The effect of smoking on potency in men

In today's world it is quite problematic to find a man without any bad habits. Although a healthy lifestyle is a guarantee of health and longevity. Every third young person smokes. Almost everyone is sure that cigarettes are not so harmful. In addition to harming the condition of the whole organism, male potency is also under attack. Every smoker sooner or later develops erectile dysfunction. The harmful effects of smoking on potency are undeniable.

Harmful composition of cigarettes

Many smokers are accustomed to believing that the most harmful thing in cigarettes is nicotine alone. All other substances, smoke, have no effect on the body. I would like to understand this question in more detail. Every component that is part of cigarettes damages a man's body, his strength. And nicotine, compared to other components, is just a harmless substance.

All toxic chemicals turn into volatile elements along with smoke, which are deposited in the lungs not only of smokers but also of others. That is why they say that passive smokers suffer equally with everyone. Scientists have found that a cigarette contains up to 5, 000 such toxic elements. Most of them lead to the destruction of many organs and systems.

Many smokers believe that the cigarette filter will act as a barrier to the entry of chemicals into the body. It is worth dispelling this myth. The filter retains only 30-40% of all harmful substances. In addition, when inhaling smoke, the body suffers no less. So in the composition of many cigarettes you can find the following components:

  • cadmium;
  • Hydrocyanic acid;
  • Water;
  • benzene;
  • arsenic;
  • acetaldehyde;
  • methane;
  • nitrobenzene;
  • phenol;
  • Radioactive substances;
  • Carbon monoxide;
  • Formaldehyde.

What we breathe when we smoke someone is nicotine. It is considered a type of soft drug. With a small dose of it a person feels agitation, surge of energy, lifting, slight dizziness. This effect disappears quickly enough. This encourages you to reach for your cigarette over and over again. Just 3 weeks of regular cigarette smoking is enough to get addicted to this addiction. Nicotine doses should be increased. This has a detrimental effect on the cardiovascular system, potency, hormones and the nervous system.

Cadmium is a heavy metal that is deposited and accumulates in the kidneys. Kidney poisoning occurs. Also, this leads to excessive brittleness of the bones, washing away calcium from them. Lead is a particularly dangerous metal. Accumulates in absolutely all body systems. It penetrates deep into tissues and cells. It spreads with blood absolutely everywhere.

Methane is a poisonous gas. It often causes dizziness, nausea and vomiting. When a small dose of methane is consumed with a cigarette, the side effects will be almost invisible. But the element has a cumulative property. Phenol irritates the mucous membranes. It is because of him that experienced smokers are diagnosed with cancer of the throat, trachea, esophagus. These are not all the harmful components of cigarettes that kill the human body. Therefore, before reaching for a cigarette, you need to think more than once about the terrible consequences.

Today you can find a large number of so-called "light" cigarettes. It is worth remembering that the composition of such cigarettes is the same as that of conventional ones. Therefore, they will not be able to save you from disease. Their difference is only in the amount of harmful chemicals. There is a little less in a thin cigarette. But the whole spectrum of poisons is presented. So the harmful effects of cigarettes on male potency and the body as a whole are only a matter of time.

Cigarettes and male potency

Does smoking affect potency? It is safe to say yes. And not in the best way. Nicotine enters the blood vessels very quickly, allowing it to spread throughout the body. The substance also enters the bloodstream of the genitourinary system. So under the influence of cigarettes, the activity of sperm decreases immediately. And in general, the number of living people is falling sharply. Potency problems occur even at the level of spermatogenesis. Cigarettes can completely change the structure of the nascent sperm.

It has long been proven that the activity of sperm in smokers is several times lower than that of a healthy man. Therefore, in the treatment of such pathology, the first condition is the complete cessation of a man's cigarettes. It has been found that the more a young man smokes cigarettes during the day, the lower his potency. Erectile dysfunction begins to develop very quickly. Smoking one pack of cigarettes a day increases the chances of complete impotence by 65%.

Nicotine, which is contained in all cigarettes, has a detrimental effect on the adrenal glands. They contribute to the release of adrenaline. Adrenaline is needed to increase blood pressure and heart rate. With a small dose of adrenaline, blood circulation does not increase. The flow of blood to the penis is simply impossible. Erection becomes too weak or does not come at all. That is why cigarettes lead to many potency problems.

The effect of smoking on potency is also explained by the presence of carbon dioxide in cigarettes. It affects the walls of blood vessels, which provokes problems with potency. Prolonged smoking of cigarettes causes the body to lack oxygen. Oxygen starvation of the genitals develops. The vessels become thinner, which leads to their rapid clogging. The flow of blood to the corpora cavernosa of the penis becomes simply impossible. Efficacy deteriorates sharply in the form of loss of erection on stimulation.

Cigarette smoking reduces the production of sex hormones. Low testosterone levels in men are the main cause of poor potency. In general, against the background of cigarette smoking there are such problems with potency:

  • Male infertility;
  • Weak erection;
  • Lack of erection;
  • Poor pelvic circulation;
  • Decreased sexual desire.

Numerous studies have shown the effects of cigarettes on potency. So, when both partners smoke, the number of sexual acts is significantly lower than in a non-smoking family. Also, the level of pleasure from sexual intercourse when smoking cigarettes is significantly reduced. The orgasm ceases to be bright, sometimes it does not come at all.

Increasing potency is possible only with complete cessation of smoking. But it is worth noting that there will be no immediate result. Long-term use of cigarettes has already caused irreparable damage not only to potency, but also to all organs of the male body. You may notice positive changes in potency for another six months after quitting. Of course, one must not only say goodbye to a bad habit, but also completely change one's lifestyle. Healthy eating, sports activities will accelerate the process of restoring potency. Specialists often prescribe additional drugs to improve erectile function.
