I’m a teen boy who is too young to legally buy alcohol, but I’ve heard of a cheap way to get high is by inhaling typewriter correction fluid or even model airplane glue. I’m not sure how safe this might be, but since these products are considered safe enough to be sold in many places, they can’t be that bad, can they?
My friends tell me they get an epic high from these substances, so I’m still curious, even though I’m a bit concerned as to the safety aspect, too.
These friends don’t seem any different to me over the past few months since they started this sniffing. It’s not like any of them have brain damage or anything. Are the potential risks way overstated?
