Hi
I have a question.....
I've been using inhalants for about 6 years now and I've been trying to stop but when i do i get shakes, chills, headaches, sweats, bad stomach, i can't sleep but i get sooo tired, bad cravings, depression, anxiety..... the list goes on... the physical part lasts like 6 days but mental part seems to never go away! and the cravings are soooooo strong! what is going on! is this withdrawal? and also when i did some research and it says for inhalants they require 30-40 days of  detox... does that mean i will feel crappy for 30-40 days?! can someone give me more info on the withdrawal and stuff please!

airman-  Similar to ridding the body of certain drugs, when a chronic inhalant abuser stops withdrawal does take place (and that's what it sounds like you are experiencing).  Other withdrawal symptoms include, but not limited to: hallucinations, nausea, excessive sweating, hand tremors, muscle cramps, headaches and delirium.

Because the rate of relapse is high in inhalant abusers, follow up treatment is very important. Please contact a medical professional and speak with them about recommendations for treatment facilities, therapy, support groups in your area.

You may also want to contact to contact the McCann Treatment Center.  The Center has a Tundra Swan Inhalant Treatment Program (the only known facility in the U.S. specifically designated to treating inhalant abusers).  They will be able to answer any other specific questions you have about treatment.  The main number is (907) 543-6800.

I hope this helps initially.
