In brief: Possibilities...

Possible causes of your cough include bronchospasm from any etiology, including seasonal allergies, sinus difficulties resulting in post-nasal drip, gerd or even a combination of factors.
If you smoke, smoking cessation needs to happen to decrease airway inflammation. See your doctor so this can be diagnosed as all these possibilities have different treatments.
