The problem is that you went for the big clouds rather then taste. To get monster clouds you used too much heat, smoked to quickly and inhaled far too much smoke and got sick from the CO. In the future i'd suggest forgetting about big clouds and focus on the taste, don't inhale and watch your heat management.

I remember you now you are the chap from the bergen area I believe that I sent a bunch of shop locations to. Go back to village sensations. They have a box of "easy-lite" Japanese style coals for like 6-8 bucks. Try them out.

Other than what is written you probably got a mean nicotine buzz that you didn't build up a tolerance for. Nakhla is unwashed!

Ugh your prob is Starlights! lol

When I was a newb, these were my go to coals...Not knowing how horrible they were! lol

They gave me headaches for days and they always got me sick...That is until I learned that coals are supposed to be RED hot before they are put on the bowl

Make sure you ate or drank something before or during smoking.

Also, make sure you coals are RED hot, as in fully lit and no black spots.

Make sure you take breathes in between each puff or else all that nicotine will give you a headache

The only shisha that gives me headaches is Layalina and Starbuzz.

Classic signs of nicotine poisoning.
Why does no one ever consider that?
Yeah - co is possible too. But the most likely culprit is the nicotine.
Nicotine is poison and a very effective one at that.
Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, heart palpitations, seizures, stomach cramps, headache, sweating
Usually it begins with nausea, then headaches and dizziness.
Just 5 cigarettes worth of nicotine is enough to kill an average adult.
An empty stomach will hasten and or intensify the effects.
If you are inhaling it is a sure bet you are sucking down enough nicotine to do the job.

Hajo and Pigpen hit most of the big points - too much smoke, too short of amount of time. Nakhla has more nicotine than many other brands, plus big clouds means you are getting LARGE doses of both CO and Nicotine. Neither is good in large doses - even if you are a major ciggy smoker.

Plus, it sounds like you may want to reconsider the brand of Quicklights your using - coals can make or break a good smoke.

Slow down, taste the smoke more than play with the clouds. Eat and drink something before and maybe during as well. Relax and enjoy, take breaks and if smoking with other, let than have more time. You may gain a tolerance to the Nicotine (if that was the main issue) after some time, but the CO you won't.

More often than not, it's the CO that's making your body feel all weird.
Nicotine just gives you a nice blood rush.

Sorry to bust your bubble. But nicotine is a controlled substance not because it is addictive- but because it is a deadly poison.
It has been used in insecticides for decades.
No one can consume rising amounts of poison without feeling the effects.

Yea I defiantly need to get different coals...As you said tho to eat and drink something, I skipped lunch, so that may have been the problem.
