I am a smoker from last 5 years and I want to leave this habit as soon as possible. I am taking the support of gym exercises and tea coffee for leaving this habit and also I succeeded to reduce it in last few days. Few days ago, I was using near about 16-17 cigarettes per day and now I reduced it to 4-5 per day but now I want to get rid of it as soon as possible. Is there any possible way for it?

Tobacco and nicotine are intoxicants which are bad for body, mind and well-being. One should be ready to realize the bad effects, then one can avoid cigarettes by engaging mind and body in more constructive activities.

I took an online test which said I have medium chances of suffering from bipolar disorder. How do I know if it is true?

By consulting with a psychiatrist. Most of these online tests are not validated, so do not worry. Also, it is difficult to predict whether someone would suffer in future from bipolar, so do not worry.

I recently read that researchers believe certain foods might cure Alzheimer’s disease. Is this true? If so, which foods do this and how much would you have to consume to get the benefits?

As a neurologist, I can tell no food can cure alzheimers. It can be managed and progession can be slowed with medicines.

I am in the habit of smoking and due to which I tired soon when I run or play so please help me to leave this habit.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The carbon monoxide in tobacco smoke reduces the oxygen carrying capacity of the red blood cells and this will lead to easy exhaustion, fatigue, poor stamina and tiredness. You must quit immediately. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You 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. You 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 yourself 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 you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

What is Mental Health?

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
What is Mental Health?

Mental Health is - mental/emotional wellbeing. Being mentally healthy means being peaceful from within, being able to deal with life's challenges and being able to manage emotions and relationships, etc.

There is a lot of misunderstanding about "mental health" and 60% of mentally sick or disturbed people are not taken to doctors or other mental health professionals. Instead, they are taken to astrologers, or tantriks. Some are even punished for being crazy.

In today's highly stressful world people do not have time to think and plan their lives. Because of modern lifestyles and nuclear families people do not have outlets to share their feelings and express their intense emotions.

Sometimes emotional wounds like deep hurts, insults, neglect, shaming, physical and/or sexual abuse in childhood, may cause Personality or Behavioural disorders.

A person who loses temper for any small thing, or who is suspicious all the time or the one who breaks down or cries at slightest provocation, or who is jealous and possessive to the extent of being obsessed, or who is anxious all the time etc. needs to understand his/her feelings and find out the root cause of such feelings and behaviours.

Here are a few tips to develop/improve your mental health:

  1. Learn to express your feelings assertively
  2. Become aware of your own feelings and emotions
  3. Understand how to manage your emotions on day to day basis (anger, fear, jealousy etc)
  4. Review and nurture your relationships and infuse new life into them
  5. Periodically get rid of past baggage, deep hurts, spoilt relationships, unresolved issues, by resolving them in your mind
  6. Have a daily routine where your own needs and others' needs are balanced
  7. Reward yourself
  8. Develop positive attitude: focus on good events in life and positive affirmations.
  9. Introspect how often you succumb to negative emotions.
  10. Keep company of positive people
  11. Devise own methods for de-stressing
  12. Keep away from any kind of substance abuse.
  13. Have some routine exercise regime.
  14. Do not hesitate to seek professional help from - Counsellor/Psychiatrist/Psychologist

Pay attention to your Mental Health and enjoy life!!

Thoughts could be improved by changing the way you think, act ,react to a situation/problem. It also depends on your mood state of the day, your surroundings. These have direct connection with your medical condition and how you take it and accept it. With ailment its difficult to accept it as it is. There will be a mind question - why me/ will linger around. When you expect something or take the expectation of the near and dears as it is and not able to accomplish, there comes self esteem issues. Its part and parcel of your medical condition too. Acceptance and trying to reduce those negative thoughts might help you. Read on mindfulness which will help to tackle and improve your mood state in day to day condition. But you need to follow the steps diligently.

Hi, I will suggest you ask him to prepare much in advance. Lack of preparation could be a possible reason of anxiety and fear. The more he is thorough with his syllabus, the more confident he will be. Also, ask him to study in small chunks and for small durations; to take up bits of each chapter instead of doing everything altogether. This way he has a lot to retain because of which only some information is stored. He can try to simplify the matter given and can produce it in his own way. Marks shall be awarded for concept and not bookish language. He can also practice doing mock exams, ensure they are timed. He should feel as if he is in an examination hall and do it sincerely without taking much breaks and without any kind of disturbances. Ask him to analyse his thoughts post this mock session. This should help, come back later for more help.

This has often been the problem with treatment: you must combine medication with counseling to get the best results. It is still not too late to go for counseling. Normally, anxiety goes with depression and it looks like some counseling may have helped with that. Anxiety is an abnormal form of fear. So some emotional therapy will certainly help her to deal with the​ fear.

Hello lybrate-user, yes this may be an illness, genaralized anxiety disorder. In this illness the person is constantly preoccupied with worries and tension leading to distress and anxiety most of the time. If this starts effecting one's life, treatment is required in form of medicine or counselling therapy.

There are steps you can help you managing day to day stressful conditions and take to feel better. 1. Be realistic: If you feel overwhelmed by some activities (yours and/or your family's), learn to say NO! Eliminate an activity that is not absolutely necessary. You may be taking on more responsibility than you can or should handle. If you meet resistance, give reasons why you're making the changes. Be willing to listen to other's suggestions and be ready to compromise. 2. Shed the 'superman/superwoman' urge: No one is perfect, so don't expect perfection from yourself or others. Ask yourself, 'What really needs to be done?' How much can I do? Is the deadline realistic? What adjustments can I make?' Don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it. 3. Take one thing at a time: For people under tension or stress, their day-to-day workload can sometimes seem unbearable. The best way to cope with this feeling of being overwhelmed is to take one task at a time. Make a list of things you need to get done and start with one task. Once you accomplish that task, choose the next one. The positive feeling of 'checking off' tasks is very satisfying. It will motivate you to keep going. 4. Share your feelings: A conversation with a friend lets you know that you are not the only one having a bad day. Stay in touch with friends and family. Ask them how they have dealt with a similar situation that may be 'stressing you out.' Let them provide love, support and guidance. Don't try to cope alone. 5. Be flexible: If you find you're meeting constant opposition in either your personal or professional life, rethink your position or strategy. Arguing only intensifies stressful feelings. Make allowances for other's opinions and be prepared to compromise. If you are willing to be accommodating, others may meet you halfway. Not only will you reduce your stress, you may find better solutions to your problems. Go easy with criticism. You may expect too much of yourself and others. Try not to feel frustrated, disappointed or even 'trapped' when another person criticises you. 6. Hobbies: Take a break from your worries by doing something you enjoy. Whether it's gardening or painting, schedule time to indulge your interest. Exercise: Regular exercise is a popular way to relieve stress. Twenty to thirty minutes of physical activity benefits both the body and the mind. Meditate: Just ten to twenty minutes of quiet reflection may bring relief from chronic stress as well as increase your tolerance to it. 7. Take Herbal Supplement: Herbs like Brahmi, Ashwagandha, Mandukparni, Shankhpuspi, Kaunch are very helpful in managing stress. These herbs work on the brain and help relax you which ultimately empowers you to manage your stressful conditions easily. There are many herbal supplements available in the market that can help you. 8. Consult the Doctor: If your stress level doesn't seem to improve with above tips, it may require more attention and consultation with an Expert. Or consult me on Lybrate privately

You have given the power to your boyfriend to ruin your life. You have accepted it and allowed everyone else to look at you with colored glasses. Its time you take charge of your life and prove all of them wrong. Start proving yourself. Do not give your boyfriend a chance to ruin your education too. Show them your capability.

Having frequent headaches and impaired memory problems are sign of burnout and stress. This commonly results in tension type of headaches and cognitive dysfunctions. Learn relaxation responses. Start with practising relaxation exercises like yoga, meditation, breathing exercises etc. For a definite solution and quicker relief you may consult a psychiatrist personally, online if you prefer. You may contact me online for any further queries and treatment.
