Identify trigger : The best treatment for a cough is to first try to identify the trigger, so specific treatment can be provided. A cough specialist, such as allergist or pulmonologist can through chest x-ray, breathing test (spirometry) and a thorough history likely find the cause....Then comes the relief!

Color of phlegm white vs yellow vs green and finally duration cough for more than a week could indicate infectious process or a more severe viral infection.

You know the answer: I respect the fact that it is difficult to stop smoking but that appears to be the way to go. Check w/your doc or local hospital for a support group. The health hazards of smoking are well documented and your cough is a helpful warning sign. The very best to you.
