Kick the butt for a better sex life

Lifestyle News, June 3:- A recent study suggests that for men, kicking the smoking habit can be beneficial not only for heart and lung health, but also for the sexual performance.

Tobacco is a major cause of damage to the blood vessels that flow to the penis, said J Patrick Selph from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. If the blood vessels to the penis are damaged, erectile dysfunction may result. Tobacco is also a major cause of cardiovascular disease, and in some cases where the heart or its blood vessels are damaged, a man may be too unhealthy to engage in intercourse, he added.

Studies have shown that smokers are at a higher risk of having a reduced sperm count and lower sperm motility, affecting male fertility. Side effects are worse in moderate or heavy smokers.

In addition to the overall issues with tobacco, chewing tobacco poses a risk for throat and next cancer, as well as many dental problems.

 

A few additional tips to quit smoking:

– If you are not motivated to quit, you probably will not succeed.

-Set a stop date.

– Get rid of equipments lying around the house such as ashtrays, lighters and cigarettes.

– Avoid stopping at the store where you typically purchased your tobacco products.

– Don’t be afraid to lean on a family member or friend.

– Kick the habit with a friend who is ready to quit also.

– Find a support group.

– Use nicotine replacement products.
