However, there are many ways to protect oneself from getting spiked. There are a few simple rules/pieces of advice to follow: 1) always buy your own drink and watch it being poured, 2) don’t accept drinks from people you don’t know (no, a few saved bucks isn’t worth it), 3) never leave your drink unattended.
