hmm I've never used the Af coals before, but Ch don't tend to make you sick.
I guess you just have to got hrough your check list when you smoke.
1.) coals fully lit.
2.) clean hookah and hose.
3.) eat.
4.) Take slow draws, don't chain smoke.
5.) heat management.
6.) Make sure your not smoke like 5 bowls in a row (hahaha).

Other than that if your not used to smoking it could make you sick for a while. I haven't heard of it happening often, but it's possible.
Other wise, good luck.

lol. I am not a noob when it comes to cleaning and lighting coals. I wait for them to be fully ashed over and clean my hookah before and after I smoke. I have been smoking for almost a year and haven't had any issues like this.

So it's just AF then eh?
It just might not be your thing, because if everything else is going right, then you shouldn't have a problem, just might be that your body doesn't like AF? (god forbid)
switch to Nakhla

Some bad AF maybe? I don't have much experience with AF but maybe if you post the flavors and production dates someone can chime in on it.

I love Nakhla, Tangiers, Starbuzz, Ayam Zaman, Fantasia, JMs, and Fumari. AF is the only brand I have this problem with.

AF orange production date = July 09
AF Lemon Mint = October of 08

Both make me sick.

If you must get Al Fakher, get the mint. I know how you feel, most Al Fakher and some Mizo Nakhla favors can go very wrong sometimes and the psychological damage is such that a hint of the smell will make your tummy unease.

I've heard good things about AF Orange lately (newer batches, that is) I'd reccommend AF Strawberry thats a good flavor.

I don't even smoke for an hour. I smoke 2 - 3 times a week. The only time I smoke longer than an hour, is when I have friends over. Trust me, I don't smoke too much. I don't even chain smoke.

AF Strawberry is so gross. It taste like butter imo.
