Warning Re Drink Spiking

Postby Lolly » Sun Oct 21, 2007 5:07 pm

As any of you who have been to the confessional probably realise, I was out partaking in a bit of alcohol on Friday night.

What I didn't say in there was what happened to Bob.

He was fine most of the night then about 20 mins before we left he got a bit "offish" and then as we walked out of the pub he collapsed and was out of it completely.

Anyhow they called an ambulance, took him to hospital and into emergency. The doctors couldn't raise him and kept asking me how much he had to drink and if he had taken any drugs (I pointed out at this stage that Bob doesn't do drugs and had drunk less than me the whole night.............. I was a bit overly merry).

Well they took blood etc and he stayed the night there.

Yesterday the hospital rang him to say that they are sure his drink was spiked - his blood alcohol level was only .1 (they told him to be in the state he was they would have expected it to be around .25). The fact that he awoke at 4.30am with an absolutely clear head and not much recollection of what happened tells us it was definitely not alcohol. He can remember the ambos rubbing his chest to try and get a response and it hurt like hell but he couldn't talk or move to stop them.

Just a waring people, Bob is really quite careful and doesn't recall leaving his drink unattended at all that night and somebody has managed to slip something in there without him noticing. We were out in a big group of friends and our table was NEVER left unattended BUT it only takes one lapse in concentration for somebody to do this to you.

It is the silly season coming up and would hate for anyone else to have this happen to them.

On a side note, Bob is just fine now and is not giving up beer :roll:

I collapsed at a night club when I was 19 after having 1/2 a drink.

The bouncers tried to throw me out because they thought I was trashed. It took ages for my boyfriend to convince them we had only been there 20 minutes and I hadn't had harldy anything to drink.

So they put us in a taxi to Royal Perth hospital but we waited for 8 hours in the emergency ward without being seen and by then I felt fine. But for most of the time I was out of it. My boyfriend at the time swore I must have been drugged.

it's a pretty scary thing hey... i guess all you can do is make sure you're with people you trust, never leave your drink unattended, and if someone is acting funny then get them to a hospital!

yep. When I'm out I never put my drink down. I drink it usually in one hit (I don't drink much alcohol so that's not an issue) and if I have to put it down, that's it, drink is over. Even if I'm with friends I do this because you never know when some random stranger might do it and also, sad as it is, things like this usually come from someone you know and trust.

It was a scary time for me on Friday I tell you all.

Looking back, there was always somebody with the drinks BUT we were all drinking the same thing (wild turkey- YUMMO) but there were people coming and going all over the place. Bob thinks he left his drink on the table with all of us when he went to the loo about 20 mins before we left.

I think even though it was Bob, we were damn lucky it wasn't one of us girls who are a hell of a lot smaller and would probably have a stronger reaction to whatever drug he was spiked with.

The publican rang me today (he is a friend of ours) to make sure he was alright and he said there have been other incidences of this happening lately as well and that the police are aware of it too so hopefully they catch the stupid idiots doing this before they seriously hurt somebody.

A friend of mine told me he got spiked at Cube, a gay nightclub in the city. He wouldn't really have noticed it, except that his much smaller friend was matching him drink for drink, and the friend was fine. Apparently he was just really high, and took some people on a very round about tour of the uni campus.

I guess it can happen to anyone.
