loss of a cousin and a brother please read

so a few months ago i lost my cousin who was like my brother and my best friend on may 17th i got a call while i was out for dinner with some friends to come to my uncles house. it was from my uncle and the tone of his voice i will always remeber. i drove to his house as fast as i could and when i got there i got the horrible news. my cousin had hung himself in the shed. he was preparing to go to up north for the may 24 long weekend atving and camping with his friends. we did not understand how this could be he was always up beat he was part of skills canada training. he had job offers all over and was ready to start his life after he finished his last year of highschool. the police ruled it as a suicide. the following days were a blurr but in them one of my uncles close friends heard of a game kids were playing, its called the choking game and it is very common among teenage kids. basically you cut the circulation off from ur head till u pass out and then when you come back you get an adrenaline rush from it. appon inspection of the shed you could see rope marks where he had done this before many times. the coroner came back and confermed it wasnt a suicide but rather he died from playing this "game". since then my uncle and aunt have been on tv shows talking about this horrible game and how it can affect a family it is not a game and there is a lack of awareness on the parents part so i am trying to spread the word. if anyone want to get in contact with me feel free to private message me

Sorry to hear about your cousin. I have heard of kids playing this game and it's dangerous stuff. I certainly hope that others will learn from your family's experience and avoid these consequences.
