So I just recently found out about the "passing out game". I had never heard of it before, but after trying it I have really liked it. I have passed out probably about 50 times in the past 12 hours. It helps take away the craving for huffing as well as the pain from a recent wrist injury. What I want to know is are there any risks? Is it better to do this than huffing? Should I stop? I don't think I would be able to though because I feel that I might already be addicted to it. It is just so fun. And you can have like full length dreams in just the matter of seconds that you are out. I really enjoy doing this. Am I safe to continue?

Both very dangerous. Both are like playing a game of Russian Roulette because you never know when serious danger or death can occur.

Here's a site that will tell you more about it and what you're actually doing to your body when you "play": http://www.stop-the-choking-game.com/en/home.html

Make sure to watch the video at the bottom.

Take care of yourself.

Wow. I was wrong about this. I thought it was safer than huffing but I guess not. But the problem now is that I don't think I will be able to stop. I have become to addicted to this already. Even after watching the video I don't think I will be able to stop. And that's what scares me. What if I can't stop. I will kill myself one day. Well I guess I have to stop starting now.

ifbattleboy- You can do this! Just like you beat inhalants you can beat this. Like you said, you will kill yourself one day if you don't stop. Think about your family, friends, people you haven't met yet in life, experiences you haven't had yet. Don't cheat yourself out of living.

Here is a link to places to find help from the GASP group: http://www.deadlygameschildrenplay.com/en/support-help-groups.asp

Please note, there's even an online choking game support group.

Keep us posted on your process, we're rooting for you!

Thanks for the link. I have decided that I am going to help my little bro quit before I quit. Unfortunatally he was the one who showed me it so he is also addicted to it. I care about him more than anything else in the world. That's why j want him to quit. I don't care if I quit, as long as he does I will be happy. Once he quits then I can focuse on me quitting.

This is an extremely dangerous activity that you are participating in.  I am the Director of GASPinfo.com and we have been gathering information on this activity for the past 5 years.  Thousands of children have died around the world by doing this "game". 

Why are so many adolescents dying?

The plan is to release pressure at just the right time before passing out.  If they pass out first, the weight of their body pulls on the rope and they can die.  There’s also the chance of seizures, stroke, or injuries from a fall.

Playing the game in any form causes the permanent death of a large number of brain cells. Within 3 minutes without oxygen to the brain, a person will suffer noticeable brain damage.  Between 4 and 5 minutes, a person will die.  Some of the those kids who died were alone for as little as 15 minutes before someone found them, and it was already too late.  Also the rush they’re getting can be addictive.  Many times the Choking Game starts off as a social activity, but adolescents end up doing it alone, which is even more dangerous – nobody’s around to help them if they pass out.

Please visit our site for more information http://www.GASPinfo.com

Keylen-

I am happy to hear that you will be receiving treatment for your addiction, and wish you all the best as you start your journey to recovery. Congratulations on your three week marker. I agree that keeping yourself active and busy is a great way to distract your brain and body from the urge to huff.

Please keep everyone here on the boards posted as to your progress and new treatment regime. It would be great if you could share your recovery experience with us too!

Also, a few posts up you'll see a comment from GASP. This is a group that specializes in raising awareness of the pass out/choking game. Please email them as they may be able to recommend some local resources for you.

Please keep us posted.

Last Monday evening I lost my son to an a can of butane. I have no idea if this was his first time or one of many. What the hell is the matter with you kids? Want to know the reality? Listen to the 911 tapes of mothers who have found their dead sons as I did. Listen to the screams and imagine it is your mom!!! And then think about how many days, nights, months and years your mom will remember you by what it felt like to hold your cold lifeless body. Please Please Please get help.

Irene57,
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your son. I also lost my son, but it was to freon. Two local boys showed my son how to huff freon. My question to the kids is why would you show someone how to do something that you know could and will KILL them. I also have no idea how many times my son had done this. There is alot of unanswered questions and the only one that can answer them is the one that can't answer them.  I also found my son dead lying beside the air conditioner at my mom's apt. He lived with my mom so he could go to college in Madison Wi.  I want to say that talking about my son has helped me alot. There is alot of things that you run into day to day that will remind you of him. Of things he had did or things he said. When that happens go ahead and say what your thinking about, what he said or did.
I know its hard because alot of people dont want to talk about him because it bothers them, so they change the subject. Tell them I want to talk about him. There will always be that piece of your heart that will be gone but keep that empty part filled with good memories of what he use to say or do.
These kids dont realize just what we go through when something like this kills them. They have the idea that it only affects them and it doesnt.  That memory of him laying on the ground that night will forever be itched in my mind. You will be in my thoughts and prayers and if you ever need to talk please feel free to email me.  email address is corgidaze@litewire.net  I would also like to go to this link and read my sons story:                    http://inhalant-info.blogspot.com/2009/11/remember-jacobs-smile.html 
I am sure if you wanted to write your son's story they would love to post it.
It will help save others.

Irene57- I’m sorry to hear about the lost of your son. Wanted to let you know we are here if you ever have questions, want to be put in contact with others who have lost loved ones (like corgidaze), or need any educational materials to pass along. For example, if there is a specific school, community center or business you think should have this information on hand, I can send you one of our Inhalant Abuse prevention Kits to pass along to them, or if you provide me with a mailing address I can mail it to them directly (without mentioning your name).

Thanks for your post. I'm sure it will force some people to wake up and take this issue more seriously. Please feel free to contact me at Qbradley@ConsumerEd.org.

irene57 - I am so sorry for the tragic loss of your son.  The pain and devastation that you feel is very understandable.  No one should have to feel that kind of ache and sadness.  My friend has a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) from huffing at age 12, now in her 30s.  People just don't know the true dangers of inhalant use.  There is a lot of misinformation out there and the young people may not realize that it's not "canned air" or such but that they are actual poisons that were never meant to go through our bloodstreams.  You and corgidaze are phenomenal and very courageous for speaking out about your sorrow to help spread the word about the dangers of huffing in order to help save another life and/or quality of life.  Hugs
