>Smoking men had significantly higher levels of total and free testosterone compared with men who never smoked (p < 0.001 and <0.01 respectively). Both total and free testosterone levels increased significantly with increasing number of cigarettes smoked daily (p < 0.001). Smoking men had 15% higher total and 13% higher free testosterone levels compared with men who never smoked.
Cigarettes are proven to significantly increase your testosterone levels. Why haven't you started tobaccomaxxing yet, IST?
ciggies and test

"Evidence was also found supporting the beneficial effect of smoking cessation on the restoration of erectile function. We noted marked heterogeneity in patient populations and smoking categorizations across studies, precluding conduct of a meta-analysis. Considerable evidence exists to support the hypothesis/theory that smoking-related ED is mainly associated with endothelial impairment, reduction in nitric oxide availability, and imbalance between oxidative and antioxidative reactions increasing oxidative stress."
"Exposure to cigarette smoking was associated with reduced sperm count (mean difference [MD]: -9.72×106/ml; 95% confidence interval [CI], -13.32 to -6.12), motility (MD: -3.48%; 95% CI, -5.53 to -1.44), and morphology (MD: -1.37%; 95% CI, -2.63 to -0.11). Subgroup analyses indicated that effect size was higher in infertile men than in the general population and in moderate/heavy smokers than in mild smokers."
Enjoy pushing rope and shooting blanks, Marlboro fag.
Doesn't necessarily imply smoking is causative. More likely that people with higher test are more likely to smoke and less likely to care about the consequences
If you're assuming that the effect is because higher testosterone men are predisposed to smoking, then why does the level of measured testosterone "increase significantly with increasing number of cigarettes smoked daily"? You could say men smoke more cigarettes at a rate proportional to their already higher testosterone levels, but do you think this correlation would really be strong enough to have a p-value of less than 0.001? This seems to strongly point to a causative link between the number of cigarettes smoked and testosterone level.
I'M NOT GONNA SMOKE THE CIGARETTES I'M NOT GONNA DO IT FUCK OFF TOBACCO garden gnome SHILL have a nice day I HATE THE ANTICHRIST I HATE THE ANTICHRIST I HATE THE ANTICHRIST I HATE THE ANTICHRIST I HATE THE ANTICHRIST
Although the findings seem interesting, to believe that smoking will make you have more testosterone because of a singular study is misguided. You also wouldn't just stop eating eggs or beef because some studies said they're bad for you.
As long as you can't explain the mechanism behind it well I wouldn't trust it.
You do not understand how p values work. The explanation that they smoke more proportional to their existing levels of T is completely possible with such a low p value. You also ignore the possibility that people who smoke cigarettes also engage in other behavior that otherwise increase their test. Perhaps the more they engage in these behaviors, the more cigarettes they smoke. There is a reason people say correlation doesn’t equal causation, it’s because it doesn’t. Doesn’t matter what fucking p value the statistical tests turn up. Any one who interprets this study as proof or even strong evidence cigarettes increase T is a midwit.
t. Daily smoker
Men in general take more risks and do dangerous shit like fighting wars or working on oil rigs
The real clincher will be if smoking raises testosterone in lab animals.
Why do people think higher T = doing more dumb shit?
Higher T = More Risk Taking
If you don't risk anything you will never get what you want. Couple that with low IQ which isn't neccessarily the main company of High T men, but for some it is, and you get the disasterous results that draw the most attention.
Correlation does not equal causation. Nice try tobacco garden gnome
OP failed middle school science. Show me where it says smoking increased test.
Smoking does not cause cancer
Smoking does raise test. Ever noticed that females who smoke tend to look kinda masculine and speak in low voice?
I only smoke in the golf course and at bars to pickup women. Lots of chicks smoke when they drink so I sometimes head outside to the patio and carry abs lighter and ask to bum one as an icebreaker
I’m 23 and I smoke cigarettes
My dick works fine but I just smoke about 1-3 cigs a day
Gotta die of something papi
How long you been on the 1-3 day grind? I smoked 2-3 cigs a day for almost 3 years until I quit despite everyone saying “you’re gonna crack and eventually you’ll be smoking a pack all day.” I miss it quite a bit
Same except I was around 5 a day for 6 years. Smoking seems somewhat gross to me now but I do sometimes miss it.
For a while now but after the third one the need to smoke just goes away
I only smoke when I’m outside and I’m barely outside so that helps
As long as you don’t take “smoke breaks” every hour you should be fine
Don't worry about it, I've been smoking 10 cigs for 5 years ever since I turned 15, last month I didn't smoke a single cig cuz I was on a vacation, it's not as addictive as people make it out to be.
>Gotta die of something
have fun dying from the slowest and most painfull suicide ever invented
Huh? If I got stage 4 lung cancer I would just shoot my self with one of my 12ga
makes you feel like absolute shit way before cancer hits you. why make your quality of life worse over a fucking drug that does nothing more than give you cravings and doesnt even get you high.
>because i like it
youll grow to hate it. if you could go back and not start at all, would you?
I legit think if I didn’t smoke I would just have drank and been fucked either way, or found myself in jail. Society should be thanking Marlboro because without them I very well would have killer someone or been in countless bar fights because I didn’t have a crutch. My testosterone is just too high. I don’t take rounds but a lot of people tell me I have roid rage
dont you think that maybe smoking keeps you from starting to deal with whatever issues you have? and down the road smoking wont be good enough to cope with the issues and you have to start drinking heavily ontop of smoking a ton to cope
Too late now.
Smoked cigs from 18-28.. switched to vaping from 28-34.. and 1 month ago switched to the zyns. Can actually breath again...
Are the zyns worth a shit? I bought some storebrand nic gum and almost vomited and later shit myself because of whatever additive/sugar alcohol they had in em. Also whats the best flavor?
>both total and free
Sounds like something is effecting SHBG. Either it's production, or taking up attachment space. Not necessarily good or bad without other known factors.
I can feel my testosterone going up right now
>Sucking on the garden gnome stick
Newports plz go
i smoke and my test is mid to low tier, would probably get higher if i stopped because it fucks my health up. and why is every "smoking increases test" thread also with an image of malboros? have tobacco companies no other way to advertise anymore so they go on IST and shill this absolute bullshit? honestly,pretty smort if thats the case
