I have a habit of chewing tobacco. What can I do for this? Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
If it is Hans and gutkha products, they are both very dangerous. I am so glad that your intention is to quit these habits. 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. Both are tobacco products and will therefore have addictive components to them. It may feel like you can’t stop but that it really not true. If you do not try, then it will never happen. You must try and try again until you succeed. The problem with addiction is that you have two products which are both conditioned to various events in your daily life and as such it will make it difficult but not impossible. You could work with an addiction counselor to help you process the rehabilitation. It is important to first find out about the ill-effects of tobacco use to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary and true. The nicotine in tobacco 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 consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Nicotine also reduces the erectile capacity of your penis to hamper satisfying sex. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. You need to 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 tobacco drive reduces, substantially. Both will help but I am inclined to favor the gum because it is an oral habit and it will occupy the mouth just as though you were still chewing tobacco. When you want it will be easier to give up the gum. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-users for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit consuming Hans. 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.

If a Schizophreniform patient who mostly seems normal is kept (in a rehab) with other patients who are at a severe stage, will their behavior affect this patient? As he is right now complaining that we have kept him with mad people and this is making him mad and he will commit suicide if not taken out of that place. Thought the doctors there say its ok, I am very concerned if I am doing right keeping him in there with such patients. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Schizophrenics are very suggestible and vulnerable by the nature of the disease. If exposed to other more disturbed patients he will certainly get more perturbed and may collapse in such circumstances. In some centers the more functional patients are given responsibility and do very well even though there are other more disturbed individuals. But since this boy si already complaining of a problem it must be factored in about keeping him there. Schizophrenics are also known to feign problems because they may not like the institution or may not like being institutionalized. However, my biggest concern is that he is threatening to commit suicide, if not taken out, and that is a life-threatening matter. But then if you give into this blackmail now, he may manipulate you later for other things too. When people threaten like this they are immediately put on suicide supervision to safeguard them. Find out if there are other circumstances that are actually a problem and if those can be rectified, he may be more amenable. Managing a schizophrenic at home is very difficult too. But if he is docile like you say then you may consider taking him out but he must attend some therapy as an outpatient.

Dear, I sincerely opine that your current stress is self created obsession. Sexual fantasies, masturbation, watching porn movies etc are not sin and is good in many ways to deviate our minds from stress. Smoking cigerettes are bad for health. You should stop it. I think you are worried about something else rather than the sexual problems or relationshop problem. You need to be more clear and precise. I will help you to overcome your problems. Be brave. Take care.

Some people find it difficult to see blood and the sight of blood induces some kind of emotional distress in them. In your case after seeing blood you fainted, so in a way, it is your body's defence mechanism that has worked for you to save you from that emotional distress after seeing blood. This is not a very serious matter. But in life, you will have situations where you might have to see blood and act courageously. Hence, to get rid of this sort of blood phobia you can talk to a counsellor who by using different therapies will help you to manage your fear of blood.

Sir, i'm an unmarried 35 years old wOman who jUST lost my father. I.M living with my mother and working part time. I have a schizophrenic brother who stays abroad. We are not able to cope up with the stress. Financially there is no problem but mentally stressed. Mom is taking. 25 mg petril at bedtime. I feel lonely and lost. Get tired easily. Can not sleep properly. I have a boyfriend who is caring but financially weak. I think a lot over very small issues. And sometimes blame myself for my situation. I.M worried about my future. Iv become less social. please advice.

Becoming less social is the main problem. You must realize that your present household situation is not going to change. Mother with an illness, brother with a mental illness these areas are to be constant. Two other areas which you can change is your marriage and your stress level. Once you accept the fact that the present scenario will change when you marry, your stress level will reduce. But this option could take time. Therefore, the alternative is to engage yourself in social circumstances, games, hobbies etc so that the" thinking" time is reduced to minimum. Take care.

Supplements can not substitute healthy lifestyle and eating habits. Even if you work at night, incorporate some kind of exercise, jogging or yoga in your schedule. Generally, stress is when we are not able to do what you wish to do. Your day can ideally be divided into 3 parts of 8 hours each. 8 hours of sleep, 8 hours of work and you would have atleast 4 hours you can spend on things you want to do. Write down all that you want to finish and check your sleeping hours. When you are working at odd hours, you tend to waste some time feeling - you don't have enough time. Plan and you will be able to accomodate some things in your schedule, if not everything.

Dear , you feel, your present physical conditions lead to anxiety. I think it is the other way around. Your anxiety about your health and stress together contributed towards these physical symptoms. We call it psycho-somatic disorders. No problem. Psychotherapy should help you overcome this. Provide me more details. Take care.

You have already undergone bypass surgery and on regular drugs for prevention of further blocks. They are done so that you can live independently. Your cardiologist might have counselled you about vigorous physical activities or restrictions. Children may not be able to do much for your emotional loneliness, even if they live with you. You seem to be computer literate. Get into some group online who have undergone similar surgery and undergoing treatment like you. They will be able to motivate you and even consolel you about headache and chest pain. Consult your cardiologist again with these symptoms, either she/he may prescribe an anxiolytic or antidepressant or refer you to a psychiatrist.

I want to build muscles. What type of diet and exercise I should follow. Meanwhile I feel hard to concentrate on studies and feel sleepy in class lectures.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
1. Protein is the key for the muscle building. Without adequate protein, muscle gain and growth is not possible because weight training demands for amino acids (which comes from protein). You should daily eat about 2.2g of protein per kilogram of your weight. For example, if you are 50kg, then you should eat 50x2.2=111g of protein spread over 5-6 meals in the day. Include high protein foods in your diet. Your protein intake should be from foods rather than from supplements. Good protein foods: beans, soybeans, whey, fish, dairy products (low fat variety), meats, nuts and seeds (almonds, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds), peanut butter. Many of these are easy digestible foods.----------------- milk is one of the best muscle foods. The milk contains two high quality proteins, about 80 percent whey and 20 percent casein. Whey is quickly broken down into amino acids and absorbed into the bloodstream. Whey is very good to consume after workout. Casein is digested more slowly and provides the body with a steady supply of protein for a longer period of time. Cheese is concentrated milk, so it is high in protein and calcium, fat and cholesterol. Include healthy skim yogurt in your diet, which can give you as much as 120 calories.

You should have your dinner as early as possible, even at 8 pm. Ideally, drinks should be consumed before dinner. Curds at night time is not at all harmful. Curds and buttermilk will do no unusual effect to the effects of alcohol. It is in fact good for your acidity.

Hi lybrate-user, Try the following tips. You have to feel confident and content in yourself to be able to overcome the stress. You are young you will soon form many more meaningful relationships. 1. Break free: The tendency to go back and beg your erstwhile partner to take you back will be overwhelming, but remember that it’s just not worth it if you do so. They broke up with you for a reason, so you must protect yourself from further hurt by staying away from them and breaking free completely. 2. Understand yourself: You will go through periods of intense sadness, anger and denial, and these emotions will make you act out of character; but if you are aware of your Emotions and understand them, it’s easier to control them and prevent them from making you do things you will later regret. 3. Stay busy: The panacea for a broken heart is a busy mind and a tired body; so throw yourself into work even though you don’t really feel like working, and focus all your energy into your professional life. The success you achieve will make you feel much better about yourself, and it signifies the beginning of the healing process – it inspires you to concentrate on work and forget the breakup you’ve just been through. 4. Talk to someone: Crying and talking about emotional pain are the most cathartic ways to get rid of the heavy feeling that plagues your insides, so don’t hold back your tears or zip your lips about your breakup. Call a close friend who you are comfortable with, or talk to a professional psychologist to help you get through the feelings of depression and pain. 5. Don’t rush into another relationship: It’s very easy to succumb to the feeling of wanting to be loved and needed and get into another relationship too quickly and for the wrong Reasons when you’ve just broken up with a significant other. However, this could only make you feel worse, especially if you’re not comfortable with one-night stands or short-term flings. So take stock of your emotional state, and know what you want in the aftermath of a breakup. 6. Don’t seek refuge in alcohol or drugs: It’s tempting to want to drink yourself stupid and forget all that is happening around you, but alcohol makes you do idiotic things you’re bound to regret, and also gives you a major hangover which ruins the next day completely. Also, you run the risk of becoming an addict. If you find trouble sleeping, get an hour or so of exercise to tire you out, or seek out the company of friends and family and spend time with them – alcohol causes more problems than it brings solutions. 7. Take each day at a time: Time is the greatest healer, so don’t look too far ahead into the future and worry about what it holds. Instead, take each day as it comes, and find Something to look forward to in the short term – it could be a vacation you’ve planned with friends, a reunion with family, a promotion at work, or just dinner out at your favorite restaurant. Life is made up of these little moments that add to our wellbeing, not just the larger than life ones that cause both immense happiness and unbearable pain. It’s not easy to get over a broken heart, but if you believe that you are strong enough and keep yourself occupied, time does the rest.
