Default First solo session!

I've smoked hookah probably 15-20 times before, but never set them up for smoking and done it solo. Had the pleasure of my first one tonight with AF Watermelon in a 2010 KM + mini phunnel and some QL chinese Dodo coals (i know, i know.) Overall it went GREAT! Started off with 3 coals just to get it really sizzling and ended up sticking with 2 for the majority of the session. Ridiculous, endless thick clouds and amazing flavor from the AF. Got a pretty heavy buzz going (still am) and it carried along nice and evenly throughout the whole smoke, which was about 45 mins. I'm truly surprised nothing went wrong and this was a great experience for me, thanks to all the great help I've found on these forums. Yipee!

**EDIT: one concern i had was when i detached my non wash KM hose and there was a bit of water coming out the hose port end.. i aired it out as much as i could, dried the ends as far in as i could and left it hanging just to get any tiny bit out. should i be worried about this?

Sounds great, I would just hang up the hose, maybe blow it out. You should be fine. Happy smoking

Cool. I smoke solo almost all the time. As for cleaning the hose, when you have rinsed it well, shake it around vigorously to shake out any excess water droplets, then hang it and let it air dry. I do this with all of my hookah hoses and haven't ever had a problem with them. Smoke happy.

I think that may have been the issue. I had to empty out a considerable amount when i started off cause my first pull felt like i was sucking a hedgehog through a crazy straw. :-P probably got a little water in it during that time.

Remember, cover the stem with a half inch to inch of water for best results and no water inhalation.

smoking solo is never any fun, plus it's too much for me personally. I like to share hookah

to see where you want the water for your hookah set it up without the bowl and blow into the top until water stops coming out of the side, then get rid of a tiny amount of water after that and your good to go.
Solo smoking is great though, nice ending to a day or just to chill out and watch a movie, whatever

I do the same but I also spin my hose around, by the middle of the hose, like helicopter to get most of the water out before I hang it up to drip.

I smoke by myself all the time because I like to smoke at least once a day and no ones home when I want to smoke hahaha. It kinda feels weird because smoke bowls last forever and I'm just sitting there smoking by myself for 3 hours hahaha.

Good job! Sounds like you did much better than I did on my first try of setting up the hookah!
