    My views ...open for correction.

    The sentence should read ' he drew on his cigarette and blew the smoke out'.

    That sentence is not correct.
    'He draws on his cigarette and blows out a stream of smoke.' is grammatically correct too, but 'He drew on his cigarette and blew out a stream of smoke.' is probably what the writer meant to write.
