How to use "Choke off" in context?

Choking is a dangerous game that can quickly lead to a person's death. The practice is often carried out by groups of teenagers and young adults for the thrill of it. During the game, one person wraps their arms around the throat of another, applying pressure until the person is suffocated. Choking episodes can last for seconds or minutes, and in some cases, people die as a result.

There is no legal punishment for those who engage in choking games, which has led to the phenomenon becoming increasingly popular. Authorities often treat the practice as a prank, which only serves to glorify and condone the act.
