2 doctors agree

In brief: Cough in a smoker

You have type 2 diabetes and on meds, are you on ace inhibiters which are used for high blood pressure in diabetics for renal protection and can cause cough.
Smokind iyself can cause chronic cough and chronic bronchitis, but you should see your doctor as its been for 5 months and you want to know the cause and get treated.You should seriously stop smoking.

In brief: Need exam

A chronic cough could be something benign like allergies, serious like emphysema, or deadly like cancer.
You need to be seen and examined.
