Just as a precurser to this question, i am not planning to now or in the near future take anabolic steroids as i am only 19 this is purely for educational purposes. I was just looking for an insight into the health affects of steroids from the other point of view ie. not the media bash em up side.

I mean from what i have read the liver is affected the most. This seems in line with most drugs that place extreme stress on the liver. I have taken "" recreational "" drugs before i.e. ecstacy and cocain how does steroid use compare in terms of long/short term effects?

How too do steroids say compare to shoving a gutful of grog down your throat?

I don;t know if these comparasins are even viable however i am interested too know.

Cheers

It varies considerably. It is possible to use anabolic steroids in ways more responsible and less damaging than steet drugs or shoving a gutful of grog down your throat regularly. It is also possible to cause significant health problems and shorten your life span.

Like anything, abuse them and you'll pay a price.
