Looks like the increase is only in the number of people visiting this charity's needle exchanges, not an increase in users.

The government estimate for steroid users for 2012/13, males aged 24-59 was 59,000, and the proportion of users for that population is given elsewhere as 0.2%. In 1996 it was 0.3% and seems to have been either 0.1% or 0.2% since then. So it looks like numbers have actually been quite steady for some time.


I wonder what was the AIM of the report today? No studies are done independent of adgender.
Re-classification on the way?

anadrol. its the perfect chav drug, adds loads of mass (mainly to the face) and they are too scared to inject.

Interestingly, this doesn't just seem to be a UK/European/American phenomenon.

My sister has been working in Dubai for the last 8 years and tells me that recreational steroid use is rife. It's all very materialistic out there and when you're in your tight Armani t-shirt you want to look good in it.

This research has come out as a result of that Kid who was in the news last week who apparently died from use. That's all. It gets people talking and sells.

It's always gone on.



I met that lad a few times and a few of my mates were friends with him/trained with him

But with the greatest respect I think it was something far more than peds that led to his death he had a very addictive/obsessive personality which sadly led to what happend

don't get me wrong, im all for people doing things that they want to do but don't lie to yourself (and mentally vulnerable harry kids) pretending that its not going to have any negative side effects.


I think it works both ways Jack. A lot of natty guys demonize peds wayy too much and over exagerrate the possible negative side effects.

Is that really a problem though? Compared to the "gurus"/dealers selling to teenagers?
