BDJ: Could you relay your own experience with drug use?
SO: This is an area of great interest for people. I don’t care who wants to take steroids, because that’s a personal choice… that’s his life. Now, today, everybody has access to them. I even saw in one of the big magazines that Arnold denies having used them, but Arnold was one of the first to bring steroids over to America . And everybody in the old days used them: Zane, Columbu, myself, Arnold, Larry Scott, Harold Poole, Dave Draper, and even Steve Reeves . There’s no way to deny it. It wasn’t much, nothing like today. But the development of drugs is much different. I used decca and dianabol, and that was something really big at the time; and decca was not considered that bad. It was even prescribed by doctors to help make your bones strong. Today you have guys weighing 200 pounds, and six months later they weigh 250-300 pounds! So you know these guys are taking something unbelievable. When they say they haven’t taken anything, you know that it’s phony.

Many people are now asking themselves questions concerning Arnold’s use of steroids. Did he really use them in moderation? What steroids did he take? Etc. It has been said over and over from people that say that he did in fact use steroids that he did not ever abuse them, there may have been a number of reasons for this, including the fact that at the time, using anabolic steroids for performance enhancing reasons concerning muscle growth and strength gains as well as being able to lose body fat more effectively was something that was fairly new back then. Arnold and the people who he was competing against may not have wanted to push it too much when it came to using steroids as they may not have been fully aware of what the outcome could be.
