Dentist told me I have "cigarette" stains?

I recently went for my 6 month cleaning and fluoride treatment and my dentist said I have a black stain and asked me what this could be from. Then, he said I have another stain that looks like its from cigarettes and asked me if I smoked? I'm only 17 and maintain good oral heigene. I don't smoke, drink, or chew tobacco. I dont even drink soda lol just coffee, so why did he say I have these stains?

    If you drink enough coffee, it can also stain your teeth. A way to prevent the staining if you do drink coffee, is by drinking it through a straw. That way, it doesn't touch your teeth.

    Coffee can stain your teeth in a similar way. Try brushing after the coffee, or chew some gum after. This will cut down on the staining.

    Textbook wise, the stains look very similar. Be it soda, coffee, tobacco stains, etc. They all look relatively similar.
