The ASMR Community Knows That Black Lives Matter
The exact number of people listening to ASMR is unknown, but a quick search reveals there are over 1.5 million ASMR videos on YouTube.
With an existence palpable to the tune of 1.5 million contributions, it’s impossible for the ASMR Community to remain silent during this time which most of the world is seeking justice for George Floyd.
Here at ASMR.Community we seek that same justice! For several weeks leading up to the murder of George Floyd, I was following Shaun King on Instagram. It felt like everyday I checked IG I would be greeted with shock, day after day, due to inexhaustible footage of police brutality.
Today, lets look at some Asmrtists who are lending their voices to the side of justice during this time of crisis.
SlightSounds ASMR has been very outspoken on Twitter for these current events, and everything she has said I deem to be morally right and logically sensible! She is using her position as a popular asmrtist to help support donation efforts, a help educate individuals.
If you’d rather be neutral & coddle the people who believe it’s too radical to say the simple message “Black Lives Matter,” then maybe you need to evaluate who your channel is really a safe space for.— Slight Sounds ASMR (@Slight_Sounds) June 2, 2020
The people of America didn’t have equality when Ali spoke those words, and the problem persists today! However, when we all agree that police cause unnecessary violence and kill a disproportionate amount of black individuals, we can use our agreement to generate change. The internet allows up to come together in new and unique ways.
We are seeing one of the largest rallies of all time, and we are witness to History! At least, at the time of my writing this.
Mads ASMR created a video supporting the Black Lives Matter movement
As far as The Stars of ASMR contributing to the Black Lives Matter movement, the videos above represent the most popular asmrtists, of which I am aware, that are using their platform to intensify the BLM movement.
Let’s not forget, this battle for justice could go on for months or even years if that is what it takes to win the fight against inequality in America.
It will be more difficult than ever to run a business in America if you harbor hatred for People Of Color. For myriad reasons, I am glad the ASMR Community is majoriitively and morally taking the correct stance regarding the fight for a better and more equal planet for all!

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.
