In brief: Absolutely

Nicotine is a vasoconstrictor, so it robs organs of blood supply.
Erection is heavily dependent on adequate blood supply.

In brief: Yes!

Agree. Smoking also leads to blood vessel abnormalities in general, and to noteworthy locations such as the heart, brain, peripheral vessels causing symptom of claudication (leg angina), and can decrease blood flow to genitals.
Erectile dysfunction can be an early sign of more general vascular disease and risk factor for heart attack, stroke ( in the right patient) don't smoke; see your doc.
