Please note bleaktrotter's post has been deleted as we do not tolerate disrespectful words or tones.

mothball- In life there will always be naysayers and someone trying to block your progress. Please continue to speak up about your use, as it may inspire others to speak about their own problems.  Thanks for posting and I hope you get help soon.

mothball2 - How wonderful that you haven't used any type of inhalant for months!  What a great idea to change your screen name as perhaps a new chapter in your life.  Thank you so much for keeping us posted and letting us know how you're doing.  Please do consider talking with a counselor (and/or attending a 12-step group) as to deal with the issues that may have led you to want to self-medicate in the first place as that may help prevent relapse.  There are counseling and treatment facilities that may have state and/or county funding for those without health insurance.  Please continue to be well and make good, health choices

Hello again everyone. For the most part im still mothball free. I've had urges to sniff then when I had the chance to I thought of how far I have come and put it down. Im still mothball free and feel great. I hope everyone is having great luck like I am and really want to thank whoever made this website or who supports it. Just a reminder to everyone who is in the struggle don't give up you can do it. Until next time everyone god bless

mothball2 - How awesome and fantastic that you're still not huffing!  I'm sure that it's a daily struggle and how wonderful that remembering how far you've come has motivated you to not use.  What can help support your sobriety is working a program such as a 12-step and/or entering counseling.  Wishing you continued wellness and recovery!

There are people who, unfortunately, do sniff moth balls.  You may be aware but moth balls have pesticides in them which are VERY toxic (poisonous).  It is imperative that you talk with a licensed substance abuse/addiction professional to help deal with the issues that may have led you to self-medicate in the first place.

To search for counseling (outpatient) and treatment programs for those with a substance abuse problem(s), and some may have financial (money) assistance for counseling of those without health insurance:  http://findtreatment.samhsa.gov/ and can click one's state of residence on the map and continue with the search.

Keylen,
They are white balls that they use to keep moths from eating your clothes. They are very strong smelling.  NOT at all meant for sniffing. Hope you are doing well with your conseling. Havent heard from you in awhile  take care and keep up the good work....

I thought I posted this before...I just LOVE the smell of them!  I keep FAR away from my cat, but I just cannot stop.  No high, just lovin the smell until my sinuses start to burn and then I stop.  What are the ramifications of just craving the odor?

leigh - Thank you for posting.  The chemicals in mothballs are pesticides, so they are definitely harmful.  If you have a craving for non-food items, please ask your doctor for a blood test to check for iron deficiency (anemia).  Please, however, do NOT start taking iron pills 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.

Hello all,

Its been so long since I posted I'm surprised I remembered my log in. I still love the smell of Mothballs and its crazy to see how many other people do too. I watched the " My strange addiction" show and there was a lady on there that did exactly what I did and smell Mothballs. It's such a hard habit to kick
