Default Need Some Help

Hey I'm Steve, just signed up here. Been a big fan of Sam's youtube videos and i've been smoking hookah for about 2 years. I don't own a hookah but have many friends that do and i smoke with them pretty often. Im saving up some cash and i hope to get my own soon. My dilemma is i have very few "good" times smoking hookah. We usually smoke from a 4 hose 22 inch hookah. No idea of the brand or style. 100% of the time the smoke becomes very bad tasting. We have not found a good enough solution so we make due. We use starlight quick start coals.

Im looking for a good list of what i need to do to have a great hookah experience when i buy mine. I don't wanna screw anything up from the first day i set it up for a smoke. There are always learning experiences, but i wanna host hookah sessions better than my friend currently does. Too many of my friends smoke to think their cool, i smoke for a pleasurable time and a good taste, like most of you guys.

Any tips or guides will help! Thanks.

first of all don't use quick-light coals. they contain an "accelerant" which is basically gunpowder and gasoline, which makes them light quick. use a natural coal, my favorites are coconut coals (******* hookah, shishaco) or exoticas.

use a tobacco that's not shitty. i'm assuming your friends use starbuzz. try some nakhla.

buy a dependable rig, such as a khalil maamoun, al-fakher solid, or a temsah.

all of these products can be found at **********.com, and if you have any questions about his stuff just ask him, he's a member here and he's a great dude to deal with.

Yeah well here are my handicaps. I don't have easy access to a credit/debit card so buying online, out of the question for now =\. Theres a shop a few towns over from me that sells hookahs, shisha etc. They mainly sell AF shisha and im not sure about their hookahs. Bowls/hoses are limited. So am i screwed? Internet has so many nice hookahs and none of them are available to me.

You should try to find a friend that will let you use his/her card and you just pay them cash. I have a local hookah shop that has good stuff, but I still prefer buying everything online, I only buy from the local shop when I need some small things but when I got big orders I go online.

if you really want to buy online and said friend wont let you use their card, go to your local walgreens and buy a greendot card, it's 4.95 to activate and you can use it to buy online. you can put up to $500.00 on it.

Store you're shisha at room temp. As for good shisha. Nahkla or alfahquer is some of the best stuff you just need to check out the review section to see where you should start. Cause for shish around here you will get many mixed feelings on brands
