Hi guys i am 51 yo male. I have not been using poppers for several months now. I really miss masturbating with them but i because a very heavy user and i was using them 2 and 3 times a day. The orgasms and rushes i got were beyond belief.
I have been unemployed for a while now and there is nothing to do at the moment and i could really use some excitement in my life. I want to know what the long term health risks are and is there any proper reliable information out there about long term use and the risks. I know about all the general things you read online about using them. There are a lot of opinions out there but i cant seem to find facts. Im 51 so not young and carefree lol.
1 1/2 years ago i developed breathing issues and my nasal dried up, i lost some taste and smell too. I had not been using them again for several months but i dont know if that's related to poppers.

I have no clue where to buy good poppers in the USA. Joe Miller of PWD died in 2010 and it's been zilch since. Apparently, there are some Euro dealers willing to ship to USA. Isopentyl nitrite, which some of them offer, is preferred due to less toxic side effects.
Even with my home brew amyl, I often use Ventolin inhaler to relax the airways, which seem to constrict AFTER popper use.
I personally would NOT use IPN, IBN or BN. That leaves normal amyl(pentyl) and isopentyl nitrite, which are not made and sold in the USA. Lockerroom in BC may make it, but they won't say what's in their poppers.

Rico1999 - I don't think it's as safe as it's used to. I've heard that these companies are labelling bottles that don't match what is in the bottle. I've given up amyl - everyone on here seems to think its fine - but all the doctors seem to disagree. I trust doctors

Two statements which are totally false.
> I've heard that
I heard that Elvis Presley is living on the Moon and running a KFC outlet. CAS numbers (and regulations thereof) mean that is impossible. Chinese products maybe take liberties with the contents of their products, after-all they do copy labels as they wish
>I trust doctors
No doctors, or anyone serious, except for online gossips / armchair poppers experts, have said any such thing. Certainly not about amyl, which is still used in the medical environment anyway. There has been speculation about ISO-PROPYL only.

I'm a decade younger than you, but I know how you feel.
I think poppers are particularly seductive/dangerous as we get older and our natural libido starts to fade. We can hit the bottle hard & feel as horny as we remember we did in our 20s.
But the health consequences soon come! Over-doing poppers will rob you of your vitality. You just won't be as fit as you would be if you didn't. And with Covid around, it's not a good time to have any habits that weaken your immune system & respiratory system.
What I'd recommend is you get more into healthy things like yoga, weightlifting, even identifying and listening to a lot of the music that raises your energy. You can build a ritual around doing these things before using porn. Sure, it will never be quite as intense as your memories of gooning in the popperhole, but your whole life will be in better balance and you'll be happier.
Which reminds me of something else: For me, my years of pathological poppers over-use were years of deep anxiety and depression. Once I try to overcome the anxiety and depression, my urge to use poppers fades. It becomes just a crazy memory of the days when gooning to video file meant more to me than all the possibilities of life itself!

Yeah, agree with Billy. I wish I've never discovered poppers. Recovery takes forever...

No doubt about it Billy. Poppers after the age of 50 can lead to a downward spiral of health problems. Loss of eyesight, breathing difficulties and sleep disorders.

Do you know exactly what goes into that little brown bottle that you sniff?
Do you think that every little brown bottle has amyl in it.
Amyl in it's purest form is not so bad - the problem is you never EVER get pure Amyl.
Do you think these companies if they could save them someselves some money they would give you good quality shit?

Just came back from a neurologist apoointment who has now confirmed that I have caused myself brain damage by inhaling poppers over the last several years. Thank you to all those other people who encouraged me and said that there is nothing wrong with sniffing amyl. Looks like your wrong and as a result I'm in constant torture.
Thanks alot for not warning about the dangers of poppers. I guess you just be one of the lucky ones. I'm sure this post will be deleted soon. Can't let it interfere with our fanatsies.

The sad reality is bro - is that a lot of the older gay guys almost view this drug with gay significance in their culture. In my experiences most doctors say that there is no harm in doing it - however their "straight" counterparts say there is. but like many - i have on ocassions thrown mine down the toilet or throwing it out - I suspect many other people feel this way however the reality is is that those brown bottles rarely ever contain pure amyl nitrite.
Hopefully you get better mate
