Queen Annura can make you Sober
“A frog is any member of a diverse and largely carnivorous group of short-bodied, tailless amphibians composing the order Anura [literally ‘without tail’ in Ancient Greek].” – Wikipedia
Besides Queen Annura of the ASMR Community, I could find no references to other Annura’s from history. Does it not sound like the name of a great leader? I can’t get it out of my head that the name Annura sounds Egyptian, but that assumption has no basis in reality. No matter which way you slice the piezo though, it’s a beautiful name, and when we are speaking of Annura’s ASMR, the name is accompanied by beautiful sounds.
Strongly and seriously, I believe that Annura’s ASMR videos can help individuals the world across achieve sobriety. Last night I made a phone call so that I could be on the Sober James YouTube channel. I only found his channel yesterday, but I knew immediately that I could trust his sobriety advice. If you are looking for sobriety but you are not finding it with this blog, or if you just want to fill up your schedule with more sober speakers, I encourage you to check out Sober James.
I can tell when an individual has been where I’ve been, and when they’ve not. Sober James might ever have lived a life of deeper shit than I, but one’s devotion to their alcoholism is not how we wish to be remembered.
“Ole Roy could drink alright! Until he fell down those steps behind the bar…things never were the same for Ole Roy after that. We called him Roy the Wobbler after that, and I think it was us own town turning against him that drove him to the edge. It’s a sad story. But boy oh boy, could Ole Roy drink!”
– Definitely not how Ole Roy wants to be remembered.
Listening to Sober James reminded me of the uniqueness of my story, and not necessarily in a good way. Am I recovered alcoholic? Absolutely! My life had become unmanageable, and I had lost all control over my ability to stop consuming alcohol. How did I solve that problem? I moved into a hostel in Seattle with my gf, then 4 months later I broke up with my girlfriend and moved to live/work in a different hostel in San Francisco, and around this same time I also stopped smoking cigarettes, but I had begun to consume more marijuana than previous times in my life due to my living in an environment where it was recreationally legal. After 10 months in San Francisco I finally took my last drink [1 Pliney the Elder]. So I have quit smoking cigarettes, and quit drinking alcohol, but I still consume cannabis. This was as of July 4th 2018, which is the day I celebrate my sobriety. My last drink was actually on June 22nd, but it was upon July 4th 2017 that I made the firm decision to never drink again. This is where I differ from, say, individuals in Alcoholics Anonymous. AA supports that individuals are powerless over alcohol, but I believe just the opposite. The important day is not the day of your last drink. The important day is the day you choose to never have another one, and then you actually do that shit.

Everyay 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.

For more daily support, check out Sober James on YouTube. 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.
