In brief: Any smoke at all
You don't even have to smoke the cigarettes, just being around the second hand smoke can make your asthma flare.

In brief: No number is known
This is not known and any cigarette smoking can trigger an exacerbation.
It could depend on type of cigarettes, style of smoking, severity of asthma and other factors. In general, smoking is not a good idea, whether one has asthma or not.
