Nicotine: Are you vaping away your erections?
Vaping seems to be the healthier alternative and increasing in popularity but also increasing in nicotine levels. The key here is nicotine.
Nicotine is a vasoconstrictor, it narrows your blood vessels which makes it harder for blood to flow around your body.
Blood needs to flow to the penis for an erection to happen and the blood needs to keep on flowing to maintain that erection.
So if nicotine is makes it difficult for the blood to flow around the body it will also make getting and maintaining an erection difficult.
Nicotine reduces erectile responses, also reduces arousal response, your brain might be aeoused but your penis might need a couple of minutes to catch up!
It's awesome the you quit smoking and moved on to the healthier alternative which is vaping, nicotine patches or gum.....the final step is to taper down the nicotine levels and open up those blood vessels to let the penis do it's duty.
