Anabolic Steroids for Today’s Young Me

A recent survey by a drug charity has revealed that young men are today increasingly turning to anabolic steroids to improve their looks as well as to boost their self-confidence.//

According to DrugScope steroids that were traditionally used by body builders and athletes to improve their performance, were nowadays becoming more popular among students, young professionals and building site workers between the ages 16 and 25.

The survey revealed that they were using the drug as a short cut to a muscled and toned physique.

DrugScope's chief executive Martin Barnes said, "The rise in the number of young men misusing steroids is extremely worrying and seems to be in response to a growing obsession with the ideal body image."

The survey was conducted on drug agencies and police forces in 20 British cities and towns.

It found that 11 areas had reported an increase in the mainstream use of steroids, which, are normally only sold by pharmacists to people with a doctor's prescription. Besides this the survey also found an increase in "speedballing" -- injecting heroin and crack cocaine simultaneously.

Harry Shapiro, editor of Druglink magazine said, "It is clearly on the increase and if this trend continues, it will be bad news for attempts to reduce the spread of injecting-related diseases and the number of drug overdoses."

DrugScope said that the use of powder or crystal MDMA, two forms of Ecstasy, had become more prevalent although the predicted crystal meth epidemic had failed to materialize.
