I just read this article, http://johannhari.com/2008/05/06/my-experiment-with-smart-drugs/
Obviously I thought "I wonder if that could make me focus on skiing better?" focus, I find is often my problem you see, I can ski much better on rare occasions where things just work in my head, I know I'm physically capable of being a better skier there is a solid theory there that drugs like this could make a skier like me much better. So I continued in my head "i could try it and film a wee edit or something" "Would that be cheating? yeh. na, you can't cheat who drug tests your fucking edit. who needs to though? you know you cheated."
I decided I couldn't film an edit on a drug like this if it worked how i imagined it could. I'm probably never going to take it at all. I'm never going to take steroids either but what if i did? would it be unethical? Do you think it would actually be cheating, seeing as I don't ski comps? How would you feel if you found out skiers we watch in edits take drugs to help them ski better - either by enhancing their mental or physical ability?
This article has got me thinking.
