I’m a single mother, I’ve worked out all my life, and introduced my son to the gym when he was a teenager. However, since about his senior year in high school, at about 17, he started using steroids he ordered online and hiding them from me. I thought he finally quit last year, when he went off to college, but now he’s home for the holidays and I just found a new stash in his room.
He’s 19 now, and over the past two years he’s lied to me, stolen money from me to replace the steroids that I threw out, and is becoming increasingly rude and hostile toward me–until he wants something. Classic addict behavior.
The package I just found contains:
Generation II SRX labs
…and some other crap.
Now he thinks we wants to go off and become a Navy SEAL and is probably taking them again to boost his training.
I’ve tried to explain to him the negative effects of steroid use. I’m a single mother and have no one to help back me up in talking to him. I’m extremely concerned for his health, both physical and mental. Does anyone have any information or advice on anything I can say or do that will possibly reach him? Any place a parent can go to find out how to help an adolescent addicted to steroids? I just want my son back!
