Dear, quitting chewing tobacco is no child's play and it takes time and courage. Best method is to completely quit today (now) and sustain with the help of your mind power. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

Hello. Sir I have a memory loss problem about study so can you help me about that.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

It is the effect of weed and you stop. 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. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 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.

I am in a very poor mental condition. My results of class 12 final exams are bad and I have failed to keep up to the expectations of my parents and teachers. I blame myself for this. No one else is to blame. My family life is bit complicated. My mother single handedly bought me up. I was a topper of my school. But then suddenly I suffered some depression in class 10 but recovered after that. But my entire class 11 and 12 studies were very poor as I was distracted all the time. I am addicted to smartphone for I have no friends. I have not visited any place since 2010. It is not possible for us to travel. It is better if I do not talk about my father. He have beaten me and harassed me since childhood. I and my mother do not have money so are dependent on my father. Only for money. Apart from that we have no relation with my father. I cannot concentrate on anything. I always feel like crying. I think sooner or later I have to give up. I cannot take this embarrassment any longer. I cannot find any meaning in life. The last few days have been a living death for me. I am writing this out of utter helplessness.

Hi I'm a 19 year old male and I'm suffering from canker sore, I know that it is mainly due to lack of water for me and sometimes I just forget to drink water at all due my concentration level I guess such as while playing games and doing interesting research or working on some project. Please tell me how to inculcate such a habit so that I never forget to drink water. Thanks.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by making it a habit to carry water with you and drink every half hour Most canker sores clear on their own in one to two weeks. Treatments, if needed, include mouth rinses, pastes and medication..

Hello Doctor, My husband is taking wine since last 10 years, & now his habit of drinking wine is increasing which effects our personal life as well his health. Please advice what should I do to get out him from alcohol addiction?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Ideally, he must want to quit alcohol himself. But there are other things that can be done with or without his cooperation. It sounds like he is an advanced stage of alcoholism and needs admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help him deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by himself because he has become addicted to alcohol and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that he can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems, and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit his by force. This will however, require the wife and family’s consent. You must be firm without nagging him. A counselor will also help in convincing him to give up the drinking.

Hello Doctor, I'm 43 years old since 7 months I am taking 90 ml to 180 ml of whisky daily due to some financial issue. Please advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You see this is exactly the problem: when you have a financial issue you are spending more to drink than to save! this level of drinking can only drown your misery but do nothing to solve it. Therefore, the issue is not getting resolved but your finances will get drained and you will feel more miserable. In fact, you need to do more to earn the money or to reduce expenditure, at least. Please quit and do it now. As time goes by, you will start drinking more because nothing is happening to sort out your issues. You need to be responsible, be respectful, and be functional always. In line with that, it is advisable to quit alcohol and do something responsible instead. The set up is for you to become an alcoholic gradually and you will not know when that happens or when it becomes too late to turn the clock back.

I am 18 years old and student of class 12th. Sir,whenever I go to any of my coaching Phy, che and maths and in schools when I attend class then in between studies my brain goes somewhere else for 20 seconds - 2 minutes. During this period I also don't know where I am between this duration of time. Suddenly my eyes focused on particular thing and after 20 seconds - 2 minutes spends I also thing where I am between this period. And during this period my teacher taught many things but I not always tell the teacher repeat which you taught 2 mins before. And this is not only happen during studies also in watching T.V. (like movies, discovery, news) and also sometimes when I talk to someone and in self studies. I think this I not only the problem of concentration. Sir,Please tell me if it is any diseases. One more thing, Sir,I also drink some poison before 2 years when I am in class 10th before Board exam in December due to not good preparation for exam.

Your 'spacing out' or wild imagination may or may not be a problem depending on the frequency and how far detached you get to the reality. If the frequency and detachment gets too much as in too long, then you may be developing a problem of disassociation which can lead to a lot of complications. Kindly meet with a counselor and if that person wants you to meet a doctor then please do so with full cooperation in both therapies. If it is a passing phase, as it often happens in teenage years, then you do not have to worry too much but let your counselor tell you that. Now for your memory enhancement and concentration and focus: I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: • Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week • Other vegetables: At least one a day • Nuts: Five servings a week • Berries: Two or more servings a week • Beans: At least three servings a week • Whole grains: Three or more servings a day • Fish: Once a week • Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week • Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. • Wine: One glass a day You avoid: • Red meat: Less than four servings a week • Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily • Cheese: Less than one serving a week • Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week • Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

I anger very fast on little things. It increased day by day. I want to be alone. If someone suggest me something, I anger and think for suicide.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Looks like your anger is getting the better of you and is impacting your daily life as well as your relationships. Maybe you don't like people because of how they behave and talk...or maybe you feel rejected by their behaviour. But the anger that you feel is really a choice that you are making because you can very well choose to laugh it off or not get affected as well but you don't seem to be doing that. Thinking of suicide, might be a short cut to peace and happiness but then you would have not used any of the potential that you have within you that wants tocome out. Do you want to let go of all the goodness within you? I suggest that you see a counsellor and learn tips and techniques to manage your anger better and use it to your advantage rather than thinking of suicide. You could talk more assertively and explain your anger instead od expressing it. Go away from the situation, calm down and come back and talk...or count upto 20 and then talk. Maybe listening to the person, might help you to understand their view point and this actually helps build bridges as emotional intimacy increases. Please see a psychiatrist immediately in a nearby hospital if you have been thinking about committing suicide for some time. This forum is not meant for emergency cases.

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.
