Re: cigs vs. hookah.
Well to tell you the truth NO FORM OF SMOKE IS GOOD FOR YOU!
When I started out smoking, people told me BS stories about hookah being "not bad for you" and that "the water filters all the bad stuff". Now, I try to argue about it with those people and they merely roll their eyes as they light their cigs :\
No form of tobacco is better than the other...All of its bad for you...I just think each is less harmful than the other.
I got "smoker's cough" for a while a while back and started coughing nasty stuff! pleh! Now there's some evidence against the rumor that hookah is supposedly not bad for you.
