Default First Real Experience

OK guys, I got my hookah today and following all the intructions,videos, an tutorials from memebers of this forum I set it up.

MYA QT 2 Hose. Shisha: Al-Amir Mixed Fruit, and 3 Shishaco QuikLights. The MYA QT Rocks...It made so much smoke and the flavor of the Shisha wa really nice too. The bad part is that after 15 minutes I was feeling dizzy as hell, I also started sweating cold and my head was numb.

The Hookah worked great, excelent flavor and smoke. But the effects were not very desirable (I'm still feeling my stomach a little weird). I don't know if it was because I took a hit after another very quickly. I've smoked at my friends houses with their own crapy chinese hookahs and never felt like this. Today I was smoking alone.

I need a lot of help here. First I need to know what caused this effects and how -the next time- I don't have them again.

Second, now that I'm done should I wash my hookah? If that is the case, can I use dish soap or just water Do I have to wash the hoses as well? What about the bowl, should I wash it? cause it looks really messy..

All the help will be much apreciated.

Thanks!

First off don't wash the hoses, just blow them out. Run some warm water through your downstem and rinse out the base.

As to your sickness make sure you eat before a session, I tend to snack while in the midst of my session. Also chain hitting can cause a queezy feeling. Make sure your coals are completely lit and ashed over if they aren't you are inhaling carbon monoxide and thats no good. Just trial and error dude lol I'm glad you enjoyed it

First thing is that all Myas are Chinese. As to your problems well for one don't use QL but some decent natural coals instead and you'll need a hot plate to start them. Next taking pulls in rapid succession is a good way to get CO poisoning which is what it sounds like what happened to you. Beyond that read the following and you'll enjoy smoking a lot more: http://www.hookah-life.com/blog/cat/...bly-10-31-2007

I agree with Hajo. This happens to me everytime I use quicklights. I haven't tried the ******* Hookah quicklights yet (I have some on the way though), but I hear that if you are going to use QL coals, these are the only ones that you should use.

Using quicklights for me makes it worse, but the CHQL and similar coals arent grouped in that bunch for me.

make sure to stay properly hydrated before and during the smoke session - if youre drinking something else, cool, just have a glass of water there.

do not exceed 4 inhalations per minute, especially if you are a noobie, if you can the good for you, just limit yourself to 4 initially and work from there.

bojangles wrote up something nice about this a while back

as for part 2. there are vids on how to clean a hookah, sam has one that even uses beer to clean a hookah.

dont use soap on glass, baking soda and water....... for stem, use water and the brush, every now and then add baking soda to the water, run it through, cap one end, add some lemon juice and scrub...

never wash a hose unless it is a washable hose (most are not washable!)
