so by looking at the duration that your lungs are exposed to smoke both should be around the same.
the more accurate way is probably looking at weight of tobacco you smoke (grams of tobacco in a pack/grams of tobacco in a bowl)
can't really do it by weight...because when u smoke shisha the tobacco isn't consumed in the process whereas with cigarettes it is. IE your shisha bowl is still full when you are done smoking but your cigarette no existe.
