Hello all,

I'm 22 years old and currently on probation for DWI that happened last year. I have an addictive personality and since probation prevents me from drinking or smoking pot (my former drug of choice) I started abusing nitrous oxide. I actually discovered this drug before I was placed on probation and developed some bad habits with it. Now that it's my only real option for getting that buzz I'm looking for, I use it far too much. Several months ago I was a daily abuser. This caused some severe depression and I didn't like the way it made me feel.

I've cut down to using it only once or twice a week, which is still way too much. I will buy 3 or 4 boxes of 24 cartridges and inhale them until they're gone. The first few feel amazing and seem to provide me with an indescribable higher perspective on my life. But I can't stop once I start. I've wasted thousands of dollars on them. At the present I'm spending about a hundred dollars a week on them (it was much worse before). One reason I've cut down is because I'm starting to experience symptoms of B12 depletion, tingling in the fingers and toes, as well as Lhermitte's sign (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lhermitte's_sign). This scares me to no end but it isn't enough to stop me from inhaling.

I'm looking for any words of encouragement to get me out of this funk. Why can't I just be happy sober? Why is that so hard for me? Ughh...

Thank you for posting about your situation.  Please take the next step and call some drug addiction programs to get some professional help.  You're very fortunate as my friend actually has a severe BRAIN INJURY from inhalant use at the age of 12, now in her 30s.  Since the huffing is already causing some health issues, perhaps that is a wake-up call to seek counseling for addiction problems.  You may be aware, but a person can die or get permanent neurological (brain, spinal cord, nerves) damage even after the very *first* time of use.  Therefore, you're correct that even using an inhalant once or twice a week is still way too much.

There is no type of safe inhalant.  Please, at least, start attending some 12-step Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings.  (One may attend an "open" AA meeting if there is no drinking problem.)  Please also talk to your family doctor about the tingling in the fingers and toes and other current symptoms.

Hoping that you decide to take control of your life and make good, HEALTHY choices

lovekizi90 - Inhalant addiction is just that - an addiction.  Most people with an addiction(s) require ongoing support and counseling.  If you haven't entered counseling for those with addiction issues, please call some local centers to inquire about Addictions counseling.

With regard to those 12-step programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), here is a website that has some common mottos pertaining to the 12-step groups, including "One day at a time", "First things first" and "People, places and things":  http://www.royy.com/toolsofrecovery.html

I know exactly how you feel. My boyfriend has recently told me that if i don't quit using nitrous he was going to leave me. So now I'm ordering it off of amazon hoping it is delivered while he is at work! I feel terrible about it.....until i use it! I'm also a mother of 2 small children so I don't like being alone with them while I'm on it, which makes it really really hard. I too have gotten into trouble and have drug tests and live in Oklahoma where marijuana isn't legal. If it were I really don't think that I would be having this problem. I really feel for you. If you have gotten help or know of anything that will help, please let me know! 
Thank you so much!
