In brief: 2 times?

A couple of times an hour? A day? A week? A month? Please provide more information.
At any rate, smoking is not good for you, so you should not do it.

In brief: Cause=no,trigger=yes

Smoking, like being around fumes, inhaling dust or campfire smoke and many other things can trigger an asthma event.
Asthma is a lung condition you are likely genetically predisposed to. These exposures allow it to become evident, they don't cause it like a baseball bat causes the lump on your head.
