Q. Hello! I want to ask the effects of smoking on athletes in this case, I’m a pro swimmer, I know it’s strange because I’m an athlete and I’m not supposed to, but I used to smoke once in a while for example at parties, but I never smoke more than one cigarette, could that affect my performance in any way? Thank you!
A. Research shows that smoking even 1 cigarette is not good for you. Best not to smoke at all!
