Cycling is a weird internet forum practice. Hormones arent meant to be cycled on and off. If you aren't willing to be on for life then you have no business taking AAS in the first place IMHO. Maybe you get lucky and recover, but maybe you don't and have to be on TRT for life anyway. I would argue it's healthier. It's undisputably more effective and efficient, and cheaper too. Way less emotional chaos/rollercoaster, etc etc.
I've only done one cycle, it's lasted about 7 months now. I'm on for life. I lifted for 14 years before going on, and researched a couple years before starting. I'm not trying to turn this in to a pro/con thread about cycling, but to assume cycling is the only way is misleading IMO. There are definitely two schools of thought, and many including myself come down on the side which says if you start stay on for life, or don't take AAS at all.
That said I agree 100% it's pathetic how little people research before deciding to casually try some steroids derp. Point being that doesn't have anything to do with B&C vs cycling.
Hell I'm still trying to get my estrogen dialed in perfect and only use test. It definitely a decision that requires a lot of information, research and commitment.
