The ASMR Daily 198
Peanut Butter and Alcoholism
I’m not sure if Emily Marie expedited the uploading of her livestream because I commented that I wanted to write about it this morning [the stream was last night], or if she is just on top of her game like that, but now that I am watching the stream again the first things she says is that she doesn’t go live very often, so I’m not sure how accurately today’s featured video will represents the artists channel, but nevertheless, I wrote.
She wrought relaxation from a candle she couldn’t open, although when she first picked it up I thought it was a jar of peanut butter. Peanut butter won’t help you overcome alcoholism, but it is worth mentioning that individuals who are working to recover from alcoholism, because alcohol is created from sugars [think grapes turning to wine, but potatoes turning to vodka is the same deal. Sugars get eaten by an enzyme [think yeast] and then the enzymes poop out alcohol], have a high change of becoming addicted to consuming sugar, and subsequently develop diabetes. When I worked at the Green Tortoise we would get free food from Illy Cafe 5 days a week, and mostly what they gave us was sweets…and I ate so much of that shit – partially because it was free! It normally would have cost, say, $5 per cookie, so I’d grab like 10 of em! I didn’t even realize how much sugar I was eating until a guest pointed it out, stating that I was obviously addicted to sugar based on what he was seeing me do. It was at that point that I took a step back and began to think about my consumption. With great power comes great responsibility, and as an employee of the hostel and usually the guy who went and picked the food up, I knew I had the power to take as much food as I wanted. I had to learn responsibility about it. That same man told me he found it easier to quit heroin than to stop eating sugar, and if you’ve never done heroin, you don’t need to have any inner commentary on that. I’d say it’s easier to quit heroin that sugar, for the same reason I personally found it harder to quit alcohol than heroin. They sell alcohol [and sugar] at every grocery store! It’s not as good of a feeling as heroin, and honestly I think it does more damage to the body, but damn if alcohol ain’t super-duper easy to get a hold of!
Where were we? Shit fam, my mind left the runway without the passengers! Are you following me? Sometimes I wonder how the Asmrtists feel about my subjugating their videos to be the sideshow of my ramblings, but at the same time, some of you hopefully come here for the ASMR and my writing is merely a side show. I’ve got big plans for this site, and I do intend for people to come here and consume ASMR, without the videos being embedded in an article. I’ll always produce the blog [but I won’t always write is, I will get other recovered addicts and Asmrtists to do guest slots, hopefully writing The Daily for 5-7 days at a time], but it won’t be the star of the show forever. As of last night, I am starting to feel quite optimistic about this project. Up until this point I’ve just been writing because, well, it’s what I have to do. If I don’t write, I will die. I will die if I write too, but at least I won’t regret not writing then haha.
TWAIN! WHAT ARE YOU EVEN TALKING ABOUT? I’VE GOTTA CATCH THE BUS TO SCHOOL IN THREE MINUTES! WRAP IT UP B!
What I’m talking about, is that if you are struggling with addiction, you should consider watching today’s Video Of The Day instead of having a drink. I mean seriously! If you make it all the way through today’s video without having a drink, you know the sense of accomplishment you will have on the other side.

Did you watch the whole thing? I’m kidding. I figure most people finish the article while they are watching the video. If you do watch the whole thing, make sure to subscribe to her channel, and definitely give that video a thumbs-up. The thumbs-up is how you tell YouTube what’s lit and whats shit. I just gave the video a thumbs-up right now! Seriously.
It’s 07:15 in the morning right now, and this is the eight-hundred-and-thirty-third day in a row I am maintaining sobriety from alcohol. It’s been several days longer than that since I had my last drink, but as you may or may not know, I do not celebrate the last drink I had, but instead I celebrate the day I decided to become sober. I’m pretty sure I had my last drink on my birthday, but then when July 4th came around and everyone was drinking and partying, I decided I was done. I had decided I was done many times before that, but that’s the time I succeeded, and so that’s the day I celebrate. This is one of the key differences between a 12-step program, and the 4-steps of the ACSP [ASMR Community Sobriety Program]. I guess we should start having meetings, huh?

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.

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.
