What will be effect if a person taking tobacco everyday? How does it can be control?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, Best age to stop smoking is before 40 Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality.

Suffering from agoraphobia panic attack anxiety pls help me best treatment and medicine m 23 unmarried boy.

Suffering from agoraphobia panic attack anxiety pls help me best treatment and medicine m 23 unmarried boy.
Hi, Can totally understand your situation, how scary it would be. While, medication part is to be dealt by a psychiatrist I can tell you its psychosocial management being a psychologist. You need a detailed analysis and plan to over come agoraphobia for which you can consult me. As for now Learning more about agoraphobia and its association with panic disorder and panic attacks may help you control your symptoms better. For example, there are techniques you can use during a panic attack to bring your emotions under control. Having more confidence in controlling your emotions may make you more confident in coping with previously uncomfortable situations and environments. These self-help techniques are described below. Stay where you are and try to resist the urge to run to a place of safety during a panic attack. If driving, pull over and park where it is safe to do so. Focus. It's important for you to focus on something non-threatening and visible, such as the time passing on your watch, or items in a supermarket. Remind yourself that the frightening thoughts and sensations are a sign of panic and will eventually pass. Breathe slowly and deeply. Feelings of panic and anxiety can get worse if you breathe too quickly. Try to focus on slow, deep breathing while counting slowly to three on each breath in and out. Challenge your fear. Try to work out what it is you fear and challenge it. You can achieve this by constantly reminding yourself that what you fear isn't real and will pass. Creative visualisation. During a panic attack, try to resist the urge to think negative thoughts such as" disaster" Instead, think of a place or situation that makes you feel peaceful, relaxed or at ease. Once you have this image in your mind, try to focus your attention on it. Don't fight an attack. Trying to fight the symptoms of a panic attack can often make it worse. Instead, reassure yourself by accepting that although it may seem embarrassing, and your symptoms may be difficult to deal with, your attack isn't life-threatening. Making some changes to your lifestyle can also help. For example, ensure that you: Take regular exercise – exercise can relieve stress and tension and improve your mood Eat a healthy diet – a poor diet can make the symptoms of panic and anxiety worse Avoid using drugs and alcohol – they may provide short-term relief but in the long term they can make symptoms worse Avoid drinks containing caffeine, such as tea, coffee or cola –caffeine has a stimulant effect and can make your symptoms worse. You need to practice deep breathing daily for 5-10 minutes. A cognitive behavioral therapy would work best for which we require dialogue. Get back to me for any query. All the best.

Best option for you is invest in interest and aptitude testing from a qualified and trained psychologist. These tests will reveal which fields/jobs your interest lies. Aptitude testing will tell which are the fields/jobs where you have the ability to succeed. In other words, you will get to know your strengths and which jobs are most suitable for you. Knowing your inner strengths, you will never have to depend on what people say about you. The tests will tel you what you are good at. So, you need not bother about people anymore. Based on test results, if you make a career choice, you will be successful. All the best,

Dear Lybrate user Recovering from a long-term relationship can be so challenging and painful. Chances are, this person was not only someone you loved romantically but also someone you called your best friend. He or she was the person you went to for pretty much anything and everything and now all of that has to change. Whether you were ready for it or not you have been thrust into a new phase of your life and when you look back in five years it will be nice to know you handled yourself with dignity and respect. Accept the truth and do yourself a favor and stop following your ex on social media. Stop discussing about her with your friends. Hangout with your friends. Do something and learn something. Let your mind occupied most of the time either with something productive or something you like doing like your hobbies. Your job is being affected and this is a matter of concern. Give yourself some time but also do not let your breakup ruin your life and career. If you waste your time thinking about her then you will regret in the future. Whenever you are haunted by her feelings just think about your future (how will it be like in the future you keep doing this and do not do anything productive) and visualize it and soon you will find yourself filled with motivation and energy to move on and concentrate properly. Make new friends. Get 7-8 hours of sleep and that too a sound sleep on time. Eat healthy food and keep yourself physically healthy. Go for a walk or do exercise. Do yoga or meditation or relaxation exercises. If it still does not work and you are not able to do all this on your own then you will need help. You can contact me for more information and also for a free consultation.

Being Alone vs. Being Lonely

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
Being Alone vs. Being Lonely

There are people who feel lonely but are alone and there are those who choose to be alone but are not necessarily alone, i. E. Surrounded by people. So what make us feel lonely? is it just isolation from social life or one can be lonely in the midst of all social activities? today psychologist Shivani sadhoo answers some of the interesting facts and mind factors behind being alone and being lonely.

First understand, loneliness is a universal human emotion, yet it is both a complex and unique to each individual. It is commonly described as a state of solitude or being alone but in reality, loneliness is a state of mind. This state of mind causes people to feel empty, alone and unwanted. People who are lonely often crave human contact, but their state of mind makes it more difficult to form connections with other people. Loneliness as per psychological definition is not necessarily about staying living physically alone, instead, it is the perception of being alone and isolated that matters the most.

For example, a newly joined office employee, who has difficulty in making friends and making himself/herself noticed, might feel lonely despite being surrounded by hundreds of office mates. Similarly, if a girl or a boy finds it difficult to express his/her pain, fears, feelings through verbal expressions, i. E. By talking, he/she might feel alone among a group of friends who would be all talking about themselves and would consider this person to have no trouble in life.

Loneliness has a wide range of negative effects on both physical and mental health. Some of the health risks associated with loneliness includes:

Generally, it's very difficult to recognize if someone feels lonely and sometimes even the sufferer doesn't recognize for the whole life that he/she was lonely deep inside.

One can cure loneliness:-

  • by first identifying themselves that they suffer from loneliness.
  • by realizing themselves that loneliness is a hazardous condition and they should fix it.
  • if the person suffers from difficulties to express themselves to others, lacks effective communication skills, feels shy and stressed in social gathering then its advisable to take a help from experts like a mental health professional or a psychologist.

I lost my one year due to some issues. Which I can not handel and I feel very depression. How can I get out from it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I lost my one year due to some issues. Which I can not handel and I feel very depression. How can I get out from it.
You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Supplements can not substitute healthy lifestyle and eating habits. Even if you work at night, incorporate some kind of exercise, jogging or yoga in your schedule. Generally, stress is when we are not able to do what you wish to do. Your day can ideally be divided into 3 parts of 8 hours each. 8 hours of sleep, 8 hours of work and you would have atleast 4 hours you can spend on things you want to do. Write down all that you want to finish and check your sleeping hours. When you are working at odd hours, you tend to waste some time feeling - you don't have enough time. Plan and you will be able to accomodate some things in your schedule, if not everything.

Causes And Symptoms Of Balance Disorder!

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Ghaziabad
Causes And Symptoms Of Balance Disorder!

Balance disorders are a combination of physiological factors that can make you feel unsteady or dizzy. While sitting, standing or lying down, you may feel as if you are floating, moving, or spinning and you may feel dizzy and dazed for the time being. This disorder can intervene in your daily activities of life, and can even lead to falls and accidents, which may cause you to end up with fractures and other types of injuries.

What causes balance disorder?

A combination and coordination of many body systems such as muscles, bones, vision, the balancing organ within the ear, heart and nerves help maintain normal balance. Dysfunction of these systems can lead you to encounter balance problems. Balance disorders can be caused by many types of conditions.

Some of the causes of the disorder are:

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV): This occurs due to dislodged or displaced calcium crystals in the inner ear, which help you maintain balance. It is the most commonly found cause of vertigo. A spinning sensation while turning in bed is a common sign.

  1. Migraines: Migraines are a general cause of dizziness. Sensitivity to motion can also be caused by migraines. It can also lead to motion sickness, which is dizziness experienced when traveling in boats, cars or airplanes.
  2. Head injury: A severe concussion can also cause vertigo.
  3. Ramsay Hunt syndrome: Commonly known as zoster otitis, this condition affects the nerves close to the ears. It can be attributed to hearing loss, vertigo and pain in the ear.
  4. Vestibular problems and nerve damage: Damaged nerves in the legs can cause difficulty in movement and locomotion. Abnormalities and dysfunctions in the inner ear can lead to a sensation of dizziness and a heavy head.

How do you know if you have balance disorder?

Some of the characteristic symptoms of this condition include:

- Blurred vision
- Nausea and vomiting
- Diarrhea
- Blood pressure
- Fatigue
- Depression and anxiety
- Psychological disorientation
- Fluctuations in blood pressure and heart rate. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

I am possessive about my Partner but he is not about me so is ds means he does not love me.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

I am possessive about my Partner but he is not about me so is ds means he does not love me.
No. Not at all we all are different as individuals. Feeling possessive is just an expression of ones internal insecurity. If you feel worried or insecure about losing him that in turn makes you more possessive. If he had felt the same he would have been possessive the same way.

What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities feel free revert and we could work together for few weeks to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

You are going to feel isolated like this for some time as one always keeps comparing delhi with bombay. Once you realise that apples cant be compared with oranges, your issue would start resolving. Also in mumbai one has to take an initiative in introducing ourselves to people and then you would surely get the returns.

She is having problem of depression, and she is talking tablet Lam - et 0.5 mg. Does it have any side effects also?
Yes any tablet it has their own side effects. It is better to not take any medicine. In compulsory situation only we go for medicine. It is better to take psychological counselling. It has no side effects. It develops your personal lifestyle management. It improves your level of thinking. It is total personality development. It is better to consult a qualified psychologist at your nearest place. Follow the suggestions of the psychologist very carefully. She will come out of of her status. Do not allow her alone and do not think alone. It is better to share her thoughts and provide good family environment. Be sociable all the time and be happy all the time. Ok all the best.

Sugar levels are too high to be controlled with oral hypoglycaemics only. She should use insulin syringe with small 26 gauge needle or fountain pen injections which cause very minimal pain. Once her levels are normal a trial for oral medication can be given. If she is overweight, her diet needs to be planned strictly otherwise merely increasing insulin or other medicines is never going to bring the things to normal.

Only medicines can not work many times. This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. Want to meet/speak to connect me.

I am 29 year working women. Due to family disturbance I suffered 3 anxiety attacks. What should I do?
Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.
