How I should stop smoking and to be fit with body And for sex to make betTer to me and my gril.

Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine 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 smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

I just want to ask you that how to increase the level of concentration?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions.

You have an anger-related depression and the incidents around your family may be great contributors towards it. I suspect you are not expressing this feeling and therefore the depression. Sometimes you act your anger out with your wife and children making them hapless victims of your inability to express to the elder family members for their gross indifference towards to and your wife and kids. Procrastination is also indicative of anger not expressed. Headaches are directly related to anger. All this stress is causing acidity in your system. This is not laziness in the traditional sense but a lethargy or inertia prompted by unexpressed feelings of anger. You must do regular and vigorous exercise every day. Yoga and meditation is also good to calm you down. Force yourself to do the opposite of what your mind and body feel like doing or not doing. Depression is the only condition I recommend that you must fight with all your might. Work with a counselor and particularly learn to express your anger at home. Many years of suppressed emotions are playing havoc in your system. If none of these have the desired effect, do go to a psychiatrist and seek medical intervention to help with the depression. Whatever happens please do continue with the counseling.

I want to leave cigarette. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Your intention to want to quit smoking is in itself the best starting point. Please read the advice I have given earlier to Mr. Ganesh Kadam, and take immediate measures. Sometimes a little delay in implementing can lead to a change of heart and mind. Then by the time the next desire comes around to quitting, you may be smoking more and it will become even more difficult. Seek the help of your spouse and family/friends during your decision to quit. Announce your decision to quit, and do not buy any cigarettes, any more. Pray about it too. Lead a healthy lifestyle after that and it will make you feel good. Invest the money you save for some reward for yourself because of your decision. Just remember that periodically the urge to smoke will come back, sometimes with a vengeance. At that time you must reach out to your counselor and stave off the temptation till it fades away.

Hello doctor I'll get married after a year. I am afraid from responsibilities. How to make my self worthy in carrier and in personal life. Thanks.

Psychologist, Bangalore
Hello doctor I'll get married after a year.
I am afraid from responsibilities.
How to make my self worthy in carrier ...
You need to be very clear about what you are doing and why you are doing it, whether it is your career or marriage. You need to be clear about what you expect from your marriage and your spouse. At the same time be clear about what responsibilities you would like to shoulder after marriage. Your life will change a lot after marriage and you will be having new role/s. Please check with yourself, what are those responsibilities that you are afraid of, and what makes it so scary for you? Then discuss it with someone who can help you. Also observe, how others are managing similar challenges. Set your own limits. Marriage is" interdependence". Any relations is necessarily" Give and Take" so" give" and" receive" gracefully. Try to understand how you have been shouldering responsibility in life, till now and have faith in yourself for the same. If you have self respect, you will find yourself worthy of any role and responsibility. It is advisable to talk to your fiancé about his expectations from you after marriage and you also can discuss what you would expect from him as your husband. Open communication, realistic expectations from others and self, setting goals and making sincere efforts to achieve them will make you more confident about yourself and you will feel worthy of any role/responsibility. All the best.

I lost somebody who was very close to me, I feel very depressed. Please help me to forget that person.
Losing someone close is definitely a painful process and it takes time one to recover from it. It is important for you to distract yourself and engage yourself in activities that can help you manage you depressive thinking and which you find meaningful and enjoyable to work. Also, I would like you to say to consult a psychologist who will understand in detail your problem and helps you to overcome depression.

I think I am in depression and somehow have turned to alchohol and cigarettes to counter it. I was a person who would refrain from indulging in things like alchohol. But I feel like a victim who has fallen in the vicious trap. What do I do? I socialise with a lot of people but I hardly have people in my life whom I can call friends. Perhaps that' s because of being cheated by many in the past. I am a very short tempered person and this bad quality of mine has brought a lot of attrocities in my life and has seeded up a lot of unwanted enemies in my life. I have had many druken brawls in the past and that has somehow psychologically affected me. People have started judging me for my alchoholic habbits and loud nature. I have suddenly started to become a quieter gut and that is somehow killing me from inside. There is this senior guy from my college. We sometimes work together. I find peace in his company and somehow I feel he cares for me like he would do for his youmger brother. But I am not sure if that is for real or just another illusion. The work pressure in my college has beening adding to all my problems because I am pursuing my degree in textile design and have lately realised that what I would love to do is graphics. Although this course was not a total waste as they had initially incorporate few elements of graphic designing in the earlier semesters but the last two semesters are more inclined toward textiles than graphics and hence I am finding no. Interest towards this. But again, I am just left to two more semesters to have a degree in hand so I am somehow thinking of completing my college and not dropping out as that would literally give a heart attack to my parents. I really understand the value of life. I want to get out of all my problems but somehow don' t know how. Hence I thought it was better to consult an expert rather than thinking about it all day and yet reaching nowhere.

Dear, I sincerely think you should change your attitude first. Judging yourself using the eyes of others is not advisable. Secondly if you want to change any habbit, you should do it. Cribbing about a habit when you are unable to do makes you stressed and anxious and disappointed. Exercise, keeping yourself entertained, being in the company of wife and children and relatives, temples etc help you keep aways from' those' compelling situations. Tale care.

YOu can try these self help or may need antidepressants . 10 Natural Depression Treatments Being depressed can make you feel helpless. But Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day." As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression," Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning." 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression," You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again.

I am cocaine drug addicted boy how can I left this addiction. because I am very depress.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am cocaine drug addicted boy how can I left this addiction. because I am very depress.
When you enter hard drugs, you are into the troublesome area of addiction. I think that the impulse control under the influence of these substances can be very limited. The danger of you doing more harmful things can be heightened. Before you get into that kind of behavior, you please quit at the earliest. To enable that I suggest that you go for immediate rehabilitation to a recovery center and stay there for at least 6 months until you are all clear and clean. Even after that you must continue addiction counseling for at least three years to completely remove the physical and psychological conditioning and craving. You will be told and taught new lifestyles, schedules, habits etc. to totally recover. You must work on the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factor and the script issue. Many people will not be able to resolve drug addiction in particular if they do not reach their ‘Hitting Rock Bottom’, i.e. the worst stage in their addiction to finally want to reform. Unfortunately for some unlucky few that can be death. So do be careful and do not delay seeking help now. If there are relapses, do not get too alarmed and give up. You must again persevere and fight this battle until you come out victorious. Your family members and medical fraternity must be there for you right through this recovery. You will also need to attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings for a long time too after the treatment is over.

Hello lybrate-user, this could be possible unwanted effect of the antidepressants and antipsychotics. Please contact your psychiatrist. Homeopathy is very effective in such cases. Please take lachesis 30 3 pills each at the intervals of 10 mins, three ties before sleep only one night. You will feel a great change in the problem you are having. If not, please contact, I am sure you will do great with the homeopathic medicines. I had a case like yours and he is doing very well. Not only he started ejaculating semen, but his sperm count also came to normal. Moreover, homeopathy is a great friend of depression patients.

It is 4 years since you lost your partner but she is still very much there with you. But what you have made out of your life in these 4 years is not what your partner had ever wanted for you. In other words, by feeling sad depressed you are hurting your partner' s feelings. Please try to be the person she always wanted you to be. Best option is try to search for those people around you who never got what god has blessed you with money, family, etc. If you see people around you will immediately realise you are a blessed person who has lived life fully. So, now why not help someone to live life. Belie me, your life will become meaningful. It is like this, because I have two feet I never realise what it means to be without feet. Help others to be on their feet and you will soon become an indispensable part of others' life. That would be the best gift in the name of your partner.
