You must try and try again and again until you succeed. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a 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 on. 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 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 heartbeat 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 chew 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. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

It only feels like it is impossible to quit but if you persevere with some professional support you will wins hands down. When quitting, you must take one day at a time.

Hello, after a breakup i'm unable to come out of it. I'm unable to control my feelings towards him but he is not even...
Having a" break up" in a love relationship is almost like" losing a person forever" your loss is understandable. But if you both have made your minds to say good bye, you will have to give yourself and him both a chance to fulfil your decisions. It is going to take some time before you get back to life again. It seems from your story that you are finding it more difficult to get through it. Though there is no full proof formula fir going through a break up, it advisable that you follow some suggestions. Never stay alone, be with friends that make you laugh and make you happy, avoid friends that weep with you, pursue your hobbies, lure yourself by watching your favourite movies with friends, going on vacations with family etc. Avoid finding refuge in harmful ways of coping like drinking, smoking, crying out aloud, finding temporary partners for a fling etc. That does more harm than good. If you still feel unable to cope up, consult a therapist or a psychiatrist for counselling and help. Take care.

Hello, My age is 19 years. I am the student of B. E. I am suffering from mental problem. I think its an ocd. I always repeat the actions and thoughts. For example- if I have thought of buying a new purse. Then after sometime I will have doubt that did I actually thought of buying a new purse or not. So I again and again repeat that what actually have I thought. And the worst situation is that I always have that sensation that if I will not repeat something bad will happen with me or with my family. So I repeat and repeat. After when I clear that yes the thought was of the purse buying then immediately I should remember god. If god not came in my mind I repeat again until god comes in my mind or my family members. I also have negative thoughts. Bad thoughts. Violent thoughts and images. I am even not able to concentrate on my studies. Please help me what should I do to avoid such things?

Yes, these are the classic symptoms of ocd. You must immediately meet a counselor and a doctor for follow-up treatment. Since you are young the possibilities are immense if you cooperate. Ocd is a fear based reaction and can be quite debilitating if neglected. So you could see where this fear has originated and your parents help and involvement is recommended. They will have an insight as to how and where the fear came about. If you deal with the fear, the ocd which is a symptom of that fear can be dealt with more effectively. In the meantime you can build your constitution and your emotional make up with some regular physical exercises, proper sleep, and a healthy diet. Your emotional fitness can be developed with the counselor.

I do not have any jobs And I am student but am not confident in my study so help me.

General Physician,
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.

I having a smoking habit. How to stop it.

MD-Psychiatry, MBBS, Basic Life Support (B.L.S), Certificate in Forensic Psychology
Psychiatrist,
Hello, smoking is one of the easiest & one of the most difficult habits to break because 1. Quitting cigarettes does not cause any immediate harm 2. Cigarettes are so easily available that one does succumbs into temptation of smoking just 1 more before stopping altogether. Regarding your question, easy way is decide a quit date 1 week from now & reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke to half from today. Secondly, you can purchase nicotex/quitsure park & suck type nicotine chewing gums to take care of your cigarette craving & substitute them for cigarettes. In addition, there are medications which help to reduce craving & get rid of smoking addiction

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. For sure you do not have any psychiatric disorder. Don't worry. Participation in new ventures and being involved in it should be purely based on experience and knowledge. When you acquire knowledge and experience automatically you will be able to start new ventures. Second aspect is your attitude. Keep your attitude positive. Don't let negative thoughts derail your attitude. I suggest online personality development counselling. Feel free to contact me. Take care.

When anxiety comes analyse her situation. In that situation give proper support. Talk some general issues. Maintain good friendly rapport with her. Do not talk unnecessary issues with her. Talk always general matters. Do not tell your personal problems with her. Maintain reservedness with her. Provide good family environment. Treat to her as a friend. You can only helpful to come out of this problem. Better to her morning walking, marketing or evening walk. Go both of them temples or movies or parks. Better to give the most friendly environment. Listen patiently with her personal problems. Create you are the best friend of herself. Do some work above mentioned manner. Better to practice yoga and meditation. Do not use any medication for this problem. Do not allow her alone. Be share all her personal feelings and problems very patiently. If it is not possible to yourself. Then in that case it is better to consult qualified psychologist in hyderabad. Be sociable all the time and be friendly all the time. Ok all the best.

What you are experiencing is very common after a profound loss of life. The feeling that your gm is still present around will last for a few days or weeks. You will get over this feeling. No there are no souls or ghosts. It shows that you loved her very much and are missing her.

Psychiatrist,
Hello, thanks for the query. Forgetfulness or memory lapses is a sign of stress or anxiety which can occur due to variety of reasons like improper lifestyles, addiction, mental illness like depression etc. Here I am suggesting few simple tips & tricks which you should do for next 10 days. I hope they will work for you like they have worked for many of my patients. 1. Sleep at least 7 consecutive hours at night 2. Do 30 minutes of rope skipping or brisk walking daily 3. Do at least 15 minutes of pranayama or meditation daily 4. Avoid smoking, alcohol & spicy foods at night 5. Study in this format, 30 minutes study followed by 10 minutes break in which you have to walk around or do stationary cycling. Get back to me after 10 days for next action plan. Good luck.

I am 18year old guy. And now a days I habe lost interest in studies. Whenever I sit for studies I am unable to concentrate for a single minute. What to do. please help me plz.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you have lost interest in your studies then may be you are in the wrong course. It is obvious that you are not interested in your studies because it may not be suitable to your aptitude. Please meet with a career guidance counselor and do some tests that will also determine what your natural skills are and then choose an appropriate career and course. It may also be that you have studied these topics already right through the year and find it very boring to do it all over again. Perhaps you are not exercising enough everyday! Look into all of these matters and deal with it in an appropriate fashion. In terms of concentration here are a few guidelines: 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 or coconut 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 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 you and the family go for counseling too. 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. 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.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.
