'I LOST MYSELF': Armstrong Started Doping About 20 Years Ago
Cyclist Lance Armstrong admitted directly in his interview with Oprah Winfrey to using a variety of performance enhancing substances, a record that he said started sometime in the "mid-90s."
"Yes," Armstrong said when Winfrey asked if he used a series of drugs to help his record run.
"I made my decisions. They are my mistake," Armstrong said.
Sitting in a chair across from Winfrey, Armstrong said he could not have won the race seven times without the drugs and gave a small smile.
"I lost myself in all that," Armstrong said.
