The ASMR Daily 122
The Ring of the Nibelung
The French Whisperer has carved himself out a place not only in the ASMR Community, but also in the history books. His most recent video takes us through the Black Forest in Germany, and teaches us about The Ring of the Nibelung. Now, I haven’t actually watched the video yet, but TFW has been making videos for a long, long time. When he publishes something, I know what I am getting. Quality content, a deep voice, and trusted knowledge. I’ve never fact-checked TFW, but I also don’t feel like I have to. Its not like he’s POTUS.
The French Whisperer ASMR
Two friggin hours and seventeen minutes! Now that’s an ASMR video. Not to diminish shorter videos, but TFW really provides a lot with his channel.
Sometimes I worry that ASMR provides an unhealthy level comfort for individuals. However, when it comes to addiction recovery, becoming “too attached” to ASMR creators is a healthy alternative to alcoholism or drug addiction. If you’re using ASMR as an excuse for not getting out of bed, that’s unhealthy. If you’re using ASMR to stay in bed and fight an addiction, that’s healthy. If you’re using ASMR to stay in bed and learn about The Ring of the Nibelung, that also seems pretty healthy. If you’re using ASMR as a placeholder for a significant other, that’s unhealthy. When you watch an ASMR video and afterwards find yourself romanticizing about the creator, you might find yourself in an unhealthy situation later on; everyone is different. What I do know, is that unfortunately, it is possible to have too much of a good thing.
Honestly, I wouldn’t worry about any of that right now. If watching ASMR makes you happy, then you will indulge in it! The creators are the ones responsible for how the Community will progress. Businesses as entities and CEO’s always lead the way in innovation, so I’m not going to scold the individuals watching videos. Heck! I’m not even going to scold the creators. All I’m doing is reminding you to maintain your vigilance in regards to ASMR consumption. It’s easy to fall into the virtual world of online whispers and all the sudden three years have gone by and all you’ve done is go to work and listen to people whisper. Although, I also think that is a great way to fight alcoholism lol, so it’s a fine line to walk. We will walk further tomorrow, and everyday after. I hope to see you there!

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.
