Danger of Food Aspiration

I have posted about a bad breath yesterday, but a further thinking process led me to think it might be about food aspiration.
This breath odor has a sickly meaty smell and increases when breathing, especially in the area around my throat.
I realised I had been chocking on food quite often lately (for no reason or stupidity), so it occurred to me maybe it is related. It could be some piece of meat or bulgur, the rest I don't remember.
How dangerous it would be if it is indeed the case, and could simply a bad breath be a symptom of aspiration pneumonia?
Should I be worried? Should I wait and see what happens next?
Please help, and thank you.
