I didnt know emphysema was hereditary, even if it isnt that sucks man. I dont think many people in my immeadiate family have had health problems related to smoking, otherwise im sure my parents would be more up my ass about it.

i would just take a pull then take a quick breath of air afterwards.

and i dont know if emphysema is hereditary or not i just know that my grandma and her sister both smoked and both had it and so did my great grandparents.

Yeah i was a pretty big smoker.. but after cutting right back and smoking more hookah, you know where the better taste is! Slowly but surely the marlboro man has rode of in the sunset and has been replaced by an awesome dude named StarBuzz and a couple of his mates named Al Fakher, Al Waha & Layalina!

I started smoking when I was 14 (not because it was cool, none of my friends did it. Just out of mere curiosity.) I'm 20 now and still smoking. But it's really not a good habit to get into, it really tears up your lungs, makes it harder to breath, and makes you more susceptible to chest infections and coughs and stuff. I've had bronchitis I think 4 times in the past year or so and I still cough up flem that collects in my chest sometimes. It's really unpleasant, and I'm still trying to give it up.

It's really not something you want to get into, as far as taste goes, most people dont like it plus the smell sticks to your clothes your hair and your breath unlike Hookah smoke which is cleaner and much more pleasant smelling. Plus the smell doesn't stick in rooms or clothes or anything like that. Stick with hookah smoking, the buzz is better and after a while the cigarette buzz disappears.

I can say i hate smoking cigarettes a lot. they smell like ass, they are horrible on the mouth and lungs, and they help kill you even faster. i remember hearing something like a smoke can take 10 minutes off your life. that sucks majorly.

I perfer hookah so much, im glad i got off cigarettes and moved over. its a better way to spend my time and my life lol

now mind you im not saying hookahs harmless, but its obviously not as bad

Yeah I've heard it cuts 7 minutes off per cigarette. Not sure if it's true or if it's merely anti-cigarette crazy campaigner folks. But I wouldn't doubt it.

I also read about a few sites trying to claim that hookah smoking is so much worse than cigarette smoking. Which, yeah it lasts longer, but you feel it in your lungs, that the smoke is much cleaner, especially with the lack of tar and all. Yeah if you don't know what you're doing Co2 is a risk, but with natural coals especially, they burn much cleaner and once fully lit, they're is no smoke which (I think) eliminates or severely reduces the risk of Co2 poisoning.

I love smoking hookah, the only reason I still smoke cigarettes is because I need a quick nicotine fix when I'm out and am unable to smoke hookah or sometimes I'm just too lazy.

Right on, dude. It's really not worth it to even try them. Hookah smoking is much much better. And it tastes and smells better. :P

I roll my own cigarettes, it's pretty tasty. I like the taste of tobacco, but that's just me. I'll smoke maybe a few a day when i'm bored and feel like relaxing, but i can go a few weeks without one no problem. Before i started smoking i told myself i wouldn't let it become a bad habit, and for about a year or two i haven't.

edit: woah this thread was bumped from the depths, the last posts here were in april haha.

Yeah, reviving old topics are sometimes popular

But to add something to the topic too. In my opinion you can't compare cigarettes to hookah, as you can't compare cigars to hookah too. They are different forms of smoking. But it's true, that the most "disgusting" of them is the daily cigarettesmoker, who can't stand to smoke one of them for 10 minutes. I do not have problems with people, who can enjoy their quality cigarettes, i do it sometimes, but most of the time it's the habbit of "running people" who don't have time for anything.
Hookahs and cigars are another thing. For them you should have time for lighting one up, just sitting on a sofa and chilling, or chatting with other people. It's another form of pleasure

cigs suck. i tried it once and had to stop smoking it. i have no clue how people enjoy them. smoking pipe tobacco out of a water pipe (not a hookah) is a lot better since the tobacco is kinda moist. you get a real head buzz from that, but no where as enjoyable, relaxing, or social as a hookah.

cigars, are social since they take a while to smoke and i'm friends with a lot of power smokers that can finish a cig in a minute. there also kinda harsh if you end up breathing in the smoke, and end up not being to enjoyable.

hookah is the best way to go. i love siting around with friends and smoking a hookah too bad there isn't any good small portable hookah's, but that would end up just looking like a small water pipe used to smoke something illegal (you wouldn't need to keep lighting).
