In brief: See your doctor

Tingling feelings in your hand can be symptoms of many things, including several serious ones - like a transient ischemic attack (TIA) which can be a forerunner of a stroke.
It may be a vascular or nerve problem in your arm, and certainly tobacco (which reduces blood flow) will make it worse. Cutting down is good - stopping is better!
