Default Hookah = CURE?

Hey guys, today I had a runny nose, sore throat, and a stuffy nose. After I smoked like 2 batches my noise was nice and clear and my sore throat went away. My friend told me hookah helps colds but I didn't think this was possible. How insane is hookah?

cough drops in the vase help a sore thought.

the menthol from the cough drops get released so that does actually work

When you have a cold you put a humidifier in your room, which basically is a machine that pumps water vapor into the air. Hookah 'smoke' is about 99% water vapor, so perhaps this makes sense?

This is true, the other night my lady had a head cold and after smoking some af mint mixed with mm peach she was no longer stuffed up. It's funny cause we joked about the same thing right before our session. Placebo or not it worked

Im not sure coz when I smoke it dont do anything to me.

Plus when I get a cold (like now) with a sore throat, it seems like when I smoke, the shisha dont taste right so I try and not smoke until I get better. I feel that when your ill, your taste and other senses are not working at their best.

But maybe thats just me.

Smoking will irritate your upper respiratory system, even if its just hookah, even if its mint. you wont get sicker, but you will probably prolong the sickness even if the mint clears you out initially.

I was sick earlier this week because I had to take a flu mist, (army makes you) and as usual, i still had flu symptoms, it just wasnt a surprise to me. but at least now i wont get swine flu again

What I do is give the hookah a break until im better, and just drink lots of water and make sure to use a nettipot to clear out my sinuses. ever since i was supposed to have my tonsils taken out because of sinus infections that spread into a tonsil infection, thats done the trick for me, havnt had tonsilitis in over a year now, so im happy!

nicotine can also act amoung other things as an anti inflamte...spelling...makes things swell less, like mucels and such, for instence after a bowl of hookah my authritis pain subsides dramaticly.

since alot of the cold is inflamation this would help.
