Re: Hookah Stigma
My parents both smoke cigs.. they did bother a bit about hookah at the start, but when I explained everything it was alright. My bro's also smoke hookah, and my mum joins sometimes when smoking at home. My grandma/grandpa even smoked a few times with me!
I have a group of friends that also have hookahs and smoke with me each weekend, so they know all about it too. Other's don't, but most have done it a few times and seem to enjoy it too.
Most ppl in the Netherlands know about smoking hookah I think, or they bother less than other countries I think, IF there is no shit like drugs in it (as it's legal here).
