Question Question...

Hey everyone,
just a quick question, is Hookah still bad for the lungs and stuff? Like cigarrets? I mean, I know it's not as bad but...
and do you guys ever get sick after smoking Hookah? Cuz I just finished smoking some Hookah with my dad and I'm kinda sick... although that could also be because I took on his bet to eat a whole raw chilli straight of the plant without any water or anything for a minute I lost btw
But yeah, is it still possible to get lung cancer and stuff cuz I read now some of you guys smoke Hookah like 4 times a day!
Also, any tips on how to blow rings? lol, I really want to because it looks so cool!
Thanks guys.

Smoking ANYTHING is bad for the lungs.

Search thru the forum, there have been several posts about this topic.

Personally I beleive it's ALOT LESS HARMFULL than smoking ciggys. You only heat the liquid in the shisha tocbacco, not burn it - most of the harmfull tar & chemicals are produced this way.

I agree, anything you smoke is not good for you. The trick to blowing O's is say o while you blowing out your smoke, believe me you'll get it.

Cool, thanks.
Also, I jsut did some research and the brands of charcoal here in South Africa are:
Hookah Lite charcoal
Soex charcoal
Swift Lite charcoal

Can you guys recognise any? And if so, which one is best? (I heard Soex is awful)
And also with the flavours:
Al Waha
Afzal
Nakhla

Same, recognise any? Which one is best?
I'm gonna do some experimenting myself but it would be nice to get some help.

I absolutely agree with sammn. I do believe that no matter what, any form of smoke is not good for you. Compared to cigs hookah is LESS harmful. But, it is still bad for your lungs.

As for you feeling sick after a session, its probably from all the nicotine or your coals weren't fully lit.

Al Waha is very good I am just starting out and I use Al Waha. Its very easy to manage heat... although there's quite alot of stems!

I would check out the product reviews section of this forum. VERY useful information on many different kinds of coals and tobacco.
