I am having a lack of concentration on things such as books. I forget things. I think I am n depression. Actually I love someone I know she cannot be mine I often dream of getting married to her .I cannot concentrate on anything.
One of my known has started loving me immensely. Even a thought of separation sends him into depression. The thought makes him sad. Even after being convinced or clarified many times. He cannot recover with it. He has developed a sort of addiction. Fr ez if he could not talk. Head ache starts. He finds no point in living more. Bcoz he cannot get me. What shall I do on my part to heal my friend. Shall I lessen contact wid him. Or what? because even lessening the contact can traumatize him more. Wt to do?
I have anxiety and hyperventilation due to disputes in my married life as my husband has married another woman and am in depression because of this please tell me what to do.
I have a gf she loves me. We are in same college. She is little bit scared. She wants to keep our relationship private. I trust on her completely. But I cant live without chatting wid her. From last few days we have been chatting very less. I want to meet her but she always says that this is final year so we should concentrate on our career. So we should study hard we must study hard. Due to these things I dont know why I am getting frustrated frm last few days I am not living my normal life. I want to sleep much more. Bad thoughts of harming myself is coming in mind. All of a sudden everything has changed. I knw these thoughts are very bad. This is affecting my studies also. I just sleep in my room. Pls guide me what should I do to get my nrml life back. This is not me I like enjoying. My smiles are fake. I even dont knw why I m frustrated whether it is due to my gf or something else.
Excess of anything is never healthy and the same applies in the case of alcohol. Alcohol experts have come to a conclusion that drinking too much alcohol reduces affects negatively in both the genders.
Alcohol Myth Busted
Since time immemorial, people have considered alcohol to be an aphrodisiac. However, this myth has been busted time and again by the side effects of excessive alcohol. On the contrary, alcohol is known to induce depression after consumption.
Alcohol, if consumed in unnatural quantity over a period of time can turn conditions like 'brewer's droop', which otherwise might be temporary into permanent impotence. Alcohol addiction is a cardinal sin for couples planning on having a baby. Women, whose bodies are much more sensitive and complex than a man's body, react greatly to even a small quantity of alcohol. Even government's guidelines on low-risk alcohol consumption unit do not guarantee no harm, and people are known to have taken much longer time to get pregnant and irregularity in their menstrual cycles even after abiding by the government's guidelines.
What Is Moderation?
No one is asking you to completely cut down on alcohol. But moderation should then be a religion for all the drinkers. Moderate drinking includes no more than 2 drinks per day (US. Centre for Disease Control and Prevention). The explanation is that your liver can act on alcohol at one standard size drink an hour, so heavy drinking means that too much alcohol for the liver to handle and hence unhealthy toxins are released in the body having an adverse effect on the sex life.
Some of the more common problems caused by alcohol in a couple's sex life are:
- Long-term erectile dysfunction: The most common of all the problems, erectile dysfunction can most commonly be attributed to heavy drinking. 60% of men who are alcohol addicts are known to be suffering from loss of sexual appetite.
- Ruined Families and relationships: Alcohol can be considered one of the biggest inducers of divorce among couples. It makes people less caring and more and more involved in their drinking antics. 90% of domestic violence incidents include alcohol.
- Side effects of smoking: Drinking is usually accompanied by cigarettes and a cocktail of these two substances can be a deadly weapon against your sanity. For men below 40, erectile dysfunction primarily happens because of excessive smoking.
- STDs: Alcohol consumption helps people shed their inhibition and cases of unprotected sex increases. It increases your chances of actually getting an STD. 50% of all impromptu sexual encounters happen in the presence of alcohol and 60% STD spread when alcohol is also in the picture. Young adults who consume alcohol at an alarming rate are 7 times more likely to indulge in unprotected sexual intercourse.
Hence, we see that alcohol addiction does not compliment healthy sex life and therefore people must toe in line at the right time to ensure the wellbeing of their lifestyle and sexual activities. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.
