I was not sure about including the choking, but someone commented it on Fb and it was not to long ago in my own town a young man passed that way. Everyone was shocked. The article went on to say that many people don't disclose the information and that is is all too common!!! TALK about it, it is NOT 'o.k.' and NOT something to play with.
None os this is about suicide, it is about wanting to experience a 'Euphoria', high, carelessness. I have learned in all of this, children want to do it -naturally- just like adults, why do you think there are so many alcoholics? Children first experience getting high by spinning, or holding their breath... then most kids are introduced by a sibling or peer. They do get creative! Out of necessity. OUT of prohibition. Look how the worlds poorest children get high, usually inhaling a harmful chemical out of a bag.
The rest is history. Some of these highs are damaging and can make children very ill and kill them. This new one, Sham-boiling - I had to look it up to believe it was real. Tell me that is NOT harmful - chemical inhaling.. ANYone can do it.
EDUCATE your kids.
So now I am wondering and yet again - the one that no one has ever died from is the one that remains illegal? WF is wrong with us?
Seriously ask yourself, After you research!!:
If your 12/14 year old, came to you and said they wanted to experience getting HIGH, they would do it with or without you- they had several friend who have offered to get them high several ways .. what would you do?
You better do something. Drug abuse is on the rise amongst kids 11 and up... but guess what -it's not cannabis it is pharmaceuticals. < prove me wrong. Do not believe the fear mongering. Educate your kids and then have faith in them, and you.
Our children are our gift. xox <><
