How can I quit smoking. I have tried over the time but could not control with myself.

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
All patients should be assessed for (1) smoking status, (2) motivation to quit, and (3) motivators for and barriers to quitting. Smoking status includes current smoker, ex-smoker, or never-smoker; type of tobacco used; and frequency of use. In terms of motivation to quit, smokers can be classified as immotives (no plans to quit), precontemplators (plan to quit but not in the next 6 months), contemplators (plan to quit in the next 6 months), and preparers (plan to quit in the next month). Common motivators to quit are health concerns, effects of smoking on others, and social pressure. Treatments for smoking -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- psychosocial therapy behavior therapy social support pharmacological therapies bupropion (zyban) nicotine replacement therapy second-line pharmacological therapies read this well.

My son is very nervous type. During his first admission to school, he used to become soft prey for bullying. Gradually days passed. Now after doing post graduation, recently he joined a private bank. Now again I find, he becomes nervous whenever his collegues pointing out the negative aspects of sevice like losing job for proper reason my question is how he can get rid of these nervousness. I am scary because he has to take so many challenges in life as he is aiming for higher position too.

Since you are the parent you will know if there is any genetic or family trait prevailing in your clan. If so, he will need to factor that in and know that he is merely projecting that innate trait. Apart from that he may have a nervous disposition due to parental strictness at home, or particularly with him. If he has always been a weak child, he could fear others from the size aspect of this. Also you could take him to a counselor and that person will be able to not only explore the causes but will also be able to help him get out of this problem. They can find out if he is under any kind of chronic stress as well. In the meantime let him go a gym and do some bodybuilding exercises. He will develop a good self-image and body-image if he develops some physical strength. You need to give him a good diet of high fiber foods and a good mix of fruits and vegetables. He has to learn about emotions and how to deal with them, particularly fear. Let him attend a personality development course, join groups, conferences, meetings, workshops, and seminars. He can take a multivitamin and multi-mineral along with calcium, regularly. I hope he has no sleep problem because that could make it more difficult for him. If he loses a job, he may definitely want to do something. So do not panic for him and increase his discomfort. Let him face the world but be there to help him resolve these issues over time and with some therapy.

I have taken holter monitor 24 hours test everything shows normal but my maximum heart rate shows 168 and Dr. said its because of anxiety kindly advise is it ok or need to discuss with doctor more.

I have taken holter monitor 24 hours test everything shows normal but my maximum heart rate shows 168 and Dr. said it...
Respected Sir Being anxious and having a heart rate of 168/min is definitely not ok. But since you mentioned that it is your maximum heart rate, it could be nothing as Holter generally measures maximum, minimum and average heart rates in 24 hrs. So if the doctor felt that your average heart rate is fine and there are no variations, you should be fine. However you could try yoga, relaxation exercises or just regular exercises to reduce your anxiety. Also make sure you sleep well and eat a balanced diet. If you still feel you are anxious, kindly consult with a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and to get treatment recommendations. Thank you and Take care to remain Stress free.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, the best option is stammer therapy. Take care.

I want to study but I don't find any interest in that whenever I try to study. Any suggestions please.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Your depression may be connected to the breakup but bipolar is a more serious condition and has deeper ramifications and treatment. The breakup may have precipitated the predisposition to this disease. You need to go for counseling to deal with the bipolar along with the medication and also the issue regarding the breakup. Actually, you may look at how much you may have contributed towards the breakup because of the condition of bipolar. Your behavior may have provoked the bad relationship to lead to its split. You need to focus on your therapeutic treatment and get well soon by good cooperation with both therapies. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of it now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.

Get an ECG done at the earliest to relieve any doubts about heart disease. If it turns out to be normal, consult a psychiatrist to help you with your anxiety, if it is overwhelming.

Relax, dear lybrate user. I think you are exaggerating small things into greater proportions. Of course, I understand that your father must not have uttered that word even when you are alone. The only thing you can do with this is to forgive him and explain him how you hurt because of him, and also make a humble reqeuest not to do it again. Then, the people in front of whom your father used that word are busy with their life businness and issues. In fact, both your father and other people must have forgotten that incident. Moreover, people are more aware than ever before that human beings are equally susceptible to have psychological problems as they have physical diseases. Hence, the social stigma attached with mental illness is loosing its value, so your worry about all these things are only waste of time and energy. Since you are only 21, you must be an unmarried. Then, where is the necessity to use tadafil for erectile dysfunction. If you tried sex with a woman and failed, there may arise a question of erectile dysfunction. I think it might be your self-medication which is not a healthy trend. One or 2 sessions of counseling will make a difference, I feel, get an appoint with a psychlogical counsellor at the earliest.

Hi, Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Do some relaxing exercises: There are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress, but first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! Exercises: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. Anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like Balasan, Setu Bandha Sarvangasan, Uttanasan, Garudasan, Savasana, Triconasana, Viprita Karani, Marjaryasana, Dhyana, Bhujangasana, Anulom-Vilum, Pranayam, etc. Another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc. (Believe me, you would really enjoy doing this alone as well or may be with your friends, kids).
