In brief: How long?

How long have you had this? If only for a few days, it could be either strep throat, or mononucleosis.
If it has been longer, you should definitely see your doctor, especially if you are a smoker. Even strep throat needs to be treated. The internet is not a replacement for a physician actually examining you to determine what you have, and what needs to be done!
