Default sneaking smoking hookah.

I live with my parents who are fairly strict about smoking indoors. outdoors not so much since it wont stink up the place.

My problem is, its winter. My room is in the basement, and I was wondering, if i smoked indoors will the smell of the smoke travel through the vents to the upstairs?

I'm not too concerned about the smell affecting my room since i know hookah smell doesnt linger on as bad as cigarettes do. But im just concerned about my parents being able to smell my sessions upstairs.

My parents are the same way. I smoke in the basement. Idk how many floors your house is... but when I smoke in the basement you can sometimes smell it on the floor above the basement.... but not usually the floor above that. Idk if that helps. And if you keep the doors close sometimes you can barely smell it on the floor above. I usually just do it when they are asleep and the smell is gone when they get up in the morning. Good luck.

My parents are against me smoking indoors as well, but when I do smoke indoors they almost never notice, only when they walk in and see me xD
And my room is on the same floor as their room/the living room.

Is it worth dealing with the grief you will get? If not, just build a fire and/or put on some clothes. Enjoy the winter wonderland and put some snow in the base.

I got to agree with hookahslisk...hookah is an amazing thing, but will it be worth the crap your parents give you about it? ....or would it just be easier to head outside? Just think, your not going to live at home forever....maybe just postpone the inside sessions.

oh don't get me wrong guys im not going to try to rebel and just flat out start smoking inside against my parents wish. I was just wondering if it were possible. At the moment i am still postponing my indoor sessions till the weather warms up. But i do still smoke hookah indoors at my friends house. The point of the thread was just for me to see if it were possible.

I am not a fan of deception. If you live someplace that does not allow smoking for any reason then just respect it. I live in an apartment where smoking is a no go. I have never smoked in my living space. I have been smoking for around three years and it has always been at friend's houses.

If they are just iffy about the smell try to reason with them. If you go behind their backs and lie to them you are just hurting yourself in the long run. They will be less apt the negotiate and will be more convinced that you don't have the self control necessary to deny addictive and detrimental effects.

If you are straight forward and respectful you will get much farther than being deceitful and ending up in the inevitable argument and mess.

I am along the same lines here. I smoke outside when I can find a window in the seasons but I have simply put smoking on hold because my parents were kind enough to offer me a room and put food on the table. I just prefer not to rock the boat because to be honest I have a good situation here and don't want to loose this over something like trying to go behind their backs. Yes it is possible but just be aware of the risks.

My parents feel the same way about indoor smoking when I'm at home (next year at school I'm finally moving out of dorms and can smoke indoors whenever I want). But a good trick is to take a fan and put a dryer sheet on the back (so that it gets "sucked" by the fan's intake) and the room will smell like pure downy freshness in <1 minute.

AMEN kalutika!!! its true respect the owners and the house. but if you do i would light up some incense or a candle which wouldnt make the smell to bad, i do smoke in my room also and i dont have a problem leaking out to other parts of the house, then again i open up the window when i do. but since there is soo much smoke that comes out you really cant say if it will or will not go through the vents and into the other rooms. so i would just disguise the smell instead of trying to hide it. febreez, candles, or incense.

Coal smell is more potent than the shisha smell, less you let it burn... I'd say isolate your room, block the vents.. And run a fan and spray some air spray, like febreeze or pledge or whatever.. Or wear a jacket and smoke outside.

I smoke in my apartment on the days I'm off from work, and its not that big. The only smell that gets trapped in is some Cinnamon on the couch, other than that any one i have over can't tell, or thinks its a candle.

I smoke in my basement with my parents upstairs. Since the scent of the shisha isn't at all like cigarettes, I think you can pull off with just telling them it's incense. Be careful with the coals, though, that will give you away in an instant. Light them in a well ventilated area, and bring them to your hookah when they are completely red hot.

its your parents house, their roof their rules, respect their wishes. its better to ask them and try and work out a deal than to just go around their back. is it worth it to get kicked out? or to not be able to smoke any where inside or out side.

find a friend's place, smoke outside, or deal with it. my parents dont want smoking inside so i dont smoke inside when i am back home, simple.

Have you smoked in the house before? Have they ever smelled the smoke? I think the thing that they would smell most would be the coals starting up. If they haven't smelt it in the house, I would just try and ask them I could do it once, just to let them see what it's like. It doesn't have any tar, which I think is what stains the walls? But just try and reach an agreement on it. Don't push it too far if they aren't budging though.
