Ask anyone, “What does it feel like to use anabolic steroids”, and most will give you a blank stare. Because I haven’t used steroids, nor do I know anyone that has, I had no clue what type of effect does anabolic steroids have on your daily activity or mind. You may be asking the same questions. Was it like speed? Does it make you feel invincible to take steroids?
You imagine the incredible hulk when you think about steroids. What steroids do for body building is unimaginable. It’s awesome to see a body grow, but grow safely. But do these athletes take these drugs for more than just the body building benefits? Often time, this is the case.
Steroids can produce a number of physiological and psychological effects. The psychological effects and attributes in steroid users can be profound, ranging from euphoria to sheer violence and hostility. The person taking steroids can feel over-powerful, and very energetic like “speed”.
So if steroids makes you feel mentally powerful and energetic no wonder it has the potential to addiction. However, on a grave and serious note, steroids are also well known to increase aggression, and aggression in any form is never good. Steroids can also cause mood swings and if you’re already bi-polar it can increase manic symptoms. Paranoia is the worst side effect of all. Do you really want to feel paranoid.
The bottom line message is to be safe. Always take steroids under Doctor’s orders. Steroids can make you feel good one day and a monster the next. Please take to heart the seriousness of anabolic steroids use.
