Does smoking lowers the effectiveness of Mirena?

I m on the mirena . And I was smoking a lot. I wasn t even smoking a pack a day. I was probably smoking about 10 a day. But that was the first and it s going to be the last time I ever do that. But when I was doing this it was a month ago. Do you think just because of that one incident it effected how effective mirena is?
