Default hello all!

well i am new, and this is my first post. i have got, well, not the best hookah but it suits my needs. for now i only have nahkla strawberry and double apple. but that is not the point of my post :P first of all i would like to present myself. i live in nyc and have been smoking hookah for a month now. i love every single session! i smoke to relax and to spend some good times with friends. usually smoke on the terrace of my building, but with the cold months coming in, and my parents not knowing i have a hookah. (it is hidden in a very secret place :P) i was wondering if it smelled allot. if i open the window and have a pine smelling candle, hey don't laugh it is relaxing :P, will it be overwhelming, or will the smell disappear within an hour. no one smokes in my family so they are not use to the smell. and it would really be a bummer to not be able to smoke as often. great to be part of a community you all look very friendly, and look forward to sharing my problems with you guys. lmao.
cya all,

welcome. youll find this is a very welcoming place.

heh, you should invite your parents to smoke it with you! my friend's mom found out about our hookah after we forgot the coal was burning and lit the kitchen trash can on fire. she didnt really care though; she was really interested by the hookah!

the only thing that really smells is the coal when you first light it....you should open a window or something for that.

I know a lot of people don't want to hear this but frankly am completely against minors smoking anything. They simply don't have the aesthetic sophistication to get much out of it and they lack knowledge to reasonably weigh the risks involved.

And how exactly is it that we know that he is underage?? And how is it that either one of your posts are helpful? Even if he is underage, he says he's been smoking hookah for a couple of months. Meaning, he has been and he is going to continue smoking regardless of your opinion on the matter. Instead of posting pointless things, we should try and answer any questions he might have...

Anyway, age set aside, welcome to the forum! You'll find A LOT of helpful information around here, so just make sure to do your research and use that search button...About the smell, you really shouldn't worry. Hookah smoke never stinks your clothes or any other fabric like cigarettes do... I've smoked inside my house with all doors and windows closed, and my parents and also friends have walked in literally a couple of minutes later, and they have no idea that I was smoking (my parents don't know I smoke either). The good thing about hookah smoke, is that it never stays around... It quickly vanishes.

If he is not a minor I withdraw my comments. I don't hope to change his behavior in any case but I think that what is not helpful is to condone violating the laws about about minors and smoking which is what we do when advice and implicit approval is offered to under-aged smokers. Frankly, I don't want to give anti-smoking forces more ammo to use against us.

If he is not under-aged I say the thing to do is to tell his parents about it and give them a little lecture about the wonders of our hobby. I do think that most non-smokers will notice the smell and it will cause problems so best get it out in the open.

We know because he came into the chat room and explained how he was 15 years old.
Umm his Hookah is hidden in a very special secret place? May parentís donít know?

I assume you're asking how do we know because you didn't read the post he left.

by the way the Hookah belongs to his 20 year old brother who is away at college.

If you care about the forum, don't argue the point - help protect it.

so neither of you two ever drank a drop of alcohol, saw any porn, or smoked a cig while you where underage? that is getting pretty rare in todays world especially the porn one. just answer the questions he has and continue living your life, the world still spins even if he is underage on the forum. you can be against it and do one of two things. you can drive up to his house, knock on the door and tells his parents he smokes and then turn whoever sold the tobacco since it was going to a minor or whoever bought it for him or you can sit down and shut up about the issue. i say you have to go over to his house because a phone call sure as hell wont do much unless you know exactly who he is, where he lives, and who he bought the tobacco from and evidence it happened and have the police see it happening but then again you would need this information to go do that stuff in person in the first place.

mahir you got an at least 70% chance you sold to a minor with or without your knowledge so if you are going to be against him being on the site then you need to go to the police and get your 500 dollar fine and misdemeanor, repeated time once within the first year is a 1000 dollar fine and another misdemeanor, 2000 for your second time, a suspension on your retail permit for 20 days on your third time, and losing your license on the fourth time. all of that for sale of tobacco to minors in florida.

nyc_hookah welcome to the site. if it was honestly 2 people using the account and one of which is overage welcome to the site. if your underage all the more power to you and welcome to the site. you may be banned if your underage but its basically enforcing the rules to avoid legal trouble such as listed above for what happens if a vendor sells to a minor in florida. plenty of good information on the site with just reading around and if you have any questions feel free to ask them, some people list their SN on messenger clients for the purpose of helping people more in person rather than waiting for a reply also that way its a way to be out of possibly causing trouble on the site.

No, I never did any of those things until I was 19. Porn is vapid, evil and boring so i've never bothered with it. Still, it wouldn't matter if I did because as an adult that enjoys a an increasingly oppressed hobby I am smart enough to know that encouraging illegal behavior is a good way to get this site and the hobby as a whole in trouble. I also believe my earlier comments about why minors should not smoke are perfectly sensible.

Thanks for clearing the matter up. Basically, smoking anything inside will be noticed by 9 out of 10 non-smokers and not much of anything will get rid of the smell to satisfy most non-smokers. What can do is look for the anti smoke candles that thompson cigar sells as I understand they mask the smell of tobacco pretty well.

In the end, your parents will notice that you are smoking so it makes more sense to just be open about it and hope the best.

Thank you Boomhauer...I couldn't have said it better myself! Just because he hides his hookah in a "secret place" and just because his parents don't know, doesn't mean crap! Guess what, my parents don't know I smoke hookah either, and as such I have to constantly keep it hidden from them. Does this mean I'm underage? NO, as a matter of fact I'm 22. I just don't want to tell my parents because my mother works at a hospital, and she would never let the subject go if she found out that I smoked. So don't be too quick to judge just because he has to keep it a secret from his parents.

And on the smell thing, I really don't know how 9 out of 10 people would smell hookah smoke in a living rom after a couple of minutes of the session being over...Like I said, I've had my non smoking parents, as well as non smoking friends, walk into my house LITERALLY 10 minutes after I just finished having a session. And they never had the slightest clue that there had been any smoke present whatsoever... To the OP: if you want to be safe, just test it out with a friend...have him/her walk in 10 minutes after you just finished smoking, and put his/her nose to the test...

The rest of your post, I'm just not going to read. has nothign ot do with Mahir's intention nor does it have anything to do with mine.

Made a comment in this post but i stand corrected by my friend - sorry.

Anyway...
Hey if SamB is cool with someone under age being on his forum then no sweat. but I was just trying to protect SamB and his forum.
All I kow is when I signed up - it said you had to be 18.

nyc_hookah has been banned with an explanation why ...

"Under the age of 18, sorry but it is against the rules here, as this forum is for discussion of tobacco. As per the rules and registration it clearly states that a user must be 18 or over. Sorry"
