A new study has said that drinking, smoking or being fat does not make much of a difference to sperm count.
 Sperm Count Not Affected by Smoking, Drinking, or Being Overweight

The researchers found that the risk of low sperm count was high among men who wore briefs rather than boxer shorts, or had undergone testes surgery, or worked in an environment which involved exposure to chemicals.

However, the risk of low sperm count was found to be negligible with consumption of alcohol, use of tobacco or recreational drugs or high body mass index.
