In brief: Yes

Smoking increases the risk of many cancers, especially lung, and head and neck cancers of all types.
The longer and more frequent the exposure the higher the risk. Also adding alcohol raises the risk of many of these cancers even more. Nicotine is harder to quit than almost any other drug so get help and don't give up trying.
