Default My First Hookah!

Yes, this Monday I bought a hookah for myself and my fiancee. I'm really excited, as from the experience I've had hookahing so far from the lounges, I'll really enjoy it.

I'm not an avid smoker, and have only smoked once that wasn't a hookah (and a rather unpleasant experience at that, not something I'll be doing again).

Anyway, on Monday, after shopping around, I decided upon the 10.5" Melon Tower Hookah from Hooka-Shisha.com. It was small, and had good reviews. Plus, it was in my budget for right now. It came with two 50g Romman samples. I got Vanilla (my fiancee picked) and Ivory Coast (I picked). While there, we also purchased some herbal shisha (Hydro Herbal): Black Widow, Flower Power and les Duex.

Later in the week, after some further reading, I decided to also buy some coals and another bowl. I got some Coco Naras and a vortex.

As of right now, my hookah will be returning home before I do. I'm in the final week of school, and I hop on a plane back to Vegas the 12th. When I get back, I'll swing by Walgreens for a coil burner and hopefully be smoking hookah in no time!

As a new friend to the hookah, I've been doing a lot of research, as I want the best experience possible. I just want to say thank you to everyone who posts such insightful reviews and howtos in the video section and on the forums. Also, any other help would be greatly appreciated.

You won't be disappointed in the cocos or the vortex.

Let us know how the melon tower goes, generally speaking, smaller generic hookahs tend to underperform.

Welcome to the party ^)^.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

And I'm not too terribly worried about the performance because it'll only be used between usually two novice smokers. Hopefully in the near future, I'll have upgraded to a slightly better setup, perhaps a Mya of some kind.

I don't know that much either, I admit. However, he does lots of research, so I am sure that we will soon know everything we need to.

basically you inhale thru your mouth...and then slowly push the smoke out with your tongue, cheeks, and throat contractions while you inhale thru your nose....believe some people call this the "reverse waterfall" as it looks like a waterfall of smoke going upwards.

That sounds really cool.
He and I are both wind instrument players, so we have good breathing technique.

Do different inhalations make a better experience?

@Drumr: Thanks! I look forward to it~

Umm I think u will get different responses on this...as I feel mine is out of the norm. I do throw in a french inhale every now and again...it is a different feel to it....not sure how to explain it...but everyone does different things with inhaling...some do...some don't...some inhale shallowly, some deeply...also depends on what type of moassel you are smoking.

Also I like the french inhale, because it feels like you re flossing your brain with nicotine...mmm.

lol just breathe when you smoke. the experience = the smell, the taste, social atmosphere, your mood. the bridge or waterfall or french inhale or bubble or rings or etc. those are just cool tricks to learn.
