Smoking MANY years?: Really, MANY years? And you're only 17? That's impressive but you're really playing with fire...or in this case, TOBACCO of dangerous proportions. The symptoms you're describing may have something to do with the smoking or may not. If the dizziness comes on consistently immediately after or shortly after lighting up & clears when you stop then, it's the tobacco. You need to see a doctor.
