    Some people may think,

    "oh 16 is to young for an addiction.". Well...it's odd, but I had an huffing problem with Nail Polish and Nail polish remover. I used to crave a sniff so bad, I would itch, my mouth would water, and I would go insane. I never told my parents and took it in my own hands. I stood...
