well there are a few different things that happen/can happen.
a)to much CO causing light headedness and/or head aches
b)nic-a-fits, to much nicotine in the system causing the above and digestive issues (nausea, craps, etc)
c)some report that smoking "makes them go number 2, in a bad way" i dont believe this and thing it is just that they are smoking 1-2 hours after they ate diner and had something that didnt agree with them (being that im gluten intolerant and didnt know it for years i can promise that when you eat things your body is sensitive to it doesnt take long to get that urge)

so, light the coals fully, dont over do it, and dont jump to blame the hookah if you have digestive issues
