Default What is you're hookah history? :O

(SMOKING HOOKAH)
I've been smoking for 3 years. I come from a family of smokers. My mother has been smoking for ~4-7 years.

My god mother has been smoking for 10+ years
My god mothers husband has been smoking for over 18 years!! He now owns a lounge.

Now, for the past few weeks i've been going to the lounge and smoking with him, learning new things and actually liking what i learn.
He gave me some ideas for some upcoming videos actually. Feels good to know that i come from a family of Hookah Smokers =]

tell me how you got into hookah and how long you have been smoking

I ran across hookah my Freshman year of college. I was so excited to try something new. I loved it so much that I had to buy my own immediately. That was four years ago.

I started smoking cigars close to three years ago. I tried western pipes shortly after that.

I had a friend that owned a hookah but he used it for something other than hookah tobacco, so I refused to smoke with him even though the offer was daily. It seemed so nice. Eventually I got to smoke hookah with nothing but tobacco in the bowl and I never looked back.

Bought a three hose rotator from H-S and it treated me fairly well for what it was. As I learned more I realized it's short comings.

I joined this forum and learned some amazing things. I have been an active member ever since and plan on being one for a long time.

Eventually I bucked up and bought a Nour Syrian. Pretty much stopped using the rotator entirely. My Nour is still one of my favorites.

Later I bought my KM Double Trimetal which is still my most recent aquisition.

My first hookah memory was at a goth event that had a hookah garden set up outside the building. I met my boyfriend (still with him for 4+ years now) there and he showed me how to hold your thumb over the hose so the other person could smoke. Now he doesn't even smoke with me at home! I was wearing shoes so big I could hardly walk in them, causing me to trip and knock over two hookahs. (eep!) Later in the night I sat down on what I thought was a bench, (everything was covered in rugs and blankets) but it turned out to be a table with a hookah on it and I knocked that over, too. Needless to say, it was SUPER embarrassing.

We used to go to Oasis, a local lounge by ASU. The music there was much too loud, and the food was terrible but it was awesome just because they didn't ID me to get in lol.

We got our first hookah (a small chinese)a few months later from a friend. He lived with his parents, who didn't appreciate him smoking, so he just gave it to us. It disappeared in a move a while later, but by that time we had already purchased our second hookah, which was an awesome custom blown glass one made by a friend of ours. It was thin glass, though and it was broken when our cat knocked it over. I went without a hookah for about a year and a half, then I got the one I have now. It's a big chinese, but it smokes well enough for me. I also have a pumpkin that I just got in - I ordered a different mini-hookah but the website I got it from royally screwed up my order so I'm stuck with it. :P

I used the pumpkin in line for black friday, however, which was pretty neat. I've also taken it to work a couple of times now.

No one in my family ever smoked hookah. Being that I was a nice goody two shoes growing up, smoking hookah was my one vice I was willing to do.As I was a freshman in high school when I first started smoking and for close to 8 years I smoked with my friends at this one location... we saw the place go through 5 owners and two re-modelings. My father who was never one to smoke hookah, just cigars and pipe tobbaccy, wound up getting lung cancer and passing away. This wasn't a deterrent for my smoking surprisingly. I Adopted my friends generic Chinese rotator in college and another friend bought a mya qt to leave at my house. over the years I have acquired another hookah (mya bohemian) and made 3 of my own. Though I haven't purchased any I now have 6 hookahs. Out of the 6, surprisingly we smoke the Qt and one of my homemade rigs the most( http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15614 ).

To be honest, I've only been smoking hookah since I became a member here, back in September. It has become something of an obsession. I have however been smoking tobacco regularly for close to 30 years. I remember that the first time I smoked, my mother was still alive. She died when I was 10 years old and I'm turning 43 this Friday. I went through a period of brier pipe smoking about 15 years ago and have had an itch to try it again. Never been a big fan of cigars, but I will say I've had a few that I've enjoyed.

My brother gave me my first hookah for my 28th bday. I didnt use it very often. It was a cheapy chinese type hookah. It smoked good for what it was though. I still cant find the coffee flavor i had.

I have recently really gotten into it cause i stopped smoking cigs, so i needed an alternative. LMAO

The first time I smoked was at my friend's high school graduation party. Then about 2 weeks ago my and my friends went to a hookah bar/lounge. We loved it sooo much that we ordered a Mya QT and Nammor hose. I can't wait until it gets here!

My father and grandfather were both pipe smokers. Naturally i started smoking a pipe when i as a teenager. I've smoked a pipe for 25 years, and cigars for 20, not surprising, considering i was a professional tobacconist for 20 years. I was exposed to hookah at a Tobacconist trade show and was immediately smitten. That was 11 years ago. Christ, I'm old.

Word. you dont need alcohol to have a good time

I was at a party when I was in High school and seen it there. Smoked it and loved it. I smoked it all the time when I was at that persons party. Loved it since then. Little did I know that hookah got a lot better when you used good tobacco and cleaned your hookah which I soon found out after I bought my own. Either way I must have started 4 or 5 years ago.

My now good friends, formerly upstairs apartment neighbors introduced me to hookah. At this time (5 yrs ago, I still smoked ciggs) which made me not really like the taste and feeling of hookah. Used to smoke hookah casually with them while playing halo lol. When I finally quite smoking ciggs about 3 yrs ago, I started easing into smoking hookah and it's been a great way to keep my mind off of ciggs and focused on the chill hookah experience.
