Potency is just a single aspect of the male body affected by smoking. The global consumption of cigarettes is estimated at a crazy 17bn. ciggies annually. In such countries as Greece or Russia male population of smokers reaches 60-63%, female – 21 – 23%. Although sometimes it seems that almost everyone smokes at all, so these statistics may be different in a big way.
When smoking a major blow is delivered to our body.
For example, in Eastern Europe the habit takes lives of 7-10 million people annually.
The turnover of diseases treatment that are caused by smoking already exceed the $50 billion mark.
Are things that bad with smoking and potency?
The answer is obvious: definitely yes.
The effect is disastrous: cigarette smoke concentrates approximately 5,000 chemical compounds, 60 of which affect potency.
Here is just a bunch of quick examples: prussic acid, organic compounds, carbon monoxide, ammonia, and other toxic substances.
How smoking affects the potency?
Quite simply, the level of potency depends on the quality of blood circulation and saturation of genitals with oxygen. Tobacco leads to blood vessels narrowing, as a result genital body does not receive enough oxygen for normal potency. At first, the effect is unnoticable, the early signs of potency issues provoked by tobacco may occur in a few years. Usually the first symptoms (when at times the potency becomes not stable), you can still fix the situation – just quit smoking. However, if you continue to smoke, the symptoms will be intensified, almost inevitably leading to erectile dysfunction issues (at least smoking makes a major contribution).
Nicotine also has a negative effect on the endocrine glands, including the adrenal glands, which secrete adrenaline in the blood. Without it, the body hardly achieves sexual arousal.
Researchers claim that each pack of cigarettes smoked per day increases the chances of erectile dysfunction occurrence by 60%.
There is plenty of other evidence proving a negative effect of smoking on the potency: on average, those who smoke having sex 6-7 times a month less than non-smokers do; this value is almost twice as much. In another study the subjects were asked to evaluate how much they liked sex using a 10-point scale. The non-smoking couples’ average rating was 8.5, in pairs, where at least one person was smoker the rating was 5.1. Also, smokers live 14-16 years less than non-smokers (for men and women respectively).
Smoking history is also particularly important. If you start smoking at the age of 20, by 40 erectile dysfunction manifestations may reach its peak. Fortunately, if you quit smoking, the potency can be at least partially restored. It is also proved that if smokers refrain from ciggys 5-7 hours before sex the potency is much better – another proof that cigarettes affect the sexual power negatively.
