Hi, welcome to HCM.
Nodulocalcific densities are nothing but old healed small infection. It can happen any time during life. Some infection get completely cured. In few cases small focus remain where calcification occurs.
It is completely normal now. It is not related to smoking or drinking at all.
Thanking you.
