Has anyone encountered clients desiring getting rid of a chewing tobacco habit? If so, did you handle it in a similar fashion to smoking cessation or what?

Thanks!

I've helped a client with chewing tobacco. Treated it just like smoking cessation, just changed the words in the script. Along with some reinforcing scripts. The guy quit chewing after that session. I Talked to him a couple weeks later and he's was still in good shape.

Thank you hobie...I wasn't aware that chewing tobacco is VERY popular with teenagers these days. I guess, a way to "smoke in class" without getting caught! Anyway, it's popular where I live for kids to be doing this...I DO appreciate the advice.

I have done a couple of these and also have used a modification of what I use for smokers. I specifically followed up on these guys (maybe a week or two after, don't exactly remember) and they were having an easy time at it.

On a very funny note.....when I first started, the first time someone called me and asked me if I work with chewers, I didn't even know what he was talking about. Needless to say, I did not book that appointment!

good luck

Melanie

PS.. with respect to teenagers, I have found that the few I have booked are not reliable and have resulted in no-show or late cancellation. Most of my clients are in the 30-55 yr range, but I now refuse to book a teenager without requiring a deposit up front (maybe 50%).... not really sure how to handle it....anyone else with this problem? I very seldom get those young ones, but I won't deal with this any more.
I can't see more than 3 people a day, so if I have a no-show it is a big imposition.

I have helped someone who chewed. I stress that the sensation,
the habit and everything about chewing is VERY different from smoking. Simply changing a few words in a script won't do it.
I find it a much more difficult habit to treat than smoking.
It is often more ingrained than smoking as chewers often begin at a younger age. It is also, if the person is from the West, more ingrained into the culture as to be acceptable.

I did modify the script of a smoker when treating my client but getting them to accept that they are ready to let go of the habit
will be the biggest challenge.

2 responses to make....

Melanie, I am not sure why you have the difficulty with teenagers not showing. Do you schedule with the parent and have the parent coming in with the child because they are underage? And yes, prepay is the solution. The days of sitting and waiting are over and I do believe it's due to a few changes I've made over time with the prepay policy the most instrumental. Over 95% of my clients prepay and I see at least 50 people a week in my office and when busy we may have up to 100 per week. I can honestly say the no-shows and cancellations change significantly when the sessions are all ready paid for. No one wants to lose their investment.

I too have worked with people for chewing tobacco and do not use smoking scripts. Actually, I can't remember the last time I read anything. It's first important to realize that even though there are common threads regarding all issues, every person is unique and has their own emotional reasons why they have done or continue to do anything. I have found it almost essential to use regression to go back to the ISE and work from there. As well, direct suggestion, metaphors, emotional cleansing and emotional strengthening are
always a part of my sessions.

Ironic this post is up presently for I will be working with a very famous Major League Baseball pitcher during the upcoming off season for this exact issue. Imagine the emotional attachment to his chewing and ability to perform athletically. Don't you just love a challenge?

My best,

Was just reviewing this post.. It's been a while. When I first posted my reponse, I was very new at hypnosis and did not realize that everyone does not regress to cause. With chewing, as with any other issue I see, I regress to cause and clear the individuals
unique reasons for what they want to change. Changing the words in the smoking script to accommodate chewing was secondary to that successful session.

I'd love to hear more about your session with the pitcher as well as your other work with smokeless tobacco. I thought your comments were very apt, and while of course taking into account cause and the uniqueness of the person is primary, I have found that the olfactory and sensory experience which seems to be inherent in the chewing process is a HUGE part of leaving the habit behind for many.
As far as regressing to the first "dip," I have found, that especially where dipping is ingrained in the culture and it is normal for a great many kids to start doing it as young as 10,
that this doesn't always provide the same "freeing" experience as it may with smokers.
