I am 24 years old I want to quit chewing pan masala but I am not able to do. What should i do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Chewing pan is really harmful especially because it is known to cause oral cancer and oral sub mucous fibrosis (SMF). Since it is an oral habit there are many substitutes that can be used to replace the oral stimulation. Of course since it is a stimulant you cannot get the same effect and that is worth the loss to give up this very addictive habit. A dense fibrous tissue is deposited in the sub mucosal layer of the soft palate and cheek, causing disabling symptoms like trismus. It contains betel nuts, tobacco, lime, catechu and permitted spices and flavors. The first four substances damage the sensitive mucosa, causing constant irritation and micro trauma to the mucosa. Chemicals present act as a toxin. The phenol in the betel nut, with its caustic burning effect, destroys the mucosa, causing oral ulcers. The betel nut also contains tannins, which act as astringents, precipitating protein and damaging the mucosa. Altogether, this substance known to be physiologically addictive. You can use replacements like nicotine chewing gum (if you want the stimulant effect, especially in the beginning) or ordinary chewing gum, hard candy and any other orally satiating substance, especially when the urge is very strong. You would have got conditioned to the habit to different times of the day and different situations. You must particularly avoid those occasions and occupy yourself with something else attractive. You should get into regular exercise, eat healthily, and get a good night’s rest every day. Visit a dentist and clean up your teeth and gums to wipe out all the reminders and damages of the habit. You may also get a thorough oral check up and treatment for any damages incurred.

I was having a relationship of 5 years but my parents didn't accept it right know I am having lot of stress and thinking about her again and again and my exams are also there after 1 week please doctor help me out I can not concentrate well please plz plz?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I was having a relationship of 5 years but my parents didn't accept it right know I am having lot of stress and think...
YOu have to explain the situation to parents and understand the reason for their not approving and and forget the relationship .CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

I am a smoking person. For last 1 year. Is ma body affected well or not? How can I stop this tendency?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello. Smoking causes about 9 out of 10 of all lung cancer deaths in men and women. -Smokers are more likely than nonsmokers to develop heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer. -Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in your body (Bladder, Blood (acute myeloid leukemia), Cervix, Colon and rectum (colorectal), Esophagus, Kidney and ureter, Larynx, Liver, Oropharynx (includes parts of the throat, tongue, soft palate, and the tonsils), Pancreas, Stomach, Trachea, bronchus, and lung. -Smoking can make it harder for a woman to become pregnant and can affect her baby's health before and after birth. -Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. -Smoking can affect bone health. -Smoking affects the health of your teeth and gums and can cause tooth loss. -Smoking is a cause of type 2 diabetes mellitus and can make it harder to control. -Smoking causes general adverse effects on the body, including inflammation and decreased immune function. -Nicotine (which is present in cigarette) stimulates the release of dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and acetylcholine, all of which have been linked to wakefulness, and blood nicotine levels of smokers are highest at bedtime. Thus, smokers spent more time in light sleep and less time in deep sleep. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine which will help you to get rid of your habit of smoking and it’s side-effects. Schwabe's Daphne Indica/ thrice daily for 3 months. After a month, report back to me.

I am feeling quite sensitive about my health from quite some time. This all happened due to anxiety disorder which I suffered from 6 months back and I am doing every possible thing to overcome it. I underwent various checkups ranging from Cardiology to anxiety. However each and every report was fine, and at end of diagnosis I was given etizola by my psychiatrist. After taking this medicine for almost two months regularly I found no pressure in my chest and sensitivity. Everything which gave me sleeplessness vanished off. But I left the medicine in midway and almost after a month the all things like chest pressure, chest pinching returned back. But I have once again started to take medicines and they are relieving me. But I am feeling a slight pain in my wrist and forearm of lEFT side. Please tell me do this all happen due to anxiety or I has to undergo any further checkups All ecgs, digital xray of chest, blood tests etc were good which I underwent 5 months .please tell me is it necessary to have these things done once again.

You seem to be suffering most likely from illness anxiety disorder, wherein their will be extreme sensitivity to minor symptoms and interpretation of these towards a serious illness. It has to be treated by anxiolytics as well as psychotherapy (counselling). Ask your psychiatrist for CBT (cognitive behavior therapy), or ask him to refer to a clinical psychologist for the same. All the best.

Hello doctor, I am 23 years old male. I am having some unknown feelings which I can't resolve what it is. I work in a office, where a unmarried 6 years older than me lady works too. From the start day we became good friends and I used to call her sister and she called me bro. About 5 months past till now. I don't know, why I am getting some unknown feelings for her. We take lunch together, eat together in evening, I like her company. Recently I realized I am liking her too much, I like the way she touches me. I like whatever she does. I can't guess whether it is love or something else, but the point is I am getting too much addicted to her. One day when I can't spend some time with her, I feel so bad. Now in weekend too, I wish there was office and I could spend some time with her. I know she is much elder than me, and what I am thinking about her will never be possible. I am trying to stop my heart thinking about her. But I am unable to do it. I am feeling pain when I am trying to do so. I don't know how to erase this feeling, but I need to be stable now, else I may have serious problem in future. If you advise me to avoid her, I can't avoid her because we both will feel bad then, mostly I. Please tell me how can I get over this problem, so that I don't have to avoid her and also my this unknown feelings for her would be gone. Please reply. Thank you so much.

Since she is unmarried, express your feelings to her and ask for her side of the story. If she says she is just friendly, continue with friendship. If she says she also loves u, no problem marrying an elderly lady, love doesn't have age boundaries as long as both are adults. Get married and have a happy life. Elderly woman are more mature in married life.

If you have already gone through 1 month without smoking, I recommend you avoid any form of nicotine replacement therapy. Peak withdrawal symptoms start from the 5th to 7th day after quitting, and gradually subside. Your anxiety, craving and other withdrawal symptoms will soon fade away. Best to stay away from medicating yourself. Good luck.

Dear lybrate user, you have multiple health issues. Your doctor must have prescribed the medicines after checking all your physical parameters. So if you wish to stop the allopathy medicine, then discuss it with your doctor. If you think the medicines are not working for you, he/she may change the medicines. And you may approach an ayurvedic doctor after consultation with your allopathy doctor. Allopathy and ayurvedic medicines - both have their advantages and disadvantages. The doctors will guide you. You may also consult a counsellor for your anxiety and depression. Medication alogwith behaviour therapy works very well, which the counsellor will help you with. Take care.
