Smoking is the major risk factor for coronary artery disease and lung cancer.And is the second most common cause for death worldwide.
It is related to your cough and chest pain.

Chest pain comes in many varieties, ranging from a sharp stab to a dull ache. Some chest pain is described as crushing or burning. In certain cases, the pain travels up the neck, into the jaw, and then radiates through to the back or down one or both arms.

Many different problems can cause chest pain. The most life-threatening ones involve the heart or lungs. Because it can be difficult to determine the exact cause of chest pain, it's best to seek medical help..

The first thing i would suggest is to stop smoking. this is the likely cause of cough and chest pain.There are various causes of chest pain like heart attack, gastritis or muscular. the most dangerous of these is the heart attack. The heart pain occurs as a crushing or dull aching or tightening pain and can occur in any part of the chest, back, jaw, neck, shoulder or arms. If you are experiencing any kind of chest pain for the first time or pain which is different from before, you should consult a doctor to rule out heart cause of pain.
