Just ask them if that one cig is going to last an hour, force you to kick back and enjoy the atmosphere, taste better with drinks/food. I dunno, anyone else?

1) Cigarettes taste horrible, whereas hookah tastes grrrrreat!
2) Cigarette = 5 minutes? Hookah = an hour.
3) Cigarettes contain ammonia, antifreeze, burning agents, formaldehyde, etc. And that stuff just doesn't do it for me. Lol.
4) I can't chill in a great lounge with great atmosphere with great friends for hours and smoke a cigarette. That is a job for the glorious hookah!

Any one of those reasons is reason enough for me.

cigs are addicting

my mom went to a quit smoking class like 7 years ago....and they gave her a list on what was actually in cigs and you wouldent believe some of the stuff thats in there not to mention they taste like shitttttttt.....i used to smoke cigs with my friends all the time in high school now i cant stand to even take a drag off of one i hate them and plus when ur out of money you might want to smoke hookah but its not like ur dieing to have one like you would if ur addicted to cigs....plus im sure hookah is 1000000x better for you than cigs its just going to take a study by people that want to find the truth and not all these professers that know nothing about hookah to find out

Because when you carry on a conversation with someone you don't have a cig flapping ridiculously from your lips.

there was one study that was very unbiased thats been floating around that shows there was a lot more "Tar" but then they say something to the affect of but "tar" is anything other than the nicotine that comes out and the "tar"from a hookah is a lot different and probably not any where near as bad since it is not burning the tobacco.

and to the OP. if they (who ever the they might be) have to ask why, they wouldnt understand, but getting you own is a more economical solution but it may not provide the same ambiance you have at a lounge

I've noticed that my hookah dose not give me stink breath like other
forms of smoking, and my fingers don't smell like an ashtray. Don't get
me wrong, I still like my ocassional pipe or cigar, but hookah is much
cleaner. Hooray for hookah! :-)

My girlfriend doesn't care that I smoke cigs but she hates it when I dip. But she can never be apart of a cigarette because it's not always a social thing. But when I pull out the hookah at my house she can have fun with it too. Hookahs are just an all around amazing social thing to do. I don't only smoke with people though lol im a hookah addict. I smoke everyday.

I would tell them this:
A cigarette is just a smoke, a hookah is an experience!!!

I have not been smoking hookah very long, nor have I ever been to an
establishment that caters to hookah smokers, but in this short time
I have come to see the difference between hookah and other smoking.
Hookah is special, it is so much more relaxing than my pipe or my cigars.
When I was a young child I remember a national geographic in my house
from the 1920's, it had a black & white photo of old men sitting in a cafe
in Jerusalem smoking hookahs. I remember wondering why where they
smoking from those strange hoses and bottles.
Now I understand. I still have that National Geographic, LOL!

I also enjoy setting up my hookah with friends, it makes it even so
much more of a social activity. I even enjoy cleaning my hookah too.
You take the time to set it up, you take the time to smoke it, you
take the time to clean it, and all the while you really don't worry about
the time.
