The world around us involves cheating to get or look good. Athletes and teens are doing the same thing, injecting and swallowing a drug that is part of their everyday lifestyle. Lost in a world of drugs that won't put them in the Hall of Fame but in the Hall of Shame. Influence by pressure and appearance to do well is a way described as putting your reality upside down.
Steroids have become an athletic advantage to those becoming the best. Steroids first used in the early 1990’s were used by players as an everyday supplement, providing a boost in their game. This has evolved into a daily habit for players and teen accessing a life destroying choices just to be the best for once.

An article by Amanda Woerner from Fox News states that the “PED’s help the player be more consistent throwing and hitting. Because the drugs help them work their fast-twitch muscle fibers better than they would normally be able to without drugs” (Woerner). Contemplating that we as people think we can get fit one of two ways either physical and mental training or just injecting a needle that will do all the work for us.
