    I was talking to a friend of mine at the gym a little while back who happens to be quite strong and in great shape. He is about 45 years old, and been lifting weights and playing sports since he was a teenager.
    The topic of steroids came up in a chat we were having and he mentioned he too had never used them as a young guy... however, whilst in his early 40's he did his first cycle. One of the main reasons he did it had nothing really to do with getting stronger or becoming more of an athletic speciman, but he did it moreso for the increase in test he felt he was lacking. Basically to make him feel younger.
    He attributes a happier more vibrant lifestyle to the start of a few cycles. He only did it a couple times, he used the time to make gains in his sports and at the gym as well, but that was secondary.
    What are those of you who have done cycles, or haven't I guess, think of this?

    Sounds like he's enjoying the benefits of testosterone, something he's probably lost with age.

    I think that he's taking the easy way out. THere are more natural ways to increase your testosterone. If he was that concerned about it then he should have visited a doctor for a true test.

    I know a guy that is 57 y/o and we always talk training and drug use. He said that he has boosted, not only his test levels but energy levels (go hand in hand) just by taking OTC supplements and changing his diet a little bit to assist in the production of testosterone. Even if he hadn't increased it and just thought that he did...he's stillenjoying the benefits; as strength and size have definately increased for him.

    I also know a guy that was in his early 40's that decided to try his first cycle. He was doing it for the main reason of looking better and being bigger. He said that he was tired of the young kids of this generation having all the fun, thats an actual quote. This guy was a doctor....key word, was. He as making about 250,000 a year and had a wonderful wife and a huge house. His steriod was got out of control (never abused it, just continued over a long period of time). His wife divorced him and he lost EVERYTHING, from his job to his house. He know holds down a 50/year job and dates 20 somethings.


    it could go either way.

    I was always super horny on Test, but as far as feeling "good" when I was taking Dbol, I always felt at ease, like some kinda drug induced zen or something.

    I'm going to be doing some bloodwork soon to see if I can get a doctor to prescribe an HRT protocol for me...if not I'll just prescribe my own. I plan to start this on or around my 30th birthday next year.

    Sounds like he had much bigger problems than steroids.

    Yeah, that was the otherside of the coin I was thinking... in any case of drug use there is the chance of abuse.
    I just thought it was interesting as this guy was super cool and down to earth about it. Very humble guy, but being in his 40's and looks great and says he feels like a million bucks. (he hasn't done a cycle since)

    Lol 200gt, dont not read into that, i have many friends that are older an none of this has been an issue. Theres to these stories, usually they get hooked into the lifestyle and end up on rec drugs, also the horniness can be an issue if you got a wife that doesnt put out. But its not directly related...if you have no will power then ya...dont do them

    Yeah, I catch your drift, it ain't no Ponce De Leon and in fact, from what I understand (which isnt much about steroids) it will in fact have a chance of shortening your life span.
    I have no business taking or even commenting on the use of steroids, however, the point of this thread was just an eye opener at the differant perspective of the use of these drugs.
    Today you can turn on the TV and see pro athletes all over the world being scrutenized for there drug use. You can go to a highschool football game and see teenagers who havent even got pubes yet, muscling about in bodies fit for greek gods and such... its just another perspective on the use for a non natural increase in Test.
