Addiction Is Not Random
There will be many long nights for those in addiction recovery. You must have something to live for! Somehow, egregiously, I ended up with this blog. But you know what? I live for this shit. It’s 1:25 in the morning in Cape Coral and there is nothing in the world I would rather be doing than writing this article.
Is it an article? Or is it just a blog post? I’ve always told people “I’m writing an article,” even though I long ago figured out that what I do is neither quaint nor high class for my contemporaries to consider it an article. Article? What kind? Article of Science? Article of History? And so I tell them the truth; that this is an Article of Madness! Seriously though, I consider what I do to be philosophy. This would be the philosophy of addiction recovery. Uhh…oh you probably expect something great from me now. Just a minutes. It’s coming…
Addiction is not random. The only surefire way to know if you are at risk for addiction, is to observe your parents. If one or both of your parents are addicts, you are more at risk for addiction. If you are unsure if your parents have ever had addiction problems, just ask them. Telling your parents that you want to learn more about the risks of addiction is an admirable thing. Knowledge is power. Hopefully they realize that. Kids are going to find out about drugs and alcohol, and it’s best they find out from their parents. Maybe it’s best your parents find out from me? I’m going to have to work on that. I’ve been working on writing more informative articles about ASMR and Addiction Recovery, because I know that the ones I have currently are not very packed with information.
Well! That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed the article, and don’t overlook the fact that VisualSounds1 ASMR gave us 45 minutes of her time to produce the above video! I believe those 45 minutes can really help you fight addictive urges. So instead of reaching for your drug of choice this morning [right now, whenever that is], I am suggesting you hangout with VisualSounds1 for a while first, and assess how you really feel about the day.
No matter what you choose, have a good day.

Everyday Sobriety Advice
I am a recovered alcoholic/drug addict, but I am not a qualified addiction counselor. To help other alcoholics/addicts achieve sobriety, I have created the mantra’s below. Although I call them “steps,” I believe that all four mantra’s should be recited in concurrence.
When the urge to drink alcohol or use drugs comes upon you, I suggest reciting these four steps, and then implementing an activity to “kill time” until your urge to use drugs/alcohol is less intense. I suggest you use ASMR videos to “kill time”
Good luck, My Friend
Below are the steps of admittance required for using The ASMR.Community Sobriety Program [ACSP] successfully.
Step 1: “Sobriety is a choice, and it is up to me to make the right choice.”
Step 2: “Not everybody will be able to achieve sobriety, but that knowledge does not prevent my success regarding sobriety.”
Step 3: “The urge to imbibe (substances that I know will prevent my success) is finite. Sometimes the urge will exist, sometimes the urge will not exist.”
Step 4: “Sobriety is not the same for everyone. Success is.”
I believe the steps I listed above are a complete, non-exclusionary list of all mental admissions needed to achieve your goals regarding sobriety.
Everybody’s definition of sobriety is different, but everybody’s definition of success is the same.

For more daily support, check out Sober James on YouTube. He does a livestream every night at 21:00 Eastern Standard Time, and his live streams are a great place to receive support, gain motivation, and listen to encouragement in regard to addiction recovery. His program is based on the Twelve Steps.
SMART Recovery is another great program for individuals who are ready to tackle their addictions.
If you are seeking spiritual guidance, I highly encourage you to check out Tarot Reader ASMR. Her name is Amalia, and she is a kind-hearted individual with a skill for bringing us closer to ourselves.
Don’t underestimate the power of Yoga! Specifically Yoga With Adriene. My shoulder is broken, and so you can do some Yoga for me too. I really wish I could…
If you are looking or more information about ASMR, I’ve found the best place to learn about the subject is ASMR University. Their information is accurate [to the best of my knowledge], and plentiful. I mostly work with the application of ASMR, but there is a whole lot more to ASMR than using it to gain sobriety or fall asleep, including the history and the science of it.
