what to know about inhalants
What to know about Inhalants
  • What are they?
  • If you’ve ever come across a smelly marker, you’ve experienced an inhalant. They seem harmless, but they can actually be quite dangerous.
  • Inhalants are chemical vapors that people inhale on purpose to get “high.” The vapors produce mind-altering, and sometimes disastrous, effects. These vapors are in a variety of products common in almost any home or workplace.
  • Examples of inhalants:
  • Are some paints, glues, gasoline, and cleaning fluids.
  • Many people do not think of these products as drugs because they were never meant to be used to achieve an intoxicating effect. But when they are intentionally inhaled to produce a “high,” they can cause serious harm.
  • Street names:
  • laughing gas, "snappers", "poppers", "whippets" "bold" and "rush"
more on inhalants
More on Inhalants
  • How they are abused?
  • Sniffing" or "snorting" fumes from containers
  • Spraying aerosols directly into the nose or mouth
  • Sniffing or inhaling fumes from substances sprayed or placed into a plastic or paper bag ("bagging")
  • "Huffing" from an inhalant-soaked rag stuffed in the mouth
  • Inhaling from balloons filled with nitrous oxide
  • Who abuses them and the data.
  • Inhalants are often among the first drugs that young adolescents abuse. In fact, they are one of the few classes of substances that are abused more by younger adolescents than older ones.
  • Data from national and state surveys suggest that inhalant abuse is most common among 7th through 9th graders
  • In 2010 8% of eight graders abused this substance
effects from huffing
Effects from huffing
  • The effects are similar to those produced by alcohol and may include slurred speech, lack of coordination, euphoria, and dizziness. The high usually lasts only a few minutes.
  • With repeated inhalations, many users feel less inhibited and less in control. Some may feel drowsy for several hours and experience a lingering headache
  • Inhalants can also effect parts of the brain.
  • This can cause problems with walking, talking, bending, memory, tremors,muscle spasms, and nerve damage
  • This can also effect your heart, liver and muscles
don t start
Don’t Start
  • Inhalants can become addictive and can lead to use of other more dangerous drugs.
  • This can be a dangerous and deadly substance.
  • Just one time could kill you or cause brain damage so don’t start.
