Thanks for writing to us.
The habit of smoking is not likely to cause the back pain you are having. It is more likely to be due to a myofascial syndrome which subsides with a combination of pain killer and a muscle relaxant. Doing a hot fomentation will also help you temporarily.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
