Quit Smoking If you are a PAD patient and still smoking, the first thing we advise you to do is quit your habit immediately. Nicotine causes the blood vessels to constrict, further reducing your already restricted blood flow. As PAD patient, your body is already straining to deliver the oxygen-rich blood your lower extremities need. Smoking impacts not only your blood vessels but also your heart, lungs and other organs. Quitting smoking lowers your risk of developing cancer and other medical complications. Many PAD patients developed their artery disease as a result of smoking.
