I have no authority, so you can choose to ignore this. I've noticed a lot of guys either cautiously or candidly ask questions about steroid use in this forum, and I've read all the replies and recommendations to these questions. It's clear to me that no one in this forum knows enough about steroid cycling to be giving advice (or if they do, they are abstaining from speaking, like myself, or possibly screwing with the noobs, which would be REALLY fucked up with something as potentially dangerous as steroids). There are many bodybuilding forums out there with subforums devoted entirely to anabolic discussion (and we're not talking about prohormones). I don't recommend listening to them, because many are total juice-monkeys and commonly say things like "I don't care what anyone says, at 2g (of testosterone) a week, MAGIC HAPPENS!" or "TRRRRRRRRRRRRRENNNNNN!!!!" But at least many of them do work hard to study and understand steroids- even if they've never learned a method for discerning information from misinformation- and none of them will tell you to take anything that they haven't done. I own and have studied (not just read) six books on steroids, ranging from the scientific ("Steroid Biochemistry") to the practical ("Anabolics 2004"). These are just the books I own. I'm not claiming to understand the subject or these books perfectly, because chemistry/medicine/nutrition are not my profession, but I did, at least, receive a 99/100 in my organic chemistry class on my final 10-12 page paper which was steroid-related. I know I come off as haughty, but please don't disregard me. I'm just concerned. I know a lot of you guys are considering steroids, and I really see no moral wrong in it as long as you aren't cheating a competitor. But please understand that although the medical community and the mainstream population have in many ways unjustly maligned steroids, this is not creatine, or chromium picolinate, or some other crazy bottle you found on the back of the shelf at the GNC: you need to KNOW what you're doing here before you do it. Best case scenario: if you can learn from someone who knows a local doctor who advises patients taking steroids. There are doctors out there who- like me- see no moral wrong in it for the general population, or who personally oppose it for health reasons but realize some guys are just going to do it no matter what (like women getting abortions in countries where it's illegal) and believe the best way for them to care for these guys' health is to advise them and monitor them. Hell, I've even heard on some forums of doctors who use themselves. Just, please, let's agree a mixed martial arts diet subforum isn't the right place for anabolic discussion.
