Default Hookah Buzz?!?!?!

OK......

Im an old school tobaccophile... and I am wondering what actually happens to those of you that limit your tobacco consumption to hookah.... I keep hearing about the "buzz" WTFOMFGBBQ.

Um... I smoke a pack of menthol cigs a day.... usually have a few pipes a week.......... cigar on the weekend... and damn near a bowl of hookah every night.

Hookah does make me mildly relaxed.... but a buzz? like an alcohol buzz or some other unmentionable experience?

The only time I had an experience where I caught a buzz with a hookah was when I smoked straight Levi Garrett in my hookah......... made my damn ears ring.... complete bell ringing experience. Asfahan did give me a good nicofix.... like smoking a strong cigar.

Where is this great BUZZ that is spoken about... or am I just so toxin laden that it has no real effect?

I never understood the whole buzz thing and I smoke tombac in my narghile and 50+ gauge cigars. I'm not a heavy smoker and i've always smoked for taste. From time to time I give it up for a couple of weeks and not once have had "cravings.

im with you guys on this, moderation is not something I'm known for. I don't smoke cigs but I do indulge in various special tobaccos like fulni and the myan pipe tobaccos, I also enjoy cigars quite a bit. The only time I can say theres a buzz is when I push it to the limits (5 cigars a day, 10 hookah sessions etc).

No offence, but you guys sound like my BF - he's a pack, pack and a half a day smoker - will do some cigars every once and a while... but on the few times he smokes hookah, he never (with exception of tangiers) gets a buzz. NEVER! And he'll do smoke rings (or atleast try real hard) and chain like a chimmey.

Me on the other hand... Even Hookah-Hookah, if I chain it, will slightly buzz me. I like to buzz.... (exception of the sick buzz Tangiers will give me when I smoke too much ).

I think it's your body's reaction, some people are more adjusted to nicotine than others. Or have "smokers lung" can breath more deeply or often than others. I'm not a regular ciggy smoker, I can't even enjoy a cigar before coughing up a lung - but I can hookah, but get buzzed easy.

Just my thoughts...

I love cigars and pipe tobacco, and they mildy relax me.
I smoke cancer sticks when I'm stressed real bad, as I find they bitchslap the nerves.
But hookah?
I love the taste, I feel calm, I enjoy it. But usually a little while into the session, I can feel a nice head buzz going. It's a light, floaty feeling, and it is rather enjoyable. I think it is a combined effect of both nicotine and oxygen deprevation, really. Hence why when you "chain" long draws, a buzz is more apparent.
I dunno, just a theory, rearry.

I sometimes get a buzz, while drinking, or blowing rings considerably! But most buzzes are not good to me, I don't like the light-headiness of the buzz. So when the buzzing starts, I usually stop blowing rings, or pass the hookah when it is my turn...

buzzes aren't good to me either. I hate them. Anytime i feel one coming on i put the hose down. I get a headache, i get sick and just get an all over icky feeling.

sometimes it creeps up on me and if i stand up i have to sit back down or i'll fall or worse i feel like i might pass out. but i can't handle buzzes well at all.....

This "buzz" you get is really for those who haven't really smoked before. Before I started hookah I had played around with some cheap swisher sweets and the like. The first time I had hookah was the first time I had ever really smoked. I got this light headed feeling and was kinda something like I had lost all my balance and had problems walking about. It basically felt like the hydrocodone I had taken when I had my wisdom teeth removed.

I think that the light headed thing is do to taking in much CO2. Usually, that is a result of aggressive, deep inhaling but once in a while it comes from using low quality coals. If you are too aggressive in smoking a regular pipe you'll get tongue bite so I think it's better to treat your narghile as something to be savored. Take it slowly and don't worry about huge hits but focus upon the taste and the joy of the ritual.

If you don't smoke, a cig will give you a buzz. You can get a buzz from drawing on the tube without loading the bowl, if you pull on it long enough. Hyperventilation? And of course nicotine helps while your hyperventilating. But it should be about the experience. A good reason to get together with a friend or two.

Since you're a HEAVY smoker of tobacco, you're body has built a tolerance to the nicotine, and obviously you won't be able to get a buzz out of the hookah...I've been smoking hookah 5-7 days a week for the past 2 1/2 years, and I can say that my buzz isn't as strong today as it was 2 years ago when I first started...but since I've only smoked hookah (no cigarettes, no cigars), I still get a buzz every single session...and mind you, I only smoke Starbuzz (which by many is considered to cause no buzz ) :

Pbpredator, Al Waha has a strange buzz... a sleepy almost drunken like buzz... it's different than most other brands and sometimes can make ya sick if you'r not expecting it. Try drinking water/tea next time and snacking on something, it does help kill that sick drunk feeling it can give ya.
