Tobacco use: Smoking will certainly stain the filiform papilla of your tongue. Stop smoking and the condition should clear up. The rest of your body will thank you, too.

"Simple solution": After you quit smoking try to decrease the consumption amount of teeth staining foods and beverages such as coffee, tea and cola. Keep a good oral hygiene and visit your dentist twice a year. Good luck.
