T Nation

Honest About Using Gear?

Simple question,
So I am yet to do my first cycle but I have all my gear, PTC, pins and AI ready. My missus knows(she hates the idea, most of my mates know some of them think I’m cheating, but like I tell them lets face it I’m still natty at the moment and I’m bigger then they will ever be lol. I really like when guys who are juicing are up front about it and they completely own it because that’s all you baby you worked hard, you know the ones who suffer the most ridicule are usually the ones who have worked the hardest.

However now I find my self not wanting people to know I’m gonna be using AAS due to the fact that I’m sick of there uneducated health and life advice on the matter! My sister for example is so against it and is constantly telling me all this wrong advice that the media and uneducated nattys are spreading, I’d like to be up front with everyone (and i probably will) but god damn I’m sick of having the same old discussion.

thoughts??..

maybe you shouldn’t tell everyone you know that you are using illegal drugs

just a thought

exactly. The stigma of steroid use alone should be enough to make you want to keep your mouth shut.

Im not telling everyone that im using drugs? Were the fuck did you read that?! The guys i workout with and i talk about it and have been talking about it for a long time i was asked if i was gonna use them i said yes. Your obviously one of them fake nattys ay.

well if you’re not telling anyone, then what’s the point of the thread?

If you cant understand my point perhaps dont comment?

  1. Lie about it and only have to deal with the conversations of every one accusing you any way.
    or
  2. Be honest and deal with the stupid comments. Your going to get them any way it goes especially from family. Just how it goes.

Really only choices here.

… Please stop saying ‘nattys’.

this

you don’t think your missus talks to her girlfriends about it? you don’t think her girlfriends talk to their girlfriends about it? You think your boys keep it to themselves?

lol… you’d be truly naïve if you did. you would be amazed how fast word gets around

and yes…I do not admit to injecting illegal substances into my body, so I am a “fake natty”.

Ok so what’s you’re take on the pro bbers out there for example guys like Kali telling young guys that they can achieve his kind of physique without the use of AAS or the juiced up guys competing in INBA comps and taking out positions of natural guys who have no chance against them? I mean take what ever you want and get as big as you can however you want but dont claim to be natural when your not

there is a difference between flaunting something and telling the truth

Just send me everything that you have and that way you don’t have to lie to anyone say nope I ant doing crap. Though about it but decided better.

So… you would prefer to be honest and potentially get yourself a criminal record in the process?

In fact, if you want to be honest, why are you doing something illegal in the first place?

People are so ignorant and up the medias ass its not even worth telling most. Just depends who it is, the key is to get big enough to where there is no doubt in their mind so they don’t have to ask.

Depending on who you tell you will face adverse reactions.

Family/friends who dont use will discourage the use of AAS. As will most of the populace who hasn’t already been exposed to the idea of it through playing sports or lifting, or dating someone who has before (girls).

Dont go spillin your secret to every rando at the gym, you wont be doing yourself any favors. I tend to talk about it only to those who appear to use as well and happen to inquire. Its interesting to get differing ideas and might luck out and find a new source, but this will be only 1 out of every dozen that will outright ask or insinuate by asking about what ‘supplements’ you take.

Kali muscle has absolutely no credibility…

guys on gear who compete in natty competitions are cheating, plain and simple.

there is nothing wrong with hiding the fact that you are breaking the law… this really isn’t complicated… im not sure why you are having such difficulty wrapping your head around it.

have fun though, and good luck. hope nothing bad comes of it

This pretty much sums up my opinion on it as well. I’m not going to put it out there and I’m not going to tell everyone, but when someone who I think is like minded and not going to ramble on about how its illegal and bad for my body, comes up to me in the gym and says “hey man iv noticed you have made some impressive gains in the last 4 months are you using steroids?” I’m not gonna bullshit him and claim to be all natural.

It is interesting to see everyone’s take on this subject.
