I smoked cigarettes for one year. My age is 19. I addicted to it. What should I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am really happy to hear that you want to quit this bad habit. The habit can be very difficult 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.

Deal with the pressure that you have mentioned with a counselor and it will make it easier. 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.

Hi I want to discuss this issue with real seriousness that my friend Rene has been suffering for quite a long, long time. It's actually very agonizing when you notice you are different from the others and yet you have to deal with it as you have been suggested by your elders that it will be okay when you are 18. But that okay never happened. Being his childhood friend, he shared everything with me and so I came to know that he has been suffering from micropenis syndrome all throughout his life. His hormonal changes were bit late too. His voice started breaking at 15 years while he started growing beard at late 17. Most importantly his penis never grew after 8 years or nine years. Is there any treatment for this type of medical problems. Now he is 19 and doing engineering and I feel it's high time to see a doctor. I would be highly grateful if you could provide with me some informations regarding this because its really a grave situation for me and my friend. Every one at his age is having girlfriends and he is scared of getting into any type of relationships. Sometimes a person need someone more than a friend but he is too scared and embarrassed with his own self. He have been bullied quite a lot in school. Recently it's hitting him really bad. He feels depressed whenever we, our friends start talking about our lives, our future. It's really hard for him to swim through the awkwardness of his own life. Please look into the matter. I would highly appreciate your views.

Dear lybrate user, thank you for the detailed information. I really appreciate the love and care you have for your friend. I think you both are unnecessarily worried. His voice started breaking at 15 and he started growing beard at the age of 17 - then it is perfectly normal. Some people have early physical changes - at the age of 12 -13 some have late at 16 - 17. His growth will depend on his genes. Do not compare him with you or any of your friends. If at all, look into his family history - enquire about his father, uncles, brothers - at what age did they started showing physical signs of sexual maturity and then you will understand that, probably they all have matured at the same age. And now at the age of 19, if his voice and beard is like any other boy, there is nothing to worry about. Now regarding the micropenis syndrome - you both need to understand that men have penis in different sizes (like women have breasts in different sizes) and you need not worry so much about his small size. Penis size increases automatically on sexual arousal. I will strongly recommend you both to see a sexologist. You both need more sex education which will include human anatomy. Please do not feel shy and please consult a renowned sexologist, who will give you more knowledge about your bodies and sex. Worrying about it all the time, will damage your friend's self confidence. You both consult a sexologist so that you both can gain more knowledge and support each other. All the best.

Getting married is a" life changing" experience. After getting married a boy and a girl enter into a new" role" of" spouse" and both have to shoulder a number of responsibilities. There is loss of freedom as well. All this causes stress if is not handled properly. You might be having different expectations from each other and probably are not able to express yourselves properly. Since, you are hurting yourself when angry, kindly seek help from a counsellor at the earliest. The counsellor will help you in understanding, expressing and managing your anger as well as your marital relationship.

Hi, Do PC muscle exercises. Flexing and strengthening your pubococcygeus (PC) muscle can help you exert more control over ejaculation. (Note that these are also called Kegel exercises, which you might have heard about women doing. The muscle is the same in both sexes.) Locate your PC muscle. Put one or two fingers right behind your testicles. Pretend that you are urinating, then try to stop the flow with a quick muscle contraction. That muscle you just used to stop the flow from the bladder is your PC muscle. Flex the muscle regularly. Try to do 10 to 20 squeezes in a set, 2 or 3 times a day. Do a set whenever you're bored or stationary—like when you're sitting at your desk or in traffic. No one will be able to see that you're doing them. Squeeze your PC muscle when you feel ejaculation coming on. Once the muscle is strong enough, you should be able to hold it off just like stopping flow when urinating. Explain your difficulties in detail for best solution.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Stress and anxiety if remain unresolved for a long time may add up and impair ones performance, work and relationships. Try relaxation exercises like yoga, mediation or deep breathing exercises. If such symptoms remain persistent for more than 2 weeks, it is advisable to consult a psychiatrist for treatment with counselling and medications of required.
