National Anti-Drug Addiction Day - Overcoming Addiction

M. D. Psychiatry, Diploma in Psychological Medicine-DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
National Anti-Drug Addiction Day - Overcoming Addiction

Drug addiction is one of the social menaces and in most people, what starts off as a result of peer pressure and trying to be cool ends up affecting lives significantly. It is not just social, but also affects financial, physical, emotional, and social well-being. The small periods of happiness given by the drug is followed by months and years of torment.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has identified that drug addiction causes chemical and structural changes in the brain, leading to dangerous and self-destructive behaviours. The brain’s response to stimulus like pleasure, joy, happiness, and pain are altered with constant drug abuse. For instance, the neurotransmitter called dopamine, which makes one feel good, is usually produced by the brain in small amounts. However, drugs increase this level to 2 to 10 times more, making the person feel extremely high and happy. Since the body is unable to reach the highest level of happiness on its own, the dependency on these drugs to feel good increases.

Repeated use of the drugs leads to increased dependency, wherein the brain refuses to feel good without reaching those high levels of dopamine. The issue is mostly seen in teenagers and young adults but can be seen in any age group.

October 2 is recognised as National Anti-Drug Addiction Day and nationwide campaigns and drives are done to help people overcome addiction. One of the main reasons a drive this size is required is because of the social stigma attached to the problem. Most families shun away from recognising it as a problem that can be easily treated, and so the affected person is sucked deeper into the problem.

Overcoming addiction: One of the main success factors for treating addiction is for the affected person to recognise that he or she is addicted and needs to get rid of the problem.

  1. There are national toll-free helplines that are set up, which can guide through the whole program. This way, if required, anonymity is maintained and support for overcoming addiction is increased.
  2. It involves a group effort involving the affected person, family and friends, medical and clinical personnel, and counsellors in some cases.
  3. Cognitive behavioural therapy: The person is made conscious of the change in behaviour and the way drugs affect it. Healthier patterns to be happy and joyful are discussed.
  4. In most cases, the underlying reason for reaching out to drugs needs to be addressed also to prevent relapse.
  5. Group therapies where the person makes friends who have faced similar issues and overcome the problem. This increases their accountability and commitment to getting rid of the problem.

Drug abuse is a national social menace and needs more free admittance and management.

Generalised anxiety disorder usually doesn't result form any brain pathology so MRI or CT scans might turn out to be normal, even if you go for them. Management of generalised anxiety includes medications and practising relaxation exercises in cohesion so that relapses are prevented. Also presence of other psychological problems or hormonal disturbances need to be evaluated too. Consult a psychiatrist in your vicinity for treatment. For online management and queries regarding the same you may consult me online with details of treatments done so far. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, it appears to me that you did not get enough respect and appreciation from your loved ones while growing up. Presently you are searching for gratification from masturbation. Masturbation is healthy when done to relieve intense sexual urge. But if you are doing this as a habit, then it will be harmful for you. Please contact a counsellor who will help you have higher self esteem and confidence. Once you gain that you will not have social anxiety and depression. You also will be able to better control on your mind. Good luck.

Lithium is usually given in Bipolar disorder and in some psychiatric disorder like depression, psychosis etc as augmenting agent. But a specific blood level is required to produce its effect. Also you have to know about its toxicity. Drink plenty of water. Always ask doctors prior to taking other medication especially pain killers. Perform regular test for serum lithium level.

The symptoms of menopause include: ? Inhibition of menstrual phase of the reproductive cycle. ? Vaginal dryness. ? Loss of hair on the head and sometimes, spur of hairs on face. ? Mood swings. ? Hot flashes or night sweating. ? Abnormal weight gain. The symptoms of menopause can be highly distressing and may be alleviated by consuming a balanced and proper diet. Some of the foods that must be included in the diet of women undergoing menopause are melons, bananas, salmon, cabbage, cucumber, seaweeds, pumpkin, and apricots. There are also some foods that should be avoided or consumed in restricted quantities during this period. The foods that must be limited in the diet of menopausal women are: ? Potatoes must be restricted in diet. ? The amount of intake of caffeine must be limited and as such, the consumption of coffee, tea, and colas must be checked. Green tea can be a substitute for coffee. ? Refined foods must also be restricted in the diet. The most common refined food used in the households is refined oil like sunflower oil. It is recommended that you substitute these oils with unprocessed oils like wheat germ oil, virgin olive oil and flax oil. ? Women undergoing menopause must also cut back on their consumption of spicy foods. These foods may cause an inflammation of the lower part of the reproductive tubes, thereby aggravating the symptoms of menopause. ? Chocolates must also be restricted in the diet of women during menopause. ? Women in this phase of their lives are also advised to cut down on the intake of raw bran as this may inhibit calcium absorption leading to a weakening of the skeletal system. ? It is also recommended that you restrict the consumption of saturated fats like cheese and butter. ? Limit your intake of alcohol. ? Women must also limit their intake of salt as excessive consumption of salt may cause increases in blood pressure, palpitation, and other heart ailments.

Dear user. I can understand. Thinking is a complex mechanism and Your mind's job is to think. If you allow you to think without having control over it, it will always wander into negative territories. You should train yourself to keep your thoughts under your control. Cognitive therapy will help you in this case. Take care.

Never. Sleeping pills are also addictive and after some time you start taking both together and it is more dangerous. You should take deaddiction therapy. You need will power to stop drinking. Take care.

The hair fall has nothing to do with alcohol consumption per se. You should look at other causes and stress factors that may be causing this problem. Even if you are drinking alcohol from stress, you could be precipitating this effect. You should meet a dermatologist and s/he will guide you as to the cause and treatment approaches.

your friend father died because of heart attack. but where is reality it may comes to you. there is no relation about what you feel and think about it. there is no blood relation and there is no chance of coming to you. you unnecessarily imagine yourself and feelling yourself. it is called immaturity. for doctor treats aids patients some patients died suddenly. then doctor not feel himself. if infected my death also comes like that. he never feel like that. he done his job very well. remaining factors depends on patients condition. no doctor should not perform their duties if they think like you. it is all psychological disturbances. dont feel and think about this matter. be share and feel happily. be spend most of the time with happy movements with remaining friends. be take proper food in time. dont feel nervous. dont think too much about the health aspects. be do your duties in perfect manner. be sociable and be happy all the time. ok all the best.

Good morning sir, i smoke & drink alcohol from 2 years. Drinking is some times but smoking is daily 3-4 times how to avoid smoke please reply me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The combination of drinking and smoking is very harmful, especially for your liver. It increases your chances of developing cirrhosis of the live. This combination will also harm your libido over a period of time and you will lose your erectile capacity. Of the two smoking is more harmful because the effects are gradual and will not be revealed to you until it becomes too bad. I have given advice earlier to some people and I recommend that you read and follow them meticulously. Sometimes these addictive habits mask an underlying problem which may make you susceptible to become enslaved to the habit. Work with a counselor to identify that and deal with those issues to completely and successfully come off the addictions.

Prefer keeping yourself it is not good sign of health. You are not caused for lost. Then why do you be depressed. It is nature fundamental thing no one is not exceptional. Everyone must obey the natures law. It is common in everyone life if closed one lost then some time there is a chance of depressive thoughts. In that time as a matured person we should control our thoughts. Do not be alone. Feel and share it your closed one. Better to busy yourself. If any chance please go any other place. Please visit new places like temples etc. Please remove the memories of the lost one. Please spend most of the time with your family members. Be sociable. Be happy always. Best of luck. Ok.
