    Facts revealed by licensed behavioral health care clinicians to help do far more than simply "stop" smoking, dipping, chewing tobacco for nicotine

Saves Lives Protects Children Page gives a brief overview of NDRR
Important background and program premises-supporting information briefly reviewed or introduced but not discussed during training because most of it accentuates the problem instead of the proposed solution and so is not presented to clients:

Recommended NDRR usual agenda with individuals, couples and groups:

1. Introduction (who you are, short quotes you might select from the Saves Lives Protects Children page or NDRR Abstract) and housekeeping (turn off cell phones, when will take a break, short overview of this agenda, will give the Truthful Statements, Simple 7 and Truthful Suggestions Promote Affection handouts and one self-hypnosis audio-CD to each participant at the end of the session).

2. Briefly introduce the Truthful Statements handout (participant version) and

    • read the 15 statements. (Important to do because those statements introduce key elements of NDRR and what participants will need to do.)
    • Do the two ratings and after each ask something such as, "Did you give it a rating of 4 or less?" (With a group, you can ask for a show of hands.)
    • Ask the two "Yes/No" questions. (You can ask for a show of hands to indicate "yes" answers.)
    • Ask participants to do this later just before they leave: (1) check the two "Yes" answers (2) sign and date the copy of the Truthful Statements handout they will take with them.

    NOTE: Rarely tell what low rating numbers may say about the presence of health risk denial. Use that data instead to prompt your emphasizing that it is even more important to do what they promise to do: Each day for 3 weeks read the Simple 7 handout, listen to Tracks 1 and 2 together and call and talk to you if ever seriously tempted to use nicotine.

3. Read the Questions and Answers, add details if and where needed and welcome requests for clarification.

    NOTE: When teaching a group, tell the participants that you will have some cloves available for them to experiment with during the break. Add a little explanation about how they are used. Put enough cloves on a piece of paper and where they can be picked up.

4. Ask if there are brief questions you can answer briefly. (When leading a group, if someone begins something like a history of his or her smoking behavior including unsuccessful attempts to "quit" or asks a question that probably will take too much of the group's time, respectfully suggest covering it after the session.)

BREAK (When seeing an individual or couple, you can ask if they need a bathroom break and give a clove.)

    NOTE: When seeing an individual or couple, you can put 5 to 10 cloves in a Kleenex to take with them.

5. Give a chance to comment on their very brief experience with cloves.

6. Go over the 7 parts of the Your Simple 7 Hypnosis Triggers handout.

    NOTE: When you get to #4 (chewing some clove into sugarless gum to control appetite), explain that only needs to be done if they begin to overeat or perhaps crave sweets.

7. Use the label you put on all CD's or cassette tapes you will give to introduce the self-hypnosis audio portion of the program.

8. Practice with participant(s) and model the self-hypnosis. Rather than reading the 2 scripts, you might play the recording. See below audio tracks. You can also do a combination of reading and using the recording.

9. Ending summary, comments and questions.

    NOTE: Give all handouts and more CLOVES.
