Hi, am 27 years old I hve an habit of smoking from past 3 years I will take 2 cig per day, but now am willing to quit smoking as soon as possible please suggest me how can I quit smoking asap.

MBBS
Sexologist, Mumbai
The way to quit smoking is by stopping it. Respect your SELF. It's the mind that gets the stick. It's the mind that chooses to say, "No" There are medicines and methods for the poorly motivated. Choose to triumph. The sense of accomplishment in quitting raises your self respect and "determination" to a higher level. This power translates into other challenges in life where determination and heroism make world of difference. 2 cigarettes a day. It's nothing. You can do it. Just do it.

Hi, you need to put that stress burden down. You can talk to a psychologist and get proper counseling done. Fix your time to sleep at night and to wake up. Try not to seep in afternoon have coffee and keep yourself. Exercise in the evening for around 30 minutes daily. Drink lots of water.

Memory can be increased by encoding data using various memorising techniques like mnemonics. You have mentioned that you are suffering from anxiety and depression and are on medication. Please do regular exercise like jogging or walking or yoga etc, eat well balanced food, sleep well and spend time in activities that you enjoy doing. You can consult a counsellor for exploring your issue. You can take guidance of your psychiatrist too.

Dear , depressive disorder needs prolonged treatment. I don' t know for how many years you are taking this treatment. If you are feeling fine, you should talk to your psychiatrist to taper the medicines and stop in a period of one year. Abrupt stop is not advisable. Also you should practice psychotherapy methods so that those depression symptoms do not relapse. Post a private question to me and I shall provide you tips. Take care.

There are three types of memmory. Sensory memory, short term memory and long term memory. Memory is based on perception and recollection. From the given info, there is nothing to worry about amnesia related problems. Better and effective learning methods improve your memory and recollection. I think two or more counseling sessions should be good for you. Please let me know if you are willing for telephone counseling sessions. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, depression is like any medical disease like diabetes and bp, aimed at sustenance and not cure. Please continue the same medicines and consult your doctor for change of dose or adding another medicine or cognitive behaviour therapy. Few alternate therapy like yoga and pranayama may be added to tablets. Few nutritional supplements like same, flax seeds and omega 3 fatty acids also can be added to medicines.

Avoid studying in or near the bed. Also dont study in a lying posture. change the subject you study every one to two hours for variety Take regular, scheduled breaks that fit you, For every thirty minutes of studies take five minutes break. During this break time just close your eyes and relax yourself, If you have been studying continuously in a sitting posture, get up and stretch yourself. You can even have a short walk which will make you feel active Use active studying techniques Walk around and read loudly For every fifteen minutes change the method of studying. For example first study loudly in a sitting posture, followed by writing down the points which you feel as important or the ones which needs frequent reading and review, then draw the related drawing graphs etc, then have a brief discussion or sharing of what you have studied with your friends or any other people around you. Involve in activities that does not demand your attention such as jogging and review what you have studied. Alternate between studying and such physical activity. Read out loud, record it in audio tapes for listening whenever you are less active Involve in discussions and debates with your friends or teachers on what you have studied and your understanding of the content. Create mental images about what you are studying, draw pictures and diagrams frequently to reinforce

Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Hi am sumit jha from pune. Please answer me what is smoking effect And how to stop smoking please any idia for stop smoking.

MSC Psychotherapy & Counselling, CHt Hypnotherapy, MD Alternative Medicine, MBBS, Diploma in Public Health
Psychologist, Mumbai
Hi There is one technique called Urge Surfing to control the urge of smoking. Urges rarely last for very long. In fact, they almost never last for longer than about 30 minutes, if there is no opportunity to use. If there is no opportunity to use then there is no internal struggle. It is this internal struggle that feeds the cravings. Trying to fight cravings is like trying to block a waterfall. We end up being inundated. With the approach of mindfulness, we step aside and watch the water (cravings, impulses & urges) just go right past. Exercise: Reflecting on Urges Ask yourself whether there have been times when you could not give in to an urge when it presented. Did the urge pass? Most of us will have had past experiences of urges passing. This is an important strategy to identify, as it can greatly improve self-efficacy for riding out urges. The main message is that urges do not have to be acted upon. The Technique of Urge Surfing: Often people try to eliminate the urges by distraction or talking themselves out of them. This usually just feeds the urges and creates the illusion that they are interminable until you give in to them. Suppressing a thought feeling or sensation, including pain ultimately increases it. Rather than trying to distract from or argue with the unpleasant thoughts, feelings or urges, mindfulness simply makes the thoughts, feelings or urges less important. If we just let an urge be – non judgmentally – without feeding it or fighting it (Fighting it is just another way of feeding it anyway) then it will crest subside and pass. Of course they come back again but over a period of time. However each time you overcome a bout of cravings they become less intense and less frequent if we don’t feed the urges and if we don’t give in to them. If we have a slip and give into the impulse we will have increased urges for a while. However we can still apply urge surfing all over again. Urge surfing Practice Watch the breath. Don’t alter it. Let the breath breathe itself. Notice your thoughts. Without judging them, feeding them or fighting them gently bring your attention back to the breath Notice the craving experience as it affects the body. Focusing on one area where the urge is being felt and noticing what is occurring. Notice quality, position, boundaries & intensity of the sensation Notice how these change with the in-breath and out-breath Repeating the focusing process with each part of the body involved. Be curious about what occurs and notice changes over time. The key is replacing the fearful wish that craving will go away with interest in our experience. When we do this we notice the cravings change, crest and subside like waves in the ocean. In this way it becomes more manageable. This is not difficult, as there are many kinds of urges like urges to scratch, to move, to eat, to drink, to go to the toilet etc. When we reflect on this as it becomes clear that all adults including those who consider they have difficult to control repetitive problem behaviours, have the capacity to have urges come and go without acting on them. After all, unless we are physically ill we can all control our need to go to the toilet! What is important is that the sensation or thought of an urge is not one solid unchanging entity. The increased level of mindful awareness of these is capable of noticing how the urge has changed dramatically. Have faith in the process to practice urge surfing successfully.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Solapur
There are certain foods that can help in avoiding onset of alzheimers dementia. Foods containing high levels of anti oxidants and omega acids are beneficial in general for nervous system. But in case of advanced cases of alzheimers, along with healthy lifestyle and good food habits, medications are necessary. Currently there is no evidence of complete cure of alzheimers either by medications or with use of any particular food items. Currents medications however prolong the progress of illness and improves quality of life for the patients.

Ways to Treat Depression Caused by Gender Identity Disorder

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Sexologist, Mumbai
Ways to Treat Depression Caused by Gender Identity Disorder

Gender Identity Disorder or Gender Dysphoria causes the patient to think that he or she is does not belong to the gender that may be physically apparent. This condition may cause severe stress, anxiety and depression.

Let us find out more about the depressive conditions caused due to this disorder and how this depression may be treated:

  1. Trapped: One of the most common emotions that a patient experiences while suffering from this condition includes feeling trapped in the wrong body. For example, while all the physical and visual signs may point at the male status of the patient, he may actually feel that he is a female. In such cases, the patient often feels like the body does not reflect his or her true gender. This can cause the patient to feel trapped, which in turn can lead to feelings like restlessness.
  2. Anxiety: Once the restlessness sets in, general dissatisfaction grows, which is the earliest sign of anxiety. The intense discomfort experienced by the patient can lead to severe anxiety where he or she shuns normal functioning and socialising. The patient may choose to stay alone and isolated in the long run, which can fuel further anxiety when the patient is faced with social situations like school, work and others.
  3. Mismatch: The depression and anxiety also comes from a sense of mismatch that the patient may feel when it comes to the gender in the mind and the physical gender that may be parlayed with the genitals as well as other areas of the body and development. This mismatch will need to be addressed in order to get to the root of the depression and anxiety experienced by the patient.
  4. Talk Therapy: Talk therapy is one of the most common and popular forms of therapy that has been used for this kind of disorder. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT is one of the most effective forms of therapy used for conditions like depressions due to GID or any other kind of depression and anxiety. With this kind of therapy, the patient can be brought face to face with the problem before reprogramming the attitude, thinking and resulting behaviour of the patient to be more accepting of the condition. Also, any physical therapy will have to backed by it. 
  5. Trans Sexuality and Homosexuality: With the help of therapy, one of the most important and initial barriers that will have to brought down is the opinion of the patient. The patient will have to be made aware of the fact that his or her problem does not convert his or her into a transsexual or homosexual. This condition is not the same a sexual orientation issue.

Lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Here's what you can do: Eat healthy foods. Eat a healthy diet. Try the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. A lower sodium level — 1,500 milligrams (mg) a day — is appropriate for people 51 years of age or older, and individuals of any age who are black or who have hypertension, diabetes or chronic kidney disease. Otherwise healthy people can aim for 2,300 mg a day or less. While you can reduce the amount of salt you eat by putting down the saltshaker, you generally should also pay attention to the amount of salt that's in the processed foods you eat, such as canned soups or frozen dinners. Maintain a healthy weight. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. If you're overweight, losing even 5 pounds (2.3 kilograms) can lower your blood pressure. Increase physical activity. Regular physical activity can help lower your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems and keep your weight under control. For most healthy adults, the Department of Health and Human Services recommends that you get at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic activity, or a combination or moderate and vigorous activity. Aim to do muscle-strengthening exercises at least two days a week. Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. For healthy adults, that means up to one drink a day for women of all ages and men older than age 65, and up to two drinks a day for men age 65 and younger. One drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. If you smoke, ask your doctor to help you quit. Manage stress. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Home blood pressure monitoring can help you keep closer tabs on your blood pressure, show if medication is working, and even alert you and your doctor to potential complications. Home blood pressure monitoring isn't a substitute for visits to your doctor, and home blood pressure monitors may have some limitations. Even if you get normal readings, don't stop or change your medications or alter your diet without talking to your doctor first. If your blood pressure is under control, you may be able to make fewer visits to your doctor if you monitor your blood pressure at home. Practice relaxation or slow, deep breathing. Practice taking deep, slow breaths to help relax. There are some devices available that promote slow, deep breathing. However, it's questionable whether these devices have a significant effect on lowering your blood pressure.
