I think rumours about Lin Dan, Lee Chong Wei or Taufik Hidayat smoking are complete jokes.
Maybe they smoked a cigarette once or twice in their lifes, but they certainly can not be regular smokers!

Nicotine, besides being highly addictive, is also one of the oldest forms of poisons. In fact, nicotine is still a key ingredient in some insecticides. I got this from one of the episodes of CSI.
I used to be addicted to tobacco before I became addicted to badminton. I'm glad to say that because of my desire to excel in badminton, I've kicked the habit and have been nicotine free for almost 3 years now. How I wish that I've taken up this sport earlier in life, probably I could have quit at a younger age.
As for this thing about eating within 30 minutes after exercising, bodybuilders consume a carbohydrate rich shake within half an hour after they workout to help speed up the muscle repair process. For those who are serious about the sport or are in training, you can also incorporate this in your diet/program. Check out this link: http://www.menshealth.co.uk/goals/fi.../3/article.php

Even taking a non prescription cold medicine could fail drug testing.

A few of the Chinese players do smoke... But I'm not sure who they are.
Some of the coaches smoke constantly... though.
PS. I heard the hardest drinker is Zhang Ning

Many of the players have backgrounds where they do not excel in academic studies. Thus, they get more easily drawn into smoking. Public health against smoking is weaker than in the western countries.
Sun Jun is a smoker and amazingly can still win the World Champs.
