Do a deep breathing exercise. Deep breathing can help you relax and reduce any stress in your body, including your head. Take slow, even breaths and try to relax. Close your eyes and take several deep breaths. Exhale slowly, relaxing any areas in your body that feel tight. Picture a beautiful scene, like a sandy beach, a bright sunny garden, or a country road. Drop your chin toward your chest. Slowly rotate your head in a half circle from side to side. Take another deep breath and exhale slowly. Continue picturing the beautiful scene in your head. Repeat this exercise until you are in a state of relaxation.

Dear, Things are never completely emotional or completely practical. We always carry emotions even if when we think that the decision is practical. So trust your emotions. If you feel not supported and loved by your partner, you can choose to be separate and more happy than present. But if you feel that things can be improved, you can take professional help from a Psychologist. Counselling will help you to take a firm stable decision.

You should try yoga. And have a walk after dinner. Take milk at night. And go sleep after that. Don't engage your self in any work becoz your not getting d sleep. Just switch off d lites and listen slow music of memory. It will definitely help u. Even will take some time but you will succeed. All d best.

Try this for quit smoking

Try this for quit smoking

Simple things can do the trick. For example, you always walk in a hurry. Start walking slowly. You will have to be alert; the moment you lose alertness you will start again in a hurried way. These are small devices: walk slowly -- because to walk slowly you will have to remain conscious. Once you lose consciousness, immediately the old habit will grab you and you will be in a hurry.

If you smoke cigarettes, make it a very slow process, so slow that it becomes de-automatized. Otherwise, people are not smoking cigarettes -- cigarettes are smoking people! they are not conscious of what they are doing. In a very unconscious way they put their hands into their pockets, take out the packet, the cigarette and the matchbox. They are going through all these motions but they are not alert. They may be thinking a thousand and one things. In fact, when they are more unconscious they tend to smoke more. When they are more in anxiety, tension. Worried, they tend to smoke more; that helps them to keep a face as if they are relaxed.

Make it a slow process. Take the cigarette packet out of your pocket as slowly as possible, as consciously as possible. Slowing down the processes is very helpful. Then hold the packet in your hand, look at it, smell it, feel its texture. Then open it very slowly, as if you have all the time in the world. Then take a cigarette out, look at the cigarette from all sides. Then put it in your mouth. Wait! then take the matchbox -- again go through those same slow movements. Then start smoking so slowly. Take the smoke in very slowly, let it out very slowly.

And you will be surprised: if you were smoking twenty-four cigarettes per day you will be smoking only six at the most; it will be reduced to one-fourth. And slowly slowly, only two, one, and one day suddenly you will find the whole thing so stupid! still you can go on carrying the cigarette packet in your pocket for a few days, just in case -- but it is finished, de-automatized.

This is one of buddha's great contributions to the psychology of man: the process of de-automatization, slowing down everything.

Buddha used to say to his disciples" walk as slowly as possible, eat as slowly as possible. Chew each bite forty times and go on counting inside: one, two, three, four, five -- forty times. When the food is no longer solid, it is almost liquid" he used to say" don't eat, but drink" that means make it so liquid that you don't eat it, you have to drink it. And he helped thousands of people to become conscious.

You are unconscious, although you believe you are conscious. That is like seeing a dream in which you think you are walking in the marketplace. You are awake in your dream, but your awakenness in a dream is only part of the dream -- you are unconscious.

It hurts to accept that" I am unconscious" but the first act of being conscious is to accept that" I am unconscious" the very acceptance triggers a process in you.

How I quit my tobacco habit?

You have certainly made a good decision and you can go about it in the following manner. The habit can be very difficult to halt 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 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. 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 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.

You can use nicotine gum to supplement nicotine. Nicotex/ nicorrette/ nicogum are available over the counter. If it doesnot help, seek psychiatric consultation.

You are programming yourself to get disturbed by fearing something that can easily be checked medically. Go and see a doctor and confirm for yourself whether you are having a heart problem. It is true, however, that you can give yourself a heart problem by mere suggestion and belief that you have one. Your stress may be causing all the gastric problem too. A gastric problem can sometimes feel like a heart attack. Apart from that you must keep yourself physically fit by regular aerobic exercise, get adequate rest, eat healthily, and be emotionally stable. If you need any help for this you should meet with a cousnelor and get the support and understanding that will go a long way to alliviate your problems, once and for all.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The duty of your mind is to think. The mind will continue thinking unless you provide it some creative task. The continuous thinking could always wander into negative territories. Therefore, to avoid negative thinking, you need to be creative. I suggest physical exercises, activities, entertainment, hobbies etc with which you can always keep your mind" on-task" this will reduce stress and you will be active in a couple of weeks. Take care.

Variety is the spice of life. All of us tend to get bored by our routines and therefore we have the concept of a weekly off and vacation. To avoid getting bored of things , do everything in moderation . Take short breaks in between eg exercise 5 days a week, or change the form of exercise - gym for 3 days, go to the park on the other 3 days and take an off on one day . Likewise for working for your dream, set monthly ,weekly and daily targets . Reward yourself whenever you are able to achieve your target . Take a break for a couple of days . You don't have to be productive 24X7.

Excellent decision but would be willing to at least admit yourself into a hospital and go through detoxification for less than two weeks? If not you will need to admit yourself into a rehabilitation for at least 6 weeks. This type of treatment is ideal because it takes you away from the influences of people and circumstances that you have gotten conditioned to and will make it easier in a different geographical location. When you come out of the center you must continue with addiction counseling for three years at least before being free of the enslavement. You will also need to attend NA meetings regularly and get a lot of support from other users who are also recovering. You will need to make some lifestyle changes and work on the stress that is normally the reason most youngsters get addicted to codeine. There is also the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factors, and the script issue that has to be worked upon with the counselor. You will need to start regular vigorous exercise, sleep well, and start on a healthy diet. You must follow a tight time schedule with interesting and productive activities. The counselor will also teach you new ways of finding joy without the use of chemicals. You should socialize with people, join new groups, attend conferences, meetings, seminars etc. to be involved with other important activities in your neighborhood. You will need to go for a thorough medical checkup and determine that there was no serious damage to your body because of the abuse.

Dear user due to work pressure and busy life schedule many youths are facing this type of problem. Because of your irregular sleeping cycle you are not feeling well. Try to sleep before 10-11 pm and sleep for 7-8 hours lie down at 10-11 pm and read some book don't consume tea coffee at sleeping time after 4-5 days your condition will improve. Consult any psychologist. Take care.
