Re: what mistakes you made has a hookah noob?
One sunny afternoon in summer of 2005:
A friend and I went to the park with my small egyptian hookah. When we arrived and wanted to start smoking, we noticed, there was no coal. The coal was still at home ... but why should we go back? It was a distance of about 1km.
So we did the silliest thing, I ever did with a hookah: we put the shisha into the bowl, lighter on it and smoking it directly. Fire instead of coal. It was awful and an incredible buzz!
but yeah ... what shall I say? I'm still alive!
