Will gently cracking my back damage it?

Dr. Jonathan Hyde
Orthopedic Surgery - Spine
In brief: Probably not
I am not a big advocate of "cracking" the spine, since there are occasions where after manipulative cracking where I have been consulted and have had to perform urgent surgery.
Those instances are rare. I prefer to recommend back core stabilization exercises for back health.
