Smoking - 7 Effects On Sexual Health

Smoking in general, has a negative effect on the human body. It can cause a host of disorders such as mouth cancerblood pressure problems, and lung cancer. Smoking affects the sexual performance of both men and women.

Here are some effects that smoking has on sex :-
1. ImpotenceSmoking can damage the blood vessels that lead to erectile dysfunction (a condition where the penis cannot sustain an erection).
2. Decrease in libido: Smoking can cause various physical problems such as stamina reduction and lack of desire for sex. An individual who smokes won't be able to give an optimal sexual performance and this can further lower satisfaction levels.
3. Erectile dysfunction: Smoking can cause problems related to the circulation of the blood in the body. It can narrow the arteries that supply blood and this is directly linked with erectile dysfunction.
4. Tissue damage: Smoking can damage the tissues inside the penis thus impairing your ability to have an erection during sexual intercourse.
5. Early onset of menopause: It can affect the estrogen (a sex hormone) levels in the female body; so, women who smoke tend to reach menopause early.
6. Reduction in penis size: It can reduce the penis size in men by damaging the blood vessels and the structure of the tissue around the penis. This is more common in younger men.
7. Reduction in stamina: Smoking can cause a reduction in the stamina, thus a person will not be able to perform well sexually. It can lead to fatigue and tiredness during sex.

Of course, there are a lot of therapies which can help you recover from the damage already happened because of smoking and prevent further damage. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Anxiety and stomach flatulence ,hard breathing most of the times,alcohol and smoking in evenings .

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
It looks like you might be suffering from anxiety disorder that would explain the stomach problems ( ibs) and difficulty in breathing. May be that is why you need alcohol to calm your self. However you need to describe your shortness of breath in detail, as it could suggest some serious heart condition because of your drinking habit.

Hi lybrate-user, First, you should stop over thinking. One famous proverb you should remember when you over think that is "too much of anything is good for nothing" it will damage you completely that is mind and body. Each and every individual differ from one to one, so this negative thoughts and depression is almost present among 50% of the population, there is nothing wrong, bcoz the world is like that nowadays, it depends or it all matters like how we preceive or how we take it deeply. So you should learn to ignore these thoughts and learn to divert at a second to a different activity or mind. If you need further assistance feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me. You can come in for an online consultation so that I could help you better. Take care. Do not worry. Be cool. With regards,

Do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.

I am 29 year working women. Due to family disturbance I suffered 3 anxiety attacks. What should I do?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Due to smoking unable get in sex. Any treatment and exercise. I want to quick smoking. Tried due to circumstances still on. We need kid pls help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course your sex life will be effected if you continue to smoke. So quitting and immediately and promptly is the best advice I can give you. You must do a lot of exercises: one of which is called kegel and you can find more if you google this name. There are too many harmful effects because of smoking. But here are a few to ruminate up on with the intention of either making you stop or to never start again. It has more than 7000 chemical substances most of which are harmful. It affects your stamina, breathing, forms skin wrinkles; Bad for your heart, bad for bad cholesterol, it can lead to strokes, dental problems, eye problems, cancer, brain cell death, vascular problems, throat problems, voice difficulties, etc. The list is quite endless. It is so bad that there is an international battle to dissuade smoking. Each cigarette you smoke has an effect on your erectile capacity: the nicotine in the cigarette is a vasoconstrictor i.e. it narrows the blood vessels to constrict the blood flow. The erection of the penis is caused by an extra flow of blood to the penis along with a shut down valve that facilitates its engorgement. This action will be compromised. Your BP rises with every cigarette you smoke. But to me the biggest danger is that, in time, dependence and tolerance will develop so that you will want more cigarettes in order to have the same effect as when you started smoking with only one or two. Now, the bluff that we all went through when we were teens was this belief (really a denial) that, if we want, we can stop at any time we choose. That unfortunately does not work: it is a deceptive bluff. The fortunate thing about giving up smoking is that you can reverse most of the damage by giving up at any time: the sooner the better, however.You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Please note if any physiological illness is ruled out, suggest to meet a qualified psychologist who can assess through standardized psychological testing and interviewing if your wife is meeting criteria of depression or not. In case testing and interviewing shows depression - then psychiatric medicine for depression would help. In case no - then this problem is best solved by taking services of a clinical hypnotherapist. It is based on guided relaxation to help client master in coping with problems and can also accelerate the healing process in many physiological problems. Hypnotherapy is one of the safest, quickest and most effective forms of treatment for the majority of psychological and emotional problems.

Seven years it is not big difference. It is her feeling he is not giving proper sex husband feels he satisfy her personal needs. He feels it is his responsibility. But wife thinking about sex. Some stage men cannot share everything he has so much of responsibilities. He thinks about primary things but wife thinks secondary things. Caring like a lover it is not possible for anyone. She can understand his side. Better to make friendliness with him. Ask directly what she needs. He will do what is the requirement. Do not think unnecessary things like sex it plays small role in family life. Sex interest comes with the help of her. He will love and care to his wife. When she shares each and everything with him. Better to understand my view. Ok.

I have lot of pressure from home front. My wife's habit to follow all types of religious stuffs i.E. Vast, astrology, normal baba, ramdev baba. 24 hrs we use to have same discussion on rahu, ketu shukr man gal. I have no intention to stop her but there has to be limit for all these things. When there is no positive responses on discussion on these topics from my side the chapter from Mahabharat starts at home. Really fed up.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
If you don't respond positively, then how do you respond to her? She can pursue any interest of her choice. And so can you. You just need to talk to her assertively that her hobby is not something that you understand, so cannot participate in discussions. Find some legitimate excuse to move out of that situation, but don't forget to show and tell her that she's still a likeable person and you enjoy her company. Offer other activities that you both can do together. In Mahabharata, 2 people are needed to fight. If you don't fight then she will have to back of. Remember Gandhiji and talk sweetly and firmly with your wife. Soon she will leave you to do your own things in peace. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Smoking addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

MR can be better treated with behaviour therapy and skills training. Please go out with him, reward him for spending some time in another room without you then encourage him going momentarily out of house to bring something. then promote him to talk with some one known just outside the gate for sometime, then promote him to open door for in comers, help him to socialise with peer group and reward him suitably for his social behaviour.

Hi lybrate-user, we all are different from each other. After being in a relation for long period years its usually seen love takes a background and the priorities change, which ofcourse should not be the case, because the essence is love. Don't worry I am sure she equally in love with you, just that bit caught up in other issues. May be you can confront her- have an open heart talk, tell her your expectations remind her of those expectations time and again. Put in efforts to relive those moments that were exciting at the start of your relationship. Express to her that you feel hurt and also learn to adjust. Introspect about your expectations and if you feel its little too much you can lower it. Try to talk to a expert psychologist and gain insight and guidance. All the very best.
