My father (age 55) having a problem of drinking alcohol. He also patient of diabetes and liver problems but he is not quitting drinking habit. Is there any solution to prevent my father to drinking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Ideally, the decision to want to quit must come from the addict himself. In this case, there is a danger to his life (being diabetic and already having liver damage), if he continues, and therefore the decision must be made by responsible others. If this is difficult for you, do get the counsel and help of an elderly relative whom he respects and let him do the convincing. If he does not cooperate, then take the decision and call in the rehabilitation center to just take him away. He may be what people refer to as an addict on ?skid row? i.E. Only death can stop him ? 20% of alcoholics are on skid row, world over. Knowing that someone else responsible has to make that decision for him and will do him the favor of a life-saving course of action, do so without any hesitation. Do not feel any guilt about doing this because you will surely save his life, and perhaps his health.

What Is Bipolar Disorder?

MD - Psychiatry, Diploma in Child & Adolescent Psychology , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Pune
What Is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder is the medical term for extreme depression and mood swings that are abnormal or too frequent. The mood swings may go from depression to mania, where the symptoms may border on suicidal behaviour, and other such dangerous tendencies. Find out more about Bipolar Disorder with this article.

Main Symptoms: The major symptoms of Bipolar Disorder are hypomania and depression. The patient may swing between these two states on a sudden basis. The dramatic mood swings do not have a set routine or pattern and can strike at any given time. The patient may be in a certain kind of state for a prolonged period like many weeks and months, or can even be in a certain state for a matter of days, before the next mood strikes. 

While hypomania is a very severe outcome of Bipolar Disorder, many people do not recognise it as a problem until it gets out of hand. This state can actually make a person feel high on energy where the patient may also achieve all-time highs in terms of productivity and a sense of wellbeing. This state can switch to a state of depression and hopelessness within a matter of days or weeks.

Types: Bipolar Disorder can be categorised into many types, depending on the level and severity of the mood swings. To begin with, Bipolar Disorder has full blown cycles of ups and downs in the mood of the patient. The up mood never really manifests into full fledged mania. This is a more mild form of the disease and the symptoms are often missed. 

Rapid Cycling is another form of Bipolar Disease where a patient may experience at least four or even more episodes of major mood swings within a period of 12 months. Further, Mixed Bipolar is a form of the disease where the depression and elevation may come together or in rapid succession of each other. Cyclothymia is another mild form of this mood disorder and comes with subtle changes in one's mood.

Diagnosis and Treatment: While the diagnosis is done by a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist with the help of an examination of the symptoms, the treatment includes long term counselling and therapy as well as medication for more severe cases. The drugs and therapy aim at making the mind more stable with psychotherapy. Drugs like lithium or benzodiazepine can also be prescribed to control sleeplessness and hyperactivity as well as hostility and suicidal tendencies.

Talking and discussing things are the foremost methods used by psychiatrists when it comes to treating this disease. Persistent mood alterations must be run past a specialist in the field.

Hi this is Arif, I am 22 years old. I started smoking recently from the last past 2 years. And I regularly smoke approx 20 cigarettes a day. I feel their might be some problem with my lung and I want to make sure if everything is alright and if not then I will quit this habit right away. So I was planning to take some test that might tell me how my lungs are. So wanted some advice what to door for which test should I go forward with. Thank and Regards Arif Khan.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should not wait to have a problem with your lungs before quitting. You are already smoking too much for a 22-year old. You need to visit a pulmonologist to check your lungs, immediately. You may check these lung cancer signs to know something as a layman: Lung Cancer Signs and Symptoms (Sourced from Medicinenet. Com) Lung cancer is the most common cancer in men and the fifth most common in women, even causing more cancer-related deaths in women than breast cancer. The incidence of lung cancer is strongly correlated with cigarette smoking, with about 90% of lung cancers arising as a result of tobacco use. Symptoms of lung cancer are varied dependent upon the exact location of the tumor and the extent of its spread. A person with lung cancer may have the following kinds of symptoms: •No symptoms - Up to 25% of people who get lung cancer do not have any symptoms when the cancer is found. In these cases the cancer is first discovered on a routine chest X-ray or computerized tomography (CT) scan performed for another reason. •Symptoms related to the cancer - The growth of the cancer and invasion of the lung and surroundings may lead to symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, chest pain, and coughing up blood (hemoptysis). If the cancer has invaded nerves, it may cause shoulder pain that travels down the outside of the arm (called Pancoast syndrome) or paralysis of the nerves traveling to the vocal cords that leads to hoarseness. Invasion of the esophagus may lead to difficulty swallowing (dysphagia). If a large airway is obstructed, collapse of a portion of the lung may occur and cause infections (abscesses, pneumonia) in the obstructed area. •Symptoms related to metastasis (spread to other organs) - Lung cancer that has spread to the bones may produce excruciating pain at the sites of bone involvement. Cancer that has spread to the brain may cause a number of neurologic symptoms that may include blurred vision, headaches, seizures, confusion or altered thought processes, or symptoms of stroke. •Paraneoplastic symptoms - Lung cancers frequently are accompanied by so-called paraneoplastic syndromes that result from production of hormone-like substances by the tumor cells that are released into the blood. A common paraneoplastic syndrome associated with one type of lung cancer is the production of a hormone called adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) by the cancer cells, leading to over secretion of another hormone, cortisol, by the adrenal glands (Cushing's syndrome). •Nonspecific symptoms - Nonspecific symptoms seen with many cancers, including lung cancers, include weight loss, weakness, and fatigue. It is important always to consult a doctor if a person develops the symptoms associated with lung cancer, in particular: •A new persistent cough or worsening of an existing chronic cough •Blood in the sputum •Persistent bronchitis or repeated respiratory infections •Chest pain •Unexplained weight loss and/or fatigue •Breathing difficulties such as shortness of breath or wheezing.

I am in love with a boy. We are together since 5 year. I informed my parents about this boy that I love this boy and I wanted to marry him. My parents are not happy with this relationship. I thing is they have received one letter in that someone unknown person has written he is not a good guy. Please keep your girl stay away from him. But in 5 year of relationship I didn't find out anything negative about him. He is too honest. One more thing I want to share is he has drunk 2/3 times and said bad words to me and shouted at me. I forgot it because I know its his love nothing else. The thing is I had a past. And I just move on and I share everything to him that I was in relationship. I didn't hide anything to him.because I truly love him and I want to spend my whole life with him. About 7 month before I appeared for an interview in my ex office where his office. I never mix my professional life and personal life. But I didn't inform my bf about this I thought he gets angry on me and wouldn't allow me for an interview and it is such a good company so I don't want to loss chance. I told him that I am going for an interview in this company and he always sees my ex updates so he find out that I am going in same company where he is working. I even informed this in my home that I am going for an interview where my ex is working because I have no bad feeling for him. But after thinking a lot although I am selected I said know because I don't want my relationship mess up. On that day in night he called me and ask what you r hiding with me? I said everything and he said bad words to me. Said that there is no difference between you and character less girl. Again I forgot and say sorry to him. Now thing is I forgot everything and I want to marry him. I am trying to convince my parents. because I know I am not with him that is why he is upset once I will with him he will not do such a thing. But after trying 3/4 times my parents are not happy and he is asking for court marriage which I don't want because I don't want to hurt my parents. I am trying to convince my parents but I am not able to convince them so he is not talking with me properly. I am too much in depression. I can't tell this to anyone. Please let me know what should I do. Please.

It s very simple, you are blinded by love to this emotionally unstable fellow. Your parents r right, and you should thank the guy who has informed your parents. If you marry this fellow, you might regret for life. Do not be blinded by love, and pray sanity prevails upon your mind. After marriage this fellow will be uncotrollable. Suspicoiusness and possesseivness by him is not love, but his low self esteem, paranoia and unstale emotions. You will not realize this now, be careful. All the best.

Hi sir am male 24yrs my problem is I cannot perform eye contact with opposite person even my members also especially in front of women's my eyes goes sexual parts of opposite women at the time she do you listening or not I feel shame how can I overcome this bad habit thank you sir.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Obviously, this conveys to the female your line of focus, and it is really very embarrassing. You probably have a very narrow view of women and I do not know where you picked up that trait. You are objectifying women and seeing only their carnal side. At some time this obsession with their sexual endowments will drive you into an impulsive act and get you into serious trouble. My advice to you is to get a sex education from some competent counselor and understand that women are more than their sexual value. Apart from that they have so many more interesting sides to them that makes life very exciting and interesting. Sex has so many dimensions to it too: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual. These need to be understood in their true measure and it will surprise you that minus those dimensions you are looking at a telescopic view of a wonderful being made for man! when talking to anyone (and more so to girls), it is very important to make eye contact. Such a person can be trusted to be open and honest, and they will appreciate your confidence in your straight forward look. Girls will be attracted to such people and will want to trust you. With your current behavior, you will only drive them away, and this frustration may lead you to become a person who imposes himself on them reluctantly. Then the very thing that you desire so much will become near impossible to attain and elusive.

Dear sir n mam, mera ek friend hai woh drink bahut karta hai usse drink ko avoid karne k liye kya karna hoga.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by himself because he has become addicted to alcohol and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that he can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems, and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the wife and family’s consent.

Dear lybrate-user, having sex with buffalo can not cause hiv. If he is still worried he can go any nearby hiv testing centre and get free blood test for hiv I and ii.
