In brief: No

Smoking raises blood pressure, constricts the blood vessels, and is bad for the entire cardiovascular system. In some people, rapid smoking results in hyperventillation, which may cause dizziness.
Smoking is especially bad with people who already have high blood pressure, and is a major contributor to getting heart attacks (and strokes) in those people.
