    Hi there and thanks for your question. Unfortunately, yes - we can say that people become addicted to steroids because they continue to use despite negative consequences. The high of steroids is not the euphoria that it is with other drugs - it is more about achieving the desired outcome. I encourage you to reach out to your primary care physician and discuss your concerns. I would predict that your recovery process would be relatively pain free in terms of withdrawals, but it's always best to err on the side of caution and ensure that we do things in the safest way possible. Good luck to you!
