We are all different people, hence we all see use of steroid differently, this is how I percieve it..
Marc & Anthony are both soldiers. Anthony is a better fighter, huge, fast and strong. Marc is very good too but don't stand tall at Anthony's side. When going to war, Marc is full heart in fighting and putting is life at risk like there was no tomorrow. Meanwhile, Anthony on the other hand hide is huge carapace behind a tree making sure nobody sees him. When returning to camp after battle, both recieve kudos for their work and courage on the field. Anthony, without a scare, make up story of how hard it was to become the warrior he is today. Marc would love to do like Anthony but he knows too well nobody would listen to him. Marc knows that at the end he will always be under Anthony even though he could change it all by playing the game like him.
When I think of myself taking steroid, other than the good I also feel like I'd lose something precious belonging to me, the warrior in me. Making the choice of taking or not taking steroid would put me in either's shoes. I think what is most important is to consider what is most valuable to you, be an hero to yourself or to others? Once you've evaluated this, the decision become clearer.
