    anyone smoke cigarettes?

    Any lifters that smoke? I know smoking is not good, but how much of an adverse affect do you think smoking has on building muscle?

    Everyone here will chime in and say that smoking is bad.

    Personally, I smoke when drinking and/or gambling, but I'm not a "smoker" per se. Especially since I'm cutting now and doing cardio. Smoking will phuck you up if you do cardio

    Welcome over ozzy. Smoking kills, switch to dippin/chewing tobacco. At least that way you still retain lung capacity while getting your nicotine......and may I recommend Skoal Vanilla or Copenhagen Black, they're both good.

    Smoking? Been addicted to that...would not say it had any adverse side effects to my lifting at all. Now if I was going to be training for some type of fitness run or any sport it would probably affect it, but for lifting? No. Chewing? Mmm....Kodiak or Coppenhagen!

    I like to smoke a pipe on occasion. Better quality tobacco and a comparable mortality rate to non-smokers =

    I smoked a lot during this semester but after it ended I drastically cut down to like...1 or 0 per day. Eh.


    If you're a smoker trying to quit, switch from whatever you're smoking to American Spirit Lights. Something about the additive-free tobacco, even though it isnt any safer, I feel as if they're far less addictive than Marlboros or Camels. You feel addicted but you dont fiend for them like you see people doing for other brands. Whatever.

    Smoking prevents good oxygenation of the blood,, Dipping and chewing curb appetites. Both are bad for you. Has that been said before ? tuttut

    Just some FYI about those American Spirits. I used to smoke those and I liked 'em and I wouldn't've even switched if I didn't get this job in May where I had like 15 minute breaks and I sometimes wouldn't have time to smoke one of those because it took so damn long to smoke. It was more convenient smoking something that burned quicker.

    Also, my history professor (a smoker) was talking one day about cigarette marketing and American Spirits are marketed as "no additives in our tobacco" or some such thing...the thing is, he said, was NOBODY PUTS ADDITIVES IN THE TOBACCO, IT'S IN THE PAPER!

    Still, there has to be something different about those cigarettes considering how long they take to smoke.

    the lenght they take to smoke depends on how tightly they are packed and rolled.

    ive rolled cigarettes before and trust me one that is rolled losely burns alot quicker than one that is packed and rolled tightly.

    btw this was just a one time thing, for some reason i have a natural tendecy to be a good roller

    Ya, that's also true, I roll my own cigarettes every once and again...that's a good point.

    It's just interesting ... American Spirits - 10-15 minutes to smoke; Redz - 5 minutes

    I think nicotine will have a positive effect on body composition. If you go over to avant, you'll see people over there who use it with this purpose in mind. Many get it from other sources such as patches/gum.

    I dont think smoking will have a negative effect unless you are suffering from lowered endurance and cannot complete your workouts at a high enough intensity.

    that said, ive never smoked, because it will have adverse effects on other things, like your life.
