Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
is a disease that can have significant impact on the person involved and family members.
Alcohol can affect the liver, cause heart diseases, pancreatitis
, bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract. It is also associated with some cancers and brain disease.
In light of the history of smoking, the chronic cough
may be a consequence of this smoking history.
In terms of the lungs, smoking can cause COPD and lung cancer
There are other causes of chronic cough such as sinusitis
, GERD or asthma but because of the smoking history the more likely causes would have to be ruled out first.
There are free programs that help with alcohol and smoking addition, you can determine whether any exist in your area.
There are also online programs.
I hope this helps
