Default you dont know what you have till its gone..

Ok. So the story is:
Today I was going to have a hookah session at my friends house (the one in all the videos with me) and we both knew that we were out of Coconaras, now thats not a problem cause the shop in our town sells them. The problem was, A FOOT OF SNOW. So i have a nissan xterra, 4wd, the snow was nothing really.. but apparently the fucking store owner decided that it wasnt important that he run his business. So we were on the hunt.
Well we finally found this middle-eastern owned store (10 miles away, in the hard snow) that sold a little hookah stuff and also some cigar and pipe stuff. We walked into the door and looked to our right, and found what we had been looking for. 3kings quick lights, we were saved(maybe not). So anyway we ended up just buying two rolls to have on hand.
I have had experience with 3k so i wasnt really skeptical, but after smoking coconaras for the past probably 30 bowls, i had become spoiled. Within 20 minutes of the first bowl, i began to get a pounding headache, so i just decided to slow it down and drink alot of water. I figured that would fix it. It did not, now everytime i exert any physical energy i get lightheaded and a pounding headache ensues. For reference, I know how to light coals and i know that they need to be completely red and ashy.


my question to you: Is the factor the coals or is it just a bad day for me?

Heh yeah bro, i lit a quick light once in my life smelled the fumes and threw out the whole pack instantly. Don't want that shit anywhere near my body, never the less in my lungs. Exoticas are quality coals, I've been using them for a while now and plan on picking up some coco naras for the first time on Wensday so i'll see if they really are that much better. Either way i'm sure if you know how to light coco naras correctly you'll have no problem with Exoticas, just cut them in desirable pieces cook em and your good to go!

Damn it's hitting you hard. Worst I got from them was only 1 night of pounding headache. Even tried to air out by playing basketball but felt the pounding when I drove home. So I guess I have an opposite effect from your case. lol

i found after ive been smoking natural coals i cannot stand quicklights, i havent tried johns yet which are supposed to be better, but the usual ones all still suck for me.

and be glad things are open when you have a foot of snow, we got a couple inches here and my university was closed yesterday and has a note to teachers and managers of staff "be lenient on employes and students due to the weather". when it flurries here people stop being able to drive not retarded (we refer to it as the snowflake slalom). now we just have ice on the side walks and alleys so its just kind of a pita, heck my internet was fubar yesterday cause of the snow and wind, and it wasnt very bad, you northerners would have laughed

lol yeah well they did a good job cleaning up the streets , but we got 3kings, so idk if it was a good or bad day. Anyway, I talked to the lady in there and i gave her the names of a few companies that she should try to order
i gave her:

nakhla
Starbuzz
Fantasia

the other shop around here is gonna carry AF soon I have a feeling so i decided that those three brands pretty much are the low,mid, and high priced tobbaccos. Also, I asked if she could begin to carry Coconara and Exotica coals, I have not tried Johns yet so I cant make a reccomendation on somthing I dont know about.
