Confident and Beautiful Woman Helps You Gain Sobriety
Yesterday I spoke about confidence and how I make an effort to recommend asmrtists that I deem confident. Or at least, I tried to phrase it that way haha. Today we have a rising star in our midst. When I first started following Starling four or five months ago, she had only 2000 subscribers. Today she has 46.4k subscribers. There are two things to be learned from that rapid growth, and today we are going to talk about one of them.
Confidence. Starling oozes confidence, and it’s a blessing she’s letting it pour out unto us! The ASMR Community without confidence would no better than your friends poorly miked Instagram stories [you can view this forum to learn that there is no definitive way to pluralize the use of a microphone].
When it comes to addiction recovery, confidence is something you need to have. You need to have confidence that you are capable of achieving the goals you have set forth for yourself, and you need to have confidence that there are things in this world you enjoy besides drugs and alcohol. I’ve met so many people and heard so many stories about addicts in recovery that fall back into their old ways after 1 or even 2 years of successful sobriety, because they did find that their life improved. I don’t knock anyone for that, because if doing drugs is truly what makes you happy, who am I to tell you how to live your only life? But also, I believe that drug addiction is like bootcamp – you only have to go through it once, and it changes the rest of your life…but no matter how much fun you’re having, you don’t want it to be the story of your life.
Personally, I smoke weed, and although some people might say I never overcame addiction, I would retort and say that it’s impossible to get over addiction. You simply must work with it. Make your addictive tendencies work for you!
Smoking cannabis does get boring, and there are times during which I think about what life would be like if I began to use harder drugs again, but I never do it. I just smoke my weed, and if that starts to feel like it’s not enough, I stop smoking weed for a little bit to make it fun and exciting again. And you know what? I just do it. That’s something you learn in bootcamp – sometimes, shit’s just gotta get done, whether you like it or not!
Smoking weed everyday is so much better than drinking alcohol everyday, because…it just is; you’ll have to keep reading this blog to learn everything I think about that subject, but the basis is: I’m allowed to do what I want to do with my life, and so I stopped using hard drugs and alcohol, and now I smoke weed pretty much daily. Currently my cannabis consumption is regulated by the amount of money I have, but soon there will be nothing regulating my consumption other than my own restraint. Upon achieving full financial independence is when the addict must worry.
Okay, let’s check out the video. I’m sure all this talk about changing your life is stressful to read, so, let’s de-stress for a second, and then I’ll really knock the theory of a confident recovery out of the park for you!
Last time I wrote about Starling…I wasn’t very nice. Well…What is nice really? It’s not like I taped a picture of her to a dartboard and played 300, BUT I did write that she was a sellout for advertising with Raid Shadow Legends. Starling, if you’re reading this, I apologize for writing that. It was not required of me. Do I stand by what I wrote? Yes, and I think most people would agree with me that Raid is perhaps not the best game for someone who is already stressed or has high anxiety. Nonetheless, people are allowed to make their own decisions. As an American I fight for peoples rights to make their own decisions, even the foolish ones, as it is the foolish ones we learn from. I just wanted to clarify that. We here [which is just me! Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to submit a written account of your experience with ASMR] at ASMR.Community love Starling ASMR. She is an example of what type of ASMR can best help an addict [in my opinion], she is an example of EXACTLY how hard you have to work to have a successful business, much less a successful ASMR channel, and she is creative af, which is probably why her channel is doing much better than average. If you read this blog everyday, and especially if you signup to affiliate with us [you must be an asmrtist], you will learn to make a livable wage from your ASMR channel with as little as 10k subscribers. Starling obviously doesn’t need our help, or anyone’s help haha. She knows what she’s doing. Now, personally, I love when an economy is tight and there is no money left on the table. Starling leaves some money on the table, but far less than most Asmrtist’s. In the descriptions of her videos she writes exactly how any donated money will be spent, and this exactly how all asmrtists should do it. Be honest, and do the right thing.
You get a window.
You get a window of time between quitting your drug[s] of choice and financial independence. During this window is when you must trust the process. You don’t want to reach financial independence and then find out you still have some addictive tendencies you can’t manage, because then you run the risk of overdosing instead of running out of money [obviously, both were always possible]. We will continue this conversation tomorrow! Have a GREAT Friday!

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.
