TB: I highly doubt TB based on your cough history. Prolonged cough, night sweats, fever, especially in the evening, fatigue, weight loss are the common symptoms of tb.

Will list the most: Salient ones . Cough with production of sputum, night sweats , weight loss , tiredness , chest pain , sometimes spitting blood . You may need to see your pcp and sorted out . He can do skin test , x-ray, sputum test and that will tell you the answer to your question.

Unlikely to be TB: Tb is pretty rare today. Given that you're smoker that's the most likely cause of your cough. Stop smoking! allergies, pneumonia, bronchiti, asthma and many other things can cause a cough.
