The "Ultimate Steroid Survey" Results

A total of 1152 people took part on what is probably the biggest survey ever done on anabolic steroid use. We wanted to know what the modern day steroid user is like, how much he/she spends on steroids, do they suffer from "roid rage", how old, what sex, why they started on steroids, how many times they have bought, have they been scammed etc etc etc.

Well now we know. A massive thanks to all who took part....

Take a look at the results for yourself. (At the foot of the page I have listed what I think are the most interesting points.)

NOTE, the percentages may not always add up to 100% exactly. The reason for this is that either some people did not answer a particluar question or some may have selected a multiple answer.

Interesting reading, here are the most interesting points of the survey for me:-

  • Most steroid users are 22-35 year old single males with no children. Education was not a significant factor as the percentages represented any cross section of society. There was certainly NO tendence towards a lower education.

  • The main reason why people did not do steroids previously was due to lack of information to correctly inform them

  • Most people who buy through the Internet repeat purchase, although 1 in 6 approximately gets scammed (We know that in general this percentage is MUCH higher, but as many who took the survey ordered through the links we have to suppliers they are very well protected against being scammed).

  • Most users are "beginners to intermediate" with only a very few having done steroids for more than 5 years.

  • Whilst the majority do not experience any side effects, those who do almost always experience one of the following: Feminizing effects in males (growth of breast tissue), Shrunken testicles, Reduced sperm count, Impotence, Infertility

  • Hardly anybody feels that steroids made them feel more violent, and that "roid rage" is generally someones ego out of control.

  • The main reasons why people started on steroids were to become stronger and to get a great body fast, and easily the vast majority feel very happy with what they have achieved with steroids.

  • Almost everyone who used steroids found they eat better, exercise more, feel heathier, have gained muscle and lost fat, and believe they have a better appearance and attitude.

  • Most people spend under $1000 per year and feel totally in control of their steroid use

  • Almost everyone stacks, with Sustanon and Deca being the favourite drugs. If given the chance most would use growth hormone.

  • Very few use other drugs, and the few who started to use other drugs after starting steroids do not feel steroids had anything to do with their decision.

  • Almost everyone handles their own injections.

  • Most people felt they were correctly informed before use. The source of their information came from either the Internet or people in the gym.
