I tried hufffing computer duster once and it turned out to me an amazing high. I was also drinking so it juts kept adding to my buzz. Me and my friend ended up huffing a large can of duster. After that night i have only tried it a few times. I have sudden urges to huff but try and get overthem. It was just a good high that one couldnt imagine, but with all the side effects i would rather haev my life.

I will post this as many times as I need to. My fiance Jarod died June 20 this year. He was inhaling computer duster. This stuff DOES KILL and it will kill you. There are no words to describe everything I have felt inside for the past almost 6 months. No one should die this way. If this isn't enough reason to get help to those of you out there using this stuff, then I don't know what else to say. Don't EVER think it can't or won't happen to you. I'm sure Jarod never thought he would die from inhaling that crap. But he did, and it sucks SO MUCH. Please don't put your family and friends through this, get help before it's too late. I hope each and every one of you do before it's too late.

this past week my 22 year old son relapsed for the 4th time this year after 5 months clean. He walked into 10 Walgreen's stores, stold over 34 cans of duster and huffed in his car for 3 days. He ended up in 2 hospitals, jail and then detox. Its a miracle he is alive, and if he doesn't stop, he will surely die. I am terrified. He detoxed for 6 days and is still feeling the effects, very depressed, irritable, and extremely bad headaches, stomach aches, etc. I am afraid that he has some serious brain damage. He has no health insurance and  I am searching for doctors who will discount their services in the clearwater fl area so I can get him medically and mentally looked at. This has been the most horrendous year if my life watching him trying to beat this..he cant stop, and if he doesn't, he will die..this started as an innocent boys playing around over 2 years ago not knowing the dangers and reality of this drug. Why cant the makers of this stuff put it behind the shelves like they did sudafed so when someone wants it they have to sign for it. Distressed ,despair and terror are my primary feelings right now..please let me know if you know any docs that discount

Nicnak- yes, it sounds like his behavior is due to inhalant use.  Have you talked to him about the problem yet?

kkerrno4- Glad to hear you value your life more than a quick high.  Feel free to check out other posts on the message board and share your story.  As having tried inhalants in the past and being wise enough to know the act is no good for you, you may inspire other to put them down too.

 jmoney- Thankfully you were not hurt in the crash, and did not injure anyone else!  You definitely need to seek medical attention regarding your seizures.

You also need to be honest and let your mom know the real reason her car was crashed.  Hopefully, this rude awakening served its purpose in letting you know the dangers of abusing inhalants are very real.

schipket- I am not aware of any discount doctors, the only thing I can give you is a resource to find treatment facilities in your area (they may work with or know of some discounts). Here is a link to the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment: http://dasis3.samhsa.gov. After clicking on the link a map will pop up, click on FL then see which treatment facilities are in your area. 
 
There are over 1,000 products which can be abused.  When used properly, as instructed on product label, these products pose no harm.  If you highlight 1 product and chose to lock that up behind a counter, then there is a risk of shifting attention to yet another product, and so on.  The best way to fight inhalant abuse is education.  Spreading awareness about the issue, what to look for, dangers of, etc. 
 
Very sorry to hear about what you are going through, but glad your son is still alive and fighting his problem. Please keep us posted on your son's progress.

I just tried Duster for the first time tonight. Once I got home I started to feel sick in my stomach. I don't think anything is actually wrong with me health wise but I think I just started to feel stupid for even doing it; therefore I wanted to look up stuff on it online. That's how I found this site. I'm honestly so happy I did because after reading just a few posts I know that I'm not doing it anymore. I'm actually pretty speechless ha. it's just crazy to think something like that can be so fatal, yet again it is meant to remove dust not be huffed.

BeeMarie123-  Very glad to hear you will not be abusing computer duster anymore.  I also commend you on being wise enough to do some research into inhalant abuse and educating your self on the issue.

BeeMarie123 - I truly hope you will never do duster again. My fiance' died back in June from duster. It's not something you want your friends and family to have to live with. We are all so devastated and in so much pain and hurt right now and forever will be. It's very awesome of you to get on here and research inhalants. Be sure to spread the word and always let others know how truly dangerous this really is. Stay strong!!

My friend is using computer duster. She says there's nothing like the high you get when you're on it. I tried it with her one night, but I don't think I did it right and am really freaked. What is the correct way so I know not to just swallow poison?

ARE YOU CRAZY???? Seriously you want us to tell you how to inhale this stuff? Encase you didn't know this is an abuse/prevention support board to help people STOP abusing inhalants.

I think the above post should just be deleted IMO.

TakeMeAway- There is no "right" way to abuse a product!  Doing it just once can kill you (Sudden Sniffing Death Syndrome). Most dusters contain one of two chemicals: tetrafluoroethane (HFC-134a) or difluoroethane (HFC -152a). Every time you and your friend inhale duster all of these chemicals are going directly into your body.
 
Different inhalants yield different effects, yet generally speaking, because inhaled chemicals are absorbed through the lungs into the bloodstream and distributed to the brain and other organs, the effects of inhaling can be severe. Within minutes, the user experiences feelings of intoxication and may become dizzy, have headaches, abdominal pain, limb spasms, lack of coordination, loss of control, hallucinations, and impaired judgment.

 

Long-term inhalant users generally suffer from muscle weakness, inattentiveness, lack of coordination, irritability, depression liver or kidney damage and central nervous system (including brain) damage. The dangers are real, the side effects are severe and the high is not worth risking your life.

 

Take a moment to look around this board at real stories of lost loved ones and people who's lives will never be the same again, because they chose to abuse. Ask yourself, in duster worth your livelihood?

I lost my fiance', THE LOVE OF MY LIFE in June to computer duster. My life is a NIGHTMARE now and I have to live with so much pain and suffering every single day because of what he chose to do. PLEASE get some help - for you and your friend. No one knew Jarod was using this stuff to get high and every waking moment I am blown away by what a STUPID thing he did that took his life!!!! NO ONE SHOULD DIE THIS WAY!! Your next hit could be your LAST. I truly hope you will stop and tell ALL of your friends what a stupid and dumb thing inhalants are - no matter what the product may be. We can't support you if you are asking us how to "properly inhale" crap. This is VERY disappointing to me. I truly hope you re-think your decisions and start promoting awareness on inhalant abuse and help others realize how dangerous this stuff truly is. I'll tell you one thing...the pain I feel from losing Jarod is so horrible I would rather not be alive anymore to not have to feel this. Do you want your loved ones to have to live with that if something were to happen to you?? I would hope not. No one thinks anything bad will ever happen to them - and I'm sure Jarod thought the same thing. It's a very bad and WRONG thing to think. I pray you will stop and help others stop too.
 
Best of luck. I'm here to support you if you are willing to support your life.
 
Kim-
