im not trying to be a prick here, just seems like you're splitting hairs.
I agree with this a lot. Combustion is combustion, just because its not tobacco and there's low/no tar (what does that even mean? no tar) doesn't mean it's jam packed full of antioxidants.
If you think you're smoking too much, control yourself. Give yourself a break from the hookah for a week then go to nightly sessions or every other night.
If you want my opinion of herbals, I thought they were all crud a few years until I tried a sample of the black label stuff. I think someone gave me butterscotch or I got it from a free promotion, stuff was damn good for lawn clippings and tree bark. Haven't tried the brand you're talking about, from what I can tell it's a relatively new product.
