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. Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father? s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the adult children of alcoholics syndrome (acoas), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. They will need the family? s written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else? s support you can get and act on it fast.

Recommend - don't hurt yourself it's not a good option for you. Try to aviod unacceptable circumstances, listening songs, try to do some innovative. Yoga and meditation is good for you. Etc hetal, you immediately need some counselling sessions with homoeopathic medication it's help to provide permanent cure.

There are three types of memmory. Sensory memory, short term memory and long term memory. Memory is based on perception and recollection. From the given info, there is nothing to worry about amnesia related problems. Better and effective learning methods improve your memory and recollection. I think two or more counseling sessions should be good for you. Please let me know if you are willing for telephone counseling sessions. Take care.

I am a male and having problems in depression. I cannot talk much when I am depressed. Everytime I am simply thinking.
alone thinking is a dangerous thing. it increases depressive thoughts. when you have problems it is beter to express with your friends and family members. man is a social animal. we can not do alone. every day we express our internal feelings with others. no one is not intellectual. every one has their own problems. but some body have their capacity to maintain reservedness. solve their own problems with out inform others. but some body like you sensitive personalities. do not have capacity to solve your own problems and feelings. in that case better to take the help of friends and family members. alone thinking no use. it also disturbs your internal status. so better to make friendly relations with others. choose one good friend share all your feelings regularly. dont sit alone in home. better to spend most of the time with busy schedule. better to share others. dont think i am depressed. if you feel you are under depression. if you not feel there is no chance of depression. so be optimistic all the time. be positive. be feel always comfortable. be enjoy the every movement of life. ok all the best.

Most commonly, diagnoses of acute painful spinal conditions are nonspecific, such as neck or back strain, although injuries may affect any of several pain-sensitive structures, which include the disk, facet joints, spinal musculature, and ligamentous support. The origin of chronic back pain is often assumed to be degenerative conditions of the spine; however, controlled studies have indicated that any correlation between clinical symptoms and radiological signs of degeneration is minimal or nonexistent. Inflammatory arthropathy, metabolic bone conditions, and fibromyalgia are cited in others as the cause of chronic spine-related pain conditions. Homoeopathy offers quick, safe and permanent cure for any such conditions, you have to give your detailed case history to select correct medicine for you. Also change your lifestyle to a healthy one, go for regular exercise, eat more vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water, try to relax for few minutes between work.

I suggest you get a vitamin b12 level test done. Vegetarians are often deficient in this vitamin which directly influences memory. If that is normal, then we might want to evaluate you or anxiety disorder. I assume that thyroid functions and hemoglobin have been done earlier and are normal.

If you look into past relationshi[ps it is only to reminiscence about the good times and for any lessons to be learned. Beyond that, it is all history. You must focus in the present and this moment a gift. If you have an idle mind, it will become fertile ground to brood and think negatively. You must become occupied and get involved in things that matter right now. In fact, there is so much happening that there is less time to complete all the tasks. Unless you get into these things you are likely to waste away. You may be sensitive to rejection and getting caught up in all the past rejections that have affected you. Close the​ past and have goals in life but focus in the present.

I want to leave smoking how is it possible?

You don't mention your age or how long and how much you have been smoking. Any way when quitting, you must take one day at a time. 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 in 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 heart beat 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 chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or 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.

Hello, Thanks for writing to us. I have read your case and can understand your situation. There is systematic program for de addiction which involves detoxification and then rehabilitation. This requires you to be admitted under surveillance of doctor / trained professional. First 3 to 4 days, you would be detoxified in which you would be started with I V fluids, multivitamins (B1 mainly) and benzodiazepines. This would correct electrolyte disturbances, replete vitamin deficiencies and would avoid harmful withdrawal symptoms. After this you would be started with anti craving drugs like Acamprosate, Naltrexone, Topiramate, etc to decrease the craving for alcohol. This would be then continued for 4 to 5 months to make sure you don't get into trap of alcohol use again. Hope I could solve your query. Feel free to write back. Regards.

YOu can try meditation and yoga . If needed you need antidepressants .5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal.

If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session

i'm currently diagnosed with adhd and believe it, but feel as though I diagnosed myself and not my psychariatrist. Just want a second opinion. I'm messy, have trouble with working memory, have motivation issues, get headaches somewhat frequently, have trouble falling asleep, feel numb/upset and lonely, and more similar things. At the same time, i'm very intelligent and often'aware' of what i'm doing wrong, but there's a disconnect to being able to change it. What can I do to help myself?

Adhd is one of the most loosely used terms by psychologists and psychiatrists. It can really play havoc with one's self esteem. Even if you do have adhd, it can be overcome with a little bit of behavior therapy. Please stop labeling yourself and consult a psychologist so that you can come up with a plan that suits you.

Hello lybrate-user, Post partum blues are common. During that depressive phase, you feel everything has vanished. You also feel that your husband has changed. He has to change, because he is not only a lover or a husband, but also a father. Post partum blues are common in fathers also. Please consult a psychiatrist or ask your obstetrician to refer. It is a completely treatable disorder with antidepressant tablets and counselling for hormonal changes and responsibilities of mother.

He seems to be suffering from Paranoid disorder, consult your nearby psychiatrist on how to treat him, against his will. Since he himself is a lawyer, you need to seek the help of another lawyer and file a petition to the magistrate under the Mental Health Act 1987, for involuntary treatment. The petition can be given by the closest family member. The judge will summon him, and he would request the opinion from a government psychiatric hospital and then decide on future treatment course. All the best.
