Even though anabolic steroids do not cause the same high as other drugs, they can lead to addiction. Studies have shown that animals will self-administer steroids when they have the chance, just as they do with other addictive drugs. People may continue to abuse steroids despite physical problems, high costs to buy the drugs, and negative effects on their relationships. These behaviors reflect steroids' addictive potential. Research has further found that some steroid users turn to other drugs, such as opioids, to reduce sleep problems and irritability caused by steroids.
Choosing the right syringe
How to choose the right syringe is a very important question and you undoubtedly have to know the proper answer to it. First of all, you will need the syringe for the required amount. The liquid is measured in cubic millimeters. Secondly, you need a needle which will enter deep into the muscle for optimal absorption. Also it need to have a sufficient diameter to pass the oil, but not too wide, so as not to injure yourself.
There are many different types of syringes available, some longer, some thicker. Most bodybuilders prefer 2-3 ml syringes. The best advice here if you are not sure about how to select the syringe is to consult your pharmacist.
The ‘Two-Pin’ technique increases sanitation for multiple dose vial users. They draw with the first pin, and then shoot/inject into the body with a new one. This procedure prevents any residual contaminants that may have remained on the drawing pin from being transferred into the body via the injection site. It also makes injection less painful since the drawing needle is necessarily dulled during passage through the rubber stopper atop the vial. A dulled needle increases injection pain because it doesn’t pierce the body as cleanly as an unused one. The protocol below is followed by AAS users who draw from multiple dose vials, but steps 4 - 8 are routinely disregarded by those users who draw from ampoules (also called ampules) and sachets.
