Re: How harmful is smoking hookah?
I think of it this way:
Is smoking bad for you? Yes
But lets break it down. A bowl of shisha has less nicotine then one cigarette. A cigerette smoker will smoke anywhere from 1 cig to 2 packs a day. We'll say the average is 8 cigs a day.
The average hookah smoker I would say smokes one bowl a day. Sometimes you smoke more then one, sometimes you don't smoke for a while. The less nicotene + less amount of smoking = not as bad as cigs.
