What Is Chroming

Chroming is another word for huffing or sniffing, and it involves inhaling toxic chemicals. Those chemicals could be everything from paint to gasoline to solvent to aerosol cans to glue. These chemicals typically affect the central nervous system by slowing down brain activity, and create a high as a result.

As Australian outlet ABC News reported in 2019, chroming is when young kids inhale “volatile substances” found in aerosol cans to get high. It is a form of volatile substance abuse involving inhaling solvents or other household chemicals to get high.

Experts warn that chroming will 'dissolve the brain like melting plastic'. It is a dangerous trend that has been around for a while .
