(Daily Record (UK))   One thing no one ever points out about steroid users - they go through as many needles as a heroin addict in a day, and are among the most frequent users of needle exchange programs set up for junkies   (dailyrecord.co.uk) divider line 10

Except most of the people who use steroids get them through medical channels or can get them from a pharmacy with no questions asked.

Also heroin addicts need to hit veins, steroid just has to hit muscle, not nearly as precise.

I think the point is that dirty needles are equally dangerous and have similar problems from a disease prevention standpoint

What I'm amazed by is how many seem afraid to inject themselves, they always hire someone else to do the injecting.  And that's how they get caught.

While I myself am not a former drug addict, I do find myself around them often. Not most but many of the men who used to inject heroin would have a desire to get all buffed out and they would inject steroids. To them it didn't count as a drug. And it was so damn obvious.

I wish we had a needle program in Virginia for my Marijuana addiction.

A 100-ct box of 3cc 23 gauge syringes costs $22 at Amazon. If you can afford steroids, you can afford clean needles.

Junkies re-use needles.  News at 11.

What steroids are you taking where you go through multiple needles a day? Very few require daily injection, none multiple dosing throughout a day. I can see peptides, which some people dose up to 4x a day, but you use cheap insulin needles for those and they are readily available.

/I have heard of some especially cheap bodybuilders using needle exchange programs
