Riverkid is (as usual) correct. The smoking sentence is not passive voice. In the passive voice, the subject is moved to a prepositional phrase (usually) at the end of the sentence.
The boy saw the dog. active
The dog was seen by the boy. passive
We have one slogan in our campaign against smoking here:
"Smoking is hazardous to health."
