It is not a serious problem. We all have the same tendency to behave like your mother in varying degrees. Some people are obsessed to behave to a larger extent. My suggestions are 1. Let her express as fully as possible the bad situstions she likes to talk about, by encouraging her showing interest and asking questions related to the topic, and let her write the same on a paper, but do not forget to draw conclusions from the above processes and to ask what are the benefits of spending some quality time in it instead of spending in some other positive activities. 2. Make her learn and engage in new a skill or hobby that she most enjoys which distract her from such obsessional behaviours.

Not to worry. If you want to cure then you have to quit the habit of smoking. Need to meet to psychiatrist to detoxification & further treatment. You can join deaddiction center also/ join narcotics anonymous meeting nearest your area. Na meetings also help you to solve your problem of smoking. The main thing is your own self control power who helps you to quit the addiction of smoking.

You are going through grief, which is normal after break up from loved. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

My son is a cigarette addicted and I am a 40 years old person from mumbai what precautions should I used to stop him to stop smoking he is been start smoking since he was 16 years old but I just confirm last month when he is 20.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is now very clear that in any addiction, the addict must want to stop the habit himself for any success. All you can do is keep advising him, but also highlight the dangers of tobacco smoke with correct information. And believe me that it is indeed very scary. One thing that hits a lot of youngsters, boys in particular, is that they will lose your erectile capacity and over a period of time even their sexual potency can diminish. And of course everyone has heard about cancer, which is very frightful. You could take him to any police station or cancer hospital to view the condition of cancer-caused disfigurement and it is horrific. These things do help in dissuading people from smoking. In other words, create awareness such that it works as a deterrent to further smoking. You would have done him a great favor. Here are some really useful guidelines where you can assist him by personally being involved. Be very patient with him because he is already addicted and any dissuading approach that upsets him, he will just relapse. His time and friends need to be carefully monitored, especially when it is very difficult for him to manage. This is the advice I give a person who wants to quit himself. So please adapt it to your son's situation. '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.' Whenever he wants to smoke take him out for a treat and be with him until the urge dies out. Give him all kinds of oral substitutes until the drive diminishes.

Hi, what type of anxiety you have. Is it generalised or specific to something. Thought stopping techniques really works for that. Deep breathing also works. Check in which place the anxiety comes, be in that situation for more repeated time. The anxiety reduces. Regards

When you lost your dear one it is common to get anxious. This will remain for some time and will fade after some time. But in the mean time you should also concentrate in your present work. You need to plan short time goals and attain it. I can assist you by providing online counseling for the same.

Sir! I don't feel interest in study. I prepare for civil services examination. I have been facing failure for 5 years consecutively. That's why I have lost my confidence. I don't want to study. Is this symptom of depression?

MD, MBBS
General Physician, Noida
Yes. You have loss of motivation because of repeated failures. You do also have despair. I.e. You have lost hope for success in your subconscious mind. Both lack of motivation & presence of despair have caused loss of interest in studies which further deteriorated your performance on day today basis resulting into a feeling of inability to clear exam even this time eroding your confidence. All these together have resulted into a feeling or state of hopelessness & helplessness which if lasted for longer time results into neurotic or endogenous depression due to permanent changes in receptors of neurotransmitters in brain. Take psychological counseling and psychotherapy for motivation enhancement and removing hopelessness with or without medication.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

I am very depressed for my career. I am not taking interest in meal and any entertainment activity.

MD, MBBS
General Physician, Noida
I am very depressed for my career. I am not taking interest in meal and any entertainment activity.
Why it so? You seem to suffer from depression. Depression are 3 types ; 1. Reactive depression: occurring in response to some loss, failures or poor marks or poor performance in any field like not having any GF or BF while others colleagues have. Hope- Hope not fulfilled---Hopelessness or despair---------------------Not overcome or coped----------------Depression It may be corrected by convincing and counseling, boosting confidence, improving abilities and skills. 2. Neurotic depression: It occurs more in adults due to job related and family problems while the person is in stress and problems, hopes are gone and coping mechanisms and stress management have failed making a state of helplessness. The person is depressed with disturbed routines and poor performance at work-place further exaggerating problems and depression. But he is aware of his illness and the state of all affairs of family and work place, hence, so much worried and anxious as well. Sometimes it may also occur in teenagers. Though it can be treated by psychotherapy and counseling but most often the person requires drug treatment with SSRI's plus Benzodiazepines for short time, say 2-3 months. 3. Psychotic depression: There is a genetic predisposition and a chemical imbalance of neurotransmitters dopamine, nor-epinephrine and serotonin in brain neuro-circuits between brainstem, cortex and limbic system. Patient is depressed with sad mood, thoughts of worthlessness, disturbed and over-looked routines, disturbed sleep, eating and performance. Patient is unaware to his illness and so not much worried but his family members are much worried about him. Treatment with antidepressant drugs with or without anti-psychotics is must. No cunseling or psychotherapy without drugs, works.

You seem to be having high expectations fro your first night and your husbnd. And you are thoroughly disappointed that this is how your sex life will be? well to ally your doubts, it looks like that your husband hasn't got any experience of having sex before (which might mean that he's not slept around. Which could be good news for you and he's saved his chastity for you). This also might mean that he was suffering from performance anxiety and ddnt know hw to please you in bed. When a man is anxious and scared, it's common that he'll perform poorly in bed and if he's not even skilled then it'll be an even worst show ever. On top of that he might be scared of you as well. I'm not sure if the first nights outcome should be used as a yardstick to measure and evaluate his sexual prowess through out his life or could you give him a second chance where you could teach him how to pleasure you. Since you seem to be having some knowledge on this subject. If you see the statistics, you will know that most first nights are failures. I also suggest that you give your marriage a second chance so that your husband is more skilled in this subject. A sex therapist or counsellor can also help him to reduce his anxiety in bed and learn the techniques. For you, I suggest that you don't judge him so harshly and be patient with him. He's not an impotent loser just because he" came" too early. He's much more than a sex machine in bed! and probably you haven't noticed that yet. Marriage is not only about sex. Please see him as a human being who is willing to share his life with you and get old with you. A deeper understanding, trust, mutual respect, open communication are the central to a successful married life. All the best.

Dear , from that negative incident, you could learn many things. Instead, you chose to dwell yourself into negative thoughts. Many people, after such negative incidents, learn to control the whole happenings surrounding their husband and the husband himself. You did not. Their started your problem. You are in a dilemma. You could not control your husband. Along with that you feel helpless and curse yourself for what happened and what is happening. You do not have any mental disease. Your thoughts are a little awkward. We need to correct your attitude and thought process. Rational emotive therapy should work well for you. I can provide you online counseling as well as ret. Please let me know your willingness. Take care.
