Wow....I seriously thought that I was the only person on the planet that had a SERIOUS addiction to nail polish...I think that I've been sniffing nail polish now for almost two years, almost everyday straight.....sometimes I'll do it 5-6 times a day, depending on how bad my fits, as I call them, kick in and I always inhale it for a period of 6-10 minutes sometimes....I'm 30 years old, I'm unemployed and I'm married with 5 kids in the house....I, out of everyone I know, need more help than anyone...I want to let this go...I have read and heard of the dangers of inhaling harmful things but I didn't listen...at all. There are a few days, however, that I actually won't inhale nail polish....those are the days that I forget to do it...seriously.....I will literally be so busy trying to do other stuff to keep my mind off of it and it usually works...I try this every single day of my life....sometimes I feel as though I can conquer and other days, I'm back in the bathroom or wherever I can go just to sniff for a few minutes....it's gotten so bad that now my kids know and they're concerned about my health...I cry everytime I think about it and I want help...I'm tired of reading about stuff because in my opinion, that only makes it worse...I need somebody here to talk to, to coach me through this...my husband thinks it's a phase but I constantly tell him that I NEED help, BADLY!!!! I feel as though I can't go on with this anymore...my whole car (well, just the sterring wheel) is covered with nail polish because of me trying to sniff and drive....yes, it's THAT bad....please feel free to write back with words of encouragement because that's what I need right now and I'll try to do the same for anyone else that may be going through this...I'm so glad to know that I'm not alone....I paused for a second or two....I just threw away every single bottle of nail polish that I had...it was a total of 58 bottles of nail polish, including my little girls' nail polish because I've sniffed that once before....I've even put nail polish remover inside of the empty or dried-out ones to get a more stronger smell....I feel SO much better that I did that...I know the girls would be proud of their mother and I'm proud of myself right now too but it's still a long journey and I think I'm ready...hope you guys get better with this because I know how hard it is...there's no telling what I've damaged over the last two years...I surely don't want to die from this and I quite frankly refuse to....so should you....thanks for listening...

I'm not a licensed physician, but you may be developing (or have already) a tolerance for the chemicals in the product.  That is supposed to mean that the person needs more of the chemical(s) to get the same effect.  It's crucial for you to seek outside professional help for the apparent inhalant addiction.  

Please also ask your family doctor to send you for some blood work to test for iron deficiency anemia (or other mineral deficiency).  Those with a mineral deficiency may crave non-food items.  Please, however, do NOT start taking iron pills until after getting the blood test *and* the dr recommending them.  If too much iron is in the blood, liver (the largest internal organ) or kidney damage may result.

Please take a look at this website to search for counseling and treatment programs for those with mental health and/or substance abuse issues:  http://findtreatment.samhsa.gov/ and can type one's zip code or state of residence into search.

The only hope I have is taking my iron supplements. I know that once my iron is up the PICA will go away. Has anyone had any serious medical problems because of this.

I like the acetone smell, but I am not addicted to it.

I have the same issue persay but it's completely irrelevant to include that you live in a nice house and that you're attractive. I think you just want people to think more highly of you. Anyways I think it's fine to like the smell but you're totally overdoing it. 4 bottles a night? Don't let it go up your nose, that sh*t goes directly to your brain.
