In December of 2012, I was broken-hearted, depressed, addicted to drugs, in the adult film industry, and desperate for help. I knew the life I was living wasn’t designed for me, because if it was, then why did I want to end it so badly? I knew there had to be something greater out there... Read more »
I thought marriage would come easily. I pictured a handsome man sweeping in to pick me up and make me whole. I guess I have Disney to blame for that – LOL! Obviously, that fairy tale was exactly that – a fairy tale. Marriage can be difficult, and there are times when I have struggled... Read more »
Hey, Craig here. In these Whiteboard Sessions, I leave the talking to Steven Luff, a licensed MFT (Marriage and Family Therapist) in the state of California, co-author of Pure Eyes: a Man’s Guide to Sexual Integrity and creator of the X3Pure online recovery program. Today we’re talking about an age-old question: why do I fight with... Read more »

This month we’ve been exploring some of the common “permission based” questions we get from people on a weekly basis. Questions that quite honestly, don’t help anyone. If you are a woman, maybe you’re wondering if taking those sexy photos for your husband is okay during his recovery from porn or if it will trigger... Read more »

Of course not everyone shares this opinion, so then we get into questions and debates that go something like this:... Read more »
Hey, it’s Craig again. The question we’re asking this week is, “How can I manage my addiction to porn?” You know, I don’t write these questions, and I’d definitely want to reword this one. The idea of managing an addiction just doesn’t make sense to me. You can’t “manage” an addiction. It’s unmanageable. One of the... Read more »
Hey, it’s Craig here. The question this week, “Will marriage solve my porn problem?” Nope. I’ve been doing this a long time, and that’s one thing I know for sure. A lot of single people think, “I struggle with porn because I can’t have sex.” If you’ve been trying to stay a virgin before you’re... Read more »
At x3church, we have a panic button that folks can press when they’re panicking and need answers. People reach out at all hours of the night with a whole range of questions.

Hey, it’s Craig (obviously). This week, we’re talking about divorce. A glaring, recurring question often asked of us is, “Just how do I get through the pain and the trauma of my divorce or the resentment caused from the divorce?” How do I move on from that? Personally, I can’t put myself in your shoes... Read more »

Hey guys, Craig again. This month we’re talking about resentment, so – speaking of – here’s a question I often receive: “My wife is so angry about my porn use, what can I do?” If you’re reading that question and coming to the realization that, “Oh no!
