Inhalant addiction and abuse.

Inhalant addiction is not as common as other drug abuse but it is possible to develop physical and psychological dependence on them which may be difficult to stop because of such easy access. They are often flammable substances that vaporize at room temperature and included a multitude of chemicals and anesthetics, which are gases used to reduce sensitivity to pain. Inhalant addiction symptoms can range in severity and manifestation.

Inhalants are often common things kept under the kitchen sink or in the garage. They can be liquids, gases, or sprays. Nitrites are usually considered separately since they affect the central nervous system directly and act like a muscle relaxer, but they can cause blindness. Just doing this drug once can result in an overdose.

The chemicals that are inhaled quickly get absorbed into the bloodstream and quickly reach the brain and other organs which can cause irreversible mental and physical damage. They do not allow the body to get oxygen which forces the heart to beat irregularly fast and can cause damage to the liver, heart, kidneys, brain, bone marrow, and other organs. Users can have bloody noses and nausea. They can also lose their sense of smell and hearing. Inhalants are used mostly by teens, but is not limited to them or any social class. Since they are so easily accessible anyone can abuse them. Inhalant abuse often leads to harder substances and other addictions, especially as a tolerance builds. As the user’s tolerance builds it may be harder to quit the drug, and symptoms of inhalant detox and withdrawals may increase.
