Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. Addiction to alkyl nitrates or poppers to get a high and an aphrodisiac effect is growing and is a very concerning activity among youth. I believe that the medication has a lot of side effects and can eventually lead to sudden cardiac death, stroke and a number of other bodily reactions that need medical attention. I would like you to stop the usage of this drug which is laced with weed and tobacco as a combination of all these drugs can be lethal. I also believe that you will need to consult a qualified psychiatrist specializing in substance use disorders to get the right treatment. I wish you the very best in recovery.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
