    Steroids Addiction: What to Do When You are Addicted to Harmful Strength and Performance-Enhancing Drugs

    Anabolic steroids, used illegally by athletes looking to gain a performance edge, once were confined to professional and college-level circles. Today, the dangerous drugs have transcended into high schools and middle schools, where even non-athletes have taken them to enhance their physical appearance.

    In fact, according to the 2006 Monitoring the Future Study, 1.6 percent of eighth graders, 1.8 percent of tenth graders, and 2.7 percent of twelfth graders reported using steroids at least once in their lifetimes.

    Among users, steroids (which are also called Arnolds, gym candy, juice, pumpers, stackers and weight trainers) have gained a reputation for providing a competitive edge. They're tempting to athletes, both men and women alike, because they increase lean body mass, muscle size, strength and aggressiveness.

    Sadly, what the users don't realize (until after they're addicted) is that the side effects of steroid use are serious, diverse and sometimes irreversible. They include:
    • Liver cancer
    • Heart attacks
    • Stunted growth
    • Elevated cholesterol levels
    • Mood swings/aggressive behavior
    • In women, facial hair, lowered voice, larger facial bones

    Further, steroids are known to be highly addictive, and once you start taking them it may be hard to stop. Withdrawal symptoms can be severe and include mood swings, fatigue, restlessness, loss of appetite, insomnia, reduced sex drive, and severe depression.

    What to Do if You're Addicted to Steroids

    Ideally, your best option is to not take the drugs in the first place. If you are thinking of using performance-enhancing drugs, you should examine the underlying feelings that may be driving this desire.

    'Performance-enhancing drugs are usually used because of a lack of confidence in the person's ability to perform at their best on their own,' points out Hale Dwoskin, CEO and director of training of Sedona Training Associates.

    However, if you are already addicted, you can overcome your emotional and physical attachment to steroids using The Sedona Method.

    This do-it-yourself tool will give you immediate relief from the effects of addictive behaviors whenever you feel you are losing control and will produce good feelings, including about your own ability to perform without drugs.

    It works by showing you how to tap your natural ability to let go of any negative thought or feeling including all forms of addiction while increasing your positive-thinking power.

    'The Sedona Method can be used to overcome any addiction,' Dwoskin says. 'All addictions are, at least in part, based on compensation for unresolved emotional content.'

    There are two ways you can use The Method to overcome your addiction.

    'You can allow yourself to release before you use the substance, until you feel OK whether or not you do,' says Dwoskin. 'Or, you can also simply stop using it and use The Method to release the feelings and sensations that this brings up so you can more easily stay with your decision.'

    Along with The Sedona Method, you can focus your thoughts on enhancing your physical form naturally, via healthy food, exercise and sleep, instead of with potentially dangerous drugs.
