How to forget alcohol habit.?

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
The elements of treatment appropriate for patients with severe alcohol problems are fairly straightforward. The core of these efforts involves steps to maximize motivation for abstinence, helping alcoholics to restructure their lives without alcohol, and taking steps to minimize a return, or relapse, to substance-using behaviors. Intervention The goal in this step is to break through feelings of denial and to help the patient recognize the adverse consequences likely to occur if the disorder is not treated. Reaching out to the Family The family can be of great help in the intervention. Detoxification Most people with alcohol dependence have relatively mild symptoms when they stop drinking Mild or Moderate Withdrawal--can be managed by giving medicine for 3 to 5days. Severe Withdrawal --in hospital. Rehabilitation For most patients, rehabilitation includes three major components: (1) continued efforts to increase and maintain high levels of motivation for abstinence, (2) work to help the patient readjust to a lifestyle free of alcohol, and (3) relapse prevention. if any further details are required Let me know.

Your wife suffering frigidity. It is psychological disorder. It is also called as fear of sex. It needs psychotherapy and cognitive behaviour therapy, sex therapy. If the psychologist is lady then it is helpful to you. Generally this type of problems comes to me. I conduct psychological counselling. Marital counselling both you need. This problem will not solved with gynecologist. It needs sex psychologist. Or expert in psychological counselling. Wait for more time. It needs lot of patience. It is not her problem. She is under psychological frigidity. It is curable. It takes some time to come out of the problem. Or better to consult sexologist also he is also helpful for this problem. Maintain good relation with your wife. Do not argue with her. Maintain friendly atmosphere. One day she will cooperate to you. Age is not criteria. It is common nowadays. Share your personal feelings and problems with your wife. Allow her to share her feelings. Be sociable all the time and be happy all the time. Ok all the best.

Hi, I am 26 years old and since past 5 or 6 days I am getting disturbed by some unwanted thoughts. It is related to my sexual orientation.

Hi. You are straight and will be straight forever! Keep thinking this way, because the way you think, you start viewing the world in the same way! Positivity attract positive things around you, similarly negative thoughts will give you negative surroundings. Don't get obsessed with the unwanted thoughts. Let you rule on your mind and not mind rule you. Relax, go for a brisk walk early in the morning daily, take frequent deep breaths. Do some stress-relieving exercises (like Pranayam, Anulom-Vilum). Take homoeopathic medicines - Bacopa Monierri Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night - for 20 days. Revert me back.

Tips to Overcome Sexual Shyness

Tips to Overcome Sexual Shyness

While getting together in bed is something that everyone fantasizes or thinks about, when it comes to the actual act of being with a partner, shyness and inhibitions may stop you from actually having a god experience. While some factors for shyness can be physical, in most cases, they border on emotional and psychological problems.

Factors that might cause sexual shyness:
Some of the factors that cause sexual shyness could be:

  1. A fear arising from lack of experience
  2. A low self esteem
  3. Bad encounters and experiences in the past
  4. Body image issues

These are all factors, which can be changed and controlled with a slight change in your thinking and conditioning yourself in certain ways.

Overcoming sexual shyness with a partner: 
While most people have active fantasies about sex, when it comes to a one on one experience, many people feel out of their comfort zone. Let's look at a few mental and thought conditioning exercises that can help you counter sexual shyness.

  1. Don't have major expectations: One of the biggest issues with mostly men and to some extent women, is that they have elaborate fantasies, which don't come true in the real world and thus aren't prepared to handle real life sexual situation when they come up. Thus you should preferably have a no expectation approach.
  2. Ensure that the surroundings are comfortable: If you are having a hurried encounter or in a situation you aren't comfortable in, it might lead to bad experience, which will keep manifesting every time you have sexual encounters. Thus make sure that your surroundings are comfortable and you are relaxed before the act.
  3. Don't let physical shortcomings scare you: Both men and women tend to be very conscious about their bodies. If you have to be naked in front of someone, you may feel even more self conscious. Stop feeling bad or sorry for yourself because of your body. No human being is perfect and if the other person wants to be with you in bed, they will ignore any physical imperfections that you think you may have.
  4. Think about the act and prepare: Remember that you are with a person and not with a fantasy. Once you are comfortable with a person and usually after a few times, you can then try fantasies and role playing. Initially think about the act before in your head and feel excited in its anticipation.
  5. Enjoy the build up and the foreplay: Sex isn't just the penetrative part, but all the fun section like kissing and foreplay that build up to it. Go slow and enjoy those sections as well and you will automatically be aroused enough to a point where inhibitions will go away.

Good ​Morning, Feelings of laziness, lethargy, lack of energy, motivation and interest in work and things that you usually enjoyed doing in the past are all related to a debilitating condition called major depressive disorder. It can affect anybody and the lifetime incidence for such a disorder is 10-15% meaning to say that about 10-15 people in 100 will have this problem in their lifetime. I highly recommend that you consult a psychiatrist since you also seem to have social anxiety and both these conditions have effective therapy with medications and counseling.

My father is addicted to alcohol, what can I do for him to get rid from alcoholic ness of my father.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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. Now it is difficult to give up all by himself because he has become addicted to alcohol and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that he can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ?cross addictions? i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems, and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with whoever else?s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit his by force. This will however, require the wife and family?s consent.

What Really Causes Personality Disorders?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
What Really Causes Personality Disorders?

What really causes personality disorders?

Personality disorders (pd) are anomalies in behavioral patterns of an individual that are characterized by impairments in personal and interpersonal functioning. These are maladaptive psychological conditions that can be mild or intense and can affect a person's relations with others. These are not triggered by the external factors but are inherent abnormalities of behavior and conduct.

The human psyche is a vast and complex field of study which is so diverse that no two cases of psychological dysfunction are the exact same. Personality disorders are of numerous types, each having a different set of causes and traits.

Broadly speaking, they can be classified into three extensive 'clusters' or categories.

Cluster a includes odd or eccentric disorders like paranoid pd,

Cluster b includes dramatic or erratic disorders such as antisocial pd, and

Cluster c includes fearful and anxious disorders like avoidant pd.

Personality disorders are caused by a wide range of factors which impact each individual in a different manner. The most basic and common causes of pd are as follows:

  •   sexual abuse
  •   physical abuse
  •   emotional abuse
  •   verbal abuse

In most cases, abuse occurs during childhood and the pd takes manifestation in the teenage and adult years. A combination of multiple factors gives rise to complicated disorders which have more acute symptoms. Accidents and trauma can also give rise to personality disorders later in life.

Counseling and psychological therapy are used to tackle the problem and alleviate symptoms. Each case requires a different kind of approach and sometimes intake of medication is also deemed necessary. Diagnosis is always subjective and takes into account various aspects of the patient's life.

'consult'.

Good Morning ~ Fear is not an uncommon feature in anxiety problems and will usually result in inability to maintain normal physiological functions like sleep and daytime daily routine activities. If the problem is occurring for the last one year and has recently worsened, I will certainly be able to help you with medications and you need to book an appointment with the undersigned as soon as possible. I hope you have had a cardiac investigation done to rule out any cardiac issues.

I doctor my story is pretty long. I think I may have anxiety and panic attacks. I would be in a situation where I would be asked questions in a meeting in office and I would forget what I have to say. My symptoms include: -cold hands and feet -tight stomach -dry mouth -clenched jaws -unable to understand what other person is saying and unable to relate to it -shakiness -weak resistance to cold -talking fast and often rushing through things -loss of short term memory -blurry vision -confusion -breathlessness -suspicion -Even after bowel movement I would not feel fresh and would often feel I can still go again but when I go nothing comes out -and when I am not in a stressful situation all these symptoms would diminish it would be there but not as exaggerated.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Seems to be generalized anxiety disorder. General anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Take care.

Yes, you can go for memory tonics. Apart from that, try to meditate for 15 minutes daily in the morning and evening. Also, do not completely avoid music, you can hear it from time to time. Try concentration exercises like: take a book or a magazine and count the number of words in a single paragraph. Count them again to ensure that you have counted correctly. You can start off with one paragraph and as you get used to it, move on to counting words in two paragraphs. Then move on to counting words on the whole page. Make sure that you perform the counting mentally and only with your eyes without pointing your finger at each word. This is one of the simplest brain exercises to improve concentration. Select an inspiring word or just a simple sound and think about it in your mind, repeating it in your mind for 5 minutes. Once your mind has begun to concentrate on it easily, move on to 10 minutes of uninterrupted concentration. When you start feeling drained out just tell yourself 5 more pages and stay with the book.
