The ASMR Daily 50
Did you read yesterdays article where I talked about how both Gibi and Raffy Taphy are the G.O.A.T. [That means Greatest Of All Time]? Well, I thought it would be very fitting if I made today’s Video Of The Day “ASMR gentle sounds for sleep” by RaffyTaphyASMR.
If you reading this blog because you love ASMR, I Thank You a-million times over for joining us. However, as I get further and further into this project, I want everyone to know what my goal is here, and that way we can all help spread the word.
I believe ASMR can help alcoholics and addicts achieve sobriety.
Now of course, if you are not aware, there are no guaranteed results here. This is because I can by no means guarantee that you, or anyone you know is forsure going to achieve sobriety; and this is with, or without the help of ASMR.
Myself? I smoked cigarettes for 10+ years, and I had a severe addiction to various drugs and alcohol for about 7 years. Was it easy to quit drinking? Hell no. It was the most difficult thing I’ve ever done! In fact, after I quit drinking, I felt indestructible! I felt fearless! So what did I do with my lack of fear? I flew to Kolkata, India, even though I had never left the United States before.
You heard that right. The first time I left my home country, I dove straight into the deep-end.
If you don’t know why I consider going to India as “diving in the deep end,” I’ll tell you I gained that knowledge being part of the backpacking community, and while working at a hostel for about a year. It’s pretty well known that India’s strong culture, along with it’s extreme level of poverty make for a unique and difficult place to travel. If you are thinking about going to India, I highly encourage you to follow those dreams. But I won’t tell you it’s going to be comfortable. It’s going to be…different. Anyway, you can be sure I will talk about this subject more in the future. Currently however, I digress…
Was ASMR the only tool I used to quit drinking alcohol and quit smoking cigarettes? Nope. I discovered many tools that helped me along the way, including becoming a nomadic person.
I’m here to help you fight the good fight! Whatever that fight may be. You could be battling anxiety, depression, paranoia, fomo [fear of missing out], or, yes, even addiction.
They say admitting your problem[s] is the first step to recovery. Well, I’ll tell you something I’ve told hundreds of people over the years: You can lie to you, but you cannot lie to me.
Lucky for you this blog is a one way street. That being said, I must encourage you not to lie to yourself!
So…, tell yourself the truth, what bring you to this blog? More so, what are you pondering right now?
No matter what it is, I am happy you are joining us, and you can look forward to me being here with a new article for you 7 days a week, 365.25 days a year [that’s how many days are in a year, but we add the .25’s together and just live them out during leap year (2020 is a leap year!)]
Do you know anyone that was born on February 29th? Let us know on social media! The links are allllll the way at the bottom of this article. Happy Wednesday!

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.
