In brief: Asthma

First off, quit the cigs.
Then you need to have pulmonary function testing. Afterwards, your asthma doctor (if you have asthma) will prescribe daily controller therapy in the form, most likely, of an inhaler medication(s).

In brief: Asthma

Asthma needs to be managed well and you need to start with your primary care doctor and if need be they may send you to a specialist, such as an allergist or pulmonologist.
And you should do your part of the treatment too: stop smoking!
