In brief: Yes, can be likely.

Smoking is a major risk factor for squamous esophageal cancer.
Alcohol use is another major risk factor, and the combination with smoking is synergistic, or greater than the sum risk for both.

In brief: Absolutely

Tobacco smoking is one of the most important risk factors for upper esophagus cancers, also known as squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus.
It is also the most preventable cause of lung cancer. I strongly urge you to abstain from tobacco smoking.
