Default Re: Hookah worse than Cigarettes? I think not..

It's a toss-up honestly.

You get almost no tar, which is a huge positive. On the negative side, you get about 100x more carbon monoxide. Plus quite a bit more nicotine than a single cig, which isn't good for your heart or nervous system.

I don't see people getting lung cancer from hookah, but I can see other adverse problems down the road if you smoke all the time.

I'm 100% addicted to hookah... but the average person isn't as likely to get hooked on something that takes 15 minutes to prep, unlike a cig that takes 10 seconds to light.
