Default Bummed.

Hey guys, so I got all excited about hookahs, even got a dope double hose tri-metal KM and a ton of shisha... unfortunately it turns out that smoking hookah gives me heartburn (I'm 23 with no history of stomach issues) while normal organic cigs don't cause any problems unless I smoke while drinking a lot, which just gives me an awful hangover.

So yeah.. I've got all of this tasty stomach poison and a pretty stomach poison delivery device... pretty sweet.

Anyone else ever run into this? I think I'd be fine smoking hookah infrequently, but I was smoking every day, sometimes several times a day.

Yup, well I've never had heartburn. I started smoking several (not seven) times a day, or at least once a day; I stopped smoking once I noticed the sick feeling and the heartburn and it immediately stopped and hasn't been back. I suspect even daily smoking would cause this. Granted, I'm usually smoking by myself and I pack somewhat fatty bowls that go for an hour or more..

Dang, man. That sucks. Are you using quick lights or natural coals? Drinking plenty of fluids? Eating before? Those are some of the regular things that screw people up, but your condition seems different. Who knows, you may react different than the norm. I have heard of an occasional case of the trotski's every now and then. Try a different brand and don't hoover it.

I hope you can work it out somehow, but if not, you can always send me your stash. (I'll PM you with the details. )

Your issue may be that you are smoking a larger quantity in one go than you are used to with just cigarettes. I would suggest try to pack a lighter bowl and make sure to take time between pulls. If this still affects you, try a different brand or a lighter leave based shisha.

I've tried the tea based shisha, and it's worked alright, although the flavor seemed a bit on the lighter side. Also, there are synthetic based shishas that may help if it is a tobacco based issue you are having.

Are you staying hydrated during your sessions or smoking on an empty stomach? This may also be an issue.

Well nicotine causes your lower esophageal sphincter(the valve that separates the stomach from the esophagus) to relax. When the sphincter relaxes it becomes much easier for stomach acid to travel backwards up into your esophagus.

You could try just taking an antacid (tums, etc.) before smoking hookah and see how you feel.

Eat before you smoke, neutral things, no tomatoes.

If you are using quick-lights, make sure they are red and have a layer of ash around them. They release chemicals that may be the cause of that feeling. This should prevent hookah sickness. Like other members stated before, make sure you have eaten before, that you are well-hydrated and if you start feeling sick, to lay off on the hookah. Hope this helps!
