Default Smoking hookah indoors?!

Alrighty I have a few questions for you all who smoke insidee.

I havent smoked hookah inside my ownn room before, but I'm too lazy to go outside,
So I gotta couple of questions, I dont want to wake my madre next door,

Will the smoke detector be a problem at all?
Will it smell too much? I'll have the windows open and a fan running, door closed obviously. and im upstairs, and its a pretty bigg room
Will the bubbling noise make the ground rumble? (again im on the second floor) prob should just skip this question and make a diffuser,

Havent had a problem with mine.... Since you said it was a big room, I would say no. The Smoke isnt that thick. So unless you blow it directly into the dector I would say you would be fine. I would test mine now for you, but roomate is asleep.

My Roomate says he like it when I smoke because it makes the house smell like incense. So maybe try some incense and see if it goes out the door, I know they are more potent then the Hookah. With the window open and fan on am sure you will be ok, except for right outside your door maybe.

The smell goes away after about 4 hours or even after an hour. The smell doesn't stick like cigs or Cigars.... So its not going to bring down the value of stuff in your house and my cloths seems to smell fine afterwords.

I would say with carpet pading and everything... You shouldn't be rumbling loud enough for the sound to travel downstairs. But if your worried, like you said Diffuser fixes that easy.

Thankss for the quick reply. Yeah I was curious about that because Ive smoked a cig in here before, and it reaked till the next day o.o , that was a bad idea.
Im afraid of it traveling to the next room overr

Yeah seriously, its not like smoking cigarettes inside, the smell is nice, and if you have to lie, just tell her you lit a candle.

Another quick, inexpensive fix for the sound, if it is a problem for you, is to place an inexpensive mouse pad under the hookah. It will isolate the vibrations from the bubbling and also provide a nice slip preventer, though I've never had a "slip" problem with mine. Just a thought. The diffuser is a good idea, as well. Smoke happy.

Do your patents know you smoke? I think some coals when lighting could set off a smoke detector if close enough.

The burbbling from my hookahs could be heard down stairs in my old house. Now I live in a one story and can be heard the next room over as well.

As for the smell, incence or candle excuse could work but what if it wakes her up and you get caught in the act? I would not smoke in your parents house if they did not give you permission to do so. Which by your posting it seems to me that you don't. Just wait to smoke. Jmho

I have set of the smoke detector lighting the coals, but not smoking, smell probably won't be noticeable outside your room and it depends on what tobacco you are smoking, the bubbling would be hard pressed to make the ground rumble, think it is how much breath you have, could you really blow on the wall and make it shake?

Yes they know, Its kinda hard not to. I just don't want the smell traveling to the next room and waking up my mom, or making the whole upstairs smell, I'm not worried about trying to hide it. My mom would probably freak out about the coals being able to fall on the floor though.

never set off a smoke alarm, the smoke isnt thick enough and doesnt linger.
there might be a faint after smell but with the fan on you should be good.
and even if you dont have a diffuser, i doubt it will make any noise

Will the bubbling noise make the ground rumble? (again im on the second floor) prob should just skip this question and make a diffuser,
1)My detectors never go off, even when the room is hazy.
2)The smell from me smoking hookah in the front room usually stays in that room. Maybe slightly in the next room. And is gone without a trace by morning. Even on strong stuff like Tangiers and AyamZaman. But even if it did stay a little it always smells good to me.
3)I use a 32" KM with a funnel bowl and it doesn't really rumble that bad. And if your worried about it try using a small rug, similar to a kitchen or bathroom rug to set the hookah on. Will help dampen the vibration.

When I light my coals inside i put a fan in the window and my hotplate with the coals on it right behind it. It will still stink in your room but it won't be nearly as bad. And generally when I get done smoking there is still a light smell in the room but it's nothing too bad. And yes that includes nakhla as well.

Shouldn't be too much of a problem man. Fan isn't even all that necessary. Just keep the window cracked, a bit of febreeze when your done and your golden. Oh and stuff a towel in the crack under the door.

All I can say is that both nakhla and dm smell, and the lingering smell is very pungent (don't know if it has anything to do with the actual taste and smell of tobacco in both brands, but that has been my experience).

In fact, while I smoke inside, most of the time I have a window open with a ceiling fan going, recently I've been smoking mizo (can't recall which flavor) and had some friends come over, before they even came close to the door (they were still outside the house), they knew I had the hookah going and knew exactly what flavor it was.

Kinda sucks cus my latest pick up is a nakhla flavor,
I also have alwaha mint/lemon and af rose, but im sick of them.

I havent smoked in my room yet, the coals I have ash way too much for that, so when I get new coals and tobacco ill try it out.

I have my hookah just in my room on display and you can already smell it just from its usage.. then again I need to clean it.

Thanks for all the input btw.
