Ideally you must send a lot of time convincing him to stop the smoking. Of course he will agree sometimes and sometimes he will change his mind. Giving up is difficult but if you highlight the dangers of smoking regularly he may one day decide to quit. Never give up on him. Because of the quantity of cigarettes smoked and the length of abuse, he will find is even more hard. When quitting, he must take one day at a time. If he looks too far ahead he will get discouraged and will give up. If he sits and counts the number of days he has given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. He 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 he fails one day, he must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. His 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 his 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 him about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and he must remind himself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So he must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for him. In fact it is highly toxic too. He will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He 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. He 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 him 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 he has quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. Everyone who can help him should be involved until he succeeds.

Dear, from the given information, your problem is related to your own attitude. Have you had any disappointing incidents in the near past? disappointment also can manifest such symptoms. I think two or more health related counseling should clear your problem. Please let me know if you are willing for telephonic counseling. Take care.

I am a 21 years old female. I have been smoking for 5 years now. 3-4 cigarettes per day! Sometimes more. But I really plan to quit now! What should be the best way to quit? Cold turkey or reducing one at a time before quitting so that chances of relapse is very less? And after quitting what is the best technique to cleanse your lungs faster and feel fitter again? If I keep few years gap between quitting and pregnancy, will my baby be healthy?

For various reasons smoking causes more harm on women than on man. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. 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.

It's very frustrating and confusing when one of the partner appears to be very elusive of an intimate part of the relationship. Lack of intimacy does impact the relationship in many ways. Meet a sexologist and relationship therapist or a psychologist along with your wife to understand what's happening in the relationship and what's stopping your wife from indulging in intimacy. Don't ignore or delay thinking that time will make everything alright. The sooner you resolve this issue, the better it will be. All the best.

Life is very precious and its equally important that you live every second happily and enjoy all the beautiful colours of life ,i can understand the situation through which you are going its really painful. Through your query I can feel that you want to change this situation its really good ,when there is a will there is a way. Any professional can show the path but you have to go on that path, you need slightly change in your approach .when any time negative thought runs then just say to yourself that I will deal all this from evening 6 pm to 7 pm and presently I am suppose to do any work which you are doing and at evening write all the thoughts in diary, one more way is that share all thoughts with any good friend. Divert your mind ,make yourself busy as muc h as you can so that you don't get time to think ,make some good friends with whom you can share your feelings, develop some hobby, take sleep of 6-8 hours it is compulsory, for this don't sleep at day time ,you need to maintain your sleeping cycle ,do some yoga and meditation, don't think on this topic as much you will think you will be more frustrated because these thoughts are endless. Take care.

Dear, quitting smoking is tricky but is very easy task. There are several methods in psychotherapy to quit smoking. Initially you need to show will power which we will impart through motivation therapy and mind power building therapy. Then slowly you learn to adjust yourself with the non-smoking regime. It will take time, but will be a success. Consult me for more online therapy and counseling. Take care.

any tablet if you take it works at that time only. the side effects if you face at that time only. for example if you take headache tablet it works on that movements only. next day if again headache comes you need to take again another tablet. previous day tablet it will not work next day. like that you are taken tablets you face the severity and side effects on particular days only. it will not effect on your sexula life. that you have doubt i do one mistake it may be effected or not. it is psychological feeling. so dont think about this matter again. better to marry and enjoy your sexual life. this age is right age for enjoying the sexual life. dont be alone. better to spend most of the time with friends and family members. better to share your personal feelings and problems with closed ones. be sociable and be happy all time. enjoy the masturabtion also.it is also good sexual sign of the normal human being. ok best of luck..

No dose of smoking is okay or healthy for the body. Smoking causes increased risks of cancer of almost all organs of the body. It is always better to quit smoking before its too late. It takes a lot of motivation on your part to quit smoking. The treatment includes - treatment for symptoms that occur due to stopping smoking like irritability, depression, constipation, sleep problems etc. - treatment of craving with appropriate dose of replacements - treatment of associated diseases like respiratory problems - regular follow ups contact me online with a complete history of your smoking pattern and lifestyle with a brief history of associated complaints if any so that we can work out the best possible management for you. Good luck, take care.
