Is there something you hookah pros do when youre sick with a sore throat and want to smoke? tricks of the trade, like vicks in the base or something bizzare like that?

Well, I definitely wouldn't put Vicks in my base, maybe you could try some medication to lessen the soreness in your throat. For me, if I'm sick, I tend to just skip out on smoking. I don't find it enjoyable when I start hacking up mucus after every draw.

I def know the feeling but lets be honest smoking ANYTHING, yes even hookah, is probably not a great thing to do when your throat is sore.

Try using cold water in the base and then put the base in the fridge so that the base stays cold while making the rest of the hookah. Then when you are about to put everything together put ice cubes in the base and smoke like usual. The cold will help soothe the throat soreness for at least a little bit. That's what I do. It works and is enjoyable to smoke that way even if you don't have a sore throat.

I second this. It's like smoking a menthol cigarette when sick, suppose to clear you up a bit. I would certainly give this a go next time im sick and wish to smoke!

The last thing sick people should do is smoke cigarettes. You will only feel more like shit. Smokers also get sick more I think

i usually just get some italian ice and eat it while im smoking and sick, soothes the throat, also i like smoking bc it loosens the mucus, it can get annoying, but its nice in the end

If your throat is sore, you're better off taking some mucinex and waiting for the soreness and mucus to go away. Do what you want, but I don't advise it in the least.

If I have a sore throat, I don't smoke. I find even with the right flavor, it's worse the next day. I take a break for a few days.

I dont smoke when im sick. It just takes the fun out of it for me and leaves me feeling worse. Its better to take care of yourself, first and foremost.

Wouldn't all that coldness kill your flavor? I've found too cold water will destroy flavor of the smoke.

And to the OP. I'd avoid smoking while not feeling well.

My advice is to not smoke until you have recovered- the observation that smokers get more sick is a fairly accurate one. The last thing your body needs is more radicals and a chemical irritant (albeit a mild and delicious one) on top of the already existing infection.

When I'm mildly ill (blocked nose etc) a mint shisha helps clear my sinuses - a bit like airwaves. But I wouldn'tsmoke if my tthroat is sore. Like it is now
