Sneaking Out Of The Royal Ball
Alcoholism can make you so tired, that you are death, you just haven’t died yet. Even today, when I am forcing myself to get out of bed after almost no sleep so that I can publish this article by 08:00, I feel amazing in comparison to how the deepest parts of my alcoholism had me feeling. Any observer would clearly be able to tell the difference as well, because today I actually got out of bed, and back when I was drinking everyday I would have felt no obligation to rise from my bed. That’s a catch 22 however, because in the past when I didn’t want to do something, like get out of bed, I would’ve used alcohol as the motivator. Some people say you can’t drink all day unless you start in the morning. I say you can’t drink all year unless you start in January. With an attitude like that, it’s no wonder I had a problem.
Or is it that I still have a problem? You see, the problem never goes away, but it is possible to gain control of the problem and contort so that you fear it. That’s what I did. After 5 months sober I took a one way flight to India, and I knew almost for certain that if I got drunk I would end up in some Indian jail somewhere…at the end of my alcoholism all I did was blackout and get violent. Of course that had to do with the alcohol destroying my brain, but it also had to do with my general displeasure of life.
It took seven years of actively trying to rid myself of my destructive addictions, but I have great confidence that you can do it faster than that. Also, I don’t believe that an individual needs to thrust themselves into high-risk and unfamiliar situation like I did in flying to India. However if it is only fear of travel, or enrollment, or commitment that stands in your way, and not fear of your own addictions, then there is nothing to fear.
Welcome to a different world. Moongem ASMR has created a masterpiece with today’s Video Of The Day, and I absolutely love the music that plays in the background of this video. It sets the mood in a major way, and whisks me away to a different part of the universe. I believe that was her intention, and when an asmrtist can relax us, give us tingles, and draw from within us certain emotions using the pinpoint targeting of music…well, that’s the ASMR I like best.

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.
