I saw someone's question on here that got me thinking. A user asked about whether he should use steroids or not, and he said it so casually that it made me wonder if it was widespread.
When I think of steroid using guys I think of someone who looks like this link If a guy doesn't look that extreme, then I just assume he's natural. I saw a couple Jersey Shore reruns and Ronnie, I would bet money that guy has injected. But for the most part it's not something I think about when I see a muscular guy.
Is there a deep dark hidden underworld of steroid using guys, where many of them are doing it and it's just unspoken? Or is stereoid use rare?

Steroids per say... are not actually bad. But you have to understand how they work and why and when you should take them. They are generally medically prescribed to patients who suffer from low testosterone levels to get them to the normal range but can be prescribed for other medical reasons.
Everyone regardless of has a natural hromonal level with their own general testosterone level. Your body is adapted to make use of your natural levels and anything below or above it would mean you're body would attempt to regulate itself back to the normal range. When you take testosterone, it elovates these levels far beyond your normal range and you're body compensates by cutting down on your natural production levels (you're balls literally start shutting off) because of the outsources hormones coming in. When you get off steroids, you're body will be a mess and you'll suffer from beyond low levels and literally of f***ed yourself so they truly aren't advisable for anyone healthy in the long term.
Generally though they aren't that common at all, usually just guys who have no idea what they are or how they work will use them if someone suggests it to them but they aren't exactly that easy to get ahold off0
