    Who do you tell about your gear usage?

    When someone says or asks if im on gear, i always brush it off or deny it. People seem to be under such a stigma about juice, and its just not worth educating them. But hey maybe i should just say screw it and talk about it like some bodybuilders do on social media. I dont know if i want that kind of attention though. So what do you guys do when you are hit with the "what are you on steroids ?!" (Which is a flattering remark if you ask me)

    The only people in my life that know are My supplier,my old trainer and one friend that kinda started me on this road of gains.
    I know my wife who is a little bit on the naïve side thinks the trt is whats helping me make my gains.
    I have been asked many times by people if I am on steroids and I just deny it,although I do take it as a compliment.

    I did a have guy at the gym come up and ask me in front of 5-6 people if I did a lot of steroids, I looked at him and asked if he ate a lot of donuts. Everyone thought it was funny but him for some reason.

    Its the demeanor of the question too. Athlete to athlete its more like "wow what did you stack, you look great"
    But fat guy to athlete might sound like "i am ignorant and assume that steroid use is cheating and leads to roid rage induced homicides"
    Haha i dont know how to articulate it but you know what i mean.

    I know that there are a few guys in the gym that are running gear just from the knowledge that I have gained on this forum and knowing what to look for and the results. I am also sure that the same one look at me and think the same.

    When anyone asks I deny it, just simpler. My wife is the only one who knows. Having said that I see several guys at the gym and there is no doubt steroids are part of their routine, and I am sure they are aware of my use...

    I dont care who knows. One guy told my girlfriend "Is he taking steroids ? I had friends that took steroids and it turned them into assholes". My girlfriend said ask him. "Well he got way to big too fast and I like (me) and I am worried about him". He later asked me if I was on something and I said yes but its not like on tv. If you know what you are doing you will be fine.
    Others know I use, my old boss amoungst other friends and family. It was kind of a given they knew I was back on because the last time I got big I was 21 and thought it was a brag.
    So nearly ten years later I shoot up 40lbs and my family doesnt have to wonder.

    Those who know me no longer ask. They assume; like most.

    Completely upfront with my wife, bless her soul. Plus, she asks what's new here on the forum (what a keeper!).

    Sometimes wish I could tell my students some of the stories you all relay here. I think the honesty would be a great thing. I always think being upfront with my kids works the best, but talking about this just might not be the wisest move.

    My wife knows everything. If I could not trust her with that knowledge I should probably reevaluate my relationship.

    I pretty much tell everyone and i am becomming real good in these discussions and who ever wants to go in the argue with me, find him/she self loosing the debate.

    My favourite argue is from the Utøyakiller-case. They thougth steroids were triggering his actions, but the lawers found no documentation nationally nor internationally a direct connection beetween the use of steroids and criminall behavior.

    I'm quite sure everyone assumes I'm on but everyone has the class not to ask...plus ive been training for over 20 yrs so everyone has seen my progress over that time so again no one asks...I think its retarded to freely let everyone know your using, that just invites trouble...my wife knows my training partner knows I see no reason to announce it to the world...what good can come of it...my ego doesn't need the boost knowing that everyone knows that's for sure...

    See thats why i left the industry and the educational career. To stop licking ass and to act as u are Jesus. I am my own boss, run my own taxicompany and i say what i want all day.

    Ofcourse this isnt the case for everyone and if u wanna roll with mainstream ofcourse u talk mainstream. Or else ist retarded, that ill agree on.

    My wife knows because she's into it as well and injects me and makes up pretty mixes for me with B-12 so it looks like a lava lamp....Austinite gave her the idea.

    I don't tell anyone else. It's not worth it IMHO. People talk too much IRL.

    I tell everyone here though

    Its legal to purchase, own and use over here in the uk.
    I still dont go around telling everyone that asks. My close friends know, and some of my family.

    Average joe on the street has no business knowing about my life.

    I have been lured into conversations where people in the office start slagging off steroid users as cheats and blaming them for incidents like Raoul Moat. I tend to shut them all down with some basic facts, and then blame my knowledge on my TRT experience.

    I think most people ask because they like to think you look that way because you took a short cut and that somehow makes them feel better about their own poor results.

    No its extremely grey area.

    Black market purchases are illegal
    Purchases outwitha pharmacy are illegal
    It is illegal to order online
    You may import personally with up to a 3 months supply
    Pharmacies in UK don't sell them.

    However if you are caught with them u suspect that you will have a hard time staying out of trouble

    Not legal OTC.

    If I go to my UGL and buy whatever, I am doing so legally. It is he, the seller, that is breaking the law.
    You can bring steroids into the UK legally. The grey area is the dosage. I could bring in a haul, and say I am dosing 5grams a week. I dont really know where that line lies, how much is acceptable as personal use is not really defined.

    Thats at my last check of the law anyway. Im not aware of any other changes to it.

    I dont tell anyone, and will deny it if somebody asks.

    Of course the wife eventually found out, and a good friend at the gym also knows.

    I gave her some anti-aging bs for her to read.

    Pretty safe she doesnt want it herself, as she hates needles. Only thing she bears is MT2 to get tanned.

    People come up and ask and I'm blown away as it's obviously(as we all know) not something you just ask someone!!

    On the other hand, I also take it as a compliment but would deny it till I died(unless they were killing me lol) but like Kel says 'if they don't know then you aren't doing it right'

    Noone cares about my usage and folks probably can't even tell because yes I'm strong and in shape but I'm way under anyone's radar. Wish I looked like Gunther but it's not happening as those guys are remarkable how they have transformed their bodies. I wonder how they truly do it.
