Default Nicotine Tolerance

Just wanted to get different people's stories about how much and how often you smoked to get your nicotine tolerance up? Right now i smoke about 1 a week or once every two week and still experience heavy buzzes but i hear alot of people don't feel the buzz anymore due to high nicotine tolerance....how often did you guys smoke to gain that tolerance? once a week? Every day? Every weekend?

Why would you perpasly want to get a tolerance to nicotine? Personally i really enjoy the flowty buzz that i get and would never do anything to perposly lose it.

generally, i'll smoke hookah 2-3 times a week, and even if every breath i take for the entire session is from the hookah, it's still very hard to get a buzz at all for me.
I've smoked cigarettes (non menthol) for 5 years. usually around a carton a week (appx 1 1/2 pack a day). for a while, even smoked unfilters.
I'd suggest trying NOT to develop a tolerance, nothing is quite the same as a nice heavy hookah buzz.

Ever since I moved to Cali I've smoke every single day except about 2 weeks ago I missed one day...bummers. But before in Jersey I use to smoke every other day or consecutively some days.

I've been smoking about twice a day for a few months now. My tolerance is way up from when I started. I still get lightheaded sometimes, but I almost don't notice it.

Humm I used to smoke a pack of cigarettes a day! And hookah once or twice a week... Then I started quitting smoking... Now I smoke 3 cigarettes MAX in a day... But days were I have access to my hookah through out the day I'll smoke no cigarettes... And even when I do some lately I can only stomach like 1/2 of one... WHICH IS AWESOME... Cigarette smoking decreased but my hookah smoking increased from like 1-2 times a week, to once a day, to 3-5 times a day... I don't get a buzz... I just do it for the flavor and to take my mind off cigarettes... My boyfriend still gets lightheaded sometimes though...

Maybe I do .

Not sure how my girlfriend would feel about that...

She said she'd rather have me cheat on her with a girl than a guy...
Sorry Zen.


& I don't get buzzed anymore. But I smoke for the social, relaxation & flavor aspect... Not the buzz. I smoke 1-3 bowls a day.

2 bowls a day, djarums maybe a pack a week, and 2 tins of snus every week is my general intake. I snuff maybe every hour at work too, I have good tolerence but I do still get some monster buzzes =D

I smoking shisha about 3 times mon to fri, and about 5 times at the weekend. I gave up ciggs and like good snuff as well. It is all depends to weahter, if I'm tired or didn't eat anything. I don't always get buzz from normal molasses but tangiers noir style is too strong for me. LOL
Also I often go to toilet after aboot 15min of smoking. Hyhy. I think that is reaction for nicotine...

I smoke usually once a day, and still every now and then get a buzz. Depends on if it's just me, how I manage my heat, the shisha, and if i've eaten anything.

The reason why i asked the question was because i am afraid of losing the buzz.....a nice heavy buzz is a big part of the hookah experience for me.......hey hookahstore you said Zag really gave you a buzz....is that Nakhla Zaghloul?
