In brief: Could normalize

You you are heavy and drinking/chewing excessively, dieting/exercising to get to ideal body wt, stop drinking/chewing may normalize your blood pressure.
No eat too much salt--google up the dash diet (dietary approach to stop hypertention) and follow it. Then check your bp, if still high, consult doc. The money u save from drinks/tobaccos will be more than enough to buy medicines. Good luck.
