3. Cigarette Smoking

Smoking tobacco products such as cigarettes can also lead to stable angina. This is because smoking significantly constricts all blood vessels, including those leading to and from the heart. This interferes with the heart's ability to receive enough blood and oxygen, resulting in the pain and discomfort associated with stable angina. Fortunately, when someone quits smoking, the blood vessels immediately begin to repair themselves and almost always return to their normal capacity.
