Question Is inhaling sharpies and markers safe? - November 19th 2009, 11:46 PM

Hey, i wanted to ask you guys. theres this site i went on thats supposed to be for kids and stuff. (i was looking up safe ways to get high since i heard about huffing and it was really bad for you) i thought "well is their anything you can do to get high and it be safe?
so i typed it in and their it was, saying inhaling sharpies by inhaling it from your nose was completly safe, and you can do it as much as you want.
and you will feel completly high. i want to try inhaling sharpies but im afraid to since i heard that kids died from huffing up paint thinner, hair spray, ect. just ONE TIME. they were gone forever. thats why im afraid too. so i wanna ask you, is inhaling sharpies and markers actullay safe?
i wasnt toatally convinced it was from the site, it seemed kind of in a toatal joking matter but mabie i just took it the wrong way.
so is it safe? just asking, i wud really l0ve to hear from you guys!

Met you from a tie between u and me buddy,
Saw you from my wired eyes with a twisted little lie, and my mind told me negative when i had a wish to own you with my heart, buddy and you split like twigs, senses told her i fell for him, and she told me "i loved him, and go get him" And while i said "negative he said "correct" <3

Me and ? = 3 days which =correct

well the high u get from then is a lack of oxygen to the brain so in short no its not safe its not gunna kill u right away like some other drugs but cutting off air to the brain will kill brain cells and mess u up later
honestly the safest high ive read about was weed

woooah man, no inhaling markers and shit is not safe at all. the chemicals that would be going into your brain CANNOT be good for you.

too be honest, I don't know exactly why it is bad for you due too i've never had the urge to inhale markers, but I can tell 100% that its not safe.

DEFINITELY NOT safe. Whatever you read about it was very wrong. Lemme guess... It was written by some kids? The chemicals in markers are extremely toxic. Getting high is stupid anyway you do it.

i've tried alot of different things but inhaling this just sounds stupid (chemicals and wouldnt even give that much of a high imo)

if you're looking for legal highs, you can try eating nutmeg (lolololol).

afaik nothing bad can happen, but it just tastes like crap and you have to eat a fair amount of it to feel anything (and its just like a long mediocre high)

I do not promote or endorse useage of foreign substances.

Otherwise you could just do alot of excercise which makes your brain release endorphins (the chemicals that make you feel good + happy)

it's the beauty of confession

Like everyone else said above, it's not safe at all. When looking for 'highs' you will find very few that are legal and safe. Especially safe, they are hard to find. The basic answer to this is sharpies and markers and paint are NOT safe to inhale because of their fumes. They have been proven to kill off brain cells. Which, is not good.

Because that is the straight answer, I'm going to go ahead and close this thread. Stay safe and strong.

Don't you worry your pretty little mind, people throw rocks at things that shine..
