I think you have not fully lit your coals, get them glowing red, and before you place them on the bowl blow and make sure they are red, after 10 or so minutes rotate them and make the black bit glowing red again.
Also let the coals sit on the bowl for 10 or so minutes before you take you first pull, this helps heat the bowl evenly

Oxygen deprivation and nicotine headache. It's a common occurrence. Slow down and take your time. This usually means you are taking too many pulls too fast. Make sure you are very well hydrated and have eaten something. Don't chain hit as it will cause headaches and burn the tobacco faster.

Possible just the buzz from the tobacco, but you have said you have been smoking for a while. I just know my girlfriend gets headaches sometime but she hardly ever smokes.

There are some exclamation points in there for emphasis that kind of break it up. Then again they are in groups of three and they accompany capslock internet yelling.

Enjoy your nicotine poisoning and oxygen deprivation. That's it. Slow down. A LOT!. Only take one drag every 60 seconds. Then see what you can do from there.

Is it really necessary to pick on someone for their grammar or punctuation? There's no need for a post like this. The next time you feel a need to criticize someone, criticize yourself quietly.

I was thinking the same thing. Since when has this site become a bashing site? where we cant help other hookah smokers because the way they spell or type? everyone should take the crown of there heads which make them feel superior to new members and just help people out. remember we were all once new members!

make sure you have ventilation, the exoticas have been found to give off more CO than other naturals from anecdotal evidence here (people using co detectors when smoking found the exoticas set off the detector which goes off at 100 ppm where the coco style coals end up around 30ish ppm)

the lounges have good ventilation systems where as you residence probably does not, turn on a bathroom fan or a kitchen hood while smoking or open a window.

the head rush sound like nicotine and or co.

also just because you use other tobacco products doesnt mean anything. i have friends that dont use any tobacco and dont smoke hookah much that only really get buzzed from nakhla and tangiers where as others who smoke cigs that get buzzes easily from the washed tobaccos.

it is the method of delivery, cigs deliver is differently than hookah, hookah is deeper and doesnt have the extra chemicals and some people it doesnt affect as much

most of the smokers dont get a lot more of a buzz but some do just because they are not used to the sustained nicotine i think

Are you smoking in a well ventilated area? A small room is alot different from a lounge.
Open a window or turn on a fan to get the air circulating.

And the Exoticas are just fine!

It may be the coals. I love exoticas... I use them in my lounge and I (knock on wood) havent had a problem yet. As always, make sure they are lit fully. Try coconut charcoal. Try a different tobacco. If you were one of my customers... and I really do this... you could come back to my shop and I give a 101 on hookah... I actually have had a few people buy some hookahs and "not get it" at home and they come in and make one in front of me and I point out the good and bad. Basically, go back to the shop and if your guy is cool he'll help you... take your whole set up with you and ask for help.
