You should be OK but it is not a good choice...

The full recovery process after the rhinoplasty procedure takes up to one full year. It is great you did not smoke during all 8 months giving a chance for you nose to heal properly.  At this stage smoking should not compromise your results. Of course you have to realize that smoking is never  a good choice for your health.

Smoking immediately after a Rhinoplasty, IMHO, may affect the final results but not if you started 8 months post op.  At that time after the nasal surgery, the nose is mostly, if not completely healed so smoking would not affect the final results.

Smoking in general is not good for you and can prematurely age the skin.  8 months after surgery, the smoking should not impact the final result.
