Smile Getting bored, tips needed please

Hey guys

I have smoking Hookah for about one and a half years (about 3 - 4 times a month) and I am slowly getting bored...

I need some innovative ideas to give Hookah-ing new life. What I have been doing until now to get the best smoke:

Ice in the vase
Put pipe in freezer for 5 mins
Tried a lot of flavors
Cutting rough Shisha with scissors for better "burn"

We have not really tried something other than water in the vase. Don't know what to put in (most of the times we just don't have what is on the net, like weird types of juices etc).

I am also having a lot of trouble with heat control, sometimes the shisha burns and soetimes the smoke is not dense enough. We use tinfoil with many small holes and quite large quick lighting coles (impossible to find naturals here in my area). I also get a huge headaches almost every time I hookah, and yes we do let the coals start properly...

So can anyone give me some tips on how to spice up Hookah-ing? Some tips on heat control and the headaches would also be appreciated.

Thanx

@ tapatio10floz

Yes we have tried juices like once or twice but the difference in taste was so subtle it seems useless to us. And no we haven't tried mixing shisha, I'm going out later to buy some (like in 30 mins), so what do you recommend or a good mix?

@ alanpeterson68

Thanx man, that looks like a very fun and unique idea!

Talking Re: Getting bored, tips needed please

what kind of coals are you using? Quick lights or natural coals?[LIST][*]If it starts to burn try packing the bowl less because it sounds like the shisha is touching the tinfoil.[*]Try using a windcover, it helps to heat the bowl more evenly.[*]A lot of people on the fourm use 3 coals to start the bowl then take one off and use a windcover for the rest of the sesh. This strategy can give you bowls that last up to 2hrs.[*] Make sure your coals are 100% lit, if you are using Ql's and notice that they are giving you headaches it is usually because they are not lit all the way.[/LIST]

@ alanpeterson68

Yes we are using quick lights, and we light them all the way (like ash has started forming all around). I'll try using a wind cover today (totally forgot I have one since we smoke inside a lot more that outside).

Maybe it is the brand of quick lights I'm using, I'll have a look at some other brands now when I go buy shisha.

Any shisha suggestions?

I am a huge fan of mint!! I mix pretty much everything with a little bit of mint.

Af watermelon + Af mint
Tangerine/orange + vanilla= orange creamsicle
Sonic Special = Lemon + Cherry + mint
Razzletazzle = Raspberry + tangerine
Sour Grape = Grape + Lemon
Strawberry Cream = Strawberry + Vanilla


as for headaches nars2k had some good advice
Honestly the headaches are dependent on several factors.
1. Not enough water while smoking
2. You don't smoke a lot so too much nicotine in your system causes the headaches.
3. You are on an empty stomach
4. You might be using bad quicklights/coals
5. You are not taking breaks in your session

The headaches are probably coming from a: not drinking enough water and getting dehydrated during the sesh or b: smoking way too fast and not taking breather breaks between big hits. I used to get headaches all the time, but now I've learned to sit back and chill a bit before I take another huge hit.

As far as how to spice up your sessions, like alanpeterson68 said, MINT! Mint goes with just about EVERYTHING and it really boosts the flavor. If you're burning the shisha, that will also give you a bad headache. Try putting the coals as far on the outside of the bowl as you can. Remember to heat up the bowl, not the shisha. The bowl will do the work for you!

the headache is probably from the coals. also break them in 1/2 and make sure the hole pattern is symmetrical.
