The Best Videos For Recovery
My name is Chris, and I am an alcoholic. Using ASMR videos to fight my urges to drink, one by one, I overcame my alcoholism. With ASMR as my rock, I traveled around the world fearless of relapse, because I felt, and still feel, very confident in my tools to maintain a sober life. Along with ASMR I find going for a walk while listening to music helps me manage urges. Planning and setting small goals continually helps me stay busy, which also contributes to how I fight addictive urges.
When I first began to take my recovery seriously, which was late 2012, the types of videos that exists today just weren’t around back then! So! All that being said, it is with great pleasure I present to you one of the best asmrtists I’ve ever discovered for addiction recovery: ASMR Haven! Her videos are absolutely what you want when you intend to fight urges using YouTube videos. Every video she creates is, for all intents and purposes, the same: There is never any talking, and there is never too much silence either. Her videos have themes, so you get the satisfaction of organization. Last but not least, you never see ASMR Haven’s eyes. This technique of avoiding a full camera portrait I believe allows for more focus and mindfulness, which for the purposes of pseudo-medical remedies is very important. Whatever is causing you the urge to consume – maybe you just don’t want to look at anybody right now! Online or IRL! Well, ASMR Haven’s got your back through and through. Currently she has 49 videos, but she releases new content several times every week.
You see, Haven is a p-r-o-f-e-s-s-i-o-n-a-l. She is also a God of ASMR, but that’s only my point of view. She openly admits to being a professional though. Don’t you want a confident artist when you decide to go beast-mode and achieve your final leap to sobriety?
I often remind people that if I wanted to, I could go have a drink tomorrow ~ only if I wanted to go back to being an alcoholic! It’s a choice; alcoholism is a disease as much as it is a choice. Nobody chooses to be an alcoholic, but most people when they are sick, decide to get themselves better. Alcoholics suffer in a way that compels them to avoid treatment for their illness! This is a common theme in the mental health world! Individuals with mental health issues often avoid treatment. Is this because of the way their mind deceives them? Or is this because mental health has been more or a sentence than a diagnosis until recent years? I know not! What I do know, is that ASMR is free, it is voluntary, and it is non invasive! So if you have made the decision to act upon your alcoholism or addiction; the disease that you have, using ASMR as a way to fight the urge to consume is one of the most risk-free investments of your time that can be made in regards to addiction recovery. Heck, reading this article is more of an investment than watching a video! Not in time, but in purpose of application.
If you have no addiction problems but you are reading this, I am guessing you are familiar with addiction and how it plagues individuals in America and The World across. I appreciate your continued support as a reader, and as always, I will be back tomorrow with another votd article! If you are in recovery, consider my sobriety model, which I have written about below. Also check out Sober James on YouTube if you are interested in live-streaming sessions for individuals suffering from alcoholism or addiction. That link is also below.

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 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.
