    Alchohol abuse could damage the sperm. Damaged sperm = potentially damaged fetus. Second smoke breathed by the mother if in the same room with the father will certainly cause some issues.

    Alcohol and cigarettes increase the chance of mutated spermatazoa. If a mutated sperm cell fertilizes an egg, the developing fetus (if it survives the pregnancy and isn't miscarried due to severe issues) can have serious issues.

    Also, understand if you choose a man who smokes and drinks to father your children, you are putting them at risk for physical abuse and neglect if he drinks more than socially and increased risk of athsma because of the cigarette smoke. A pregnant woman around a smoker might as well light up, herself; she's not breathing clear air anyway.

    Smoking, definitely! Second hand smoke, and drinking problems are heredity. If the sperm is bad from toxins, it can cause a screwed up baby!

    It could, in the production of sperm cells, but smoking in front of mom can hurt the unborn

    Smoking and drinking do cause the sperm to be not of best quality. I'm assuming if the sperm are not of best quality that it could effect the egg and it's development.
