In brief: Yes

you need to be evaluated, you can have asthma as well as bronchitis, quitting smoking is definitely a good start, but you need more, follow up with your doctor

In brief: Several months

It may take several months for the airway to normalize after stopping smoking .
This may be hindered by asthma out of control. Continue your astma therapy including a laba/ics combo plus a saba. If not imptovinf an evaluation with pfts is indicated.
