The ASMR Daily 189
Kisses From Maimy
Maimy ASMR is on her way to being a famous person, although compared to most of us, she already is. Eighty-two thousand subscribers is no small feat! But do you know how I know she is going to get an additional 80k before the end of the year?
There is so much I could say about the ASMR Community and how has evolved from something we didn’t understand or recognize, to something we understand intimately…so much I have to say, in fact, that I could never publish all my thoughts in a single organized work…I’d need some sort of…blog or something…wait a minute…
The equalization on this video is intense. Maimy, I’m thinking you should have kept the pop-filter on for this one. For those of you that aren’t audio engineer’s [all Asmrtist’s are amateur audio engineers], the pop-filter or pop-screen is the little piece of foam that either goes over, or in front of a microphone.
“Omg, Twain, are you going to talk about anything useful? I want to know about Maimy! Tell me about the Asmrtist. Does she make good sounds?”
Okay, whoa! First of all, this blog ASMR.Community will only ever feature Asmrtists that make Good Sounds. Second of all…I don’t know that much about Maimy ASMR…yet. Maybe I’ll reach out to try and interview her before she gets too famous for something like that.
Maimy’s YouTube channel has existed since September of 2016, but her oldest video is only from October 27th of last year. The caption says “Hello loves! This is my first video after a long time! I will be uploading more often. Feedback is always welcome, hope u enjoy it ♥,” so obviously there was some content that existed prior, but I do not know what that content was. Perhaps it was some ASMR videos that she grew out of and then either privated or removed completely. Some of the greatest artists of all time have destroyed their own work, and deleting a video is easier than destroying an art canvas. Trust me, I’ve done both.
When one deletes a video, they typically keep a copy of the file somewhere. Of course, this isn’t always true. I’m just trying to express to you one of the varieties of ways the destruction of digital art is significantly different than the destruction of analog art. I’ve never called it analog art before; is that thing? I’mma look it up. Ha! Totally! But for the article I found, they are spelling it analogue instead of analog, which makes me think the website is from England. That, and it’s got Ox in the name. In America, we’ve only got Oxen the animal.
You know, I ask my irl friends what they think of this blog, and one of them told me they checked one of the articles out, but instead of learning about an asmrtist, they left confused. Genuinely, that was an impactful moment for me. I know there are individuals interested in reading about ASMR, but I don’t exactly know why they are, or what part of the ASMR Community they are interested in. I know a lot about the subject; I’ve been listening to ASMR for over 7 years, and I am apt to gain knowledge, innately. If you put me in a room with something, I’m going to learn about that something, unless it bores me. ASMR does not bore me, and I do not want to bore you! Drop us a line using our Contact Us form, or reach out on one of our social media platforms, and let us know what kinds of questions you have about ASMR, who you would like to see featured on the blog, and of course anything you think we’ve written about and gotten wrong.
Today is Tuesday, and it’s still a no booze day for me. ASMR was one of the most powerful tools I had access tool as a recovering alcoholic, and I just don’t know if my life would be the same if I existed at any other point in history, because the internet and subsequently ASMR were such amazing tools in my fight to overthrow addiction from my life. Honestly, I think a recovering addict has a better chance of recovery right now more than any time in history before this, at least in times and places where abusable substances were readily available. Why is now better than any previous time in history to overcome addiction? Well, you’ll have to come back tomorrow to learn about that.

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.

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.
