Smoking on Fast Day

Is it mutar to smoke on a regular fast day (i.e. 17th of Tammuz, NOT Tisha B’av)?

Answer:

There is no special prohibition on smoking during a regular fast day. Nothing is actually consumed, and therefore there is no fasting prohibition involved.

This does not mean that it is permitted to smoke on a fast day any more than it is on other days of the year…
