Lance Armstrong, Disgraced, Admits To Using Performance Enhancing Drugs

Written by DeShawn McQueen on Tuesday, 15 January 2013. Posted in Celebrities, Breaking News

Lance Armstrong

Perhaps we all knew it, but late as it may seem, it is official, Lance Armstrong finally admitted to consuming performance enhancing drugs/substances to gain a competitive edge.

Armstrong previously was the winner of a record seven Tour De France titles. In 2012, all of his titles were disqualified for initial suspicion then factual confirmation that Armstrong had in fact consumed performance enhancing drugs/substances.

Yesterday, in a sit down interview with none other the queen of talk, Oprah Winfrey, for her Oprah Winfrey Network ("OWN"), Lance Armstrong sat down to admit to and discuss the nature and details regarding his performance enhancing drug consumption.

The two and a half hour interview is expected to air over two days this week, Thursday, January 17 and Friday, January 18, 9pm. I am certain that this interview will take the OWN ratings through the roof, as they have had some ratings issues.

I wonder if he ever got high from using those performance enhancing drugs/substances?!

What do you guys think about Lance Armstrong's behavior and lack of integrity with regard to using performance enhancing drugs all those years and then subsequently lying for so long?

Do any of you think Lance should be classified as an addict?

Does anyone know if performance enhancing substances/drugs affects an individual from the "neck up"?

If you or anyone that you love is struggling with drug addiction or alcoholism, please call or text us. We want to help you.
