TAGS:Tisha B'Av
Halacha - 9th of Av
Submitted by Yankel  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: No. First of all, the Mishna Berura forbids smoking at all on any fast for the reason you mention. Even though the Minhag appears to be more lenient, on Tisha b'Av there is the additional issue that many Poskim forbid smelling besamim or any pleasant fragrances, and this would include smoking as well.
