Infact, ten percent of twelve to seven-teen year olds reported using inhalants at one time. Teens use several methods to take inhalants. Most commonly, a rag soaked with the substance is applied to the mouth. From there the user starts to inhale. Also, many people inhale the gases from a plastic bag. Some people just inhale it from the bottle. There are even ihalants that enable the user to spray it directly into the mouth. There are many ways to take inhalants, and there are also many reasons why kids, and adults alike, use inhalants, but I know that if you really try hard you can stay away from using these drugs.
Most inhalants are common household items such as hair spray, whiteout, and spray paint. Inhalants refers to a substance that is sniffed or huffed. Because of the convenience of inhalants one in three children throw their lives away using this group of drugs. Like marijuana users, children dont know the effects of inhalants. What they dont know is that use of inhalants can cause hepatitis, liver failure, and muscle weakness. Short term use of inhalants can cause heart palpitations, breathing difficulty, dizziness, and a major headache. Also, long term use of inhalants is associated with irreversible brain damage. If that one child knew that using inhalants one time could kill you, he probably wouldnt be on them. There are many different reasons why teens and children use drugs. I think it is mostly because they dont know how to say "no"
