Epic = Syrup of ipecac

I have found that eating grapes between pulls really helps. Eat about 4 to 5 grapes 1 by 1 between pulls. it gives a good time spacer so you don't smoke too fast.

It wouldnt hurt trying some Al Fakher too because that has low nicoteen in it, so it will reduce the chances of you getting headaches.

Before yo said when your buddy sets up it's good, but when you do it's bad. Maybe you're setting up wrong. Did you watch him?

Same here but it's wise to buy a small quantity of something to try, then if you don't like it so its not a waste. I'm not going to buy a kilo of SB Code 69 to try only realize it tastes like a stripper and throw the other 975g of it in the trash.

ok;
1- follow the fully lit coals advice
2- watch your friend set up
and
3- Al Fakher has the same nicotine percentage as Afzal and Nakhla, which is 0.5% so sorry bremen, but that was just BS XD

I get a headache from it too, and I use herbal shisha. My coals are all natural and I use as little of them as I can. For me, I think it's just from the carbon monoxide of smoking a material that is burning. Maybe you should just try taking a few more breaths in between sucking on the hose.

for future reffernce don't ever buy bulk of coals unless you have tested them first... I found golden coals from hookah-shisha.com are probably the best quick light that i have found... you probabaly will want to go with natural coals in the long run for both health reasons and it doesn't effect the flavor as much, but as far as convinece i swear by golden coals over three kings(which was designed for incense origanaly)... but water will probably be your best friend if this is a common issue for you...

I have tried several different natural coals and I seem to get the headaches with each one, even letting them fully ash over. Personally I am going back to QL's, probably the CH QL.

seems like it's the coals to me as well, be sure they ash completely before smoking. It could also be how you're smoking, washed or unwashed tobacco. If I chain pull it usually gives me a headache.
