In brief: Not necessarily
As your symptoms have been present for over a year, it is more likely chronic bronchitis.
This is a form of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (copd). If you are a smoker, you should quit. A visit to your physician is in order both for definitive diagnosis as well as treatment.
