In brief: Be proactive by
checking to make sure your seating has armrests and a good back support and possibly adjustable in sitting height.
Even then, make sure you get up periodically to breakup the time sitting. Consider exercising -emphasize core stengthening and keep trim along with avoiding smoking.

In brief: Lumbar support
I would get more lumbar support and make sure the chair is the right height so your posture is not compromised.
