Hey my names Dan I wouldn't persay say that I'm addicted to inhalants I've just been suffering from the effects of them such as drooling, full body spasms, irritability, hand tremors, and motor skills problems. It's been happening to me for about 5 years, it makes me nervous, anxious depressed and infuriated it's slowly starting to recede but I can't really live a functioning life at all. I get terrible social anxiety, somebody told me it could last up to 10 years if not a lifetime. I was just wondering if anybody also suffers from anything like this or closely related to it, so I wouldn't be so alone trying to figure this thing out please and thank you.

Hello, how long ago have you stopped? My on/off again boyfriend got into this and he has the same problems that you talk of, he has been using heavily 5-7 cans per day for about 8 months. I have tried getting him to stop, he has lost everything and I mean everything!! I know he will be spending some time in jail I'm guessing a year from all the trouble he has been in and I hope to god he can make it until that happens, that's in Jan he gets sentenced.
He truly wants to stop but I just don't think he knows how. Do you or anyone reading this have any ideas for me to help him, he won't go into treatment, but is it possible to just do less and less and get off of it this way? He has totaled 4 cars with in like 3 months thank god he hasn't hurt anyone or himself! I love this man and I will never give up on him. He has pushed me away many times but still reaches out to me...this is just an awful thing to watch happen to such a smart,loving,caring man [frown]

I been with the same problem for 8 years now ! I tried seeing a neurologist and the cat scan and Mri came back normal I was devastated so I Hurd from someone on here that said HBOT sessions might help and even though it was a lot of money I went ahead and did it but it didn't work for me ! I guess I just gotta live to tell about its dangers because not that long ago I can across someone who was huffing and I knew it wasn't a coincidence God put her in my way for a reason and even though I Know my life will never be normal again I was able to still live a some what normal life even though I'm. Far from normal I got a husband who's crazy in love with me and 2 beautiful kids . Don't lose hope make the best out of it❤️

I just got done with a two day stint of time with my love, I asked him ahead of time if I could record him during his use to play back at a later time, which he was perfectly fine with me doing this. Some clips I have are 10 mins long and what I did notice during this is he stops breathing, I focus the camera on his stomach area because it's the easiest way to see if he is breathing and he literally stops for over a mine at least each time then I push on him and call his name...almost panicked wo drink if he will start to breath again or not then almost of a sudden he starts breathing really hard.
I played back one of these yesterday when I was alone and I couldn't even watch it all, I asked myself how the hell did you make it through watching this in person [frown]
I'm to the point I'd rather be there for him even though he still is using because if something does happen and he stops breathing I can get him help versus him laying alone in his room. I'm also looking into CPR class because I have no idea how to do it correctly and I know it's something good to learn anyway regardless of the situation I am in.
He did find out he will be getting 8 months of jail and 1 year probation for all the troubles he has got into as of the past 6 months.
I told this man that no matter what I will never turn my back on him, I will always be there to help him to try and get better I just hope he can make it a little more then a month until he is locked up.
At this point in time he says when I asked if when he gets out if he thinks he will go back to the air cleaner and he said yes without delay, I hope that's just his messed up head thinking.
