    Assuming you are over 21 and male.


    I think I would give it a try, but I wouldnt be on it long term, the long-term health risk is still unknown.

    ouch as I take the needle out of my ass.....


    If roids were legal it doesn't change what can happen to you. Just like with anything in life, there are positives and negatives.

    Do you really think not being legal is the reason many don't use it? People wont let a law stop them from getting what they want. If it was legal we would have a lot of more high school boys with bitch titts.

    If its easy to get more will use it, but it wont stop others that want it from getting it.

    i ask this question in the background of viewing "bigger, stronger, faster"

    Chris bell and Mark Bell are so HOT, but I disgress...

    I have always agreed that harm of steroids use in adult male is over-rated, I understand banning it is more like an example for the kids, But I seriously think this is blown out of proportion.


    Not that I have been a user or anything, but there is always two sides of a story.

    Prohormones (or designer steroids) are legal and readily available. There is very very very little difference between the stronger prohormones and steroids.

    What isn't quite so freely available is nolvadex which stops hormone imbalance after a steroid cycle, although like viagra, you can buy it on the internet black market.

    Because of the side effects; NO, nevvah! For medical reasons only. Wanna know more about the side effects? Google 'steroids+side effects'.

    No way - I'm already the size I should be, plus I'm strong and fast enough - no artificial enhancements needed.

    In all honesty, I do not know. Its not like I could not get whatever I want now. I could. I think most all of us could. So, we all face the choice anyway. I have not used yet; but, I cannot say that I will never use in my life. So . . . I guess its a definite maybe.

    have used and will again, as soon as I can afford to, legal or not...side effects fears are exaggerated...roids can be safe to use if used correctly and wisely...

    No. A bud of mine used them (I only figured it out later.) . He stopped cold turkey, which can really screw with your hormone levels and emotions. It sent him into some serious depression.

    Even if there were no side effects, I wouldn't take a magic pill that made me crazy buff.

    The best result from working out is that I remain very even-keeled emotionally. Even on the darkest, rainiest Oregon day, I can work myself out of a funk by doing cardio or lifting weights.

    No, not unless a doctor felt I had a medical condition which would be treated by them.

    Like some of the others have said it's a tough question. I would probably give them a try but the preference is to be natural. I'll admit I've tossed up the idea and had friends offer them to me mainly due to the frustration of waiting to get to my goal - and I'm still a little way off yet.

    Steroids can be used the right way and not always a bad thing. it's only when they are abused that they are a problem.

    Check out this article about a guy who has ben shooting juice for about 30 years and then see what you think:
    http://www.t-nation.com/article/atomic_dog/steroids_forever

    Mind you this is taking it to the extreme and like I mentioned steroids can be used properly if not abused.

    Though for me it would leave me on bit of a guilt trip knowing I had cheated in getting to my goals.

    I'd like to find any factual benefits in the use of steroids icon_rolleyes.gif, but I just cant find anything. There is not a CHANCE IN HELL that I would even attempt steroid use. After all, what damage is worth the use.

    Personally, I wouldn't take the risk - plus I don't feel a need to use them. What worries me is the number of men with great physiques who have the whole body dysmorphia thing going on who are tempted to roid-morph. Side effects aside, the ubermuscular look just doesn't look that attractive IMHO. I want a fit, healthy, height and weight proportionate body that the average guy would find fuckworthy.

    Nah, I wouldn't use 'em. I'm about the size I want to be, just a little more to go anyway, and I don't like the idea of chemically altering my body.

    Au Natural is the way to go, no offense to guys who take the other road. It's just not for me. icon_biggrin.gif

    for those of people who said do it naturally


    how do you define natural?

    no protein supplements?
    No Creatine/amino acids/NO?
    No prohormone?


    i am not on any supplements at the moment. but if anabolic steroids were legal, it is the only supplement that worth getting.

    I would again to clarify that I understand there are certain side effects associated with steroids and long-term health risk is unknown. I am by no means pro-steroids or a steroid user.

    I think non-US residents are more open to the idea of use steroids, it looks like USers are bombarded with negative news of steroids abuse. It is probably more like a taboo there, then again recreational steroids use is more prevalent in the US than anywhere else in the world since the rest of the world just dont dig the HULK look as much.


    I was think if I could fake a hormony deficiency and get testosterone off PBS.

    COLORED TEXT GOES HERE
    If steroids were legal, everyone in sports would be using them. Let's be realistic, many people in the gym use them. It's all part of the business.
    Prohormones are considered steroid precursors.
