  • PROTECTING YOURSELF
    Don't accept drinks from other people.
    Open containers yourself.
    Keep your drink with you at all times, even when you go to the bathroom.
    Don't share drinks.
    Don't drink from punch bowls or other common, open containers. They may already have drugs in them.
    If someone offers to get you a drink from a bar or at a party, go with the person to order your drink. Watch the drink being poured and carry it yourself.
    Don't drink anything that tastes or smells strange. Sometimes, GHB tastes salty.
    Have a nondrinking friend with you to make sure nothing happens.
    If you realize you left your drink unattended, pour it out.
    If you feel drunk and haven't drunk any alcohol — or, if you feel like the effects of drinking alcohol are stronger than usual — get help right away.
