will steroids help or hurt the view i have on myself body size wise. no matter how much i work out or the size i gain i still see myself as being on the smaller side. i am 5'10 around 165 .the reason i am asking is i went from being 140 3 yrs ago hitting the weights off and on to currently 165-170 mark and even when i was hitting 180 i still lost interest because i felt small. is there anyone who can relate to this or am i just weird haha

if u want to live the bodybuilding lifestyle u have to be dedicated. i have already failed at one relationship because i put my body and lifestyle before her.
changing my physique is an addiction and will always be, no matter how big i get it will never be good enough....but atleast i can tell myself that.

I'd try developing the bodybuilder's lifestyle where you workout w/o taking months at a time off due to lack of interest and laziness. If you keep hitting it hard, you will make better gains and will be bigger and have a better chance of viewing yourself as acceptably "big".

I dont know if it will hurt or help your self image...I do know this though....they are some very powerful hormones, so you better be sure youre ready before you get on that horse...

i agree with what everyones saying the reason i normally quit has alot to do with my schedule working and going to school full time and trying to train how i want kicks my ass but the reason for the first question has a lot to do with a buddy of mine saying that after he did a test/ deca cycle was the biggest motivation because of the gains and now hes more dedicated than ever and also im about to move to school and there's a gym on campus that will be available

Body dysmorphia is an underlying issue that many people deal with and is often a motivator for the use of steroids. For the most part there are .01% with competitive aspirations or physiques. Very few who are even athletes.
For some the bodybuilding lifestyle is a means with an ends that is self improvement that just happens to result in physique enhancement. For others it can be an obsession with underlying issues that are related to self esteem and/or issues of inferiority or body dysmorphia.
Regardless of what people want to believe a 5'10" body with 250lbs of body mass is not conducive to longevity. But it is not until one is conscious of longevity is it a concern.

If you are self-conscious about your size, then you will probably find the loss of size when coming off a cycle (no matter how small) quite depressing.
