Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs 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. 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Please don't use any creams or lotions. It suppress the sebum secretion and block the pores which leads to bacterial contamination and results in more pimples. The other causes of pimples are hormonal imbalance, dandruff, diet rich in oil and non veg, poor hygiene etc. Treating acne in the right way at the earliest will remove pimples without any scarring and gives a long lasting results. But acne patients are more concern about the pimples and try all creams and soaps available in markets which creates much worse their condition. There are very good homoeopathic medicines for pimples which gives rapid and permanent results without any side effects. Along with the medicines there are some specific food which should be avoided for the effectiveness of treatment. You should take plenty of vegetables and fruits. Drink 3-4 litres of water. Homoeopathic cream topi berberis (wilmar schwabe) daily night apply. Internal medicines are better than external application.

I am a software engg by profession, recently i came across a girl in my office newly joined as intern but in a different team. 2 months back somehow i could manage to find her name and fb profile & i sent a friend request to her & she accepted that & asked me whether i know her, i said i saw you in office we work in the same company this is our first interaction. One day early morning in the office i thought i should call her for a tea & intro myself for this i just pinged her on fb to initiate a conversation however she didn't responded & in the evening she un-friend me i found it very rude & immature, if she wanted to do this then she should have not accepted the request. Next day i thought i should apologize to her for sending a friend request & normalize the issue as i don't want that we both feel uncomfortable when we see each other in the office it will very awkward situation so i did apologize to her by saying "i am sorry i din't realize how uncomfortable it would have been for you seeing unknown guy poking you" she replied its ok and went. Then whenever i use to see her i use to say Hi she also responds with Hi this went like for few days, then 2-3 times i could manage to talk to her about herself & career, guided her how she should progress in the company she talked very gently , frankly as if she is ok but whenever i see her i only initiate & she crosses as if she doesn't know me i f i don't say Hi this makes me thing "is she really comfortable talking to me" ? i should better ask her because i don't wanted that someday all of sudden she things that i am stalking & harassing her. I thought of asking her in alone over a snacks/tea for this i sent an email once "Up for Tea" but she didn't respond one day i met her personally i thought i will ask her now but somehow i couldn't get that confidence so i left it but after two days i msgd her on fb and asked can we talk about that she said yes i asked her that "are you comfortable when we talk" firstly she said "lame joke, gud nyt" i again asked her & i wrote one line along with this "that btw black suites you" after that she responded "Ques is dumb n inappropriate.I talk to my colleague about my project n work culture.Wats dere to not be uncomfy.Dont send buttering flith.I conclude_ u r nt a gud person to talk. I said i am sorry if i hurted you it's a compliment if you don't like it i take my words back i wrote sorry so many times but she didn't responded i felt like a beggar & found her very egoistic, i said don't do this i would feel guilty & it would become difficult for me to face you but she didn't respond. I started feeling for her now i don't know how to behave with her ? shall i talk to her in office normally or i should stop talking & ignore her? but if i do this i will hurt myself only because i really feel like talking to her but i don't want things to go worsen in office as it could spoil my career if she complains, Please guide me what i should do now, what should be my next course of action ?

Dear, I don't understand why you are pondering on the otherwise closed issue again and again. You wanted to have friendship with her. Fine. You should have stopped the moment she disagreed. You are confused because you are unable to convince you about the issue. You are doing well. Do it and go forward. Don;t ignore her at the same time don;t try to talk to her too. Occasions will come when you will be compelled to talk to her. Treat her as if she is your neighbor. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Speech therapist uses proven and on sight voice box exercises with the help of modern machines and equipment. Nothing matches their expertise. I request you to consult a speech therapist for once and see what opinion he has. Then we can see how things can be done. Take care.

The pain in the head is a clear indication of this being anger related. It seems that something has bothered you from your childhood. I am saying this without any knowledge of your age. That is why it is important to inform your age so that we can know the problem? s relevance in relation to that. Anyway, I think I am close to right to imagine that this anger may be concerned with some prenatal issue. The stiffening of the body associated with the anger is quite indicative. I suggest that you visit with a counselor along with your parents and ask them to take the history of your development, and information up to your grandparents in relation to any genetic contributions. In the meantime you can do something that is very effective, which is to expend the energy of anger so that you do not get that volatile? do some vigorous exercise every day. Yoga and meditation will also help to calm your mind and train the brain to moderate its responses. You must also express the anger in appropriate ways and give catharsis to the feeling and reduce the toll it takes on your body and mind. If you are a spiritual person you could hand over this anger to god and feel genuinely relieved, if you did it with faith. When you identify who is the cause, learn to forgive them and move on? forgiveness is more important for you than for the other person. This is a very important ingredient of love.

Help your loved ones in quiting smoking through smoking cessation therapy

Tobacco smoke contains a deadly mix of more than 7, 000 chemicals; hundreds are harmful. It is a statistically proven fact that smokers suffer a lot in life.
People who stop smoking greatly reduce their risk for disease and early death. One is never too old to quit.
Smoking is now classified as a disease by many health researchers and sophisticated treatment plans are now available to help people cure the disease of smoking. I have been helping many patients quit smoking through a personalized smoking cessation plan which involves few medications, diet and exercise.

I am 41 years old development professional. I am suffering from unnecessary fear of somewhat happens.
Hi Mr. lybrate-user, you are suffering from fear of unknown? Is it what you are trying to say? The fear of the unknown can sometimes be very difficult to describe because this fear is nothing more than a mental obstacle. More than often, it curbs an individual’s ability to perform to the fullest in various walks of life. Every time an individual encounters an unfamiliar situation, the fear manifests itself, and prevents an individual from taking the right decisions in life. Usually, an individual chooses to run away from the situation, and in the process losses certain opportunities in life. There are times when an individual has to move away from his/her comfort zone to experience better things in life. The fear of the unknown prevents an individual from leaving his/her comfort zone. If you can relate to the above symptoms of fear, you would be glad to know that you can get rid of the fear of the unknown by incorporating some simple changes in your life. The basic step involved in fighting the fear is to educate oneself about the fear and then confront it, rather than avoiding it. Remember, the fear of the unknown can make way into your life through various different sources. While some individuals worry about their new job, new relationship etc, there are others who fear about their body weight, public appearance and so on. Understand your fear First and foremost, you need to understand the cause of the fear. Remember, fear is a natural human instinct. Almost each one of us fears about something or the other. The fear of the unknown stems from certain things, situations or memories in life. Ask yourself, what you fear the most and what kind of situation you frequently avoid in your routine life. Once you are able to figure out the root cause of the fear, you will find it easier to combat it. Learn about the real risk In some cases, the fear of the unknown would be based on certain factors that are beyond our control. In such instances, educating oneself about the fear is the best way to curb the fear of the unknown. For instance, some individuals fear that the world will come to end in the year 2013. Some fear that they might get trapped in a lift with nobody to help them. These fears may appear dramatic and are beyond one’s control. Learning about the real risk can help one a great deal over here. For example, if the liftman assures you that no one has been trapped in the lift for more than 5 minutes, you will be able to eradicate the fear of the unknown to a great degree. The actual chance of the world coming to an end in the year 2013 is less than 1%. Over here, learning about these realities can ease your fear. Power of visualization Other methods that can be used to combat the fear of the unknown involve visualization and meditation. These methods will help you focus on the positives, rather than focusing on your fear. Over here, you will have to find a quiet place, which is immune from all kinds of noise so that you can meditate peacefully. Once you find a quiet place, stay seated and visualize in your mind how you are going to fight your fear step by step. Imagine different ways to combat your fear at least once in a day. Habitual practice of this activity will make you feel better. In this manner, you will already win the battle in your mind, before you set off to take real action. Take baby steps If you are living with a fear that can cause no real harm to you, then your best bet would be to take baby steps towards eradicating the fear. For instance, if you fear of public speaking, address a small gathering that involves your friends and dear ones to embark the first step towards killing the fear. If you fear heights, start using the stairs instead of the lift. These baby steps will go a long way in helping you fight your fear over a period of time. Use humor to fight fear Humor is another great way to get rid of the fear of the unknown. The idea is to ease your mind to ensure that there are no unwanted thoughts that are troubling you. Hang around with your friends and spend some time watching funny movies. You shouldn’t be taking life very seriously over here, so that you are able to kill the fear in a humorous manner. Remember, time once lost cannot be recreated. While being scared of something is a human instinct, you don’t have to spend all day long worrying about the unknown fear. Our mind tends to think about the worst case scenarios, but the worst may not happen at all. CONSULT with me for counseling and psychotherapy.

I love someone who maybe like me. She is of my cast. I had tried many times to convince her but she can't be against her family. Her family members do not support me. They always ignore. Due to this case i am really in big trouble. I don't know what they want. I can't contact her. If I contact her it will create problem for me and also for her. What should I have to do? suggest me please.

This relationship is not going to work: you have no cooperation from the girl nor her family. If the family does not like you, there must be something about you that is not welcome. If the girl loves you she will at least give you some information and help. But she is just not willing to, it seems. Being of the same caste is of not help here. You do not know also whether she loves you when you say, ‘maybe’. You have to respect what this girl is saying that she will not go against the family. So, go looking for another girl with whom there are not so many hassles.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Age and experience makes people wise. Wise people easily starts understanding other people and prefer to be away from people who do not fit their crieteria. In your case too, you are being wise. Don't worry. But you should try to get friends. Meet two ir three new people daily and try to talk to them every week. You may get one or two same wavelength people out of 100 or so such friends. You can make them intimate friends. You must try, for sure. Otherwise just enjoy life without friends, there are many people who do that. Take care.

Dear , when a person becomes addicted to drugs, life becomes a predictable pattern of drug seeking behavior and irresponsibility. Long-term abuse of alprazolam can have a variety of negative consequences for the addicted person. From a psychological perspective, drug abuse causes changes in the circuitry of the brain. Mood swings, compulsive drug-seeking behavior and hostility are potential symptoms of prolonged drug abuse. Because the body has to process more of the drug than it should, damage to the liver and kidneys is also possible. A potentially serious overdose condition is possible as well. Even though a person may become more tolerant of alprazolam, the dosage level required for overdose stays the same. Inpatient treatment for alprazolam abuse and addiction is arguably the most effective remedy. When you stay at a dedicated rehab facility, you? ll receive constant medical attention and supervision. You may be prescribed drugs that reduce the discomfort of withdrawal symptoms. In addition, you will enjoy the benefit of daily activities and therapy sessions all designed to improve your odds of long-term sobriety and satisfaction in life. Find a rehabilitation center.

Hi Vishnu, Since you are a medical student yourself, you are aware of the Sleep and wake cycle of your body. The only way to get your normal cycle back is by starting to sleep at the normal time and try and wake up at the normal time according to your schedule. The most important part in this will be stick to your schedule. It will take atleast a week for your body to get used to this new cycle but it will happen.

Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are in doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depend on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of the material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection.
