Patient : I recently smoked two cigars in one day. I have never smoked anything before and I was inhaling the cigar smoke which I now know you're not supposed to do. I was not coughing heavily and I did not feel sick after. Still, I'm worried I've caused damage to my body. I am an athlete and I'm worried I will lose muscle and endurance as a result. My question is, does heavy inhalation of cigar smoke result in a loss of MUSCLE and ENDURANCE?
