I am smoking since 1 year and I want to quit this please help me every time I tried to quit but I can't please tell me how to quit this.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Hello. Its a good good decision from your side to quit smoking. You take sauna bath for 5 days. This will tend to take out nicotine from your body to the surface through perspiration and the craving for smoking will be reduced. Please again consult me after 5 days.

My sister has been under medication for the last 15 years and changing the doctors for every three to five years. But there is no improvement. All of a sudden become furious and talks illogically not having connection and scolds either her husband or mother or someone she hates for that moment with all abusive language and continues the said attitude for day or two and thereafter she behaves as if nothing is happend. Whether it can be cured or not

Is someone monitoring her medication? If she is not taking her dosage as it is meant to be, she will have these relapses. You don?t mention a diagnosis so it is difficult to answer your question about cure. It is also ill-advised to change doctors so often. It is alright to go for alternative consultation and only if the opinion differs drastically with reasons to back that difference, will you need to change doctors. My biggest concern is whether she has been availing therapy alongside the medication. I suspect that that is not the case. In which case, I am not surprised by these developments. Kindly get her to a professional for intense therapy. In case this behavior should continue and it becomes unbearable, she may have to get some ECTs done. I am sure the psychiatrists will consider this as a last option. Please keep the doctor notified of these developments as and when it happens.

My son aged 24 years under post graduate, not interested in studies, did not want to do job. Our financial condition is not so good. What will I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must make him do an aptitude test through a career guidance counselor and see if he has other talents which can be developed or explored. Do not just leave him in this condition. He could become dysfunctional and be a burden to you and society. Passivity is criminal and something, even if it is wrong, must be done soon. Do not give him an option of being idle. He must work and earn his own keep. You will be responsible for letting him live like this and after sometime, when he becomes used to this lifestyle, it will become near impossible to change him. You may also take him to a counselor and see if there is any other matter wrong with him and get him treated for the same.

Hi there, Ask for help and support If even the thought of tackling your depression seems overwhelming, don’t panic. Feeling helpless and hopeless is a symptom of depression—not the reality of your situation. It does not mean that you’re weak or you can’t change! The key to depression recovery is to start small and ask for help. The simple act of talking to someone face to face about how you feel can be an enormous help. The person you talk to doesn’t have to be able to fix you; he or she just needs to be a good listener. Having a strong support system will speed your recovery. Isolation fuels depression, so reach out to others, even if you feel like being alone or don’t want to feel like a burden to others. The truth is that most people will be happy that you chose to confide in them; they’ll be flattered that you trust them enough to open up. So, let your family and friends know what you’re going through and how they can support you. Make healthy lifestyle changes Lifestyle changes are not always easy to make, but they can have a big impact on depression. Lifestyle changes that can be very effective include: Cultivating supportive relationships Getting regular exercise and sleep Eating healthfully to naturally boost mood Managing stress Practicing relaxation techniques Challenging negative thought patterns Build emotional skills Many people lack the skills needed to manage stress and balance emotions. Building emotional skills can give you the ability to cope and bounce back from adversity, trauma, and loss. In other words, learning how to recognize and express your emotions can make you more resilient. Seek professional help If support from family and friends, positive lifestyle changes, and emotional skills building aren’t enough, seek help from a mental health professional. There are many effective treatments for depression, including therapy, medication, and alternative treatments. Learning about your options will help you decide what measures are most likely to work best for your particular situation and needs. Sincerely,

I'm having habit of smoking since 5 year's, I want to get rid of smoking habit, give me the best solutions.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, 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.

Dealing With Someone Suffering From Depression

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Dealing With Someone Suffering From Depression

Most mental and emotional health issues are inconspicuous in nature and, therefore, cause more harm than they otherwise should, most people still 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. There is often a delay in opting for the treatment because of the social taboo associated with depression.

Depression makes a person miserable, disappointed, restless or numb for long and tedious timeframes, and is debilitating, particularly when they can't demonstrate their feelings and worries to anybody. It can meddle with their productivity and can become a concern not only in workplaces, but also in social circles.

So here's how to deal with a friend or family member in a depressed state of mind:

  1. Be considerate: Do understand that depression doesn't mean" trouble". Melancholy is a condition with an assortment of side effects like exhaustion, confused mind state and rest issues. These are all side effects of melancholy. Crabbiness is an exceptionally basic side effect, which once in a while is encountered by many individuals, and can lead to an expanded sensitivity. Normally, it's difficult to be sympathetic with someone who is behaving grumpily. But you need to make a conscious effort to still see the positive in depressed individuals and lead them to hope.
  2. Encourage and support: Try not to shame people for being negative. Dejection changes the world into a scene of pessimism. Discouraged individuals don't just focus on the negatives, but they also disregard the positives.
  3. Do validate: Approval can help manage a depressed state, and can wean a friend or family member out of depression. Remember that someone with dejection is not living in the same universe as you. The laws that oversee your universe don't exist in theirs.Depressed individuals require your understanding, your empathy, and your affection, considerably more when they are having a troublesome day, week or month. It is hard, but possible. Discouraged individuals value a positive backing in particular.
  4. Never say 'you're too much': When someone with depression is told "you're too much" particularly by somebody near them, it can send them spiralling into blame and nervousness and bitterness. Being encouraging and empowering is likewise useful.

Hello, negative thinking occurs some times because you have issues or emotions to get out so never hides your feeling inside. And just clear your issues. And some times negative thinking happens because you are not happy inside. So you need to do some things dat makes you happy like whatever you like. And you need to be do some yoga, and most important is meditation keep calm and throw your all negative wives in a dustbin and full your self with positive thinking. And never get depressed every thing will be good in life. Troubles came only for short period and be happy in all situations. And negative thinking makea you selfish. So be positive.

Hi Librate user you have already completed more than half of your course, only few semester is left. Just forget every thing believe in yourself, concentrate on your studies. Study well and try to understand the subject. Most of students feel tense at this time. When you feel tense breath slowly and say something positive and encouraging to yourself. Read carefully the question and make sure that you get a firm grasp of the questions, pick out the questions that relate well to your revision, don't rush anything just do your best. Don't think about result. Pl don't take any medication yourself. All The Best.

Can a person have multiple personality disorder like paranoia personality disorder and dependent personality disorder at the same time,

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Karaikal
Can a person have multiple personality disorder like paranoia personality disorder and dependent personality disorder...
Yes that can occur sometimes. Simultaneous presence of multiple Personality disorders (PDs) is a valid diagnosis, as per International Classification of Diseases and DSM manuals of psychiatric disorders registry. Such a person should be treated appropriately with psychotherapy and drugs as necessary. Usually such occasional multiple PDs occur from same cluster of PDs, eg. Dependent and anxious PDs from cluster C, narcissistic and borderline PDs from cluster B may co-exist. Comorbid Intercluster PDs eg. Paranoid PD (cluster A) with Depressive PD (cluster C) can also be seen in a same person. By the by PDs are the most common disease /disorder in humans, with about 1 in 3 (33%) expected to have 1 or more PDs causing distress to himself or his family members/loved ones, and liable to affect interpersonal relationships and net functional performance.

I'm 24 years young guy, now a days I'm getting more angry for a simple matter also. I'm fed up with this character. How can I control my anger. Tel some healthy tips.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi, Here are few anger management tips that can be useful for you. 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. 6. Stick with'I' statements To avoid criticizing or placing blame — which might only increase tension — use" I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. For example, say" I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes, instead of" You never do any housework. 7. Don't hold a grudge Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation. It's unrealistic to expect everyone to behave exactly as you want at all times. 8. Use humor to release tension Lightening up can help diffuse tension. Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though — it can hurt feelings and make things worse. 9. Practice relaxation skills When your temper flares, put relaxation skills to work. Practice deep-breathing exercises, imagine a relaxing scene, or repeat a calming word or phrase, such as" Take it easy. You might also listen to music, write in a journal or do a few yoga poses — whatever it takes to encourage relaxation. All the very best.

When I speak in front of audience I stammer, but when I personally converse with people I speak fluently. Is it due to fear of audience that exists inside me? I even read the newspaper loudly everyday. Will that help me solve my problem?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Reading the newspaper loudly does help with the stammering but not with regard public speaking and its fears. This is the number one fear of all people. Even the most successful speakers admit to this problem. In fact the first 90 seconds are most frightening. The heart beat races to doubles the normal: 144 times a minute. So you are advised to prepare a good opening sentence to launch you off to a good start. The fear is generally centered around rejection: am I good enough? Will people like me? Will people know more than me? Etc. A host of self-conscious comparisons that only make you feel inferior. When the whole world is in the same boat, take heart and learn some basic techniques to overcome this stage fright. Join a Toastmasters club in your town and develop your public speaking skills and experience. Also remember some little rules: look for some pleasant face in the audience, look over the audience, prepare yourself well, talk simply, understand that you can only talk on what you know not on some grand made-up design of yours, there are always others who are better than you, pray before you speak, and so on. Focus on the three areas of public speaking according to their importance: Presentation and appearance (20%), audience (30%), and content (50%). You probably have fear from childhood that has not been resolved and is tending to find an outlet in your mouth to make it stammer. You could meet with a counselor to settle this matter. There are a lot more points but space constraints do not permit me to be more elaborate.
