You must strongly consider quitting smoking. Smoking increases your risk of heart disease especially if you are having hypertension. It is a good sign that you have gained control over your blood pressure with the medications.
Try to include exercise in your daily routine after advice from your physician.
Avoid alcohol use, even on weekends.
