You people overrate the enhancement roids give... On another note, others are overrateing the long term effects as their not nearly as bad as previous years.

I've known a couple of guys on steriods... more than a couple, actually, but only a couple of friends.

The mood swings are insane. And normal guys rarely stay on 'em for long.

all PEDs do are make u stronger and bigger they dont improve ur skill level. taking steroids will not help u hit a 95 mph fastball it wont help u dunk from the three point line u wont be able to throw a football 100 yards without touching the ground. Sports like hockey PEDs are not necessary since hockey is a finese game. Football i can see the temptation if u are a linebacker but other than that not really... baseball if u want to put on size hit the gym. basketball hit the gym.

and because of that i have to be honest and say that i would probably succomb to that temptation
it also depends on ur personality and who u are as a person i personally believe in doing it the natural way because if i am on the cusp of making the pros i will be jumping and down and crying tears of joy knowing that my hard work paid off.

Yeah, well. People can do what they want to their bodies, but I'll tell ya this much... I'd never date a guy on any of these performance enhancement drugs. It's not worth it, and I don't see the point unless being in shape is your career.

that's true but how about those who don't have talent and can only reach a certain level through hard work? hard work can only get you so far, look at dre baldwin lol. im not suggesting PED's of course but many athletes that have failed may take them if they could restart life

so many flaws there. Of course steroids will help you do all those things you mentioned. They will certainly help you dunk from further, swing a bat fasster and give you a harder slap shot. As you said they make you 'stronger', essentially they make your muscles work better.

There's a reason why track and field athletes are juiced up like you wouldn't believe - and it's not because they had to tackle somebody or win a wrestling match. If steroids weren't an effective way to cheat, then people would not have used them like they have.

yes i understand what ur saying since in track sports yes. in baseball however u still need a solid skill foundation i mean taking steroids will not help u improve ur hitting mechanics if u cant judge what a pitcher is going to throw or cant swing very well just taking steroids will not help u hit 70 home runs a season. mark mcgure, barry bonds, and arod for example even without the use of steroids would still put up all-star numbers. steroids for them in terms of their performance was kind of like the icing on the cake.

Again to me, it comes down to would you do it to simply have a leg up on someone. Would you cheat....

I can definitely say no, I wouldn't do it. I'm the same guy who once gave wrong answers to a guy on a test on purpose because he was trying to cheat. I'm also a guy who once, when the teacher put the answers down on the test by mistake and the entire class was looking at getting 100, stood up and announced what was going on. so yeah....

I'd rather put in the hard work, bust my butt and make it by knowing I had the talent and ability to do so.
