    choked / choking

    Are both of these forms correct? I think I have seen both of them.
    1. I was choking with tears.
    2. I was choked with tears.

    Re: choked / choking

    Both are correct -- they are just different tenses.

    Re: choked / choking

    I'm confused.
    I was choking with tears is past continuous and I was choked with tears is simple past passive.
    And do you mean the passive form mean maybe someone / something else made me feel choking with tears?
