Default Feeling sick after smoking hookah?

This has happened to me a few times after smoking. I get an intense buzz, then afterwards I feel like throwing up, my head hurts, and I get really depressed and unmotivated to do anything. I don't know if it's just me or something...anyone else experience this?

I usually notice that this happens when I smoke cheaper shisha that tastes kind of chemmy (chemical...y) and ESPECIALLY when it gets harsh. I end up coughing, and my buzz goes CRAZY and I get dizzy. Then after the buzz goes away, I'm left laying on my bed feeling like death. It's the exact opposite from when I smoke good, quality shisha. Usually I chill hardcore and just want to sit around with my friends and talk about whatever comes up in conversation. Currently I'm sitting with a window open trying to get some fresh air...listening to some Iron & Wine because his music always calms me and makes me feel happy inside.

Any input?

haha, I ended up getting some energy up to clean up...pulled the bowl off and it is HARDCORE burned. I must have been smoking straight tobacco. Thing is, I was smoking al-waha...and it didn't have much flavor to begin with...so I couldn't tell that all of the flavoring was pretty much done for.

I'm done playing around with cheap shisha. I bought an ass load of al-waha because my local shop was selling it on the cheaaaap...worst mistake I've made. I should've just bought a can of starbuzz like I usually do. Mad fail, that's for sure.

I also don't smoke cigarettes either...so maybe the comedown from the buzz is what's doing me in. Thing is, I get a buzz from better shisha and I love it! no comedown or anything...just a few minutes of "WOOO! I'm dizzy and things are a lot funnier than they should be!" not this al-waha "woooo......I feel like dying" crap

yeah al waha is garbage. pack the bowl a little less. shisha should not touch the foil unless you are doing the naklha over pack method. other then that your destroying your session

Make sure you are getting enough water while smoking. Always keep a bottle of water at hand. And if you are using an Egyptian bowl or a regular ceramic you could double foil the bowl, it'll help it last a bit longer.

It is the nicotine sickness Al Waha is stronger than Starbuzz that is why it is kicking your butt so hard. So slack off give times between pulls and no you wont get the clouds Starbuzz gives it is not swimming in glycerin like Starbuzz

So relax and smoke slowly and you should be ok drink water and make sure to eat something before a session.

So stop hoovering the hookah.

When I had it, it was the coals... I was using instant coals, since I got Coacanaras, I never get that

Make sure your coals are completely ashed over prior to putting on your bowl and taking a pull.

Sometimes I get this after a long 6 hour session with 6-8 bowl packs to myself. It usually helps to keep hydrated and get good quality tobacco. And definitely don't char your shit like that haha

Only time I experienced this was AF Bubble Gum. Nothing burned at the end of the session just a flavor that didn't agree with me.

Glos hit it right on. However, mine wasn't from that, so there is a 10% chance that it may not settle with you.

As people have mentioned, try to drink and snack when smoking. Also, make sure that the room you are smoking in isn't really small and has some ventilation. You don't wanna get CO poisoning, which is what your describing sounds like.

+have soemthing hydrating to drink (water, or such, soda isnt really a hydrating drink, go with tea or juice)
+make sure coals are completly ashed over ( non ready coals can lead to Carbon Dioxide posioning)
+take it easy!!!! (if you smoke to much to quickly, you may not realise you are depriving your body of oxygen)
+if your feeling in any way diffrent then how you started slow down, and take a breather, get a drink. (shisha sickness can hit you fast, even seasoned smokers can get hit by it if the body isnt ready for it, although light headedness is common "buzz" you should still slow down)
+have a full stomech (empty belly can get you sick quick)
+dont drink the vase water (no matter how thirty you are, it doesnt taste as good as the smoke)
+dont move around to much while smokeing (it can make you go from bad to worse quickly, or from pleasantly relaxed to nauseous )

it isnt hard to stay healthy while smokeing, but it is importent, shisha sickness, co posioning, lack of oxygen can all have sudden on sets of bad bad joo joo, from just general not well feeling to more serious vomiting and loss of conciseness. always smoke with care, and like i said above. if you are feeling just a little off, make sure your well hydrated, well fed, and most importently sitting down!

actually it comes from inspiration of old lony toon cartoons, something happens that forces characer one to become very thirsty (sand in mouth, ate somehting on fire, ate a pepper, ect) and would grab the first thing liqud he saw, which was often something very unpleasent.

ql's seem to have alot more people saying this, i normally let all ql's (especially cheap ones) burn a few minutes longer on teh stove (i light all my coals ql or not on a coil burner) some qls are just so drenched with chemical to light that it takes longer to burn off.

Take deep breaths of fresh air befor big pulls. This technique alone alleviates any dizzy sick feelings I used to get. Food and water help befor hand also. Try not to do it dehydrated.

I had a smoke two days ago and woke up with chest pains
I was drinking water while smoking and also had a hearty meal.
The thing is it was a very very smoky bowl (starbuzz blue mist) I had and I enjoyed it while having it
no signs of symtoms or burning of tobacco. I was having a couple of drinks aswell some southern comfort
and coke so my mouth and throat were a bit numb if you know what I mean thus could pull longer and harder on the nargile creating huge clouds.

My lungs/chest feel raped the day after and today.
Gonna give nargile smoking a break for a week atleast as when
I inhale my lungs/chest has a inconvineint kinda stabbing pain right near my ribcage below nipple :P
Any advice?

well as far as i know coca cola, or any other soda for that matter, should have no negitive effect on you. my best guess is maby something you ate or brank that day may have been bad, and you were suffering from that.
