Inhalants are products that give off chemical vapours. Many inhalants are volatile solvents—gasoline, paint thinner, glue—used to perform everyday tasks at home, school or work. They are not intended for inhalation. When purposely inhaled, the vapours affect how we think and feel, slowing down our heart rate, breathing, thoughts and actions.
