I am studying be final year now I got problem with reading and I do the part time job as purohitya my question is lack of interest in studies what to do now.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Your lack of interest may be due to the fact that you are in the wrong course. It is possible that your academic pursuits may not hold your attention much. If you have done an aptitude test and career guidance counseling you will be able to know whether the chosen disciplines are what suits your natural skills and talents. Please do that immediately and see if you have to change your course. The other consideration is that you may be technically inclined and so you could do some technical training course. And if that appeals to you you can go for regular engineering and do less years, after you finish the technical course.

Sir I have a lots of craving for alcohol in the evening I have given up drinking for around 15 days but still am craving for alcohol. What should I do to totally give up wine.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Craving for wine will continue for many months or years. It will not go away in 15 days. Please continue to fight it out with continuous motivation, find out who and what will help you to distract you from wine. Also find out who and what situation will increase your craving. Tackle them one by one in different ways. Assess yourself how much you succeed in your plan - always a % not total. Work on a daily basis for 12 weeks. Later you can make it on weekly basis for 1 year. Worse comes to worse, you can demand a doctor for anticraving drugs like Acamprosate, Baclofen and Naltrexone for 9-12 months daily. Dose will be decided by the doctor after assessing you.

I have been constantly thinking negative for last 4 to 5 years or say from very young age. I don't know how I formed this habit, I tried to change, read lot of self help books, watched seminars, but nothing changed so much, I want to know the source of my negative thinking because even a 7 to 8 years old kids are very optimistic than me, I was not at all positive during my childhood. I used to get irritate and I was a coward in my childhood and even now I am the same, I want to know whether genes have any effect on thinking How come some people are so optimistic while some like me are pessimistic, Is it a gift of nature. Because kids don't know what thinking is, I want to know whether these thinking ability is genetic or environment My brother and I share same environment but still I am very much negative.

Today, we are discovering a lot of the influence of genes. So, in relation to your question, the genes do have a lot to do with your negativity. Fortunately, it is the environment that can be used to benefit you favorably, even with the influence of the genes. The genetic inheritance is only a predisposition to a condition: it is the exposure we place ourselves into that can either stimulate or suppress the predisposition. Your problem, in seeking solutions in books and seminars, will not necessarily provide the help you need: it is to do with and in and around people that you can work out the solution. For example, being with positive people only will gradually influence you to become optimistic in life. Since you mention this to be a trait from childhood there may be, apart from the genetic influences, some traumatic influences from prenatal days and later, to have a great impact. The character of your family and parents too will have a bearing. This attitude in life will be the cause of your problems and not its effect. You could attend some counseling and do some personal work in any or all of these areas and resolve this, permanently. There is a solution to all problems and your search must be in real earnest, and above all your cooperation is vital to the success of your efforts. Gradually, you will become positive and start enjoying life with all its challenges and live a normal life. If you start a regimen of vigorous exercise (even in a gym), eat well, sleep well, and handle your emotions well, you will feel and act a lot better. Also be healthy and fit in five areas: physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual, to be a complete personality. You will become confident, develop a good self-image, and be optimistic. The reason you are different from your brother is constitutional in nature (and other factors too), even if you had had the same environment.

You must immediately seek help from a counselor. Your gear is creating an obsession and that will gradually lead to anxiety and compulsive behaviors. Before it gets out of control and difficult to deal with seek help earlier, especially about this fear. If the fear is of recent origin, you could perhaps identify it and deal with it. But if it is from a long past, then much work has to be done to sort that out. If medication is required please cooperate with both the therapies to get the best results. Sometimes this kind of nervousness could be genetic too. In the meantime you must do certain things to build your constitution physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again.

Thinking about sex is normal at this age and you can't help it, you are not a sage. Exercise atleast1 hour per day. Stop watching porn if you do. Avoid company of boys who always talk dirty and use abusive language. Spend some quality time with your parents daily. All the best.

What Causes Early Childhood Trauma? + How to Identify this Condition?

Phd, Mphil, MSc, Bed, BA (Clinical Psychologist and Parent Child Relationship Expert)

What Causes Early Childhood Trauma? + How to Identify this Condition?

The problem of early childhood trauma refers to disturbing experiences that take place in children during 0-6 years of age. The traumas that young children experience can be the effects of natural disaster, war or accidents or that of intentional violence like sexual abuse, domestic violence or physical abuse.

What Does this Condition Impact Childhood?

Traumatic events have a significant impact on your child's life and can break his sense of safety. The problem has been linked with a decrease in the size of the brain cortex. This is the part of the brain that controls several complex functions like thinking, consciousness, memory, attention, awareness, and language. The changes that occur as a result can affect your child's IQ as well as his or her ability to control emotions. As a consequence, he or she may harbor feelings of danger and become more afraid or it may manifest in other personality issues which are not very obvious.

How do you identify this condition?

Generally, children who suffer from traumas face problems in regulating their emotions and behaviors.

They may display signs like:

- Fear of new situations
- Being clingy to their parent(s) or somebody close
- Become easily frightened
- Display aggressive and/or impulsive behavior
- Are difficult to comfort
- Display deterioration in behavior and functioning
- Easily forget newly attained developmental skills
- Difficulty in sleeping

Depending on the age during which your child may go through a traumatic event, he or she can exhibit signs relevant to his or her age.

For instance:

Children aged 0-2 years may also display reactions like poor verbal skills, memory problems, excessive temper, experience nightmares, etc.

On the other hand, children aged 3-6 years can face difficulties in learning as well as develop poor skill and learning disabilities, face problems in social interaction, may be unable to trust people and so on.

If this condition remains unattended or unresolved for longer, it may create personality issues and can deeply impact the individual's relationships, or equations in the society, as they grow up and even after they become adults. In fact, many behavioral problems can be traced back to childhood trauma.

I am smoking 6-7 cigarette everyday. How should I control this habit. I tried several time to quit but nothing seems to be change with me. Please suggest me to do some test to know my health issue due to smoke.

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Hello, smoking is one of the easiest & one of the most difficult habits to break because 1. Quitting cigarettes does not cause any immediate harm 2. Cigarettes are so easily available that one does succumbs into temptation of smoking just 1 more before stopping altogether. Regarding your question, easy way is decide a quit date 1 week from now & reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke to half from today. Secondly, you can purchase nicotex/quitsure park & suck type nicotine chewing gums to take care of your cigarette craving & substitute them for cigarettes. In addition, there are medications which help to reduce craving & get rid of smoking addiction. If you need them, get back to me after 1 week for next plan of action. Good luck.

I was smoking more than 3 years but I was scared and stopped smoking for couple of days. Daily morning during wake up I feel like breathless it is because I left smoking suddenly or some other problem?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The breathlessness is just a reaction and the outcome of some wild imagination. You have done very well to quit smoking and it is good that you did not have any symptoms but quit because you did not like it. It only means that you are proactive. Just keep up with the decision and if you find it very difficult meet with a counselor for a few sessions and that will help maintain your resolve.

Dear lybrate-user, stop smoking and alchohol normal human takes oxygen into lungs 15 -20 times per minute (15 - 20 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.
