Default Headache after Hookah

Lately the last few times I've smoked hookah, I've gotten a pretty healthy headache. I was wondering if this might be from the coals (Belgian Instant-Lite Charcoals, the freebies that came w/ my hookah) or possibly from the tobacco (Layalina). I smoke only occasionally, generally once or twice a weekend, and I definitely have not always felt a headache. I'm sorta clueless, should I maybe look into some natural coals that I hear about or maybe a different brand of tobacco tends to be better. Otherwise I feel I'll just keep taking a few tylenols or something before I smoke as I do enjoy my occasional hookah smoking session.

On another note, maybe it's my weak nicotine tolerance?

search hookah sickness in the forums and you'll see a good write up..

but basically, dont take that many puffs per minute maybe 2 or 3

make sure you are hydrated...that means water not coke or juice or Gatorade or tea or anything besides water

QLs taste horrible to me, but im not sure about them making you sicker

layalina i think is washed a lot, if it was nakhla id understand lol

Wow, thanks for your quick post, I'll look into it. I do tend to notice I'm a little less hydrated after smoking and that I take a lot of puffs at once. Looks like I've got to change a few habits.

yeah for sure go for better coals and for better. and yup it does have to do with your low tolerance of nicotine. get a washed tobacco like starbuzz maybe al waha (still a bit strong but good)

Slow down. a lot of the time other things are blamed but the truth is that many times hookah sickness can be explained by oxygen deprivation and nicotine poisoning. Big scary word but it just mans you went over your tolerance.

MAke sure the QL's are lit ALL THE WAY before you try to use them. that means the Entire thing is read and ashed over. Then they work great!
