The answer is possibly, especially if there is a co-factor such as iron defeciency anemia or a low hematocrit.

The smoker inhales a large amount of carbon monoxide, which binds to the erythrocytes (it has a stronger attraction than the oxygen molecule) and a two-pack a day smoker may have the oxygen carrying capability of his/her blood reduced by 35%. Furthermore the carbon monoxide stays for days in the system.

Clearly this can lead to fatigue.
