Though I never got the date rape drug in college, (called "dog and horse tranquilizers” in liquid and pill form that has no smell or taste and put mostly into punch bowls and drinks by people that you think are so nice), later in life, I have watched my drinks, and actually pretended to not watch my drinks, and watched guys slip these drugs in friends' and my drinks. I won"t go further, but it can happen to anyone! At any time of the day! Yes, with perfect people that you think would never ever do that! They or their friends do this! Always watch the guy's hands - are they making the drink in front of you or do they go elsewhere inside, to make your drink and bring you back a beer. Follow them when they go to get you a beer if not next to you and follow them if they go away from you to make a drink. I cannot tell you how many times I have seen men try to sneak stuff in girls'/women's drinks and they get away with it. Please be careful, don"t trust men just because they are your guy's friend's friend. By the way, if you see, feel or know that they put something in your drink, do not address it to them. Just pretend to drink it and go to the bathroom and pour it out. In one hour, with you not drinking the drink, you will see other friends getting totally wasted and gone. You will be glad you faked drinking the drink. Then write a story about it the next day to yourself so you can help others.

My advice is to prepare yourself for tough times when dealing with date rape drugs. As a male, it's even more difficult. Often the police will assume it's your fault for getting drugged in the first place, or will call you delusional and refuse to document anything. The hospital may lock you in the psychiatric ward if a test turns up negative, or even not test you at all. I've been through all of this, five years on and off being stalked, drugged, raped, etc., and getting help can be very hard.

My best friend of about 4 years had something that she needed to talk to me about; about not knowing what to do for her kid! What she shared with me is more what I would like to find out here! That is, are the kids and people today also aware that when people share their cigarettes have put some kind of rape drug in them too! Many do not even know this when asking someone for a cigarettes!
