Exclamation Is my shisha burning & advice requested

Hi I'm rather new to Shisha and hookah smoking, I bought my hookah yesterday, its a small 10" pumpkin style hookah. I've smoked Shisha at a party and I wasn't the one who lit it or anything but last night when I bought mine I tried to do it myself, The store I bought it from had no Coals in sale so I took some hot charcoal from our fireplace, I put a NICE amount, maybe too much I'm not sure if that why, I had one layer of tin foil, shiny side down, I had Icy water with ice cubes in the vase and I put a small amount because I was trying it out, I was smoking Soex Rooh-Afza Shisha and my the shisha was not touching the foil. I am not sure what I did wrong or if I had it right and I was wondering is anyone could help me, I know the shisha was burning too quickly because when I removed the foil I saw that the shisha on top was all black and under it was the shisha which was pretty much still colored brown/golden but wasn't as moist as in the bag.

Also can you guys refer me to a Canadian website selling shisha, Coal usage and shisha brands who have 0% nicotine 0% tobacco and 0% tar, as I said I'm very new into shisha and I want to know as much as possible, I mae many researches but Id like direct opinions and tips.

Thanks alot in advance, also this was my first post on the forum :P

Cheers!

Dont use that sort of charcoal...get coconut coals or natural hookah charcoal for smoking hookah lol. And yes you were burning it, if you do things right the whole bowl shoud be black and not necessarily cripsy. Also use heavy duty foil it will help with burning and remember to pack the shisha so its not touching the foil! good luck and btw kill the ice in the base as cold kills flavor good luck

i would use one layer of reynolds hd foil, soex i one of the worst shishas imo. get some nakhla and some coconut coals, or at least some quick lights. the small bowls that come with pumpkins usually only require only one coal on each side of the bowl.

whoops forgot you wanted low nicotine, i find social smoke tobacco to have no nicotine buzz though its unwashed, and a lot of people love the flavors they offer.

Al Fakher is a good, all-around shisha brand.

Make sure next time that you get coals for hookah. Natural coals are good. Quick-light coals work fine too as long as you let them get fully red before you put them on.

It sounds like you used A LOT of heat your first time. Normally when I use quick-lights, I start with it in the center, then move over to the side as smoke gets bigger. Naturals, I start with two center, then move to the side as it gets going.

I am also a big fan of doubling the foil.

nicotine isn't what screws up your health, its the tar, for which pretty much all shisha has zero or close to zero percent.

*Fixed for clarity

Tar is the result of combustion, which doesn't happen when you're smoking mo'assel properly. You're just roasting it

The people who don't smoke in the Army, end up smoking when deployed.
Ever heard the phrase "Smoke em if you got em" ? That came from the military.

If you are worried then don't smoke. The nicotine isn't going to be the biggest thing slowing you down. Smoke is just not good for you or for running even if its "herbal" (aka crushed sugar cane- which isnt an herb)

The only thing that might deserve the term herbal is hookahhookah teasha which is made with tea which id say is more an herb than sugarcane is...

Regardless, its not going to be any healthier for you.

Depend on people my friend! My father was in the Canadian forces for 17 years and the UN for 10 years and never touched a cigarette :P but im not looking forward to smoke cigarette either and I don't think I will, only shisha on occasions and to cool down!

But thank you all for the information everything here helped me alot!

Thanks guys!!
