Drinks can be spiked in two seconds
Inspired by Cinders soapbox on this spot. This is to Показать Ты why though.
I hail from Ireland- the unofficial drinking capital of the world. Therefore, most of my socialising centres around the pub, and the club.
Its not that I am a massive drinker, Ты know, the kind that tries to suck up alcohol from the carpet following a spill, but I do drink. And I do go out.Which is why I know first hand the dangers of leaving a drink unattended.
It doesn't matter what Ты are drinking, be it whiskey или water,NEVER EVER LEAVE IT UNATTENDED
Its really common to spike a drink with a Mickey Finn in Ireland, especially in clubs, where its easy to lose track of a drink. I don't know about other countries.
Why is it dangerous? Ты don't remember anything after Ты take it.
I'll give Ты an example.
A friend I went to school with left his drink unattended for a minute. When he came back, he finished his drink. Within two hours, his Друзья had to bring him home.
Thirty минуты after finishing his drink, he began to act strangely. He became so abusive the bouncers threw him out of the club, where he started to abuse and threaten some acquaintances who were waiting to go in. He became physically aggressive, and it took four Друзья to get him into a cab.
When they brought him home, he started crying and screaming at the 'monsters' that he could see.
He woke up the Далее morning, and could not remember what had happened to him.
So, some tips:
1) If Ты leave a drink alone, DON'T drink it. Ты don't know what could be in it.
2) Don't assume Друзья will watch your drink. Make sure someone is watching it.
3) ANY drink can be spiked. Don't assume your безопасно, сейф because you're drinking water.
4) If Ты think someones drink has been spiked, tell them!
5) If Ты leave for a smoke, finish your drink first. или order a fresh one when Ты come back in.
6) Друзья may think it funny to spike your drink. Be cautious.
