Hi

For the past year or so, on and off, I have been smelling Nail Polish. I have not been "huffing"  or (as far as I'm aware) receiving a high from it, rather I just enjoy the smell and I paint my nails regularly to smell it and sometimes hold the bottle near my nose so I can smell it. I don't feel any physical reactions from it but I do feel the urge to smell it quite often. If I see someone wearing Nail Polish, I will wish I could smell it. The same thing happens if I see someone with a permanent marker.

I have been in denial about this being a problem and convince myself that as I don't feel a "high" as such, then it must not be a problem. I do not inhale strongly just breath normally with the polish near my nose. I know now that I am becoming addicted because of how agitated I feel when I refuse to let myself smell it. I tell myself I will just do it one more time.. but it's never the last time. I guess I must be receiving a high without realizing.

I have lead myself to this forum many times and read some of the posts, and this time I decided I should share my own story and request that you give me any information and advice about my issue.

Thank you very much for reading,

Hope you can help and best of luck to everyone who is battling with inhalant abuse.

Lisa

Lisa - Thank you so much for posting, and I'm glad that you've led yourself to this forum for help.  Please realize that regardless of whether a person is "sniffing" or "huffing", ALL methods of inhaling fumes or chemical vapors are both dangerous and destructive. 

Some people who crave the smell of chemical substances such as nail polish may have an iron deficiency (anemia).  Please make an appointment with your family doctor to get a blood test.  If the test results are positive for anemia, your doctor may recommend iron supplements.  Please, however, do NOT take iron pills until getting the results of the blood test and being directed to take them as too much iron in the blood may result in liver (the largest internal organ) damage or kidney damage.

This site has a listing of counseling and treatment programs led by certified addiction counselors, and some centers may have state and/or county funding for those without health insurance:  http://findtreatment.samhsa.gov and can click one's state of residence on the map and continue with the search.

Alcoholics Anonymous has 12-step meetings nationwide, and one may attend an "open" meeting if doesn't have a drinking problem.  The only requirement is having a desire to get sober:  http://www.aa.org

For a Narcotics Anonymous meeting:  http://www.na.org

This site has some common mottos pertaining to those 12-step programs including "One day at a time", "First things first" and "People, places and things":  http://www.royy.com/toolsofrecovery.html

Please do make an appointment with your family doctor and find out if you do have anemia or another health issue.  Please make good, healthy choices in life, too

nooria91 - I'm so glad that you've found the information that I'd posted to be very helpful.  Hoping that you use those resources to help you in your recovery.  Field experts have referred to those who stop using drugs or alcohol (but in this instance, actual POISONS) on their own as a "dry drunk" since they haven't dealt with the issues that may have led them to want to self-medicate in the first place.  It's best to get into some sort of a program such as counseling and/or 12-step meetings.

 

You obviously have a lot going for you with wanting to attend medical school, and stopping the inhalant use can only strengthen your chances of leading a productive and prosperous life.
