Unhappy Somewhat of a newbie, need some tips!

Well I've been smoking hookah for a few years, but I've never had my own hookah until two days ago! The problem is- every time I smoke, I love it of course, but I always end up getting WAY too buzzed (idk if its the nicotine or the general hookah buzz). And so I get nauseous and end up feeling ill .
Is there things I can do to get rid of this? I don't think I'm taking too many hits or anything, I try to space it out.

My rig- KM Americana 34 Inch with jumbo vase (ordered from **********, this thing is BEAUTIFUL), narbish km hose that came with (awesome hose), Egyptian clay bowl, ******* hookah quick lights (usually use two), and I've been using Al Fakher tobacco.

Being a very passionate pipe tobacco smoker, the way this thing gets me too buzzed really surprises me. Any tips guys?!

Being a smoker I'd assume you're not smoking on an empty stomach.
If you are that could be your problem.
You also have to consider how much smoke you're taking in, are you smoking the whole hookah to yourself?

Also certain flavours do it to me.
I'm fine with some Al Fakher flavours yet others will give me a mad headache.

Also pack your shisha loosely and leave some room between the tobacco and the foil, you don't want the shisha burning.

Slow down, take fewer hits, take smaller hits, drink more fluids while you smoke, open a window and get some fresh air.

Do you smoke by yourself? and are you smoking indoors?

Yah, ventilation helps a lot, and I usually smoke with a glass of ice water. These guys just about covered it.

Let the coals light all the way, until ashed over completely. Also make sure to leave a gap between the foil and tobacco. If the coals aren't completely lit they release a large amount of carbon monoxide due to there initial ignition. So that buzz and nausia may be slight CO poisoning.

everything above is great information, another thing is what AF flavor are u smoking? because some flavors just make people sick and if it is dyed it can make you sick from smoking the dye, so try smoking a flavor without a dye and see if that helps. Other than that make sure the shisha isnt burning make sure u drink a lot and eat before or during your smoke, take slow hits and space them its supposed to be relaxing other than that make sure the coals are completely ashed over usually with quicklights once they fully light themselves wait about 5 minutes before u start to smoke. Hope this helps!

Hey 904- You from jax?

As for your issues, what type of tobacco are you using? I would suggest that you use a washed tobacco and go from there. You also need to make sure that you're getting enough oxygen while you smoke. Breathe and don't try ot power lung your inhales. Also try not to over do it with tricks like smoke rings.

Try to smoke after or while eating and always have water with you with you smoke and keep yourself hydrated.

Thanks for all the tips people! I smoke indoors in my 4 bedroom apartment style dorm, but we open the living room windows and put the AC to the "on" position instead of "auto", that usually gets a decent draft going for ventilation. I usually eat after lunch or after dinner, so no empty stomach. I usually keep a glass of water handy to sip on during hookah. The flavors I've used are- grape with mint, strawberry, and cafe late (HATED IT, this one got me the sickest). They are all al fakher.

Yes I'm from jax! , what area do you live in korn kitten? I go to Georgia Southern University. What are some non-dyed, washed tobaccos? I'll try that.

Things that are sweet have been making me nauseas without fail for a while now, regardless of other physical status. It doesn't matter if I take a draw every 5 minutes or every five seconds, sweet flavors just make me ill. I can only have a non-nauseating session with a black moassel, like Zaghloul or AF soft black.

Definably do this and have water with you, or coke if you get headaches. When I first started I was using QL's and not getting all the powder off of them before I started smoking Never got me sick, but I know it couldn't have been good for me. Also try taking smaller hits if it gets you nauseous. Hope everything works out!
