    Its definatly not a good idea to do this shit. When I was about 12 I started doing gas and used to do it loads with my mates (so stupid of me). I used to do it till I black out and one time I thought I had blacked out but Id been sitting dead still for about ten minutes staring into nothiness...not good!!! Im not sure why I stopped doing it, I cant remeber but most likely I moved onto what I thought was bigger and better things!
    Solvents r sooo dangerous, u can die instantly and its just not a good idea. A bloke I knew when I was younger died afer doing glue...please stop. If u cant do it yourself find someone who can help u like a drugs clinic in your area.

    pls dont do any kind of solvent abuse.
    My cousin dies a year ago, after he sniffed lighter refill, it destroyed our family, and was a complete shock to us pls dont take that ris.

    , a quick buzz is not worth recking your hole life for.

    you have to concider other ppl, like ure family and friends, it will wreck there lives too.

    maybe try and get ure mind of sniffing, and do something else instead, also dont have anything near you that u cld sniff to avoid temptation.

    My mate died a week ago monday from solvents. I'ts his funeral today.
    They found him with a light gas refil in his lap in his car beside the road. The thing is his girlfriend is expecting his first kid, aboy, in the next two months.
    As much as I'll miss him, I'll always be pissed of with him.

    Me and him used to cane on loads of drugs but one of the things i've never done is solvents. They always looked dirty and upedictable. They must be unpredictable beacause I'd seen him do loads before. I'ts not as though there's precautions you can take as with other drugs i.e. drinking a sensible amount of water when doing pills.

    Most of the time they don't kill you, somtimes they do.
    Anybody doing this has got to be a wave short of an ocean.

    just shows how lethal and unpredictable solvents can be.

    Never put off to tomorrow what you can avoid altogether.

    I only did solvents a few times when I was in my early teens, just the usual lighter fluid and I wouldn't recommend it, made me have these really nasty red sores around the opening of my nose and everytime I sniffed I'd get that lighter fluid taste in the back of my throat.

    One of the main problems with sniffing gases like that is you can get gas pockets in your lungs which really fuck you up something proper... best to be avoided mate...

    Solvents are a fucking stupid thing to do and they fucked me up good.

    Please...whatever you do, don't get involved with solvents. Just go smoke dope or something, but seriously, solvents are NOT COOL AND CAN KILL YOU INSTANTLY!
