This is a serious problem and needs to be dealt with on immediate basis. But the technique should be such that he should not come to know about the fact that he is being treated. Otherwise it may lead to worsening. Please elaborate the addiction that he has and any other symptoms and diseases. Do not worry. This is manageable but immediate intervention is required.

Dear lybrate-user-you say you are a patient of depression- who has made the diagnosis? please see a qualified and trained psychologist at the earliest. Psychologist is an expert in diagnosis by psychological testing and counselling/psychotherapy i. E. Treatment without medicines. Psychiatrist gives medicines only. Treatment started earlier will control the problem very fast. Get proper diagnosis first followed by right treatment. Please get diagnosis confirmed first then take medicines as advised. It is possible that problem is psychological-then it will not be cured by medicines. You will need psychotherapy.

Yes, beer is good for health if you have 40 ml on daily basis. This will act like a medicine. This will increase your immune system and boost up your body and mind. Cigarette is more harmful than hookha so avoid hookah.

Iam 30 yrs old I daily smoke 15 cigarettes. I want to reduce this smoking number how should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are consuming way too many cigarettes per day! The way to go about quitting is to do completely: not just reducing it. That will not work. Let me take the liberty of assuming that you really mean that you want to stop smoking. On that assumption I must congratulate you because that is the foremost requirement to help you with that decision. But it is not easy because there are a lot of conditioning associated with it and these can be spread over the whole day and night!!! When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. You need to identify with why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. 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, for a little while. 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 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. To help process all of the above and to get support, go for counseling and persevere with it until you are completely over it.

Hi for a alcohol addiction for 3 yrs. When there is no solution then do you recommend giving crotonol?

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

I'm 21 year old female. I were chain smoker from last 6 years which usually helped me with my anxious nature and now I have left smoking. Its been more than one week and I have a severe headache since last 4 days. I am unable to prevent anxiety and also lacks in anger management. I'm not very social person. All this is leading to worsen my personal relations with everyone including my parents. I myself am a psychology student to after some research I have been taking nexito as a anti anxiety and sometimes zolfresh to sleep. What else do you suggest? Also.

Congrats for quitting the intoxicating habit of smoking. Never again fall victim to this habit of smoking which can spoil your life fully. Pl do not self-medicate without asking an expert. It is normal to experience withdrawal symptoms after quitting smoking but the bright side is greater than the withdrawal symptoms. With time, you would feel fresh, purer as the withdrawal symptoms dimish.

Im 21. N im smoker. N I wanna end of smoking. Because I lose my stamina. N im addict of smoking. Bt I want forget this. So how can I possible?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. 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 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 heartbeat 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 chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and 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.

Dear Doctor, My brother has schizophrenia for more than 8 years now. He is not able to get recovered from his situation. Though he is able to talk to us like a normal person, he is not able to take a responsibility. He is jobless and showing no interest in anything. I am worried about his future. He is under medication. But he is not getting better. Medicines control his hallucinations for the time being. But it's not curing him completely. Please advice.

Schizophrenia has a strong genetic component. And has poor prognosis. Complete cure may not be possible. You should all mold yourselves as per his world and instead of forcing him to accept your reality, let him make peace in his reality. Putting pressure will only worsen it. He may start working a little when you operate from his framework of perception.
