5 Tips for Protecting Your Cocktail From Date Rape Drugs

We have all heard about a girl who had one drink at a party or club and woke up the next morning a victim of sexual assault.  Mrs. Stun Gun has 5 tips to help you keep your cocktail safe when you're out for an evening of fun.

1.       Never leave your drink unattended.  If have to go to the bathroom, take your drink with you.  If you're going to dance, take your drink with you.  We can't stress it enough.  Unfortunately, you can't rely on your friends to watch your drink.   They may become distracted  by a cute guy or they may get a text message.  All it takes is a few seconds to have your drink spiked.

 

2.       If your drink tastes or looks weird get rid of it.  Many of the date rape drugs cause your drink to taste or look differently after it's been tainted.  GHB will give your drink a salty taste and Roofies will turn a clear drink green.[1]  Ecstasy will make carbonated drinks foam.  beer will even foam so much, it will overflow the bottle.

 

3.       Never take a drink from a stranger.  No matter how good looking he is, don't take the drink.  If you're at the club, have the bartender make it in front of you.  This way you know the drink is safe.  If you're at a party, only take drinks from guys that are unopened bottles are cans.   

 

4.       Don't drink from a shared container.  You never know what has been slipped into the beverage.  Your TASER® or stun gun is useless if your unconscious from a spike cocktail.  Besides, think of the germs you'll be sharing.

 

5.       Never drink from an open punch bowl.  Spiking the punch doesn't just happen at prom.  Many girls have woken up naked after drinking from a fraternity's punch bowl.  Don't be the next girl.

By following these 5 easy tips, the chances of your drink becoming tainted from a date rape drug is greatly reduced.  The vast majority of men would never do something like spike a drink in order to rape a girl but there are some who do.  Like all aspects of personal safety, being constantly aware of your surroundings will create a greater level of personal protection.  For more articles and tips on personal safety visit the blog at Mrs. Stun Gun.
