Exclamation can someone help me out

I'm living in a house with my family and I was wondering if there is a way I could smoke my hookah without them knowing from inside my room. I really don't want to get kicked out for smoking since pretty much all my money goes to collage, and I'll have no where to stay.

If you are going to get in trouble, I wouldn't smoke it/ have it in your house. Your hookah habit isn't worth getting kicked out of the house over.

And no. There is really no way that you wouldn't alert someone in your house that you were smoking. Between the smell of coals, (and most likely the burn marks) the smell of the shisha, and the bubbling sounds and vibrations *especially if you are in a 2 story house*, you would probably get caught after a few sessions.

Just do it at a hookah lounge or a friends house.

i would either go outside and do it somewhere else, or negotiate with them and introduce them to the hookah culture, show them it isnt illegal and if your over 18 you should be able to make your own choices with smoking tobbaccos

I'll most likely go outside. It would be nice to be in the comfort of my room but its not a must. I mainly just want to break in my new hookah before i go camping because I don't want that "new" hose taste when sharing with my friends.

Just smoke on the porch or deck. Getting kicked out wouldnt be good. Unless you live in az like me. Then smoking out side is miserable. Smoke, a lot of sweat, and who knows maybe tears.

You could always politely explain to them that it doesnt really smell bad. Or smoke outside.

Honestly, why risk it? Just ask I they will allow it inside. Respect their wishes if they say no.

Only advice that I can give you is buy/make a diffuser and suff some dryer sheets in an empty paper towel roll and blow your smoke through there out of a window maybe with the help of a fan blowing as well. Works everytime for me.

I suggest being honest and showing some self control. There is nothing about hookah that makes it necessary for you to sneak around and go against the wishes of the people who are nice enough to let you live in their house. At no point should hookah ever damage your living situation or interpersonal relationships. If you are considering taking a risk that could potentially put you on the streets and hurt your relationship with your family... for hookah... then I suggest quitting and selling all of your stuff. There is not a single leisure activity that is worth that risk.

I spent three years keeping all of my hookah stuff at a friends house and only smoking there or outside on good days (not easy in New England). A little restraint goes a long way.

Don't sneak smokes behind their back. As a parent of a recently graduated high schooler myself, i will openly admit that I'd kick my kids ever lovin' a** to the moon and back if I caught her lying to me about something. If the threat of being kicked out is there, show some maturity and responsibility and respect the wishes of your parents. If anyone can't rise to that level of maturity then they, iMHO, aren't mature enough to smoke in the first place. Take it for what it's worth. Smoke happy.

I agree with everyone else just go outside not worth getting kicked out over, but if you really have to try burning some incense while you smoke I do that sometimes when I smoke cigarettes in the house, but other than that I think you are S.O.L.

What pretty much everyone here has said. Don't try to sneak it. It is absolutely not worth getting kicked out over smoking hookah. It's your parents house, it's their rules, respect their wishes.

It would be rather difficult to hide a Hookah session from a roomate/parents, lol. Tends to be rather smokey, at least we hope it would be. (everyone loves big clouds!)

Sounds like their big problem is you smoking and not necessarily the location - given that there's another family member staying in the house and smoking cigs. I'd just keep it quiet by doing it outside or elsewhere.

If it's just about the smell of the smoke, introduce them to the smell and explain that it doesn't have the same raunchy smell that lingers in the home.

Not gonna happen bud, too many things that would put up a red flag when it comes to smoking your hookah. Like others mentioned, the coals, the smells etc. Figure something out dude...

I completely agree with dusty... don't go lying to your parents man.. its not cool. My parents weren't happy when I started but we talked about it.. I only smoke outside. Your parents are taking care of you and let you stay in their house. Their house their rules.
