Dear , the best method to quit smoking habit is to stop it outright with immediate effect and pledge never to use it again. All others methods are almost useless. You can reduce the quantity and use nicotine lozenges or chewing gums to manage nicotine craving. But still the first method is much more beneficial. Please post a private question to me with more details. I will help you. Take care.

What Are Signs of Depression

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
What Are Signs of Depression

Depression refers to a state of mind when you are feeling low due to persistent sadness and loss of interest. Depression is a very common emotion you might have experienced at least once during your lifetime. But if depression is chronic and long lasting for you, then it indicates that you are suffering from clinical depression.

Most mental and emotional health issues are inconspicuous in nature and, therefore, cause more harm than they otherwise should. Most people live with a number of symptoms of depression without even realizing it or do little to address it. When the depressive symptoms last for more than 2 weeks and affect the individual's personal, social or occupational life, it is known as clinical depression or major depression.

Here are certain signs to watch out for to determine whether a person is struggling with depression:

  1. A significant change in sleeping patterns: If you've been experiencing insomnia lately or have got a habit of oversleeping, then these might be symptoms of depression.
  2. Cultivation of a pessimistic approach about everything in life: You feel a sense of hopelessness and that your situation in life will always be the same without any improvement is a sure shot sign that you are suffering from depression
  3. Anger or irritated mood: Having a low level of tolerance, getting angry quickly or always being in an irritated mood can be a prominent sign of depression
  4. Sudden variation in weight or appetite: If you suddenly find that you have lost or gained a significant amount of weight without any substantial reason, then chances are high that it is happening because of your depression
  5. Feeling of guilt without any particular reason: If you have started feeling guilty or constantly blame yourself for everything you've done in the past then the reason behind this may be your state of depression.

Depression is as curable as any other illness. Both medical management and psychotherapy are helpful in treatment. Type of treatment depends on patient's condition, the severity of illness as well as availability.

I am a chain smoker now days I having respiration problem please contact me as soon as you.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Quit smoking at once. You have certainly made a good decision and you can go about it in the following manner. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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 in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke 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 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 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 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time. Go for a medical check up to determine what this respiration problem is all about, soon.

My father is 58 years old suffering from depression, for past 6-7 years & he is depressed due to my sister marriage. After treatment and medicines he become fit and fine. Later 1-2 year ago he becomes more active, aggressive and energetic than before, this behaviour remains for 1+ years. From last 5-6 months he again slowly gets into depression and becomes less active, does not talk much, keep tensed. Doctor prescribed half tablet of gatomir 15 (mirtazapine) at night and 1 tablet of zotral 50 (sertraline) at morning for 15 days. However 7+ days are past but he is not eating properly and we does not see much improvement. Can you please explain is it normal while taking anti depression medicines, and is this medicine is ok? Can we wait for some more time for improvement or we contact our doctor to change medicines?

Hi lybrate-user, He is not suffering from Depression any more its taken form of Mania. A manic episode is characterized by period of at least 1 week where an elevated, expansive or unusually irritable mood, as well as notably persistent goal-directed activity is present. The mood disturbance associated with manic symptoms should be observable by others (e. G. Friends or relatives of the individual) and must be uncharacteristic of the individual’s usual state/behavior. These feelings must be sufficiently severe to cause difficulty or impairment in occupational, social, educational or other important functioning. Symptoms also cannot be the result of substance use or abuse (e. G. Alcohol, drugs, medications) or caused by a general medical condition. Three or more of the following symptoms must be present: Inflated self-esteem or grandiosity Decreased need for sleep (e. G. One feels rested after only 3 hours of sleep) More talkative than usual or pressure to keep talking Flight of ideas or subjective experience that thoughts are racing Attention is easily drawn to unimportant or irrelevant items Increase in goal-directed activity (either socially, at work or school, or sexually) or psychomotor agitation Excessive involvement in pleasurable activities that have a high potential for painful consequences (e. G. Engaging in unrestrained buying sprees, sexual indiscretions, or foolish business investments). Now when the situation alters between episodes of depression and Mania it is called BIPOLAR MOOD DISORDER and it will need a fresh treatment. So I advise you to get the medication changed if it is not helping your father.

I can feel how stressed you are. I think, it is better for you to distract yourself by focussing your mind on your children and learning new skills to earn money in your home itself. A time will come for your husband realise his mistakes. And, in course of time the emotional bond between children and your husband will increase. At least, if you think you have lost your husband, your children have their father. Let s hope for the best" it is not what you have lost but what you have left that counts"

I am 20 years old and my body pains everyday. What shall I do?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I am 20 years old and my body pains everyday. What shall I do?
what is the severity of pain? is the pain continous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Always keep it in mind that, human being always change according to circumstances. Therefore no behavior is permanent. You may consult a psychologist for counseling. Take care.

It will be better if you quit smoking as its just harming your body. If you have difficulty quitting there are many treatments available to help you in the form of both medication and counselling. Continue exercising under supervision and eat a balanced diet rich in all the nutrients. While gymming it will be beneficial to take high protein diet like eggs. Please think seriously about quitting smoking.

I have an break up with my girlfriend so I'm not able to think anything but her please. Help me. Please.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I have an break up with my girlfriend so I'm not able to think anything but her please. Help me. Please.
It looks like you are pining for her after the break up. Have you analyzed why you two had this fallout? If it your fault, then apologize and see if she is amenable. If not you may have done something quite unforgivable. It seems you have discovered that a heterosexual relationship is very different from normal relations. It is very intense, and the very thing that makes it attractive (the opposite sex and all its nuances), can also be its nemesis. You must learn what that difference was about your past relations and this particular one and find out how to live with a love relationship. There must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not just the mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girl friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Since this break up is so serious for you do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and she is not the only girl in life. You will find another but learn not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time choose wisely and behave like a true gentleman.
