Help your loved ones in quiting smoking through smoking cessation therapy
Tobacco smoke contains a deadly mix of more than 7, 000 chemicals; hundreds are harmful. It is a statistically proven fact that smokers suffer a lot in life.
People who stop smoking greatly reduce their risk for disease and early death. One is never too old to quit.
Smoking is now classified as a disease by many health researchers and sophisticated treatment plans are now available to help people cure the disease of smoking. I have been helping many patients quit smoking through a personalized smoking cessation plan which involves few medications, diet and exercise. Consult privately on lybrate for your own personalized smoking cessation plan.

Hloo I am losing my memory may I know the reason why I can't remember in exams please help. Me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You feel lack of memory because of tension and overload of studies and lack of proper study pattern. Please follow these steps. 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Dear Sridhar. Chewing tobacco can cause moth cancer and lesions. You should consult a dentist or physician to examine your mouth. Your mouth should show the lesions of cancer if it is there. You should quit the habit at the earliest. You may quit it at once or consult a psychologist for deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Hi I am 22 years old first of all I was in seminary frankly I was more worried about my families financial condition I was confused whether to Jon priesthood or not secondly I took too much pressure in my board exams thinking that I am going to stand first place Thirdly I was more afraid to talk with other people like what they will say about me and so on sometimes I was getting jealous of others and getting easily angry When I consult to a psychiatrist I was informed that I am suffering from depression What should I do now.

Dear Lybrate User, You are very young and are not sure about what to do with your life. This is quite natural at your age. It appears that you either have low self confidence or anxiety because of which you hesitate to talk to people. Anger is not bad but what makes you angry and how you react when you are angry is to be looked into. You say that the Psychiatrist has informed you that you are in depression, but it seems that he/she has put you on any medication (you have not mentioned it). In this situation, in my opinion, it would be very helpful if you approach a Counsellor. The Counsellor will help you to understand and manage your anger, will help you to reduce your anxiety. The Counselling process will give you more clarity about life and yourself, hence you will be able to chose what you want to do with your life. The Counsellor also will help you in understanding your depression and may refer you for further assessments. Kindly consult a Counsellor as early as possible. Take care.

I am unmarried female suffering from depression coz my marriage s not getting fixed now I don't want to get married. ...
Usually in India women get married by 24 -28 years. But it is totally an individuals decision and a person should be physically, mentally, financially prepared for marriage and not for the sake of relatives. There are many famous, and not so famous, ordinary people who aren't married and live happily. Marriage is a kind of bond and commitment in which you need to work constantly to keep it alive with its pleasures and pains. So get married only if you wish and not for your relatives taunts and don't regret later. Don't be depressed for this. All the best.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Hi I am 22 years old and I feel very inactive. I cannot concentrate on my work. What could be remedy forthis.

M.Sc - Psychology
Psychologist, Chandigarh
Hi, feeling lethargic and inability to concentrate both point out to the possibility of high levels of non-managed stress. We sometimes get so accustomed to its presence that we don't actively work on reducing it. The first step for you is to look at your lifestyle - is it healthy? eat 4-5 portions of fresh fruits and vegetables and avoid packaged food. Try to sleep around the same time everyday and get 6-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Choose a physical activity that you enjoy and invest 30 minutes everyday in doing it. Engage in social conversations and do things that you enjoy. Also, focus on your thinking habits. Do you often catch yourself to be negative? what is your opinion of self and of others? often negative belief/thought system can lead to dissatisfaction and elevated stress levels. It will also reduce peace and harmony in your life. Practice meditation/yoga or any relaxation technique that you like. Consulting a psychologist will also help you in identifying and managing the causes of your stress. All the best!

For your first query, you apparently know that size does not matter yet you say that everyone wishes to have a large penis! You can't go around fulfilling your wishes just for the sake of it. Anyway, penis size cannot be increased. Sleepiness after intercourse is normal because of the effort and the feeling of fulfillment and tiredness: quite normal. To increase duration try out kegel exercises and if that does not help you could do with some medication. You may also try a second round of intercourse which will take a longer time. You could even explore a third time after sufficient breaks and that will surely delay the ejaculation.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. There could be many problems in life. Many hindrances. All these can be managed and overcome with the help of correct attitude. Even Inn education matter the same is valid. Interest needs to be created. Attitude helps you to like what you are doing. I suggest online counselling and career development. Take care.

I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 are 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. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. 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 junk food.

Yes. Hookah is more injurious than cigarettes. E-hookah maybe less injurious but is not devoid of side-effects. The flavours may not contain tobacco but has traces of it. Also inhaling smoke is certainly bad.
