Default hookah sickness?

hey everyone...before you say anything...i have read the previous thread about hookah sickness and nausea.

the past three times i have smoked hookah...i have gotten nauseous and stomach felt like crap. i drink a gallon of water a day (do it becuase i work out) have done it on a mildly full stomach and have even tried eating while i have smoked. and i dont hit it to much. a hit or 2 every few mins. take nice breaks inbetween. oo and the sessions were liek a week apart. and only one bowl. so totaly smoking time per day mabe 45min. why am i still getting sick? have my body developed something against hookah

1. 2 hose maya vortex SB wb mint
2. 1 hose syrian egyptian nakala DA
3. generic vortex with SB half mojito and half mint

thanks

What kind of coals are you using and are they fully lit before you start smoking?

Do you make sure to fully light your coals? Have you cleaned your pipe(s) and replaced the water in the base recently?

Never eat while smoking. Also have you smoked Nak before? Its unwashed and has a much higher nic content, so it is a super buzz in comparison to SB.

make sure you clean your rig, bowls, and base. Nasty things can build up over time if you don't' maintain your hookah, keep it cleaned and scrubbed out!

Make sure you are smoking in a well ventilated area. Put a light fan on, open a window, make sure your area has air flow!Also try and light your coals in a well vented area away from your smoking area. (Try lighting outside them moving them inside) I know when I light q/l and occasionally naturals, my stomach wretches and lurches and I don't feel so hot. So now I light my coals in the kitchen, then transport them to the living room (via a coal tray) so I have lots of air circulating.

Make sure your hose isn't rusting.
I don't let my tobacco touch the foil ( it's usually harsh for me and gives me a headache faster)
I usually drink some red can coke when I smoke. (Water of course, but I also drink red can coke since it has potassium in it. You could also eat a banana. Potassium is known to help with headaches)

I can't think of anything else at the moment. I'm at work and I am tired

HUH?Nick, what are you talking about? Why not eat while smoking? What's wrong with it?
