The effect of smoking on potency in men

In the modern world, it is quite problematic to find a man without bad habits. Even if a healthy lifestyle is a guarantee of health and longevity. One in three young people smoke. Almost everyone is convinced that cigarettes are not that bad. 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 effect of smoking on potency is undeniable.

Harmful composition of cigarettes

Many smokers have the habit of believing that the most harmful thing in cigarettes is nicotine. All other substances, smoke, have no effect on the body. I would like to understand this problem in more detail. Every component that is part of cigarettes damages a man's body, his potency. And nicotine, in comparison with other components, is only a harmless substance.

All toxic chemicals are converted into volatile elements with the smoke, which are deposited in the lungs not only of smokers, but also of those around them. This is why they say that passive smokers suffer on an equal basis with everyone else. Scientists have discovered that there are as many as 5, 000 of these toxic elements in a cigarette. 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 chemicals entering the body. It is worth dispelling this myth. The filter retains only 30-40% of all harmful substances. In addition, when the smoke is inhaled, the body does not suffer any less. So, in the composition of many cigarettes you can find the following components:

  • Cadmium;
  • Hydrocyanic acid;
  • Lead;
  • Benzene;
  • Arsenic;
  • acetaldehyde;
  • Methane;
  • Nitrobenzene;
  • Phenol;
  • Radioactive substances;
  • Carbon monoxide;
  • Formaldehyde.

What we breathe when we smoke someone is nicotine. It is considered to be a kind of soft drug. With a small dose, a person feels restlessness, surge of energy, elevation, slight dizziness. This effect wears off quite quickly. This encourages you to search for your cigarette over and over again. It only takes 3 weeks of regular smoking to become addicted to this addiction. Nicotine doses should be increased. It has a detrimental effect on the cardiovascular system, potency, hormones, and the nervous system.

Cadmium is a heavy metal that is deposited and accumulated in the kidneys. Kidney poisoning occurs. In addition, it leads to excessive brittleness of the bones, removing them from calcium. Lead is a particularly dangerous metal. It accumulates in absolutely all systems of the body. Penetrates deep into tissues and cells. Spread in 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 imperceptible. 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. Not all of the harmful components in cigarettes kill the human body. Therefore, before you take a cigarette, you need to think about the dire consequences more than once.

Today you can find a large number of so-called "light" cigarettes. It should be remembered that the composition of such cigarettes is the same as that of conventional cigarettes. Hence, they will not be able to save you from illnesses. Their difference lies only in the amount of harmful chemical constituents. There is a little less of it in a thin cigarette. But the whole spectrum of poisons is presented. So, the harmful effect of smoking on male potency and on the body as a whole is only a matter of time.

Cigarettes and male potency

Does smoking affect potency? It's safe to say yes. And not in the best possible 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 smoking, the activity of sperm immediately decreases. And the number of people alive in general is dropping sharply. Potency problems arise 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 a pathology, the first condition is the complete refusal of a man to smoke. It has been established that the longer a young man smokes cigarettes during the day, the more his potency decreases. Erectile dysfunction begins to develop very quickly. Smoking a pack of cigarettes a day increases the chances of being completely impotent by 65%.

Nicotine, present 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 increase the heart rate. With a small dose of adrenaline, blood circulation does not increase. Blood flow to the penis is simply impossible. The erection becomes too weak, or does not come at all. This is why cigarettes lead to multiple potency issues.

The effect of smoking on potency is also explained by the presence of carbon dioxide in the composition of cigarettes. It affects the walls of the blood vessels, which causes problems with potency. With prolonged consumption of cigarettes, the body lacks oxygen. Oxygen deprivation of the genitals develops. The vessels become thinner, which leads to their rapid blockage. The flow of blood to the cavernous bodies of the penis simply becomes impossible. Potency deteriorates sharply in the form of loss of erection upon stimulation.

Smoking cigarettes leads to a decrease in the production of sex hormones. Low testosterone levels in men are the main cause of low potency. In general, against the background of cigarette consumption, there are such problems with potency:

  • Male infertility;
  • Weak erection;
  • Lack of erection;
  • Poor circulation in the pelvic area;
  • Decreased libido.

Many studies have been conducted which show the effect of cigarettes on potency. Thus, when both partners smoke, the number of sexual acts is significantly lower than that of a non-smoking family. In addition, the level of pleasure of sexual intercourse when consuming cigarettes is significantly reduced. Orgasm stops being bright, sometimes it doesn't come at all.

It is only possible to increase the potency if you stop smoking completely. But, it should be noted that there will be no immediate result. Long-term use of cigarettes has already caused irreparable damage not only to potency, but to all organs of the male body. You may notice positive changes in potency already six months after quitting. Of course, a man needs not only to say goodbye to a bad habit, but also to completely change his lifestyle. Healthy eating, sports activities will speed up the process of restoring potency. Specialists often prescribe the additional use of drugs to improve erectile function.
