If you are diabetic, smoking will increase the risk of nerve damage all over your body, including your feet. Nerve damage in the foot, or peripheral neuropathy, can cause numbness and pain. This happens because tobacco damages the arteries that carry blood to the nerves. Smoking will slow down blood flow and reduce sensation even further in your feet, making neuropathy worse. Ask your doctor for help with quitting!
