Hello ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Vitamin E acts an an antioxidant to remove free radicals in our body and it helps reduce muscle cramps in general as well as smokers so a person can take it at any age.The second parts answer is yes the smoking and alcohol both have bad effect smoking lowers sperm count and even the quality and motility gets affected due to free radicals and alcohol reduces libido so it is better to avoid both.
Thanks
