Hello. Online gaming addiction is becoming a new public health problem & I perfectly understand your concerns. You may not believe me at this point, but it is a mental illness known as internet addiction & if you search , you will get lots of articles about internet addiction. This is treated by combination of medicines & counselling. For your part, you should block your brothers access to any form of money (physical or net banking, atm etc.) then persuade him to visit a psychiatrist or revert back to me to start medications & counselling. Good luck.

Anxiety can definitely increase the blood pressure. It is quiet normally present in many persons. But if you continue to have these symptoms at all situations then they need treatment. Both drugs and psychotherapy are essential for the treatment. Kindly do relaxation exercises and yoga. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Try to plan yourself and schedule your routine activities. Try to go for a morning walk. Take weekly breaks. If you still feel to have symptoms kindly consult a psychiatrist. Be relaxed stay healthy.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. 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. Take care.

I have bad habit of smoking cigarette from two years and it is becoming more and more. How can avoid this bad habit?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. 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.

Its an unfortunate happening in your life. Its a natural discomfort zone that you have entered into. It would be better if I could talk to you to get to a best prescription. Homeopathy treats such love disappointments very effectively. In my practice, many of such cases start feeling better immediately after the right prescription of homeopathic remedy. But I need to talk to you for a best prescription. However, I can prescribe a very common medicine for such maladies. Please take natrum mur 1m 3 pills each three times within half an hour at the intervals of 10 mins tonight only and then discontinue. Please report in 3 days. Please seek further advice thereafter by making a consult. Please meet your good friends who can help you counsel a bit. Use homeopathy to get rid of such problem without any side effects.

I Am 28 years old and I am dealing with depression and anxiety attacks from last 2-3 yrs. I used to get panic attacks and vomiting sensations , I am afraid of going to new places like party and relatives. I keep over thinking, think in every worst and good situation, facing financial difficulties, not enough support of my parents over me, being married since 1 yr. But wife is supportive and in laws. Afraid of facing situation. What to do, drinks and smokes but not addictive. Body gets tired easily and laziness becomes habit, doesn't like to hang around or get socialize. Like to keep myself locked in room alone and use to think different situations.

That is plenty: the support from your wife and her family. However, it is not advisable to withdraw from people. Since you are taking some medication you must also combine that with some counseling and see the effects of that. Depression and anxiety go together and so I recommend the following measures too: I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately. Please visit these professionals (doctor and counselor) along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you 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.

Hi there ~ not being able to sleep at night may be due to many reasons and as you list out it may be due to excessive anxiety or stress and your poor energy may also related to the anxiety disorder. I hope you consult a psychiatrist to get a right medication for sleep prescribed. There are ways in which you can control or cope with anxiety and thus get your sleep to become normal. Please however consult a psychologist for counseling and a neuropsychiatrist for medications.

Dear, 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. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, the depression you are suffering is related to your emotions and mind (loss or failure, unpleasant incident) and not due to physical cause. You definitely need to undergo Psychotherapy and Counselling, since I believe this must be around 1 to 6 months duration, this can be definitely cured through Psychotherapy and Counselling. So it would be better if you could seek a Professional Psychologist or counsellor at your locality or online to undergo the treatment foŕ the same. If you are interested you can contact me either through text chat or online consultation yes you are most welcome. Take care. Be relaxed.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Yes. Vicks inhaler fumes, if inhaled will provide a good elatedness for those people who are already on the influence of alcohol. There are no scientific provings to second the phenomenon yet. I suggest not to use such a method yet. Take care.

I'm 22yo engineering student. I think I have very low memory as I can't remember and concentrate on my studies I recently came to know about an amazing drug modafinil. Even Indian air force use this drug for concentration. Can I use that drug to enhance my memory?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. You don't need any drug. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active.
