Beautiful and Confident Woman Helps You Gain Sobriety
If you want to use ASMR to help gain sobriety from any drug or substances plague your life, the first thing you gotta know is: sobriety happens slowly, and then all at once. Once upon a time, I used to take a 30 minute walk to this BP that was also a liquor store by my house in Wisconsin. So that’s 30 minutes there and 30 minutes back, usually only to buy a $5 or $10 bottle of liquor. This is a miserable life, but it was my life during 2013 and 2014.
When I first discovered ASMR in February of 2013, I never dreamed it would become such an integral part of my life. Although I spent many hours watching the videos, it wasn’t until 2015 when I began to experience any kind of introspection. Listening to ASMR was one of the only ways I found to keep my sanity during the times I would “dry out,” which is what they call it when an addict or alcoholic stops using. The goal is to only dry out once.
Hours and hours and hours of ASMR is what I have listened to; and remember that 30 minute walk to the liquor store I used to take? Fewer and fewer footsteps did I begin to lay between the store and myself.
One of the most important things I’ve realized about addiction is that the urge to consume comes in waves. That feeling of wanting to get high or wanting to use a drug is not a constant feeling. It is there…and then it is not there. Most of the time it is not there! Which is a wonderful thing.
I promise you! If you are fighting addiction…pay attention to those urges. That feeling where you need a _____, you must learn to recognize it. I know you might have heard this before, but seriously. Notice how the urge arrives, and perhaps you find yourself pacing or palming your hands while it exists, but eventually, always, you find something to distract from the sensation or urge to get high. What is it that distracts you? What is it that comes after the urge? Do you go and find someone to talk to? Do you go on a walk? Have you considered watching ASMR?
Celaine’s ASMR is such an amazing channel for those looking to combat addiction; it’s almost unfair that you have this resource and I didn’t!
Every time I watch a video from Celaine, I am taken to another universe. The Asmriverse! A beautiful realm with blues and greens. Relax on a beach or walk the streets of Ancient Rome, the Asmriverse has it all! Be considerate to wear headphones, and make sure to dress appropriately.
Her accent melts me, and so does her confidence on camera. I love sharing an experience with an Asmrtist that’s confident af. I make a an effort to only recommend high-quality content that I believe can help individuals combat addiction, anxiety, depression, and potentially PTSD on this blog. However, I watch a lot of ASMR that doesn’t make it to this blog. That’s nothing against those creators, but if we’re going to talk about content that I believe can help individuals combat and overcome addiction, anxiety, depression, and possibly even PTSD, well, I’ve got to draw the line somewhere on what I promote. I will never tell you where I draw that line, but it’s well below the quality and success of someone like Celaine.
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.

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.
