Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine 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 smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

Mr. lybrate-user,my first advice to you is to follow Dr. Abdul kalam sirs words" Do your work, love your family and not the other way round" Well family, friends and other social relationships can help you during tough times. Hardworking and job are very essential but not at the cost of your family relationships. Finally it is just one life mate" just love it, enjoy it and live it" Regarding what is your problem "trying to be very sincere to your job and avoiding family is your problem" Live your life the other way. Be happy.

Record on a notebook in what situations, with whom, why you get angry and write down/list out the other possible ways of dealing with such conditions. You can go for a brisk walk during that time and at the most hit repeatedly a pillow assuming that you are hitting the person you are angry with. Learn and regularly practice pranayama which can soothen your sympathetic nervous system arousal that responsible for your prolonged anger.

Dear, the best way to stop smoking is to stop it outrightly and immediately. To manage nicotine craving you can exercise, use chewing gums or nicotine patches etc. Please post a private question to me with all the details. I think you need mobile based counseling.

Dear, that is really nice. I would say you are blessed. You are able to continuously read for 5 hours or so. But you must also understand and be aware of surroundings. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ?cross addictions? i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the wife and whoever else?s support you can get and act on it fast.

Your senior has also worked with you for 20 years and knows you well for these many years. If he is taking away jobs but not giving you any in return, then maybe you have not been performing satisfactorily. Today there are a lot of youngsters ready to do more and for less salary. This therefore threatens the senior people who have put in many years of service. Although experience is very useful, if you are replaceable by others for less, then your job is most likely threatened. So you should either brush up and perform better or learn something new to favor your job. In today?s world there is a lot happening in the work arena and new updates are happening quite frequently. You may also talk to this senior and find out what is happening to your jobs and why is he doing what he is doing. Then he will know that you are aware and he will have to give you reasonable answers and be careful around you too. You don?t have to go mad depending up on your job and skill set. If you are in demand job wise you need not worry too much.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. The semen which is ejaculated during masturbation is protein in nature. So over masturbation may lead to deplenishment of the protein content in your body. Protein is needed for muscular growth. So loss of protein is not advisable for any human being.
