Default Hookah Talk

Ever since ive got my hookah and before i got it i would like to talk about it with other people just because of how excited i was. What seems to bother me is alot of people you tell you have a hookah or talk about it they think it has something to do with illeagel substances and i'm the type of person that has nothing to deal with that. I just dont like the fact that if i go to work and talk about going outside and smoking a cigarette (which i dont do) its ok but if i talk about smoking out of the hookah that night im told i cant talk about that at work cause its bad. wtf?

I guess i'll have to start being carefull with who i say it to and how i say it.

I don't care at my work. When someone says "Hey dude don't talk about that shit here we don't represent that kind of stuff" (I work at Jamba Juice) and we are suppose to life a "Jamba" life in being healthy...And well...I smoke cigarettes like their is no tomorrow and I don't care lol I just explain to people who don't understand and then they do and they are cool with it. Just let people know on a respectable and polite basis and they will understand...Well off to go make smoothies =[ latter guys.

I get the same thing at first but alot of people to have told me not to talk about it and things because it has a bad rap from movies and things. Although the more people that talk to me like that the more people i have gotten to come over and try it before they go spouting their mouth off about something they don't knwo anything about! This seems to work for me, hopefully it can for you too.

If people can talk about smoking cigarettes or taking a dip or chew, then you can talk about hookah. Just don't be an in your face guy about it. Try to explain to them that you smoke tobacco and if they still give you a suspicious look that's their problem.

Let people think what they want as long as you no it tobacco that your smoking that all that matters. If people are going to use it for illeagel substances there bloody idiots, it use to be used for NHT hundreds of years ago in India but as the years passed it was more used for tobacco. Which i`m sure you knew about. It should make it understandable if you tell people when using the hookah that it`s tobacco that you use it for. ....... (Life Quote: If your going to worry about what people think of you, you might as well stay home)

I found the best, and funniest, way to get someone to start talking hookah here at work is empty boxes. I have gotten quite a few to ask what it's all about just by throwing my empty Fantasia 50gr boxes at them. Lol, it's funny when they ask what's this? Then they smell the box and go OH MY GOD! WHAT'S THIS?! I just roll and say tobacco. Even the ones who have no desire to smoke hookah now open up to the conversations and keep asking me for more boxes.

Everyone from my work enjoys hookah, but none of them know how to properly use one.

We all usually end up at my place, listening to dub and smoking.

Trip Hop is rubbish, unless you leave out the singing.

Bahaha yeah we have an underground menu. White Gummy Bear, Pink Starburst hahah you're so right. Also we can make a Peanut Butter Sand which, Butterfinger and Fruity Pebbles lol.

But yeah at Jamba you have to basically either act or pretend to be a health nut and I don't because I guess you could call me what my manager does, the only person here who keeps it real no matter what hahah.

What are you talking about?

The Jambie Juice near my school employs a few heifers who obviously made the wrong health choices...

one day my supervisor, who is usually like, "keep busy bla bla" stopped and asked, "so what is hookah?", i discussed alot of the aspects of it with her, she had lots of minor questions like,

"so how does it feel and taste?"

thankfully i work in a cafe, so when you explain the art of hookah to someone you work with, you can relate it to espresso/coffee.
