Inhalant Abuse Can Be the First Step to Long-Term Addiction
In some ways, inhalant abuse brings about effects that are similar to the effects of alcohol: dizziness, confusion, poor coordination, nausea, lightheadedness, delusions and others. In the long term, effects can be a bit more serious, including:
- Withdrawal symptoms
- Extreme weight loss
- Chronic disorientation
- Lack of physical coordination
Because the immediate effects of inhalants only last a few minutes, many users repeat their use over and over again within a few hours. This can quickly lead to overdose, which can result in coma, brain damage and/or death.
