Yup - if you can say you are choking - you aint choking

I posted above- I have had the Heimlich done on me. Scary as hell- you CANNOT move any air - which means even a grunt is damn near impossible. Once it has happened to you - it is easy to spot a real choking victim after that - it is the person with a terrified look - eyes screaming for help - color draining and NOT answering you when you ask - are you choking.

In reality - once I realized I was choking - doing the old hand sign was the last thing on my mind - cause by the time you realize it is more serious than just "going down the wrong pipe" - you are already starting to feel the effects of the lack of O2. I just got attention anyway I could - you have to get people to notice.
