How much do u hide your usage?
We talk about it pretty openly on this forum...But what about in real life? Do your friends/family know? What do you say in the gym when someone ask you about it seriously?
I think its funny how people are very proud of thier usage on here (As we found out in my abuse thread)...but what about in person?

Some friends, some of which i'm helping with PH cycles. In general I never mention ****, and if someone in the gym asks me about supplementation I always take time to talk about how diet is everything.

I never felt obliged until a coworker of mine checked a message on my phone while I was gone for a couple minutes, and it just so happened to be the shipment confirmation email that showed what for gear I purchased. And this pud was already taking superdrol for two months straight without any lifting experience prior, so of course he was asking me why I bought different products to accompany my cycle. So I explained to him about liver protection and post cycle therapy, but that all made him nervous cause he would have to spend more money. So, I left it go.
Back to the topic, if all these idiots in my town didn't judge a person soley how they got big, was by taking steroids, I wouldn't mind discussing it more. Once someone finds out someone has taken them though, that's the only light they'll put that person under. So I'm just going to keep my mouth shut and lift hard.

When I was using designers, I never talked about it. It just wasn't a topic that drew attention. People, guys, at my gym understood the whole deal but if I met a female of interest, I didn't jst say 'btw, I'm on m1t'. It just wasn't a good ice breaker.
My fam only thinks I've ever taken regular supps but my wife suspects that I have used steroids yet really doesn't talk about it...but, I know that she thinks that I have yet we've never discussed it....

I talked to my pops about it, though he isnt cool bout it. My lifting bud knows, and 2 other friends. Well they know I plan to, since I am not on anything yet. Figured they would notice the most being around me often if all of a sudden I add 15 lbs, get vascular as hell, and such. Most people wouldn't understand, so its better to tell them I switched up my workout and am eating differently or something.
Not to mention girls are a very touchy subject with it.

If you take creatine or protein and get any growth it must be from the roids. lol
I just make fun with it, that way they never know for sure if I'm on or not.
I talk about it conservatively to a few friends, but only 1 friend really knows when Im on or not. Sometimes he is in the dark also. No one else.

The same laws that "protect us" by design sell our health for money at every turn.
I do not advocate for any alteration of the natural body but have in the past used PH's.

I know a PH can shrink the boys a lil, but the rod itself remains fine if I am correct lol. If anything else like stated, I could seeing it being a lil extra swoll lol.

Nobody except my personal injection assistant (wife) ever knew diddly.

i tell.. only the people who i feel are responsible or are close friends or gf... i tell certin ppl that i may use steroids in the future but havent yet.. i work with a bunch of frat bros who have all taken injects.. but dont really know about ds/ph..so we tend to share info.. plus they all have sick domestic hooks as ijust found out..so it def worked out in my favor
also i dont feel bad telling alot of ppl that i will use test in the future..since i pretty much maxed out my potential.. before i used anything.. and am bigger then most of the uneducated ppl they know that have used illegal steroids.. i used only epi and tren solo once each.. and i was big before that

i talk to a few people but for the most part if somebody asks i will point them to the prohormone shelf at the local USN....if they persist about illegal aas i will get a mean look on my face and say steroids are illegal....what are you trying to say?...i look like a criminal? if you can pull this off with a straight face people usually get very flustered and walk away....ha!

I made sure I told Mrs. Player what was up when I started injecting recently. After she picked herself off the floor, I talked for an hour about what I was doing and how I knew what to do when sides occured. She cool with it now and I think enjoys the benefits she gets from me being on. I have no idea how these guys hide that kind of sh*t from their wives. Mine is way too smart to have me gain 20 lbs in 2 months and believe it was a new supp from the store.
My boss was looking me over the other day and I told him I was taking some OTC stuff that he was too old for and then I wrote him out a new diet plan.

ive only told my gf and 2 close friends.....but just about everyone else suspects. when i started taking whey and creatine when i was 18 my parents were 100 positive that they were steroids
my gf is definitely supportive and its great, my second cycle i didnt even tell her i started, but 2 weeks in and she was playing with my boys and said "u started again didnt u" i couldnt help but laugh and say "damn ur good"
06-02-2009, 01:03 AM
I am looking forwards to maybe The One, Epi, 1-T, and Tren... Not all at once, but one by one over the next 3-4 years once I decide to do hormonal.
Plus I plan on using SERM on everything except The One(but I have one on hand already just in case).
I still cant get over a 12 week superdrol. I mean maybe its possible, maybe I am missing something, but all the people who say 3 weeks is plenty! And some even drop out due to sides.

A couple close friends. I just told my GF tonight actually that Im going to be running a cycle. She doesnt like it but If its something she cant deal with then shes not the one anyway. My parents know. They just say be careful
06-02-2009, 02:18 AM
I used to hide it but I got tired of it. In fact I usually tell every girl I date within the first few dates. I actually can't wait until they ask me so I can tell them with my "i don't give a s**t what you think of me attitude(girls luv it). My current girlfriend asked me to go to the YMCA with her to work out and when she saw the veins in my arms she asked if I take steroids in an accusatory tone of voice. Without hesitation I said "I sure do" and looked her right in the eyes. I think she was so shocked at my honesty and confidence that all she said was "Oh...ok" and that was it. Been with her for over a year. The only ones I won't tell are my parents.

I tell nobody. Only done one cycle but even if I do another I will tell noone.
Not sure how many excuses I can keep coming up with for not drinking though. I'm a reputed drinker amongst my friends and it's weird when I suddenly and inexplicably refuse to drink for weeks.
Funny thing is since I started researching this stuff I have a friend that I now suspect has used. He's obsessed with the subject and very knowledgeable. I put two and two together and I think he's used gear. But I'll never confront him, he'll deny it and I really don't care.

Never really understood how I can ask my friend how he lost all that weight and he can proudly say "Lipo-6!" or any diet pill and everyone else will say "Good job man!!" then they'd ask "by the way howd you get so big?" and I'd say "oh, I use steroids" and then you hear a scratching record player followed by Crickets...

I would personally be a bit afraid to tell a girlfriend. Though it is a must, and I think she would know anyways...with changes lol.
