The ASMR Daily 17
Today, we have a video that is not ASMR. Still, I think this video can be a great tool in overcoming alcoholism and other addictions. Oh boy I am excited! I think you will quite enjoy today’s adventure.
I will say this! When you watch today’s video…and it gives you the urge to go out, and live life to the fullest! Do not! and this part is important Do not connect that feeling with the urge to drink/use drugs.
The truth is, I am so confident that you would connect living-life, to drinking-alcohol, that I’m not scared I put such an idea in your head. We both know you like to drink when you do stuff…new stuff, old stuff…red stuff, blue stuff…all alone stuff, or with the crew stuff! You like getting fucking knockered off your rocker! I know this! You fucking addict you…Now listen to me! You can go and do anything you want with you life! Anything! But you and I both know, that if you drink alcohol, you will fail. You will not be able to keep your friends, or pay the bills, and beyond that you won’t be able to make long term plans, get organized, or achieve long term goals.
No matter what you have achieved as an alcoholic, I believe the happiness you achieve from sobriety will be greater still. Alcoholism is like bootcamp.
You only have to do it once.
Shiey is a YouTuber I have come across before, probably from viral videos [I realized this when I went back on his page to watch his first video]. Now! Why am I recommending this video? Well, here at asmr.community, we recommend all types of free materials available online that we personally believe can help you over come you addictions.
If you don’t know my story, I quit drinking alcohol on July 4th 2018. After I quit, I realized how much ASMR had been a help to my success [all the way back to 2013 when I first discovered it], and so, I decided to write a blog to help other people.
Soon after I began, I realized that since ASMR wasn’t the only thing I used to get sober, it shouldn’t be the only thing I recommend on this blog. I just needed to give myself that option; that out, to post non-asmr related content if I thought it would be helpful to alcoholics and addicts.
Fast forward to Shiey and today’s #votd. One hour and thirty minutes! !SPOILER ALERT! He does not get in any trouble. That isn’t the vibe he is trying to set for his channel! No stress…I promise, you can watch this stress free. I’m pretty sure all of his videos are stress free, unless otherwise noted in the title.
Okayokayokay I will say, that I think today’s video can be a little…intense…for our readers that maybe feel like they haven’t gotten the most out of life, and to those folks I say: Perhaps this is life trying to get the most out of you!

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.
