dc.description.abstractBackground: This study explored the direct experience of anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS) use by young men, with an emphasis on how motivations progressed from adolescent initiation to more entrenched usage. Participants and procedure: Nine semi-structured interviews were conducted with individuals ranging in experience of AAS use, from novice to experienced users. Results: The results indicated that the young adult men progressed through a clear transition whereby their motives for using these substances changed from a mere desire to compete with other men to more internalised body image problems. Conclusions: The findings presented suggest a more complex relationship between AAS use and body image pathology than previously suggested.en_US
