Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants stop smoking a normal human takes oxygen into lungs 15 -20 times per minute (15 - 20 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day if you need any support please inform.

It is very natural to feel emotional pain in such situation. Give time to yourself to heel and recover from this trauma. Avoid to be alone. If you are able to help and support yourself, you will be able to support your kids. They are going to learn these coping skills from you.

Dear, that is natural. She is stressed. She is stressing herself with her own negative thinking. That is called obsession. Obsession related anxiety increases her bp. You need to consult a psychologist for counseling and if required a psychiatrist for further treatment. Take care.

I have been drinking alcohol since 20 Years regularly, And suddenly I stopped drinking. Is there will be any withdrawal effect on my body ? Does it harmful? Does it life threatening ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It depends because some people react badly and some don't. If you have had no problems so far, no worry. If in case you experience any difficulties of any kind, just visit a doctor and he can treat it immediately with some medication. He will also tell you whether is a withdrawal reaction to alcohol or not. These reactions are hardly ever life-threatening.

How To Recognize Depression In Adults

Alternating between being happy and sad as you go through life's ups and downs is normal, but if you're sad most of the time, it could be a sign of being depressed.  Depression takes the joy out of all your activities, and can make merely getting through a day feel overwhelming. The first step to overcoming this problem is to understand its symptoms and causes.  Not everyone experiences depression the same way, but here are a few questions that can help tell you if you are depressed or not.

Do you feel helpless?
It is common for depressed people to feel helpless and that everything around them is out of their control. As a result, the person may either stop participating in activities all together or try to control things they can't. Both situations are cyclic and lead to further depression.

Have you lost interest in daily activities?
The feeling of helplessness is one of the main reasons depressed people lose interest in activities. Another reason is that activities that were once enjoyed now do not seem interesting enough. In most cases, this leads to the person isolating himself and withdrawing from all his family and friends.

Do you often feel angry or irritated?
Depression is almost always accompanied by irritability and anger. Small annoyances that would usually be overlooked quickly, take on an inappropriate significance. This can lead to poor impulse control, substance abuse and anxiety disorder. In most cases, anger and depression are related by the person trying to take accountability for things that are out of his control and hence feeling helpless.

Is there a change in your sleep pattern?
Your sleep quality is very closely related to the way you feel. Depressed people often suffer either from insomnia or oversleeping. Depressed people can have trouble going to sleep as well as staying asleep. This can cause drowsiness and lethargy during the day. Sleep apnea is also linked with depression. As you can imagine, if this is left untreated, it will only worsen your depression.

Do you feel tired?
When the body does not get adequate sleep, you begin the day feeling tired. Thus, depressed people often feel fatigued and complain of a number of muscle and joint pains.  This is because the body has not had enough time to regenerate cells during the night. This is usually complemented by complains of persistent headache and stomach aches, both of which are emotionally connected to the way you feel.

The nature of depression is such that it lowers a person's self-esteem to the point of interfering with his ability to seek help. Hence, if you have a positive response to the above questions, it is time to address your problem before it worsens.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, my first point here is do not panic, it is a very normal experience any young male can encounter in this age. The main reasons for one to have these symptoms may be due to the following reasons: 1) Lack of knowledge about sexuality 2) Excessive self monitoring 3) Gulit about sex 4) Any previous negative sexual experience 5) side effects of usage of alcohol, drugs, 6) Life stressors, excessive anxiety, fear (most common in your age) My advice is be reassured, just do not think about it, have good social interactions and maintain a healthy life style. If your problem even then persist kindly consult a doctor.

How to control our mind?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , the duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please provide me with more information and post a private question. I will help you with this. Take care.
