About Inhalant Addiction
Addiction to inhalants is one of the least common of behavioral problems. But those who abuse these substances suffer life-changing damage. You can also develop a physical and psychological dependence on the substance, making it hard to walk away from huffing. Knowing these risks and consequences yet not making changes in your drug use provides a clear sign of inhalant addiction.
Making things even more difficult, you find plenty of potential highs in aisles of grocery markets, drug stores, discount retailers and hardware stores. Many of these items are sold to people of any age, while some controls on paint products keep young people from buying those for illicit purposes. Still, with some of these items found in most American home garages, getting high is easier than you think.
