"Does smoking make you lose weight?"
- Yes, it can.

"Is smoking bad for weightlifters?"
- Well, most of us are trying to get bigger … furthermore, smoking makes it harder for oxygen to reach your cells and interferes with vascularization as I understand these things. I remember Silken Laumann's famous accident just before the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.

She won a Bronze medal 10 weeks after having had her leg nearly severed.

A surgeon told her had she been a smoker, she would have lost her leg.

Your call.

well smoking is bad for anyone.. stupid question to ask on a health and fitness forum. It can help you lose weight but i dont think i would use it as a strategy to lose weight...

As an appetite suppressant, I think it's more the psychology of the thing. Giving your mouth something to do an' that. Chew some gum, drink lots of water and get a decent eating plan instead =) If you really come on a forum asking that kinda question, it seems like you want to take it up anyway. Sorry for being caustic :p
