Alcohol and smoking can lead to male impotence!

Do you consume a lot of alcohol? Are you a heavy smoker?

Most doctors define impotence or erectile dysfunction as the disability to achieve and maintain an erection good enough to penetrate the vagina during sexual intercourse.

Most of the men experience impotence from time to time. This is normal and there is nothing to worry about. But if the problem persists, impotence can destroy a man’s ego, his sexual life and relationships. This can lead to lowered self-esteem and embarrassing situations.

Older men appear to be more affected by impotence than younger men. About 20 percent of men older than 60 are impotent. By 80, more than 70 percent of men suffer from it.

But this is not always the case and some men in their 80s continue to enjoy great sex on a regular basis. Obviously, age is not the only contributing factor to impotence.

The use of alcohol can make one feel sexy but the same relaxing drink that reduces sexual inhibitions can also make you completely impotent. And men who drink too much are so overcome by alcohol’s sedating effects that they end up in bed sleeping, instead of having sex!

This is because alcohol stops the production of testosterone, the hormone which controls ones libido. With too much alcohol, the testicle’s ability to produce this hormone is impaired, resulting in much lower or even no interest in sex.

Heavy smoking is another contributing factor to male impotence. The more you smoke, the more blood vessels are damaged. These includes the large arteries and tiny vessels which bring blood to the penile area and make erections possible.
