Solvents cost only a few pounds,

Effects of solvents      

*Users say it like being drunk with a dizziness, dreaminess, and giggles effect.      

*It can be very difficult to think straight    

   *The hit is quite short so users tend to keep repeating the dose to keep the feeling going.  

     *Depending on what type of solvents are inhaled some users can hallucinate, this can last up to about 45minutes.

*It can give a sense of having a hangover afterwards giving them a very bad headache and making them very sleepy.   

    *Depending on what type of solvent and how they inhale it can also give the users a red Rosharon their mouths.

The risk       *User risk having nausea (vomiting) and blackouts      

*At the worst risk fatal heart problems which have been known to kill the user, even with the very first sniff/inhale of the solvent.

a very dangerous (low) level.
