Inhalants are breathable chemicals. Inhalants can be found in the home under the sink or in medicine cabinets.
Some inhalants are solvents, aerosols, some anesthetics, model air-plane glue, nail polish remover, hair spray, lighter and cleaning fluids, and gasoline.
Sniffing, flue sniffing, huffing, poppers, snappers, whippets, locker room, rush, jolt, and bold are some of the slang words used for inhalants.
Inhalants can slow down the body's functions, decrease
the heart rate, cause sneezing, coughing, nose bleeds, feeling and looking
tired, bad breath, and loss of appetite. If used too much they can
cause damage to the brain. They can even cause heart failure
or even death.
