Similar to a pack and carton of cigarettes, many non-player characters will start to chain-smoke if a cigarette is placed in their inventory; perhaps the most visible example of this is Jericho, who will smoke even if he is wearing headgear which covers his mouth. However, the player character cannot use cigarettes themselves. Giving a follower cigarettes will not get rid of the cigarettes, even after smoking them. They will stay in that follower's inventory until revoked by the player character.
