Default How much $$ have you spent?

I had a small debate over with the gf about me spending too much of "unnecessary things" which later led me to think about how much I've spent with my hookah hobby.

I think I've spent a little under $1000 over the course of 1.5years
This includes everything hookah ex: coals, tobacco, hoses, foil, containers, even the hookah itself, everything.


How much do you think you've spent and over how long a period of time?

Default Re: How much $$ have you spent?

When I started in late '06, over the next year I spent around a grand, total. Then I started to reduce my spending a bunch, and only ordered some shisha and coals during the next year, but significantly less, probably near $100. So on and so on until recently, and now I'm back off the hookah wagon haha, and with my current job (the enabler in this situation) I'm afraid of what I might buy.

hahaha my gf has been saying the same thing lately. I just keep buying excessive amounts of shisha when I really should just be smoking all the shit I already have... I started about a year ago I'd say and I'm probably looking at... 1.5k should slow down for me once I feel I have a sufficient amount of shisha to do rounds without feeling the need to look up reviews and buy another flavor with good reviews...but that might be a while

I don't even want to know. I do everything I can to keep my costs as low as possible but it's still a leisure activity and hobby, thus it takes money to support. Just in hookahs and accessories I can estimate around 400-500 dollars. Tobacco and coals vary quite a bit but I can tell you it's too much at any given time.

I just got back into hookah smoking. with the purchase of my new rig and various accesories, tobacco flavors, and coals, I'm probably around $200 maybe $300.

But don't tell my wife. I'm also a cigar nut as well as a beer brewer and spend a considerable amount on those hobbies as well. Hehe If she only knew....

Somewhere in the range of $600-700 for 1.75 years of smoking. Thats a figure I didn't want to think about, thanks!

For the past 2 years or so... *does some math* I've personally bought about $700 worth of stuff. But when you break it down, my KM was a graduation gift (not on my dime) and I've gotten quite a few free samples from HP contests and local shops. Being friends with owners and workers pays off when they get new stuff and say "Hey try this out for us and tell us if we should order more."
