When an asmrtist brings something new to the community, it is a glorious day!
Currently I have this video playing into my headphones. My headphones are rather nice, as I had ASMR in mind when I purchased them. Because of this, I can hear clearly…the sounds in this video are mixed very well! Sometimes I put on an asmr production, and the sounds are not all the same volume. That may be intentional, or accidental, but either way those videos cause a jagged effect on my ears. Criss has an artists touch I rather like, and I feel his creative vibe just as much as I respect his production vibe. You can tell he put a lot into these videos, both of himself and his available resources.
Still listening to the same video, I am hearing many different sounds. The only sound I have any qualm or quarrel about is when he blows air into the mic [seems to be always the left ear]. I find the sound to be too loud, certainly.
Now I am watching/ listening to his first asmr video. His name is Criss Johnson, and he has always had trouble falling asleep. A familiar story, Criss used to stare at the ceilingfor hours instead of sleeping. Like many of us though, his life change when he discovered asmr. It has been helping him sleep from day one! He doesn’t mention the artist specifically, but he says that a barbershop video, curated by a girl, was his first ASMR experience.
Criss! I love your name, and I love that you have been in love with asmr since you first discovered it [which you say was about two years ago. Cool]! To hear the wonderful stories of asmr is priceless, but it’s even more awesome when individuals like Criss take that next step, and venture into creating content themselves.
Watching that same video, I just have to say that it stresses me out a little bit how stressed he looks while making some of these sounds lol. This is still his first video though. OMG! Now he is playing with this little green sea urchin-like thing! I used to have one of those! Oh, but mine didn’t have a face on it. Still, that thing he is playing with jogs my memory in nostalgic ways. Wow! It was another lifeime in which I had that toy. What a nice surprise. Thanks for abruptly bringing those memories back to life, Criss.
So, anyway, let’s bring things around town.
This website is dedicated not only to ASMR, but also to alcoholics and drug addicts that are working towards a better self. In bringing CrissASMR our discussion here, I am saying “I believe that Criss ASMR makes video’s which can, and will, help you on your journey to success. Do they speak to you.”
The ASMR Community Project philosophy is: “One video at a time, you will get through your day.” For some of you, that will be using ASMR videos, but there are many videos available for free online to occupy your time [instead of drinking]. If you already embrace ASMR, we think that’s just awesome, and we look forward to providing you with the resources [Forum? Chat room?] to discuss how the phenomenon has changed your life. Those same communicative infrastructures will be used to support open discussions about addiction recovery, mental health, physical health, and positive vibes.
Like I said, if you already embrace ASMR: Let the sounds take you over. Take some time to relax! The whole world is on the same vibe right now, and that vibe is stay indoors. Let Criss ASMR help you to soak in that worldly vibe.

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.
