Default lung capacity determines how much smoke is produced

me and two friends where smoking some nak da, we had two 3 king ql with a windcover on a egyptian clay bowl. using a razan hose and a havana 22 inch hookah,

we where all getting pretty good smoke but when my friend took a hit he got clouds that are bigger then any clouds i have seeen anyone priduce using even starbuzz, my friend and i both tryed to get clouds just as big but to no prevail.

in conclusion i have decided it has to be that he plays soccer, meaning he has a bigger lung capacity compared to us.


so if everyone wants to have big coulds do alot of cardio

p.s id like to know if anyone else has experinced this and sorry for grammer and all im in a rush lol

Agree to some point... It depends which way u blow the smoke out... Lung capasity matters but I'm a swimmer and some people get bigger clouds than I do... Alot depends on pull, blow and on lungs...

I have a friend that coughs from hookah, while I don't. He produces way less smoke... I mean lungs matter, but there's all other factors. Person who smokes hookah all the to
e should produce more smoke than the person who smokes once a week/month

I had an experience like this last night. I was smoking with my friends and I took a draw and exhaled the smoke very slowly just letting it fall out of my mouth. Then my friends tried doing the same thing. Exhaling at the same rate but there was only enough smoke for them to last a few seconds of it. While I on the other hand was exhaling slowly for about 30 seconds. This was quite fun and very interesting to watch the smoke as it floats threw the air. Sure did give me a good head rush too.

Well... Ya. Lol. Bigger space means more volume. I'm an actor and a singer so I have decent capacity and have confused people with the size of the clouds I make more than a couple times.

But I don't think lung capacity determines the thickness of smoke.. a lot of it is technique. I am able to create much bigger clouds on the same amount of smoke versus my friends. From what I can tell my technique is a slow long draw because a rapid pull doesn't necessitate more smoke. Then for exhale I think is where the trick is. I let out an initial gale which is mostly clean air from my mouth followed by the smoke from my lungs through the air that I already created a gust in. It is not forced much more than a normal exhale if at all. I think some of it is how you position your lips as well but hats trial an error I guess. I know that I am direction the air on some level but then again you shouldn't be trying to blow up a balloon.

I will agree that it seems like much more smoke when you let the smoke trickle out of your mouth past your eyes. But for clouds that is what I do.

EDIT: My droid's T9 hates me.. bear with it. :P

Umm to a point..

IDK about this... bc i can get huge clouds from the smallest of drags and then a friend and pull on the hose for hours and not get the smoke compared to me..

FYI im a heavy smoker and i and completely out of shape..

So it Makes sense in Theory, but idk if it is a completely valid statement to make.

Well then that proves that it isn't lung capacity even if I am wrong.

I am also a heavy smoker and i get much larger clouds than my more athletic friends. Maybe my lungs have been conditioned to cigarette rips and that is where the extra power comes from. lol

True story. I watched that breathing excersize vid you posted. It helped.

I play tournament paintball(not the woodsball type) and we do lots of running, sprinting, controlled falling, and a whole lot other things that require you to have a decent pair of lungs and I notice that I produce waay bigger clouds than my friends who don't do any kind of sport.

1st of all, doesn't matter if u do cardio, won't help u much if you born with small lungs... 2nd technique helps a lot, maybe the most important thing, also depends as u smoke a lot or not

I can attest to the lung capacity claim. I played clarinet and saxophone for about 10 years and I can inhale like a monster lol. Hamfoot envies me :P

I think it depend on how you breath.

Musicians (like myself)
Singers and athletic people Breath Differently then normal people do.

In essence we breath differently because we've trained our bodies to get as much oxygen with little force, singers and musicians ofter use breathing exercises and technique to get greater volumes of air in a minimal amount of time.

Breathing more from out Diaphram and not using our lungs but our muscles to do most of the work.

This is just a theory on why we might get bigger clouds.

Even if your not a musician or and athelete your might breath different from normal people.

It's HOW you breath, not how much you take in.

Interesting ideas. Gotta think big tidal volume (lung capacity) helps, but I"m sure technique in regards to smoking is the key?

Maybe just after so long of smoking the smoke contents have less chance to adhere to the inside of your lungs?
