Re: Question about the health if you smoke hookah.
I have recently had several friends and family telling me how dangerous hookah smoking is and that I should quit. They are all reading the reports found online that say that one hookah session is equivalent to 200 cigarettes.
But even those researchers say that hookah smoking is so new to the US that they haven't done nearly as much research as they have on cigarettes and admit they don't know everything about it.
But from my own experience as an ex-cigarette smoker, I don't cough nearly as much as I did from cigarette smoking. Shisha doesn't have all the added chemicals and added nicotine that cigarettes have. In general, I feel much healthier smoking my hookah than I did with cigarettes.
So as far as I am concerned, hookah smoking is a MUCH healthier alternative to cigarette smoking.
