Number 1: stop smoking.
It is always possible.  You should see a doctor to help you decide if you have symptoms concerning for heat problems like shortness of breath, chest pains, swelling in your legs, waking in the middle of the night short of breath.  The best thing you can do in the mean time is stop smoking.
I hope this helps.
