Tobacco Tar Fingers

ok maybe this is stupid but I smoke and have the tar stains from the cigs on my fingers----then I dip my hands in the tank---fixing plants and what not---re arranging rocks---do water changes----how toxic is this to the fish? Smoking may be killing me slowly but I dont intend to kill off my fish!

I rinse off my hands with no soap before I do any work on my tanks---but I know the residue must still be there----any articles on this? just curious
