    Yes. If you smoke you have the possibility of developing lung cancer, this risk is increased if you have some genetic predisposition. However if you don't smoke , you can't get lung cancer except maybe you're getting the smoke passively into your lungs by being with a smoker. Not all people who smoke will get cancer as genes, environment etc play a role. But why would you want to put yourself at risk at all?
