Anyone else find themselves happier using lower dosages of steroids?

Totally understand the nature of this thread.
I think everyone here can agree that they feel more satisfied when they are working toward their health goals and using safe dosage of AAS.

But happiness psychological. Happiness is just an evaluation of their current situation.
We "feel" happy because we have associate higher dosages with more risk. For some that is true, for some that might be less true. For some, "feeling happy" is about making gains and they feel healthy, yet not happy on lower dosages.

Once again, not crapping on this thread. But this is a "do you feel happy driving the speed limit?" type thread.
Yeah, we do. We are driving safely. But we also "feel happy" going 100mph.

I am happy right now. Ifeel great on TRT. My bloodwork is awesome, my libido is better, etc.
But do I feel happy about my body composition right now? lol not really. We're just weighing different emotions and trying to look at the present and the future responsibly.


maybe poorly worded or overly simplistic but after 20 years of gear and longer of some sort of mental awaredness and obsessing over drugs conciouness and some sort of physicality. i would say summed up in a nice neat nut shell. i feel better, physically, mentally and spiritually on lower doses of just test.

this in not saying i was happier
though maybe in some ways i am as if one feels better in all those ways maybe it would be easier to be happier?

though again after some time and perspective maybe the times i should have been the happiest were times when i actually was not. how confusing us humans are.

No doubt especially for older people 40s plus. I think our bodies can't handle all the abuse anymore.
Perindopril a bp med actually can help you lower BP and prevents your hematocrit from going too high.
How does that medication affect your sexual performance? I’ve trained a lot of men who could no longer stay hard during sex after starting high blood pressure meds.

Life is a continual struggle which produces the growth as men. Happiness is fleeting but i learned to enjoy its rare moments. Gratitude in every small thing. Been on both sides of the most extreme spectrums.. and less sometimes more when your world is right.

I understand what you mean, that is because happiness is something one has to find within them. One can have a close to perfect physique, a good job, a hot gf etc and still not have happiness.

It has affected it slightly tbh, however it is worth it. I can always use Cialis or Viagra if need be. High blood pressure will mess up the kidneys. I believe a combination of a Beta Blocker and an Ace Inhibitor is perfect for bodybuilders on AAS. Also those meds' side effects will depend on the dosage of the BP meds as well. Like I said though, we all have access to Cialis and Viagra, so it's well worth it to me.

Great point. Personally I think happier is the wrong word for what the OP is trying to say. State of mind, mental health, and better control of our emotions. Happiness comes after those.

If my life is in order. No pending drama, finances in order, no family problems, etc... I know personally I can run a gram of test a week spread out in 4-5 injections. I feel great, super human, and no worries. In complete control of everything.

Now add a major life event in there like car accident, family member sick, relationship or kid problems. Whatever gives you stress.... That’s going to change your attitude and “happiness” whether your on high dose or not.

Sometimes it’s not the compounds it’s the ability to have the epitome of poise. I do agree that in general lower dosages are easier for the body to handle. However, this goes for almost any drug.

Love this last part. Very true.

I feel normally and healthy on trt. I feel strong and huge on larger doses of food and supps. I feel more confident when lean.

I would say I am equally happy with any situation but do find myself wanting to do either diet more when I'm bulking or wanting to put size on when I am getting lean. I think a lot of guys feel the same.

I am on trt right now and feel pretty good.

Absolutely. 200mg test and 100mg Deca makes me feel great. When I did higher doses I may have been bigger and stronger but I was constantly battling side effects.

I think most of us sometimes neglect the fact that what we've built was done past the point of TRT

And now running even phys replacement dosages allows maintenance to a pretty good degree

Those satellite cells, and new contractile tissue just hold with proper training, and diet; but they weren't built on 150 mgs of test...Training is not the most popular topic nowadays as everyone likes to discuss mgs and inj frequencies. But there is a lot to be said about heavy progressive training with smart ex selection, and proper deloads year round, and maintaining muscle far beyond most guys think is possible

And each year you continue this, you look better and better both size, and look of the muscle wise. But hey, the hair on my head a little is thinner now too

Anyone found that after reducing dosage over time you look years younger in the face? When I was high dossing at 33 I looked 39. Now low dosing at 36 I look 30. Skin looks younger, face fuller, stomach not as veiny. Could also be due to walking around 20 lbs less and less overall stress on body.

Truth be told I’m truly happiest when I’m sitting on my ass being fat and lazy.

I have bruised ribs on both sides, so I've more or less sat out of training much for a couple weeks and you're absolutely right. Nothing like being fat and lazy for a little while. And in some cases you can even look better because you're not holding all the water via inflammation from training

Back at it again and back workout felt incredible this morning. I honestly am a firm believer in being fat and lazy, occasionally.

It’s the simple things in life like a belly full of pizza and a nap on the couch with my feet up while watching garbage TV that really make me content. If only my self esteem wasn’t so tied into my appearance.

I started Test/TRT at age 50, after 38 years of Natty training, Test levels were tanked with age, stress, statins, booze.

100mg is perfect for me. I tried 250mg once, (Im sensitive to this stuff) and Hematocrit shot up, PSA shot up, HDL went down, bloat went up a it, etc.
All things someone in their 50's does not want or need. I also felt shitty, anxiety, etc.

It makes no sense to me to take more drugs to counter the affects of another drug.

Back to 100 mg's, my bloods are stable, everything in range, feel amazing, etc. My Test levels are still in natty range 700 or so, so I just replace what may have gone with age.
I have since quit booze 1.5 years ago, stress level (job) plummeted to almost zero, so I am almost anxious to try a "going off TRT/recovery" protocol, just to experiment.
(Those bad things removed from my life, Im curious what I can get to Natty). Im thinking about it at least, until then I do my 2x per week of 50mg's Test-E.
