well i'm not a cigarette smoker nor do i ever plan to be. however the other day i saw a dude smoking a cigarette and biking, he was going pretty fast. well i thought this is kinda counterproductive. but then i got to thinking i knew a guy who smokes cigarettes and long boards really fast he also went to state for highschool cross country running and he was an avid chain smoker among other things. the same guy also played tuba.
do cigarettes really effect your performance or does the constant use of your lungs keep the resperitory system going strong?
