I consume alcohol daily/regularly. Now I want to quit alcohol completely. Is there any problem if I quit it suddenly. Please suggest me some ideas to quit alcohol.

BHMS, MD - Homoeopathy

Yes, there can be some serious withdrawal symptom occur if you suddenly stop taking alcohol. So to avoid this, decrease quantity of alcohol, and also increase gap of days slowly, in this way you can easily quit alcohol completely in 1 or 2 months.

The medication you took does not cause any such side effects. But if you still feel uneasy and not comfortable taking these medicines, you may stop taking them. Most of then are vitamin b group vitamins and do to remain in body for more than 3-4 days.

I was a very fun loving and happy go lucky boy but now I lack such confidence , energy and is a bit more agressive in nature. Sometimes I fill very low and emotional.

You are suffering from depression, and I assume you have just entered your 20s age wise. Towards the later end of your adolescence most pathologies (if you have a predisposition for them) manifest and develop into serious conditions, if ignored. The aggression indicates that your depression could be anger related, which has other complications. Since you have had it for 2-3 years, I think you may be neglecting it too much. Kindly visit a psychiatrist but follow the prescription until advised. Also seek the help of a counselor to develop coping skills that will stand you in good stead for life.

I am experiencing loss of concentration and memory. I can't recall things I study.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: 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. 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. 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 a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. 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. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid all junk food.

I am a student I always get sleepy during my study and I can not memorise so help me?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Masters in psychology counselling
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person. Please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

I think I have some memory problem. I cannot remember something for a long time. Give me some advice to remember my study notes. Thank you.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
You are distracting from your aim. It shows weakness of your mind and nothing else. Just control your mind and think about your future. Studies is the easiest way to attain success and sometimes even glory. You will realise my words after few years. Just concentrate your mind on your studies and be focused because you will be known by your own name only after you attain heights and studies is a short cut to attain new heights. So always keep this in mind and target your goals, you will never forget. I will help you in this direction by prescribing you homoeopathic medicines------------------------------ bacoppa monneri (wilmar schwabe india) chew 2 tab twice daily------- bren-up (allen) drink 2 spoon 3 times daily-------- bramhari pranayam daily for 15 minutes ------------ report after 30 days--------------------

My sister Eats chalks and cements why this happens how can it be cured? She is eating it from last 6years can it be harmful?

Certificate course in Pain Relief and Palliative care, MBBS
General Physician, Secunderabad
Hello Ms. Lybrate-user. The condition that you are describing is called pica. It is quite common in women in reproductive age group. Since they loose blood during periods and are not able to make up for it, gthe body signals them to eat these things like chalk, mud, cement, etc. It signals the body's deficiency of blood. You can do a blood test (cbp) and see how much her hemoglobin is- if it is less some iron tablets can be started. Also you can give her some deworming medicine- to get rid of worms in stools (quite common in indian patients). Before all this it is advisable to get a blood test done called cbp- complete blood picture.

Tobacco Cessation - How It Is Good For You?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Tobacco Cessation - How It Is Good For You?

Benefits of tobacco cessation are many. You reduce your risk for hypertension, cancer, cardio-vascular diseases and other serious chronic diseases substantially, at whatever age you quit your nicotine habit. The earlier you quit, the more you benefit. If you quit before the age of 50, you bring down your risk of dying from smoking-related diseases by 50%. But if you’ve crossed 60, suffer from heart disease and/or hyper tension, you can manage these diseases better through tobacco cessation. 

Here are a few other health benefits of stopping tobacco use: 

  1. Reduces risks of heart disease, cancer especially lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) 
  2. Cuts down risks of Impotence due to erectile dysfunction in men, and fertility problems in women 
  3. Optic neuropathy affects the optic nerve that conducts visual signals from the eyes to the brain 
  4. Cataract Macular degeneration is breakdown of the tissue at the back of the eye 
  5. Psoriasis 
  6. Gum disease
  7. Losing teeth early 
  8. Osteoporosis or spongy, thin bones 
  9. Complications in pregnancy i.e. women who smoke have more complications during pregnancy and have low-birth babies. 

Your food and drink also tastes better once you kick the tobacco habit. 

So, how can you stop smoking? Are there any medications and strategies available? The answer is a definite ‘Yes’. Tobacco cessation has been honed into an art these days. 

  1. Clinics: There are tobacco cessation clinics that help you with tobacco cessation. These are manned by psychiatrists, who can provide detailed information, encouragement, and tips to stop smoking. 
  2. Medications: You can use many medicines while you’re trying to stop smoking. This increases your chance of quitting and including nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). NRT can be in the form of gums, sprays, patches, tablets, lozenges, and inhalers. NRT is even available without a prescription. Medicines called bupropion and varenicline also very useful. 
  3. Electronic cigarettes: Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are designed to look and feel like normal cigarettes. These contain a heating element that vapourises a solution and looks like smoke. Some may also contain low levels of nicotine. There is currently controversial evidence on their efficacy. 
  4. Counselling and behavioural therapy: They are both very effective too, especially if you are being guided by a cessation expert. He or she can help you with a personalised quit plan, including ways to cope with nicotine withdrawal. Apart from this, online support is also available for those who don’t have the time or money to engage in personal, face-to-face counseling. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, Psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.

I have pain in my right side of chest at night but I smoke everyday what should I do I have a problem quiting smoking.
you have chest infection.due to smoking..pl. stop smoking.Your personal stop smoking plan While some smokers successfully quit by going cold turkey, most people do better with a plan to keep themselves on track. A good plan addresses both the short–term challenge of quitting smoking and the long–term challenge of preventing relapse. It should also be tailored to your specific needs and smoking habits. Questions to ask yourself Take the time to think of what kind of smoker you are, which moments of your life call for a cigarette, and why. This will help you to identify which tips, techniques or therapies may be most beneficial for you. Do you feel the need to smoke at every meal? Are you more of a social smoker? Is it a very bad addiction (more than a pack a day)? Or would a simple nicotine patch do the job? Do you reach for cigarettes when you're feeling stressed or down? Are there certain activities, places, or people you associate with smoking? Is your cigarette smoking linked to other addictions, such as alcohol or gambling? Are you open to hypnotherapy and/or acupuncture? Are you someone who is open to talking about your addiction with a therapist or counselor? Are you interested in getting into a fitness program?
