There are so many medicines in the market. Allopathic, ayurvedic and e. T. C. But it is behavioural problem. When your mind is strong. You can control your thoughts. The mind status should be stable with the help of psychologist. Mind control it is permanent therapy. Medicine works for some time after that then the same status there is no usage. You are unable use continuously medicine. Then you feel some time alcohol is better than medicine. Short time medicine capability. Where as behaviour therapy is permanent method there is no side effects. It is total life style modification method. It is better to consult a very good psychologist in your area. Ok best of luck.

For good sleep, just try out these simple ways - 1. Stick to a sleep schedule- Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try to limit the difference in your sleep schedule on weeknights and weekends to no more than one hour. Being consistent reinforces your body's sleep-wake cycle. If you don't fall asleep within about 20 minutes, leave your bedroom and do something relaxing. Read or listen to soothing music. Go back to bed when you're tired. Repeat as needed. 2. Pay attention to what you eat and drink - Don't go to bed hungry or stuffed. In particular, avoid heavy or large meals within a couple of hours of bedtime. Your discomfort might keep you up. Nicotine, caffeine and alcohol deserve caution, too. 3. Create a restful environment - Avoid prolonged use of light-emitting screens just before bedtime. Consider using room-darkening shades, earplugs, a fan or other devices to create an environment that suits your needs. Doing calming activities before bedtime, such as taking a bath or using relaxation techniques, might promote better sleep. 4. Limit daytime naps - Long daytime naps can interfere with nighttime sleep. If you choose to nap, limit yourself to up to 30 minutes and avoid doing so late in the day. 5. Include physical activity in your daily routine - Regular physical activity can promote better sleep 6. Manage worries - Try to resolve your worries or concerns before bedtime. Stress management might help. Start with the basics, such as getting organized, setting priorities and delegating tasks. Meditation also can ease anxiety. Identifying and treating any underlying causes can help you get the better sleep you deserve. If above things doesn't help you, then consult us for homeopathic medicines.

You need to understand that like other addiction this can also be overcome. First of all it is a very good decision to quit, there are various methods to quit starting with nicotine replacement therapy to anti craving drugs. Best results are with a combination of counselling with medications. So seek consultation asap.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. These emotions always arise because of irritation, disappointment or events which were negative and not expected. But you should understand, these are common. You cannot change situations or circumstances. But we can always alter our perception and behavior about what is happening. This the core of anger management. I suggest online anger management training. Take care.

Dear user, 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. 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 post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Hello I am 23 Year old male. I used to to chew gutkha but now I want to quit it. I used to chew 20 to 30 packets a day but from last 2 days I only used 2 to 3 packets in a whole day. I do not want to chew that too but one of my friend told me that leaving completely will do side effect is this right? And the other question is that I have some white cuts or only marks on both side in my mouth. But do not have any type of pain or any difficulty in talking or eating. Do I need to worry about that or is it normal? Thank you waiting for your response.

Gutka is a substance of abuse. It is a dry preparation, that consist of betel leaf, areca nut, tobacco, catechu (extract of the acacia catechu tree) & slaked lime, with sweet or savory flavorings. Due to its stimulant activity, gutka is used as a recreational drug. As it is a harmful product & do not have any beneficial effect on the body, you better quit it as early as possible. Now-a-days de-addiction treatments are available for quitting all substances of abuse including gutka. Such treatment includes detoxification & rehabilitation program. Consult a psychiatrist & start your treatment at the earliest. With treatment you can quit the gutka immediately & you will not require the gradual reduction of the quantity of gutka, as advised by your friend. Medical detoxification is the first stage of de addiction treatment, when the addicted person is treated with medicines. The withdrawal symptoms which occur on sudden stopping of an addictive substance are managed through detox treatment. Medical detoxification systematically and safely will withdraw you from the gutka. The next phase is the Rehabilitation program which includes counseling sessions & other behavioral therapies. These sessions have important role in the de addiction process. Counseling sessions will help to enhance your motivation skills to stay sober, build skills to resist gutka use, replace gutka-using activities with constructive and rewarding non gutka-using activities, and improve problem-solving abilities. Behavioral therapy will work on interpersonal relationships and your ability to function effectively in the family and community. Detoxification is usually completed within 7-10 days & can be done both on out patient basis & as in patient. Rehabilitation program usually ranges between 30-90 days. Along with, mentally prepare yourself to stay away from gutka. Following measures will help you to prepare yourself mentally against the substance: oEducate yourself adequately regarding gutka & its ill effects. Acquire the required information by reading books, going through internet or talking to a professional trained in de addiction. OKeep reminding yourself of the benefits you will achieve after quitting gutka: After quitting you will have reduced risk of the many diseases caused by gutka including oral cancer and a variety of other medical conditions like heart attack, respiratory, cardiac depression, hypertension, reproductive health dysfunction etc. Your teeth will be saved from the unpleasant stains. Your mouth will be saved from the bad odor caused by gutka. Any sores or ulcers in your mouth will heal well. You can focus more on your relationships. Taking gutka might have affected your relations if your close ones were against it, or because you were so preoccupied with the substance, your relations suffered. You can participate actively in social gatherings as you will not have to stay away to hide your habit nor have to come out frequently to chew gutka. You will save the money you were wasting on gutka & use them for better purposes. OImagine & create a picture of a beautiful future in your mind of a life without gutka. Imagine how much you will benefit in your new life. In between your beautiful imaginary picture also imagine that you started to take gutka again. Then imagine how one by one the beautiful picture will shatter. Once you become aware of the consequences of relapse, you will also develop fear of relapsing. You will then stay more cautious not to start it again. OCount the first day of your quitting as day of a new start & from that day, live one day at a time. It is helpful if you can relate this day to some important events in your life like your birthday or birthday of someone close, anniversary, day of some achievements etc. On the morning of the second day, tell yourself that you are starting the second day of your substance free life & by night time thank yourself that you stayed substance free whole day & encourage yourself to stay gutka free in coming days too. Celebrate your victory of staying sober on completing 1 week, 2 weeks, then 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, and on completing one year celebrate the first birthday of your sobriety. This will encourage you to stay sober further. OAvoid triggering factors that may tempt you to take gutka. For example if the triggering factor was internal say some stress for which you got inclined to abusing substance, then work on the stress to remove it or take help of a counselor to overcome the stress. If the triggering was external, like some friends persuaded initially & you could not say no, in some specific event or situation you started taking gutka etc, then stay away from those situation. OImmediately after quitting, craving will be intense. But gradually with time it will reduce. So the initial days you have to be very careful. Keep yourself busy & diverted. OThrow away all gutka you have with you. Having them within reach may increase your temptation. You can use alternatives like lozenges or chewing gum. OStart new healthy habits & opt for a healthy lifestyle. OEat healthy diet. OJoin a support group comprising of people who came out of addiction & had undergone the same situation as you. You will get a platform to discuss your queries & together can motivate each other to stay sober & also help others to overcome addiction. Start your effort to quit gutka at the earliest. All the best. Regarding the white marks on your mouth, get yourself examined by a doctor. He will advice you the necessary investigations & give treatment if required.

I have recently started drinking occasionally. After drinking, my face becomes red. I also feel burning sensation in my chest after having a drink. In the very next morning, I also feel soreness in my chest, when I touch it. Do I have low tolerance for alcohol? What to do?

Alcohol causes vasodilatation, that means a kind of accumulation of blood in peripheral blood vessels. That may cause flushing, red face etc. Burning sensation in chest could be due to gastritis i. E. Increased acid production in stomach in response to alcohol.
