Help in a Crisis

If you're in a crisis situation — more specifically, if you're thinking about committing suicide or hurting someone else — that can be a reaction to what anabolic steroids or the withdrawal from steroids are doing to your brain, either directly or through secondary changes in your hormones.  Don't act out of desperation.  With proper treatment, the feelings of rage and despair will subside.  So get help.  If you feel it's an emergency but can't get immediate assistance from your parents or someone else you trust, call 9-1-1 or call the national suicide prevention line at 1-800-273-8255 (current information at

If your problem isn't emergent, you still need to talk to someone, be that a parent, coach, teacher, school nurse, or physician.  If you're on steroids and have decided to stop, that's excellent.  In fact, it's the best decision you could possibly make.  BUT you need to discuss your plan of action with a physician before you quit, one who's well versed in all the problems associated with anabolic steroids and the withdrawal thereof, because these are potent drugs that lead to real changes in your hormones and brain chemistry, and the outcome can be tragic if those changes aren't taken into consideration.  Visit where to get help for more information.
