Im 20 and im suffering from hand shaking from few days im worried. I drink alcohol daily. Is it related to it.
Yes, it is related if your consumption is heavy. You must quit immediately. If you smoke too, the handshaking would become even more pronounced. It does not matter when you feel like drinking, as long as you need your drink. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. 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 family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

Lavender oil are supplements and do not cure the basic depression. You can use them if you want, but do not stop the primary medications given by the psychiatrist. All the best.

Hi. Thank you for sharing your problems. The symptoms you have mentioned point towards a psychiatric illness. Feeling low is normal, but as it is pervasive and persistent and associated with suicidal thoughts, I would advise you to seek immediate psychiatric consultation. With treatment (Medicines/Counselling), you should get better. The treatment has very good results. Also I would advise you to discuss your problems with someone close in your family/friends and also seek their help. Regards.

Nocturnal Emissionis defined as the involuntary ejaculation of semen during a night without sexual intercourse allied with sexual dreams. Furthermore, nocturnal emission is commonly known as "Nightfall" or "Wet dream" Nightfall or nocturnal emissions are simply a reaction of reproductive system to chuck out the excessively produced fluid in it and male’s reproductive organ ejaculates this excess fluid when he is sleeping. Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat night emission but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several remedies are available to treat night emission that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensations and modalities of the complaints. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects.

Dear lybrate user Rohit first stop blaming yourself that you always thinks about sexual activity, using too much phone ,not concentrating on studies,you don't have good friends ,every one hates you.at your age more than 95% youngsters do the same thing infact if you don't do this things then its the matter for concern.try some deep breathing exercise ,and every day for 10 minutes sit in the posture of yogi close your eyes and say ommmmm this will increase your concentrating power trust me it will help.if you need my help then i am always ready.

Your feelings of frustration, depression and feelings of life being worthless all suggest a depressive state of mind, a kind of agitated depressive disorder. It is but natural to feel helpless and have a feeling that no one would ever be able to help you out in depression. However it is my humble advise that you consult a good psychiatrist and start medications and counselling. You would certainly feel better. Take care.
