Yes it does. I just read something about smoking affecting muscle growth. It was convincing. I don't remember a single detail about the article. I don't even remember where I read it.

Hope that helps

EDIT: I don't remember whether it was the Nicotine that was the problem.

Yes it stunts growth. Not to mention the cardio vascular problems.

I don't think so. I think the article referenced a study. You can probably search and find it somewhere.

I wonder if Nicotine is the bad guy in this situation. I read somewhere that nicotine actually helps to cut fat.

I don't know about the study.. But I know I have put on 25 lbs since I quit smoking and all my lifts are through the roof.. Just personal experience.. Not sure if there is any correlation..

It also acts as an apetite suppressant. Which to me is the second biggest drawback.

No bodybuilders are immune to the effect of nicotine. We can also beat ourselves upside the head with a 12 pound mall daily with no adverse consequences.

Yes, nicotine does help people keep fat off but it does so in a way that ain't good for you. And it ain't good for your training.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
