The first reading is how much pressure there is when the blood leaves your heart. The second reading is how much pressure there is when the blood returns to your heart its lower because its far away from the heart at this point. Yes it is a normal reading nothing to be worried about but smoking will increase your bp over time amongst other not so nice things
