I think Hookah is a temp trend for many in the states. I smoked it a couple times with friends a while back then really got into it. I researched and researched. learned a lot about it. To this day, I now own 5 hookahs for personal use. I enjoy every part or it. From packing the bowl, to smoking it , then cleaning it. I also enjoy shopping around for new items and of course new Hookahs and trying out new stuff along with new flavors of shisha. To answer the question, Yes I see myself still smoking in 5 years. It believe it will die down a lot for most though. It has become a kind of like hobby for me. Getting to be kind of an expensive one.
