We are all well aware of the dark side of smoking. But did you know that smoking can even decrease your penis size? It’s true: studies suggest that men who smoke are more likely to have smaller penises than non-smokers. Why is this? Well, a lot of reasons! The main one being that smoking within the lungs decreases their blood flow (which also means less blood flowing to your penis!) Another reason is that nicotine is an incredible vasoconstrictor, which inhibits blood vessels from expanding as much as they normally would during sex. And if there’s limited room for blood flow in your body, then how can there be any room left for an erection?
What is the average penis size
According to a study in BJU International: The average length of a flaccid penis is 9.16 cm, and the average length of an erect penis is 13.12 cm. Many factors can affect how big your penis is, including genetics and hormone levels.
Smoking not only kills, but it can also reduce your penis size.
If you didn't know, smoking cigarettes is terrible for your health. But there's more: Smoking not only kills you, but it can reduce your penis size as well. We know, we know—it's not the news you were hoping to hear today. But preliminary findings of a study of 200 male volunteers by researchers from the Boston University School of Medicine show men who smoked were likely to have a shorter erect penis than those who did not smoke. The researchers believe this is because smoking harms blood flow, which can cause erectile dysfunction and shrinkage.
So why does smoking affect penis size? When you smoke, it's not just your lungs and heart that pay the price; your penis also suffers. Smoking damages blood vessels and reduces blood flow throughout your body. This means that less oxygen reaches all of your organs, including your penis—which makes it smaller than usual.
Smoking is terrible for your health, and so are the effects of cigarette smoke on your penis:
Smoking increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. It also increases the risk for example lung cancer and mouth cancer. Smoking can cause erectile dysfunction or impotence as well.
Smokers have a lower sperm count than nonsmokers. Studies suggest that smokers tend to have shorter life spans due to increased mortality from tobacco-related cancers (e.g., lung cancer) or heart disease. Overall mortality among both male and female smokers in the United States is about three times higher than that among similar people who never smoked. Men who smoke appear more likely to be infertile than nonsmokers as well.
How to stop smoking
How can you quit smoking?
If you want to stop smoking cold turkey, it may not be the best idea. Nicotine is a highly addictive drug that triggers the release of dopamine and other neurotransmitters in your brain. As a result, when we stop using nicotine after a long period of time (like years), we can experience withdrawal symptoms such as cravings, headaches and irritability.
Nicotine replacement therapy is used by many smokers who want an alternative way to get their nicotine fix without inhaling harmful cigarette smoke into their lungs. Unfortunately for men who are looking for ways to increase penis size with this method, it does not work—and there's no proof that it will help reverse the damage done by years of smoking either!
Talk with your doctor about other options such as patches or gum if you're still having trouble kicking your habit after several attempts at quitting cold turkey or NRT methods like lozenges or sprays don't seem effective enough on their own at keeping cravings away long enough before they come back again later down within 24 hours
So there you have it. Smoking can decrease your penis size, along with many other health issues. If you are a smoker and have been thinking about quitting, we hope this has inspired you to make the change today!
