Just had a heart attack, please help

I'm a 31 year old female, low blood pressure, normal weight, no family history. My only risk factor is that I smoke (or used to). My bad cholesterol is 85. I had a heart attack a couple days ago and am now recovering from angioplasty. My Dr. put me on Plavix, Asprin and Zocor. I've been left with far more questions than answers. What are the chances this will happen again? If I never smoke again will my heart repair? Can I reduce my risk of further complication without taking drugs? What are the long term affects of these medications? Does this mean that I have coronary artery disease? PLEASE HELP!

Additional to other answers above. No coffee, spicy, and alcohol Recommend "Program to reverse heart disease" by Dr Dean O'nish, and Pauling therapy and praying. It's CAD, blood clot in the heart is still lucky than some other parts. Need aspirin the rest of life. Plavix is strong blood thinner (but easily getting bruises) to avoid blood clots for new stent, so never drop this pill until doctor instruct you to do so. Cholesterol will drop significant with Zocor, but the worst side effect is fatique to some people.
