Default Bad experience one night

I'm a beginner but I've smoked hookah many more times before this night. My friends and I ran out of shisha, so I went to a local store and bought Starbuzz Sex on the beach. Smelled really good, I was really excited to smoke some.

Get to my friends house, and we set up two hookahs, one was a pumpkin and the other was an average sized hookah. Regular bowls with quick lite coals. After about 3 sessions, we take a rest and head inside the house. While I'm taking a piss, my breathing gets really heavy, and I nearly faint. It was only a problem when I was standing up, once I lied down on the bed everything was okay. I was also really lightheaded since I smoked from the pumpkin most of the time, and it's really hard to suck smoke from that thing.

Now my question is: What caused me to almost faint? Here are things I think that could've been the problem.

Within about 1 hour, I took over 40 huge hits.

I accidently swallowed a good amount of smoke.

The coal we used was slightly black (some small parts) even though I told them to wait till it was fully red.

When sucking from the hose, I could taste A LOT of the juices. Is that normal.

Any help?

On a side note: I have asthma, so my lungs aren't that good to begin with.

I would have to go with the asthma the issue being the fact that the air ways going to your lungs are overly sensitive and prone to becoming inflamed. But hey, i'm a noob so it could be a more hookah related issue that I'm not familar with.

if its hard to pull, its either the hose or bowl being way too full / clogged. also juices on the end of the hose is nasty as hell. black coals cant help

umm, could be a combination of hardcore drags, CO, and not enough oxygen?

The tobacco was probably burning (packed too high). Also always make sure the coals are lit or else you will get physically sick and you'll get a mad headache.

Make sure you eat and drink before or during smoking. Also, don't chain smoke like crazy or else you'll lack oxygen. Take breathes (for 30 seconds) between each draw.

Most likely it's CO you're not used to, or the lack of oxygen.

to much CO, not enough O2, probably not enough in your stomach, getting up from sitting down and the fact you relaxed more muscles while you were pissing, probably just a combination lead to a drop in BP.

and remember while taking levitra/viagra a sudden drop in BP can occur

you don't need to take "huge hits" just relax and enjoy it. I have seen so many people take super long drags and hold it in and breathe out. just puff away and enjoy the flavor, no need get it all in, there is plenty of smoke for you.

ya i used to take deep hits but lately (especially after seeing how a lot of people smoke in the middle east) ive been taking smaller hits, also it doesnt mess with my lungs at all (didnt get much of an issue but id some times cough the next day). and with stuff like tangiers i still got a decent buzz (then again hadnt smoked tangiers for a while)

This seems like a good place to ask without starting a new thread, in case it's already been covered:

The friends that introduced me to hookah mentioned getting "hookah-sick" as though it were an issue that came up regularly. Now, I've never been "hookah-sick" myself at all, so I'm wondering: is this an actual problem, or were my friends just of meager constitution, or were they doing something wrong?

well there are a few different things that happen/can happen.
a)to much CO causing light headedness and/or head aches
b)nic-a-fits, to much nicotine in the system causing the above and digestive issues (nausea, craps, etc)
c)some report that smoking "makes them go number 2, in a bad way" i dont believe this and thing it is just that they are smoking 1-2 hours after they ate diner and had something that didnt agree with them (being that im gluten intolerant and didnt know it for years i can promise that when you eat things your body is sensitive to it doesnt take long to get that urge)

so, light the coals fully, dont over do it, and dont jump to blame the hookah if you have digestive issues
