Default Smoking Too Much Hookah??

Well last night me and a friend went to a local hookah bar on MSU campus and smoked one bowl and ordered another right after the first bowl was finished.

After the whole session I got a killer headache and even kind of gagged on the smoke. I even felt like throwing up . Has this ever happend to anybody else after smoking bowl after bowl with just 2 people?

The headache is carbon monoxide poisoning. The nausea is too much nicotine.

Try to get in the habit of taking a few breaths between each hit.

So is 1 bowl after another kind of too much?

yeah, now because of the lack of nicotine in the persons system.
it sucks going through a withdrawal of nicotine, when i did i was incredibly irritable and pissy at everyone and would either not stop shaking my leg or just shaking period.

yeah... bad time for me lol. thats what you get for smoking a pack of cigarettes a day am i right?

edit: a bowl after another isnt bad, unless you cant handle smoking that much in a small amount of time.
last night i went through two funnel bowls by myself practically and the only way i withstood it is because i have a high tolerance to nicotine and i would space out the hits, one everytime i died online on cod4, that sucked when i started getting 17 kill streaks lol

Sounds like you just got a bit nauseous over the nicotine to me, its what smoking for like 2 hours will do to you!

its important to drink while smoking and get fresh air (opened window or something). the brain need enough oxygen to work if there is too little O2, you get headaches

hense the co2 poisoning like austin was saying earlier. lack of oxygen and your body will go down like a sack of potatoes.
i knew someone that passed out from it once, he just was inhaling through the hose and breathing out through his nose. 10 minutes of that he was on the floor.

if that doesnt teach you to watch how you smoke i dont know what will

the three vital things in life (food water and air) definitely come into play when smoking a hookah lol

some tabacco is way to strong and has a lot of nicotine. others on the other hand are much better as they dont have much.

I use to smoke about a pack a day, I quit a 2 years back and now smoke hookah 1-2 times a week with my fiancee.

yeah starbuzz will do it. depending on the flavor that is. but generally starbuzz hits you moreso than other brands.

Sounds like you got carbon monoxide poisoning. Most likely, they were using shitty coals or they didn't fully light them all the way...ORRRR you were taking too many hits in a short amount of time.

Always drink and eat something before or during smoking.

Haven't had those symptoms in a long time. I had them when I first starte dout and I was using QL lol the reason why I got headaches was b/c back when I was a newb I had NO idea that the coal was supposed to be red hot all over b4 putting them on the bowl.

A few days ago, I had my first headache from smoking in months...I think its cuz I was taking way too many hits consecutively.

kas it isnt something thats just gonna happen when you smoke a second bowl, its how you smoke it. too much in a little amount of time or the coal not being lit causes it.

After smoking consecutively for 4 months now i still do that to myself a lot. every other session at least. I know its gonna suck soon, but i cant resist taking another puff lol

I doubt it was acute CO poisoning, you don't take that kinda thing standing up. It will give you a nasty headache but it is way more toxic than that. Coupled with the fact that he said he felt really nauseous I'd say he was describing nicotine overdose. That will definately make you feel sick, just like the classic "fatherly" thing to do after catching his son smoking is to force him to smoke the whole pack, smoking a good couple of bowls of tobacco will make you feel pretty bad too.

Replace hookah with cigarettes

Not really, you just have to use willpower at the end of the day. 3/4 times is a lot, and you'll feel it eventually, pal, suddenly you'll run up some stairs and start panting like a frickin' demon.

You could try some nicotine replacement too, just go to your doctor and they will usually get you something like patches etc (at least they do here in England, I don't know about corporate America and your health insurance rubbish).

Eventually though, it comes down to being strong-willed. You just have to be determined enough to give up.

Also, just stop buying yourself shisha online?

its hard to cut back on nicotine. the best (and practically only) way of getting over the addiction is to either cut back to once or twice a day, since its less than you smoke now.

either that or stop for a period of time. stop for a couple weeks. when it comes to cigarettes those with the lack of willpower to put them down and keep them there usually will cut back slowly. I know i went from a pack, pack and a half a day down to half, then a quarter, than one, and now i havent had one in 3 weeks.

the same thing applies to hookah because its nicotine also
