never acted upon my intrusive thoughts but the intense anxiety is troubling.

It is common problem and this is human psychology as our past experiences reflect on current mental status. Do any meditation process which you know is bonafide and can help you. Drink cow's milk in night as this is proven to improve clarity of thought sequence in mind. Avoid foods which are too spicy,oily, and bitter. Strictly take to vegetarian foods and fruits but avoid non-vegetarian foods which are not natural on human gastrointestinal tract and adversely mind,body and wellbeing

Hi, I can imagine what you might be going through, but there are certain things which we, as normal human beings, need to remember. As human beings, we tend to cope with constant changes, by building new relationships at different stages in our life. However the priority keeps changing continuosly, like for example, a girl before her marriage gives utmost importance to her family. Whereas after marriage, her husband and children become her top priority, and this is the dictum. Similarly for you also the priorities should change and should start building new and healthy relationships with your friends at study or work place and you should make every effort to divert your attention and these feelings of insecurity. Remember that the basic human survival mechanism is based on the ability to adapt to changes, the failure of which will lead to mental unrest. Try to keep yourself as busy as possible and be surrounded by as many friends and other family members as possible. If it seems impossible to overcome this problem, then there is more to this problem and probably it needs to be dealt by a professional, either a psychiatrist or a counsellor.

That situation is normal and almost all people like you will go through such a situation. The best option is accept it and don't force it away. Instead, improve your attitude towards study and career. Slowly you will find time to think about your girl friend and time to study. Take care.

Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers. Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you. Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs 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.

It sounds like you are assuming these things about your BF. If that is right, please talk to him and discuss your suspicions and see how he responds. It will be grossly wrong to accuse him on the basis of suspicions alone. Games need to be confronted head-on and dealt with less tolerance. If you don't do so now, it may become very difficult later on.

You need to change your study habits. Choose right time, place for your study. Switch off all dis-tractors such as mobile, tv, music system etc. Practice writing what you have read and make several repetitions. Take sufficient diet and rest. Yoga and deep breathing is always helpful before you study. Always remember, refreshed mind always learn and recall better. Invest your energy in relaxing your mind before you study.
