Allergies?: This could be due to allergies. Allergy to pollen,etc will make your nose and throat itch, and can cause a cough. Try some Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) Claritin, or Zyrtec for this. If these don't help, see a doctor. Also, your smoking likely contributes to the cough, work on quitting-- try nicotine patches or lozenges, work on tapering the amount over 2-3 months. Set a quit date and stick to it! Good luck!
