Hello,

Welcome to iclinic.com.

  • Since your throat is not used to the smoke, which contains a large number of chemicals, it got injured and started to pain. Chronic smokers will not experience pain due to a permanent change in the cells of the throat, which resist smoke-induced injury. Your throat will recover in a few days.
