Celebrating something. Mike Caussin marked a major milestone in his fight against sex addiction – and thanked him Jana Kramer for still being by his side despite some darker moments.
“As an addict, I am very ashamed. Others who have a similar illness may relate to it. We seldom like to talk about it, let alone about it, “wrote the 33-year-old former NFL athlete on Monday, December 28th, in a thoughtful post on his wife’s Instagram account.” But this Thursday I’m celebrating the soberest year of mine entire life life. I’ve stumbled and fell on this program for the past four years, but this year was finally different. “
Caussin admitted that the steps he took over the past year would not have been possible “without finally allowing me to lean on others, on my wife and on God”. Though not intended to deserve “attention, sympathy, or congratulations,” the Virginia native hoped to express “humility” about his struggles and be a source of support for others going through a similar struggle.
“As humans, and especially as men, we can learn to be vulnerable and we can allow others to help us when we need them,” wrote Caussin. “Maybe we can all lean a little more against each other this New Year. We have a choice whether we want to share or live together. Given this choice, why would you want to be divided? We are all different and that makes us the breathtaking wonders we are. Let’s say that in 2021. “
Kramer, 37, married in May 2015 and welcomed their first child, daughter Jolie, three months later. The duo split in September 2016 afterwards Us weekly brought the news that Caussin had cheated. During her time off, the athlete was treated for his sex addiction. They later reconciled and renewed their vows in 2017 before welcoming their son Jace in November 2018.
In March 2019, the singer “Why You Wanna” revealed that her husband had suffered a “massive” relapse in his addiction the year before. On an episode of her podcast “Whine Down,” Kramer clarified that while Caussin was “not physically out of marriage” in this particular case, he still “did something he shouldn’t have done” that “could have been terrible.” “.
The drama didn’t stop there for the couple. At the beginning of this year the A tree hill Alaun received a DM on social media claiming Caussin was unfaithful again.
“The reason it surprised me was because it was the first time I found out that Mike had cheated on me through a DM,” Kramer explained on her October podcast. “I think – I told my therapist – I almost have this weird PTSD where I run through my DMs and almost see if the truth is going to prevail in the DM again. I have this fear when going through my DMs. … The really stupid thing is that my standard can’t go to “There is no way”. It hurts the most where I can’t just go. “I trust him 1000 percent. He would never do that. ‘”
At the time, Caussin admitted that he was “downcast” that Kramer couldn’t find a way to trust that he had improved.
“It’s a shame I did what I did in the past to do it in a relationship now,” he said. “I hope that in the next few years, if something like this happens again, she can bring it to me and we can almost laugh about it because there is so much trust in the bank. But I didn’t blame her at all for questioning me because I was still trying to find out these things. “
