Cigarettes, also known as fags, (TV: The Girl in the Fireplace, PROSE: The King of Terror) were a type of drug used by humans. They consisted of tobacco leaves rolled up and lit on fire, the user inhaling the resulting smoke.
In 1964, the miniaturised Ian Chesterton and Susan Foreman discovered a box of cigarettes while investigating Arnold Farrow's sidewalk. Forester and Smithers later smoked cigarettes while inside Farrow's house. (TV: Planet of Giants)
In the 21st century, cigarette boxes advertised that "Smoking Kills". According to natives of that century such as Owen Harper, people from the 1950s such as Diane Holmes "smoke[d] too much." There was a smoking ban in pubs in Wales. (TV: Out of Time) It was illegal at this time to sell tobacco products to those under the age of 18. (TV: For Tonight We Might Die)
In 2011, after Miracle Day caused all humans to be immortal, some speculated cancer cells would be nullified. Allen Shapiro believed this was enough reason to start smoking again. (TV: End of the Road)
Humans often went outside or to secluded areas to smoke. By the 51st century, spaceships like SS Madame de Pompadour had smoking pods where crew members could smoke. Rose Tyler noted when the SS Madame de Pompadour had no life signs on board that the crew members couldn't have gone outside for a "quick fag" in deep space. The Tenth Doctor responded that he checked the smoking pods. (TV: The Girl in the Fireplace)
