Keep It Under Control
Nitrous Oxide

  repeated inhaled Nitrous Oxide (gas)


I used whippets recreationally for a couple of years. Not much, maybe a twenty-four pack a month, it was fun. Then one day I was depressed and bought twenty twenty packs and inhaled for two days straight. I had to go to the emergency room at the end of the second day because of a massive headache, I didn't tell them of my NO2 use. They found that my B12 had dropped so low that I was at risk of dying and spent the next seven days in the hospital. I am still not fully recovered from that experience and am still not sure why I did it, I have problems with short term memory and coordination. I don't ever plan on using NO2 again.
