Product Trial: Zerosmoke®

Hypothesis: Accupressure can be used to treat Depression, weight loss, & Chronic Pain: ZeroSmoke was designed for smokers as a quit smoking aid. Are there other uses, or other effects for users who are non-smokers?

Product Description: 2 magnet disks...1 smaller than the other. Worn with larger disk forward, and placed in hollow of the ear.

Scientific Method of Experimentation: began 11/09/2007 @ 4:00pm EST

Subject: Annette Buchanan-Phillips (self); a non-smoker. No IRB required or Producer permission or request for this study. I paid for the product at the retail price + shipping via mail order.

Used for 1 to 2 years intermittently; from rising or as needed till 9pm or discomfort, (pain/numbness).

Left Ear: Increased libido initially; mild elation and happy (pleasant) mood. Worn for 1 to 1 ½ hours.

½ hour break time

Right Ear: Improved logical thinking; clear focus and speech. Worn 2 hours. Off at 9pm.

Other Effects:

Dietary cravings changed after approximately 1 week of wear; tastes and smell of meats became undesirable. I only wanted fruits, cereals, and vegetables for about 3 weeks; when I experienced social pressure to return some meats to my diet. Contra-indications due to 1986 Schizophrenia diagnoses; and anti-depression plus psycho-tropic medications drug holiday extended since 12/2006.

My mood was so calm, and I experienced increased energy, creativity, singing and desire to exercise and dance, etc. Some of the effect may be due

to Spirituality, Tai Chi, 2-3 Qi-Gong treatments and Psychiatric & Counseling supports and helps. I spent a great deal of my time alone, writing and art, with invention as past times. I interacted with my Television programming; more than relatives, and suffered very little loneliness; or depressed mood. I am an African American Woman aged 57 in 2009.

Due to economic pressures of Family Medical Leave Act lack of income as an Insurance Sales Agent; subsequent evictions, and collections harassment as a result of inability to pay bills.

The Increased stressors of unemployment, lack of companionship or contact comforts outside of primary family groups; are a variable that may or may not exist for all users.

Initial weight loss was approximately 10 to 15 pounds over six months. Which was not outside of the normal fluctuations range. After cessation weight returned to a homestatic 7 pounds loss due to more activity and fresh foods as opposed to vending and fast foods. (Working diet; in a sedentary insurance sales call-center environment.)

I started at approximately 220 pounds at FMLA 2006 and the same + or - 5 pounds on 11/09/2007.

Last weight 02/2010 approximately 210 after 8 months of no use of Zerosmoke®.

First reported: approximately 01/2008 online. This report: 06/09/2010.

Children Learn What They Live

by  Dorothy Law Nolte

If children live with criticism, They learn to condemn.

If children live with hostility, They learn to fight.

If children live with ridicule, They learn to be shy.

If children live with shame, They learn to feel guilty.

If children live with encouragement, They learn confidence.

If children live with tolerance, They learn to be patient.

If children live with praise, They learn to appreciate.

If children live with acceptance, They learn to love.

If children live with approval, They learn to like themselves.

If children live with honesty, They learn truthfulness.

If children live with security, They learn to have faith in themselves and others.

If children live with friendliness, They learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

Helps, Supports & Guidance

A Modern Behavioral Approach to Overcoming Addiction:

Healing the Pain Yourself

(With helps, supports, and planning)


Annette Buchanan-Phillips, MA, PhD

March 22, 2009













Overcoming Addiction -2- A. Buchanan-Phillips, MA, PhD

This paper is to accompany the flowchart by me based on the H.A.L.T. Theory of Addiction Maintenance; and utilizes Behavior Modification principles, Reality Theory, (W. Glasser); and Gestalt Theory.

The objective is to create a new self perception; and therefore a new self image, based upon self esteem; and achievement.

The basis of the H.A.L.T. Theory is the acronym for certain essential principles in overcoming any addictive, and self destructive behaviors where negative self images are built up through negative self talk, and reinforcing associations and environment.

Never Allow Oneself to be:

H= too Hungry (May cause hallucinations and prompt self defeating acts)

A= too Angry (May lead too over reaction to small slights or memory)

L= too Lonely (May cause delusion and feelings of hopelessness)

T= too Tired (Is sensory deprivation; which can produce urges to self medicate)

Behavior Modification Strategy

Utilizing Solution Focused Brief Therapy: Plan, Set Time limits, and Goals.

Plan= Establish the Plan of treatment with the client; asking for feedback, and guidance from the "Client As Expert" on themselves, and their life.

Overcoming Addiction -3- A. Buchanan-Phillips, MA, PhD

Time= S.F.B.T. has a set time for achieving goals, and therapeutic visits. In many cases of third party pay; only maintenance visits are funded after an intial 6 to 12 diagnostic, planning and treatment appointments. Therefore it is essential to establish the new paradigms and objectives early, requiring client tasks such as journal keeping to assist in client focus, commitment and dedication.

Goals= The Goal of the Client is to assist the Therapist in helping them to "Create the Life They Want" which will include a desired self image in the process.

Opening Closed Avenues Of :

Communications= Catharsis via Verbal and Written Dialogue; which may include Art Therapy, Music Therapy, and journal or diary entries, even fictionalizing in order to step outside of the self and visualize situations and solutions objectively.

Detox= Cleansing the Physical Body and Digestive system from the Inside Out. This purging includes creating a diet for that purpose; ie., poultry and fish with fruits and steamed vegetables, with extra focus on hydration via ionized water, juices, and lemonade.

Psycho-Spiritual Advancement= Introspection, and reporting, combines with self analysis by the Client with the help and support of the Therapist or Counselor. This purges the spirit and the memories; in charting the precipitating acts or events to the addictive behavior; and the feelings before, during and after the behavior.

Overcoming Addiction -4- A. Buchanan-Phillips, MA, PhD

Replacement & Reprogramming

Replacement= Replacing the addictive behavior with new and more positive emotionally gratifying behaviors. Those may include; the favorite or "wished for" reinforcing rewards that life never seemed to afford to one. Things the addiction took away; ie., beauty days, clothes shopping, concerts, or any pleasurable past times or human interactions.

Reprogramming= Using positive "Affirmations in the Mirror" and reinforcing positive self talk; with rewards for successive approximation toward goals of desired achievements, self image, and power building. A simple one might be: "I am a worthy being, of everything the Universe has to offer. I love myself as I am."

Deepak Chopra uses this one: "I am independent of the Good and Bad Opinion of Others. I am Superior to no one, and beneath no one. I am." ( D. Chopra; "The Happiness Prescription": On DVD)

Exploring New Alternatives:

Plan and Create Together: New Non-Addictive and Empowering Paradigms utilize Meditation, prayer, arts, hobbies, little adventures in your environment that were never a part of the addictive support groups places to frequent. Engage in Artistic Expression and Reflection.

New Behaviors Deserve= A new look; a make over of face, clothes, living space,

Overcoming Addiction -5- A. Buchanan-Phillips, MA, PhD

furniture, decorations and new and different is the rule to adhere to. Stretch beyond what were the previously conceived limitations. Paint your rooms, choose your colors, "Goodwill Treasures" hunt. Enjoy as you create; applaud your own successes.

New Associations and Supports Emerge:

As Plans and Goals are achieved; acknowledge and reward them for yourself; have a tall glass of lemonade and admire your painting, your colors, your new environment, and your own power and ability to create the life you want.

You deserve your applause; and that of your new associations and supporters; because you helped to carve "New Pathways" and Progress. You Created your "New Life Style and Environment."

In the Full Length Mirror is the "New You":

Complete with Self Esteem, Empowerment, and "Well-ness" Balanced; and make it your mission in life to be "better, better, and better"; (Jose Silva: "Silva Mind Control" on CD) , "every day in every way I am better, better and better."

*****Maintenance Tips****

Choose to think positive rather than negative in every situation; and limit negative conversations to 1 minute, (get an egg timer). Make an appointment to discuss what bothers you; and list talking points. Trust but verify any and all gossip; and

Overcoming Addiction -6- A. Buchanan-Phillips, MA, PhD

take note of the liars and instigators in order to apply the needed grains of salt. Avoid the troublesome old crew, and relatives who want to drag one into the old self destructive; or painful behavior patterns. Reinforce the "New Life Patterns" and build on them. Most of all, laugh often; it really does help. Appreciate Yourself, and those who helped by appreciating you for the wonderful and amazingly "One of A Kind" person that you are.

Stay Strong!
