Default Issues!

Issue 1. I have been getting some nausea after smoking some layalina anyone know what may be causing this?

Issue 2: I found that my heart has 3 tiny holes in it.....i can feel the air when I blow into the hose, however, it doesn't effect my smoke at all. What should I do about this if anything? Maybe take some nail glue or super glue to seal the holes?

Oh, please bombard me with suggestions I'd really enjoy it

Issue #1: Have you been eating or drinking while/before smoking? If not, you can get sick and nauseous easily from all the nicotine. I smoke Layalina and I never get ne stomach aches or anything.

Issue #2, Yeah I don't think it would hurt to use super glue. As long as it doesn't get near any heat, its not really hazardous.

Yeh I have been eating and drinking before and during smoking. I think I'm not used to the nicotine yet as I am still new to hookah...

make sure to breathe between hits, and also if you feel sick step outside and get some fresh air. Also, the type of coals you use may also cause nausea...at least it did for me.

1) either its the lack of fresh air, lets face it smoking in a house in the winter means no open windows and it will get hazy fast. if your not used to smoking any sort of niccotine you will feel sick, possibly puke.

2) those holes are not a problem at all, mine has them as well. i could be wrong but i believe if you plug them you might constrict airflow and make it harder to take a pull. so just leave them

makes sure to take 1 or 2 breaths between each hit and also light coals outside (if you're using QL's..)

Issue #1: the others are right. Drink something and maybe munch some crackers or such not. Take deep breaths to clear your lungs every once and awhile. It's not always about making clouds, relax and enjoy the taste.

Issue #2: The Old saying... "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." My 22" Egyptian's smoke valve is cracked - smoke comes out when I clear it, but it smokes like a dream. Also long as you contiune to get great smoke, don't mess with it. Egyptians aren't 100% sealed due to being hand-made.

If you get sick when you smoke you are doing something wrong. Let me suggest that you smoke slowly and shallowly forgetting about clouds and concentrate on taste and texture. wait a good 30 seconds between draws and eat some fruit when you smoke. Since your taste buds are not in your lungs don't bother to inhale. It also is a good idea to walk around when you smoke so you're not getting a constant intake of CO and such.

Issue #1

I agree with everyone who said that you should probably eat and/or drink before you smoke. I had the worst experience when I smoked on an empty stomach, and I threw up after that session. WORST PAIN EVER! So make sure you eat and drink before/during, and again with what everyone else said, just relax. Take in a few good hits, but you don't have to take constant huge hits, pass the hose around, enjoy the company of those around you, have a nice conversation. If you're feeling lucky, dare that special someone to do a shotgun, hahaha.

So when I smoke, personally, I make sure I've eaten, and then me and my friends just put on some nice Middle Eastern music and chill. Sometimes we'll watch whatever game is on, or just listen to the music, it's all good in the end. If you want some tips on Middle Eastern music you can listen to some Amr Diab, Alabina, and Arash, for starters. Hope this post helped.
