First of all and very urgently, seek help from a qualified- at least a phd psychologist with experience in psychological testing. Get psychological testing for correct diagnosis of illness. Once, you get the reports, your psychologist will tell you whether it is a mental illness that requires treatment by medicines or some psychological problem. In case of an illness, treatment is given by psychiatrist in the form of medicine. In case of psychological problems, treatment is given by psychologist in the form of counselling and psychotherapy. If the problem is psychological, it will never be cured by medicines. So, first step is correct diagnosis.

Antidepressants are used for treatment of depression. Just like any other medications every antidepressant has some documented side effects which may not occur in every person. Antidepressants are devised to improve depression and for well being of a person and hence are used according to the risk benefit ratio. For sure, depression has much worse and dreadful side effects on human health than antidepressants alone. Hence it would be inappropriate to call them good or bad. So, if you have depression you should go ahead and treat it. Choice of antidepressants should be made according to your clinical profile and should be taken under strict supervision of the treating psychiatrist.

Hello sir I am 28 year old. At present I make my self alcoholic. I want every day alcohol approximately 250 ml. But I know its effect my whole body .and I want to leave it. So please help me. How I will be make a non alcoholic.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each some wi other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap ne for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

I am 23 old 5.11" I have been smoking since 2010 but from last 3-4 months I have been smoking 10 to 12 sticks per day but now am tired of itI m finding it very tough to quitcan you suggest some medicines to cope up with damage done by the ciggerate.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are some medicines to help you with quitting the smoking but only for the initial stages. You will need to meet with a doctor to get that prescription. The habit can be very difficult because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important reason. 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. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. 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 chewing gum or 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Dear , you must be able to differentiate between depression and disappointment or frustration. She could be disappointed over and over again and there will be reason behind it. I suggest telephone counseling to her with me. Please let me know whether she is willing or not. Take care.

You could have both in the form of stress. Stress is a memory buster. Even so you can do the following as meticulously as possible for the best results. You are young and if you implement my suggestions, you will carry good memory far into your future. Additionally there are these left brain exercises which are tremendously useful, if you need them, you will need to contact me on my private domain. But here goes for the other things that can be done with great success. If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So catch a good 8 hours of sleep every day. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. Recently they have discovered that moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts do help. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine.

Alcohol is better avoided in cases of memory loss, since chronic use of alcohol is directly related to symptoms of memory impairment. It is advisable to investigate for deficiencies of vitamins of b complex group to rule out causes of memory loss and depression. Please get back with details of the treatments you took so far along with reports of brain scan done after your accident, so that an appropriate management can be advised.

I am 37 years old, happily married with two kids. I am a chartered account and working in a us based mnc in delhi at a good position. I live in a joint family with my old parents. For some time now, I have been facing a problem that is bothering me big time. I can? t easily focus on something that? s written or remember it. And this has been happening for at least couple of years. For eg I work with numbers day in day out but if you ask me some information (like sales of my company for the last month) it would be extremely difficult to recollect that for me. Another example that I could give which can give you some idea is, if I am reading something, I have to put lot of focus to read it otherwise even the text becomes just an image which I can? t read properly or remember. This doesn? t mean that I can? t see properly or my eyesight is weak but somehow my mind can? t comprehend. I remember everything that I have learnt over the years but I strongly feel that I am not able to add anything to my memory for the past two years. And because I don? t remember things easily when I am interacting with colleagues/seniors, many times I end up in a situation which is embarrassing like when I have to say that let me look up into my computer and get back to you. I am not saying that I need to be a superhero with excellent memory but I wasn? t like this earlier. I am sorry I am not sure if I have able to explain my problem properly but its growing day by day. I have a paunch with waist size of 38, my height is 5? 11? and weight is 90 kgs. I drink twice a week and don? t do any exercise at all.

I am 68 years old and having sound health, my son and daughter are well settled and they are enjoying their life, my wife is quite wise and social lady, well caring tome and home. I remain in private job life long on higher position and good salary. Still I am giving consultancy to different industries and also doing my own share work. I have no worry regarding expenditure. But I always remain doubtful in my mind, always negative thoughts comes in my mind, many dreams are coming in my sleep so I feels tired when I got up. Due to this slowly I am becoming short tempered and causes of disputes between me and wife without any reason.

You are indeed a very gracious man: you have taken total responsibility for troubling your wife without proper reason. Congratulations sir, not many people will admit it like you have done. I doff my hat to you and may your tribe increase. Now for the matter at hand: as we age we become more and more tired and our defenses start to lower further. At this time we become irritable with even trivial matters. Your tolerance will become lower and lower over time. Your disturbed sleep will definitely contribute to the frayed nerves even more. Sound sleep of at least 8 hours is a must for adequate rest for the brain and the body: less than 6 hours is the most significant cause of precipitating nearly 86 diseases! to avoid disturbed dreams you need to sleep as far as possible on your left ear. Eat less of flatulence causing foods at night; mainly pulses and fermented foods. Eat dinner early. If it is possible to reduce the time in your work involvement, it is ideally recommended. Explain all this to your darling wife because her understanding will help both of you. Besides as we age, we do become less secure and fear the slightest of things because we know our limitations now. It may help, if it does not disturb them too much for either your daughter or son to return home to offer a change of scene in the house, periodically. I hope you are also exercising regularly. This is extremely important too.

Masturbation is a problem due to the addiction aspect of it but not the infertility part. The infertility is not the concern anyway with both of your addictions, it is the addiction itself that indicates a very vulnerable personality. Does your wife to be and her family know about the marijuana addiction at all? this is also of big concern. You must tell them and hold up this marriage until you have resolved both the addictions. This is very unfair and deceptive to keep them in the dark. Apart from that, there is concern about the driving factors that have led you to this extent of addiction. For the infertility, you must visit a doctor (sexologist) and check out through an infertility test whether that is of serious concern. In all this, you must act in a responsible manner but being os an addictive person you may not take these measures and certainly not in the right spirit. But to do fair justice to this marriage, everything must be above board and in the open. In spite od this, if the family is willing for you to go through the marriage, then that is a different matter. Personally, I do not support you're going through with this under these circumstances.
