Default Cigarette breaks?

My group of friends that I normally smoke with are all cigarette smokers, including myself, but when I am smoking hookah, I don't have much of a desire to smoke a cigarette. My friends on the other hand take cigarette breaks during the session! Anyone else like this?

When I used to smoke, hookah never satisfied a cigarette craving. I'd smoke hookah, finish the session and light a cigarette a couple of minutes later.

But then again, I wasn't addicted to the Nicotine, I was addicted to the feeling of inhaling the smoke into your lungs when smoking cigarettes.

I'll turn 30 soon and I'm thinking about taking up cigarette smoking even though no one else in my family smokes cigs anymore (they died), but I probably will refrain from cigs while smoking hookah and light up afterwards

Got a few friends that do it, i've wanted a cigarette while smoking hookah before. It's one or the other though, the hookah passes you if you're smoking a cig.

I would advise you against cigarettes. STRONGLY.

Depending on your personality and will power, it will be almost impossible to quit after a while.
I was lucky since I don't have an addictive personality and my girlfriend was a motivational factor in quitting. I smoked my last cigarette one night and ever since the next day, I haven't smoked a cigarette since. That was almost 3 years ago and I had been smoking for 6 years. I had no kind of withdrawal symptoms, I only kept thinking "Man, it would be nice to have a cigarette right now". But I didn't NEED to have one...

Most of my friends still smoke to this day and a lot of them have tried quitting but just can't.
And unless you're already married or otherwise taken, cigarettes are a turnoff with the girls 90% of the time....

back when I was a cigarette smoker I used to light up right after smoking a hookah. Most people look at smoke as nothing more than that, just smoke. Dosent matter how you get it as long as you get it. However shisha while it does have additives, does have nearly the chemicals that cigarettes have. All of which are streamlined to do nothing but keep you smoking over and over. Comparing the tobacco of cigars, pipes, hookahs to that of cigarettes is like comparing a lean beef gourmet dinner to a fat burger from mcdonalds. the argument could be made that all red meat is bad for you... But most everyone would agree that overprocessed fat filled beef is horrible for you.

When I used to smoke cigarettes I would smoke while the coals were lighting up and then after I'd put them out but I didn't smoke them during a session. Although a lot of my friends would smoke their cigarettes and then take a drag or two from my hookah since it was at the designated smoking pavilion at college.

I never smoke a cig during a shish session, but admit I have lit up a cig afterwards. I just wonder if cigarette smoking kills the taste buds and reduces the taste of shisha? Some reviewers of shisha have a very keen sense of flavor description... I wonder if they also smoke cigs, or just shisha?

Cigarette smoke is thought to reduce both taste and smell. You will hear from alot of people that when they quit the coffin nails they can both taste and smell alot better (I know that this was true for me). So your statement could be completely valid
Though i'm sure alot of hookah smokers on these forums who do reviews smoke cgarettes as well
