This is tough. Both, when done excessively, are damaging to health. Drinking damages the liver, whereas smoking causes lung cancer. Though drinking is more socially acceptable in most countries (Islamic world aside), I believe smoking is actually less damaging to health than drinking. An individual can harm him/herself and others far more severely and quickly by excessive drinking as opposed to excessive smoking. Drunk-driving is a clear example of that.
