I need some advice from one in the medical field preferably. How bad is this for a family member who has recently had a heart attack. Will the hospital most likely advise him to stop - surely so. Family (including teen kids) might not be enough to convince one who is stubborn. Its tough being on the other side. I need help and advice please. Thanks....

Hi, I am having Heart palpitations for the past 5 days. It feels like skipping a heart beat after 1 hour of taking any meal. I am 21 years old and skinny. Sometimes my heart skip a beat 2-3 times in a row and I feel like to cough . For the past 1 week my eating and sleeping pattern has changed due to my vacations and I have started smoking , I know its very bad. I sleep at around 7 am and wake up in the afternoon. Am I having the palpitations due to the above reasons or there could be any serious issue? Thanks.
