A million active steroid users means that on average, 3% of the male population (it is a male phenomenon, after all) is injecting steroids. That’s one in every 31 men working for the police, or the MPs you see bickering at PMQs. And when you look at it like that, it’s clear steroid use is not just a trend, but a cultural preoccupation that on statistics alone should change the way you perceive modern day Britain.

“Taking steroids has become a rite of passage for men,” says Dave Crosland, a former user who works as a harm-reduction counsellor. “And there’s no doubt in my mind that this explosion is down to the internet.”
It’s impossible to quantify how many users have properly researched the steroids they’re taking. But one thing we know for certain is that so many men are now injecting steroids in gym changing rooms that the demand for needle bins has gone through the roof.
