Good morning sir, i smoke & drink alcohol from 2 years. Drinking is some times but smoking is daily 3-4 times how to avoid smoke please reply me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The combination of drinking and smoking is very harmful, especially for your liver. It increases your chances of developing cirrhosis of the live. This combination will also harm your libido over a period of time and you will lose your erectile capacity. Of the two smoking is more harmful because the effects are gradual and will not be revealed to you until it becomes too bad. I have given advice earlier to some people and I recommend that you read and follow them meticulously. Sometimes these addictive habits mask an underlying problem which may make you susceptible to become enslaved to the habit. Work with a counselor to identify that and deal with those issues to completely and successfully come off the addictions.

I have been smoking since last few days. After that I have a pain in the chest what could be reasons.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I have been smoking since last few days. After that I have a pain in the chest what could be reasons.
There could be very many reasons. I suggest you meet with a doctor to determine the exact problem and the cause. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. 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 but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. 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 gums and 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.

Hello lybrate-user, take a home pregnancy test. You can buy it from any chemist store, as soon as possible. If it is negative then there is nothing to worry about. Just relax and avoid stress for some days, using contraceptive pills can also cause disturbance in periods. Hope this helps.

I am forgetting everything within 20 min My memory power became very low Wat should I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

I am 20 years older I have an a speech problem (hesitation) so please give me a best advise how can I clear my problem.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
It can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it.

When you start arguing during the bedtime, your mind will be full of thoughts, mostly negative ones. You will get irritated and agitated. A research has shown that fighting with someone at bedtime will preserve the negative emotions until you wake up.

I'M 20 years old. I'M in a relationship from past 1.5 years. Everything was alright. My boyfriend used to smoke cannabis a lot n only hang out with his friends from morning till late nights. But after my constant practices he left everything. N was only with me. My happiness was everything for him. But from a week now he started smoking cannabis. N doesn't gives m any attention. Whenever I tried talking to him it ended up only with Me crying over n over again. He shows as if nothing affects him. He is facing some financial problem due to his betting habit in i-pill. He asked me for some money few days back but I wasn't able to help. And he's facing some problem at home also. Today I had talked to him he said he's bored of me. Then he said he is not bored. He's bored of his own life. I asked around 1000 times then he said he is not happy with me because of my short temper. And also because m not supporting him not giving him money. But he also says he loves me a lot despite of knowing my past because I had told him all about my past. But whatever he says he does only one thing ie ignoring me. And whenever he's out with his friends n that happens everyday now from 1 week. No matter how many Times 100-200 I call him he switches off his phn ignores me shows as if nothing matters to him only his friends are imp to him. So today I didn't talk to him after he said he's not happy. Wot should I do. I'M vry emotional m crying from almost a week now.Please tell sir.

Your friend had addiction and he needs progessional help regarding his behavior. He needs money for his drugs and he will do anything to get the money. He knows that you have strong feelings for him so he will exploit it and try different ways so that you will give him money. Also we all have past. You may have told him about your past. Please do not let him use that information to ruine your future. It doesn't matter what is your past. You can't change it. Let that doesn't stop you from a bright future. You are very young. I would suggest you to focus on your studies and first be financially as well as emotionally independent. I do understand that you have strong feelings for your boyfriend. At this age the hormones and chemicals have huge influence on you. Please do not let that influemce your future. We all have past. We can't do anything about our past. You can't let your past ruine your future. About your boyfriend. He do need help and for anyone to be able to help him first he needs to except that he has a problem and secondly he needs to be willing to take help. Unless he is willing to receive help no one can help him. So please be wise and start thinking about what is right for you. I do hope you are open to understand what I am saying. If you want to talk about how you could bring some major changes feel free to talk to me. Wishing you very best please do take good care of yourself.

Dear Brinda, It is a good decision to taper off clonazepam. If you have started taking it for relief from anxiety, please practice few relaxation techniques. In that way, you can keep your anxiety to an optimum level to function properly.
