I am a chain smoker, please advise how I get free from it or reduce it? I really want to leave this.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power 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

I am preparing for medical exam. So I want to know that how can I increase my concentration level and sharpen my memory because I really work hard but I just forget everything at the right time. So please help me to come out of this situation.

Psychologist,
You are going to write an important public exam but let it not overwhelm you so much that you don't take time out for socialising, relaxing and exercising. Because a strong body, mind and emotional state can overcome any difficulties in life including planning for the future. If you devote all your time to studies then you are overloading your brain and body and it will certainly forget information to get rid of information overload. 1. Instead you need to study smart and save on your time and relax, have fun so that the brain gets time to rest and doesn't forget. For eg. You can use highlighter to mark out important portions, summarise the most important points and elaborate mentally, make diagrams, charts etc if you are a visual person, use all your senses to study by adding visual, kinesthetic and auditory cues, teach other students and you will brush up your portions, create and use mnemonics for faster recollection. 2. Eat light food with lean proteins, low carbohydrates, sugars and fats. Eat more of whole grains, fish, chicken, eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid all junk and processed foods as they are loaded with chemicals and have a direct impact on brain functioning. 3. Take out time to exercise regularly and give your brain the oxygen boost that it needs during preps and exams. Aerobics, gym, cycling, walking, yoga. Anything that'll freshen you up. 4. You could have certain ayurvedic brain tonics which enhance memory and it's general functioning. Please see a doctor for this tip. 5. You must catch on your beauty sleep for the brain to rest adequately after a marathon session of studies. Our brain gets tired and needs to rest after a heavy activity to release all the toxins and repair damages. Dreams are a way to remove unhealthy thoughts which is important at this time. 6. Seek counselling if you re mentally and emotionally disturbed. Stress, anxiety and tensions make the brain forget much more than anything else. You willbe able to unload your stress in an unbiased space and learn tips to handle it effectively as well. These are general tips.

Doctor I have problem of stammering. I speak too fast and the other person can't understand what I am saying. When I try to speak slowly then I pronounce one word two or three times. And some times when I want to speak something my voice doesn't come out. I have this problem since childhood. How can I cure this problem? Please help me.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Stammering can be made lesser only and only by Speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, I'd suggest you to visit a Psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

Dear , If you're ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse ?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

How can I get rid of mood swings, anger irritability due to menopause though medicines?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Please check with your gynecologist before trying any of the recommendations mentioned here. Eat a healthy diet: avoid spicy foods, caffeine (in tea, coffee, cola, etc), smoking, and alcohol that may trigger hot flushes. Spicy, hot foods and beverages intensify the hot flashes. Eat a diet that includes foods rich in calcium and vitamin D, drink a pint of milk a day; plus eat 60 g (2 oz) hard cheese, such as Cheddar or Edam, or one pot of yoghurt (125 g), or 60 g of sardines. White bread and calcium-fortified soya milk are also good sources of calcium. The following have been marketed for menopausal symptoms: black cohosh, red clover, dong quai, evening primrose oil, ginseng, soy, and kava. Wearing light-weight clothing, sleeping in a cooler room, and reducing stress may reduce the number of hot flushes. Exercise daily: The best activity is regular sustained aerobic exercise, such as regular swimming or jogging. Do yoga or meditation too. The relaxation techniques of yoga can teach you how to suppress part or all of your body's response to hot rushes. Manage stress: Stress can make menopause symptoms much worse. Include humor and laughter in your life. Laughing is good medicine. Get together with friends that are funny. Watch comedies. These are also very helpful: massage therapy, aromatherapy, and acupuncture. These can help handle most problems of menopause.

I am suffering from hesitation from childhood. Now i'm 25 year old. Any solution then please give me suggestion.?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Understand why you are hesitant. Hesitance stems from uncertainty. Uncertainty is. Well, it's almost guaranteed, for every situation you will ever face. If you're always certain, you're probably wrong, because none of us knows everything. So hesitance is actually a sort of safety or defense mechanism - in the face of uncertainty, almost everyone hesitates a little. 2 Address your fears. A huge factor in hesitation is fear of doing the wrong thing, or making a mistake. There are two main ways to deal with this. One is to imagine that worst case scenario that's really holding you back (like embarrassing one's self--that's a big one for most of us) and saying to yourself" so what" people embarrass themselves all the time; in fact, if you watch popular and charming people, you'll see that they mess up too, but more importantly, they respond gracefully to their own mistakes. They joke around about it (watch - they will say things like" no" as they make an exaggerated attempt to stop the catastrophe), they even make fun of themselves (d'oh! i'm pathetic"), and they immediately accept that they're human, and mistakes happen (" man - I hate when that happens"). They make some silly remark, give a big cheesy smile - and they move on. You can, too. If you make a mistake, it's not the end of the world. Secondly, think of the consequences of inaction. Remember that hesitating means not acting, and not acting has its own consequences. Don't want to talk to that guy because you're worried you'll put your foot in your mouth and ruin your chances with him well, you might, and that's okay - life will go on. Or, you might win him over; you never know! but, if you don't act, you guarantee that nothing will ever happen. How can sparks fly when you won't even come face-to-face with him do you really want to just wait for him to do everything what if he's more paranoid about action than you are? when it's over, would you be happy with how you handled the situation, in retrospect? stop hesitating train yourself to think, then act. Overcoming hesitance does not mean you should just start jumping blindly into situations - that could get you into trouble, or worse, be dangerous. But taking a moment to mentally consider the ramifications of decision a or decision b - and in rare cases, decision c - could spare you problems later. Train yourself to think through first one possibility and then one other - and stop there unless a third possibility is glaringly obvious. Don't allow yourself to go off on tangent after tangent, chasing down every possible eventuality. Give yourself a choice between two actions (or that rare third one), and then decide. Give yourself a time limit. To help you avoid" analysis paralysis" you should give yourself a defined time limit when considering serious actions such as purchasing a home, accepting a job, or quitting one. Instead of grinding over endless possibilities, and then discovering you've now been chewing this over for a week and it's too late to care any more, give yourself a couple of hours to consider accepting a job. Sleep on it before you act on a decision to quit or make an offer on a house. But once you have reached your time limit, take action. Make the decision. If you find that you are hesitant over simple, every day decisions, like asking that pretty girl out, or whether to go to a company party, or even what to have for lunch, try giving yourself just 30 seconds to decide. In this exercise, you must say" yes" at least 50% of the time (in other words, no fair retreating to the safe" non-action" all the time). This will help you to save your" no" for events or decisions where it matters a lot more - or a lot less - what your answer would be. Next time you're deciding what to do and find yourself cursing your hesitance, look at a clock or watch, and start counting down from 30. By the time you reach 1, you must make a positive decision. Example: co-worker" we're having drinks at jojo's tonight - want to join us" you" uhm. I'm not sure. Ummm who all is going" co-worker" everyone from accounting and that pretty new girl. I know you want to meet her" you: (really nervous and hesitant now" wow. I'm not sure" co-worker: (resigned to you just not showing up, as usual" well, okay. Let us know. You're more than welcome to come, though" (starts moving away) the new you" you know what - yes, i'd love to come. I was just thinking about whether I already had something, but it's not important. Thank you for asking me - i'll see you tonight" co-worker: (pleasantly surprised" great! we'll see you then. Uh - her name is emily, just so you know" the new you" ok. See you then. Mmm. Emily" (smiling quietly to yourself) force yourself to do new things. Having new, different experiences helps you learn to cope with new situations, and it builds your self-confidence, which helps you become a more decisive person. Often, hesitance and indecisive behaviours are caused by having lived a sheltered existence, or not having much experience to draw on. Allowing yourself to go to parties or gatherings, or even just going to meetings, conventions, or the movies with different people, broadens your horizons a little bit every time you do it. You hear the stories others tell, and you soon have some stories of your own to tell. As you become more experienced, you will be more certain of what will happen in different circumstances. Being more certain = being less hesitant. Have confidence and faith in yourself. You have some special talent and you need to show it to the world.

My friend loves a girl. She also loved him. But she cheated him and married an another guy. Now he is not disturbing her. But she again disturbs him. He fear so much about that. What should we do. please give me suggestion. Is this better to go for police station.

No. Why call police? The girl does not seem to be a sensible one. You and your friend have been blessed by god that she married elsewhere! just try to think, had she got married to your friend and then had cheated him by going to her previous lover/friend, what life would have been like! strongly suggest, ask your friend not to bother about her any longer and rather concentrate to better his own life in terms of career, family, etc. Let him close all eyes and ears for her and focus on his life. When she sees, no response from his side will go back. You may not be required to do anything else best of luck. Happy diwali.

Dear, you need to learn to focus - more on what you are capable of doing, rather than what you cannot do. You need to develop a routine for yourself - get more exercise, eat properly, have lots of water and read good books. If possible, take some counselling sessions with a good psychologist around your area or one of the psychologists on the lybrate platform.

Doctor, How to improve my memory power I have confusions any time how to clear my problem please answer me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Intend to remember. Remembering well requires that you want to remember. If you have not made a decision to remember what you are reading/studying, you will forget almost immediately. Describe the place where you usually read. (Is it quiet? No TV? No stereo? No talking?) Are you motivated to remember what you read/study? For example, can you give a reason for remembering these ideas: score of the football game directions for "jumping" a dead battery ? when your battery is dead directions for getting to a job interview textbook material for a test Even though you are not interested in the subject you must read about, are you willing to use good reading strategies? Do you preview before you read? Do you ask questions and then read to answer your questions? Don't overload the memory. Seven items is the most our memories can comfortably handle in one bite, but even seven is too much for most people. Your memory prefers to have only three, four, or five things at one time. Therefore, if you need to remember something that has more than four or five items in a group, you will have to break up the group into smaller bites. Understand before you try to remember. If you don't understand something, your memory will have difficulty storing it. Work on understanding before you try to remember. Select the most interesting points. You can't expect to remember everything you read. Select the most important points by looking for answers to questions you have formed. No one can remember everything. If you try to remember every idea, you will probably not remember much of anything. Organize the material to be learned. Your memory works best when the information is organized. Organize first. Use formal or informal outlines or use mapping, and your memory will work for you. You may understand something when you see it, but if your mental filing system isn't working, you may not be able to find the right information when you need it. Relate the ideas to what you already know. Your memory will store new ideas if you relate them to old ideas. Make an association, create a mental picture, or use mnemonic devices to relate unknown information to information you already know. Use mnemonic devices. These memory devices aid memory, but should be simple, clear, and vivid. You remember the unusual, the funny, or both. Rhymes ? This method uses rhyming words to help you remember. Example: "I before E, except after C, or when sounded like A, as in neighbor and weigh." Acronyms ? A word made from the first letters of other words aids memory. Examples: "I. R. Soul" from the 6 strategies for better memory I ? Intend to remember R ? Relate the information S ? Select important ideas O ? Organize the details U ? Understand the ideas L ? Limit the amount "PRELIMINARY" to help police officers remember what steps to follow when called to the scene of a crime P ? Proceed to the scene. R ? Render assistance to the injured. E ? Effect the arrest of the perpetrator. L ? Locate and identify witnesses. I ? Interview complainant and witnesses. M ? Maintain the scene and protect evidence. I ? Interrogate suspects. N ? Note all conditions, events, and remarks. A ? Arrange for collection of evidence. R ? Report the incident fully and accurately. Y ? Yield Responsibility to detectives. Sentences ? Memory sentences are made where the first letters of words in the sentence are the same as the first letters of words that need to be recalled. Examples: "I Remember So Little Unless Organized."- from the first letter of each of the 6 strategies of memory (listed previously). "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally."- for the order of operations in a math problem (parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction). Mnemonic devices are handy when studying for tests, but they should not be used as a substitute for understanding. Test yourself repeatedly. Memorize the material through repeated self-testing. Look at the first item in your notes; then look away and try to repeat it to yourself. After you learn each new item, go back and test yourself on all the previous items. Over learn the material. If you study a subject beyond the time needed for perfect recall, you will increase the length of time that you will remember it. Study before going to bed, but not ON your bed! Study thoroughly the material to be learned. Then go right to sleep without watching a late movie or allowing other activities to interfere with your new learning. Your mind will work to absorb much of the material during the night. In the morning spend a few minutes reviewing to solidly fix the material in your memory.Ask privately if you need help

Hi, thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Phases of preparation like this are stressful to most people. Some people are able to handle while others may not be able to. While most people would experience stress to some extent atleast, some will develop an anxiety or depressive disorder under these circumstances. Superficially at least, it appears that something of this sort is happening with you. I think it may be better for you to seek help because this kind of state of mind will prevent you from properly preparing as well; poor results will further fuel your anxiety and create a vicious cycle. With treatment your anxiety will reduce, you will be able to concentrate and remember better and, even though you will still have the hurdle of exam to clear, it will appear much less intimidating. I hope you get better soon. Take care!

Dear User, In general I could say, feeling low after some one leaves who was attached with you; is obvious thing. Many people feel stressed. As far as I understand, you need to feel relaxed and that is why you are asking for help. In such cases, the thing which is important is your daily living and functioning. If the symptoms are troubling you in any area of your life like personal, social, occupational then you must seek help from psychiatrist in private.

Life is so much more complicated than we want it to be. It's very natural for you to feel vengeful. However, you'll only be hurting yourself because you are wasting your precious emotions on something that is not worth it. Please talk to a psychologist about how you can come to terms with your unfortunate situation.
