Psychiatrist,
This is all stress and worries of life, 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.

Try meditation/deep breathing exercise. Dividing your task into small activites may help. Get checked for adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or mood disorder if things don't improve.

How to quit smoking. please tell me how can I stop smoking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
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. 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.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely.The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Dear , When you get distracting thoughts, please do not fight them. Simply let them pass. When you fight the distracting thoughts and feeling, you are actually energising them. When you get time you can learn vipassana meditation. Or some of the wonderful online meditation techniques which are easy to learn and easy to practice.

Smoking a cigarette is dangerous? Or smoking a weed is dangerous? What will be the side effect if we use these two products? How can we prevent the side effects of these 2 products.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Both are very dangerous. Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong willpower 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, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Dear , all these things can be taken care of after two years. You both be in this relationship and do not reveal it to your family. If they already know, tell them you will not see him again. After completion of studies, after you both get job, you can address the issue and your parents. Till then, concentrate on your studies. Take care.

A relationship is supposed to make you happy. If it becomes a burden, it is not worth carrying out. Although physical intimacy is a part of a healthy relationship, it alone should not be the basis for it to continue. This kind of dependence generally occurs when one has poor self confidence. Value yourself- you are an unique person, who is worthy of respect. A person who approaches you only to fulfill some need , without caring for your feelings is not worthy of your friendship. Love yourself, respect yourself. Indulge in positive thinking, do some yoga or any other form of exercise, listen to music and move ahead in life . Look forward to meeting a person who will value you for what you are.

Have 1 teaspoonful of licorice root powder with water empty stomach in the morning. This is mentioned as a medhya rasayana in Ayurveda i.e. a mind rejuvenator. Add some fresh rose petals in a cup of boiling water. Keep it aside till it is lukewarm. Add ½ teaspoonful of sugar to it and have this twice a day. This is a good drink to uplift mood.

Hi my problem is that I am in a love affair from last 8 year. It was pretty good for first 2 years den afterwards she got admission in mca and got spoiled like her friends. She started speaking lies every now and then and started hiding many things. Last year I came to know that she was talking to a friend of her on regular basis that too after my instruction to not to talk to him since he was taking too much interest in her. But 1 day she forgot her phone in my car where I read that they are still in contact. On my confrontation she told me that she was only helping him due to some problem in his home. Although I couldn't find any message which anything wrong. But since then I have become very insecure because she use to take my guidance in her every decision then how come she took such a big decision without my consent and that too after my restriction to talk to him. Although she says she has never ever thought of any other person in her life. I am getting very insecure now and whenever she talks about her collegue n friends I start doubting. This insecurity is affecting me like hell and bring my morale down quite frequently. Although we love each other but we fight a lot. I am not even able to leave her as the relationship is so old and she love me a lot. But I am scared if later I came to know that she even had a fling then I wont be able to control myself. I don't know what to do as neither I am able to leave her nor accept her totally. Moreover after that incidence I am finding myself unable to trust her and thats why not able to love her or trust her completely. How can I know the truth behind this. I tried many things but dont have any proof. I beg you please help me out of this condition.

Before you realise you seem to suffer from delusion of infidelity. This can be secondary to your own depressive illness and low confidence states. If you really love her let her go free, do what she likes, see happiness in her happiness. If she also loves you, she will always think you and come back to you during times of her realxation and happiness sharing. In the state you are, visit a psychiatrist.

Any way to get rid of alcohol and smoking ?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, (MRCPSYCH-UK)
Psychiatrist,
If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment. The same applies to alcohol dependence disease also.

You cannot avoid going to work altogether. You are definitely under some stress that needs to be investigated by a counselor. So do meet with a counselor and discuss your stress: it probably has to do with fear. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use.

The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach €œspecifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries, says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week Other vegetables: At least one a day Nuts: Five servings a week Berries: Two or more servings a week Beans: At least three servings a week Whole grains: Three or more servings a day Fish: Once a week Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. Wine: One glass a day You avoid: Red meat: Less than four servings a week Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily Cheese: Less than one serving a week Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

I am 50 year old male suffering from depression for last 20 years what to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
I am 50 year old male suffering from depression for last 20 years what to do?
I suspect that you are one of many who have been taking medicines but not working with a counselor in tandem. You need both counseling and medical intervention. The combination is ideal for the cure to be complete. In fact counseling will need to go on for a long time to develop skills and techniques to cope with everyday challenges of your life. If you remain episode-free for three years at least, you can be weaned off of the medication. So I assume that for all of these many years you have been letting the medicine do all the work on your depression and very little effort from your side. This will not do at all. So please start counseling immediately. In the meantime please do the following that can be done all by yourself as you desire: You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, 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 scotching 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 things, 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. If you are young and you can do it with some commitment. The doctor and counselor are there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with them is very critical for your success.
