    Creating this sub forum was an excellent idea.

    A majority of individuals that come to this website are under 25, such as myself, seeking advice. Most are fixated on using steroids , and despite that every knowledgeable member insists they wait, they more than likely never return on this website and do it anyways.

    Not a nuthug, but this an excellent idea and the first forum I've seen do this. This is largely beneficial to myself and others alike. I'm interested in seeing this grow.

    While only 18-25 in my head I just wanted to say that I just noticed this sub forum and think it's great. I am confident in a number of the younger members here that will help safetly guide other younger members in being safe and healthy!

    I personally find it hard to give someone at 19yrs old at 170lbs how to use steroids weather they are going to use them not matter what I say, my reasons are because of what ive seen,read and gone through doesn't sit right with my principles or morals but I am sure if you start a thread you will get some members especially the younger ones giving you the answers your require. This forum is huge and there is enough education threads to seek what ever you want and I don't think a seperate section would help your cause.

    I do hope you do recosnder your approach but if not best of luck

    Don't worry, I don't plan on using AAS until I'm 23-25, if then. I've read your thread on The Young and Steroids numerous times. I see this sub forum as a great component as younger members can relate much more to each other than older members telling them no without any if, ands, or buts.

    I do hope every young individual waits, however I know that is unlikely. After lecturing them on the risks and leaving it up to them to decide, I believe we should help them carry it out in the safest way possible, if that is their decision to start.

    Well done on waiting really pleased to hear that.

    There are some members who will advice no matter the stats so I feel there would be no point in the under 25yrs section, we cater for all ages and I can't see what the under 25 section would contain what this section can't, it would be the same people advicing so might aswell just get your answers in here..

    No a bad idea.

    But, i feel that this may be a breeding ground for irresponsible advice between young members, who themselves may have been ill advised. I certainly hope not. And i also think it would be a sound idea to have an (or several) experienced, knowledgeable member assigned to this forum specifically so that this forum can be monitored to prevent any unhealthy reckless advice from festering beyond these boundaries.

    I agree 100%. The last thing we need is an 18 year old fresh out of HS saying its okay to run Deca , Tren , Tbol, etc. as your first cycle. You guys need to be here. I see this forum growing rapidly in the near future with hundreds of new members. How many times do you see a younger individual ask a question, get told immediately not to do it, and never return after one post, more than likely hurting themselves afterwards?

    I believe this should be a friendly environment for young members such as myself but also strictly enforced

    I think alot of the friction on this topic is youngsters will ask and we tell. But if the advice isn't up to their expectations, then it creates a back and forth that becomes counter productive. I'm never going to directly tell someone what they should do with their own bodies. But I will try to guide them. My son is 21 and comes here. I had "the talk" with him over a year ago about steroids , and why he needs to avoid them. I treat all the youngsters the same as I treat my son here, and would never advise anything that could cause long term damage. And if I were not here, and my son were to come asking, I sincerely hope that someone that has been around awhile would try to open his eyes to the long term health risks associated with this particular age group.

    It's all about love, and I'd hate to see anyone harm themselves unnecessarily.

    This is a great idea. I have run two courses in the last 2 years. Both were recommended and supplied by someone I thought clued up on this topic.
    Reading these forums now, I wish I had found this earlier! My courses were badly planned, no AI and only HCG for PCT. Add in my age and the whole thing was a cluster ****.
    It actually amazes me how little I knew, as just a gym goer, it's just 'known' that taking 'Deca and Sus' will make you massive. There is so much more to this whole topic than just hearing rumours from that big guy at the gym.

    My advice from a 23 year old - plan it fully, and WAIT until you're 24-25, get the most out of it, do it properly.

    Just my 2cents. The members here supply good, sound, and well researched advice. Heed it, lest you regret it!

    i think that the younger people would be more open to changing their minds about using AAS if it was coming from someone like myself (24 yo), rather than older guys that are telling them no, dont, and stop...

    but yeah hopefully this section just doesn't become a place of young people giving other young people reckless advice... next thing you know the HRT forum will have a thousand new threads. lol.

    sometimes your "informed accurate information" seems to be reckless advice...
