That is very bad for you. You should call:
911
1-800-222-1222
1-800-972-3323
These would be the best. And also you should TELL YOUR PARENTS! Even if you think they'll get mad, they are the BEST ones to help you right now.

Actually, this isn't unhealthy for you.
Is it because you like the scents of it?
If so, then I would try some scented candles. Get a few so you can keep changing the scent so you won't get used to it and can always smell it.
A lot of deodorant companies are not making body sprays with the same scents. Maybe try those out?

Best of luck!

Were you pressing it against your mouth?

You really should stop. Solvent abuse can kill instantly. Its also not an addiction, but a habit you've developed.

If it's just taking whiffs of a solid stick I don't see as much issue with it. Scented candles are a good suggestion.

But, are you actually INHALING the spray can kind? Because that is very very unhealthy and I'd suggest telling someone so you can get help stopping it.

Am I allowed to say a safer way of doing it, in the event of her continuing to abuse solvents; or would that be against the rules? Because if she's doing it by spraying it in her mouth or breathing the fumes as she sprays it, as I suspect, its a lot more dangerous with regard to sudden death.

agreed, they also make alot of those spray can kinds with isobutane and butane, the stuff they put in lighters its VERY bad for you. try getting inscense even they give off a stronger scent than scented candles i find

Basically what everyone else said.
If you are inhaling the spray kind, GET HELP. That is very dangerous, it kills braincells, and can easily kill you.
Just smelling the stick kind? It depends on how long and often you are doing it, but I really don't see a problem.
But I'm guessing it's inhalants or it wouldn't be as much of a problem.
