Default Why does my throat burn after a while of using ?

Hi im new here, and i just wanted to ask why when i start smoking hookah it feels good but after a while the smoke hurts my throat... idk why, i read that adding ice and more holes on the foil would make it go away but it did not. Anyone can tell me what im doing wrong ?

More than likely too much heat in turn burning the shisha and giving you harsh smoke.

yup, too much heat. Remove a coal and use heat management. Its ok to remove a coal and put it back on when the smoke and taste gets thin.

Besides heat management, what brand are you smoking? A lot of people get throat tickle from AF.

Sounds like either too much heat where youre burning it or it could be the tobacco

It can depend on the tobacco, AF nakhla and tangiers can all "tickle" your throat. Also make sure you are rotating your coal around the outside of the bowl every 25 mins so you don't burn your shisha.

I use some coals i bought that are round and when u put fire to it, it starts sparkling so i its pretty esay to set those up, and at first i used prince molasses but it was too strong and i got really dizzy, then i tried nakhla but i got really dizzy too so now im using al fakher and i like it, but if thats whats making my throat burn i might try a different one

you are using quick light coals, i would switch to natural coals because they put chemicals and sometimes gunpowder to make them light faster. Go and buy some natural hookah coals, i like coconara.

as others have stated the AF and sometimes nakhla to a lesser degree can give you that throat tickle type of feeling. i suggest not only picking up some natural coals (coconara, exotica) but also a diffrent type of tobbacco until you find one that suits your tastes. anything from starbuzz is generally good allbeit a touch expensive, and desi murli supposedly is to die for.

hope this helped a bit and happy smokin'!

Like others have said, it could be heat management.

The past weekend I set up a bowl and poked my usual amount of holes in the foil but got lazy and made them larger than normal and thought nothing of it.

Went outside and started smoking but got a mouthfull of harsh smoke no matter what I did to my coals and windcover.


I got a new peice of foil and redid it with my normal sized holes.

like everyone said, it burns when its harsh.

watch this vid from the hookahpro yt channel..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zvN1cL1uik

sometimes it could happen with certain brands .. always happens to me with alfakher .. try the tip from the video, and sometimes if this doesn't work remove the coals, lift the foil and check if the tobacco is burnt.

also, one tip.. always use the heavy duty type of foil (e.g Reynolds) it handles the heat better than regular foil..

so yeah.. check the brand, how many coals, type of foil, tobacco burns .. not sure if I'm missing any other point.

Happy Hookah-ing

Water/Cola/Beer really helps against throat tickle Normally I don't get throat burn when using a quicklight coal.

Try lighting the coal and let it cook on the bowl for a few mins, and make sure the tobacco is not touching the foil.

you can even try using 2 pieces of foil instead of one to lower the heat.. or use less coals and a wind cover to manage the heat..

AF gives me the tickles, but never a burning, sounds like everyone else has the same idea. Manage heat better, i have started playing with two layers of foil, but my bowl is so small that i can only use one coal. when i had my vortex i used one and a half, and if it got to harsh i would lake off the half for a bit.

Last night I had not really a burn but it just felt really really cold on the back end on the inhale and I have no idea what was causing it. Was trying fumari for the first time.

I'm gonna guess its from using QL's and poor heat management not because of AF, as that is a tickle, not really a burn. Look up some videos how to fix harsh smoke
