It seems that there is someone else getting into a side gig that he definitely should be, this time it is taking place in Ohio. One man has been caught selling anabolic steroids, something that is a very bad idea. I have family and friends that are living in Ohio and I couldn’t imagine steroids being pushed in that state but I can’t say that I am surprised. No matter where you call home, there seems to be more steroids being handed out and I’m so happy that is being cracked down upon. What could be the most dangerous way of thinking, that comes with continual steroid usage, is the fear of losing everything you have worked for.
One of the reasons that I got away from anything having to do with steroids is because I saw, firsthand, the destructive way of thinking that those hormones can give you, something not often talked about. Everyone first thinks about the physical damage that a steroid can to do you, without thinking of the mental blockages that steroids can provide you. When you begin using a steroid, you get accustomed to life on easy street, so to speak. When I was foolish enough to use a steroid, all those years ago, I noticed that it felt like everything clicked into place. What I had wished that I had known was that the feeling of everything being easier was only a trick that was being placed on my brain. That sensation that steroids make lifting easier drives more people to stay on them, sometimes for decades. With long-term steroid use comes the risk of so many different ailments, ranging from mild discomfort to death, that it really shows you there is no place for a great life and steroids at the same time.
Without even getting into the laundry list of physical side effects that are associated with steroid use, the effect that kicked me the hardest and got me to denounce steroids forever would be the mental ones. I had felt like a world champion working out but it was only the steroids that were creating this false sense of security. When I stopped all steroids, I saw that muscle leave me, nearly just as soon as I had built it up. I felt like an idiot for giving away so many years of effort, just to see it all get thrown away once I decided that I needed a more natural regimen in my life. For one man in Ohio, he is seeing his entire life change, all over a decision that could have been avoided. Let this be a lesson to anyone who is trying to steroids in the wrong hands, there are many different groups who are there to protect the safety of the people and they are ready to perform their job with the highest level of efficiency. I know that I will never fool myself into thinking that steroids are the answer for life’s problems. Trust me, you can achieve the strength that you long for, if you can put in the time and work. Time is a funny thing and it will pass, no matter what we try to do to slow it down, so why not start now with strength training without the use of steroids?
