.The Number 1 Best Scheduling Practice For Every Recovering Addict
Not everyday is going to be the same, that is all but guaranteed. Some days will be busy, and some days will be slow. Some days you will feel over the moon! and Some days scorned. However, by following the Number 1 Best Scheduling Practice for Every Recovering Addict, you can greatly decrease your chances of relapsing into addiction. You are all-powerful over your addiction, and it has no power over you. But if your addiction catches you on the right day -bam- all of your hardwork can go right down the drain! Seriously! You know how it feels to have months of sobriety under your belt, and then you get high once and you feel like you’re back to square one. It’s important to remember that that is just a feeling. It’s important to know that if you have had months of sobriety under your belt, then you are well and good on your way to recovering from addiction. Yes! It’s time to feel good! Right now! Even if you are not currently sober! If you have had 3, or even as little as 1 month of sobriety in the past, that’s no small feat, and its something to be celebrated! However, don’t expect things to start getting easier, because things might get difficult any day of the week, and you don’t want to be caught off guard. Stay poised and ready to battle your addictions. You will never stop carrying your armor; You will only get stronger from carrying it.
I honestly want the best for you, because I love you. Soon you’ll be saying:
Yeah, there was a lot of times I wanted to get high, but I didn’t, and look at me now.
Wake Up At The Same Time Everyday
I pity the fool who does not wake up at the same time everyday! You need to choose a time that is practical for you to wake up at every single day of the week. I’m talking Sunday to Sunday here. I’m talking about commitment! But this one is an easy commitment, I promise. You’re already committed to waking up everyday, right? I mean, you keep waking up, whether you view that as a gift or a curse. We’re just going to nudge that commitment in the best possible direction. Give yourself a huge leap towards a full recovery by selecting a time that you can wake up at everyday, and then stick to waking up at that time. If you do not believe that this will help you recover from addiction, then you are doing yourself a disservice. You must try new things and have no expectations, and you must believe me when it comes to addition recovery.
I’m talking everyday! Even on your days off. Even on the weekends and even on those days when you stay up all night drinking mtn dew and playing video games. Do you still have those kinds of days? The innocence of your youth will come back to you as you find your sobriety, and it will hurt, and it will be one of the first feelings you will be able to feel again. How old were you when you started doing drugs? And how much has the story of your life veered away from the stories of your friends and peers in school? There are a lot of drug addicts in the world, but we usually don’t gather in groups. At least, the people who are having problems with heroin, meth, crack, cocaine, and sometimes alcohol. There are introverts and extroverts on this planet, which is a trait that probably extends to all members of the animal kingdom. What are you? If you are an introverted person trying to overcome addiction, you might have a harder time than an individual who is extroverted. I believe socializing helps greatly with addiction recovery. Whether or not you believe me, I’m telling you right here and now that you need social interaction. Homo-Sapiens evolved in tribes, and it’s proven that teamwork is one of our most unique traits; that it lead to almost all of our successes. We humans can imagine things that aren’t really there…and then all agree upon those myths! Your human brain is a wonderful thing, but it didn’t come with a manual. Let me guide you. The first thing you need to do on your journey to a healthier mental state and dissolved addiction crisis, is have the resolve to wake up at the same time everyday. It’s not easy! I make an effort to wake up at the same time everyday, but sometimes I do not succeed arising by 5am. However, after trying different times and methods of waking up over the years, I can say from my heart that I feel the best when I maintain a solid wake up time. Going to bed at the exact same minute everyday, and waking up at the exact same minute everyday. When I maintain this schedule, everything else in my life gets easier. No matter how much you want to stay in bed in the morning, you must wake up. Maybe try laying on your floor and doing some stretches. That’s what I do. Or you could do full-on yoga in the mornings! That would change your life. I honestly think an individual who is having troubles with hardcore addiction could turn their life around immediately and fast if they dedicated themselves to a better diet, scheduling, exercise, and adventure. Easier said than done, I know. I’ll be back tomorrow at 8am with more to say about the subject of addiction recovery. See you then!

The ASMR Psychologist
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 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.
