I am too addicted to cigarettes. I smoke 10-12 cigarettes daily. Plus sometimes I take cold drink with it. Did it make any sexual impact on me.

Every cigarette you smoke will affect your erectile capacity, and in the long run it can lead to impotence. The nicotine in tobacco smoke is a vasco-constrictor which means that it narrows the blood vessels and reduces the blood supply. The penis gets erect from the pressure of the blood that rushes to it when you get sexually aroused. But because of the poor blood flow, it can decrease in its capacity to remain rigid for sexual penetration. Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. You are well advised to quit immediately.
