I see onthe other thread you started you learned you have been immunized for hep b so hep b antibody testing is not needed.

As far as I know as a lay person you are protected for life that is the purpose of vaccinations. 

However, I am not a doctor I am a CNC machinist if you have a medical question you should ask your doctor.

Your doctor will know the correct answer to your question

Or you could google your question as I just did

https://www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/hbv/hbvfaq.htm

"How long does protection from hepatitis B vaccine last?

Studies indicate that immunologic memory remains intact for at least 20 years among healthy vaccinated individuals who initiated hepatitis B vaccination >6 months of age. The vaccine confers long-term protection against clinical illness and chronic hepatitis B virus infection. Cellular immunity appears to persist even though antibody levels might become low or decline below detectable levels.

Among vaccinated cohorts who initiated hepatitis B vaccination at birth, long-term follow-up studies are ongoing to determine the duration of vaccine-induced immunity."

So based on what I am reading from the US CDC (Center for Disease Control) the vaccine is good for at least 20 years. However, you are not at risk because no blood was exchanged as you did not share snorting tools. You could ask your doctor if they recommend you receive a updated vaccination for hepatitis B as it has been 20 years since you originally inoculated
