Can't get it up? Stopping smoking is the answer...

...yeah, right!
The “science” on smoking isn’t about finding the truth. It’s about getting people to quit, no matter what. The latest research proves again that you can make any wild claim you want as long as it pushes that anti-tobacco agenda.
So there's been another "research" report aimed at the smoker, not any old smoker but us men...well I suppose it's our time as women smokers have been lambasted for many a year now for their enjoyment of lit tobacco.

So what does this "new" hard research have to say about men and smoking?
This time, the Health Police claim that men who quit get the instant gift of firmer, harder erections — and I’m sure the headlines alone had plenty of guys ready to kick the habit.
Well Dr. Douglas, I am not one of them. As I am at the wrong end of 50 and been married for 40 years sex has been off the agenda for some time now but my libido keeps rearing it's ugly head and has a non conformist attitude with it's own armament, (even though it has nothing to shoot at.)
You know how it is: If a study found that hitting yourself in the head with a hammer would produce a firmer erection, lines at hardware stores across the country would be out the door by the end of the day.
Don't think so, pain is not my thang. In the interests of our fellow men what are we do do in light of the evidence, take it with a pinch of sa..
But don’t toss your Zippo yet — toss this study instead, because it doesn’t mean zippo for your penis. For the study, just 20 of the 65 men roped into this one managed to quit smoking, and none of them — not a single one! — actually noticed a change in the quality of his erections.
Phewww, that's a relief, not that I was worried you understand.

You see when it comes to something small, especially in the anti smoking, lets denormalise these filthy bastards world of Tobacco Control, they always find a way to make something tiny bigger by doing some Quixotic research. In this case the findings were so eye wateringly small that they used special equipment and a pair of tweezers to see it:
The “improvement” mentioned in the study was so small it could only be detected by a lab device called a penile plethysmograph. Yet that was all the researchers needed to crank up the old propaganda machine.
I bet that put the researchers off their game eh, bet they downplayed their findings?
“Regardless of if this really does apply to all men who smoke or not, (the goal was) just getting the word out that men could be aware of this finding, so it could influence their decisions to start the quitting process,” he was quoted as saying.
 Gambling was never my forte anyway!

I'll leave the last word to the good Dr. over at The Douglas Report:
I won’t play their game.



I’ll pick science over sensationalism every time, and you’re not going to believe what the objective science says about smoking: Tobacco can help BEAT heart disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and even cancer.

This IS another load of nonsensical crap! A mate of mine gave up smoking 5 years ago because his wife badgered him to death about it! Result: she's now badgering him to death because he's LOST interest in sexual activity altogether!
btw...they're both in the 40's - not their 80's!

I can see why those anti smokers beleive not smoking gives you a better erection - They're all a bunch of wankers.

(Sorry)

In the text wot I rote Bucko I resisted the urge to use cock jokes. (The modern parlance is to call male idiots a cock I do believe.)

It is indeed.
I tried to resist the urge to swear, but sometimes they don't half wind me up.

This report presents Big Pharma with a bit of a conundrum. On the one hand (so to speak, Bucko) they want people to quit cigarettes so they can sell them lots of NRT, and on the other, they'd like them to keep smoking so they can sell them lots of Viagra.

Well? So what's it to be, boys?

On the up-side I muast be getting stronger as I get older, at 30 I couldn't bend it when proud, now, at 69 I can.
