Can someone talk to me about high blood pressure worries

Saw the dr yesterday for yet another uti and was shocked at my bp being 161/99. He didn't seem massively concerned and said to have it rechecked within a month.
I've checked on home bp monitor today and it's sitting around 150/90.
I'm in the process of losing some weight and have cut down smoking to a couple a day, I know this needs to be the first thing to stop.

What else can I do? My mum has been on bp medication since her early 50's. I'd really like to avoid medication.

Any tips please

I've been on bp meds since early 40s. What are you worried about re meds?
