Default Shisharettes?

At my work pretty much every single person smokes cigarettes besides myself. I feel somewhat left out at times. I thought maybe there is a way to make some form of shisha cigarette. Any thoughts?

I think the closest thing to a "shisharette" is a flavored cigarette. I don't know much about them though...perhaps another member can elaborate?

I guess i don't understand.... Can't you just buy a flavored cigar? There is little to no way to make a shisharette. I would not want hot coals that close to my face.

I would guess the closest thing would be taking an actual hookah break when go break for lunch.

Oh wow...I just realized our avatars both have pandas!

But anyways, I agree with alanpeterson68. Maybe you can invest in a portable hookah?

just smoke something that doesn't taste like shit...go to the tobacco store and get some stuff to roll your own smokes, then get american spirit in the blue pouch.

get a:
roller
papers
filter tips
pouch of tobacco

for $15.00 you'll be set!

Flavored cigarettes have been illegal for a while now. They were banned because it drove kids to actually smoke them.

Oh. I see your dilemma then x] Well personally, I think your best bet is a portable hookah. Maybe your coworkers will get into it too =)

i think you can still buy flavored RYO, i may be wrong though

you can smoke shisha out of a vaporizer, but it will look sketchy probably to many people, other options are dokha, normal cigs, cigars, eclipse cigs (if they still make them, they steam the tobacco like a hookah or vaporizer but really dont taste like much).

but really why feel left out? just cause every one else does something isnt a reason to do it, if you want to then sure but dont just do it to blend in. i know with my friends and friends of friends when ever people are hanging out things are not pushed and if some one does every one else goes "hey hey no peer pressure"

I hate cigarettes thats why i feel left out when they smoke. The loose rolling tobacco does sound good. I would smoke hookah at lunch but by the time i get my food and eat there is very little time to do anything before i have to go back on the floor. My coworker's cig breaks are short 5 min periods between the busy hours of the day. I am looking for something that i could smoke that tastes good but also doesnt take a long time to set up, or in the case of cigars and hookah, require a longer session without it feeling like a waste

Its not the peer pressure to smoke. I enjoy smoking not only for the buzz but the conversation and social interaction that goes with it. Many of my most memorable sessions are not memorable because i had some amazing flavor, or the biggest clouds, but that i met some very interesting people or had a very deep or meaningful discussion while smoking

you can get small cigars that are about the size of a cig and dont take much longer to smoke, personally i think they dont smoke as well as a larger cigar but they are better than nothing. there is an acid cigar called the wafe that is really small, if you like that flavored cigar it would be good for that

i get the whole social part though

My suggestion? Screw it. 5 minutes is not a session of anything. It's people quieting the nic fit. Not long enough for a conversation and in no way is it relaxing. Hookah is supposed to be relaxing and calm. Standing around for 5 minutes in a cloud of cigarette smoke is anything but.

If you MUST be part of the cohesive cancer coalition either pick up a pipe with a small bowl or get an e-cig. The e-cig is more like hookah but is harsher and does not taste nearly as good. A pipe is a legitimate tobacco delivery device but unless you want to spend large amounts of money it will most likely be something that will not smoke well and have a small bowl for the shorter session.

The last option? Don't smoke anything. If you are really there just for the conversation and the camaraderie then it should not matter if you are smoking anything.

I'll have to look into them. I am currently working on making my mini mya car friendly (coal cover, sturdy base, thinking velcro). I lent it to a friend for a few weeks and he destroyed it. Unwashable hose rusted and crackly, stem never cleaned caked with old tobacco and i wont even start about the horrendous smell/taste the base has.

Can't get those in the USA anymore, they've banned all flavoring in tobacco in cigs, RYO, papers, and filters. No more flavored cigs of any kind, not even cloves.

Closest you're gonna get in the US is a flavored cigar or cigarillo, if they even still sell those.
