And please don't make the same mistake my fiance' made. He didn't even know what hit him and now he's dead and we all are left to suffer. I hope you get some help and are able to stay away from it. THIS STUFF KILLS. Jarod's dead, you don't have to be. Learn from what he did. That is what I am left to do...teach others that this stuff isn't to mess around with. Is a hit worth your life? Please get some professional help and stay clean!!

Best of luck and be sure to keep us posted on how you are doing.

bmg11- Though you only inhaled once, you should go to your doctor to be 100% sure all is well with you. 
 
I am glad to hear you regret doing it that 3rd time.  Am I to assume you will not try it again in the future?

hi
 i am a sixteen year old boy, and i saw ne of my friend that uses key board cleaner stuff. so he was using it, then i asked what it was. he told me it gets you high but he said theres no risk. so i tryed it because i never gotten high. then i ofcorsely felt dissy and i just sat down and started giggling. it felt so great, until my dad pointed the risk out. he started yelling at me for my own good because i didnt realize this can kill me. so i wanted to reply to this because my dad pulled this website up and i started reading everybodys comments, so he said i should do the same. but anyhoo, i learned: to never take drugs, pills or anything i dont know about, so this lesson taught me alot.

I am glad to hear you learned a valuable lesson and will not be using anything anymore. Good for you!! Be sure to teach this same lesson to your friends that are using ok? My fiance' died from inhaling computer duster...so you can even tell them you know someone who lost someone from inhaling it.

Sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders. Stay strong and don't give into peer pressure - it's NOT worth it. And you can always come to this site for support or show your friends so they can read about people who have lost someone to inhalants or other drugs. And always feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are all here to help!

traviskleinman- Thank you for posting, and tell your dad thanks!  I'm glad you've learned this lesson so early in life, before something bad happened.
 
Have you talked to your friend about the dangers of inhaling keyboard cleaner?

I am happy to see all of the younger people who are brave enough to be talking about their problems here. Please remember that every time you cross a line that goeas against your morals or the law you are losing a little bit of yourself.  The farther and farther you take this stuff the harder it will be to feel proud of yourself and remember what being happy was ever like.  Use the courage that you have already shown to stay away from the trap rather than trying to get out of it down the road.  I hope all of us find happiness soon.

lainie- Is that quick high really worth the dangerous effects, and possibility of losing your life? Your comment is lighthearted, but please note this is a serious issue; not a laughing matter for those who have lost loved ones.

When people have to rely on a substance to alter their mood for the better, that's a problem and they should seek help. Also, if you yourself almost died you know the high risks associated with inhalant abuse.  Why continue to do it?

 Hello everyone, My story goes like this..Im a single mom of 2 very great sons ages 15 and 6 , my oldest son always has friends over and they are a GREAT buch of kids, and I care about them all deeply..They all a good students and stay out of trouble for the most part, so I hae trusted them when they have sleep overs and sit in my sons room to hang out..I have had the talk with my son alone and have had talks with him and all his friends about the dangers of all the drugs that I know of, Meth, coke, crack , pot and they wore to me that they werent and wont do those..But last weekend I was searching for a pair of pants in my sons dresser and I opened a drawer and found 7 cans of computer "duster" all empty.I freaked out nd got my son and his 4 closest friends in the house and I had a 3 hour talk with tem about this issue..They said that they had heard about it at school and alot of kids were doing it..wow that totaly blew my mnd, I asked how they got it and they bought it at walmart..After I had the kids watch everything I could find on youtube that shows what could happen and having the kids tell me that alot of kids were doing it, I have desided to change how easy it is for kids to get ahold of this..I contacted Walmart and found out tha you dont have to be 18 to purches this, but If I get a patition signed with 200 plus names thenI can go to the regional office manager and pled with them to at least make it a 18 plus product..We have started a online group on Facebook called Ban  duster to under 18... I dont just want to help keep my "kids" from doing it, I want to deter every kid from thinking that its safe and its a cheap easy high and its not a "real" drug so theres no harm...feel free to message me if you would like to join the group or add your name to the patition...

swharton77- Thanks for your post, and for your energy being proactive in raising awareness to your local retailer about the issue. The inhalant laws that do exist vary state by state.

We noticed that when we go out to communities and talk about inhalant abuse banning a specific product is always the first response. Because there are many many common household products that can be abused, banning one only sends the message that that one is bad and others are okay to abuse.  We use education as our tool to combat this issue, because too often people are just not aware or misinformed. Completely agree with your remark to deter children (and adult) from thinking abusing a product is safe.

Not sure how you ended the conversation with management, but wanted to let you know we do give free Inhalant Abuse Prevention Kits to schools, businesses and persons in the community.  In addition to your son's school, I could give one to you to pass along to Wal Mart if they wanted more information.  The Kit can be used to educate school and store employees on the issue. The Kit comes with the following components:
  • Facilitator guide which includes background on the issues, signs, symptoms, resources, stats, etc.
  • DVD with a) Powerpoint presentation that a facilitator can use to lead the session (please note it can be edited) and b) video testimony from the Partnership for a Drug-Free America, medical professionals, and a mom who lost her son to inhalants
  • Materials: Poster, FAQ sheet, and a packet of 50 brochures for audience
Please feel free to contact me for more information or with any questions, Qbradley@ConsumerEd.org. Best of luck in your efforts.
