A Puff of Smoke
: If people blow smoke, they exaggerate or say things that are not true, usually to make themselves look better.
SMOKE LIKE A CHIMNEY
: Someone who smokes very heavily smokes like a chimney.
END IN SMOKE
: If something ends in smoke, it produces no concrete or positive result.
: This is a way of expressing surprise: "Holy smoke! Look at all of those geese!"
NO SMOKE WITHOUT FIRE
: When people suspect something, there is normally a good reason for the suspicion, even if there is no concrete evidence.
