So you mean to inhale the smoke after taking a regular breath of air?

So like......air: breath in, out, in then take a hit? Cause i do go from exhaling air to inhaling smoke, like you descibed going from empty to full of smoke.

i personally use the second one, and that way i can start blowing rings when the smoke is weak at first ((it usually isn't for me though)) all the way through the cloudy smoke, to the weak smoke at the end. and because i'm making this "cough" motion with my throat, i don't really worry about having to exhale because the coughing gradually exhales some of the smoke
I saw the video on jaw popping but i suck at it.....i do the coughing technique too.
