The ASMR Daily 143

25 Vocabulary Words

Today we have 25 ASMR vocabulary words. They are presented in the fashion of ASMR, but actually have nothing to do with ASMR.

If Yesterday was an impromptu Spanish lesson, then today’s is prompted.

Do you know what a Springbok is? Scientifically named Antidorcas Marsupialis, the Springbok is a medium-sized antelope found mainly in southern and southwestern Africa. It is the sole member of the genus Antidorcas.

However biology nor geography class was the first place I heard the word Springbok. No, no. The first place I heard the word Springbok – which is actually more of a name than a word – was on YouTube! Thanks to Springbok ASMR, whom is presumably, and hopefully, still alive. Although she has not published an ASMR video in over three years.

Yikes! Three years? Is that…is that okay Spark?

Yes, yes, of course! Three years is no a large amount of time, and besides, every artist has the right to free expression, and this means that whenever they wish to stop expressing themselves, we should simply thank them for the work they have done; full stop.

I’ve legitimately listened to today’s Video Of The Day at least 50 times, yet still, I do not believe I know every single word she teaches about! Is this because my memory is poor? Or because I am distracted with other thoughts? Both are true…both are true.

Will Springbok reading to you some randomly chosen words and their definitions help you maintain sobriety? Well shiiiiiid. It totally worked for me! This video was a life saver for me. It’s so non-weird to put on a vocabulary building video, that it really allowed me to bring one of my favorite asmrtists everywhere, and not feel the least bit weird about it. Not everybody understands ASMR, and although I never shy away from a conversation about it, three years ago I wasn’t as confident and bold as I am today. I had an ex-girlfriend that thought ASMR was rather strange. She’s laying in bed with me…but then if I put on an ASMR video it almost felt like there was three people in the bed.

When you put on a vocabulary building ASMR video, it doesn’t feel like there is three people in the bed.

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.

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.
