Default being sick is not good

I've been fighting off a cough for a few days. the first night i smoked af mint to help and it did temporarily. the second day i smoked af honey to sooth the throat and it did. Now all of these things are mental illusion but they did actually make me feel better. i took a few days off but still have the cold and don't feel like waiting. I just opened a new pack of Nakhla TROPICANA hoping that the vitamin C factor will help....of course this will not help, but i will feel good temporarily.

What a coincidence. My friend also has a bad cold. Yesterday we smoked a bowl and mentioned how his throat was feeling better. Does it have to do something with the honey in the shisha?

there are some flavors that can seem to relieve cold symptoms but the fact is ,smoke is an irritant and will only prolong the whole sore throat thing.But I know where your coming from John.

ya i hate getting colds, i used to get them for months at a time (luckily before i smoked hookah regularly)

i havent smoked much the last few days, wed my stomach was bothering me and i just didnt feel like smoking much (i packed up a strong mix of earl grey cardmon and cinnamon and i think lemon or mandrin, cant remember, but i didnt smoke much of it, probably would have been a great smoke if i was feeling well. thursday i went to a chow my brothers band came down for, yesterday my stomach was being stupid again so i only smoked one bowl, and now im home for spring break so i wont smoke as much as normal, but its really nice out here for the next few days so i will probably try to get a bunch of smoking in.

totally feel your lack of hookah sadness john. just push those fluids and eat stuff to make your body's ph go basic

I feel your pain... vitamin C is really your best helper to get back on your feet quickly and also for reinforcing your immunity system. Also drink a lot of water and sleep well.

And Nakhla Tropicana is good? I haven't tried it personally but I've read some pretty horrible stuff about it.

I know how you feel. I've been fighting off Flu-like symptoms, making it extremely difficult to smoke. I'm going to light up a bowl of Choco-Mint Starbuzz here in about 30 minutes as soon as I get off the crapper. Yeah, I said it. Wrap your mind around that sexy image.

well feeling better today, but still stuffy (i'll bet I wouldn't be so stuffy if I hadn't smoked) but the tropicana is ok, not bad. it has to be a preference thing though. I got it smoking really well, the flavor is a bit like sour pineapple or as some pointed out grapefruit. You'll have to decide for yourself, maybe split a pack with a friend, it's nakhla, it's cheap, and it's worth trying all their flavors at least once.
anyways, i may have to clear the sinuses with some mizo mint today

You just need some good nights sleep with Mr.NyQuil =]
That really gets the job done. Also be sure to use only the liquid ones and not the pills cause the pills don't work as well. DayQuil will help too.
