Brief History

Inhalants were dated back to being used by Ancient Greeks. The trend really started to pick up when Nitrous Oxide was introduced in the early 1800’s. Ether and chloroform also became popular at that time. In the 1940s, recreational use of solvents, primarily gasoline, became popular. In the 1950’s the abuse of inhalants in the United States increased. By the 1960s, the practice of solvent sniffing had started including paint thinners, spray paint and shoe polish. Currently inhalants are a big problem amongst middle and high school students
