i really thought i was the only person out there addicted to smelling rubbing alcohol.  i have been sniffing if for a few years now and just cant stop.  the only time i stopped was when i found out i was pregnant back in 2011.  about 6 months after i had my baby i started sniffing it again.  i tried not to get back into it but i would pour a bunch on my hands to sanitize them then wash my hands with soapy water before i picked my son up. smelling it for that little time when i was only trying to keep my son "germ free" got me hooked again. now i go in the bathroom and squirt some in my hands then rub them together and sniff away.  ive sat in the bathroom for 15 minutes sniffing it while my 15 year old is watching her brother.  i know she smells it because she has said something to me about it, i tell her im sanitizing my hands.  ive sniffed the 91% but i prefer the 70%  ive tried putting it on a washcloth and sniffing that but i like the feel of it on my hands.  im not sure how to stop, the only time i quit was when i was pregnant but thats no reason to have a baby!  sitting here typing this im having a craving to go sniff it, my mouth is watering and my hands are starting to shake.  please someone help me!!!

i have still not been able to stop.  i tried to cut down and slowly ween myself off it but that backfired.  i tried to sniff it only 7 times the first day and then the next day i was going to do only 5 but my brain said "you started at too low a number" so that day i went way over, i think i went through half of a big bottle.  i dont think that im getting high *i wont lie, ive smoked marijuana before so i know what it feels like to get high*  i just LOVE the smell of rubbing alcohol.  if i could i would sniff it all day long.  i think im getting too used to the 70% its not as strong smelling as before.  i know i should stop but without help i dont see that happening.  im a single mother with no transportation so trying to get to a meeting of any kind is pretty much out of the questionsomeone please help me, is there a number i can call to talk to someone over the phone to get help?

i ran out of rubbing alcohol the other day but was too sick to go get more so i thought here is my chance to kick the habit.  my daughter thought she would be nice and went to the store to get more for the house (i do use it to clean the bathroom) she ended up getting 91% (not knowing there was a difference) ive found myself going into the bathroom more often to smell it than i did with the 70%  i just dont know what to do...

Hello,

No, you're not the only person addicted to rubbing alcohol. I too like the way it smells and always have--along with nail polish remover, Lysol, Windex, gasoline, and hand sanitizer (only certain type of things). I too start to salivate when I think about it and begin to shake. I tend to be in a bad mood when I can't get my hands on them like I want. I have suffered with it for years now and thought that I was in doom and despair--still really feel like it at times. A huge part of me is relieved that I found this forum. I have never been a part of one. I have been living with this shame for a long while now and it is tearing my life a part. You feel like you can't tell anyone because you fear they will treat you differently. Surprisingly, many people don't even know what inhalant abuse is and it's basically impossible to find support groups anywhere for it. I have a wonderful husband, a great government job, and decent life. I became addicted to this stuff at around 18 years old and am now going on 33. I was addicted, at first, from 18 to about 23. Then I recovered. Then about two years ago, it raised its ugly head again. I feel terrible because I feel that I am ruining my marriage. My emotional health has completely changed in that I am highly irritated all the time. I snap at my husband a lot and am having problems at work. The thoughts and craving "hit" me like a ton of bricks all the time and I do my best to stop them, but I fail much of the time. I find myself sneaking away to do it whether I'm at work or church! I feel totally alone. I love my husband, but he can't even begin to understand what I am going through. He is a very sweet man with a big heart that loves me, but he has not walked the same road as I. Sometimes I wish that we were not together simply so that I won't make things hard for him--I love him too much. How shameful is it to have a wife that has a drug addiction. It's horrible!

I went to my doctor recently to get help and ended up feeling like a fool--my doctor doesn't even know what inhalant addiction is. I then figured that she would be no help at all. I just want to find a support group with which I can totally release all m feelings, fears, pains, regrets, etc. I want so badly to stop. My only hope is in God.

At least I know I am not alone out here.......
