Background: There have been doping usage as far back as as ancient Greece and around the early 1900s started the doping we have today. In 2008 it was 22,000 men aged 15-54 years old who had any kind of experience with doping in Sweden. The problem of doping use are all over the world and to overcome this problem, we need to work across borders.

Objectives: The purpose of this study is to investigate whether there is any connection between the use of supplements and attitude to doping. The study is based on the questions: is there any connection between the use of supplements and positive attitude to doping? is there any connection between the use of supplements/doping substances and high training frequency? and is there different use of supplement/doping substances between girls and boys?

Method: A survey in form of a cross-sectional study and a waiting room survey was conducted with 63 respondents of whom 57,1% were women. Mean age was 24 years. All respondents is studying at Karlstads University.

Results: The results of this study shows that unlike previous research, there is no significant difference between the use of supplements and attitude to doping. Neither use of supplements and exercise frequency was incurred any sigificant difference. However there is a significant difference between the use of supplements and girls and boys. The study showed that boys are more likely to use creatine and protein than girls.
