Anybody no exception before the nature. Past is not in our hands. So please do not think about himself. Do not discuss about him in family matters. Better to develop busy schedules. Concentrate on your career. Do not sit in home. Do not be alone. Be spend most of time with friends. Be share all the feelings with your closed friends. Go to temples, visit new places, visit friends home and relatives home. Go movies, change the places, taste the new foods. Change the friend circle. Develop friendly nature with others. Be happy all the time best of luck.

You have to stop smoking. These are all signs of developing problems primarily due to tobacco use. To quit do the following: When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. 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 but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. 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.

Once I loved a girl now we are not is relationship since 3 year but my Problem is still I can't forget her. I can't move on, I tried several times but I can't related with a another girl still. And some time I become very dispersed and many time for a small reason I become very hurt and bla bla. I want to overcome from this situation. Can you help me please.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

If you are 21 now, it means that you got into this relationship when you were 18 years or roundabouts! Surely that was too young an age to get serious, even if the seriousness developed later. You are too young and too immature to imagine it being so serious. That itself may have put her off. Any way I am glad that you are out of this relationship because she was not deserving of such commitment. You may have put in a lot into this relationship and it has not worked. Leave it but please learn something from the experience. Besides, you don’t want to be in a relationship where the other person is not interested in you. Quickly get rid of all reminders of this girl, and do not visit the old haunts that you and this girl used to frequent. For some time avoid people, places, and situations that you two enjoyed. In the meantime, please talk extensively to a confidante or counselor about your feelings and thoughts to externalize it out of your system. Do not bad mouth the girl for any reason but go about your life as quickly and normally as possible. Don’t get into another relationship until you have dealt with this loss completely. She has let you down and you need to remember that this is the kind of person she is and do not generalize this to other girls and brand them into the same category. There is surely a girl who is deserving of such loyalty and commitment. But learn your lessons and do not repeat them when you are into another. Keep these three values in mind: be responsible, be respectful, and be functional, always. There are a lot of girls out there and the right one will come along and give you all the satisfaction you need. be patient and go slow and easy in your nest relationship and let it develop on its own.

Alcohol dependence is associated with significant physical, mental and social problems. Physically, there can be liver failure, jaundice, vomiting of blood, passing blood in stools, stomach ulcers, damage to nerves of the body, swelling of legs, fluid collection in abdomen, and many more. Mentally, there is irreversible brain damage, worsening of anxiety or depression, triggering of psychosis and mood disorders, dementia, etc. From a social point of view, there may be isolation from neighbors or family, increased abusive behavior to children or spouses, legal problems, accidents, etc. Alcohol tends to worsen anxiety and so does nicotine. If you continue to smoke and drink, your anxiety will not remit. Also there is chance of other problems happening, like fearfulness, paranoia, etc. Your medication should never be taken with alcohol as the sedation may worsen, making you vulnerable to problems caused by over sedation (aspiration, accidental death, etc). Ideally for a proper recovery, you need to take the medication over a long period of time. The exact duration will be determined by your doctor depending on your response, compliance and improvement. Meditation, yoga and exercise are adjuvants to treatment, not replacement. If the condition is serious enough to warrant medication, merely doing these activities will not be sufficient. Lastly, these medications are not like Crocin or painkillers that you take them as and when you have a problem. If you want complete resolution of your symptoms, you need to take them as per the advice of your doctor and for the proper duration. This sort of experimentation is pointless and futile, with no benefit for you.

I am a daily smoker with one to two ciggerates dailysince last 15 years Can it be harmful? or this much smoking is ok

MD Psychiatry

No. It is not okay to smoke even one or two cigarettes a day. You may not be addicted to smoking. It may only be a habit or a pastime for you. Try to break free from this habit soon. Already you have hypertension. Smoking is just going to multiply the health problems.

Hi, little bit of tension is good for studies but excess of it is not good. Kindly change the method of your learning. Repeat, revise, review. If you get struck in any problem then leave it for time being. Study some other subject and return on that problem later on. Drink water when tensed and also take some deep breaths. This will relax your mind and you will be able to solve the problem.

Dear user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Thinking is a complex mechanism and your mind's job is to think. If you allow you to think without having control over it, it will always wander into negative territories. You should train yourself to keep your thoughts under your control. Cognitive therapy will help you in this case. Take care.

Doctor, I have a difficult to speak fluently or just like talking in speed motion. Only in sometimes I just got sticked while talking because of my tongue fluency. Can not able to speak fluently, I think its because of my tongue. I clean my tongue everyday after brush, also it still remains. Is there any solution doctor?

Let your mind relax- anxiety or nervousness is one of the major causes of stammering. Through proper relaxation this problem can be easily solved. When you are requiired to speak up and make people listen to what you have to say, give yourself a few minutes to clear your mind. It doesn't matter how long it takes to clear your mind. Once the mind has already reached the optimum state of relaxation, next step is to think positive thoughts. Think only positive thoughts and do not worry that you are going to stutter. This in itself is a great cure which will give you an inner confidence whenever you need to communicate. Think about someone you feel comfortable talking with. Start talking softly. Visualize thoughts and word. Read out loud. Slow down your speed of speech. Do relaxation and breathing exercises.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Your son is also having anxiety disorder. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

First of all, this is a psychological problem. I have performed very poorly in my class 12 exams. I was a topper of my class. But my class 12 final performance is disastrous. This is a very important exam in my life. I will not get any job if I perform poorly. I have let down my mother who have trusted me so much. My father hates me and he will turn me away from house if my results are bad. All this thoughts are eating up my mind. My mind is going out of control. I do not know what to do with my stupid life. I feel there is nothing left in my life. I am totally depressed and frustrated. My only skill was my education and now I have messed it up. I do not know what to do, where to go and I think all my life doors are closed. I blame only myself for this. I cannot bear this humiliation. What have I done. Please help me anyone.

Hello lybrate-user. Okay, I can understand the panic and absolute disappointment you must be feeling. You put all your hopes on one thing and not succeeding there could be very scary. But as you have mentioned in your query, you still haven't got the results. May be your fear of failure is making you underestimate your performance. It's better to not count our chicken before they hatch, even the dead ones! so tell your mind to stop believing in'one of the many' possibilities. Yes, you may get bad results but you may get not so bad results also. Secondly, whatever be the outcome you will have to face it. We all do. There is not a single person in the world who hasn't failed at least once. What we do in the face of failure determines our future, not the failure itself. So, you can accept your responsibility (or credit) for the results and figure out what to do next (hopefully, peacefully) with your parents, or blame yourself or someone or something and not do anything to better your situation or, I hope not, do something to put you in more trouble. The choice is yours. Lastly, you said education is your skill. If that is so then you can use it whenever you want. Batting is virat kohli's skill. Sometimes he gets out on the first ball. He is not a skilled batsman? one exam cannot say everything about you, your life or your abilities. Life is much much bigger and you are much much bigger. You will see that. Your parents want the best for you. They will deal with negative events if you are there with them. Help each other out through each other's failures, that's what families do. If you ever feel things are getting out of hand, consult a professional. Problems will come. Go on solving them one by one and you will be fine. Take care.

I stay depressed all the time. I cry daily. Sometimes I cry without any reason. I start crying at small little issues. Actually first the main reason was that I liked a guy who don't like me back because he was already in a relation. So his gf insulted a lot backbited a lot to her friends in her section. I mean yeah I get a lot depressed when people backbite about me. I just want you to recommend what should I do now, I get depressed by only thinking this that I'll have to face them again tomorrow in college. Sometimes I overthink a lot.

Depression does make one think too much on unreal things too. Your depression is definitely related to this rejection by this boy and his gf. But you need not take it to heart. It will only show them that you are weak and a failure. You have to take all this in your stride and still be effective. You must always Be responsible, Be respectful, and Be functional. There are going to be so many opportunities in life to meet other boys and one day the right guy for a lasting relationship. Anyway, you chose wrongly because he was already in another relationship. The more this girl backbites you it only shows how insecure she is and any attempt to malign your name will only backfire on her at some time. So walk tall and with grace. Do not retaliate or try to even the score. Vengeance will only hurt you eventually.

Sir if one person is drinking alcohol daily so how can he avoid drinking alcohol.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Solapur
There are certain medications that can help in control of alcohol if the person is motivated to stop alcohol. In case the person is addicted or dependent on alcohol and is having withdrawals then he needs to be detoxified with use of medications and by abstaining from alcohol. He may also need to be admitted depending on his physical condition. Once detoxification is done we can counsel the patient and help him to stop alcohol with use of medications.
