Thanks for your query.
Given your background of smoking and regular drinking, possibilities include diseases in the stomach like gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux or gastric cancer.
As it is getting worse with time, you need to get it evaluated as soon as possible.
At least an upper GI endoscopy has to be done.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer further followup queries, if any.
