The ASMR Daily 38

In today’s video, we talk a walk down my favorite street in the world, Market Street.

Market Street is the longest stretch of flat earth in San Francisco. Walking down the street on any normal day, you will see the exorbitantly wealthy, and you will see the crumbling destitute. You will see the proletariat, and you will see the prostitute. You will see Twin Peaks, and the Ferry Building…just not at the same time.

The video below is obviously not a new video, since it was shot on April 14th, 1906. However, this restored version allows you to be fully present on Market Street, just four days before the famous and fateful earthquake of 1906. The man who restored the video does some talking at the beginning, which isn’t very relaxing, but still, I encourage you to watch the video, and as always, spend a couple minutes focused on something other than your addictions, anxiety, depression, or anything else which plagues your life during these dire times.

The Miles Brothers

Was that a trip through history or what!? It remains however, that we cannot talk about the above footage, without also talking about the footage below, which was filmed after the earthquake.

There is a third piece of footage that eludes me! I’m positive there is a video, shot by the same people as the April 14th video, the Miles Brothers, except the film of which I speak was shot after the great earthquake/fire of 1906. The film was lost to history until someone found it at the Alemany Flea Market. It’s discovery was announced by the San Francisco Chronicle on March 4th, 2018.

You know what? I was going to make this a rather long article where I talked about my insecurities; better to say: my lack on insecurities. I’m a recovered alcoholic that’s been given a third chance at life! I am not worried about much. Do I dream big af? Yes! Do I believe I can help you dream big af, confidently, and in a safe way, so that you end up accomplishing your goals instead of getting squished by them? Absolutely! A second article is coming today, but right now, I am going to eat a little breakfast and take a morning walk.

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.
