I'm not sure what a better word would be for what you are describing, but I simply disagree that intelligence plays any kind of a factor into the decision to smoke.
Some of the brightest, most intelligent people in the world have made lots
of choices I consider to be stupid or lacking intelligence. Including me!
It's not (necessarily) that the person is stupid or lacks intelligence.
I get that you disagree with me, and that's ok. All is well!
