It is that time again, the games have begun! Now we cheer on our country in the Olympics. When we think of ‘games’ we often think of the games that are played in the Olympics, right? That is what a game is.
The term known as the ‘Choking Game’ makes me cringe every time I hear it. In games, trophies, medals, ribbons, titles or plaques are won, right? What do you ‘win’ from playing the choking game? Well, headaches, itchy-bloodshot eyes, tired, nausea, marks and bruises on your neck, mood swings, disoriented, and for some, death. This in turn leads families like my own heartbroken. This ‘game’ is not a game. It is very easy for things to go wrong, and it should be taken seriously. My family and I’s lives have been dramatically changed forever because of this ‘game’. If you or someone you may know is doing this, please stop. There is no reason for any other family to have to go through the heartbreak of losing a loved one.
You may not be an olympian athlete, but living a full life is much more rewarding than any medal or title could ever be. Do your part and help spread awareness to stop the choking game!
Have a Blessed Day!
