In brief: Tricky ?

As an allergist I do not believe anyone is allergic to cigarettes.
..Perhaps unless you work in a cig factory..... As a doctor there is nothing good about smoking and for your health you should just try to stop... Good luck.

I agree with Dr. Novick. Tobacco farmers may become allergic to the tobacco plant, but cigarettes release chemicals capable of causing cancer, small particulate matter that can trigger asthma and lung damage that can lead to COPD. It's not an allergy.
