I have had a problem with smelling Sharpie Magnums (the biggest kind you can get) for about 5 months now. I never knew you could get addicted to the smell of a marker, but I truly believe that i am. My boyfriend works at a home improvement store doing stock, so he brings them home from work all of the time. 

It started out me just smelling them every once in a while just because i enjoyed the way they smell, It soon elevated to where i always carry one in my purse with me for when i get the craving. 
 
I have also started moving on to stronger things like rubbing alcohol and acetone. I hate the way they make me feel and what they are doing to me. I suffer from frequent headaches and my hair has started to fall out easier. But I just cant seem to stop.

Can anybody help me kick this bad habit?

Here's an idea mix your inhalants with something you truly hate the smell of. And those things like markers you cant mix scents with do this: get a close friend or relative to stick around and slap you in the face every time the see you with that within 4 inches of your nose. This is what I think is what you should do. How bad do you want to quit? I am not an Inhaler, although I sometimes sniff a marker about every once every 7 months.

The only thing ive huffed is markers, sometimes glue and fuel gasoline. It just gives you that relaxation which only pills would probably make you do. & I also agree it's the easiest to get on but hardest to get off ckuhz the odor's attraction has you HOOKED. Idont do it as often anymore but iwould still want to sniff a sharpie at least two more times

As most of you have already said, I am too addicted to rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, hand sanitizer, ect. I have read all of the labels, and looked up what they're doing to me online. I was horrified when I saw "can cause sudden death". I have cut back on these things, had someone hide the rubbing alcohol from me, had someone throw away the nail polish remover, and have cut back on hand sanitizer, but they're all so addictive when I come to even the slightest contact with them. IV pretty much stopped completely with the nail polish remover and rubbing alcohol, but still sniff them from time to time. Hand sanitizer is a whole different story though. When I see a bottle of it, I just can't help but squirt a little of it into my hands, cup them, and take a long and hard sniff of it. It has been about 3 week's since IV done that though. I did it just twice today though. I was stressed at the times and it calmed my nerves. I have heard that tea tree oil can help and it's good for you so I might just get some soon. If anyone has any thoughts they can share with me on how to shake this strange addiction, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you all for listening.

Well I am going to give my personal opinion for the person who started this topic. I would not classify what you are doing as an addiction. While no it is probably not good for your body, I would say you are at the point or sniffing substances that are extremely bad to your mind and body. The tea tree oil stuff and the other that sounds great a healthy think to replace your habit with. Find more things like that but the best thing you could do is just not sniff at all anymore. I use to be addicted to sniffing gasoline. I would take the gas can and get the top off and put my nose to it and just inhale almost straight fumes till I was "beyond high" in my opinion and I would sit till it started to ware off then I would do it again. I did this for 4 hours straight for 4 months. It damaged my brain and I haven't been the same person since. My mind does feel right anymore and I have developed extreme anxiety and paranoia, bipolar/depression, anger issues and a couple other things. I lost my old self and from the irreversible damage I won't have it back ever. I just don't want to see another person lose themselves, the person they were before they started. Yours sounds like more of just a habit and not a getting high thing. While yours isn't doing nearly as much damage as what I use to do. Over time it will eventually damage you so find something safe to sniff. Look for things like essential oils they smell great and are therapeutic and have health benefits. I think those would be great for you. To the people that are sniffing/huffing for the high, I would advice either switching to Weed if it legal in your area or quiting and seeking help immediately. I wish you the best, make me proud my friend! I will pray for you!
