    You can use : غَصَّ with food, شَرَقَ with drink, اختنق with smoke or gas. (intransitive)
    And: خَنَقَ - to make somebody stop breathing by squeezing their throat. (transitive)

    اختنق
    i was choking on my food as i ate too fast
    انا اختنقت بطعامي لاني اكلت بسرعة

    " he choked /( strangled) him until he died"
    هو خنفه حتى مات
