NO: But it can be treated. You would be well advised to stop smoking immediately which will immediately reduce your carbon monoxide levels and improve oxygenation to your vital tissues. Alcohol use also greatly exacerbates ed and you should avoid it when you're sexually active.

Chelation therapy: Chelation therapy has been used for the treatment of atherosclerosis for over six decades. Ed can be an early sign of atherosclerosis that may involve other organs, most commonly the heart. Although other etiologies must be evaluated, this condition should not be ignored for both physical and emotional reasons.
Pad treatment with edta chelation therapy resulted in 85% good to excellent results.

ED: Ed due to atherosclerosis can be treated, cure would require resolution of the atherosclerotic changes and this is unlikely.
