In brief: Exercise

Assuming you have had any concerning pathology ruled out, most 'mechanical' or muscular back and neck pain is best dealt with by focusing on proper posture, stretching and core strengthening exercises.
Yoga and pilates are great strategies for this. Nicotine must be eliminated. Focus on non-inflammatory foods: ie drastically reduce sugar, refined/processed foods, diary, meat; increase fruits/vegs.
