The ASMR Daily 161
Welcome to the day after Labor Day! Presumably you are back at work after a well deserved long weekend, but with the pandemic, did you really go back to work? I’ve never had an office job, I’ve only ever worked at restaurants, really; plus a little landscaping and snow removal. However I’m positive that I’ve never had a job which would have now been switched to remote work. No matter what your situation is – back at work, not back at work, or been outta work for months! I think today is a good day to focus on yourself, because really, the only battle in life that counts is the one you fight against yourself.
Today we’ve got Moosetonic on the blog, and not only is the ASMR she creates really good, she’s also a strong supporter of this blog! Which is awesome. I’ve been writing this daily blog since April 1st, and I’ve learned that the best way to reach individuals interested in reading about ASMR and how it relates to addiction recovery, is to receive recommendations from asmrtists themselves.
The French Whisperer gave me permission to post my blog in the comments section of some of his videos, and he even said he would “pin” my comment to the top. Alas, I never took advantage of that. I guess I am a bit shy. Also, I had more to learn. Today however, I am very confident in what I write; nothing too intense, but deliberately designed to help individuals fight addiction the slow way. My writing is equally as equipped to help individuals find and experience new asmrtists, and the ASMR they create.
That all being said, Thank You Moosetonic! For the continued support. I hope that other individuals within the ASMR Community follow suit of your example! Today is September 8th, and it’s been over 5 months since I started this blog. What would be growth? If the second 5 months looked like the first five months! SO! If you are a reader of this blog, I thank you for your readership! If you are an asmrtist reading this blog, well…you probably received an email from me recently, asking for your help to spread the word about this blog. No shame! My very specific goal is to help individuals suffering from addiction find solace in the ASMR Community. However, I believe the best way for things to happen is in an unsolicited fashion. So I will continue to write, and you will continue to make videos, but I hope you also consider sharing my work with your audience, so that those who would benefit from it, can find a confident voice in ASMR and Addiction Recovery.

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.

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.
