ingesting antifreeze (90%eg) on a nightly basis.

User Profile
I have been really depressed and have been ingesting antifreeze (90%eg) on a nightly basis. I drink maybe 6ml a night. I need honest answers and yes I plan on getting help. My question is that if I keep this up am I at risk of death? I don't notice any bad side effects besides a little cramping in my kidney area. I've called poison control a few of these times and they said I'd need at least a mouth full to kill me, but I didn't mention I was drinking it every night. Am I in trouble here?

OMG, stop now! Drinking antifreeze causes a crystal formation in the organs and is a vary miserable death.

You do realize the stuff you are drinking is the same stuff that they use for emboming people after they die??? There is a reason why they do this. It hardens your organs than the crystalize over a period of time.
