Steroids and your personal feelings towards them Watch

    So I've been thinking of going on them for a long time but know that some of my mates don't like them/some do. Obviously my parents wouldn't want me taking them but what are your thoughts on them?

    Do you feel they are 'cheating'?
    Would you be bothered if other people took them?

    Steroids don't work if you're not lifting heavy anyway.

    Don't see the point.

    Where is the sense of achievement if you know it's just down to taking a pill.

    And the small penis thing is obviously a setback.

    Thats just a myth (its shrunken testicles and im not taking the one that does that anyway if I do cycle). but yes, sides are a problem.

    Dangerous and illegal? It would definitely put me off someone as a potential partner, that's my personal feeling. They're not good for you, don't do it OP...

    Not illegal no. But yes they may be dangerous and I'm only scared of the sides.

    There's a reason why mens testosterone levels decrease as you get older. Putting it back into your system can't be good for you.

    The side effects of steroids are just ridiculous. The list goes on and on.
    And for what? Too look a bit more hunky than is naturally obtainable?

    I think it is a very expensive waste of money...

    It's illegal to sell them though... so it's dodgy getting involved. You'll grow breasts... If that doesn't put you off then go for it...

    I've got nothing against the use of performance enhancing drugs. It's your body.
    I assume that as you've been thinking of taking them for a while, you have been researching steroid use, availability and correct procedure. I'm sure a single 6 week course won't mess you up in any way. As long as you're aware of the risks of continued use and 'abuse' then I say go for it.

    If I fancied a guy, was getting with him..then later found out he takes steroids which would explain a bigger physique he may have, it'd probably turn me off. It'd just seem like cheating to me. I guess it's the same as girls and boob jobs, it'd bother some and others would just enjoy the perks?

    I don't have any objection to people doing it... if they are using them intelligently and know what they are doing and why and it is a considered decision then I can respect that even if I think it wouldn't be worth it for me personally. If they are totally uninformed and think it is some wonder drug that will do all sorts by magic... then I would kinda look down on that.
