The ASMR Daily 11
My life [at least these days] is built around achievable goals. In a world full of uncertainty, planning is key! but even when you make a plan, it is very easy to set yourself up for failure.
Long ago, I checked myself into a detox program, because I am an alcoholic. To assist in solving my problems, the doctor asked many questions. When he asked me what my plan was, I told him I was going to go back to University, and become a theoretical physicist.
That was a period of my life when I didn’t set achievable goals. Instead, I shot for the stars, time, and time again. Even these days I shoot for the stars! but I landed on a star once, and since then, I am orientated to understand what success feels like. It feels like three months alcohol-free. Currently, I am 21 months without alcohol.
SO! It is at this time, I am going to ask you: “What are your goals?”
If your goal is to quit drinking alcohol, you have set a very achievable goal. I believe in you! You can accomplish your goal, I am 100% sure of it.
For those times, be they today, tomorrow, or the rest of the week; those times that you have cravings to drink, I encourage you to watch some of the videos I have recommended on this website. Why don’t you start with the one above! I mean seriously, even if you don’t fully embrace ASMR.
When you feel like there is no other option than having a drink, I suggest you set a small goal: Watch 1 ASMR video, and sit through the whole thing. If you still feel like having a drink at the end [which is likely], my advice is that you watch another video. That’s what I did. That’s what I still do! But my cravings come few and far between these days.
You can succeed in quitting drinking alcohol/doing drugs!
You can succeed, and that has been proven by people all over the world.
It is important to try many different things in regards to overcoming addiction, and so I will continue to recommend different methods of achieving sobriety; 85% ASMR, and 15% OTHER.
Until next time!
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.

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.
