After mixing steroids with alcohol, there are some temporary risks associated.
The type of steroid will determine how long you can’t drink alcohol. The time will vary depending on the steroid used and how much was taken. For example, some short-estered anabolic steroids may only require a day or two to pass before drinking again, while longer estered forms might be out of your system for up to four weeks. For all the information on how long after using steroids you should abstain from alcohol, keep reading!
How does alcohol affect my body?
Alcohol is toxic to your liver and not suitable for daily consumption. In addition, medical experts don’t recommend consuming more than one glass of red wine per day because of adverse side effects. For example, the likelihood of developing certain types of cancer is increased by drinking alcohol, including esophageal, liver, and breast cancers. Alcohol also leads to obesity which can cause several other health problems.
How do I know when I’m safe to drink again? After taking anabolic steroids, you’ll need to wait until your body has wholly flushed the drugs out. This will take about a week for most people, but for some, it may take two weeks or even longer, depending on how much was taken. If you want to be 100% safe, then abstain from alcohol for at least one month after usage, regardless of whether it’s oral or injectable steroids that were used. Required waiting time after certain steroids are listed below: Oral Steroids: One week after use.
Injectable Steroids: One to three weeks after use.
What type of steroids should I take if I want to drink again?
One cycle is always the best choice if you’re looking for a steroid cycle that won’t interfere with alcohol. As mentioned before, the total time varies depending on how long the ester is attached to the steroid compound, but here are some short estered options that might be right for you: Oral Steroids: Winstrol (Stanozolol) – 4-6 days PCT required.
Injectable Steroids: Testosterone Propionate – 3-4 days PCT required. Remember, even though these compounds will only need between 1-3 weeks of PCT, you should still avoid drinking alcohol until the necessary time has passed.
The best action is to avoid using steroids if you consume alcohol and always follow safe practices with all performance enhancers. There are no benefits from mixing steroids and alcohol, so it’s not worth increasing your health risks even further by adding liver toxicity to the mix. If, for some reason, you absolutely must drink after taking anabolic steroids, then please do so responsibly!
