The ASMR Daily 52
Unintelligible whispering has always been a favorite trigger of mine. It’s a real test of the mind, you see, because the listener absolutely must tune out the endless possibilities of what the artist is saying. If you try to understand the words that are behind an unintelligible whispering video [also known as inaudible whispering], you’re gonna have a bad time.
For the first time on the blog, we have FrivolousFox ASMR. She is newer on the scene than some asmrtists, but she’s definitely not “new,” as I would define the word within the community. Without going to look…I am going to guess her oldest video is about three years. OKAY NOW IM GONNA LOOK!
I was wrong. The oldest video [which was a live stream] on her channel is from May 3rd, 2016. This means she just celebrated her four year anniversary with YouTube! Congratulations Frivvi!
Do you see what I’m talking about when I say you must give up on understanding the words? Back when I was actively using ASMR to cope with severe alcoholism [I’m almost two years sober now], I loved these videos. I still enjoy unintelligible whispering, but my problems are different than they used to be, and thusly so is the ASMR I listen to/watch.
When you are deep-set in your own problems and you need someone, but you prefer that ‘someone’ to be doing something so you don’t feel bad about taking their time from them, because at the same time you have so much going on in your head that you can’t be bothered to listen to the blights of other individuals…unintelligible triggers hit the spot.
So who is Frivolous Fox? Well, I don’t know her personally or anything, but I will say that the “about” section on Frivvi’s YouTube channel is one of the most impact I have come across within the asmr community.
Over the years I have developed a full-bloom philosophy on the topic of belief. When I say “I believe you,” I am not, as many people think, just saying “okay bro,” or responding to your statement on auto pilot. no. When I say “I believe you,” it means I have given thought to your story, statement [or lack of], and in return I am producing my most honest sentiment.
When I read your “about” page, Frivvi, I believe you.
Many people take those three words as an insult, but that is a risk I am willing to take. When I was a kid, I had a friend that was a compulsive liar. I use the example: “If you asked him what he ate for breakfast, and he ate Cheerios, he would tell you he ate Frosted Flakes,” and that ish is no joke. The guy would lie [my childhood friend].
Well, ten years later I’ve developed a strong philosophy about belief. I think it’s important to acknowledge belief. So while it may sound nonchalant, or even, it may sound like I almost accuse you of lying [not the artist that created today video, but anyone], I’ll have you know that sometimes…I say the words “I don’t believe you,” and that sentence carries a lot of weight when you are on the receiving end of it.

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.
