How bad is my heart rate?

I'm 19 years old about 230 lb's I do work out like run about .5 to a full mile on the treadmill every day or other day usually going for my fat burning heart rate but I usually end up doing cardio, as well as weight lifting for about an hour a day or every other day. I do smoke and drink and my resting heart rate is about 90 I checked this after a smoke I dont know how immidate it effects you and my dad has heart issues as well. After reading a few other sites about heart rate etc. I began wondering if I am in need of seeking help. Thanks for your time.

You're not in crazy imminent danger seek medical attention range, here.It's slightly elevated, but that could be due to a number of factors; have you checked it several times throughout the day? However, if you're concerned about your heart at 19, and trying to stick to this healthy lifestyle, the smoking is not working in your favor. Especially since there is heart disease in your family, you should be more careful. Drinking in excess can be equally unhealthy; moderation in all things, my friend.
