Every type of steroid affects different parts of the body. Steroids are used for many different reasons; some are to get better in sports, to be better than your competitor, or to just be strong. Athletics is the main place where steroid usage is noticed. Many athletes take it, hoping it makes them better than everyone else, or people take it to satisfy their selves. Many people think steroids are good for them, but in fact steroids tear apart the body.
There are also many types of Anabolic steroids, testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, androstenedione, dehydroean drosterone, clostebol, and nandrolone (Szumski 13). The anabolic steroids other name can be “dual personality drug” because it makes a person basically bi-polar (Dolan 23). Weight lifters were some of the first athletes to use steroids, but there was still no guarantee it would work (Dolan 25). Sports players suffer career crushing blows that the person uses performance-enhancing drugs to get back in the game (Dolan 55). Amphetamines could be obtained legitimately to outside sources including the black market (Dolan 58).
