Getting a good start: You appear to be making healthier lifestyle changes to manage BP by proper dietary changes and stopping smoking. Recommended alcohol intake is up to two drinks a day for males

Smoking and BP: In general each cig increase BP for at least 30 min for it would depend on how much you are smoking. The healthiest thing you can do is to stop smoking. Much more effective at preventing heart disease that anything else you can do. The benefits start immediately including reduction in sudden death.
