Question: I want an answer from Specialist too.
________________________________
I have been smoking from almost 9 years now. I am sometimes a moderate smoker & sometimes a heavy smoker. I have been drinking from quite sometime now. sometimes heavy & most of the times moderate.
i am not sure from when exactly but i think from almost 6-7 months (may be more than that or less than that) i have heard some kind of 'hiss' sound from my throat. Usually I have heard this when I am sleeping & when its quiet. 'hiss' sound comes slightly. just like how soda is poured in a glass. like that kind of sound.
what could be the reason for this? would this be because of smoking? has smoking caused a lot of problem inside me? or is it because of alcohol consumption?
pls answer to my question in detail. I am worried about it.
