Hi, You need medicines as well as counselling also. It is also better to get Shirodhara done for 7 days. Yoga & meditation will also boost your confidence. Do Anuloma Viloma Pranayam daily for 10 to 15 minutes. If you are not getting relief by this then it will be better to see nearby doctor.

Give him mental strength by your magical positive words. Don't ignore him and his needs. After some time you can start speech therapy with love and affection. Keep patience and be a strength of your father, he will be all right soon.

Dear user, I can understand. You must understand the difference between ALCOHOL ADDICTION and abuse. You can definitely quit alcohol in one go. Just stop it and swear not to drink again. Engage yourself in games and other engaging activities during evenings or when you feel the urge. Just a week, your habit should change. There are many other methods, which you can see through internet. The best method is what I suggested. Please try it without fail. Take care.

I am 22 years old person studying in college. From my childhood I was not good in interacting with people. When someone come to me and asked something I couldn't reply in a good manner. So I didn't have that much friends. Anyway I understood I was not good in socially at later 16s. I started changing my self but there where any good results (some slight changes are there). I am always dreaming about past incidents as making my self good and find pleasure in it. I visualise the same in my mind repeatedly sometimes. I was good at delivering speech during my schooling and got many prizes. But at the same time very low behavioural skills. Now in my hostel everyone teasing me but I can't oppose them. If someone asked something in a tweezing way I get silent and failing to handle the situation and sometimes I hide from that persons. In my dreams I am OK but in real situations I am far behind. Please resolve my problems and suggest me some some ideas to overcome.

Dear Lybrate User. You have expressed the issues you are facing in a clear and lucid manner, kudos for that .You have mentioned you are good in public speaking and have won prizes for that, it shows you are bold and articulate. Rather than dwelling on the past live in the present moment and day to day. Make friends with those with whom you can share interests and hobbies. Ask your close friends and relatives what you can do to improve your inter- personal skills. If you feel you might require a language course / accent or soft skills training, go ahead and do a course for that. Take some time out and set up goals for yourself - long term and short term. Live your life according to that .Re look at your self and your situation objectively and make a plan accordingly. Enjoy life and all the opportunities that come your way and look at obstacles as areas where you can learn something new. Do write to me if you do want any further assistance. Wishing you all the best. With Regards,

It seems that your indecisiveness stems up from your childhood days and it has become an ingrained character in your personality. Our personalities are nothing but a set of well formed and practised behaviour. If you wish to change your indecisiveness and become independent, you have to take an initiative and start working on it. Consult a psychiatrist personally. Discuss on all your issues with a complete history of your complaints. A definite and planned rational emotive therapy course of few sessions would certainly help you. Good luck. Take care.

World No Tobacco Day - Making An Effort To Control Tobacco Usage!

World No Tobacco Day - Making An Effort To Control Tobacco Usage!

When man first started using tobacco, he probably did not know that it would grow to be an epidemic that could cause multiple health issues. Be it smoking or chewing, tobacco has severe negative effects on health. Take any of current lifestyle diseases from diabetes to infertility to obesity, the common risk factor is tobacco abuse. In addition, depending on the form of tobacco used, specific organs are affected. For instance, chewing tobacco leads to oral cancer while smoking causes lung cancer.

The statistics around tobacco abuse are extremely startling and can be read below:

  • A total of about 90 trillion rupees are spent on various tobacco products.
  • About 1.4 trillion is spent on healthcare related to conditions caused by tobacco abuse.
  • India has about 120 million tobacco users.
  • More than 7 million people die every year due to tobacco usage.
  • The Government has levied a GST of 28% on cigarettes, making them unaffordable, which is one of the ways to promote quitting.
  • For those who want to quit but are not able to, there is a quit-line setup, which is toll-free, 1800-11-2356 and is accessible from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Tobacco is a menace in all the strata of society. The lower economic classes are adversely affected both due to lack of knowledge and healthcare facilities. Therefore, the government uses the World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) that is observed by all members of the World Health Organization as an opportunity to drive this awareness.

This is celebrated on May 31st every year. Some measures that are taken to promote 'say no to tobacco' campaign are listed below.

  1. In 1975, the Cigarettes (Regulation of Production, Supply, and Distribution) Act was introduced, which made it mandatory for cigarette packs to have a warning stating “Smoking Kills” or “Smoking is injurious to health.”
  2. Marketing campaigns are shown in the movie theaters at the beginning of movies which depict the hazards of tobacco
  3. Smoking is banned in most public areas, and warnings are on display.
  4. Children below 18 are not sold tobacco products. If in doubt, the seller can ask for age identification.
  5. Schools and colleges do not have tobacco selling within 100 meters of the campus.
  6. The price increase ensures that not everybody has easy access to cigarettes.
  7. Celebrities promote quitting tobacco and smoking by talking about their personal stories.
  8. Restaurants have separate smoking sections where children are not allowed to sit
  9. Tobacco in form of beedi and gutkha also needs to be targeted, as the lower income groups often use these. Also, beedi is sold as single units, so cost is not a deterrent.

How can a healthcare professional help you?

A healthcare professional plays a vital role in a smokers life, as it the healthcare professional that can increase the odds of quitting with guidance, medication, and support. 

What should a healthcare professional do?

  • Identify people who smoke 
  • Motivate them to quit or think about quitting
  • Refer a person who smokes for treatment and support
  • Support ongoing abstinence

What is the right smoking cessation strategy?

  • Ask: Every smoker to visit a healthcare professional
  • Advise: Urge the smoker to leave smoking
  • Assess: Assess whether the person is willing to quit in 30 days
  • Assist: Plan and help Rx Quit
  • Arrange: Arrange a follow-up through phone or sms or in person

What is that people who smoke need help with?

  • First and  the foremost challenge are the withdrawal symptoms 
  • Urge to smoke and borderline depression with a possibility of relapse
  • People who have high pre-abstinence nicotine intake

How to get over the initial withdrawal discomfort?

  • Behavioral support is of proven efficacy
    • Can be delivered in different formats
      • Face-to-face
      • Telephone
      • Internet
  • Nicotine replacement therapy and nortriptyline are of proven efficacy

Facts On Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)

  • There are no real contradictions related to NRT
  • No drug interactions 
  • Side effects, if there are any are localized e.g.
    • Taste of oral products
    • Hiccups with the mouth spray 
    • Skin irritation with patch 

Treatment for quitting Nicotine 

  • Medications: Medicines which are useful adjuncts in the determined but unsuccessful quitters are Varenicline and Bupropion
  • Electronic cigarette: Electronic cigarettes are not as effective as imagined and have few side effects 

Though smoking out in the open has reduced, there are miles to cover when it comes to eradication of tobacco.

Hello. I'm seeking help for my relative. He's 27 of age highly intelligent, sharp but disturbingly introvert. He's an iim/IIT but have been asked to resign from last companies he's somehow managed to work with. He ill treats his mom and brother. Is angry and annoyed. waste all his time sleeping or playing games on computer. He never leaves home , even his room. I think he's in severe depression and needs help. But we aren't able to convince him for that. He won't meet anyone at all. Doesn't talk to anyone other than his mother. When forced with love even if with strict behavior for getting a job or making his life better/ or getting help. He starts rough and arrogant behavior .start throwing stuff around and says he'll commit suicide. We have no clue how to deal with this situation and help him. We were thinking of not caring him at all for few days, like making mom to stay away for a week from him. So that he could realize that he actually would need other human contact in future apart from his mother. Would it work?? Or worsen the case? We fear for if he'll go somewhere and do something wrong. Please help by suggesting something to make our life better.

From what you are describing he may be suffering from a more serious psychiatric illness than depression. Sometimes patients are not aware of their illness and hence refuse treatment. In such cases treatment can be offered with the family's consent. He needs family support and we cannot predict how he would respond to being left alone. Consult a psychiatrist as soon as possible.

Do. Not worry. It will not appear again. Take plenty of liquids. Do not take onion spicy food and oily food. Only apply lemon juice on your face for one hour daily for five days and wash it.

Am a smoking person, am smoking past 12 yrs, now I want to quite smoking bcoz I go to got the marriage. Pls advised me.

It’s not too late to reverse the effects of smoking. An overwhelming amount of damage to your health can be reversed by quitting. Studies have shown that quitting at around age 30 reduces the chance of dying from smoking-related diseases by more than 90%. If you quit at around age 50, you reduce the risk of dying prematurely by 50% compared with those who continue to smoke. Even those who quit at around age 60 or older live longer than those who continue to smoke. Not only that but you’ll experience immediate health benefits from being a nonsmoker – as quickly as 20 minutes after you quit. What Happens When You Quit Immediately after quitting smoking, heart rate and blood pressure, which is abnormally high while smoking, begin to return to normal. Within a few hours, the level of carbon monoxide, which reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen, begins to decline. Within a few weeks, circulation improves, you don’t produce as much phlegm, and you don’t cough or wheeze as often. The workload on the heart is decreased and cardiac function is improved. Food tastes better, and your sense of smell returns to normal. Everyday activities no longer leave you out of breath. Within several months of quitting, you experience significant improvements in lung function. In one year, your risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke is halved. In five years, many kinds of cancer, including lung, larynx, mouth, stomach, cervix, bladder, show decline in risk, and that decline approaches the risk of someone who has never smoked. Within 10 to 15 years, risk of lung disease, including bronchitis and emphysema, are decreased. Conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, thyroid conditions, hearing loss, dementia, and osteoporosis are positively affected. Nerve endings in the mouth and nose begin to regenerate, improving taste and smell. Medications may work better, enabling some to be taken in decreased doses. If you’re taking birth control pills, quitting smoking will decrease your chance of heart attack and stroke due to clotting. You’ll have decreased risk for impotence and infertility. If you’re pregnant, you’ll protect your unborn child from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and low birth weight. Years will be added to your life: people who quit smoking, regardless of their age, are less likely than those who continue to smoke to die from smoking-related illness.
