Trying To Quit Alcohol? Know Here!!

General Physician, Mahabubnagar
Trying To Quit Alcohol? Know Here!!

If you are trying to quit alcohol, you should stick to beers and wines. True or False. Take this quiz to know now!

1. Heavy drinkers have smaller brain volumes

  1. True
  2. False

Answer - True

Studies have shown that drinking too much alcohol can lead to the death of brain cells in certain parts of the brain such as the parietal lobe. It also causes electrical dysfunction in the brain by disturbing the brain's neurotransmitters.

2. Which of the following is an effect of alcohol withdrawal??

  1. Nausea
  2. Anxiety Disorder
  3. Shakiness and restlessness
  4. All of the above

Answer - All of the above 

Alcoholism is a serious medical condition that requires proper diagnosis and therapy. The withdrawal symptoms of suddenly quitting alcohol include anxiety, cold sweats, a sick feeling in the stomach and delirium.

3. An alcoholic needs to hit rock bottom before being able to quit and recover

  1. True
  2. False

Answer - False

Alcoholism has various degrees and not every alcoholic hits rock bottom before recovering. In any case, "rock bottom" is a subjective concept and does not mean the same thing for every individual. If you want to quit drinking, you should begin right away and not wait till you reach a low point in your life.

4. If you are trying to quit alcohol, you should stick to beers and wines

  1. True
  2. False

Answer - False

It is a common myth that beer and wine drinkers cannot be alcoholics. The truth is that these drinks may contain high percentages of alcohol which can effectively sustain an alcohol addiction even if one entirely avoids hard liquor.

5. Which of the following is the most effective way to avoid alcoholism?

  1. Distilling your own liquor
  2. Avoiding pubs and bars
  3. Not drinking above the legal limit
  4. Replacing alcohol with drugs

Answer - Not drinking above the legal limit  

Alcoholism only occurs when one overindulges in alcohol and binge drinks. Those who are trying to quit drinking or avoid alcoholism should refrain from consuming liquor in excess of the permissible limits for drinking at all times.

The break from your academic pursuits will have a bearing when you come back to it after some time. I really like that you want to finish what you had begun some time ago. If you have taken an arts combination, it is really very easy to study. Write down short notes while you are preparing and learn those notes only. Later, you will be able to remember them well and memorize them easily. Also keep short duration study times: usually not exceeding 1.5 hours at a time. Then take a break and come back to it immediately after. Do some group-study with anyone else you know who is also doing the same course. Take some tutorials too. Whenever you feel drowsy, do written work. Study a variety of subjects to make learning interesting. Have someone test your knowledge and see how much you have retained, periodically. Eat well, sleep well and exercise well, everyday. June is a long way off actually, and much work can be done between now and then. All the best and I am glad you are finishing your course.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. That is a nice thought. Everybody does the same thing again and again. Maximum are doing routine works. How to change the tempo of routine works? First of all, be yourself aware that in daily 24 hours, you may have to do many routine work. Starting from brushing teeth to taking bath, to going and doing your employment related duties to family commitments etc. In between these many tasks, you may get two or three hours for yourself to be creative and try to be away from routines. This is where you have to be tricky. Hobbies, outing, vacations, games, entertainment, flirting, being with friends etc are activities which will help you to escape from routines. Use them wisely. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, it seems you have anxiety and negative thoughts which are irrational. Practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Also, we need to do cognitive behavior therapy to help you with negative irrational thoughts. Don't worry at all you can overcome this with right treatment. All the best.

Rather than taking alcohol, you should consult a psychiatrist in government hospital where consultation and medicines are free of cost. Its very important for you to take treatment because your symptoms look severe. If treated properly, you can definitely come out of it. Do not lose hope!

Smokers breath / bad breath is due the nicotine and tartar accumulated on the teeth. The best remedy is to get your teeth cleaned and polished to eliminate any tartar and the associated gum inflamation which causes the bad breath. Stopping smoking is the best remedy, but if you do not then a cleaning every 8 months will help periodically remove the nicotene and the tartar. This will keeps the gums healthy and the bad breath will be greatly reduced.

Dear lybrate user, the medicines will certainly give some relief to your wife. But it will be symptomatic. The moment the effect of the medicine wears out, she might get the same feelings again. If she is feeling very sad and axious, please take her to a counsellor. She will be able to relieve her stress by talking to the counsellor and the counsellor will help her to modify her thought processes. Once she expresses her feelings, her anxiety will reduce. If any further assessments are required, the counsellor will guide you. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user In such situations our thinking gets influenced by our negative experiences memories emotions etc. And we are not able to take right decisions. Fear hopelessness negativity etc. Get over us. Psychotherapy counseling and mind training is all you need. You will be able to take right decisions that will be best for your and will be according to your interest and potential. You can also get to know about the reasons due to which you have failed and with mind training you can even get good marks achieve your goals and be happy and satisfied. For more information contact me in private. Good luck.

Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory!’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Ditch the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Sat Nav may have made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and less efficient at the same time! Go back to the old school and use a map to navigate every now and then (this exercises the part of your brain responsible for understanding spatial relationships). 10. Ban the calculator Remember back at school when we were taught to use our brains to do simple sums like times tables?! It’s incredible how we now rely on devices like smart-phones and laptops to calculate really simple equations. Resist the urge to work things out using an external device – and use the device you were born with – your brain! 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Dear Apoorv. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Two to three months smoking can do very little damage to your body. Stop smoking and drionk enough water and fruit juices. Your body will start repairing itself. Within another three months everything will be back to normal. Take care.

Hello doctor, I got married in Jan 2017 .my husband is eight years elder than me. N this is arrange marriage. We didn't get much time before marriage to spend with each other. Because he leaves in canada n I leaves in India. We only talk on phone before 2 months of marriage. He came here for marriage. After that he went back. We spent 18 days together after marriage. N now we usually talk on phone. I got to know that he is short tampered. He usually yell on me because of other persons. N he use very abusive language for them in front of me. Those persons are some time my project manager, some times my brother ,or my sister .I don't know people around me. He have problem with all. N when I defend them that you are misunderstanding then he never listen n screams on me. N always complain to my mother in law about me. I don't know he is mentally fine or not. But what to do now I am afraid. My family too scared to send me there in canada now for him. Please guide me what to do Thanks n regards.

Try to get him realise what he does. In India, A female chatacter is seen as a holy importance. He needs to inderstand you or you can give him chance of getting better. The treatment for your complain is tendem love and intimacy. Get urself here prepare for giving him a chance or coming back if he can not change. Marriage is a initiation of happiness not sadness. Be calm and get him a chance. Its not called medical problem. I can only give advice. It may seem/be wrong also.

Dear lybrateuser, -Unless your mind is at peace you will not be able to concentrate & study well, one requires a peaceful, friendly & congenial atmosphere to do well in any field -your decision to change your college is justified as under mental disturbance & hostile environment you cannot do well, let people say what they want you should have faith in your decision, study hard & do well they will be happy with you & you also will come over your apprehensions about changing the college.
