In brief: Shortness of breath

Most likely chronic pulmonary disease from smoking but still have to consider cardiac causes.

In brief: Cant be sure

Difficulty breathing is caused by heart problems, lung problems, anemia and/or deconditioning.
Smoking is a culprit inany but not all of these problems.
