I was reading a medical encyclopedia from the 1960’s and in the section on pregnancy, it stated that pregnant women should limit their smoking to 10 cigarettes a day. At that same time, it was thought that smoking MAY be hazardous to one’s health. Ridiculous… isn’t it?
Researchers are finding things out all the time about the effects of smoking. Cigarettes are one of the most dangerous vices we have as people. I know of one person who died in her 30’s and I know of others that lived a long life. This tells me personally that while cigarettes are dangerous, the extent of damage that they cause may be largely based on a person’s genetic makeup.
Now, with all that being said, if you ask anybody, they’ll tell you that ONE cigarette is just too much.

Problem: Erectile Dysfunction. I am 46-years old and on my 12th week of a smoking cessation program. I took Chantix the first two weeks and have been using Nicorette Lozenges on an as needed basis since. My wife also started the program with me, and both of us had been smokers for approximately 30-years. During the first four weeks, sex was no problem, and hadn't been a problem prior to quitting the cigarettes. Starting around the fifth week and up till now I can no longer maintain an erection during intercourse. The good news is that I still wake up with a pretty good erection sometimes but morning usually isn't the greatest time to wake the wife up for a romp in the hay. Everything I've read about ED and smoking runs contrary to what I am experiencing now. Could it be the Nicorrette? Why am I going through this and what can I do about it? Is it normal for someone to experience ED after they have quit smoking and how long does it last?
I am a 6 foot, 165 pound, 26 year old male. I have been a smoker for 8 years. 8 days ago I started using the nicotine patch and since then I have had trouble sustaining an erection. I stopped using the nicotine patch yesterday and decided to quit cold turkey but I am still having trouble sustaining a erection during sex. I never had trouble with this when I was a smoker.
I am on the last step of nicotine patches to quite smoking, and the last 5 days I have been experience a dull-moderate ache in my back (kidney area). I have increased my water intake the past 3 days thinking I was maybe dehydrated, but the ache has only gotten worse. Could this pain be due to the nicotine patches?
