Re: what mistakes you made has a hookah noob?
The first newb mistake I made was the first hookah I bought....complete trash for smoking. I also did not know that I needed coals to smoke it. I had enough sense to get some tobacco....but I had no idea that it was something I couldnt just "light" and smoke.
Then.... when I got the coals... I didnt know that I needed foil or a screen.... so I ended up smoking Al Waha with direct contact.
It was then that I decided I was a newb and had to research online.
So really, in all, my biggest newb mistake was going in without researching and learning beforehand.
