* ganja refers to the leaves and stem, and is usually greenish in colour
*bhangaa dark brown or black preparation of marijuana leaves and flowers and other additives such as herbs and spices

* Eating binges
* Peculiar herbal smell in hair, clothes, or in the area where the drug was consumed
* Presence of marijuana seeds, smoking devices (chillums and bongs), smoking paper'roaches' (rolled-up cardboard to create an artificial filter)

Health risks

* it is estimated that one marijuana cigarette is equivalent to five tobacco cigarettes in terms of damage to the body.
* a marijuana abuser risks all the dangers of smoking and many more, including brain damage, infertility, and loss of memory.
* marijuana is a gateway drug, which means that prolonged abuse of marijuana leads to a higher tolerance to the drug, resulting in the abuser trying dangerous drugs such as heroin and cocaine.

Lsd

Lysergic acid diethylamide (lsd) is a popular party drug, which is extremely potent even in small quantities. This odourless, tasteless, and colourless drug can induce strong hallucinations where the user sees different colours and has strange experiences.

Common terms and definitions: acid, stamp, lucy, sunshine, microdots

How is it consumed?

lsd is usually licked or swallowed. It is sold as tablets, capsules, or in its liquid form added to sugar cubes, postage stamps'windowpanes' (gelatine or cellophane), blotters (small pieces of paper).

Visible signs

* High body temperature
* Dilation of pupils
* Increased heart beat and blood pressure
* Sweating
* Loss of appetite

Health risks

* the worst effect of lsd is what is known as a'bad trip' in which users develop extreme forms of paranoia and fear.
*'flashback' or a sudden recurrence of the user's experience can trigger traumatic or strange experiences, even after many hours or months of abstaining from the drug.
* fatal accidents can occur with lsd usage, especially while driving.
* schizophrenia and severe depression may occur with long-term use.

Cocaine

Cocaine is a highly addictive stimulant derived from the leaves of the coca plant. It is usually a white crystalline powder. Crack, a cheaper form of cocaine, is even more addictive and dangerous than cocaine. Even a single dose is enough to trigger addiction. Cocaine abusers typically develop a tolerance to the drug, and take in higher doses to maintain the same high.

Common terms and definitions:

coke, namak (salt in hindi) coca, flake, snow, heaven dust, crack

How is it consumed?

Cocaine is either snorted or dissolved in a liquid and then injected. Some also mix cocaine with cannabis and tobacco and smoke it.

Visible signs

* fast speech or talkativeness
* increased heart rate and blood pressure
* dilated pupils
* panic
* runny or bloody nose
* restlessness, irritability, sleeplessness
* bouts of high energy followed by exhaustion

Health risks

* seizure, cardiac arrest, respiratory problems that can lead to death
* hallucinations
* severe paranoia
* hiv and other diseases resulting from infected needles

Heroin

Heroin is a highly addictive derivative of morphine, an extract from the poppy plant. In its purest form, it is a white powder but can also be brown in colour because of the presence of impurities. However, heroin is never sold in its pure form, and is often mixed with talcum powder, starch, sugar, powdered milk, or quinine. As the drug is adulterated, it is difficult to determine the actual dose of heroin, which can be fatal.

After just few hours or days of the last administration, withdrawal symptoms such as intense craving for the drug, restlessness, pain, sleeplessness, vomiting, and kicking can be seen in the average heroin abuser.

Common terms and definitions:

smack, horse, junk, h, skag

How is it consumed?

A tin foil containing heroin powder is heated underneath. This results in the solid powder turning into a liquid. Users either inhale the fumes or inject the liquid. Heroin is also smoked.

Visible signs

The heroin addict typically rushes to the bathroom in the morning for his morning dose. Heroin abuse also often causes constipation, leading to prolonged use of the bathroom. Here are other visible signs of heroin abuse:
* runny nose, coughing, sneezing, fever, chills
* mental confusion
* staggered gait
* lack of hygiene
* poor appetite
* vomiting
* scratch marks
* pupil dilation
* calmness (when high) and restlessness (when not high)

Health risks

* coma
* death
* hiv and other diseases resulting from infected needles
* collapsed veins
* infections

Other drugs

Identifying a drug abuser is not easy because there are several drugs with different effects and health risks. Some drugs are available for research, medical, and other legal uses, but are often abused. If you spot any suspicious behaviour in your child, do not panic, but consult a qualified medical professional with experience in drug abuse treatment. A few other commonly abused groups of drugs include:

* Opiods: opium and morphine, along with heroin, belong to the group of drugs derived from the poppy plant.
* hallucinogens: in addition to ecstasy, drugs like mescaline and psilocybin are often used to induce altered states of perception. *
* inhalants: paint thinners, petrol, gases (butane, propane, and laughing gas) are easily available but highly dangerous, causing death within seconds. Every year, several teenagers accidentally inhale these substances, with some developing an addiction over time.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Heroin addiction comes under SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND ADDICTION. Deaddiction treatment is best suited for such addictions. Medically assisted drug detoxification or alcohol detoxification alone is ineffective as a treatment for addiction. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) recommends detoxification followed by both medication (where applicable) and behavioral therapy, followed by relapse prevention.

Ayurvedic Way For Alcohol And Nicotine De-Addiction

Ayurvedic Way For Alcohol And Nicotine De-Addiction
What happens when you are addicted to a chemical substance? You lose control of your life. It doesn t matter what you are addicted to alcohol, nicotine or drugs the effects are the same. It is usually not easy to get rid of an alcohol and/or nicotine addiction. Most people find it difficult to give up these substances even after years in de-addiction therapy. Hence, it s prudent to let Ayurveda, the ancient science of healing handhold us in getting rid of addictions.

Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins. These cigarette ingredients include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT. Perhaps this list of ingredients that are found in cigarettes is enough to make you want to quit smoking for good! - Lowell Kleinman, M.D., and Deborah Messina-Kleinman, M.P.H

Addiction - The Ayurvedic View
Ayurveda considers alcohol and nicotine consumed in large quantities as Visha or toxic. According to Ayurveda, alcohol has the following properties-

Light or Laghu
Hot or Ushna
Sharp or Tikshna
Drying or Visada
Rough or Ruksha
Expensive or Vikaasa
Swift or Aasuga
Sour or Amla
Subtle or Sookshma
These properties are all opposite to the qualities that ojas possesses. Ojas has all life-giving properties and alcohol and nicotine have life-negating qualities.

Why do humans get addicted to alcohol and nicotine?
Human brain produces Dopamine normally and what alcohol does is to activate the nervous system to promote dopamine formation. The brain thus remembers the taste of alcohol and nicotine by creating special cells called receptor cells. As a person increases the quantity of alcohol, these cells also increase in numbers. When the person wants to give up his addictions these receptor cells agitate and create withdrawal symptoms with unpleasant and even dangerous symptoms.

De-addiction - Ayurveda Way
De-addiction treatments in Ayurveda comprise the following:

Purification therapies or Panchkarma: These are used for getting rid of all toxins present in the patient s body. These must always be done under the supervision of an ayurvedacharya as they are quite potent. After Panchakarma, the patient is given vomiting therapy or Vamana, followed by purgative therapy or Virechana, Basti or enema therapy and administration of Nasya or nasal drops therapy. All these help in detoxifying the body and mind and prepare the patient for further de-addiction ayurvedic treatments like Rasayana therapies which nourish and strengthen the body after Panchkarma. For treatment of addictions, Rasayana treatments include changes in diet and use of oral herbal medicines both.
Herbal medicines used in de-addiction: A range of herbal medicines and their combinations are used in the treatment of addictive problems in Ayurveda and these are to be consumed orally. Ayurveda prescribes Chamomile and Ashwagandha in combination to heal the lungs. These help in cleansing lungs of smoke- related problems. Doctors also prescribe congestion relieving herbs like ginger and pepper mixed with honey or lemon.
In addition, herbs to improve memory, concentration and to fight depression are also given. These are:

Shankhpushpi
Kanphool or dandelion
Brahmi
Ashwagandha
In addition, herbs to treat sleep disturbances like Jatamansi, Sarpgandha, Brahmi and Jaiphal are also prescribed. Since most addicts have impaired liver function, herbs that improve liver function like Aloe Vera, Punarnava, Long pepper, Kutki, Tulsi are given to revive the liver.

Substance Abuse - How Should You Cope With Someone Going Through It?

Substance Abuse - How Should You Cope With Someone Going Through It?
While we all know substance abuse is a social issue and learning that a loved one is affected by the problem can be nearly heart-breaking. It is definitely not something that can be easily accepted. At the same time, the affected individual needs all your love and attention and more importantly support to get through the situation. It is important to not show anger or frustration at the person but to empathize and help them get out of the situation.

Read on to know some of the ways in which you can play an active role in supporting your loved one under such circumstances. This involves both of you coping with the situation at hand, as well as helping the person come out of the abuse.

Educate yourself: When you are trying to help a person, you should know in detail about the substance that was being used and its ill effects. This gives you greater credibility, unlike the person who got carried with the happy feeling it gave and got into abuse.
Ensure safety: This is both for the affected individual and yourself. With the required substance not being available, the person could look at harming either self or others, especially ones who are trying to get them out of the abuse. Though the intent is to help, they are looked at as people who are depriving the feel-good feeling produced by the substance, which is no longer easily available. Therefore, ensure safety.
Talk openly: In the beginning, be a good listener. Once you get their confidence, make them understand that the entire situation is making you upset and perhaps angry or frustrated too. Get them to focus on your proposal of getting out of the habit together. If they are willing then this can ensure greater success in quitting the habit. Get to understand how exactly the habit developed including the people responsible for it, the circumstances leading to it, and the various chemicals that were used. The duration and frequency are also important. Tell them it is okay and that you will both get out of it with each other s support.
Participate in therapy sessions: Individual counseling will work effectively for the primary client, but it is also important for family members to get involved. The counselor also would need support beyond the few counseling hours for completely getting rid of an individual s habit. Therapy can help you learn how to manage the issues back at home.
Find your me-time : With all that is going on, you will need some time for yourself to just be. Eat well, stick to your workouts, sleep well, keep your friends, and make time for your hobbies. These will ensure you are in good shape to support the affected individual. It is not possible for you to help another person when you are not in great shape yourself.

Hello, majorly what we are looking at is increasing your appetite by eating the correct, and healthy foods. Food would majorly include 1st class proteins, which would also aid in repairing your compromised immunity. These 1st class protein would come from dairy products, and another animal sources. We can also combine cereals and pulses to get a complete protein. We need to make sure that the carbohydrates come from the complex sources, avoiding maida, simple sugars, honey, etc. The fats in the diet should come majorly through the invisible sources, eg. Nuts and oil seeds. Also the oil used to cook can be rice bran oil, groundnut oil, etc. Which are high in good quality fats.

De-addiction - Know How The Process Actually Works!

De-addiction - Know How The Process Actually Works!
Addiction is a organic disorder in which neuroreceptor are involved. It has long term treatment. Substance addiction includes a variety of substances apart from alcohol and drugs. Examples include porn, food, chocolate, nicotine, etc. Situation addiction includes gambling, shopping and sex among others. The problem in our society with addiction is it is treated like a choice than as a major problem faced by an individual. De-addiction is the process of ridding the individual of his dependence on certain substances or activities.

Process

Rehabilitation psychology studies the process of de-addiction and helps addicts blend with the normal lifestyle. Rehab centers offer several forms of therapy to reduce substance usage.
Group therapy is always the go to form of therapeutic technique to deal with cases of addiction owing to the common feeling among users that people who aren t addicted and do not know what they re going through. In those cases, it is rather important to have support from a group of people who are exactly where they are.
Family therapy is also essential to make the individual know how their loved ones feel and also remind them of the unconditional support. Some rehab centers also use the horse therapy (focuses on interaction with horses which facilitates emotional and occupational development in patients) which is rather interesting to witness.
In addition to therapy, rehab centers teach life skills and cooperation. Apart from all this, drugs are also prescribed to deal with addiction along with the weekly scheduled personal therapy sessions.
Although an unfamiliar concept in India, halfway homes are the next step after the rehab. The individuals learn different skills and ways to manage themselves outside the house while still continuing their therapy. This is done to make sure one doesn t relapse right after the rehabilitation has been completed. Most rehabs also suggest support group meetings. Even otherwise support groups are extremely effective in the de-addiction process. Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are two of the most widely managed support groups around the world.

Addiction is an immense issue which has spiraled out of control in today s times. However, it is necessary to understand it isn t the question of the individual s morality. The removal of labels and stigma is essential in the entire process. Support from loved ones is an extremely important step towards de-addiction, right after the acceptance that one is addicted.

Marijuana: What You Need To Know?

Marijuana: What You Need To Know?


Marijuana or herbal cannabis is derived from the bhang plant. Hashish is a more potent form and comes as resin.
Recreational use of marijuana in colleges is at an all time high. Majority of young people use it for it's relaxing abilities and the high that comes with use.
Unfortunately for quite a few youngster's it brings on strong anxiety, panic attacks, paranoia incl. Hallucinations and other perceptual abnormalities.
For some these symptoms last from a few hours or days. Unfortunately, for some this is the start of a long-term serious mental illness like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.
