Fire: Yes. Of course. Much of the damage from smoking is from the smoke, the fire, the heat, the by products of the smoking. Not just tobacco.
Dr. Laura Yauch
Specializes in Family Medicine
Still bad: Nicotine has a number of negative effects including blood vessel constriction, increased blood pressure and heart rate, increased clotting tendency, bronchospasm, emphysema, heart burn, nausea, tremor, headaches, sleep disturbances, dizziness, insulin resistance and of course cancers including the larynx,mouth, esophagus, bladder, and lung.

Very harmful: Smoking is very harmful to your health (even if there are not additional additives). You told us that you know deciding to smoke is DUMB - listen to yourself and don't start.
