So for awhile now I've had this big fear that my drink will get spiked, and I'll freak out/black out etc from whatever unknown substance. This came on after a friend of mine once had his drink spiked and ended up in hospital for a month.

The problem I have is, these days my social phobia is fed, not just from a general fear of being around people (which i also do suffer from), but also from the fear that I will get my drink spiked with something (since most are such a tiny amount of colourless odourless liquid) if I go out to a big party/club, the thought of ever going through something like that frightens the life out of me. I find it's got to the point where if i think someones into illicit drugs or something, I will avoid them at all costs, leading me to avoid alot of people, and places, and even one family member.

Does this sound like it's just my social phobia manifesting itself in strange ways, or like a completly seperate phobia? Feedback would be appreciated.

I think it is manifested a little bit. Was this attack on your friend a random thing?
The first thing I thought of, other than not going to the club, is to keep your drink in your hands or close by you at all times. :stu

No he was targeted by one of his so called "friends" as some kind of sick joke. I wasnt there though, nor do I know any of those "friends" of his. This happened a few years back btw.

If you ever find out who did that to your friend do us all a favour and shoot them in the face and throw their body off a cliff. There is no tolerence for that behaviour in my book.

I agree, it's never ok to invade on the rights of others. It was actually a girl who did it to him he said, apprently she liked him, he didnt like her back, you know, odd world.
