"Here comes another one of my awesome analogies; steroids are like a cook that comes into your kitchen and makes you breakfast, lunch, and dinner and then leaves-now you have to learn how to cook to eat! Now how are you going to know how to do it? Testosterone supplements are like the delivery guy who brings you bags of ingredients and tells you to hit the kitchen and cook! The meals might not be as delicious, but at least you get your practice! "
"The use of anabolic steroids, in retrospect, will seem almost prehistoric. steroids are like the early biplanes. People got in them and crashed. But now people fly everywhere without a second thought. steroids have negative connotations because of harmful side effects, but get rid of the harm associated with enhancement, and where is the controversy?"
