The ASMR Daily 5
I love asmr videos that are centralized around the artist talking, and SpringbokASMR has been one of my go-to artists for a long time because of that. As an added bonus, she is a huge fan of Science Fiction! and when I discovered the video below I was so excited!
Oh my, I found this was such a long time ago.
Over four years ago now.
Part of my story, and why I advocate so confidently for asmr, is because I use it to help control a huge issue in my life.
That issue is alcoholism.
When I discovered ASMR in 2013, I was not in a good place. Physically I was safe and sound, living in my grandparent’s basement. Mentally I was not well. That basement however, is where I put the healing properties of Auditory Sensory Meridian Response to work.
I digress; more about that later.
Have you ever heard of Battlestar Galactica? It’s a TV show from the 70’s that got a reboot about ten years ago.
The following is from the ‘Plot’ section of 1978 series Wikipedia page:
“In a distant star system, the Twelve Colonies of Mankind were reaching the end of a thousand-year war with the Cylons, warrior robots created by a reptilian race which expired long ago, presumably destroyed by their own creations.”
Not your cup of tea? Well you’re in luck, because today’s video isn’t bogged down with nerdy mumbo-jumbo. Or…maybe it is, but if your purpose is to sleep you might not be bothered. On the contrary, something you find snoozeworthy is exactly what you need!

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.
