Re: First time smoking anything...
I had a cigarette before I ever had hookah but I did get a significant buzz the first time. Try breathing more often between pulls to circulate your oxygen intake. I have friends who've been smoking hookah for years but still get light headed. I think it's because they like to hold onto the hose for 10 minutes and not pass. Usually, they end up doing some weird yoga to get the blood flow back into their head.
