Winter smoking can precipitate heart attack, paralysis and acute rise in blood pressure.

Smoking in winter can also increase the risk of erectile dysfunction in men. Men who smoke  20 cigarettes a day are 40% more likely to struggle with erectile dysfunction than men who do not smoke. Nicotine present in smoke can constrict the blood supply to the male organ.

As per a study published in the journal Tobacco Control, in men aged 16-59 years, the risk of erectile dysfunction is almost double in smokers than in non-smokers.

In winter, blood pressure and diabetes may also be uncontrolled adding to the problem of erectile dysfunction.

Obese people and people who consume more alcohol are more at risk.

Depression is also common in winter, adding to the agony.
