In brief: Eat less!

I'm really not sure how or why smoking has anything to do with this question but a person loses weight only when they take in less calories than they burn/use.
The nicotine you get from smoking cigarettes will typically act as a short-term appetite suppressant and a metabolism booster. It's why so many models smoke. But the negative health effects far outweigh those temporary benefits. Quit asap!
