Consult an allergist: There are many causes for breathing difficulties and I think you are too young to have chronic bronchitis from smoking. If you have problem getting enough air when breathing in, conditions such as vocal cord dysfunction needs be ruled out as well. You should definitely stop smoking however regardless what is causing the breathing issue.
