Default Re: It IS addicting

I think its a combination of both a physical addiction to nicotine and the psychological addiction to the relaxed feeling when you smoke. I think the addiction feeling is different from cigarettes because of the quantity aspect. It takes about 7 minutes to smoke a cigarette and you smoke hookah on average 1-2 hours. Longer time=more smoke, more smoke= more nicotine. Therefore you can go a longer time before the drug is removed from your body and you feel the need to smoke. That and the fact the tobacco used for shisha is a higher quality tobacco than what they use for cigarettes with a higher nicotine content to begin with.
