Default Getting annoying

Normally, i never get sick from smoking, but lately, it's been making me slightly sick - to the point I have to stop because I feel like I'm gonna hurl. At first, I thought it was just Tangier's kicking my weakly bum, but yesterday's Layalina made me ill as well... I smoke Lay all the time!

Any tips on what to do to defeat the "smoking" blargs? I normally eat before I smoke, but that hasn't helped any.

(edited because I think 100% faster than my fingers can type)

here's what I do and I dont normally get sick-

I munch through out smoking hookah - i'm a munchy type of chick always have to eat something, so usually i eat most of my meal before i smoke, then i relax and munch on chips (pretzels are excellente*)

I always have a drink with me. and drink throughout the session (either coke or the DREADED WATER lol haah) nm....

I relax, i dont do areobics or gymnatics or run marathons. I sit on my butt and veg-

have you switched coals recently? Switched to a new cleaning product? un filter water? have you changed anything? I remember i got sick everyday for like 3 weeks when i switched coals... i had to pop 3 excedrine in order to even smoke!!!!

Maybe you could pop 2 pepto or tums tablets? and before you smoke, and see if that cures it?

good luck love, let me know how it goes....
ssorry if my jokes dont make sense.. (or at least for those who dont know me...) as i have been up know for well over 24 hours...... and am now running on that hyper energy right before the crash......

Some brands make me feel sick if I am smoking on an empty stomach.

From what I can tell, not feeling well after smoking shisha comes from aggressive smoking. When you smoke a Western style pipe constantly drawing on it or not having it properly tamped can result in the dreaded tongue bite. Narghiles are the same in that if you aggressively smoke without pausing between draws chances are you'll take in too much too quickly and regret it. Smoking should be a relaxing, social endeavor which pleases the senses. Over indulging in tobacco is as bad an idea as over indulging in alcohol.

It seems that the best time to smoke is during or after a meal as someone pointed out. Also, avoid crappy coals like Rolland and stick with natural coals if possible and high quality instant lights other wise. Also, never start to smoke until the coals have started to ash and the surface is no longer black.

I make sure to eat something before hand, I usually will smoke after a meal. I also have some water, juice, beer or a mixed drink...

The only time I get the nauseous feeling, or spins, is with .5% or higher nicotine.

I never get this sick thing. ever.. but then they made us a bit tougher other side of the pond

Seriously though - I drink A LOT when smoking. Which may help.

And I tend to nibble on salty stuff, like nuts - quite in the cheap seats!

S.D.

Try putting a slice of Lemon and a slice of Orange in your water. Also, stop using water from the sink. Use Ozarka or Evians (thats what I do) you will notice a rediculous difference in the quality of the smoke as well as taste of the tobacco.

Hope you get to feeling better...

i think my problem was the type of shisha I was smoking - Kashmir peach. Only that one is making me feel ill when I smoke it.

My water is acutally rated within the top 4 in the nation (City water). I tend to snack on popcorn or humus & chips. I drink good amount of water. The other day I was even eating a sandwhitch and still got ill - changed to AW Afternine and was fine.

Dang it! Just when I get the shisha I want, and get it working right... it makes me SICK! BLARG!

Well, there is a significant amount of nicotine in the Tangiers, that could be the contributor!? After Nine only has .05% nicotine ... and correct me if I am wrong but I think Tangiers has .3% (that is what it said on his site)

So maybe, you are just not use to the higher content of nicotine? Maybe slow down, and try to drink plenty of water, mixed with some lemon. Definitely smoke on a full stomach with the higher nicotine content. And maybe over time you will develop a tolerance to the higher nicotine content.

Cheers!

You could also try dropping some Alka-Seltzer tablets in the base
Get the flavored ones, for added effect lol.

it's ONLY kashmir peach that gets me, none of my other tangiers (vanilla, kiwi, juicy peach) bother me... maybe that one is alittle stronger. Or maybe it's the "kashmir" spice.

For now, I'm staying away since it does seem to make me ill-sh, maybe if I take a break from it then go back, it will be easier. Guess I'll have to use the others for the videos.

I've heard that the kashmir line hits harder than normal tangiers.

I was always told dont start off smoking kashmir, work your way up to it. It will kick you butt!

but that's just what i was told...... I would put kashmir away for a while, or try to mix it with something, like a 90/ 10 split and go from there

Listen Janet, before I saw your name I had a feeling you are a woman (all the better). Do you diet? so do I, or at age 56 I'd not be the same weight I have been for decades. But if you eat a little food before smoking, you probably won't have that problem. PS. diet is for health, not looks.If anyone puts women down, its the women who enslave themselves by starving. Twiggy in 1965 started the Holocaust Look, and its a shame for those of us who prefer non-skinny women.

Happens to me periodically. I just can't handle doing it too often. Perhaps it has something to do with my sleep schedule I don't know but sometimes it doesn't matter what I am smoking it just gets on my nerves and I get frustrated and other times it doesn't matter and I just love it.
