Q103: Is solvent abuse/glue sniffing addictive?

There is no evidence to say that solvent abuse itself is physically addictive. However, long term users can develop a tolerance to the substances needing more to achieve the desired effect. This can lead to a dependency on the substance and a psychological addiction.

Please see the websites in the Related Information for more guidance on solvent abuse and drug addiction.
