Yeah, reviving old topics are sometimes popular
But to add something to the topic too. In my opinion you can't compare cigarettes to hookah, as you can't compare cigars to hookah too. They are different forms of smoking. But it's true, that the most "disgusting" of them is the daily cigarettesmoker, who can't stand to smoke one of them for 10 minutes. I do not have problems with people, who can enjoy their quality cigarettes, i do it sometimes, but most of the time it's the habbit of "running people" who don't have time for anything.
Hookahs and cigars are another thing. For them you should have time for lighting one up, just sitting on a sofa and chilling, or chatting with other people. It's another form of pleasure
