Re: First time smoking...
My first time was just a couple of weeks ago. I had heard about hookahs and wanted to try it. But I am older than the local crowd and felt really self conscious going into a hookah bar on my own (no one to go with either). So I bought a Sahara Genie and worked up the nerve to tell my husband.
Anyway - My first time was in my half finished studio. It was sweltering hot and heating the coals made it hotter.
But I managed to pack the bowl right the first time. I really fell in love. But not with the Nakhla Vanilla I was smoking. That was like smoking play doh. My next time was with Nakhla Cardamom. Oh so good!
