Default About to pop my hookah cherry.

What's up guys? I've been a hookah admirer for a very long time, but have never actually smoked a hookah. [i] have never touched a hookah.

I got really interested a few days ago after I had woken up from a dream where I was in a hookah store looking at all the sweet stuff on the shelves. That sounds sort of lame, but I'm for serious. I'm not big on dreams, or meanings of dreams, but this one stuck with me after I woke up and was laying around in bed. I got up and did some hookah research, looked around online at different hookah stores, watched a bunch of shisha and hookah reviews on youtube and eventually ended up buying a hookah and some tobacco online.

I've been super excited the last 4 days waiting for my stuff to arrive (ordered from hookah-shisha). Finally got here while I was out at work today. I figured I would stop in and announce that I'll be popping my hookah cherry in just a few. Don't have time between when I get home and when I have to run across town to pick the girlfriend up from work.

It shall happen though, and happen soon. I hope I like it (I'm sure I will ) and hope to get along and have some fun learning more about hookah with all you guys and girls.

Thanks guys! I made sure to check out heat management before I lit my coals.

Like I said, got all my stuff from Hookah-Shisha. Heard lots of good reviews on them, and they lived up to it. Got everything decently fast, and got a few good extras. I'm planning to give the free mini Mya I got as a gift.

First bowl was good times. Didn't quite light my coconaras right the first time. Had to take them back to the burner after a few minutes. First smoke was Romman strawberry out of my Mya single hose. Tasty stuff. Definitely gonna need to find some hookah friends in my area. One bowl is a bit much for just me.

Welcome to hookahpro!

I am glad you enjoyed your first hookah experience. It does take awhile to get used to. I had problems with my first time setting up a hookah and had helpful friends there to give me great advice.

Romman is a great choice for shisha. Summer Crisp is really great in my opinion. I never had the strawberry but will take your word on that it was tasty.

The strawberry was good, though the flavor wasn't very strong. If you've ever had Haribo Strawberry Gummies you'll know what Romman Strawberry smells and tastes like.

And thanks for the welcoming comments!

I haven't had a really "strong" flavor yet. I'm heading out to a local hookah shop later today to see if I can't pick up a bunch of samples.

If you want strong flavors try a peach, sweet red melon by fantasia, social smoke tigers blood I hear is amazing as well though I've yet to try it but great reviews all around. I just tried blueberry fantasia and it had a very strong taste if you look in the intro forums and find my post I did a review of about a dozen shishas you could give a try. Enjoy and happy smoking.

Thanks again for all the welcome messages! I risked life and limb to get over to the only hookah shop I know of in town and it was closed. Bah! I'm not really able to order anything until I get paid on friday, but I can afford to pick up a few 50g packs. I'm interested to try some of the non-fruity flavors, or if I do pick up a fruity flavor it will probably be berry or something with mint.

Spearmint is a great none fruity flavor and is commonly called bubble gum as well. What brand of shisha do you prefer or have available to you at your local store?

Also as a general rule I follow any flavor named after an alcoholic beverage is a gamble. I've noticed several drink flavored shishas and didn't like a majority of them. I assume its because of the complex taste they are trying to match. Any others on HP notice this?

Well I stopped at the local hookah store (Smoka Hookah in Ann Arbor) and decided to try some SB because that seems to be a popular brand. Got Citrus Mist and Flower Power. Randomly decided on Citrus Mist for the first try. It is a pretty strong flavor. Not too bad either. The shop didn't have many brands I've heard of. Only other one was Havana.
