Hi! Welcome to myLot! It actually depends on the weak body organ that a person has. Smoking usually affects the lungs and the heart first, so if a person has an inherent weakness in these organs, then smoking would be causing greater damage. Drinking, on the other hand, affects the liver most of the time, so a liver problem could be aggravated greatly by drinking. Well, according to a friend of mine, a person can adapt to smoking but not to drinking. Another one said that more organs tend to be damaged by drinking than by smoking. I will still stand by what I said that it really depends. Sometimes, a drinker and a smoker may die from the complication of either one, and it's because a particular organ was weaker to start with.

Both are vicious. If you would study diseases such as cancer you would learn that the predisposing factors to such diseases are smoking and drinking.
