I'm 22 years old. I've been masturbating since 10 years. My erection would be harder and I used to get pain if I won't masturbate. So I did it. But now I'm not getting that good mood as earlier and feeling depressed about it. I have stopped masturbating now. And ill continue this till my marriage will this help me? And suggest me some ideas about my condition. I'm feeling very much stressed about it.

Masturbation is a healthy form of sexual outlet, only compulsive maturation, when u neglect ur other work and keep indulging in it is a disorder. remove ur guilt about masturbatory practises. Worldwide more than 95% of men and 70% of Women masturbate. Many men continue to masturbate even after marriage, which is not wrong, as the pleasure given by masturbation is different from sex. Many married women also masturbate, when they are not able to achieve orgasm from sex with spouse and when they are not sexually gratified. So get these facts right and remove the guilt and get on with ur work, and masturbate when u feel like.

Along with that if you are feeling sad, interest in other activities decreases specially pleasurable one, unable to concentrate on things and many more. If such symptoms are there you are suffering from depression. So it's better for you to visit a psychiatrist. He would definitely help you.

Hi sir, I m very depressed for quite a long time. Due to marriage issues, it is affecting my overall health n m jobless right now, it seems from everywhere I m kind of trapped, don't know what to do where to go . What should i do for coping up with this low time and depressed? Thanks plz

That can be very tough if you are feeling trapped everywhere, Out of job is another issues that you mentioned. Job brings financial security and self respect along with satisfaction. Marriage also helps in feeling secure and desire of love and companionship gets taken care of. Bringing up children is yet another aspect which can be very satisfying for some people. Yet if you are not getting these expectations met, then it can be very disappointing and depressing for some people. I would suggest to you strongly that you approach a counsellor first who will also refer you to a psychiatrist if necessary, and if there is clinical depression, then you take meds from the psychiatrist.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

My son is suffering of schizophrenia for last 2 years .he is under treatment of a psychiatrist .he is taking medicine par, kin,rospitni+3, dolteus2.5 pl guide me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are a wide variety of symptoms depending on the type of schizophrenia. If he has the symptoms of a type called paranoid schizophrenia, it is the most common of the schizophrenias. There will be delusions of persecution and suspicion over everyone including family and other trusted ones. Paranoids are specifically tormented by abnormal fear. What they do however is that instead of dealing with that fear, they escalate anger over it and act violent. They are extremely sensitive to rejection or the anticipation of it. Their thinking can be quite illogical and distorted. They imagine everything with suspicion and withdraw into themselves. They must be put on medication and a lot of occupational therapy and intense psychotherapy are needed to mitigate the symptoms. Kindly do not attempt alternative therapy until a psychiatric evaluation has been performed and completed. A correct diagnosis must be made and prescription followed accordingly. It is very difficult to attempt treatment with other forms of therapy, which lack the tools to tackle this serious mental disorder. In fact, they may cause irreparable damage even with good intentions. Schizophrenia can be a very crippling disease if treatment is tampered with by amateurs or by lay people. You must strictly follow doctor’s instructions. To me, your son is seemingly doing well without knowing many details. If you push the expectation on him at this juncture, you may reverse all the benefits, inadvertently. Counseling will help him develop coping skills that will stand him in good stead. The counselor will put him on some Cognitive Behavior Modification program and according to the improvement may suggest review of the medication with the psychiatrist. Now that is the way to go about this. Please do not even suggest to your son about reducing medication in any form. Let it come from the professional, ideally.

Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE 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. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year.

When you Feel Anxious …

1. Relax your breathing. Take deliberate slow, deep breaths, and feel the tension begin to subside.

2. Clear your mind of disturbing thoughts. Remind yourself of all your strengths, of those occasions when you’ve coped in the past, and of things you still have to look forward to.

3. Shut off the critical parent in your head. We all have weaknesses and make mistakes. Don’t abandon, attack, or reject yourself. You need to support, and to nurture, yourself.

4. Practice self-care. Temporarily step back from the stressful situation. Maybe listen to some music, or message a friend, or play with your pet, or go for a walk.

5. Respond – don’t react. You don’t have to do anything right now. Take a moment to take control of your feelings and your thoughts. Then assess the situations, and think through different options.

6. You may have to put up protective boundaries. We often don’t have the energy to give at these times – so withdraw from people who would drain your energy.

7. A burden shared is a burden halved. Share how you feel with someone who cares. It’s good to ask for help when you’re worried or afraid.

Hi Doctor, My partner gets hyper immediately, reacts immediately, shouts a lot on every little mistake you do. Never talks in soft tone. What should a I do to help, is this normal or I am thinking tooo much.

This must be getting difficult for you as you see your partner losing her temper often. In counselling you can vent out your feelings, learn to talk assertively and what you might be doing to earn her anger every time. It would be helpful if your partner also meets a counsellor and gets insights and awareness about herself and her behaviour.

Memory power can be increased by repetition and recollection. Remove all tensions and worries and keep your mind calm when you study. Focus on what you study and understand. Then close your book and recollect what you studied. Write down several times. By this way you can increase your memory.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

4 Supporting Foods That Help When You Plan to QUIT SMOKING!
4 Surprising foods that can help you quit smoking


Smoking can be one of the most difficult habits to break, requiring a great amount of willpower and commitment. If you’re a smoker who is looking to quit this habit, making some simple changes in your food habit can ease the quitting process.

So, how does food help in quitting smoking? While certain foods can help to reduce your nicotine dependence, there are other foods out there that have been found to make cigarettes taste terrible. Here are some of the options that you can try out if you’re planning to quit smoking:

1. Milk
Milk can give cigarettes a terrible taste. A study conducted by the Duke University shows that consuming a glass of milk right before smoking can make you think that the cancer stick has a bitter taste.
While it’s still not clear what component in milk brings about such an effect, it’s suspected that the bitter taste is a result of the chemical reaction between the lactose in milk and the tobacco smoke. So, have a glass of milk each time you want to smoke.

2. Nuts
Another helpful food alternative that will keep you from reaching for those cigarettes are nuts. This is because hunger can cause you to have a nicotine craving. You can reduce the urge to smoke by having nuts that are high in soluble fibre as they will slow down your digestion.
Full of nutrients, protein and energy, having them whenever you feel the need to light a cigarette can be highly effective in helping you to quit the bad habit.

3. Fruits rich in Vitamin C
Smoking brings about a fall in your body’s Vitamin C levels, which you can easily replenish by consuming fruits that are high on Vitamin C. You can try citrus fruits like oranges and lemons that are known to have high Vitamin C content, or you can even include pomegranates in your diet.
By including these fruits in your diet you can significantly cut down your need to smoke, as these fruits provide a thrust that is similar when you smoke a cigarette. Besides, they leave a similar bitter aftertaste in your mouth as when you smoke after drinking milk.

4. Vegetables
Besides milk and citrus fruits, certain vegetables are also known to give cigarettes a horrible taste. The vegetables that you need to include in your diet are celery, carrots, zucchini, cucumber and eggplant. They have been proven to be very effective in reducing nicotine craving. Take for instance carrots; they contain a compound known as carotenoids, which not only gives cigarettes a bitter taste, but can also make you less dependent on nicotine.
Another reason as to why you must have these vegetables is because they are a simple way of tricking your brain into thinking that they look like cigarettes (because of their stick shape) and can give you the illusion of an actual cigarette whenever you have them.
So, include these foods in your diet and see yourself saying goodbye to smoking much faster.

Your father might be indulging in this relationship due to various reasons, which you can understand after few years. Does he fulfill the responsibility of a father, does he abuse you. I can understand your mom s depression. Take them to a psychiatrist to discuss about this extra marital issue. Do not have any violent thoughts with him. He is a person who needs to be analyzed and helped.

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, consume less of fat and use olive or coconut oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises. 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 recall where there are two modes of memory recall. Fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids (including sardines and salmon) and fight artery-damaging inflammation. The same is true for walnuts. Berries, especially blueberries, are loaded with anthocyanins — potent antioxidants that protect cells, including those in the brain. Blueberries may also have the power to create new pathways for connections in the brain: These connectors tend to die off with age, but in animal studies, blueberry consumption has been shown to help restore them, says Jim Joseph, Ph.D., director of the neuroscience lab at the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, Tufts University. Although many of the reports on the brain-boosting power of supplements like vitamins B, C, E, beta-carotene, and magnesium are promising, a supplement is only useful to people whose diets are lacking in that specific nutrient. If you want to power up your ability to concentrate, start with a meal of 100% fruit juice, a whole-grain bagel with salmon, and a cup of coffee. In addition to eating a well-balanced meal, experts also offer this advice: • Get a good night's sleep. • Stay hydrated. • Exercise to help sharpen thinking. Meditate to clear thinking and relax.
