thanks for your query
As you are chronic drinker and smoker, and you feel a discomfort in your throat and voice box, better to evaluate it.

I you advice you to consult ENT specialist, you need to do flexible video laryngoscopy.
Laryngoscopy and stroboscopy will clear all your doubts and take treatment accordingly.
Many thanks, take care.
