Default Having off Days...

Anyone else every have "off days" in regards to their hookah sessions? I'm just coming out of being sick with upper respiratory infection for the last week and couldn't wait but to get back to my nightly hookah routine. Almost eveyr bowl has been an epic fail this week. Can't get my AF to smoke right, hell even Fumari and Starbuzz have been pissing me off. Am I crazy?

try and pack your bowl and do everything slow and perfect so you can make sure it was done right.. your body might be tired from fighting the infection and not letting you think clearly lol

I have those days too,sometimes by the week.
There have been sessions where I just want to throw in the towel and say to heck with it.
As for being creatures of habit,we will try and try again.( tobacco tastes to good to give up). Like Madhatter says your body might be tired from fighting the infection and not letting you think clearly and just trying to hard.

i just came off of my little streak of bad bowls... it started because i decided to go into my stack of 50g packs and i smoked al waha memories and it was terrible, then i smoke al waha apple and was the worst, then i wanted to redeem myself and smoked nahkla sweet melon and it wasn't tasting right and giving me a headache, so i switch too starbuzz sweat melon and it didn't smoke right also...and mind you this was like in a 2 week spand so i was almost ready to just quit hookah-ing for a good. But i bought myself a can of blue mist and it smoked great and now im back into my old routine... sometimes you get those losing streaks, its just you need that one flavor to pick you back up.

Surprisingly enough I get the best sessions when I'm not paying much attention to how I pack the bowl. Lately I've been overpacking the vortex (above the spire holes, not the crazy 30g-50g overpacks per se) with nak, both regular and mizo, and I've been having the best smokes, there is an increase in buzz factor, but the flavor and clouds are that much better. I can relate to bad streaks of sessions though, but they've mainly been due to shitty tobacco.

Wow, pretty much everyone's personal insight matches that of what I'm going through. Usually I do actually write it off with "bad batches" but it really sucks when ALL your stash doesn't smoke like you want it to. MAD_HATTER had a really good point though, I think I'm physically and emotionally exhausted. Buttload going on at work, still sick, multiple side projects, 7th day of work today, no "jake" time, apparently = Shitty hookahs.. LOL.

Thanks for the lift in spirit, at least I know I'm not the only one now.

I seem to have similar problems this week. If anyone saw my AF cardamom review, I raved about it. It was amazing for me. then it happened: I smoked a bowl the other day, and my friend is new to hookah (Dirty Hippy John, AKA hookah Slave, AKA my own personal Lurch- You rang?) packed the bowl and IDK what he did to it, but it burned like all hell and I just threw the coals outside, stomped on them in a rage and came back inside and played Mass Effect 2, shooting everything in sight. Hopefully, my valentines day bowl with my sweetie will work out a little better.

I've noticed this about AF these days too. WHAT THE HELL right? Just opened up a new pack of Peach and Coconut and getting MAD throat tingle and it's just burning quicker than it usually does. Stars maybe not inline for the AF gods?

Out of curiosity, how is everyone packing their AF in vortex bowls these days? Fluffy? Tight?

I have off days aswell. In think its because you forget your routine when you havnt smoked in a while but I usually get it back after getting one bowl wrong.

Hmmm, not something I want to be reading. I am on the back end of being sick, any day now I should be fine. I hope I don't experience this as well.
