there's a lot more to taking roids than just popping a pill or shooting up and heading to the gym. There are obvious side effects and clear benefits. There is also a huge hormonal change that occurs in your body that you need to monitor and adjust for before, during and after your cycle. then there is the cycle itself, which has its own sets of rules.
End message is that if you are wanting to do this, you should come to the conclusion yourself and not cause a friend pushes you. Personally, I fell into the pressure in the past and would never do that again. To each his own, but Iwould advise to steer clear and depend on hard work and good nutrition to get you where you need to be.
