          Rod acknowledges he has struggled with multiple dependency issues, including gambling and alcohol abuse; but says the one causing the biggest problem in his marriage right now is pornography. “I’ve been addicted since high school,” he admits.

          “I am so done,” says Michelle, adding, “I don’t think he’s going to change and I can’t live like this.”

          “I’m making progress,” says Rod who claims he’s been 22 years without a drink and hasn’t been active in his other addictions for some time.
