This. Coming from a fellow 19-year old who competes in powerlifting, don't take steroids, at least not yet. Not only are you too young to be making such an important decision, you are also (no offense) not strong enough to even have a legitimate reason to take anything, looking at it from a perspective of your lifting career. If you don't get stronger before you start taking stuff, you'll never be very strong with it. Not only will you most likely fuck yourself up because you probably don't really know what you're doing, you also most likely won't get the results you're actually after. If you get strong while you're in your prime, physically speaking, then what do you think will happen when you actually jump on gear? You can be a freak if you actually put some time and effort into your training before you start using steroids.
