A YORK mum has warned people to keep an eye on their drinks after she believes hers was spiked on a night out.

Mum-of-three Rachel Griffiths, from Acomb, said she had been on a night out with her brother, sister and her boyfriend, when her drink was spiked.

The 29-year-old said that while she was alert to what was happening around her, she was quickly aware something had been put in her drink.

She said: “I felt a bit strange and I knew it wasn’t the alcohol.

“The morning after I felt terrible, it was awful.

“I have always left my drink on the side and left it alone.

“I’m absolutely not going to do that again. My friend usually keeps an eye on my drink but she wasn’t there that night.”

She urged others not to make the same mistake: “You have to be careful and keep an eye on your drink.”

Miss Griffiths said she had been aware of a man who had kept asking her to go outside the club she was in but that she could not be sure when and where her drink was spiked.

She said while she considered going to the doctors the day after the incident she did not.

Last month, a report from front line volunteers suggested drink spiking with extra shots of alcohol or drugs appeared to be on the rise in York.

The report to the council warned that apparent drink spiking had meant a number of younger women were being abandoned in the street when people thought they were drunk.

The report was based on the perceptions of Street Angels, a Church-led initiative made up of volunteers who patrol the city streets into the early hours on Friday and Saturday nights caring for people in vulnerable situations.

However, North Yorkshire Police emphasised the information in the report was anecdotal and said “potential for exposure to harm faced by those who enjoy York’s night time economy remains one of the lowest for any city in the country”.


How to avoid drink spiking

If your drink has been spiked it’s unlikely that you will be able see, smell or taste any difference.

The following steps as suggested by the NHS may help prevent someone from spiking your drink:

• Never leave your drink unattended

• Don’t accept a drink from someone you don’t know

• Keep an eye on your friends’ drinks

• Stay away from situations that you don’t feel comfortable with

• Let someone know where you are and what time you expect to be home, especially if you’re going on a date with a stranger

• Don’t give out too much information to someone you’ve just met, such as your address

• It’s important to remember that if you’ve already been drinking, it may make you less aware of any danger.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to the Press for taking this issue seriously. As a student (not in York) I had my drink spiked with MDMA - my terrified friend took me to hospital where the sympathetic but realistic nurse told me that although I kept insisting 'I don't take drugs' (never have willingly, anyway...) that's what everyone says when they go to hospital through drinking too much or taking a bad cocktail of drugs.

I wasn't angry with the nurse because I know she's right - out of embarrassment I guess a lot of people would prefer to believe they've been spiked than admit to taking too much of something of something or drinking so much that they lose their bodily functions, but it doesn't mean that every drink-spiking case is made up, and considering that at the university I used to attend they have just released some pretty frightening rape statistics it is definitely important that people (men and women) are vigilant against it happening, even somewhere like York.

spot on! What a load of cr*p! I ended up in hospital when i was a student at uni in Newcastle. I was at a house night at a club called Shindig and picked up the wrong drink (i was drinking vodka and coke and there were a few drinks on the ledge above the dancefloor that looked the same) so it was my fault! I took a mouthful and it tasted weird (a bit salty). I had already swallowed it by the time I realised or I would have spat it out. Tens mins later I was sweating like mad, my vision went and I collapsed on the floor and everything went very weird! There was no doubting whether or not the drink was spiked! I ended up in the back of an ambulance but 1 hour later it had worn off and i was fine (I went back to the club and the bouncers let me back in for free). It was probably GHB but I don't know for definite and I didn't let them do a blood test as I had receovered by then. This story in the press sounds like a load of cr*p to me!!

My wife was spiked a few years ago when she nipped to the pub for a drink with my friend's wife. My friend's wife had to carry her back to their house unconcious after she collapsed in the pub. this was a country pub, in a small village - there were 3 women and 1 man in there at the time.
She had less than half a glass of wine after a meal. She nearly choked on her own vomit after I finally got her home.
I know who did it.
I know he had done it before and will/has done it since. He is known for saying "I can have any woman I want". Now he's known for being a drink spiking rapist. Anyone mentions his name near me and they get the complete story.

Well, if she had gone to the toilet or to dance then she would have to leave the drink.
I just can't imagine why some one would spike her drink when she was in the company of two men as they wouldn't be able to get her alone.The whole thing seems a bit suspect but if it highlights the danger of drink spiking it is worth it!

From the age of 16 it was drummed into me to never leave my drink unattended, never rely on someone else to watch it for me and if a stranger offers to buy me a drink, go with them to the bar and never accept it if I didn't see it poured.

Several years ago a friend accused me of being paranoid because out of habit I always took my drink to the loo with me ...... that's when I pointed out to her that she'd been spiked twice, I'd never been spiked! Now I'm in my 30's, I can honestly say I've never suspected my drink has been spiked and I don't understand how people are still allowing themselves to be in such a vulnerable position!

There was a piece of research carried out about 5 years ago in South Wales that looked at blood results of people who attended A&E claiming to have had their drink spiked.

The actual number that had was something under 5%, the rest had all just drunk so much that they couldn't remember what they'd done, fallen over etc etc. and had suitably high alcohol blood levels.

Not to say that it doesn't happen, but it is much rarer than many, including the press, would have you believe.

Well thank you for that you arrogant, holier than thou pig. Clearly, not everyone is blessed with your superior Tory/Lib Dum intelligence and there are some in this world, like you, that are oxygen thieves. I cannot understand why, with your superior intellect, you even deign to read these stories and comments.

I feel blessed that I don't know you in real life, nor the others that have posted outrageous remarks on this story. As she left her drink unattended, she deserves to have it spiked , or is lying about it - that's what you are all saying. Listen to yourselves. You should hand your heads in shame. It's like saying that if I'm an old lady collecting my pension from the Post Office, I deserve to be robbed. If I go out in a short skirt drinking, I deserve to be sexually assaulted, and heaven forbid that if I go back to a house of someone I just met, I deserve to be raped. That is the logical conclusion to the comments you and others on here have posted.

Oh, and for the record, drink spiking can be very, very dangerous and it is not just men spiking the drinks of women, it is men spiking the drinks of men, and to be fair to the argument, potentially women also doing the spiking. Don't comment until you have seen the effects for yourself. A good male friend of mine became like a wild animal, after his drink was spiked in York 8 years ago. Not only did he have to be pyhsically restrained, not only by ambulance staff and the police, he then had to suffer the indignity of a rectal examination to make sure he hadn't been raped because he effectively "lost" 12 hours. As far as he was aware, he had not left his drink unattended so there was a suspicion that the bar staff had been involved.

All this woman has done is gone public to remind people of the dangers of drink spiking and she has been subjected to a barrage of abuse from you and others. Go and troll somewhere else, or boil your head to get some sense into it. You are a disgrace for your comments and heaven help any female members of your family.

Bringing peoples attention to the dangers of drink spiking is definitely a good thing, however, beginning your post by referring to someone as an " arrogant, holier than thou pig", having " Tory/Lib Dum intelligence" and being "oxygen thieves" greatly diminishes the validity of your following comments....

Having said that, this story is so full of holes it's validity does need to be questioned. Are we supposed to believe a 29 year old woman wanting to raise the issue would leave her own drink unattended. She was supposedly out with her boyfriend, her brother and her sister. Could they not have watched it?

If the guy was asking her to go outside, why did they not know, or why did she not make them aware of the situation? If the guy was a nuisance, why did she not inform the staff?

Why were the police not informed? There may have been little or nothing they could do without someone witnessing the alleged spiking, but they would have been aware of it if they received another report of a similar incident.

Why did she not seek any medical attention? Surely, a mother of three children would have her children and her ability to look after them as her first priority.

Because of her own actions, there is absolutely no evidence to support or refute her story and you can't expect people to just accept her word.

Obviously, I don't know the truth here and an important issue has been brought to the publics attention, but I question the validity of this story. If I think this way, it is possible others will, too and there is a danger of it just being dismissed as attention seeking nonsense.

As a member of the loony leftie brigade, I feel I should now intervene and comment

Now, being a silly member of the loony leftie brigade, one man's leaving a drink a pub unattended, is another 'man's' leaving his daughter in there
