Anyonehere....yes, my daughter has a very good support system with us, her parents, and probation officer and even her counselors. I told her today she's lucky as hell. I even had her read your post about huffing in the car. Because she was caught a couple times at home, she resorted to sneaking away to do it...and ALSO caught. That's a good thing in a way I guess. About being in the front seat...she has a degree in criminal justice, and knows all the laws. I was surprised too, but she said drinking or under the influence and being in the front shows possible intent to drive, even if keys aren't in the ignition, so that's why she went into the back seat. I don't know about the laws in other states, but it's true here. Before she did it, she had the presence of mind to know that. I wonder how people look into the car and see a person back there and call cops. If I saw someone in the back, in a parking lot, I'd assume they were sleeping, lol, while the driver went into the store to buy something. Guess that's me being stupid to this scene. Now I'll know better. But thank God for those people because the person could have stopped breathing, had a heart attack or whatever else. My daughter has a good relationship with her prob officer. he was so disappointed when paperwork turned up on his desk when she was brought to emergency the first time. he came to the house and actually yelled at her. he said he trusted she cut any crap, told her to get resigned up for group and one on one (which she had already reached out to the counselor before she knew he knew) and had to go back to seeing him once a week. It was once a month. I think all of that was necessary though.

I can relate to everyone. I just lost my boyfriend of 6 and a half years to duster. This is so heart breaking for me. He had been in and out of rehab. It wasn't an easy road but I stood by him because I truly loved him. I tried to help, be understanding but the reason he used duster was to medicate. He was sexually abused as a child and even saw his dad get murdered right in front of him. He had PTSD from it and has been trying to cope with it for years. I will always love him....

Hi y name is Kelley. I was reading your story and was wondering how your daughter was doing? I was on here a year ago frantically looking for help for my 22 year old daughter. I didn't get much response either. My daughter passed away September 12 2017 from huffing duster. Her boyfriend went to wake her up for work at 5 am and she had passed. It was the hardest day of my life!! I knew she had a problem huffing I fought the battle with her for 4 years. I knew it could kill her but I thought that only happens to other people. Well it happened! I miss her every day! I really hope your daughter is doing well. My advice would be don't take this addiction lightly! Do whatever you can to keep her from huffing.. Wish the best for you and your family. If you search my user name you can read the helI I went threw when I posted on here.
