Sniffing nail polish and remover? - May 13th 2012, 06:30 AM

Okay, so recently I've been sniffing nail polish and remover. Is this bad?

Yes. Those fumes aren't good for you!


Someday we will find what we are looking for. Or maybe we won't. Maybe we'll find something much greater than that..

I don't know why I've been doing it. Just started it and now it's a habit. It's weird.

This is probably why its hard for you to stop:
Quote:
Inhalants provide an instant "rush" and, like alcohol, cause euphoria followed by central nervous system depression.
And this is why you should stop:
Quote:
Deep breathing of the toxic vapors may result in losing touch with one’s surroundings, a loss of self-control, violent behavior, nausea, unconsciousness, giddiness, loss of inhibition, loss of appetite, and, at higher doses, hallucinations. Inhalants can cause loss of motor skills, slurred speech, heart palpitations, seizures, nausea and vomiting. Signs of inhalant abuse include "huffer’s rash" or drying and redness around the mouth and nose, spots or sores around the mouth and red or runny eyes or nose. However, these findings are very uncommon even in chronic inhalant abusers. More common ones are paint or stains on the body or clothing; chemical breath odor; drunk, dazed, or dizzy appearance; an unexplained collection of abusable products; anxiety, excitability, and irritability.
Information found here: http://www.inhalants.org/final_medical.htm

Its pretty dangerous to use inhalants such as nail polish remover. General nail polish is fine, but the fumes from nail polish remover can be harmful for your nose along with your brain.

This is not a "habit" but rather a genuine addiction. As Nicole stated, you must stop this behaviour ASAP, as it can kill you faster than a drug over dose. Happened to a bunch of kids in the 90's with white-out.

It does sound like a mental addiction. You can't get physically addicted to nail polish remover.
But it is pretty harmful, so its best to try and stop. If needed, hide it somewhere or place it in your parents bathroom so that you won't have access to it.
