Hello All, For the past 2 years i was having high blood pressure. I.e averaging around 150/90. When i quit smoking in June the pressure went up to 158/95 and i always thought that i would be better smoking. But 4 months down the line for the past 2-3 weeks my bp is around 115/70. Now i know that smoking increases BP and the fact that arteries get brittle with smoking. SO my question is why did my bp started returning to normal when i quit? Does it mean that my heart is returning to good health or is there something else happening?
