While the symptoms described are likely to be due to chronic inflammation associated with smoking; if seriously planning to quit smoking, I would suggest considering a visit to a medical practioner who would be able to prescribe medications that would be helpful in the process so that you are able to cut down the number of cigarettes faster and minimize the health effects. You may also like to consult a primary care physician for a detailed evaluation of the symptoms and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.
