Mostly for students...
I've asked this in the past, but as a general principle. Now I'm asking for actual experiential feedback. For those of you who cycled during school, or even an intellectually demanding job, do you feel that AAS detracted in any way from your "classroom-esque" performance? I can see how the increased confidence part and parcel of AAS might help, but i also have heard some compelling evidence to the contrary...which is primarily why i'm so interested in ACTUAL experience.

I can tell you from my experience that aas did not affect my school or grades at all. I thought they might help in certain classes when I had to make a presentation and make me feel more confident when speaking but they didn't. I've made the same grades all my life regardless of aas. I think I will do a little more poorly this semester since I spend a lot more time on this da mn board than I should. No difference here. I have gotten more compliments from the opposite sex though.

yes it has affected me in skewl. all this eating eveyr 2 hrs. and eating in class. marks are in check. but it is distracting for me ! its just the food !

i thought it helped me just by the boost in confidence....not really any smarter, but just more apt to ask questions and things like that...

i personally find it harder to concentrate. my work requires pretty serious focus (pharmacology research) as far as reading journal articles, and learning how to do complicated experiments, not to mention class with the medical students. i had read in the past that aas make it harder to focus, so i kinda paid attention to it on my last two cycles. maybe its mental, but i could sure tell the difference

I found it easier to focus and do work. My memory seemed to be better as well.

I love it when girls confront me. It is always the classic "No, creatine baby"

Its not so much that my grades are affected, but when i'm on a cycle its all i think about all day. Makes it kinda hard to really get into whatever i need to study, but i've learned to study while on a cycle. If i draw my focus to my classes then i get really into the material, as when i focus on my training and diet i get really into it. If it wasn't for the **** side effects i'd use AAS for longer cycles and more times per year!!!

no effect. now a gf, thats a completely different story...

but (and i know there's no scientific basis for this) i definitely felt more focused, had better retention of studies, and thought more clearly when i was on...

the AAS itself doesnt make school harder the eating, trying to go to bed earlier, training time, and research time it takes...just takes up more time giving me less to study

Thai guy is that ronnie in you avatar. **** he is bigger than huge in the offseason.Well Regarding school, i think that AS help my performance in everyday life. I always feel an overall sense of well-being when I running a cycle. So it makes it easier to deal with all the bull**** that comes with college.
Whatcha gonna do brother......

I personally find it harder to get studying done when on...very time consuming but if you wanna do it right you need to sacrifice...next cycle I will look into more on if it actually effects my grades....anyways its worth it peace

well, at least it wasn't in the 3rd person, so you *are* getting better.

Hulkster-no, thats not Ronnie. It's some guy, I've seen his pictures, but forget the name. He's mind boggling big.

The only problem in concentration is that when using aas your focus during that period is on your body. IE training, eating right, rest and recovery, and sticking to a schedule. This becomes increasingly difficult when you factor in classes or career or both in some cases. I am 24 and 2 years out of school and work for a reputable mutual fund co. in a very high stress environment. For me aas and training and all the other stuff that comes along with it is a welcome relief where I can channel out stress and aggression into a workout. So maybe look at it that way, if you are in school or whatever, use going to gym as a motivator for getting school work and studying done earlier. Then reward youself with an intense workout then food then rest.

Of the cycles I have personally done, I don't believe any of them interfered in my work or concentration..I don't ever remember being in the middle of a procedure and thinking, "Man, I can't wait to get that tuna sandwich"..I always make sure I am prepared food wise and have my workout planned out for the day and that helps take away the distractions..
