I know but selling them is and I'm pretty sure people aren't shaking trees and having them fall on their heads. I don't want to make too many assumptions but the only time I've ever been offered roids I was also offered a variety of class a's and some date rape drugs, what a charming fellow. Now I am pretty ignorant on the whole scene but if people are putting money into the hands of low lives such as him then the moral quandary of fair play in sports is a distant second consideration to me.

Smokers and drinkers pay tax, steroid users do not. Pay the government their cut and you can do what you like

Got to say I think its down to social pressures,OK OK arnie ,Lou,and co gotj uiced up and openly admitted it .but most people at my gym are not after the Arnie physic.watch the TV read the mags its all six packs and skinny jeans,lol There is a lot of pressure out there and body fashism at full steam ahead.as a side note check out the comment on you tube when you see someone like Bolton dead lift ,all people can comment on is what he looks like,wtf.

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


Not so much but it is f**king annoying.


In my mind it is a problem.

Over blowing side effects and attributing deaths to steroids where the death clearly was not due to steroids is a huge problem. People do eventually find out the truth, or at the very least differing sides of the story. The internet is massive and we have many stories of people living well into old age and living well in their old age due to use.

So when this information becomes known to people who otherwise saw steds as a killer, they find out the demonisation is largely politically motivated and/or scare mongering. This might lead them to experiment with use, it might lead them to completely go the other way and take massive amounts thinking that if it won't kill you, it's perfectly safe.

Now I've never wanted to use steds personally but I have trained in commercial gyms for close to 15 years and I know guys who have used for that long consistently. Their health is fine. However knowing that, some younger guys may take that to mean they are completely safe and abuse them. So lies never help the situation.

The pendulum inevitably swings just as heavily in the other direction. Sensationalism, scare mongering and outright lies never help a situation.

Steroid is bad for you BUT there are a lot of worse things you can do to yourself, such as living the typical British lifestyle and eating like an average Brit!

Always find it ironic that “drug-free" powerlifters/strongmen find it perfectly acceptable to get FAT as f**k in the name of strength (GBPF Bingo team), but will not do steroids cos its unnatural and bad for you... ummmm no, I'd rather stay light, strong and unnatural than be big fat and natural (much worse for you IMO)...

Kinda like those fat people ordering a s**t loads of crappy takeaway food and asking for a diet coke.... IRONY??

Grin True dat.

Maybe the person who orders the diet coke prefers the taste or is following a calorie controlled approach and it fits in his/her macros?

Average brit has a BMI of 27 and lives to the age of 79.5 for a male and 82.5 for a woman.

Do many PED users make it into the early mid 80s? I don't know but our friends in the strongman/bodybuilding/professional wrestling community have a habit of expiring before this age...

So maybe the average brit ain't so unhealthy.
