smoking is the key factor for all your problems,you can stop it with strong determination and will consult your nearby ENT or chest specialist,as it is difficult to suggest you medicines in this forum

Thanks for query,
You have all problem with smoking even though you are not quitting smoking.
You problem in the throat should be evaluated as soon as possible.
Consult ENT sp. and go for investigation and rule out any pre cancerous lesion.
It is possible that you might have leucoplekia patch and if it is there a matter of worry.
Ok and bye.
