Question Problem... please lend some information

I bought a cheap medium size hookah from my local head shop.. did the job and sucked me right into the world of smoking hookah.. I have been smoking non stop for about 3 months. I smoke last night, got sick.. and gave it another try today and threw up. Not good! I took my hookah apart to clean it like usual and noticed some rust on the top of the dowstream and some rust on the base for the bowl above the ash tray. is there a way to clean it ? and do you think that could be why im getting sick?

... Good thing i got a brand new custom 3' sahara and razan hoses coming in the mail... is this possible with a new and better quality hookah?

Get a cleaning wire brush, mix some lemon juice with baking soda, put on brush, go to town ! Rinse very well several times with water. Solved!

What guarentee do I have you'll give me my information back after you've used it?! Be sure to clean out your hose too. Use an air compressor on your hose, or wash it out if washable

i would bet large amounts of money that the rust is not causing your sickness, probably QLs or to much nicotine or a combination of that.

best way to get rust off is a brilo pad(green scrubby) but it does leave a rougher finish slightly.

but if it is a cheap hookah i would just trash it because if it came easily it will come back

i clean my rig every day i smoke, usually before (because i have been lazy so i dont do it after). i brush it with soap, rinse, fill with vinegar or lemon juice let it sit 15-60 seconds drain, rinse (i use the vinegar/lemon since i have a mya that i cannot brush all the hollow spaces with and the acid slightly etches the metal out)

I remove small amounts of rust with cola.

Simply grab a regular coke, drench a towel in it and let it sit for an hour or so. Scrub away with a toothbrush, ball of tinfoil, or wire brush if its still quite sticky.

have you been using water to clean your hose by any chance? most hoses are NOT washable...

i think your either allergic to something in the tobacco or having a reaction to nicotine, just because you use other tobacco products doesnt mean the nicotine in hookah tobacco will not hit you hard, i know some that get hit hard and some non smokers that can smoke people under the table

It really could still be the nicotine. What tobacco are you using? The nicotine in hookah is actually surprisingly high especially if you chain the hits too fast.

If Starbuzz and AF get you buzzed, then you're smoking too damn fast. Slow down. Take a minute or so between deep drags.
This is not a contest. Hookah is about relaxation.

Sounds like you are chain hitting and giving yourself the fun one two punch of nicotine toxicity and O2 deprivation. It's known as hookah sickness for a reason.

Also whatever Al frakar is you may want to give that a rest. Could be a brand of middle eastern potpourri :P Seriously though. Do you mean Al Fakher?

Yeah man, probably just over-nico'ed yourself. Take a break from hookah for a while, you'll be fine. Rust won't make you sick.

No dude, its definitely the rust. My genie smoked great until it started rusting. Then the same thing started happening to me. i took it apart to check it and a ton of brown rusty water came out. humans arent meant to inhale oxidized metal.
