The ASMR Daily 10
Today, we are talking about a YouTube channel called Maths Town. Now, you may be thinking “Twain bro, I thought this blog was about ASMR?” And you would be half correct. This blog is about ASMR, but it is also about addiction recovery. With the addition of votd-10, I am keeping an open mind about recovery.
What is ASMR, anyway? To me!, it’s a way to conquer alcoholism; it is the bedrock in my recovery. Even today, 18 months after my last drink, I still get urges to consume alcohol. When that happens, I turn to what I know: ASMR.
When I discovered the Maths Town YT page several months ago, I immediately knew it could be a viable tool in somebody’s recovery toolbox. Let it be yours! Today, if you get one of those urges; you know the urges of which I speak, maybe you want to give the above video a watch. Now, I will say, the music which is paired with the above video is very upbeat, neigh even dance-club music. If you don’t like the music you have two options: turn the sound for the video all the way down, or, you could go directly to their YouTube page and search out a different video. In fact, you could shuffle from video to video until you feel you have found the satisfaction you need.
I promise, if you allow it to, the urge to consume will pass. You just need to bide your time! The things that work best for me include: Going on a walk, calling someone within my support network, and of course watching ASMR videos. If the urge to consume doesn’t go away as fast as you want it to, don’t fret, I still promise it will pass. Just try a combination of different things! Or, like me, you could watch ASMR videos back, to back, to back, to back, to back…
Watching the “fractal zoom’ videos brought to you by Maths Town is another good option for biding your time. Today, I am suggesting you just throw on Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon, turn off the sound for the above video, and v e g o u t. Seriously.

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.

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.
