Reading the blogs and threads it's hard for someone to understand why roids are so bad. People not so knowledgeable say "Cause they cheated" and let it go at that. I had some pretty bad experiences with kids and some adults who were doing steroids when I was a cop. "Roid Rage" is real! Alot of kids who were football players and wrestlers in high school started taking them and working out. Since they didn't know what they were doing, alot of them ended up addicted to some other drug because of the pain caused by ripping their muscles so much. One kid had a full wrestling scholarship to college, blew it because before wrestling season started shooting heroin and killed himself by shooting up with lysol toilet bowl cleaner and hanging himself from a tree.
Just some thoughts, especially after the physical problems Giambi had when he stopped taking them 2 years ago.
