This is not a sufficiently complex example on which to offer a
solution, nor is it even clear enough to understand definitively what
you want. So here is a guess:
dfrm[which(dfrm$cbr==1 & dfrm$smoking==1), ]
... which would return a dataframe (or matrix depending on what form
that data exists in) with only those cases where thos two conditions
hold. You can either assign this value to an R object or you can apply
the chisq.test() in what ever (unstated) manner you think has been
"working" to the returned value as a whole.
