hello socialbeing0...
welcome to health care magic...
first of all let me tell you that any kind of smoking or use of nicotine in any form can give rise to problem with erection... so its my sincere advice that kindly quit smoking...
use of cigarettes with clove or mouth freshners with menthol for longer duration can give rise to erection difficulty & research has found that..
smoking can cause permanent damage not only in sexual functioning but also leads to heart problem, stroke, lung cancer, COPD etc... so its better to Quit completely...
anti ED drugs might be helpful but they should be taken under medical supervision because they have there own side effects.
so have a healthy lifestyle ahead... take care...
