Re: whats the point?
1) Cigarettes taste horrible, whereas hookah tastes grrrrreat!
2) Cigarette = 5 minutes? Hookah = an hour.
3) Cigarettes contain ammonia, antifreeze, burning agents, formaldehyde, etc. And that stuff just doesn't do it for me. Lol.
4) I can't chill in a great lounge with great atmosphere with great friends for hours and smoke a cigarette. That is a job for the glorious hookah!
Any one of those reasons is reason enough for me.
