Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

Many of the risks and dangers of smoking such as lung cancer are equally share by men and women, however it seen that male smokers may also experience a decline in sexual potency and fertility, while female smokers have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, particularly if they are taking oral contraceptives, and they also risk early menopause, cervical cancer, bone fractures, and reproductive difficulties. Also women can find it much harder to stop smoking than men do.

Regarding lung cancer women smokers are 25.7 times more likely than women who never smoked to develop lung cancer, while for men smokers, it’s 25 times the risk of men who never smoked. (Source: US Surgeon General Report 2014)

Regarding cocaine it can also act as a carcinogen and cause lung cancer and based on the present evidence the risk is similar in both men and women.
