Hello!  I'm new to the group today and hoping for a smooth as can be transition to being a permanently ex smoker and not go back to it again and again and again year after year.


About a month ago I decided I wanted to try and do what ever I could naturally to lower my blood pressure naturally and change my heart and lung health for the better. I meet with a cardiologist for the first time tomorrow to discuss whether I need any medication but I've found that high blood pressure can be caused by among other ways: smoking, binge drinking, caffeine, salty foods (too much sodium) and being overweight, which are my hurdles.  I had already begun an exercise program months ago and started a meal service program a few weeks ago with for heart healthy foods and to help get me to an ideal weight as well as cut the sodium and unhealthy fats.  I stopped drinking coffee daily and for now alcohol altogether in order to avoid temptations to binge, but mainly because I realize that now is the best time to quit smoking as well because coffee and alcohol wont be a trigger. 


Am I taking too much on at one time?  I'd like to look ahead and see a time where I can moderately with the exception of smoking which I'd like to be permanently quit.  Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions!


Already feeling the withdrawals.
