Some common habits, dependencies, and addictions will end up hurting your sex life. For example, studies show that smoking cigarettes can lead to weaker erections and it is a known cause of erectile dysfunction. Some scientists believe that smoking can actually cause the size of your penis to shrink, which is something that most men want to avoid. Even if it does not shrink, your penile tissue can still become stiff, which prevents it from stretching into a strong and lasting erection. Additionally, smoking causes many other health concerns, including heart problems.
Most of these health concerns can also negatively impact your sex life, so you should consider quitting if you want stronger erections. However, some dependencies and addictions are not so bad for your sex life.

Caffeine also sometimes gives your metabolism a boost, which can also help to revitalize yourself in bed and with making it easier for your heart to get strong enough to give you an adequate erection.

As a result, the erections that you want to get during intercourse will not be reaching their full potential. Therefore, you need to make sure that you are getting about seven hours of sleep every single night.
Nervousness is one of the biggest problems that you face when trying to get a strong erection.
