You had a meltdown because you were asphyxiating. As in, dying. Because gas fumes aren't safe to inhale. In the future, keep in mind that you can't legally be forced to remain working in an unsafe environment- like a room filling with gas fumes. And please go see a doctor and inform them that you had prolonged exposure to gas fumes in an enclosed area- you could have damage lurking under the surface that isn't readily apparent. If you genuinely feel like this will somehow make you fall out of sobriety, make an appointment with a counselor and attend them weekly until you don't no longer feel that's the case.

... is there an images supposed to be attached? Because there isn't one on any of the versions I just checked. Either way, that's not exactly bad info to have out there.

I completely 100% agree with what ghostfox post. If there was a gas leak and the fumes were strong enough to cause discomfort for you and other employees then work should have been stopped until the leak was cleaned up and the fumes had gone away. That is a safety hazarded and it sound like it was handled poorly I would report it anonymously to your local safety administration. And if the fumes were causing you to consider breaking your sobriety they you should talk to someone about it. In the meantime I would like to congratulate you on your sobriety because I breaking a habit can be hard and staying sober though tough times can be even harder.

OP, next time stay outside until the local fire dept's declared that it's safe to return. :-) And IMO, I don't think that being involuntarily (or unknowingly in other cases) exposed to something that makes you high esp. of a dangerous, work-related toxic nature, breaks your wonderful success of 7 yrs of sobriety. Keep it up! :-)
