I guess that's ignorance on my part. I'm sure it might not be as abused in other parts of the world since it is regulated by doctors and physicians due to it not being illegal. I'm sure that there are still those hardcore people who shoot large amounts of it directly into their bloodstream but there may be a lot more people who use it correctly in other forms and don't go overboard. I know that here since it is illegal its easier to get the liquid form and inject it to get maximum results which makes it a lot more dangerous since its harder to get it in a different form. +1
Over here you are responsible still for getting your own steroids but the people i have known of who have had contact with steroids have always well researched what they are putting into their bodies and they known where its coming from and what exactly is in it basically educated themselves before hand
and they also know how to take it because it isnt just something you take once a day for an inevitable period of time you take it in cycles of weeks or months and once you start a cycle you have to carry it on you cant just stop mid cycle otherwise you mess with hormone levels in your body and that can create roid rage , and a lot of the time you need to know where and how to inject it if you chose that route of administration
one problem over here which i know of is getting steroids from undergorund labs which dont observe proper hygene regulations or arent expereinced in manufacturing drugs but lots of people go for them because they are cheaper
I knew someone that was a weightlifting personal trainer (ie he only trained weightlifters) and they said if you ever want to do steroids you have to start out being strong first and you have to have a good diet and good excersise regime and you have to follow this for at least a year properly before you should just even consider steroids it isnt just something you can take one night and wake up strong the next day .
its always good to know the risks of what you are doing with your body anyway not just with steroids but with everything you do and thats why people who abuse steroids are messing it up for other responsible users by creating a bad rep for steroids
