Recoil in and of itself does not adversely affect accuracy. The bullet is out of the barrel before recoil begins.
Anticipation of recoil (flinching) will and does adversely affect accuracy. I don't know of anyone that can eliminate recoil, and that leaves us with controlling it in such a manner that a subsequent shot may be taken as accurately as possible. In many cases, a shooter will anticipate the recoil.... in order to make the recoil easier to control, you have to know when the shot is going to be fired. The only way to know that is to jerk the trigger so the shot happens when you want it to. That jerk, (flinch) will greatly diminish accuracy. A smooth, controlled trigger squeeze is much more accurate, and should result in each shot being a surprise to the shooter.
