My dad has a chronic addiction of alcohol and cigarette smoking. It is from about last 30 years. He smoke about 5 to 10 cigarettes a day and about 6-8 pegs of whisky/wine a day. And even exceed it ocassionaly. Me and my family have tried to counsel him but it's not working. I am now in a medical school and whole heartedly want to do something for this. He could not even make to skip a day from his addiction. Please suggest me. Could anti - smoking drugs work, without much of a side effects.

Hello lybrate-user, you need to take your father to a de-addiction center, where they admit him and he undergoes detoxification and medicines are given under supervision. Each patient reacts differently to such meds. So its better to have him admitted rather an opd treatment.

Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storing and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Post a private question to me and I shall provide you more tips. Take care.

If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical to your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. As regards the concentration you are sure to have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it; together with depression I can imagine your problems. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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, 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 is 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 the family goes for counseling.

You should never play around with medication without consultation with a doctor. You will also need to go for a thorough medical examination to see the cause for the other problems you are having. Your symptoms may have manifested itself at late adolescence and were indicative that there was something in your childhood that has precipitated them. If you know of what that is then meet with a counselor to work on that contributing factor. If you combined counseling with the medication you can expect the best outcomes for your anxiety disorder. However, you must be episode-free for at least three years before the doctor will decide on weaning you off of the medication but in a gradual and effective manner. Counseling will help in training you will skills and techniques to cope with the daily challenges in life and will give you a fair chance to manage your life when the reduction in medicines is initiated by the doctor. You must also develop your constitution to make it fit enough to cope with fear, felt many times unnecessarily. This involves physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully.

Is it medically possible to erase a bad incident from your memory. And if it happened because of your own mistake and now you are unable to accept that you could do such a filthy act? I am regretting it badly. It's been a month and I cry for almost whole day, daily! I just can't accept that I did the act. Sometimes I feel like killing myself. Is there any way to completely erase it from my memory. I can not feel anything. No happiness no excitement nothing. I have lost interest in everything I do. I don't care if I am driving watching movie or bathing I keep thinking about that mistake over and over again and now I can't undo it. I don't feel hunger or thirst. I don't enjoy anything. Not even the things I was excited about before, I just keep on thinking about that mistake. I want to run away. I am completely detached from this world and I think about my mistake for every moment of the day, its out if my control to stop the thought and there is no relief. I just want to die. I don't know for how long I can handle it. Is there any way to relieve my pain. Can doctors erase that event from my brain? Can I get relief by any therapy? Can you help me forget that incident like it never happened? Can you take away that part of my life? Please?

Dear Lybrate user. You must understand repression. Your mind itself is capable to erase a memory which is painful or causing anxiety and worries. If it has not done, according to your mind, the memories are not that painful. In modern medicine, there are no medicines which can erase memories. But many medicines are there which can help you reduce those thoughts. Hypnotherapy can help remove the memories. Take care.

From childhood I suffered from ocd. No one was aware of this disease in my family although everyone specially my mom had it's trait. I was bright student till class 9. My downfall started from 21st July 2009 in 10 th standard. I still remember the date I used to top in my class till 9 th standard I think everyone knows from childhood only I used to talk less. I had very less friends. I was in 9th standard and those were the days I was going through hormonal changes. Actually I am not hesitating to write here nor I have hesitation to talk about anything it's my procrastination which is delaying it. I was in 9th when I accidentally saw porn and I was clueless about that. Like every young boy I wanted to see it again and again but I didn't knew y. I was going through physical and mental changes and there was no one to guide me. That time I thought I was unique. I wasn't aware that it was Natural. I thought I had disease. Since there was no one to talk to, I searched it about it on net. It was that time I heard a term porn addiction. I researched alot about it. For many months I researched on porn addiction. Somewhere I read it is like diabetes, it is very big sin etc etc. I assumed that I have porn addiction although now I don't think I had it at that time. I thought this disease is unique to me. I tried avoiding it but I would watch once in a week or 15 days. I felt so much frustrated after that. In 2009 10th board used to be very important. I started preparing for boards from march itself. Like every brilliant student I wanted 95%. I started studying day and night, 24 hours. I stopped watching tv. I threw all my pc games. I stopped everything. I had many ocd problems that time too like repetition, washing hand and many more which I don't remember. I controlled all these by my will. I used to study motivational book to motivate myself. I used to study books on how to study 24 hours and every second. How to utilize every second with focus in studies I had controlled almost all things. Now only studying and watching porn was left. I almost controlled my porn habits too. I used to watch in 20 days but watching porn for even 2 minutes in 20 days was very painful. I used to regret 2-3 days continuously after watching it and being normal and studying again. Since my parents were very lenient, I used to be strict with myself. I read it somewhere that to achieve success we need to be strict with ourselves. I used to abuse myself. I used to harm and hurt myself very badly. I used to bang my head and fist on the wall. I used to cry a lot. Now, I am more affected by procrastination and avoidance. One of my major negative promise to myself was that I would never Change. I would never Break the promise made by me on 21st July. I would never study. This harmed me the most My major question which I could not solve in those 3 to 4 years of my life was that 1. What was happening to me? 2. Is watching porn, masturbation normal thing or is it evil which I use to think? 3. Is it important to keep promise? This used to come when I used to try motivating myself against negative thoughts. 4. Is it right to always study and do nothing else? 5. Is sex and porn wrong and most evil? 6. Was being strict, cursing and shouting and demoralizing myself for motivation good for studies and disciplined life which was successful till 21st July? 6. I have read in many places that we can control everything except sexual desire. Why is it? Why can't we control that. 7. Is study everything? I used to believe and still I believe study is everything. I can get anything in this world through studies. It is as important as oxygen and food. I did never cared for my face and clothes and studied all day. After countering those thoughts with counselling and passing 12 th board somehow the only thing that has distributed me is my procrastination, avoidance and laziness. I have become so lazy that I think 1000 times to move from my bed. From 2013 till now I have slept almost 80% of my life. The biggest thing is that I have started complaining which I realized now and I try for sympathy so that I can motivate myself but these motivation exists for two days

This can happen because of familiarity with your spouse, whereas with another woman it may have to be done clandestinely, infrequently, with a lot of precautions, and she is different to your wife. For some men if there is a challenge, it excites them more. But then you are doing a gross injustice to your wife by this cheating behavior. Perhaps you could engage in a variety of methods, manners, and to some extent extraordinary sex with each other to bring excitement to your physical relationship. Your sex life may be getting boring and monotonous too.
