peterpan0205 - Please be aware that even though the pine cleaner doesn't have a warning on the back label, you're still inhaling POISON.  A reason that the label doesn't have a warning is perhaps due to it not being a typical inhalant.  The label does probably say to keep the room well-ventilated though.

This government site has more information about what may be on the warning label for certain pine (or any) cleansers including "in case of inhalation, remove to fresh air":  http://householdproducts.nlm.nih.gov/index.htm and can type "pine cleaner" into search or such. 

Perhaps you can have an addiction to inhalant use, and you're just trying to rationalize that it's safe when it is NOT   Field experts have referred to huffing as "Chemical Russian roulette" and for good reason.  Please call a counseling or treatment facility and get outside professional help before it's too late and your family is either planning your funeral or visiting you in a Brain Injury hospital. 

To search for counseling and treatment programs, and some 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.

girlsgames - Thank you for posting.  Inhalants are both psychologically (mentally) and physically addictive.  If you're having a craving for cleaner or other chemicals, that can be indicator of an iron deficiency (anemia).  Please, however, do NOT start taking iron supplements until after getting a blood test and the doctor recommending them as too much iron in the blood can result in liver (the largest internal organ) or kidney damage.

  thank you realdruguser for being so blunt....brutal honesty is what it takes, and then it really doesnt matter since inhaling is not illegal...nor is the possesion of inhalents.  realdruguser do you agree with me that addiction is very bad, but DENIAL is even worse, being brutally honest is the only way and they still may not care enough at all, but WE can try to continue to use this brutal honesty and rebuke ALL DENIAL about addictions.  well said my friend, well said!

I have recently became addicted to anything that smells fresh and cold. Sometimes I stick my head in the freezer to take a deep breath. I chew on ice constrantly while I am doing this because my mouth waters at the thought of inhaling.  I hate the winter, and now I can't think of anything better than leaving to work first thing in the morning and inhaling a huge gasp of cold air, then getting in the car and pointing the airvent directly at my nose. Pine cleaner? Forget about it! I mix mine with bleach and spray it in my sinks and on the counters constantly because the smell drives me nuts, and then drives me to crunch on ice. This is weird, and has become a very embarrassing passtime, that I try hiding, but my husband has caught me a few times and writes it off as me just being quirky or just taking a deep breath (ok, my husband is an idiot.)  I really wish I didn't stumble across this dangerous little habit, and I would do anything to stop. I am ok with the ice crunching, but the inhaling the cold and the chemicals, it is getting scary.

I too absolutely love the smell of pine cleaner. I sniff it several times a day. But I also love the smell of new tires and I could sit in the tire store all day and be happy. AND I love the smell of brown shoe polish. I keep a can handy and sniff throughout the day. Markers I also like. All of these things make my mouth water and satisfy some kind of craving. It is strange but I love it and am not going to stop. I am glad i am not the only one with these wierd cravings.

sniffer2 - Thank you for posting.  I am very concerned for your health, both physically and emotionally.  With regard to physical health, that includes one's neurological health which involves the brain, spinal cord and nerves.  My friend has a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) from huffing at the age of 12, now in her 30s.  The chemical vapors that you're inhaling can literally eat through the brain tissue. 

 

I'm not sure if you have an IRON deficiency, but PLEASE go to the doctor and get a blood test.  Please, however, do *not* start taking iron pills until after the blood test and the doctor recommending them as too much iron in the blood can result in liver or kidney damage.

I did it I finally have rid myself of this horrible ritual. I no longer have pine cleaner in my house. I have inhaled pine cleaner since I was 16 I am now 31 and finally am free of the dumb habit. I am so proud I dumped a entire bottle down my toilet and felt so good. I never knew why I loved the smell so much? I went to a addiction counselor and told him all about it! That was the best.thing I have ecerr done I have not.inhaled that horrible cleaner at all in 5 months. I must say I am proud so proud. I am on tje road to recovery!

This sunday night, at 10:30 on TLC's show, 'My Strange Addiction' , they will feature a woman who smells pine cleaner obsessively. I have it on pretty good authority that this is damaging behavior, and when you watch the show, a doctor shows her the damage she has been doing to herself. I thought you all might find this interesting.

Wow, all of these replies to this one topic. It's good to know we're not alone, but bad to know what we're so uncontrollably addicted to. I've been addicted to this for 3 almost 4 years now. It started when I had to clean the bathroom, I shut the door and window and started cleaning. As I worked I noticed an unusually strong but pleasant smell. The Pine-sol had spilled all over the floor, I picked up the bottle to see if that was what I was smelling and it was. Ever since then I come home and just sit in the bathroom smelling it. I usually do it for as long as possible without being suspisicious now that my family and friends know. Although at first I would do it for about 20 minutes to an hour sometimes. Over time I've added other smells into my addiction category. These include: nailpolish remover, bleach, fabuloso, and other types of pine sol. I thought I was crazy at first and I tried getting help, but no one really takes me seriously. I am worried that this will get really serious, but I've heard of people doing it for 10-15 years so Im not too worried. Just wanted to share my story guys...any advice is accepted. Thankyou

I am not sure if I am addicted to Pine Sol or not; I sniff the Original Pine from the bottle for no more than about 5 seconds 1-2 times per day & sometimes pour/soak a small area of carpet with it as an air freshener -but that is all; I do not have the need to sniff it all the time & I don't get high from it either. It also does not burn or hurt in any way; i have not noticed any difference in my health. I am baffled as to how chewing ice and/or pretzels comes into play with this, but, whatever... this weird thing has not affected my everyday life at all, so can someone please tell me if this is considered being addicted  - i just LOVE the smell
