I have reason to believe my 14 year old son could be inhaling/huffing.  I recently found about 17 lighters in his backpack and a beer bottle.  Should I be concerned about that amount of lighters providing butane fluid for huffing? He couldn't really give me a good reason why he had them all.  He's seems unusually tired after staying out all night at his friend's house every weekend.  Of course, they are teens and are probably staying up all night anyhow, whether this includes huffing or not...Should I concern myself w/this?

MaryJane- Great job in being vigilante!  Having numerous lighters is definitely a red flag that you need to speak with him because something could be going on.
 
I encourage you to speak with him again and talk about harmful effects of abusing.  Here is a link from our blog when i did a quick search for butane: http://inhalant-info.blogspot.com/search?q=butane
 
I hope this helps initially.
 
PS- If you don't think his school is doing an adequate job addressing or talking about inhalant abuse please let me know. We have Inhalant Abuse Prevention Kits we send out free and school nurses and counselors usually like to receive the information

Thank you so much for getting back to me, Q.  I spoke with him last night about the amount of lighters and the possibility of huffing butane.  He sort of laughed at me and told me his friends don't do that kind of stuff and neither does he. He runs cross country and maintains above average grades.   I told him I needed the reason he had so many lighters in his backpack then.  He replied that they use them to throw on the ground and they explode.  I think that is probably true but I'm still worried.  Is there any test beyond visually checking him or smelling for the chemical odor?   I know there are OTC drug tests now but wasn't sure about this one.  I haven't received any information from his school about "huffing" but I know the neighboring town's Middle School is having a meeting on it tonight.  Even though he's a good kid, he would have reasons to be stressed and want the escape.  His father and I both started drinking very young.  (addictive personality is in his jeans)  I'd be willing to receive the kit to forward to his highschool nurse.

Im 14 years of age but have 3 years of experiences and addictions. Listen if you will.  Talk to him. Or wait awhile and keep searching his bookbag or room.
I used to steal my mom's lighters. I wud hide things in the back/bottom of my draws, pill cases, and my bookbag's smallest pocket. Watch for his friends too. He could be hanging with a wrong crowd too.


i have friends who throws lights on concret floors and laugh at the sudden flash of explosion too. but we dont collect 14 lights to simply explode for 0.1 of a second... it isnt THAT amussing....

Great advice Keylen! It's always good to get a different/fresh perspective on issues.

your username is "MaryJane" and I'm sure it's not a coincidence.  Obviously you're more concerned about yourself or possibly your addictions then you are to your child and the attention he may be crying out for.  I suggest you all get help because if that is the case you are the type of parents that disguist me.  You wonder where your children would ever get the idea to drink, use drugs or do something so random as inhalants because after all at 14 your child shoudl be more focused on school work then hanging out with friends all night and having 17 freakin lighters.  what is wrong with you? lock him the hell up! ground him and put some discipline on him!!! SHOW HIM ATTENTION OR THAT YOU CARE! A lot of addicts feel something when wrong in their childhood and often cases include how parents neglegted or mistreated them.  If i brought judgment and that's not the case in your family then i apologize but my career is to notice the little things to see the broader picture and your name caught my eye as not a cute name or coinicidence but a family full of addicts and child thats caught in the middle and might become a statistic of children whose parents use also use.  counsel and disipine is important.  its ur house ur rules...kids need to respect you and your rules....
