The American Heritage Dictionary defines "chainsmoke" as a verb meaning "to smoke cigarettes or cigars in rapid succession." In my personal experience this term is most commonly used to describe the practice of using the still smoldering butt of a cigarette to light a new one. In theory this means that with only one match you can smoke continuously until you pass out or die and the paramedics pry the cigarettes out of your spastic tumor ridden fingers.
