Default Little help please?

So i have a 39 inch 3 hose KM with the ice chamber. Just got my vortex bowl and have probably smoked this hookah 50+ times with a buddy and it has been AMAZING. I am smoking it for the first time alone and i cant seem to get it cool enough, every pull seems to be too strong. What should i try, maybe 2 coals instead of 3. It has only been different smoking by myself.

Strong as in too much smoke ? - Less coal
Strong as in Harsh and hurts your throat ? - Less coal or Tobacco is burning from touching the foil
Strong as in too much flavor ? - Bitch please.

Also, you'll get a cooler smoke much more efficiently by adding ice to the water in the base than you will putting ice in the chiller.

Haha, nice! Yeah, try three coals at first to heat it up and take one off after it warms up. Or two coals with a wind cover.

yea its seems to be all heat thats alll thats making sense to me right now. due to the fact that its just one person and not multiple, i think there isnt as much air flo anymore and the shisha is having too much time to get too hot too fast. manage your coals more efficiently or use less heat to begin with

+1 to rob. Less air getting through the bowl is causing it to heat up faster. Take off the coal, let the shisha rest for a few minutes, then try again w. less coal.

You can also take the bowl off and blow into the bottom of it, to help cool it off faster. But use a cloth or another barrier so you don't burn the crap out of your hand.
