  Alexander Graham Bell (1847 - 1922) (More info to come.)
  Physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904 - 1967). No doubt that he played with a deadly toy, however, his most famous quote has nothing to do with his smoking habit:

"Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."

He quoted this from the Bhagavad Gita upon witnessing the first atomic detonation by mankind on 16 July 1945.
  The world famous American astronomer Edwin Hubble (1889 - 1953).

Politicians, presidents and Royalties
  Thinking of powerful men and cigars, we immediately think of two men in particular. The other is not to be found here, but this one is Winston Churchill.
  Pim Fortuyn, a Dutch politician who was shot on May 6th, 2002 because he spoke his mind freely, and therewith he said exactly what most of the people of The Netherlands thought.

  Smoker Helmut Schmidt served (West) Germany as chancellor from 1974 to 1982.
Queen Margrethe II
  Denmark's most popular woman, Queen Margrethe II, is a highly educated and creative person. For instance, she translated foreign novels, designed Danish stamps, Unicef postcards and ecclesiastical textiles (some are even embroidered by her personally), made scenographies for theatre and TV, and illustrated the Danish version of Tolkien's 'Lord of the Rings' as well as the New Danish Bible.
The antis, however, can only see her cigarette. They call her 'Ashtray Queen' or even 'Drag Queen'. Being asked about her so-called smoking problem, she simply stated: "I have no problem."
Warning: Smoking may cause extra creativity in Danish Royalties!
Princess Stephanie
  Even though Princess Stéphanie of Monaco has always been hounded by the press because of her rebellion, loves, careers and past, I think she's just a modern princess doing things her own way. Like smoking for instance.
  Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882 - 1945) was the 32nd President of the US. He was elected to an unprecedented four terms, and died in office. His main contributions were the instituting of major economic and social assistance programmes in response to the Great Depression, leading the country through a successful involvement in World War II, and helping in the formation of the United Nations.
His most famous quote: "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself".
