It seems a product called Meldonium has been used by some very well known sports stars and consequently they have now either failed drug tests or are having to own up to having consumed it one way or another. I don't know what it is and don't need to know, but it makes me wonder why sports stars need to risk everything for what appears to be an illegal substance for those involved. What happened to the results of hard work, hard training. I wonder do the few create a bad name for the majority?
I have never taken drugs that weren't prescribed by the NHS (and the effects of some of those are of concern) and wouldn't know what to do with them if I was handed them on a plate. Chew them, swallow them in a drink, sniff them up your nose as seems normal, inject them....why?
The kids of today have a better life than ever before yet they abuse it (well some of them anyway) so what is the matter with them, what have we created?
Any opinions POE members, have you ever tried drugs, what happened to you?
