I guess, you are not getting along well with your husband and/or in-laws. In a marital relationship, two different individuals from completely different backgrounds come together and try to create a new bond together. It takes time to understand each other. Try to understand your husband's needs and his view points (his perspective). Also be aware, what will make you happy and try to pin point exactly what is bothering you. Once you do this, then try to communicate this with your husband when you both are not agitated. Give each other enough space. Remember, that marriage is neither" total dependence" nor" total independence" it is" interdependence" if you both are working or staying with your in-laws then this can put additional stress on your relationship" effective communication is lifeblood of any relationship" - try to communicate with all your important relations. Assertively. Talking to a marriage counsellor will also help you. Take care.

I am a 27yr old and have alcoholism last 6 months can you give suggestion for to stop drinking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I do not know how much alcohol you have been consuming but you can follow these guidelines anyway. It is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with your family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast.

Dear, stress is the biggest cause for overweight and also maintains diabetes as well as depression. I understand that work and family pressures are leading to this depression and stress that you are facing. Like the instruction in airplanes before take offs-you need to put your oxygen mask on before you help others in cases of emergency. What are the job and family challenges you are having? it helps to focus one day at a time and to focus on how to feel healthy mentally and physically instead of reducing weight or levels of diabetes. That I mean is that your focus right now should be on what you can do to feel healthy and that is all. So it could be to enjoy your walks as you do them, play with your children (if you have young children) and enjoy it as you do it. The key is to find spaces and activities to do that increase your level of pleasant experiences. When you are able to effectively exercise this first step the other things will slowly fall in place.

Breakdown is a chance for break through. Read stories of great people. Inspiring stories catapult change. Some people work intensely so that their mind is engaged in something productive, meaningful and give a sense of fulfillment. Keep a sentry to watch your thoughts. Politely tell, "Go away" to unwanted thoughts. Reading good books, engaging in hobby helps tide over sour patches of life. Best,

How do I cut down on ciggeret's? Is smoking one ciggeret a day harmful for our health? What can I do to stop this habit?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should not cut down but stop all at once, and yes even one cigarette is harmful for your health.Nicotine gums are just an aid and need not be mandatorily used. You may use nicotine patches if you want any help to curb the physical urge since nicotine is the dependency causing substance in tobacco smoke. 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 gums and 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.

The best way to get rid of it to divert your mind to some constructive practical things rather than been only spiritual. Worshipping god is a good thing, but totally in it will develop such things in your mind. If whole day you work very hard and keep yourself busy, then you will sleep tight at night as your body will get tired. Try this and see if it helps.

I am 21 year old male and b. Tech 3year student. I am very hesitant to speak is strange problem. It's a childhood problem. Please tell me how can will be skip the problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It seems that you are scared to talk to people. The desire is there but the fear is crippling you. You need to meet with a counselor to deal with this fear and learn how to express the feeling as well as to reach out. Are you afraid that you may not speak well, or that your ideas are not that good, or that people will judge you, or that they will find out about how poor you are intellectually, etc? these are unnecessary dialogues you have and they are not true at all. When people are in conversation, we are listening to information and how you present the same. You are very harsh on yourself and have decided, for some reason, that you are not good enough. You may have been reprimanded in childhood for speaking or your parents may have been too strict at home. These could intimidate you when you are to speak in front of people. All these matters must be taken up with the counselor. Start talking to people at home first, particularly children, and slowly grade up to older teens and then to adults, as you build confidence. If you prepare and rehearse the conversation you are likely to have, you will do very well when you actually do it. Now there is no guarantee that whatever you prepared is going to be the exact conversation but since you are prepared most of the conversation will go according to script and the rest will be easy to handle because they will be minor deviations from the main course. You could attend the toastmasters club, and go for conversational skills courses too. Good social practice will eventually see you through. Nothing will happen, if you are passive about this. For your information public speaking is the number one fear of all mankind. Yet, people speak and appear so confident: it is because they use the fear to advantage and prepare themselves well. So you are not alone.

One way to improve erectile dysfunction is to make some simple lifestyle changes. For some men, adopting a healthier lifestyle, such as quitting smoking, exercising regularly, and reducing stress, may be all that is needed to find relief. Regular exercise can improve your health in many ways. Along with improving erectile function, exercise can: Strengthen the heart Build energy levels Lower blood pressure Improve muscle tone and strength Strengthen and build bones Help reduce body fat Reduce Stress Stress is common to everyone. Our bodies are designed to feel stress and react to it. It keeps us alert and ready to avoid danger. But it is not always possible to avoid or change events that may cause stress and it is easy to feel trapped and unable to cope. When stress persists, it can affect the body and illnesses can occur. The key to coping with stress is to identify stressors in your life and learn ways to direct and reduce stress. Follow this for good results : Keep a positive attitude. Believe in yourself. Accept that there are events you cannot control. Be assertive instead of aggressive. "Assert" your feelings, opinions, or beliefs instead of becoming angry, combative, or passive. Learn to relax. Exercise regularly. Your body can fight stress better when it is fit. Eat well-balanced meals. Stop smoking. Limit or avoid use of alcohol and caffeine. Set realistic goals and expectations. Get enough rest and sleep. Your body needs time to recover from stressful events. Don't rely on alcohol or drugs to reduce stress. Learn to use stress management techniques and coping mechanisms, such as deep breathing or guided imagery. Talking with someone about what’s troubling you can have real benefits. You can consult me for me. Also, you can go for allopathy.

In the initial couple of years, the frequency was low and didn't seem to disturb my daily health and my abilities: both physical and mental. However, since last 3 years I have gone through a lot of stress and sleep deprivation which has caused me to masturbate too often. There is no fixed frequency which I could mention.

Dear patient I go through your problem and your complete history. You know the mastrubation has effected not only your sexual as well as physical stamina too. This affects whole body as the time and age progresses. Mastrubation will also make your penis muscles and nerves weak and slow down your daily activity of mind and health.

My friend is a struggling director in the film industry, and has no income. He is having severe anxiety and depression disorder. And he's been suppressing it for a year or more. His family is in a horrible shape to support him for doctor's appointments and medicines. Neither do I have anything to help him. It's getting worse day by day. Every night he feels like as though he is going to die.

There are a lot of social work organizations that help with free counseling and sometimes offer medications as well. If he contacts them he can get their support and seek professional help immediately. Any delay will only worsen his condition and he desperately needs timely help. If you are in a position to extend some financial help especially to meet the psychiatrist's help, it will go a long way. These visits are not so frequent and medication is a must, apart from the counseling. Therapy can be availed from the free counseling services that are surely available in your city. In the meantime please guide him with these guidelines to do the following sincerely because he could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear, you should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were your" she" disappointed in the near past? if the symptoms are due to disappointment, simple counseling will do the trick. Consult a psychologist. Take care.
