And yet another reason not to smoke until you are an adult:

So I wont have to read another one of those "How do I come out of the closet about hookah to my parents?" threads.

Excellent point Lake. I wish I thought of it. When I was young I wasn't really interested in tobacco at all although my father was a pipe smoker I never thought about it until I was in my late teens. Although I tried cigarettes as a young adult I never liked them because they burned hot (as a result of the short filler) and tasted like crap. I never even heard of narghiles until I went to Syria on business but by that time I was long time pipe and cigar smoker.
