    Oral Steroids or Alchohol?


    So eveyrone always says that Oral steroids are harsh on your liver. What I want to know is just how harsh are they compared to say drinking alchohol?

    I typically drink while off cycle or PCT. I drink once a week and have about 10 Pints of lager or a bottle of vodka so my liver takes a hit quite a bit anyhow.

    Should I be worried about Oral steroids if I am not worried about the effect that alchohol is having on me?

    Does anyone have any decent articles compareing the effects from both?

    Thanks

    well first off saying that on a forum like this youre just going to get flamed by everyone saying "if youre deticated to bodybuilding you won't drink"

    however, i think i asked that question about 5yrs ago in my heavy partying days lol. the answer i believe someone gave me was that an average dose of d-bol was equal to about 4 beers a day. which is basically nothing

    the bottom line is that people really freak out about cycle support supps on here... and im sure alot of it is overdone. thats if u want an answer from a realist and not a diehard healthfreak

    Thanks thats exactly what I was after.

    I would NEVER drink on cycle as thats just a waste. But I do enjoy drinking when off cycle. You have to enjoy the body you are building!

    Steroids do not affect the liver the same way that Alcohol does. Alcohol affects the liver by accumulating fat within hepatocytes, which is the type of cells that make up one's liver. This build up of fat cells is what makes the Liver stop working.

    Steroids damage the liver by making it work overtime to filter out substances that it is not used to filter. This is what causes the huge spike in Liver enzymes. You can tell how hard the Liver is working by the level of it's enzymes. If you take an unwise dosage of steroids for a certain amount of time, your liver will shut down and then you will need a transplant. you're up ****'s creek.

    As long as YOU'RE WISE and pre-cautions are taken while taking a PH or Steroid you liver enzymes will return to normal after PCT.

    But to compare alcohol harshness to Steroid harshness is comparing apples and oranges.

    Yes surely alchohol would also put a strain on your liver as you are basically poisoning your body for 12-16 hours.

    I agree with Joeymutz, if you arent trying to compete then have a couple drinks. Nothing crazy like an entire bottle of vodka, but a 2 or 3 beers once a week isnt gonna kill you!

    so baseball, track atheletes, wrestlers, MMA fighters, football players all shouldn't use steroids? Steroids are used for many reasons; faster recovery, strength, size, etc. to say only bodybuilders should use them is ignorant.

    Comparing apples to oranges, really. It's impossible to determine exactly. Different steroids have better or worse effects. Everyone responds to alcohol toxicity differently. But if I had to put some type of EXTREME general comparison to it, I would say that a LOW dose of dbol every day is equivalent to 4-6 beers a day. But when it comes to things like 30mg of M-drol, I would compare it to a 750 of everclear

    There was a statement from someone who used to train with him (one of the other bodybuilders) who said they'd sprinkle dbols like raisins on their wheaties for breakfast....

    no doubt drinking is terrible for you on OR off cycle... but lets be real here. 2-3 beers on OR off is not going to kill you or do any long term damage. i'm not talking about pounding 15 beers and doing lines of M-drol while you're bro shoves m1t up your butt.. but cmon.

    don't yah think frat boys would be dropping dead by the day if this was the case?
