You will notice after a month or so of quitting smoking that your BP will go down.

High blood pressure runs in my family so I'm a high risk for heart disease and heart attacks no matter what I do.  Giving up smoking is always a good plan though.  While I've never been a smoker myself, I have seen the change it's brought about in lots of people around me, including my father, who is healthier now in his late 60's than he was in his mid forties.

Best of luck to you, and if there's anything at all we can do to help, just let us know- we are all here for you!

My former boss used a prescription pill to quit smoking, I just don't remember what it was.  It worked great for him.

I quit smoking almost 6 months ago and I feel much better, I cold turkey but a friend of mine that has been smoking for 40 years also used prescription pill and they worked like a charm, the only downside is that the pills a very expensive.

John, best of luck. You have a hard time in front of you but in the end you will make it.

There is no problem that cannot be solved by the use of high explosives.

Good luck quitting. Rather than luck though, we should be wiling you more willpower. :twak:

Does anyone here suffer this pressure thing?

Mine varies from 170/90 to 156/90  ??? is it time to give up smoking or is it to late  :ahhh
BP before  140 / 105

stopped smoking cigars
lost 90 pounds
rode my bike 30 minutes  every other day
ate red meat  3x a month ( 10th - 20th 30th )

BP now  105 / 70

BP started to drop first 30 days - took almost a year to drop the 90 pounds - down now to 235 lbs

I still have 30 more pounds to lose according to the Dr.

Why do I carry a 45 ?
Because they don't make a 46 !

Good luck with quitting smoking mate.  It can be a tough road but its well worth it.  One thing that's proven to work is smoking cessation meetings with an advisor.  I've recently worked on a respiratory team and had close contact with a smoking cessation team who had fantastic results in an area of south wales where smoking and lung disease is rife.

Stopping smoking alone may not help your BP (blood pressure) to go down, but it could do.  More importantly it'll be good for you in several other ways.  Smoking is a major risk factor in a stupidly high number of diseases, so even if your BP does not improve you'll be better off.

Hope it works for you mate :tu:

Let's not forget that while pills, patches and gum can help, they can't make you quit smoking.  If they could, there would be very few smokers left.  These things are there to help you do it, not do it for you.  A friend of mine has tried many different types of ways of quitting smoking, but she isn't smart enough to realize that she has to make up her mind not to do it.

I smoked for almost 40 years,and after about the 100th time,stopped cold turkey in May of 1996,the main thing to remember is it only takes one to restart,I used a bic pen cut off to 100mm size,drilled hole in the end,and put cotton inside,carried and used it for several months,but it worked for me,and ate a lot of peppermint candy,Good Luck!!!
