Types of Users
“The majority of steroid users tend to be young, male athletes, although steroid use is not limited to bodybuilders and football players alone. Increasing evidence shows that athletes in endurance sports such as swimming, running, and cycling use steroids. Adolescents may use them to quicken the onset of puberty and maturation, plus male and female models may take them to improve their body image. Those in certain, physically demanding occupations, like law enforcement, bouncers, or military personnel may use steroids to build strength(SteroidFacts).” These types of people use steroids because they believe that using steroids will help them get to the next level of their athletic ability and in doing so, they hope to start either a professional career in their sport or to help them get a full ride scholarship into that college that they always dreamed of going to.
