Does smoking affect growth or strenght increases? I've been smoking for a couple of years now and it never crossed my mind. I smoke about half a pack to a whole pack a day. I work as a security guard so I get kind of bored. Thanx

Nicotine burns your energy,bro, so as any other drug. Did you see any bouncy pot-smokers or meth addicts? I smoked back in high school for about 3 years, quited and never regreted about it. I know the difference.

smoking is a bad thing. I smoked for 10 years. when I quit, is when I joined the gym. figured....if I'm gonna be healthy, I might as well work out too.... 😀

smoking does surpress your appetite, but it zaps energy and (as we all know) will do major harm in the long term. I can tell you, I have already done irrepairable harm to my lungs. no matter how hard I try, I cannot get anywhere near the lung capacity and endurance back that I had before smoking. it also stinks and is a dirty habit (just look at the butts laying around). you also intrude on others with the stench.

if you get bored at work, try chewing gum. I know it sounds dumb, but mostly it just gives you something to do. fiddle with things. spin a pencil between your fingers. anything that creates motion in your hand that will occupy your mind. I cant sit still and I found when I quit smoking, it was a lot worse. I'm always smacking gum, popping my knuckles, twitching my hands (because they're empty), playing with pens/pencils/remotes, whatever. smoking is also more of a subconscious habit than anything else. example, get in the truck, light a cigarette. not because I wanted one, that's just what you do. take that out and you are on your way to quiting.

good luck!

Dude,

I smoked two packs a day 4 17 years......I started when I was 13....I feel it defiantly inhibited my growth in more ways than one.....It probably affected my hormone levels and it defiantly impaired the development of my vascularity!

Training and smoking is total insanity.....u are placing your body under tremendous stress.....You are compromising your immune system by forcing it to deal with the constant repair of you entire vascular and lymphatic systems! That is why most people who smoke experience fatigue......

Quit smoking u are literally killing your self a cigarette at a time! Not to mention the punishment you are forcing upon your self by training simultaneously.....Give it up Dude it's now or never! It will be the toughest but most worth while thing u will ever do.......

If you are bored, read a BB or Powerlifting Mag, re-work your training routine, tweak your diet, plan future cycles, buy a kinesiology book or a biology book and read up and learn how your body works..... But DON'T Smoke!

I agree, GameBoy is the shit. I smoked for 15 years and when I quit 2 years ago, my workout got soooooooo much better in a matter of weeks, I was way more stronger. I used Zyban and Niccorette (The smoker stack) along with my GameBoy. Talk to your doc about it. Get him or her to to perscribe it as its generic name Wellbuterin. Its a lot cheaper as Wellbuterin is an anti depresent that HMO's will pay for, but if it is perscribed as Zyban then your insurance wont pay for it cuz the tobacco industry sais its not addictive - yea right.

just my .02 cents

I see where you are going, but they don't compare.

1. AAS are a means to an end. What goal do cigarettes help you reach?

2. AAS can improve your physique if moderation and proper use are employed. IF you are taking aas to improve yourself physically, why smoke? Are you saying smoking has some positive effect on building your physique.

3. Yes, abuse of AAS can be harmful, but we aren't talking about abuse.....

4. How is adding test (which is naturally occuring in your body) any comparison to adding TAR, FORMALDEHYDE, ANTI-FREEZE, etc. which are all found in cigarettes?
