I am a smoker for the past 30 yrs. I have decided its high time to drop it. Though I am willing, I feel the urge. Please help me.

General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. You can ask me privately Best age to stop smoking is before 40 Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, Best age to stop smoking is before 40 Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality.

More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. 31st May is ?World No Tobacco Day? Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke.

I am manoj. I have smoking daily. In 3years, so I have leave a smoking what can I do?

PHD Psychology, MSC Clinical Psychology, BSC Psychology

It’s hard to quit smoking, but you can do it. To have the best chance of quitting and staying a non-smoker, you need to know what you’re up against, what your options are, and where to go for help. Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) can help with the difficult withdrawal symptoms and cravings that 70% to 90% of smokers say is their only reason for not giving up cigarettes. Using NRT reduces those symptoms.

Myth and fact about Depression

MD - Psychiatry, senior resident, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Myth and fact about Depression

Myth: depression is not a real illness.

Fact: depression is a medical illness; a health problem related to the brain and is the major cause of disability. Research has shown the involvement of abnormal brain activities in patients with depression; hence, it should not be confused with ordinary sadness.

Depression is different for everyone, but just like any illness, it can get better with the right help and support. Your doctor is the most trusted ally for treating depression that can help you to lead a normal, healthy and active life.

Actually my brother started smoking how to quit smoking n he wanted to consult a doctor for that reason so that he might recommend some tablets.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He could visit a doctor who will prescribe some medicines that help with the initial craving. But he can also do the following: It is indeed a very noble thought that you want to help your brother. However, it is now very clear that in any addiction, the addict must want to stop the habit himself for any success. All you can do is keep advising him, but also highlight the dangers of tobacco smoke with correct information. And believe me that it is indeed very scary. One thing that hits a lot of youngsters, boys in particular, is that you will lose your erectile capacity and over a period of time even your sexual potency can diminish. And of course everyone has heard about cancer, which is very frightful. You could take him to any police station or cancer hospital to view the condition of cancer-caused disfigurement and it is horrific. These things do help in dissuading people from smoking. In other words, create awareness such that it works as a deterrent to further smoking. You would have done him a great favor. 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 himself 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 take 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. All the damage he incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Quitting smoking?-A long term effort.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Hyderabad

Follow the tips-
*even if you have decided to quit and stopped smoking, unexpected temptations lure you back. That is the moment you have to be firm, resolute and resist temptation.
*once you are convinced about the health hazards, it is your personal determination which can drive you to achieve the aim.
* once you decide, stop smoking and be mentally prepared to withstand temptations. Throw away your balance cigarettes, ash tray and related items. Try to keep off from your smoking friends for a few days and request not light a cigarette in front of you.
* drink lots of water and fluids to flush out toxins like nicotine from your system.
* whenever you feel urge and tense about it, take deep breathing, inhale maximum air and exhale thereafter. Do it several times to feel free.
* the urge will last for short period and gradually recedes. Divert your attention to some other tasks.
*you may feel urge when you have tea, coffee or alcohol. You may chew gum, suck cinnamon piece as a temporary alternate. Ensure not to acquire a new addiction.
*every time you feel the urge, recollect and write down the possible serious risks to your heath
* seek support of your friends and relatives.
* constantly remind yourself of the possible disease conditions and you win the battle finally!

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, Memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

You should attend english speaking classes, elocution classes, and public speaking courses to improve your pronunciation. There is good video material in the british council that are useful too. This is not a big deal and you can do it in a short time.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. From the given symptoms, it seems that your wife is troubled from stress and anxiety disorder. General anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.
