I have.  I started out thinking that many, possibly most, people who smoke are sinning.  I now think that it is too complex a question to estimate what proportion of smokers do so sinfully.  There are too many factors involved.

Indeed, but I would still say that everyday smokers are not sinning, but there is a matter of culpability at play.  Nearly everything that a person does in this modern world can be seen as harmful to one's body.  If we declare smoking a sin, then we must declare MANY other things a sin as well, from eating red meat to working in polluted environs to taking Ibuprofen for a headache (since NSAIDs are terrible on your liver).  In the meantime, I'll just keep puffin' on my Marlboros until I know that it is the proper time in my life to give up the habit.
