A spoonful of ether syrup at bedtime
Dr Henry Bigelow, author of Insensibility during surgical operations produced by inhalation (1846), reports that from his own experience the effects of inhaling sub-anaesthetic doses of pure ether were almost as exhilarating as nitrous oxide “or of the Egyptian haschish” [hashish]. Dr Bigelow sought to reassure his readers that ether was benign. He recalls how there was “scarcely a school or community in our country where the boys and girls have not inhaled ether, to produce gayety.”
Rhonda became addicted to ether as a child, when a caretaker provided ether spirits combined with sugar and cinnamon. That period was the only time she remembered feeling happy.
