Hi, you just need to keep yourself busy away from porn and such triggers. Exercise daily for 30 minutes. Use laptop in public. Masturbating will not cause any harm until you are obsessed with it and no you are not suffering from any disease.

Hi there ~ the key to fighting depression is to start with a few small goals and slowly build from there. Draw upon whatever resources you have. You may not have much energy, but you probably have enough to take a short walk around the block or pick up the phone to call a loved one. Spend some time in nature list what you like about yourself read a good book watch a funny movie or tv show take a long, hot bath take care of a few small tasks play with a pet talk to friends or family face-to-face listen to music do something spontaneous

My mind is not relax when I do coding. Always upset and feeling so depressed .why happen to me pls give or answer me.
Coding can be quite boring for a lot of people. It is the money that helps to keep them occupied in the IT industry. However, it may not be all of the reason and you should explore the possibility of depression being there for other events. 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Sir my elder brother is addicted in drinking. Please can you suggest how we can get rid of this?

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
There are many different ways of quitting drinking. First thing to understand is that there is no one magic pill that will cure him. Also, merely confining/ admitting him for few days or even months will not only not help but also aggravate the problem. Mixing medicines in food is also a bad idea as it will worsen existing relationships and is also unethical. Broadly, interventions can be divided into medicine based and non-medicine based. Non-medicine based interventions include counseling and psychotherapy such as MET and RPT which help to enhance will power, prevent relapse, make lifestyle changes and many more. Medicine based interventions can be broadly divided into four categories. The first group of medicines help to decrease the desire to drink. The craving from within is reduced, but not entirely abolished. Second group of medicines are used to control withdrawal symptoms like sleep problems, irritability, anger, tremors, anxiety, fits etc. A third group of medicines are used to treat the alcohol induced damage such as vitamin deficiencies, nerve damage, gastric ulcer, liver problems etc. A fourth group of medicines are occasionally used and are intended to produce a unpleasant 'reaction' if alcohol is taken. Many a time, it is the combination of many of the above measures that works best. Take care!

What Are Anxiety Disorders?

Phd, Mphil, MSc, Bed, BA (Clinical Psychologist and Parent Child Relationship Expert)
Psychologist, Noida
What Are Anxiety Disorders?

Does the fear of the exam get your heart racing? Does a tensed feeling grip you as you are about to make that big presentation to the board? Feeling anxious and worried is a common reaction is such situations. It is, however, different, when anxiety moves to the level of a disorder that debilitates you from living a normal life. 

Types: Different type of anxiety disorders include
a) Generalized anxiety disorder: People suffering from this disorder generally have a persistent fear or worry of everyday matters. Will you manage to get to office on time? Will you be able to make the money you need? Will you be able to get sleep tonight! -All of which are valid thoughts which convert into an anxiety problem if you dwell on them too long and too hard.
b) Phobia: This is the largest category in anxiety disorders characterized by the fear of an object, person or situation. 
c) Panic disorder: The unfortunate part of this disorder is a panic attack that can be triggered by an object of fear or an intense situation which can cause the person to have difficulty in breathing, tremble, shake and often disable them for anything between 10 minutes to a few hours. 
d) Agoraphobia: Want to escape from the room but your feet won't cooperate? That's agoraphobia -a fear linked with panic disorder which makes you feel trapped.
e) Social anxiety disorder: Most of us may have experienced a form of this fear when we had to go on stage for a performance or speaking assignment. When it escalates to become a disorder, the fear manifests itself with physical symptoms and sometimes aggravates to social isolation. 
f) Post traumatic stress disorder: This is the aftermath of being in a traumatic situation like combat, natural disaster, rape and hostage situation. 
g) Other anxiety disorders: These include separation anxiety (from being separated from a person or place), situational anxiety (like claustrophobia that happens when a person is in a situation of tightly crowded places) and Obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD) where a person follows compulsive rituals to get relief from the anxiety. 

Causes
Anxiety disorder is a mental illness. It is not a result of personal weakness, a character flaw, or poor upbringing. Though exact causes are unclear, scientists say that disorders are caused by a combination of factors, including changes in the brain and environmental stress. Drugs, alcohol abuse, certain medical conditions and genetics are also possible triggers for anxiety disorder. 

Symptoms: It mostly includes one or more of symptoms like restlessness, irritability, concentration problems, fatigue, muscle tension and sleep disturbance

Diagnosis:
Anxiety disorders are often 'caught in the act' during a flare up or a high stress situation when the victim is unable to cope with the situation. Standardized screening clinical questionnaires such as the Taylor Manifest Anxiety Scale or the Zung Self-Rating Anxiety Scale can be used to detect anxiety symptoms, and the need for a formal diagnostic assessment of anxiety disorder may be suggested. 

Treatment: It generally includes lifestyle changes, medication and therapy. If you are looking for help for an anxiety disorder, book a private appointment with us.

I am 22 years old I am suffering from some kind of laziness every time what can I do to overcome this?
Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. When you sit and pave way for thinking, the mind does its duty and make you lethargic or lazy. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

Dear, don't worry. You are shy. But you will not be always shy. When you learn from life, when you get experienced, you will change your attitude and change yourself. Always keep it in mind that, human being always change according to circumstances. Therefore no behavior is permanent. You may consult a psychologist for counseling. Take care.

Masters in Clinical Psychology

I am 28 years old boy. Too much depression. How to take it. Any remedy forvthe problem.
Hi, Yes, there are remedies to help you manage depression. Most important thing is Depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. Set goals. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. Exercise. It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people with depression. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. Eat healthy. There is no magic diet that fixes depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough shut-eye, and too little sleep can make depression worse. Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Don't. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can help you maintain a lifestyle that can help counter depression. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. The next time you're feeling terrible about yourself, use logic as a natural depression treatment. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. Consult a psychologist for same. All the best.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Skin tanning usually happens due to melanin deficiency. I am sure you must have consulted a, skin specialist. I am sure they treated you. Worrying and thinking about suicide is of no use. Understand the situation and learn to accept it. Remember those people with deformed face or body parts. You atleast have everything. Be happy. Take care.

Sir I am drinking alcohol one or two times in one month is there any. Problem to my health.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Certainly alcohol has many ill effects. To begin with, it is habit forming and one can easily become dependant on it. It can cause memory problems, liver damage, accidents, passing out (black outs) and not to forget, social as well as monetary problems. Try and curtail your intake or even quit altogether. It is better to stay away from vices.

I have a regular smoker, bt I want to leave it please suggest me how can I do this,

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.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The break from your academic pursuits will have a bearing when you come back to it after some time. I really like that you want to finish what you had begun some time ago. If you have taken an arts combination, it is really very easy to study. Write down short notes while you are preparing and learn those notes only. Later, you will be able to remember them well and memorize them easily. Also keep short duration study times: usually not exceeding 1.5 hours at a time. Then take a break and come back to it immediately after. Do some group-study with anyone else you know who is also doing the same course. Take some tutorials too. Whenever you feel drowsy, do written work. Study a variety of subjects to make learning interesting. Have someone test your knowledge and see how much you have retained, periodically. Eat well, sleep well and exercise well, everyday. June is a long way off actually, and much work can be done between now and then. All the best and I am glad you are finishing your course.

Dear , Your son is just 9. You need to wait and watch. If he is doing everything else reasonably, nothing to worry. If you are worried about learning disability, learning disability of languages is a disability where your son could be fitted if he fails to learn all aspects of languages. Here I don't think so. So wait and watch. He needs to be trained with proper attitude. Take care.

Let her be in an environment where she can find friends and can see and learn naturally. Do not scold do not beat. Be cool , let her feel the necessity to study naturally. The instinct inside her body is not generating. This is how we are built. She may lose 1 year or 2. But do not do anything so that she turns to be a psycho patient. You will lose her for ever.
