Is it bad to drink thoses natural 5 hour shots three to four times a week?

Probably not: I would first error on the side that there is nothing natural about a shot that gives you five hours of energy. Its essentially a caffeine shot. As long as drinking it couple times a week you will probably be ok. Multiple times a day would be a different story. ...Read more

Scared to tell GP Is to ok to be taking antidepressants half a dozen at a time to be sick for few days to cope & get through the days till better days?

No: Do not take anti-depressant pills half a dozen at a time! If you are afraid to tell your GP about this perhaps you need to go to a different one that doesn't scare you. It sounds like you need to be treated more effectively for the depression with medications and probably counseling as well. ...Read more

Should i be worried tht i drink at least 15 to 25 bottles of water a day and only output once or twice a day at the most and sometimes don't even go?

See MD: Though water output is the most through urination, we also lose is through breathing, sweating and a very small amount usually through defecation. Still, it seems that your intake is out of proportion to your output unless you are exercising ANS sweating a tremendous amount. What may be more telling is the color - if it isn't light yellow or nearly clear then there is a problem. See your md. ...Read more

I want to know that one cigarette in a day and drink once a week can harm...?

I want to know that  one cigarette in a day and drink once a week can harm...?

Yes & maybe: Even just one cigarette a day can be harmful as it causes immediate decrease in blood flow. That doesn't consider all cancer causing stuff you inhale each day. Drinking once a week depends upon how much you drink. You can't average your alcohol. In other words, drinking nothing over work/study week so that you can drink 7 beers etc on friday isn't good for brain (study shows this shrinks brain). ...Read more
