[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.]
Air Duster. Never again.

This is how it all started: Late tonight, just maybe two hours ago, after a great sexual encounter with my girlfriend and a nice hot shower, I walk to my computer, log on Facebook and check my 'like' page. My gf, Haley, had went back to the washroom to brush her teeths. SWEET. Just enough to take the last hit of this can without her knowing. I inhale one nice hit and cycle through another pages picture, also known as 'memes' as the 'wahs wahs' kick in.

So far, I'm getting that sweet euphoric wavey feeling I always get and go into my dream-like state. All of a sudden as I begin to chuckle at a funny picture portraying Patrick Star with some funny dialogue pasted on the photo, (a meme), Then it really kicked in. My chest tightened up, My whole life literally flashed before my eyes. Every rotten moment, every good laugh, every holiday, hell, even every shit I've ever taken. The pictures was rapidly changing back and forth from one to another on the screen. I heard the sound of a old TV shutting off, making that slight 4000hz frequency it always does, but it lasted longer and got more in depth as it went on. Over that I swear I heard two godly voices talking, 'Are we gonna do this?', one said, the other responded, 'Yes, we are. There's no going back now' I was scared literally half to death. Then came the tunnel vision. The computer screen looked as if it was a million miles away. I felt my spirit slowly start to fade away. In my panic during the NDE, I quickly remembered my anxiolytic exercises my mama had taught for my severe panic disorder. I started trying my hardest to contol my breathing and lowering my heart rate and suddenly everything faded back. I saw the face of death and came back.

I proceeded at this point to yell out my girlfriend's name for her to come in the room. For some reason I called her her sister's name. lol. She came in to me puking and passing out face first into my own vomit. I then got up and began to have anxiety attack and seize. She was really scared but I knew it was going to be over soon and I was going to live.

My chest still hurts.
This all took place in under one minute.

I now do not take my life for granted and value everything and everybody in it. I will never ever touch another can of duster, even if my keyboard is dusty as fuuuu.
