He has smoking habit. Smokes 1 or 2 daily. When meeting his friends he smokes a packet nearly 10 on weekend that is one month. How to quit smoking.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear Lybrate User, You may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture DAPHNE INDICA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

Hi lybrate-user, You may be having difficulty in regulating your emotions. Although I can provide you few solutions to manage it well, but its necessary to know the underlying cause of it to eliminate it completely. Consult psychologist for same. When your body experiences intense emotions, you may enter the body’s “fight or flight” mode. This response activates your sympathetic nervous system by sending adrenaline and other chemicals racing through your body, raising your heart rate, making your breathing shallower, and causing your muscles to feel tight and tense. Breathing deeply and evenly will help you feel calmer and will provide much-needed oxygen to your body, helping you relax. Place one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen below your rib cage. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose for a count of 4. Feel your lungs and abdomen expand as you fill them with air. Hold the breath for 1 or 2 seconds, then slowly release the breath through your mouth. Aim for 6-10 deep breaths per minute. If a full 4-count is difficult for you, you can start with a 2-count and work your way up with practice. Just try to make your breaths as deep and even as you can Try progressive muscle relaxation. Progressive muscle relaxation, or PMR, can help you calm down by systematically tensing and releasing your muscles in groups. It’s a good way to relieve stress and tension. PMR can also help you learn to recognize the signs of physical tension in your body If you can, give yourself 15 minutes in a quiet, relaxing environment. If you can’t find this, though, you can do a few PMR techniques even while you sit at your desk. Sit and make yourself comfortable. Loosen any tight clothing. Take deep, cleansing breaths. You can start at your forehead and work your way down, or start at your toes and work your way up. In this example, we’ll start at the toes. Begin by curling your toes as tightly as you can. Hold this tension for 5 seconds, then relax. Enjoy the relaxing sensations for 15 seconds, then move to the next group of muscles. Tighten your calves by pulling your toes toward your face as hard as you can. Hold the tension for 5 seconds, then relax. Again, allow yourself to relax for 15 seconds, then move on. Continue tensing each group of muscles for 5 seconds, then releasing them. Take a 15-second break in between each group, noticing what it feels like when that tension is released. Progress through each of the following groups: toes, feet, thighs, hips and buttocks, stomach, back, shoulders, upper arms, forearms, hands, lips, eyes, forehead. If you don’t have time to tense and relax all the groups, focus on the ones in your face. Relaxing your facial muscles can ease feelings of stress. Studies have even shown that relaxing your muscles and smiling can make you feel happier and calmer. Write down the evidence which supports or contradicts the thought that produced the emotion. Start connecting the dots about why you reacted the way you did. When you begin to think about it, you might realize that since nobody gets along well with this particular boss, he can't afford to actually fire anyone, because the department is too short-staffed. For example, you may have let slip something that you should not have said which angered him, but which it is too late to retract. His reaction at lunch may not be what you originally thought it was. Ask yourself if this thing would matter to you 1 year down the line? Is it worth spending your energy on?

I am 24 years old and I am a chain smoker. What is the best way to leave smoking. Pls give me solution.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. 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.

What is depression? Why do people suffer from it? How can that be identified. Are there any ways to come out of it.
Depression is a psychiatric disorder characterised by persistent sadness of mood, disinterest in work and surroundings along with associated symptoms like sleep problems, inability to experience pleasure in previously pleasurable things, decreased appetite etc present persistently for atleast 15 days. There is no specific cause for depression. But a deficiency and imbalance of certain neurotransmitters in the brain can caused precession. Treatment with antidepressants and counselling can treat depression effectively.

Simply engage mind in better activities like reading, hearing nice talks or music and keeping mind busy in services. Eating vegetarian foods and fruits and drinking cow's milk in night before sleeping also helps.

If the test is negative, it is unlikely that she is pregnancy. You may wait for another week or so and repeat the test. If pain in abdomen continues then you may consult a gynaecologist without delay.

Depressive symptoms only since a month could be due to adjustment issues or a brief depressive phase. Underlying causes like hormonal disturbances, associated stress and anxiety etc also need to be dealt with. However depression like any other illness is completely treatable. Feel free to consult me online or consult a psychiatrist in your vicinity with her details for an appropriate management.

I have severe anxiety issues .i get weird thoughts every time I go through a tough situation. Please help.
Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms. So consult a psychiatrist and get your anxiety treated.

I am 26 year old my memory power is getting low, and nothing remind next days. Please tell me what I should to do?

PGDPC
Psychologist, Pune
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, you say your memory power is getting low, was it higher before? look at yourself and and your life objectively. Accept yourself and develop long term and short term goals for yourself. Your brain records all events happening around you faithfully, all you need to do is to recall objectively. To increase your concentration powers and mental faculties, solve simple puzzles, learn and read new things. Do physical exercises moderately and in your spare time relax and enjoy all that you are going through. Enjoy yourself and all that you do and participate in all activities with focus on the present moment. With regards.
