If you have a cheating spirit and a cheating heart it is more of a selfish act and it is inconsiderate of the other competitors who have really worked hard to obtain their goals naturally. It shows that you are willing to walk over anyone at any cost. If you're willing to risk your life/health for fame/money, then you will have no regard for others.
In all actuality, when it comes to getting to the bottom of the problem, we need to start from the top and trickle down to the bottom. Or we can start from the bottom and move our way to the top. Doctors, coaches, trainers, meet directors, commissioners, managers, owners, and athletes all need to take responsibility for their actions. This includes some middle school coaches and high school coaches.
There are some people who claim to use drug enhancers for medical reasons, yet they want to compete in a drug free organization. How could that be? This is cheating! Making excuses for people because you “supposedly” care for them does not make it right, nor is it helping that person. It could eventually cost them their life, a history of medical problems, and/or disrupt their lives permanently.
Many of you may not want to hear the truth, but the truth is, if you stop living a lie, you may stop yourself from many troubles in the future. When you load up on drugs and find any way to cheat, it means that you don’t truly believe in yourself, or your abilities. The bottom line is that it means that you are weak—mentally and physically. Start truly believing in yourself and you will find true strength and happiness from within.
Another thing is that you cannot go from being on drugs to drug free then to lifetime drug free. You are painting a messy picture; a picture of confusing, messed up lies. Lifetime drug free means that you haven’t used drugs or performance enhancers and you’ve tested negative throughout your life.
I don’t admire someone who is on drugs. For those of you who say that it’s admirable, if anything, it’s a sad situation. There are many who believe that because someone in the sport of powerlifting squats, benches or deadlifts anywhere from 700 to over 1000 pounds (with the use of drugs) that it’s admirable. You need to get your conscious in check.
Stop the cheating, scheming, scamming and manipulating. If you don’t stop, it will eventually stop you. Once again, you will find true strength and happiness from within yourself, not from within a substance that you introduce to your body.
