Dear brother in Islam

Smoking is forbidden in Islam, and therefore one must not help any body in this act by any means e.g. encouragement, donation etc.
If you are sure or nearly sure that the person who asks donation will spend this money in smoking or any other forbidden deed, you are not allowed to give him donation. However, for whatever you have given, you repent before Allah and avoid to give donations to such kinds of people now.

Allah knows best. Thanking You
