I have been able to control my smoking habit, I been been able to curb it from 8 in a day to 3 in a day. Honestly I do wanna quit it or bring it down to 2 in a day, What I wish to know is how much does it affect it I consume 3 in a day, will it be equally destructive as it was before?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It will be less destructive to smoke less but the habit continues and that is what is a problem. When you are addicted, reduction is not much of an achievement. There is no such thing as a ‘little addiction’. So any attempt must be complete, abrupt, and immediate. Even a delay by 24 hours can sabotage the resolve. With epilepsy to boot, smoking a packet a day is a deadly addiction. But it is not easy because there is a lot of conditioning associated with it and these can be spread over the whole day and night! Since you want to quit I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. You need to identify with why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. 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, for a little while. 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 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. Perseverance with it until you are completely over it, is the key. You are still young and all the ill-effects of the habit can be restored and you can regain a lot of the losses: monetarily too.

Hello sir, my age is 19 year and my height is low 4'9" My mind concentration is low and I have not remember anythings.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

Hello sir,  my age is 19 year and my height is low 4'9" My mind concentration is low and I have not remember anythings.
We all are aware of the fact that our height increases up to a particular age and then it comes to a halt. Height increases up to the age of 18years in women and up to the age of 20 years in men. Increase in height is attributed to the production of growth hormone, called the HGH( Human Growth Hormone), which is secreted by the pituitary gland called the master gland of our body. It is rather difficult to increase height after reaching adulthood as the production of these hormones slowly stops. In most cases, the epiphyses of the long bones are fused as the last bits of cartilaginous tissue in the bones turn into solid hard bones. This prevents any further growth in longer bones. However, if the hormones are released naturally, increase in height can be observed. Increase in height at your age depends upon a no. of factors like 1.Heriditary factor 2.Recorded any increase in height in last 6 months 3.Amount of effort you are putting in for increase in height 4.How much serious are you for your height 5.Will you give 100% if I show you a direction 6.Just do your bit with full determination and leave the rest to time,exercises and medicines. Consult me Fast for Homoeopathic consultation as you short of time Homoeopathic medicine BACOPPA MONNERI ( Wilmar Schwabe India) Chew 2 tab twice daily BREN-UP ( ALLEN ) Drink 2 spoon 3 times daily Bramhari pranayam daily for 15 minutes Report after 30 days

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal.

Dear lybrate user, night fall per se is not a problem. It is happening because sperm production in your body is normal. It will come out either by sex or masturbation. If you are not doing either of two semen & sperms can leak at night when there's normal nocturnal erections, or during urine, or passing stools, lifting weight, or any other stage which will arouse you. So basically it doesn't mean you have illness or you will become weak. There is no connection between blood & sperms, so loosing sperms will never cause any kind of weakness. If you still fear or have doubts we can do a therapy + medicines which will resolve your problem completely.

You seem to have gone through a lot and still managed to do well for yourself. If you wanted to leave your brother and still maintain relationship, then you could have done it without the condition of him improving his behavior with you. Now he's probably feeling guilty as well as upset with you for wanting to change him. If you want to leave, then you leave citing reasons which are about you and not about him. Take responsibility for your decisions and then decide and leave. Also you must weigh your pros and cons of leaving the safety of your brothers house. You must think about your safety, finances etc before leaving his house. If you feel confident on these fronts then go ahead and leave. But the responsibility of your actions shouldn't come on your brother. You can still do well in studies if you live with your brother. It's in your hands. If you let it affect you. It will affect you. There is no guarantee that you will not face negativity somewhere else. It's all in the mind. Some people have done very well while living in very negative environment.

Dear lybrate user, you are in grief. You are missing your mother. Losing your mother in an accident must have been very traumatic for you. You need some time to come out of this pain. Please talk to your family and friends about your mother abour how painful it is for you. Cry, if you want to. Relieve yourself of this pain. Seek support from your family and friends. About your financial problems, talk to someone elder and more experienced person. Understand your own skills and start earning. May be you can start tutions, pick up part time job etc. Take one small step at a time. Be consistent in your efforts. Keep trying till you succeed. Once you get relief from both these issues, you will be able to sleep. Take care.

For my anxiety problem my doctor prescribed me Inderal and Lonazep MD 0.25mg For 15days. Should I take this medicines...
Hi. Medicines for anxiety should be taken regularly and on time, besides this if stopped suddenly, can lead to withdrawal effects. Being a Homoeopath, can suggest you Homoeopathic medicine which are safe to take without even causing any side-effects! So, you can think of taking them. Here are few asanas which will help you in reducing the anxiety problem. -Sit in the meditation position (cross-legged or heel seat) and put the hands in the lap. The back is straight and the belly relaxed. Stop one minute every thought. Then remain in meditation, thoughts can come and go as they please. All feelings of anger, fear and grief appear and dissolve by themselves. -Dhanurasana: Lie on your stomach with your feet hip-width apart and your arms by the side of your body. Fold your knees and hold your ankles. Breathing in, lift your chest off the ground and pull your legs up and back. Look straight ahead Keep the pose stable while paying attention to your breath. Your body is now taut as a bow. Continue to take long deep breaths as you relax in this pose. But don’t get carried away! Do not overdo the stretch. After 15 -20 seconds, as you exhale, gently bring your legs and chest to the ground. Release the ankles and relax. -Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. Anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like Balasan, Setu Bandha Sarvangasan, Uttanasan, Garudasan, Savasana, Triconasana, Viprita Karani, Marjaryasana, Dhyana, Bhujangasana, Anulom-Vilum, Pranayam, etc. Another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc. (Believe me, you would really enjoy doing this alone as well or may be with your friends, kids). Medication: Take Bakson’s Calm Aid tablet/ 1 tablet daily once for 4 weeks. And do practice breathing exercises (Pranayam, Anulom-Vilum) and meditation.

Hi lybrate-user, you are suffering from social anxiety. When you are around people stop focusing on yourself and start focusing on other people more. You have to learn over period not to be concious and be comfortable with yourself. You have developed this attitude for some reason, we need to talk about it and CBT is a kind of therapy which will help you overcome this problem. You can consult with me or any psychologist for same. Practice deep breathing exercises to calm your anxiety.
