Individuals who abuse inhalants often do so out of boredom, curiosity, peer pressure, and to escape problems. Inhalants are cheap, readily accessible, and almost anyone can easily purchase them.

Commonly used inhalants include solvents (e.g. paint thinners and glues), gases (e.g. hair sprays and deodorants) and nitrites (e.g. room odorisers). These household items have chemical vapours that when inhaled, makes the person high.
