It depends on how much you have smoked and for how long, 40 ciggs a day is very different from 5 a day. A very rough average for people in their 50's who have smoked since they where teenagers is 5-7% chance to develop lung cancer before they reach 65.
Here's a table with approximations: 1 pack a day for 30 years > less than 1%
1 pack a day for 35 years > about 3%
1.5 packs a day for 40 years > about 4%
2 packs a day for 45 years > about 8%
2 packs a day for 50 years > about 15%
