Re: smoking bad for excercise?
It also has to do with inhaling. I smoke cigars as well as pipes since a long time ago and that has yet to stop me from training for parkour (and trust me, that can truly be breath-taking, and not in a romantical way). It might also have to do with the moderation I have regarding smoking, but also I never inhale (obviously). Everything is bad for ye when ye do it too much; even excercise. So the best thing to do, moderate it. Moderate the smoke, the drink (I barely do it anymore since training at 10 am weekend-wise with a hangover is not the definition of nirvana), sleep enough and leave fast food and pops and ye'll perform like ye might've never thought yer body could.
