What are the ill effects of smoking?

HI.

I recently took a cotinine test for a position. I have used smokeless tobacco (off and on) for a few years, but just a few times a month. The last time I used it was about 9-10 days ago. I have a pretty good metabolism weight 180 lbs. Do you think I will pass the test?>

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.
