Quote from hollygirl05:Hi, I'm kinda in the same position. I smoke 1 and a half a day. I have a persistant cough and my voice is always hoarse, I'm always trying to clear my throat. My chest has been feeling really tight. I also have pain in my neck that goes into my shoulderblade. My shoulder is always sore. I think I may have bronchitis, but I haven't been to the doctor yet. All this has been going on for 6-8 months now.
I don't know what to tell you, just thought I'd let you know you aren't alone.
Please keep me updated.
