Hi I am smoking last more than 10 year I want to leave this. Kindly advice me

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
It is a good decision to quit smoking. While some smokers successfully quit by going cold turkey, most people do better with a plan to keep themselves on track. A good plan addresses both the short? term challenge of quitting smoking and the long? term challenge of preventing relapse. It should also be tailored to your specific needs and smoking habits. Questions to ask yourself take the time to think of what kind of smoker you are, which moments of your life call for a cigarette, and why. This will help you to identify which tips, techniques or therapies may be most beneficial for you. Do you feel the need to smoke at every meal? are you more of a social smoker? is it a very bad addiction (more than a pack a day)? or would a simple nicotine patch do the job? do you reach for cigarettes when you' re feeling stressed or down? are there certain activities, places, or people you associate with smoking? is your cigarette smoking linked to other addictions, such as alcohol or gambling? are you someone who is open to talking about your addiction with a therapist or counselor? are you interested in getting into a fitness program? start your stop smoking plan with start s = set a quit date. Choose a date within the next 2 weeks, so you have enough time to prepare without losing your motivation to quit. If you mainly smoke at work, quit on the weekend, so you have a few days to adjust to the change. T = tell family, friends, and co-workers that you plan to quit. Let your friends and family in on your plan to quit smoking and tell them you need their support and encouragement to stop. Look for a quit buddy who wants to stop smoking as well. You can help each other get through the rough times. A = anticipate and plan for the challenges you' ll face while quitting. Most people who begin smoking again do so within the first 3 months. You can help yourself make it through by preparing ahead for common challenges, such as nicotine withdrawal and cigarette cravings. R = remove cigarettes and other tobacco products from your home, car, and work. Throw away all of your cigarettes (no emergency pack!), lighters, ashtrays, and matches. Wash your clothes and freshen up anything that smells like smoke. Shampoo your car, clean your drapes and carpet, and steam your furniture. T = talk to your doctor about getting help to quit. Your doctor can prescribe medication to help with withdrawal and suggest other alternatives. If you can' t see a doctor, you can get many products over the counter at your local pharmacy or grocery store, including the nicotine patch, nicotine lozenges, and nicotine gum. There are counselling programs, nicotine replacement therapies and medication to reduce cravings

I am 19 years old. And I am also physically fit but I want a help from you. I am not able to concentrate in my studies. My mind is always moving here and there during studies. Can you please suggest some idea to concentrate.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

My father died of parkinsonism, also one cousin is having it. How sure is I may suffer from it?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Only about 10 percent of Parkinson’s cases have been linked to a genetic cause. Most cases of Parkinson’s are called idiopathic or sporadic, meaning the cause is unknown, and researchers believe onset is due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors.If your father acquired PD after 40ies then probability chances for you acquiring this disease are even less.

Dear, pandas, is an abbreviation for pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections. The term is used to describe a subset of children who have obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd) and/or tic disorders. Pandas is a pediatric disorder. It is possible that adolescents and adults may have immune mediated ocd. According to research reports, adults cannot have pandas. The treatments for children with pandas are the same as if they had other types of ocd or tic disorders. Children with ocd, regardless of whether or not their illness is strep triggered, benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy and/or anti-obsessional medications. Please consult the doctor who diagnosed pandas in you. Take care.

first take tablets after one hour take alcohol. it is not good to take two in one time. it is better to avoid alcohol it is not good for health. weekly once it is preferable. regularly means you may use additional medicine for this attitude. so maintain weekly once. dont take regularly. it is better to mix more water with alcohol. dont take less water. it is better to take with coconut water. take light beer not strong one.dont take non veg food. take light food. snacks are compulsory maintain like that. food is must after alcohol. better to take butter milk before bed. it reduces the severity of the alcohol.dont think too much about the problem. dont sit alone and dont think alone. it is better to take with friends. maintain your dose of administration. sleep more time take good food. relax all the time. better to go movie in alchohol time. be friendly with others. be sociable all the time and be happy all the time. ok all the best.

Self motivation is very imp in quitting smoking. These days few drugs, nicotine patches are available in treating nicotine dependence. Behavioral interventions too play a major role in smoking cessation.

Relax and take it easy. Social adjustments at times becomes difficult specially if you find things r not moving as per your desire or expectation. You might be having your own views on so many things which donot match with others and that is where the conflict starts. For the time being I suggest- whenever you are talking with any family members/ friend/ relative first agree to their views and later on after some time - may be hrs / days you express your opinion after keeping and analysing the others point of view. That will establish a harmonious relationship with others and you will feel like staying with them and enjoy their company.

Dear , panic disorder is due to some underlying anxiety disorder. I am glad that you are able to manage your panic disorder and your underlying anxiety. Medicines are ok but them alone cannot fully help you manage it. Psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise together are also essential. Your body pain and nervousness are sure fire examples that you are unable to manage your anxiety disorder. Please post a private question to me and I will help you manage them. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. This could be the perfect case of paranoid personality disorder. Please do not counter him. Agree with his belief. Accept him as a normal person. Tell him you can understand. Slowly within some days he will trust you and then you can take him to a psychiatrist. Take care.

I am 25 yrs old male and I am not remembering what I am learning. What should I have do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, There are few food which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

How to get peace of mind.
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, I can help you with this. Take care.
