Hi, I know that u have posted this sometime ago but I'm just now having the courage to look up my addiction.this addiction started with me about 10 years ago when I was pregnant. My face was so oily from my pregnancy that the only way I could feel clean and refreshed was to clean my face with an alcohol soaked facial cotton swab. And ever since then I love the way it makes me feel clean and fresh. I was reading previous blogs from different people and I'm sorry to say that I didn't put two and two together. It was around that time that my obgyn doctor told me that I was anemic from my pregnancy and every since then I have been off and on. I too crave the smell, not to get high but I am seriously in love with the aroma. I have tried all flavors from green to orange from 50% to 90% and narrowed it down to my favorite from that. My husband thinks I'm strange for loving the smell so I keep hidden. When I crave it the most is when I have been drinking or when I am stuffed from eating those are the only times where I have to have it. When I am out I keep hand sanitized in my purse just incase I have a craving. I am embarrassed having this addiction let alone blogging about it but I was relievers to find that I am not the only one. Still I need to break from it. Any confidential methods to breaking from this addiction other than to stop buying it ( because that doesn't work ) I am open to hearing it?

I really would like an online support group though. Is that available? anywhere?

This is good that you are at least know the alcohol is bad for you and it will also the cause of number of health issue. You had already suffered from this. Alcohol is one of the addictive drug which will directly affects on the brain and this is very dangerous and may also cause of death. Counseling is the best way to know about your addiction and get an effective medication to cure your addiction.

Hi this is my first time doing any research on my addiction, until a few weeks ago I didn't even think it was a problem. However when my husband told me that I look stupid walking around with an alcohol pad under my nose I started to think. I have done this for a long time and never thought I had a problem, I just do it not even thinking about it. I get the craving and I just open that little pad up and sniff like crazy before I know it I have opened 10 or 20 pads and sniffed them until they are dry.

I know if I saw someone doing this I would think OMG are they crazy, but I don't even realize I am doing it until I have gotten my fix. I am glad I am not alone. Now if  anyone has any addvice on how to stop please let me know.

I have to get up and get a few cotton balls, unroll them and soak them with 91% rubbing alcohol then sniff till they're dry.

When you sniff the fumes, they enter the nose, mouth, and back of the throat and may enter the lungs drying out the mucus membranes.  Over time and continued use, some destruction of the membranes may occur in all these areas, including the lungs.

What do think about a mother giving her 3 year old isopropyl alcohol swabs to suck on.Dont worrie she has done been reported.But nothing has came of it yet.If it turns out that its ok to get your child hooked on rubbing alcohol im just going to start a company and sell them and add flavor to them.And lable it as internal use also and safe for all ages to ingest.     Kidding of course..............[mad]

Wow, I am so glad that I stumbled onto this post.

I HONESTLY thought I was the only one who does this - I LOVE to sniff rubbing alchol right out of the bottle.

Even typing that makes me want to slap myself and tell me myself that I am stupid and what I am doing is stupid but...I can't help it.

I am 31, I started about a few months, although I have always loved the smell of it. I use it to remove my makeup since I use a lot of bronser and break out a lot.

At first it wasn't a problem, then I just felt the NEED to do it all the time, I couldn't wait to get off from work to go home and go into my bathroom and sniff.

I do love the smell and the euphoric feeling it gives me.

To be totally honest, I am also addicted to percocets. Take one long tug on a bottle of rubbing alchol to me is like equal to popping a percocet, and I have been addicted to that for about a year - I had 2 really bad root canals done and was just hooked on the pills afterwards.

Now I have to try to hide it from my sister, she knows I use it to wipe off my makeup, but sometimes I bring it down to the living room and hide it behind a pillow or something so I can sniff in other parts of the house and she asks "Why is this down here?" and I lie of course.

I want to know the reasoning behind it so bad, I have never huffed/sniffed anything before.

I have experimented with drugs when I was a teenager but now I just stick to drinking alchol/percocet/sniffing rubbing alchol

Someone help please!!!

I am so glad that I found this site. I got here by Googling Alcohol inhaling. I have been sniffing rubbing alcohol and hand sanitizer for over a year now. I will be 40 this year. I just love the smell of it. I use it to clean my glasses so I can sniff it longer, clean my face so that I can sniff the cotton pads while doing it. I thought I was alone in this. I am glad to see that I am not. I know this isn't one of the addictions that is talked about.

I know it isn't healthy for our bodies. And it isn't something that I actively sought out to do. One day, the smell of hand sanitizer really really appealed to me and it took off from there. There is something about the fresh clean scent for me that attracts me to it.

The scent of some products are really addictive. I couldn't avoid myself from sniffing.
