    Look at a fireplace burning fuel. Then go outside and look at a chimney. See all that smoke coming out the top? This simply means that as it burns fuel on the bottom smoke comes out the top. Therefore if someone is "smoking like a chimney" then obviously this means their butt is on fire.

    That is an idiom, "smokes like a chimney". To smoke tobacco (cigarettes, cigars, and so on) to excess. Generally stated as a criticism of the smoker, this term, which likens the habit to smoke pouring out of a chimney, has become a cliché owing to increasing disapproval of the tobacco habit.

    Chain smoker, smoking one cigarette after the other. Smokes 2-3 packs per day.
