  • Snus and erectile dysfunction

    Hi, I'm thinking of quitting snus because I've read several studies that confirm that nicotine reduces blood flow and therefore causes ED and impotence. It's frustrating because this is the ONLY reason I would ever want to quit, there's no other side effect that would make me want to quit. It would be much better if I had several reasons, but this is the only thing that made me even think of quitting.

    Anyway, what are you guys' take on this? Does anyone know how much of an effect snus has on sexual performance? Most studies are done on cigs, but according to several places snus should have the same affects because it's still nicotine.

    Something I have thought about is the fact that if snus has the same affect as cigs do then wouldn't Sweden have an ED epidemic? Over 10% of men use snus and 5-10% of men smoke, this means that we would have a very large amount of impotent men, right?

    Is it really worth quitting for this? Whenever I put one in the thought of killing my penis always goes through my head.

    Regards.

    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I killed because they were annoying......


    I've been wrong lots of times. Lots of times I've thought I was wrong only to find out that I was right in the beginning.

      Yes, I've read that thread, but there is no discussions of scientific studies and it was also 7 years ago.

        Here is a scientific study

        unless you have an actual problem with the ol tackle box.......don't go hunting for one.

        I know this seems a bit snide.........but sometimes i think we tend to over complicate things
        When it's my time to go, I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my uncle did....... Not screaming in terror like his passengers

                  My question for you would be what other circumstances, if any, exist in your life that might also contribute to ED? Weight, activity, nutrition, & certain medications can contribute as well. If you are obese, sedentary, and eat poorly, among other things, that can contribute significantly to ED. IMO significantly more than snus. Instead of looking at one thing, look at the whole picture. If you are within 20 lbs of your ideal weight, stay active and walk and/or exercise daily or a couple times a week and you eat pretty well, you have no reason to think that your snus is going to "kill your penis". Nicotine is probably the smallest contributor to ED of those things listed. So if you're healthy in other ways, don't worry about it. If you aren't healthy in those other ways, work on the other things if you have no other reason to want to quit snus, because they are likely contributing more so than nicotine.

                        I can confirm for me that snus or any form of tobacco Definitly lessens my sex drive. When ever I lay off tobbacco my urge to make sweet love rivals that of my teen years. I can still get plenty hard, and I still want to have sex....but snus definitely makes it a lesser priority.

                          No smoking (or Snus), no beer/ale, no booze, no drugs. Any of these can interrupt blood flow to your penis resulting in diminished libido & cause (ED) erectile dysfunction or impotency.
