Default Old School Hookah Pro! .. Flash Back!

Thought this would be a fun pic to share!

Jump in the time machine and let's have a look at Hookah Pro back when it was only a few days old!

Thanks to everyone that joined the community and helped along the way to make Hookah Pro what it is today! This truly is a great website and I am proud to be a part of it!

Hookah Pro was built by hookah smokers, for hookah smokers!
.. A place where members run the site, not manufacturers or vendors!
.. The Ultimate Source for Everything Hookah!

It was and still is a LONG and GRUELING road! I even lost girlfriends because of the time I spent building this website due to all the hours and dedication it requires .. but those bitches weren't worth it! haha .. if anything Hookah Pro helped me to get rid of those people in my life that showed no signs of support to my strong passion to build this community. True friends stood beside me and even lent support whenever they could.

Would I go back and do it all over again? Abso-friggen-lutely! .. and we would do it with as much integrity, passion, and ethics as we all did it together (as a community) the first time. Building Hookah Pro was definitely time well spent!

Cheers .. Sambooka!

I would change one thing. If I knew back then what I know now, I would have joined sooner and offered more help than my little donation now.

LOL! To Abu!

I remember those days! That was WAY back in the day (Which was a wednesday btw ) I was there for all of that. *TEARS well up into my eyes, sniffle* It's gotten so big! We're so proud of you! *sniffle*

On top of that the WEIRD thing was I was thinking about HP's beginning last night! I was talking to my husband about it and we got onto the subject of producing shisha then we started talking about "Smiley" . And what do you know, you post up a pic! Your ears must have been burning Samb!
