In brief: Smoking

Cigarette smoke damages the lining of your upper respiratory tract, making this prone to the development of infections that non-smokers rarely get.
It also damages your lung tissues. And you pay money to have this happen. Stop smoking, see you doctor to find out if you have anything more serious than cigarette induced bronchitis. Good luck.
