I have reduce my smoking I have to quit it tell me certain measures to quit smoking.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine.

I had a break up and when I am riding bike isee other couple I think that may my girl and my minds gets disturb bcoz of this I dnt like go out what to do please tell me?

Psychologist, Madurai
It means that your break up is done only in term of words, your mind still wants to posses her. In other words you want to be her owner. And this kind of possesiveness or ownership may have directed you in such a way that you may have set some restrictions on her freedom and that might be the cause of conflicts between you and your girl leading to a break up. If my view is right, you think, do initiate to express your apologies to her. You will feel relaxed. One thing is certain in this world, all the spiritual teachings say" all the pains and miseries we experiece have their origin in possesiveness"

Dear, if you tired very fast and feeling weakness. Then you will definitely recover from weakness by following these very useful tips. * you should take proper balanced diet first. That means you have to take vegetables, milk, chapattis or rice, butter / cream, cereals (daals) or cheese every day. Very important thing, do not miss or skip your meals at any cost and take meals on time. * proper 6-8 hours sleep is very important. If your sleep is less than 6 hours, then you feel tired very early. So complete your sleep. * do breathing execises daily in morning & evening. Just sit down in peaceful place, close your eyes, take deep and long breaths in and out. Do it atleast for 10-15 minutes daily. You can also do pranayams like anulom vilom for better results. *take a walk, in first walk normally for 10-15 minutes for 15 days. You can do it on treadmill also. * you can take ashvagandha churn of baidyanath 1 teaspoon with milk daily for 2 months atleast to get your strength back. * check out your haemoglobin level in 3 months, if it is low you get tired early. So get treatment of low haemoglobin (anemia). If you have any disease like asthma /diabetes / hypertension, then get complete treatment of them. * avoid all fast foods and habit of smoking or drinking. You surely get great strength and recover from weakness by following these important things.

I am 25 years old, I had my first panic attack on 2nd oct 2016. (my grandma has passed away in sept 2016 at age of 76 she suicided, yet no one knows the reason but she used to say I ll die soon before her death and doc gave her depression tablets, they was no use. I was fine for a month, later I had a small argument with my husband where I told you depress me always. I was thinking over it and that day was my first panic attack took place like I started thinking am I depressed and what even I ll suicide that day onwards till nov 28 I used to get sweat hands and shortness breathing n all. I visited a psychiatrist he suggested me nexito 10 mg after a week I refuse to take as the reviews on net showed they r addictable. I do not want to rely on tabs anyway. Later I joined meditation and zumba and my anxiety reduced to a great extent but thoughts of death and if I see old people I get a feeling they ll die soon how r they still happy? How r everyone happy as they know they ll die one day. That time I get a short breathing prob for secs and m fine in notime. But at times I get a feeling m not enjoying my life thinking about all this cause before I was a brave girl a university topper never feared for anything and now I get a thought its better to die instead of such disturbance n very next sec I say to myself m not a coward no matter what I ll search for solution. Now can I overcome it forever without medication? Or else if I take nexito will I get addicted to it? And r they any chances of getting anxiety again in future? N hows hypnosis or nlp help me?

You are topper and bright student you should trust the process of psychiatric treatment. For sure you have anxiety and it could be Obsessive thoughts also ruminating about past and fear of death. You need to check with a psychiatrist again and give full account of your symptoms. The medication will go on for an year like antibiotics have course so do medication in psychiatry and if you leave in between you may relapse. These medication ate not at all addictive and have no side effects the only effect it will have is your betterment. NLP hypnosis has little role in your treatment. You can however go for psychotherapy cognitive behavioral therapy for ehich you need to consult a psychologist. You can consult me for same. It seems you have co morbid depression also get yourself treated asap. All the best.

All about brain exercises

M.D Psychiatry , DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
All about brain exercises

The brain is not a stagnant realm fed with a granted quota of intelligence and memory at birth. It is always in a state of flux. Exercising your brain in various ways accelerates its ability to perform better. It is in your hands to have a sharper take on situations and occurrences. Playing games that require brainstorming, solving quizzes, crosswords or playing chess makes you feel rejuvenated and tired at the same time; the reason being activated brain cells. A healthy brain will affect your life decisions positively and you probably will think rightly before you leap.

Tips to exercise those brain cells:

1. Meditate and calm your mind: Ten minutes of meditation each day can help you get over anxiety. When your mind is at peace you think out pros and cons with enhanced insight. This composure reflects in each of your actions. Meditation demands your brain to be quiet when it is accustomed to work; you therefore have greater control over it.
     
2. Music can improve your brain abilities: Music is the best antidote for a sloppy brain. Music excites the neurons healing a bruised memory. It gifts you with clarity of thought. Apart from listening to music one must try to play a musical instrument. Teaching yourself things puts your mind through a strict regimen of constructive activities.
   
3. Take out time to learn a new language: We are paralyzed the minute our brain gives up. Due to several external and internal reasons each one of us is likely to suffer from cognitive disorders on being subjected to extreme pressure or shock. Trying to learn a new language motivate your brain cells to have a wider vocabulary, which further restricts your chances of brain damage.   

4. Mental mathematics could better your intelligence: Calculators, computers and phones are ridding us of our ability to compute individual data. Computation and consolidation of data helps your mind to work faster with precision. So, you now know those lessons on mental mathematics in childhood were actually the key to a well-rounded brain. 

5. Think of something novel: The more the number of neurons the merrier is your brain. Take pains to direct your mind on a novel track. Thinking beyond what is given and expected helps your brain grow new neurons. It builds up your creativity letting you discover more of your capabilities.

Dear Lybrate user No one is perfect in this world Everyone get nervous at some point of life ,some get nervous during Exam, Some get nervous during fights, Some get nervous in front of teachers it only depends on our approach, so its natural phenomenon But it does't mean that it cannot be change ,as I mentioned earlier it depends on your approach only. Think anyone as, as human whether boy or girl. When you approach to any girl think that she is also like you don't give extra importance to this topic, its time to focus on your career ,when you will be good in your career then you will get confidence automatically, practice to talk with yourself in front of mirror it will increase your confidence, motivate yourself, set some topics for everyday and try to complete your topic in the given time it will boost your confidence as well as will help to complete your course. You can take help of any counsellor regarding this ,if you need my help you can contact me .good luck.

I am very short tempered and prone to shouting. Male. 21 yrs.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Shouting is a form of expression but if it is inappropriate you may cause more harm than good. You need to identify why you get so angry and throw this fit around as an expression. If this is a recent phenomenon, then it will be easy to identify what caused that disturbance and it can be sorted out. If it is from your childhood and you have suffered this reaction for a long time, then you will need to go back into childhood and find out what went wrong to make you so upset. Your parents will be able to help locate the cause. You can then go to a counselor and learn about anger management, which is not to control your anger but to learn to express it in appropriate ways. You must also examine yourself to see if you act angry whenever you are scared. This then means that you have chosen to escalate anger over your fear for some reason: it may have to do with feeling more powerful with anger than with fear or you may have received more attention by acting angry. Work on these issues and come out of this behavior through some counseling.

This marriage issue needs resolution immediately otherwise, you will continue to experience an anger-related depression. If this is let be as it is now, you can go into worse conditions and will have trouble coping later. You could take your husband to a marriage counselor and get some help. In the meantime kindly do some of the following: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I am 28 year old Female and Is memory loss always a part of aging? How much loss is considered normal? What Should I do now?

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, great question! memory loss should not be considered as a part of aging. Minimal memory loss occurs normally with age, but if it is creating problems it is certainly abnormal. At age of 28, apparent memory loss is usually related to psychiatric problems such as anxiety and depression rather than neurological problems. The good news is it is completely treatable and reversible. Please consult a psychiatrist!

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. Don't worry. Still if you insist that you have memory problems, we need to conduct a memory test online. Take care.

You are first of fooling around with medications: if the doctor has prescribed it then it was for a good reason. If you have attacks in the future the doctor will certainly give you more. Panic attacks are fear based, and you will tend to exaggerate the response to the stimulus. What happened when these attacks started may have some bearing on your state. The other possibility is that your constitution may have undergone a bit of change favoring the negative side. If you have been on prolonged stress quite unaware to yourself, then it is possible that that stress may have lowered your defenses. Any which way you look at it, your response to fear is not normal and therefore the panic. Work with a counselor: medication is not enough to help you process these emotions and to deal with it so that it does not escalate in this manner. You will probably not show any signs of medical problems because the effects have not yet reached physical proportions. It will though, if this situation is not brought under control. The quicker you work on this in therapy, the easier life is going to be. Constant and persistent stress will lower your immune system that you may develop other complications. You seem keen to sort this out and that is good motivation. Now work at it with hammer and tongs and sort out the fear. For your constitution I advise a lot of exercise, meditation, eat healthily, sleep adequately, pray with faith, love people and yourself, and be positive. Combine medication with counseling and you will get best results. If you want to be free of medication then in counseling you will develop new skills and techniques to deal with life's issues and can come off of medicines for good.

I could not sleep at last few months and couldn't eat anything. Suddenly now I'm sleeping too much like around 15-16 hours a day and eat a lot which I find is excess but I cannot control. I have been shouting and yelling at my family members colleagues unnecessarily and I lose temper very easily. I'm getting irritated with very petty issues and over react. The biggest part is I have my college final exams just starting very soon and I'm unable to concentrate at all. Either I feel dizzy or sleepy or I keep on thinking about other stuffs.

Success of Relationship

FRHS, Ph.D Neuro , MPT - Neurology Physiotherapy, D.Sp.Med, DPHM (Health Management ), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Chennai

The success of every relationship is built on selective acts of blindness and deafness and bouts of forgetfulness

Honesty and transparency are laudable qualities in principle but when translated to reality the blinding light they throw on families and relationships is too harsh a glare to bear up to. Very few can take that kind of blinding truth in their stride
