Poppers dependency and addiction
Jessica (we’ve changed her name to preserve her anonymity) has been under the spell of poppers since her first experience with a vial of Jungle Juice. Since she doesn’t smoke cannabis, never takes drugs and doesn’t drink, she began to abuse the party substance in the evening to the point where side effects began to appear.

For some time now, she has felt as if she has lost control because her use is daily. She would like to tell her friends and family, but is afraid of being judged or misunderstood. She feels lost and has contacted the PoppersPlanet team for some advice in this painful situation.
