    In addition, long-term inhalant use also has a long list of physiological effects not occurring in the central nervous system due to the toxic chemicals circulating consistently throughout the body
    (Anthony et al., 1994):
    Cardiovascular [[#|Failure]]Weakening
    Coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath
    Liver Toxicity
    Renal Failure[[#|Failure]]
    Bone marrow suppression leading to anemia and leukemia
    Some inhalants have specific consequences due to its unique effects. For example nitrites cause smooth muscle to relax and an create an intensification of positive emotion (Ringwalt & Schlenger, 2005). The relaxation of the smooth muscles, for example makes anal sex easier therefore, making nitrites popular with gay males. Ridenour (2005), has found that nitrites also suppress one's immune functioning. In combination with the likelihood of risky behaviour in the gay community, nitrites have been affiliated with an increase of HIV infection.

    has shown to be in studies to be addictive due to
    Inhalant chemicals effect many different neurotransmitter pathways similarly to alcohol, including dopamine (Bowen, 2009). It is the effect on dopamine in the limbic system that has been said to reinforce the rewarding effects of inhalant use (MacIver, 2009)
