#4 – Avoid Cigarettes And Other Tobacco Products
The nicotine present in tobacco products could significantly increase blood pressure for more than an hour after smoking. If you are a chain smoker, your blood pressure will constantly be up throughout the day, putting you at a higher risk of having a heart attack or stroke. In addition to quitting tobacco, you should also stay away from other people who smoke. Secondhand smoke, or passive smoking, can increase blood pressure as well.
