If you met a person that smoked a pack every 2 days about, I know that it would be a turn off but enough to be a deal breaker, even if they were willing to quit for the right person? If you could explain your reasoning as well that would be cool. No hate please, you have your vices and I have mine!
Doesn't bother me.

Bothers me, but not a deal breaker.

Bothers me, not a deal breaker if they're willing to quit.
Since I smoke, in the process of quitting, it wouldn't be a deal breaker but the issue is that if I were to completely quit and my girlfriend was a smoker then it'd make it much harder to quit. It's the same with being around friends who smoke when you're trying to quit.
That being said, I think smoking is more of a mental addiction than a physical one.
I dated a smoker before. He was actively trying to quit, so I had no problem with it. He did not accomplish that while we were together and as far as I know still has not. I am not sure if I would want to go down that road now. I do not want to have to deal with the health effects of second hand smoke.
It's proper vile; It's possibly the most disgusting thing a person can do. Your breath smells like shit, your teeth are all tinged, your gum line is usually all discoloured, your tongue is all caked with shit and discoloured, your kisses taste like an ash tray, smoker's cough is disgusting to be around, your entire body smells like smoke.
Absolute deal breaker. Smokers need to quit for themselves, not someone else. If you quit for someone else, you're much more likely to start smoking again at some point because deep down you're not willing to change. Even if you still are in a relationship with this person. I would not date a smoker. Not even if he promised to quit.
For some strange unknown reason I actually find a guy who smokes a cigarette to be more attractive, but I wouldn't like him smoking a pack every 2 days or anything. Just a cigarette every once and a while, like when he's super stressed out or something, that's what I find kinda hot. The whole chain-smoker bit is not hot, however. Smoking can lead to lung cancer, asthma and other health risks, and I want my man to be around for a long time.
Deal breaker, even if they say they'll quit because they never do. Most of my exes said they'd quit and they would sneak and smoke I could taste it when they kissed me. Granted that's not why I broke up with them but I just couldn't be with someone long term knowing they weren't going to be healthy in the long run.
I hate the smell, but i find its more unattractive when a girl smokes then when a guy does.
I really dislike when people smoke but I won't stop talking the person for it.
Nobody on gag smokes has sex or drinks, dw about it.
It's not a deal breaker for me, but I think I'd prefer to date someone who didn't smoke because I'm an ex-smoker myself. Being with someone who smoked might make it more difficult to stay quit. I wouldn't expect someone to quit for me because I know how difficult it is and I think it's something you can only really do for yourself, when you're ready.
