I hold it at the bottom of the long handel and sit back if taking it easy if smoking aggresively i hold one hand at the bottom of the long handel and one wrapped around the mouth piece (i think this is a Pakistani thing) and i smoke out the side of the mouth but this is just how i feel natural smoking, i dont do it because its traditional even though it may be so.
I think you're taking this too seriously, just smoke how you want. Shisha is about relaxing, unwinding not stress. Chill
I dont think anyone cares even if you went to an Arab country as long as you dont blow smoke in anyones face and put your feet up on the table i dont think there care either. If you do visit one just copy what they do, simple.
