No way to be sure: Cigarettes are a stimulent and can have an adverse effect on you heart- with or without alcohol. Of course, alcohol does not help the situation. Either way, any loss of conciosness requires a full medical evaluation to rule out serious medical conditions.

Fainting ; smoking: It's very difficult to say the smoking and alcohol might have nothing to do with the thing the nicotine. A lot of information is missing ;how much did you have to drink etc. , what is your age , other medical conditions, what medications are you on.?
