My son age is 37 years he is addicted for alcohol what should i do to get rid his habit ?
Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. The best method is always using your will power to quit substance abuse. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, There must be a compelling reason you are irritated. Please introspect on that, try to make a list. Strike off the items which out of your control. Now you have a reason to feel irritated, then introspect how to change the perspective to reduce the instance. Ponder, how this can replace being positive and happy.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
Avantika is a mother of two kids. Her day starts with preparing boxes for her husband and kids. After finishing work at home, she goes to buy vegetables. She then comes home and pays a few bills online. She then irons and folds the clothes. She also has an online business going on for her which she has to take care. She calls her husband to ask whether he could get the clothes which she gave for dry wash at the place that falls on his way home. He immediately replied “I have no time for all this stuff. What do you do at home all day. Can’t you go and get it by yourself?”. Avantika became silent and the next day she went and got them herself.

Sharing work equally between spouses is certainly difficult.

The household works could range across

Household maintenance.
Household chores – preparing food, cleaning etc.
Childcare work – bathing, feeding, etc.
Women spend more time in household chores and childcare compared to men. How can one maintain balance at home when the load increases on the woman and how can she manage the stress arising out of it?


Do not be silent and overburden yourself.
If you are silently taking all the load by yourself, your spouse would never realise the quantum of your work.
In the above example, Avantika could have told her husband “Oh yes, I could have got it myself but I have to pick up kids from school and I can’t leave them in the evening as this shop is far away. Your suit is there in it and you need it for the meeting tomorrow, so I asked you to get it.” Being silent will never make the husband realise the importance of the work.
Make a list of the household works.
Against the list, write down the name of the spouse doing the work. The list could be an eyeopener for a few who do no help at all.
Do not discriminate work.
For example, working at office is no bigger work than cooking food at home. Money is not a measure for the quality of work (Refer this article: Stay-At-Home Moms)
Share work with respect to your child.
If the husband is not enthusiastic to share housework even after discussions, at least ask him to play with the child or take him out in the evening after he comes home, instead of doing office work or watching tv, etc.
Always remember rearing a child is not the sole responsibility of the mother.
If living in a joint family and in-laws do not appreciate their son to be sharing household work, then what?
Realise that peace is very important at home and at the in-laws age, it is difficult to make them realise that times have changed.
What you can do is make changes in the kind/ variety of works for the husband
Example – If they have problem with their son making breakfast in the morning, ask your husband to water the plants or dress up the child for school.
Example – If they have problem with their son getting vegetables, ask him to pay the bills every month instead of you paying them.
Do not nag if the husband is not doing work properly.
For example if you ask the husband to fold clothes and he has not done them properly, do not expect him to do it as you do. If you have to reduce your work, let go off some perfectionism.
Listen to music as your work.
Eat well and do not skip your meals just because you have more work.
Work can wait but your body/stomach can not.
Allot a time slot only for yourself.
It could be going to a parlour, temple, aerobics, shopping, talking to a friend etc.
This time, daily should be only for yourself. It could be a one hour slot or more.
Husbands, if you have read till here, this one is for you: Realise that every woman is different and has a capacity of her own.
Never compare your wife with others.
Never expect her to do all the works that your mother used to do.
Nothing comes easily in life. One needs to work hard for it and also realise the people who are working hard for us. Do not take them for granted and respect and share work.

Dear lybrate-user, Your wife had other medical problems apart from Schizophrenia. She is on medications for Schizophrenia also. All medicines have side effects on other systems of the body. One has to weigh the benefit vs side effect. Your doctor who has been treating her is the best person to assess all these. Lurasidone being a recent medicine may have better bet now. But it is only expected - may not be in your wife since the psychiatrists don't have much personal experience- because it is a new tablet. However you need to consult a physician also side by side. These symptoms may be due to thyroid imbalance. I don't know your wife's age. May be she is menopausal needing hormonal change.

If she is engaged to someone else, she is taken, period. You cannot force yourself on her, and neither is that type of relationship worth it. I don't even know if you have spoken to her about your feelings. If you have not, and you are still feeling so strongly for her, you may have a lot of vulnerability and this is not a desirable trait in a boy for any girl's attraction. You may have some problem with relating with members of the opposite sex for various reasons. I suggest that you meet with a counselor and seek some help in this regard. When we are in a relationship, the other person must want to be in the relationship too. Now it appears that you are caught hook, line, and sinker into her and are finding it difficult to come out. The thing to do is to distract yourself by attending some personality development courses, conversational courses and definitely attend some counseling. You must learn to respect women and their choices and leave it if the person does not feel like relating to you. At your age, you must focus on your studies and make yourself 'marketable' by developing a good career.

I have been smoking from 3 years and daily 5 to 6 cigars. Will I get cancer? Please advise.

Psychiatrist, Delhi
This are harms of smoking --- Smoking is a huge risk for lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, accounting for more than 75 percent of all deaths from these disorders. Smoking doubles the risk for cardiovascular disease deaths, but, because this disease is more prevalent, it accounts for as many smoking deaths as cancer and lung disease. The third major cause of tobacco-related mortality is chronic obstructive lung disease. Other common smoking-related diseases include low-birth-weight offspring, perinatal complications, other cancers (e.g., throat, bladder, and pancreas), and ulcers. Second-hand smoke increases the risk of cancer and heart disease in spouses and the incidence of respiratory and ear problems in children. The tar in cigarette smoke is responsible for the cancers. Irritants and ciliotoxins appear to be responsible for lung diseases. Carbon monoxide and clotting factors appear to be the most likely causes of cardiovascular disease. The role of nicotine in cardiovascular disease appears to be much smaller than previously thought, and how many perinatal problems (including sudden infant death syndrome) are caused by carbon monoxide or by nicotine is debatable. Smokeless tobacco, pipes, and cigars cause oral cancers, especially when accompanied by heavy alcohol use.

I am feeling quite sensitive about my health from quite some time. This all happened due to anxiety disorder which I suffered from 6 months back and I am doing every possible thing to overcome it. I underwent various checkups ranging from Cardiology to anxiety. However each and every report was fine, and at end of diagnosis I was given etizola by my psychiatrist. After taking this medicine for almost two months regularly I found no pressure in my chest and sensitivity. Everything which gave me sleeplessness vanished off. But I left the medicine in midway and almost after a month the all things like chest pressure, chest pinching returned back. But I have once again started to take medicines and they are relieving me. But I am feeling a slight pain in my wrist and forearm of lEFT side. Please tell me do this all happen due to anxiety or I has to undergo any further checkups All ecgs, digital xray of chest, blood tests etc were good which I underwent 5 months .please tell me is it necessary to have these things done once again.

You seem to be suffering most likely from illness anxiety disorder, wherein their will be extreme sensitivity to minor symptoms and interpretation of these towards a serious illness. It has to be treated by anxiolytics as well as psychotherapy (counselling). Ask your psychiatrist for CBT (cognitive behavior therapy), or ask him to refer to a clinical psychologist for the same. All the best.

You have to take your father for rehabilitation. You have to keep patience and give strength and support to your father. In rehabilitation centres they will care for all about medication, health and basic body needs like food, nutrition etc. Be positive and prepare him for there.
