  repeated inhaled Inhalants (gas)


[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.]

I really don't recommend inhaling gasoline like I do. It's more risky than other inhalants I think because I'm not just inhaling a propellant, I'm actually inhaling gasoline. Not to mention my mouth tastes like ass for a day or so and it makes me feel temporarily as dumb as a box of rocks
it makes me feel temporarily as dumb as a box of rocks

I inhale it directly from the can. I just take the back cap off the can and inhale through the rubber tube several times until I feel a good buzz coming on. Sometimes I'll do it for a good 20+ minutes just chillin with a buzz and when I start to come down just taking more.

Effects are very…strange. With enough gas in my body I'll begin to see strange patterns that aren't there, I'll notice stupid fake things like the whole world is made out of the same pattern only different colors. I convinced myself the world was a magic eye poster once. Sometimes I'll pass out and hit my head or something, ouch! I can see strange multicolored flashing lights all over my field of vision. An almost euphoric feeling of being disconnected from my body. Sure, it sounds cool, I mean it is cool…but it literally blows goats tasting gas every time I breathe. And it makes it hard to see after I come down and that lasts a while.

I know when to stop inhaling the shit when the muscles in my arm go limp, but I wouldn't try that if I were you…it might just be me and then you'll die a shameful death from gas inhalation. What a way to embarrass your family and have your friends deny being your friend. Don't inhale gas, it sucks.
