In brief: SMOKERS COUGH

You are smoking too much at 20 years age.
You may have bronchits or asthma, and you need to consult your family doctor for the reason for the constant cough.In smokers if they have a bronchial infection, it takes longer to resolve. My sincere advice is that you should seriously stop smoking.Discuss with your doctor if you have a desire to stop smoking.Good luck and quit cigarettes.
