ADULTS TAKING STEROIDS FOR PHYSICAL SELF IMPROVEMENTNowadays, majority of the adults are heading towards non-medical anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS).The consumption of such steroids is not that they are cheating athletes or risk taking teenagers. Most of them who are taking it are aged 30, well educated and just want physical self-improvement which can motivate them at their workplace too. Use of such steroids can increase muscle mass, strength, and physical attractiveness in males also includes increased confidence, decreased fat, improved mood and attraction of sexual partners.

AAS users are quite different from the other drug abusers. AAS users are much more strategically planned to maximize benefits and minimize harm, unlike the drug abusers who have careless approach towards psychotropic drugs. The people who are undergoing the use of AAS are much cautious in their diet, exercise and lifestyle. They do not have a loss of control over their senses as the abusers of heroin and cocaine.

The vast majority we have seen that AAS users are not athletes and are mostly the regular masses. Thus the survey actually showed that the use of steroids by people must be regulated on a issued public policy so that no contradictory views can be put forward and questioned as stated by Collins.
