Already implicated in a whole host of illnesses, tobacco is today accused of facilitating the loss of muscle mass .

Smokers build less muscle each day than non-smokers. By pushing the investigations further, the cigarette seems to act on the levels of myostatins, protein inhibiting muscle growth and MAFbx, an enzyme breaking down muscle proteins, which are significantly higher in smokers. 

This therefore seems to prove that tobacco harms not only the lungs but also many other organs or tissues such as muscles. One more argument to quit smoking before having consumed all your muscle capital.
