          The Deadly Teen Choking Game

          December 21, 2005

          Classic Dr. Phil

          Imagine if your child used suffocating or choking in order to get high. It’s a dangerous trend that’s going across America, with deadly repercussions.

          A Teen in Trouble

          Fourteen-year-old Alyssa choked right in front of her mother, Robin, who fears the trend could have a tragic outcome if she doesn’t stop. 

          Is the thrill of the game worth risking her life?


            A Mom in Mourning

          Dr. Phil talks to the mother of a 13-year-old boy who made national headlines when he died playing the choking game. His mother still struggles with guilt and wonders how to move past the pain.  

          “My life has changed drastically,” she says.



          Time to Unplug?

          Thirteen-year-old Logan’s habit looks innocent on the surface, but his mom fears that it’s affecting him in the worst way. 


          “My son is wasting his life away,” she says.
