Sex thoughts, Sex addiction, masturbation addiction, porn films addiction etc comes under behavior addiction. Behavioral addiction is a form of addiction that involves a compulsion to engage in a rewarding non-drug-related behavior – sometimes called a natural reward – despite any negative consequences to the person's physical, mental, social or financial well-being. Behavior addiction needs to be curbed or controlled using your own self will power. Diverting your mind and body away from the circumstances which compels you for the addictive habit, with the help of physical exercises, games, entertainment etc can help you. Never sleep alone. Be always with your family even at night etc are some other tips. Willpower is the key always. Behavioral therapy also works well. Take care.

Dear, Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you?re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse ?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I am 37 year old male. I have to resign from my job due to medical exigency of my parents a year ago. Being having good professional experience I am still not getting job. My mind all the time keeps on thinking anything i. E. Negative thoughts. I am depressed & cry a lot alone. Some time I talk to myself. I am unable to think sometime. I have lost all hopes of my life. I feel lonely in life. I do not sleep at night. I do not feel to eat anything. Everyday I am in tension. Feel not to survive any more in the world. In crises all relatives & friends have withdrawn their hands from us. Doctor please guide me what should I do and why all this is happening to me. I was very strong & bold man earlier but now.

At your age, a break in service will have a negative effect. But since you had a medical contingency to tackle you can always explain that as your reason. You need to apply to a lot of placement agencies, both online and recruitment offices. The job market is improving and will take a big positive swing soon. You have got to persevere. Do not cry alone, ever: you will easily get into a self-pity mode and that will never help you. Go meet a counselor and share your feelings. An idle mind is a devil? s workshop: you will be plagued by negative thoughts. Do you have faith? trust and pray to god often and with persistence. Do not become passive in these circumstances. Do regular exercises, eat well, sleep well and be positive. The whole body, which is each and every cell, responds to your thoughts. If change your negative thoughts to positive ones, your body and mind will respond likewise. Success is measured by the number of times you fell and yet stood up. Learn to depend on people who are trustworthy, always. Life will always have its challenges. And when it rains it pours. Be strong and reach out to reliable people. Life is precious and everything that can sustain it and stretch it, is always the mantra of the medical profession, and should be yours too. When you overcome these hurdles, you will one day look back with pride, if you fought the good fight.

How to quit cigarette ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke 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 smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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. 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 smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also 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. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Dear lybrate-user, mobile phone addiction is almost equivalent to other addictions. The pleasure center of your brain gets activated and it asks you for more and more. You need to find another alternative activity which gives you more pleasure than mobile phone. Engaging in entertainment, games etc can give you more pleasure.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 AM and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times, "Practice makes Perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing . Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6AM. Example some people they don't like Mathematics but it is essential for Life everyday and every time we are depended on Mathematics, Right from Doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds It is like love issues. still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person or audio/video. please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

Dear , this is not a problem of your workman ship or talent. Your company cannot afford you and therefore, they told you to quit. They gave you just a reason. That reason does not mean that you are not talented. There are many opportunities in front of you. In fact for your experience, you should get another job which pays more. Please do not dwell in past. Your past company do not deserve you. Also god wants you to work for more salary and in good atmosphere. Think positive. I want to talk to you. Please contact me and I will help you out of this situation. Take care.

Give up smoking

If you're a smoker, quit. It's the single best thing you can do for your heart health.

Smoking is one of the main causes of coronary heart disease.

A year after giving up, your risk of a heart attack falls to about half that of a smoker.

Dear Doctor, do we have to keep our mind always relaxed and happy to avoid many diseases like heart problem, diabetes?
Yes of-course be positive always and be normal in every circumstances.Surrender to god, have faith on him and you will free happy and relaxed. It has experienced by my self if you don't take tensions about anything and shift them to god then he will take care of you and you feel stress free and if you feel like this then you may not feel any physical problem. But it is also require that every person have to die who born in this earth so diseases are the reason for it some time. Except every thing as they happen in your life. May god bless you always.

Hello I read your question. It seems as if you are bothered with constipation/irregularities of your bowel habbits. Let me tell you how can your digestive system be regularized. First of all have a look at your life style. Regular sleep and dietary habbits, in most of cases suffice. Any addictions, may be smoking, drinking, tobacco chewing etc. Also have bad effects on digestion. In addition, increase mix salad helps a lot. Add fruits of season compulsorily to lunch. Extra effort for thw problem maay be taken in the form of 2 spoons of honey added to half a cup of warm water every morning empty stomach is excellent remedy. A week or so, if followed the above, still persistent, medicines may be prescribed. Not now. Hope satisfied. Regards.

What does our body actually loose when we masturbate? Does it has a bad effect on body? Wich will result to weakness or loss of memory power?

BHMS
Homeopath,
What does our body actually loose when we masturbate? Does it has a bad effect on body? Wich will result to weakness ...
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. The semen which is ejaculated during masturbation is protein in nature. So over masturbation may lead to deplenishment of the protein content in your body. Protein is needed for muscular growth. So loss of protein is not advisable for any human being.

I am a college student I want to ask how I can overcome depression? I'm not able to eat in that condition.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am a college student I want to ask how I can overcome depression? I'm not able to eat in that condition.
At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Loss of appetite is not unusual for people depressed. Some hormonal changes will definitely affect the situation too. So the doctor will advise you fo what to do apart from​ these suggestions.
