Quit Smoking

Will power is the key to quit smoking.
Chewing an elaichi (cardamom) or laung (clove) when you are craving always helps.
Also there are many nicotine replacement methods in the market (not only chewing gum). All these should be used under supervision of the doctor.

It is true. You need to rest well with the current job. You choose a job with a work/life balance. You discuss with your hr about this. It is natural to get tired. Your efficiency also goes down.

It is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that 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. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You 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 you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you 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. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your 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 your wife and the children and whoever else?s support you can get and act on it fast.

I am not able to control my smoking. have tried many medicines bt couldnt get rid of it. What should I do now?

Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

Stress and depression can be relieved to some extent with relaxation exercises like yoga, meditation, deep breathing exercises, counselling, psychotherapy sessions etc. However for cases where symptoms have been severe, long standing or relapsing every now and then, medications may be required under the supervision of a psychiatrist. This is to control symptoms from growing in severity and for preventing relapses. Take care.

Pistanthrophobia is the fear of trusting people due to bad experiences with prior lovers. It?s such a natural response to being hurt, but if you want to be in a happy, healthy relationship again, then you need to overcome it. The four suggestions below helped me. I hope they can also help you get past things which are holding you back from a brighter future. Don?t assume that the future will be the same as the past.Learn from your past: what were the warning signs that your ex was untrustworthy? - Socializing: Interacting with other people often helps relieve the feelings of isolation associated with depression. Exercise: Physical exercise causes the release of endorphins which reduce pain and lead to feelings of euphoria. If you are over 50, have not exercised recently, or have a medical condition consult a physician before exercising. Meditation: There are many different types of meditation. Most people will benefit from deditation, especially if they find the type best suited to their individual needs and personality. Setting Goals: Try to keep goals achievable and in daily terms. Expecting too much of yourself is stressful. Achieving small goals can boost feelings of accomplishment and self-worth. Stress Reduction: Feeling under stress for extended periods of time can lead to depression. Exercise and Meditation both help reduce stress. Progressive muscle relaxation, self-hypnosis, guided imagery,biofeedback, acupuncture and massages can also help reduce feelings of stress. Supplements:There are many natural supplements which may help with depression. Fish oil and B-Vitamins may also help reduce feelings of depression. Tryptophan: For many people this amino acid, available as a supplement,works well to reduce depression. It also occurs in the following foods listed from highest to lowest concentration; flax seed, cowpeas, pork salami, lentils, turkey, peanuts,chicken, almonds, egg yolk and walnuts.

" until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarretes, with sex; but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of pain that is holding you in your past, the memories and make peace with them"

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Are you suggesting that you have a problem of addiction to both alcohol and smoking? This combination will definitely effect your sex life. The combination of alcohol and smoking is deadly for your health. I am so glad that you are seeking to get rid of these habits and that will play a major role in your recovery. You must stop them both, abruptly and immediately. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of these habits. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the smoking and drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course 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 your primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after whichever treatment approach you choose, you must attend AA meetings, and your family must also attend some Al-anon meetings to help them deal with their own issues regarding your alcoholism and to support you too in the recovery process. I congratulate you on this fabulous decision that will benefit you firstly, and your entire family. You are taking action that will have major bearing to many lives.

Hi I have recently got married. i feel really depressed. Miss my home alot. I also had fights with my husband and the fights in which there was physical violence also. I also fought back and gave him back. He is very impulsive. Now evrything is alright. But still feel very depressed. What can I do.

When you are newly married, you will miss home and your family, initially. It did not help that during that time you have had fights with each other. I don? t know if you are staying with his parents too. That would make it even more difficult. If these fights had not become violent, I would have thought the better for it. The reason is that in the first two years of your marriage, there will be a lot of adjustment problems. This period is very critical and will determine the rest of your life with each other. The patterns of behavior get established and it may be for better or worse. So pay close attention to what is happening and if you need help please go to a marriage counselor and iron out the differences. One of the determinants will be as to who wears the pants in the house i. E. Who is the boss. That is sometimes unfortunately settled even physically. There cannot be two masters in the house. However, I am not suggesting that only one person holds the reigns. I always recommend, instead of equality, that the relationship should be complimentary. The domestic scene is normally the domain of the wife and the husband compliments her in that role. In the fixing, hard manual work, and some shopping etc, it is the area of the husband and the wife plays a complimentary role to support and be there for him. This is the ideal way. These two years please work to refine these roles. If he is impulsive, then have him seek help from a counselor and deal with that. Violence is never recommended. Sigmund freud once said? that violence begets more violence: it is like fighting fire with fire? it never works. I advise you in particular not to resort to violence, because he could do you a lot of damage, if he is stronger. I am hoping that your depression is your feeling of guilt for whatever you have done. If so, it is a sign that you are indeed a good person and do not like this behavior. Just don't do it. Instead have a lot of talks with him and bring better understanding between you two. Your family will always be there and marital relationships are very fragile today. Work towards building this up and you will never feel homesick.

How is the dual-personality disorder happens?
Dissociative identity disorder (did), previously known as multiple personality disorder (mpd), is a mental disorder on the dissociative spectrum characterized by at least two distinct and relatively enduring identities or dissociated personality states that alternately control a person's behavior, and is accompanied by memory impairment for important information not explained by ordinary forgetfulness. These symptoms are not accounted for by substance abuse, seizures, other medical conditions, nor by imaginative play in children. Diagnosis is often difficult as there is considerable comorbidity with other mental disorders. Malingering should be considered if there is possible financial or forensic gain, as well as factitious disorder if help-seeking behavior is prominent.

Hi, females usually have plenty of mood swings due to hormonal imbalances, especiallly during this age. Apart from this, if there are some stressors like family issues, love issues, or stress at the office, which you are finding difficult to handle, you need to share them with either your friends or family and try to sort out the things with them. Make sure your work is not affected. In case your problem is slowly affecting your work, then probably you need some professional help.

Eggs are one good choice to nurture while you are in the dieting plan. They don’t show any side effects to your heart where as cut your fat. Serving eggs in your breakfast won’t make you feel a snack for long hours, it fills the tummy full which eventually calls for less intake in the next snack.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You become emotional after speaking rudely to any person whether he is right or wrong. In my opinion there is nothing to worry. You are actual ideal human being with lot of sympathy and empathy. I suggest you to go ahead and be like this. You are bound to change in future, but keep your present trait intact. It will help you in future. Take care.
