Smoking tobacco is a physical addiction and a psychological habit. The nicotine from cigarettes provides a temporary and addictive high. At the same time, the act of smoking is ingrained as a daily ritual. Sheesha trend is also at alarming rate because it is considered as fashion trend. People are mistaken that sheesha is not so harmful; it’s as harmful as cigarettes only masked in different flavors. Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins. Nicotine is highly addictive. Smoke containing nicotine is inhaled into the lungs, and the nicotine reaches your brain in just six seconds. As a cigarette is smoked, the amount of tar inhaled into the lungs increases, and the last puff contains more than twice as much tar as the first puff. The main reason behind smoking is as a solution to stress management. If you learn how to manage your stress via modern methods, you don’t need smoking to manage your stress. To quit smoking you need to stick to one strategy at one time and work vigorously on it. While some smokers successfully quit by going cold turkey, most people do better with a plan to keep themselves on track. A good plan addresses both the short-term challenge of quitting smoking and the long-term challenge of preventing relapse. It should also be tailored to your specific needs and smoking habits.

Aftermath of Alcoholism

https://drsadaqat.info/786-07کچھ مریض شراب چھوڑنے کے بعد اذیت میں مبتلا ہوجاتے ہیں۔ اُن کے اندر خالی پن اور مایوسی بھر جاتی ہے۔ انہیں سلگن بہت تنگ کرتی ہے۔ بظاہر وہ بھلے چنگے نظر آتے ہیں پر اندر سے اُن کا برا حال ہوتا ہے۔ ان کی چیخیں نکل رہی ہوتی ہیں لیکن کوئی سن نہیں پاتا کیونکہ یہ چیخیں بے آواز ہوتی ہیں۔ وہ زخموں سے چور ہوتے ہیں تاہم کوئی بھی یہ زخم دیکھ نہیں سکتا کیونکہ ان زخموں کے منہ باہر نہیں، اندر کی طرف ہوتے ہیں۔ہم سب شراب کی بربادی سے اچھی طرح آگاہ ہیں۔ اپنی فطرت کے لحاظ سے یہ جان لیوا بیماری ہے، تاہم شراب چھوڑ کر اس بیماری کے آگے بند باندھا جاسکتا ہے اور ساتھ ساتھ اُن تکلیفوں کا ازالہ کیا جاسکتا ہے جو شراب چھوڑنے کے بعد ہوتی ہیں۔ تین سو سال سے دنیا میں شراب کی بیماری کا علاج ہو رہا ہے تاہم پچھلے 75 سال میں لاکھوں بلا نوشوں نے نشے سے نجات کا معجزہ عام کردیا ہے، خصوصاً پچھلے 35 سال میں امراض قلب اور ذیابیطس کی طرح شرابیت کے علاج میں بھی انقلاب آ گیا ہے۔ یہ سب کچھ کہنا اچھا لگتا ہے لیکن اپنی جگہ ایک بہت تلخ حقیقت یہ بھی ہے کہ کچھ مریض دوبارہ شراب شروع کردیتے ہیں۔ بار بار شراب چھوڑنے اور پھر سے پینے کا چکر چلتا رہتا ہے، اُن کے حالات خراب ہوتے چلے جاتے ہیں، ان میں سے کچھ جان سے ہاتھ دھو بیٹھتے ہیں۔ اُن کے اہل خانہ تلخ یادوں کے ساتھ دکھ سہتے ہیں۔شرابیت سےسبھی مریض دکھ اٹھاتے ہیں لیکن کچھ نشہ چھوڑنے کے بعد بھی سکھی نہیں ہوتے، سچ پوچھیں تو وہ اور بھی دکھی ہوجاتے ہیں۔ ان کی بیماری ایک نئی شکل اختیار کرلیتی ہے، وہ دوسری قسم کی تکالیف میں مبتلا ہو جاتے ہیں۔وہ تکالیف جو کسی شخص میں شراب ترک کرنے سے پیدا ہوتی ہیں انہیں علامات پسپائی کہتے ہیں لیکن یہاں ہم ان کا ذکر نہیں کر رہے، ہم اس سلگن کا حل بتا رہے ہیں جو شراب کے گرد گھومنے والے طرز زندگی سے الگ ہونے پر پیدا ہوتی ہیں- ڈاکٹر صداقت علی اپنے اس مضمون میں میں بتاتے ہیں کہ جب رسی جل جائے پر بل نہ جائیں تو کیا کریں؟ کلک کیجئے:http://sadaqatclinic.com/the-pioneer-in-addiction-treatment/bay-awaz-cheekhain/

In this video Dr. Sadaqat Ali extensively talks about the disease of Alcoholism. There is another video of Dr Sadaqat Ali on the same topic titled “Alcoholism in Pakistan“. Dr. Sadaqat Ali is a renowned addiction psychiatrist and project director of Willing Ways Pakistan.

Around the world there are so many alcoholics and addicts’ families who suffer because of their loved one’s addiction. To begin with the patient is not willing for addiction treatment and thus the family comes into training. The training is called ‘structured intervention training’ based on approximately 15 sessions in which the family develops the skills of how to convince their loved one take help in the form of getting into treatment.  When someone falls prey to the primary disease of alcoholism later it gets accompanied by liver problem.  Usually doctors recommend patient to start taking less alcohol but unfortunately the alcoholic never acknowledges the real issue and always replies with the denial statement of ‘I am already consuming less’. If you want to help someone quit drinking then the major area that needs most of the work is the paradigm shift. 10% people fall prey to this disease when the body is not able to process alcohol properly and hence toxins start producing in. You can never predict either who will fall in 10% or otherwise 90%. The disease of alcoholism cannot be managed through short term solution rather it requires long term skills and strategies, and those could be learned through the help of a professionals.
