The choking game. This is not a game but more like a pass out the challenge. It is known by many different names, e.g. the flatline, pass out, gasp space monkey etc. This is one thing nobody should ever try. I mean, I know MDMA is bad, but this stuff? This is friggin mental. Have you ever seen people who are so desperate for that new type of high that will take mass effect? It takes so much effect that one can even forget himself. Well… imagine if one cannot find the new type of high in drugs but, in his own bodily functions. Ooh yes! Your own body can cause your brain to produce dopamine. You see, this choking game can cause you to pass out, but, while you’re out, you’re having a time of your life. Oh yeah. This, is real.
But, how does the choking game work? That’s the question. You see, the choking game is done when a person stands and takes fifteen deep breaths. After that, the person can now hold on to the two veins on his/ her neck and release them after ten seconds and then. VICTORY! Or is it? The choking game is one deathly game. Many children have lost their lives as a result of this, and it is very sad that a person can want to cause him or herself to be unconscious. To be honest, I have tried this time or two to skip class. Among the survivors, I’m one of the lucky few. You see, I have seen people’s lives fall apart after they played this game and trusted me, it took a lot of time for these people to rise from the ashes.
I tell you that this ‘game’ may be fun and may give you that new high but, in the real sense, it’s messing you up completely. Now, when you do this thing, what happens is that you block the flow of blood to the brain thereby denying it oxygen which is in the blood. You also block the airway, and so, air cannot get in, neither can it get out. After you have blocked all this, all you have to do is let go and boom! The blood and oxygen flow back into the brain. However, it does not flow smoothly. It rushes into the brain with all the pressure and intensity, and when it gets there, the power of the flow kills a lot of the brain cells. People, let me tell you this. It may cause serious damage that may or may not be difficult to fix.
Now, I know for a fact that the choking game is one thing a lot of kids love to play but, once it takes a toll on people, it destroys them. Forever. You see, the choking game is known to make guys lose their memory. Yeah, imagine you not being able to remember the people around you. The people you love, your friends and your family. Guess you are not able to remember the love of your life or even, what your passion is.
People, I tell you today, if you are looking for a new experience, leave the drugs and the choking game alone. Go to the gym man and play some basketball or lift a weight. Or, if you must get high just go to a pub and drink some Corona.
