[Erowid Note: Our understanding of the literature is that there is no such thing as safe recreational use of volatile solvents, aerosols and other street inhalants : their psychoactive effects are inseparable from nerve and organ damage. We have chosen to include these reports to help document the real world use of inhalants, but their inclusion is not intended to imply that they are anything but dangerous.]

Hey guys, I just noticed there wasn't many experiences on inhalants, so I figured I would throw one up here. I just tried it yesterday. Me and 3 people were hitting from a DustOff can. If you've ever tried Nitrous, it's kind of like that, but a LOT more intense, and less hallucinations. The euphoria is very strong, as well as the light-headed feeling. I tried hitting it straight from the can, and then from a balloon. The balloon is better to me, because it lets the gas warm up to room temperature. (It's kind of cold when it comes out)

On the biggest hit that I took, I held it in for like 30 seconds, and by the time I exhaled, I was already gone. I felt like I was floating off, and it was so much fun because all of my friends felt the same way. We were all just dancing around the room having a great time. I had a look of shocked amazement on my face, one of my other friends later told me. I really didn't expect duster to be all that great, but it is. FAR better than Nitrous.

It's good to do once in a while, but don't make a habit out of it.
