I found out the hard way, 20 years ago, about the choking game. My son, Mike, played the game, fell backwards and hit his and died from his injuries three days later. And so I know that this game has been around for longer than ten years; and like you I was totally unaware of the game or its deadly consequences.
Since Mike's death I have been campaigning to alert and educate others -- parents, children, professionals -- about the so-called game. And since I began this work I have met so many other parents, in person and on line, who also wish they had known about the game before their child succombed to it.
I'm glad you have spoken out. Perhaps if more people would do that we might make some progress. Our motto is simple: Stop the Choking Game! Anne Phillips
