Default Re: been gettin alot of headaches recently

The reason you've been getting headaches is that the coal used to smoke narghiles releases CO when it burns and if you smokes for several hours a day you'll get a moderate case of CO poisoning. Tobacco ( even "herbal" shisha) is like alcohol in that it is wonderful when used in moderation. Taking massive hits hour after hour will put too much wear and tear on your lungs and put too much CO in your blood stream. It would be better to not inhale at all and limit your sessions to about an hour a day. Marathon sessions lead to headaches, dizziness and nausea. Listen to your body and smoke responsibly.
