Well, in the case of competitive bodybuilding, drugs definitely have a place. In the most extreme of competitive bodybuilding, such as gunning for the Mr. Philippines title, entails risks. Sadly, many competitors will risk their health just to look their best on stage, and this happens for only a few hours!
In the Philippines, there are no legitimate natural federations. I know a competitive natural bodybuilder and can see how much longer and harder he diets and prepares than an assisted one. The assisted one will always appear fuller, bigger, leaner than the natural bodybuilder, ceteris paribus.
We have to put distinctions here. I'm limiting my discussion to pure bodybuilders. There are a lot of variables here: genetics, training, nutrition, rest, supplements and drugs. For instance, a bodybuilder's receptors' response to anabolic steroids can play a major role.
"Competitive bodybuilding" per se means looking your best - optimum combination of size, symmetry and most of all conditioning - at a single point in time. Off stage, such bodybuilders could care less about how they look (Of course, it's HIGHLY improbable since bodybuilders are conscious of how they look 24/7). This is the reason why many guys can't take it psychologically to be a mere fraction of what they are when "on"; hence, really long and never-ending cycles!

There is no need to take steroids if you have proper training, rest, etc. Competing steroid users are insecure drug-cheats. I have no comment for those who dont compete but take steroids for aesthetics purposes. Check out this article I made that is posted on the website of the Powerlifting Association of the Philippines:http://www.pap1982.com/Recent/What%20steroids/What_steroids.htm
