I'm pretty sure these kinds of products are used for giving a "jolt", similar to energy drinks which often contain the vitamins B2, B6 and B12 iirc (it's been a while). Also if you don't smoke the absolute risk is still small if you take these, but the lesson is more that you shouldn't take supplements randomly, willy nilly.

well fuck, I take sublingual b12 supplements because I most likely don't get enough from my mostly-vegan diet. so now what the hell am i s'posed to do? Like I guess it's convenient that the study didn't show it as a risk for afab folks(for some reason??) but like. gh.
it'd be cool if they'd just make the supplements have your actual recommended daily value in em rather than like 1,000% your daily value. that'd probs help.
I guess it's probably good in a way that I forget to take it more than like once or twice a week

B complex supplements tend to have much more reasonable doses. Mine has 2mg b6 (100% daily recommended dose) and 15mcg b12 (250%). Moreover, since you more likely have a deficit you're probably at lower risk than you seem to be expressing worry for.

yeah I'm probs gonna just keep taking it whenever I remember, and then when I run out of my stockpile I'll try to see if there's another kind that doesn't go quite as hard over the daily recommended amount
Also yeah the whole afab thing is weird and makes me question the validity of the study in the first place
