Re: Smoking sickness:(
I have never smoked a cigarette. When I took up hookah at the tender age of 43, I got very sick the first couple of times I smoked. Beginners should take it easy, do not try to smoke heavily your first few times.
Start out slow. Attach the hose to the water vase loosely, so that it deliberately leaks, and you mix some air in with the smoke. Smoke in a well-ventilated area, and let your lungs and throat have a chance to get some clear air between puffs. Take it easy.
As you get used to the smoking experience, your queasyness should reduce.
