Hi, I am 24 years old. Does smoking marijuana causes weight loose and what all others health hazard caused due to smoking marijuana?

Just for your information here’s what WebMD has to say: ‘No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat baked goods or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don’t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: • Dizziness • Shallow breathing • Red eyes and dilated pupils • Dry mouth • Increased appetite • Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.’ It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ‘cross hallucinations’ i.e. for example, you can see sounds and hear colors!!! If you are finding it very difficult to give it up on your own then admit yourself in a rehabilitation center and go through the 12 steps to recovery. After that attend NA meetings and keep yourself clean forever. You will need to alter your lifestyle, change your friends, your haunts, your habits, etc. You must learn to have fun in clean ways. You must exercise regularly, eat well and sleep well. Emotionally you must be able to handle your feelings by expressing them appropriately. A counselor will teach you about emotions and how to handle them.

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.

I'm suffering from BIO POLAR Depression. Please suggest me remedies for this depression in natural method.
Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Typically, treatment entails a combination of at least one mood-stabilizing drug and/or atypical antipsychotic, plus psychotherapy. The most widely used drugs for the treatment of bipolar disorder include lithium carbonate and valproic acid (also known as depakote). I am sure, natural remedies usually do not work. But cognitive behavior therapy, relaxation therapy, life style changes etc do work. Please do not worry. I suggest online cbt and other therapies. Take care.

Sir I have been taking for treatment of ocd since last three years but only partial relief. What should do. Medicine are xet cr25 and prodep 20 mg .

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Xet cr 25 as well as prodep 20 are clearly doses at which a lot of people with OCD are unlikely to respond. If this is the maximal dose that you have been tried on, the answer to your question is simple. Just increasing the dose under supervision can do the trick. Also, if you are taking both these medicines together, that is not correct - it is likely to be associated with more side effects and less benefit. I am not sure why there has been a delay of three years in your treatment when it appears quite straightforward. Take care!

Nail-biting behaviour may be one of the symptoms of anxiety. Spend some quality time with him. Let him speak about his frustrations, anger, resentments, fears or any other negative emtions from his school, social and family lives periodically. Try some yoga&meditation techniques from a qualified yoga teacher who can design for his age. These may help him reduce his anxiety levels. Apart from these, there are some behaviour therapeutic techniques which can be useful if given by a psychiatrist/psychlogist.

How I can concentrate in my studies. Give some methods or tips or any type of secret method for study. Please tell.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Masters in psychology counselling
Psychologist, Hyderabad
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 lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I am 19 year old male. I want to find out that am I a extrovert or introvert. Because I do not know myself. I just want to know what type of nature I have. I searched over the net, I am confused. Like I have friends I go out with them but if I have some tv series or movies or anything interesting that I can do alone, I choose that over them. I do not like small talks because I am not good at them. But I can talk to anybody as long as there is no string attached. And its like I want to be an introvert thats why I am thinking like that. But before that also means before college I used to go out to play with friends. I have many friend now but sometimes I feel alone. I go to parties and places with friends if I have not visited that or have not tried. When I am with people its feels like I am acting because when I am with family I act different, with school friend, college friend, or anybody I meet I act like person what I wanna show. But when any two group meet like my two different friends that situation makes me panic at that time I do not know how to act. I do not know that is why I do not invite friends at my home. I spent my half a day watching movie or surfing alone. I know deep down I have to do something productive I am wasting time by doing that but reality makes me anxious. So I do not know who am i? Because to some person I am intelligent, to some I am loser, or to some I am silent, or to some a guy speaks a lot. So please clear my confusion.

People who are both introvert and extrovert to some extent are called ambivert and this label is not important what others think of you is not important what concept you have formed about yourself is more important. You are in your growing periods and personality develops by age of 18- do not over analyze every aspect and enjoy life think less. Consult me for counseling and therapy. All the best.

There is no need to think negatively now because there is everything to think negative. But that does not matter. Select your career and continue to think negative. Nothing will happen. Take care.

This depression can be due to some diseases you are suffering and you have not mentioned it. It can also be due to hypothyroidism and anemia. SO check your blood CBC and TTFT. If these are normal you need to take antidepressants and meditation and yoga will also help.

I am not too clear about some aspects of your question. First of all, this is not a compatible marriage due to the age difference and that this'kid' is still a minor and this whole matter is illegal. Just because no one else will marry you it does not mean that you should sleep with anyone who is there. It is also not true that no one will marry you: there are plenty of people around who will marry you. It is pure superstition and irrational conclusions. If you are pregnant, you can have the child and even if it is out-of-wedlock, and even after that you can get married to someone else but not to this boy. He is already setting terms and conditions without even being matured. At any cost, you must get out of this arrangement, whatever people say and think. This is illegal and grossly inappropriate. At least you should be sensible about all this although already you have not acted sensibly while allowing sexual contact.

Dear, according to your situation, you should not try to mend up the issue. Because later, after marriage, the problem could escalate. The best option is to forget the episode. When you decide to forget the episode, the psychological trauma will end within some time. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Sir, my husband has faced a lot in the former year, he used to be very calm person, most sincere about his relationships with other, he is a kind of guy who can never hurt anyone intentionally, he love me so much but as his parents are getting divorce and after so many financial crisis, he has become very hard to handle. By this I mean his total personality has changed, he is very rude and he really can't control his temper, by time he has become overly possessive for me, he look for things that may relate to my past or that he makes issue out of everything, former I felt that he don't really care about me because whenever I cry he dont pamper me instead he start to yell at me as if cry is a crime, he do realizes his behaviour towards me and appologises but then again he become rude. I consider it as medical disturbance because. Umm. For instance yesterday we went out on for movie, we really had a great day, he loved me so much and by night he asked me for divorce. This sudden change in his behaviour and mood swings, I am worried!

Dear , I can understand. Your worries are definitely a matter of concerns and your husband's behavior also has reasons. He is stressed from work side, disappointed in life etc. Because of those problems, his behavior towards you could have been a bit erratic. Don't worry. Can you request him to consult me online? two or three counseling sessions should do good to the whole of your family. Take care.

I got addicted to smoking since last three years. I can't resist it. What should I do get off of it? Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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. 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.
