Who is likely to play the choking game?

Michele Borba
Psychology
Typically the Choking Game involves kids 9-16 year olds and predominantly males although younger and older adolescents along with females may also be involved.

Please don't assume that your kid "would never do such a thing." We're seeing that often well-adjusted, high-achieving students just looking to have a sensational experience (and assuming that this game is safer than alcohol or drugs) are engaging. Some children actually think this approach to "getting high" is safer than alcohol or drugs.
