In brief: Possibly

Nicotine is a powerful drug.
It can have various effects depending on the person and the situation. If nicotine was part of your depressive complex, either physically of psychologically, it may lead to a negative result.

In brief: No

But I have seen people smoking more when they are more depressed so there's a relationship, but not a causal one.
