I'm talking about cigarettes.
I would not, because as an ex-smoker it would be too hard for me to be around it and not start again.

If she does it occasionally and not during days when we're going to get intimate, I'm OK with it.
What I find kind of odd is how (somehow) smoking has become a moral character issue. I'm fine with it being a health issue, but to think that someone is of low moral fiber simply for smoking is just bullshit to me. Hitler didn't smoke. He actively discouraged it among his officers. Richard Ramirez didn't smoke. Churchill smoked like a chimney, as did FDR. Lincoln smoked on occasion. Einstein (quite the pacifist) smoked.
If someone eats a candy bar a day (which will probably kill you sooner than smoking a cigarette a day), his/her moral fiber isn't in question (though perhaps his/her judgment about health is). Smoke a cigarette a day and somehow you're worse than Idi Amin (another non smoker, btw).
For the record, I do smoke, but not cigarettes. I smoke a pipe or a cigar about once a month. My wife liked the aroma of my pipe (and it was just tobacco, not pot) but wouldn't kiss me for at least a day afterward, and I was OK with that. She hated my cigars and generally vacated the house when I smoked them, or she asked I smoke them outside.. We agreed that I could do it once a month (sometimes more if there was a holiday... I liked smoking my pipe at Christmas and cigars on Independence Day).1

I would never date someone who's currently a smoker. I'm not a smoker, nor have I ever been.
If they dabbled in smoking in the past, it's usually okay so long as they've dropped that habit. My current boyfriend used to smoke (not much, maybe once cigarette/week) and dropped it after a few months. I'm cool with that. He still craves it when someone who's smoking is nearby but I assure him he's much better off not smoking a cancer stick.2
