Re: Hookah and #2
My friend's gut and nicotine are tied very closely together -- he craps every time he smokes his hookah. He's had to stop mid-session to "stretch his legs" actually. Called him the other day asking if he wanted to get together to share some shisha and the answer I got was, "No, already smoked earlier so I could take a crap..."
Oh well, I'm sure it's probably no worse or better than a lot of other drugs prescribed for constipations.
