Inhaling Alcohol: A Potentially Deadly, New Trend Among Teens
DAYTON -- Chances are you have not heard of smoking alcohol, but your kid probably has. It is an alarming trend among our teens, and it's gaining traction in the social media world.
"First alcoholic choice, we're going to smoke some bud," the person boasts in a YouTube video that's had more than 2.7 millions hits. That is probably because it's entitled, "Dude Gets Drunk Without Drinking 1 Drop of Alcohol."
"Poke a hole through the cork and start pumping," said the kid on the clip as he demonstrates for the world how he smokes the alcohol. It's like binge drinking in an instant.
This newer trend -- some of it driven by saving your body some calories -- has doctors worried. Dr. Thomas Herchline is the Medical Director for Dayton Montgomery County Public Health. They haven't seen this trend take hold here as of yet.
"It's scary because the amount of alcohol a person could inhale or absorb can be literally life-threatening," said Dr. Herchline.
When you drink too much your body protests, and you vomit. It's your body's natural protective mechanism. But if you're inhaling it., there's no way to tell how much you've absorbed into your bloodstream.
"It's very hard to drink enough to have what we call alcohol poisoning," said Herchline and added that if you inhale it, you are well on your way.
