To dream that you are choking on an object indicates that you are reluctant to accept someone's opinion or suggestions. You may also find it difficult to communicate your own feelings or emotions. If you are choking on food, this may be a symbol of your feelings of inadequacy or hidden emotions.
To dream that someone is choking you implies that you are refusing to express your feelings, especially when it comes to admitting that you are scared, angry, or have other strong feelings about someone. Someone, something, or perhaps even you, are forcing these expressions to be held back.
To dream that you are choking someone implies that you are angry or frustrated. You want to stop someone from exposing a secret or potentially damaging truth.
These dreams can cause anxiety and will often result in the dreamer rousing him/herself from sleep.
