Charlie Mitchell utilizes multiple examples from his personal and professional life to keep the content highly relevant, and the listener personally engaged. Charlie developed a monstrous nicotine habit during his Fraternity days. Through his journey, including successfully quitting cold turkey with 7 years since his last nicotine jolt, he both speaks to the teen that sees the appeal and the parent who is scared and wants an immediate stop. In his work with clients and families, Charlie regularly roots out the needs underlying substance use and promotes a family dynamic that supports these needs being met, with abstinence as the outcome.
