What else could one expect from those who are so uptight about others lifestyle choices?

This is the latest cynical tactic of psychological warfare against smokers, utilising the power of suggestion.

The majority of erectile disfunction is psychological, and this rubbish is intended to plant the seeds of anxiety that lead to impotence into the heads of men who smoke.

I think it's despicable.

It is ironic that the population has not decreased, considering that millions of people smoke. I think Dr. Goldstein is a kook! I think the combination of poor eating habits, smoking and stress have alot more do to do with impotence and arteries being blocked. It is not just one factor. If a person stops smoking and still fills their bodies with fatty foods, lack of exercise and lives in a stressful situation, they still can have a problem with impotence. I do think it is a fear factor and bad medicine. I wonder who sponsored this little study!

This is not a "warfare against smokers", this is the truth. Ask your doctor, or read this article:

I'm surprised the antis haven't tried second hand impotence or even third hand.

Sorry to give them any ideas.

FWIW, I have even read of "second hand obesity" concerning the crusade they are taking on now, so they will and do try anything hoping Joe Schmoe is gullible, so I wouldn't doubt this would be the topic of another one of their future news releases.

The study was sponsored by a drug company that is promoting this:

Smoking Cessation Drug
http://www.smokingcessationdrug.com/

Which is basically Chantix and Zyban, etc.

Chantix
Chantix or Champix, known also as Varenicline Tartrate, is a medication prescribed to patients seeking to end their smoking addiction. It does this by reducing cravings and decreasing the pleasurable effects of cigarettes and other tobacco products. Common side effects include nausea, headache, difficulty sleeping and abnormal dreams. It is estimated that there are 3 million Americans taking Chantix now, according to Pfizer. In November 2007, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) began investigating reports of depression, agitation and suicidal behavior among patients taking the medicine, after they had received reports of 37 suicides and more than 400 of suicidal behaviors that might have been linked to Chantix. According to the FDA, a link between Chantix and serious psychiatric complications is becoming progressively probable.

Additionally, the drug may further worsen preexisting psychiatric illness or cause a recurrence of past issues. Pfizer contends that these episodes of irrational behavior have been caused by nicotine withdrawal, however, the FDA's findings stated that even those patients who had continued smoking had similar psychiatric episodes. Most recently, the FDA has been evaluating reports that in addition to erratic behavior in patients taking Chantix, suicidal thoughts, depression, and changes in the emotional state are present in many cases, setting in within days to weeks of beginning the treatment.

Someone had told me about the effects of Chantix long ago, especially if someone has psychiatric problems that can be effected by the drug.

I had read in a local paper about one user who did not have any history of prior psychiatric problems and DEVELOPED them for the first time AFTER taking the drug.

There are good reasons the FAA banned its use for their pilots.

The FDA needs to ban it, too...immediately.

My friend, I'm well aware that smoking is not amongst the healthiest of activities. I don't need to ask my doctor to affirm that.

I think you'll find that almost every adult in the western world is well informed enough to make their own choices, and they don't need people like you rubbing their noses in your propaganda.

As well as smoking, I very much enjoy binge drinking, and eating varieties of junk food with high levels of trans-fats. I know lettuce leaves and freshly squeezed fruit juice would be better for me, but that's the choice I make as an adult.

So, we have two choices here as I see it...smoke and kill ourselves, or take them meds and possibly murder hundreds in a shopping mall. Hmmmm, quite a decision to make.

It reminds me of a few years ago, when I was prescribed some tablets for shock, after being involved in a car accident in which several people were killed.

I went through a temporary (thank God) personality change.

I was getting into fights, and was generally very short fused with people, until I read the fine print and threw them away.

How many people's problems start in earnest when they start taking anti-depressants and the like? I'm certain they cause more mental issues than they solve, and I believe they should be avoided at all costs.

I agree Gaz, a similiar thing happened to me and I also threw them pills away. Now, with the fibromyalgia, my doctor has tried to put me on all kinds of pain meds and anti-depressants, when simply all I had to do was change my eating habits, exercise and meditate, I feel better than I ever did. Pharmaceutical companies are making hand over fist profits from joe public. There should be more funds towards alternative treatment for trauma, especially ptsd. Now, I know for a fact that people with bipolar are helped with some drugs, my sister is case in point, especially for schizophrenia. But, I do not agree with giving everyone these drugs until they are thoroughly examined and giving alternate therapy.

The issue of cigarette banning has really pissed me off. Reason being...I do not smoke, but, I think it is unfair for places , such as hospitals and colleges to completely ban smoking from the premises. There is a hospital here that you are not allowed to smoke the entire length of its grounds. They are even trying to say they own the public sidewalks. A local college here has also banned smoking on the premises, not even making a designated area. I think this is hazzardous because people are going to try and sneak, hopefully there will be no incidences of accidental fires. I think this college should also inform incoming students that there is a ban on smoking before they enroll in that college. Like I said, I do not smoke, but, I do not wish to heed other people's choices. Especially if it is in a designated area in which they are not exposing others.

The Energizer bunny..it's not.

It's snake oil that hopefully will make you a non-smoker AND dependent as antidepressant customer for the rest of your days.

The drug company agenda.

I read of a college student that fell off a balcony because of these ridiculous laws.

However, it went down as a "smoking statistic".

That's all people are to these scum.
Statistics and nothing more.

There is no Hippocratic Oath that they follow.
None.
