Em hotep!

My feeling would be: moderate, occasional smoking ist probably okay.

1. Harming others ist against Ma'at. So smoking around children would be especially bad, and smoking in places where other people are forced to breathe it in is not ok either

2. Self-harm is also not OK. It's disrespectful to your soul and to the Gods who made your body. Excessive smoking ist definitely harmful and therefore against Ma'at

3. However, we should enjoy life and it is totally ok to indulge sometimes. Drinking alcohol in moderation was fine in ancient Egypt, and I would see smoking in a similar way.

Ma'at is all about moderation. If, for  you, the joy of an occasional cigarette outweighs the risk to your health: go for it.

Just my personal opinion...
