I have a friend. We both are very close to each other and share every secret. He has one elder brother, aged 31, working in a call center and one younger sister, completed her engineering searching for jobs. My friend is pursuing CA. His father is working in Railways and mother is a teacher. His parents have completed more than 32 years of marriage. Issue is his father at present is a earning more than 1lakh per month but he is not spending a single penny in the family or on himself. From the day they had got married. His salary comes to his account but within 1or 2 days he himself encash the whole amount by cheque and does not disclose where that amount is. When his mother ask to him regarding his salary for housing and other expenses his father tells salary has not came yet or I have sent those money to his sister or brother or sometimes to my friend. His father always lies to all the family members. They don't have a proper house to live. His mother is very much concerned about childrens wedding. What ever she is earning gets spend. She is not having any savings because of this. He and his siblings are staying away from home. His father has also got posted in Dhanbad, Jharkhand. Mother is staying in Patna alone. His father very often comes to Patna on weekend for Saturday or Sunday. Sometimes only for Sunday. Sometimes not at all. He is facing problems in his studies as the passing percentage is very low in the institute and his father keeps on telling him to fill the forms for Government Jobs but does not give him a single penny for anything. He gets only Rs. 5000 from his mother. Which is very hard to manage in a city like Delhi. He was telling he is very much disturbed regarding his family and his studies. Because of this he is facing failure from past 3 years and has got very much depressed. He is having tension all the time in his mind this has caused baldness for him. Please suggest how to handle the situation as his age is about 30 years old and still no job and he has not yet married. He is very much disturbed for lot of reasons. I feel very bad for him facing such issues. Please help!

It is very nice of you to care for your friend. As you are very close to your friend it is natural for you to feel bad for him. From what you have written it is apparent that your friend will not be able to change his father's behaviour. Also unless his parents are willing and open he or anyone else won't be able to do much about them. It is also clear that his mother has single handedly cared for her children and earned and raised them. This may sound harsh. I am very surprised that at about 30 years your friend is still depending on his mother and father financially. Not only that he blaming his father for not supporting him financially. Your friend should grow up and take charge of his life. Instead of feeling helpless or blaming either circumstances or his father for his destiny- he should invest his energy into. Completing his study, getting good grades and find a job. I. Am glad he is not married yet. He should not think about marriage until he is able to support himself. As a good friend I think you could take this opportunity to make your friend understand his own responsibility towards his life. He seems to be an intelligent person who if focus in his study would be easily able to pass and also secure a good job. I think you need to help him change his focus from blaming and expecting things from his father to taking charge of his own life. If you think he needs any specific advice then please feel free to book an audio consultation with me. It is truly painful to see such a talented young man not able to utilize his full potential. If need be he could speak to a counselor or psychologist for 2 to 3 months on a weekly basis. I do help you understand what I am saying regarding your friend taking charge of his life. Wishing you both very best.

Appreciate your concern for your friend! the symptoms you have described are of obsessive compulsive disorder also known as ocd. He needs to visit a psychiatrist as earliest as possible. Early intervention helps in curbing further damage. So do help him if possible.

Dear, Nicotine and alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

Spend your time in nice activities like nice books and articles , and avoid cheap and flickering pleasure of smoking weed which can damage your life. Smoking weed is an intoxicant which is bad for body, mind and well-being. One should be ready to realize the bad effects, then one can avoid smoking weeds by engaging mind and body in more constructive activities Please remember that Smoking weed is toxic to your body , mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit , the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of smoking can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in smoking. In place of smoking, spend your time by doing yoga.

Hi, i'm smoking from past two years now I want to stop it how can i?

Congratulations, that is really good that you want to stop smoking because it is really very harmful. Just the fact that you want to give up smoking is a good starting point. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

If you are already on medication for anxiety, depression, or blood pressure, there is risk of interaction between that and ginseng. Do not self medicate or take any over the counter medication/ health supplements without the advice of your doctor. Adverse side effects can occur.

Hello,

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user, yes, it seems you have agoraphobia. Agoraphobia is a mental health condition characterized by irrational fears about being in public places. The condition causes afflicted individuals to avoid public places and remain trapped in their homes. Coping with your own agoraphobia involves facing up to the irrationality of the fearful thoughts it produces, and seeking help from others. While it may be very unpleasant, you should do your best to regularly expose yourself to the situations which trigger your fear and panic. In modern life, exposure to public places is inevitable, and the more you resist, the worse the consequences will be for your life. Don't go it alone. Having a trusted friend or family member with you when you are on the bus, at the store, or in any other triggering situation can be a great help. A therapist can help you explore" exposure therapy" in which you intentionally seek out situations which trigger your fear response. For an agoraphobe, this means voluntarily exposing yourself to crowds, public places, or wide open space. This must be done gradually, and with great care, so that the fear and panic do not become overwhelming, putting you or others in danger. It is best to consult with your therapist before attempting exposure therapy. Now, if you find yourself panicking in a public place, try to focus on controlling your breath instead of fixating on fearful or anxious thoughts. Breathing slowly and deeply will help naturally calm your body's physiological response to fear, reducing its severity. Close your eyes, count slowly to 10, and focus on breathing in through the mouth, and out through the nose. Visualize calming environments and images, and remind yourself that you are in no danger, and that the episode will pass lastly, challenge irrational thoughts. Many of the anxious and fearful thoughts associated with agoraphobia are irrational, meaning that they are not based in fact. Understanding this, you can work to correct your thoughts by challenging them with evidence. When you are in a situation which triggers your agoraphobia, ask yourself these questions: do facts or evidence support my fearful thinking, or are they irrational? if a frightening or dangerous situation occurs, what steps could I take to remain safe? what would I say to another agoraphobe to comfort them in this situation? have I felt this way before while in a similar situation, and, if so, were my fears warranted? consult with a psychologist sir, thats the best way to benefit and overcome the fear. Consult with me for same. A all the best.

This is possible if you had not sought counseling while on medication. You can still do so now and find that there are a lot of coping mechanisms that need to be imbibed to make good your recovery. If the counselor thinks that you may need to meet with the doctor again then go ahead and do so but do not discontinue the counseling at any cost. I am quite hopeful that with this approach you will do justice to your treatment and come through with real stability.

Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and or callisthenic exercise 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, 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. The right brain also indulges in a lot of lateral thinking, which is normally good for creativity. But in your case it will creatively increase the problem and make you more disturbed. 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 are 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.
