In brief: NO
Generally speaking, no.
But if the person you share cigarette has cold blisters on his/her lips or anywhere in the mouth, (herpes infection (type1), you can get herpes from the person.

In brief: No
Stds are not spread by that small of amount of saliva on an inanimate object like a cigarette.
They are spread by infectedbody secretions but saliva has far too small a volume to spread stds.
