A new internet craze known as the good boys game because it doesn't involve drink or drunks is making the rounds. What on earth is it?

Is he choking himself? Is a friend choking him?

How does anything like this become a craze in the first place.

Poor little boy and poor mum. Having to walk in to find that

It sounds similar to auto erotic practices.
It's no game, didn't a politician die like that? Steven Milligan.

I really don't get the younger generation and these crazes sometimes

I mean who comes up with these things?!

Ice bucket challenge
Smiley lighters
Choking games
Chugging drinks

Some they try and claim oh it's for charity but in reality it's just a way of getting likes on their fb

The one that really fucks me off is the 72 hour disappearing one angry

What's that one?!

Is that why I keep getting

"This is Lucy*. She is 15 and has not been seen since xxxx"

Lucy is not real name

I have so many of them suddenly appearing on my FB. Is that it??

I heard about the paracetamol challenge at school!

Yes need they run away and stay with mates and have to make it to 72 hours before theyre found. Its a real problem in Ireland. Every weekend there'll be 2/3 new missing teens found safe and well by monday morning.

A boy died in a similar manner at my son's school seven years ago. Initially they thought it was suicide. Then they decided it was a bizarre game gone wrong. He was only 11 or 12. So sad.

Not heard of the 72 our challenge before.

It sounds rather like something I tried to stand up against when I was about 13. A group of us went to a camp with groups from several other schools. The other girls in our dorm told us about this great game, demonstrated and tried to get us to have a go - it was essentially getting someone to put pressure on your neck till you blacked out, as far as I recall. No way was I having anything to do with it, but didn't have the clout to stop others.

Very sad tale.
