Tobacco withdrawal can at times be prolonged and may last for months. However, in your case, I suspect that you are suffering from a throat infection which has added to your distress. Please see your doctor and get yourself evaluated. You may be needing a short course of antibiotics. Till then, try gargling with warm saline water.

Hope this helps. Best wishes.
