At my last check up, I forgot to tell the doctor about smoking. Is that ok?

In brief: No!

Smoking is a very difficult habit to quit! Start with weaning your cigarettes down, when you have a craving substitute a 10 minute walk for the smoke.
Set a quit date in the future, and try using social media to announce to your friends your quit date. If you have a significant component of anxiety ( many smokers do) then an antidepressant like wellbutrin (bupropion) may help. Good luck!
