I noticed my hand shiver when I do some work sometime, I am a smoker but only smoke 3 cigratees daily. Is smoking is the reason behind it? Please guide me. Thanks.

Yes, it could be if you have been smoking for a long time especially during your adolescence period. It is not enough to quit smoking, which is in itself an excellent thing, but now you must do something to return your ravaged body, mind, and brain back to a healthy state. Depending on when you quit and how much you have smoked, it will take time for your health to revert to old times. To hasten it you must do some effective things immediately. You must take one day at a time when quitting. 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. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

I'm not having a good married life. Married for 3 years now. Was a Love marriage. But many times feel that I made a hasty decision in choosing my partner. Accepted his proposal in just 2 months. He's good at heart but his temperament is something I can't handle. Makes a big issue out of nothing. I have let gone many times but now can not take it anymore. He's always very serious and we don't have a good sex life as well, because I'm not that much into sex and not adventurous enough as him. Although I love intimacy. Many times I feel I'm a failure and want to end my life. But don't get the guts to do it because my parents faces come in front of my eyes. As a person I have always been jovial, mentally and emotionally strong but changed completely after meeting this person. I have always been egoistic when it comes to asking for help. I never believed that a person should need help of another person like psychologist because we should be able to solve our problems on our own. And here I am asking for help.

Dear lybrate user, 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. Take care.

5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

I am a smoker 10 cigar /day. Now I am trying to quit smoking. May I use Bupron XL150 to quit smoking. presently I am having paroxetine 12.5 with ethiloza beta 0.25 for anxiety.

General Physician,
Bupron also is antidepressant used for stopping smoking also. You may feel over tired and lethargic if both are used. Consult your psychiatrist.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out. Consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Girls give sex for love. Ask him not to force upon the girl. Let him shower love and affection to her, rest will happen naturally and in the way he would like. Even then if the girl is not reciprocating, she can be taken to a psychiatrist to find out if she has hypoactive sexual desire disorder or sexual aversion disorder.

Hi lybrate-user. It appears that you are having panic attacks. It is a common problem and mostly result from misinterpretation of normal bodily symptoms. One would need to understand your symptoms in more details. Like when it started, in what circumstances do you get these symptoms, any symptom in between the attack. Very effective treatment is available for these symptoms. Meet a nearby psychiatrist.

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.

This is rather unfortunate. The least this girl could have done was to inform you before hand and not after four years! You could have also been smart and found out earlier: bu then perhaps you did not have marriage on your mind. Anyway, even if she loves you, she has chosen to favor her family more and that is an unpleasant choice but you will have to accept it. You could perhaps ask her whether your parents could ask for her hand in marriage. If she is reluctant, then there may be more to it and I think you are better off not getting involved any further. You should immediately get rid of all her reminders in the form of gifts, memories, letters, mails, do not frequent all the old haunts you went with her, etc. Generally you must get her out of your system completely. Go out and socialize and enjoy yourself but do not talk ill of her for any reason. You will find a suitable girl because you are still very young, and I hope you are well focused with yoru studies and career. Build that up and you will become very marketable for marital pursuits.

Hi, depression is chronic mental health issue like hypertension and diabetes. If u are on medicine and u are doing well then go with same medicine in appropriate dosing. For symptoms that relapse u mark, write down in ur diary as warning sign and inform other caregiver to give support at the time of crisis. U also try to change ur daily routine activities so that u feel more relax and cheerful

How can I remove the bad thoughts from my mind? since last year I am facing this problem. There is fear of dying. How do I solve it?

M.Sc - Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
What bad thoughts you get? whenever you get such thoughts, change it to positive thoughts. Death is certain in everyone's life. Its already fixed. No one can change it. No need to get afraid of death. Simply thinking about it is useless. Do good things. Help the needy. Engage yourself in creative work. Concentrate on the work you do. There are many things you can do and be happy.

Your mom is suffering from Obsessive-compulsive Disorder or OCD. This can be a crippling disease, if not treated soon. She will need to meet with a counselor and psychiatrist and work with both medication and therapy for any reasonable success. She needs to work with a counselor for some behavior modification program to expose her to the situations that cause obsessions and compulsions to gradually de-condition her. OCD is not a lifelong disorder and will over time reduce in intensity. Therapy hastens this process and together with the medication she can work through it better. It is related to fear and so emotional therapy will go a long way to alleviate symptoms and the underlying causes. She needs to stay committed and remain cooperative right through the treatment. To reduce the frequency of repeated behavior patterns (compulsions) she needs to get rid of the obsessions (repeating thought patterns that are non-productive). She needs to maintain a log of regular activities and keep ticking it off of a log book and refer to the log to verify whether she has done a particular job or not. Over a period of time she can test herself to see if she remembers that she has done a particular task without listing it in the log book. Over time she can make two tasks, and so on. She will be very frustrated about her obsessions and may become irritable over small matters. So be patient and help her in this task fulfillment, and she will do fine soon. The bottom line is that there is fear and she needs to deal with that fear for all things to return to normal. In her case she is obsessing about cleanliness, which is quite common among OCD patients. Here some education and science is required to make her more sensible.

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

It would be great if you could have a dialogue with your husband whenever you two have a light moment. Share him with your discomfort and suggest if you could do the same things in the evening or he can tell you a day before. Sharing your discomfort softly can do a miles in your understanding. Take care.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
All forms of media be it tv, mobile smart phones, video games, movies, internet are forms of visual communications and stimulation. These keep the brain stimulated all the time and provide ready to receive information. The brain after a time starts getting tolerant and needs more of the same for getting same pleasure. It becomes a sort of dependence. If this is creating a problems in functioning and relationships it should definitely be treated under a trained therapist or psychiatrist.
