One thing I’ve learned from growing up around criminals and illegal activity is that everything works out best when you keep your business to yourself and never ever admit to any illegal activity regardless of what it is.

I don't have a problem telling a trusted friend I use gear. Some of my friends have known for many years. If I don't trust you there's no reason you need to know. End if story. ..
None of my friends or family or even the wife knows I am on TRT or gear. I always maintained a lean 185 to 190 pound frame. When I met and married my wife I was shredded as well. I coach high school and college football and soccer or 37 years and all my players from the past, some made it to pro still think that's just the way I am because of my diet and being active on the field all the time. I suspect some might know, but since I am don't have that 240 plus pound frame like a typical bodybuilder they second guess themselves.
