Default How Much To Smoke...

Hi guys, I'm new to hookah smoking. I need to know how much is acceptable to smoke each day. The reason for my asking is because I smoked 3 bowls today and I know this can't be right...or can it? Please let me know because I don't want to over-do it. Thanks guys

- Mohamed

Some weeks I smoke more than a car exhaust. Three smokes a day.

Some weeks, I may have three.

How long where you smoking and where you smoking with other people, if so how many?

There's a lot of factors here. As for how much is too much? That's mostly an opinionated topic.

Personally, if I smoke three times a day, each session 1 hour, by myself, it would be to much for me. I usually smoke with friends, and our sessions are 3-4 hours, weekly.

But, that is not to say three times daily is to much, it's just to much for me.

Haha Juno you are funny as hell bro. But as for your question Ace, I smoke by myself man. Three 1 hour sessions today, but I was wondering if this is too much because tobacco isn't necessarily cheap ya know, so if I smoke that much each day I'm gonna be done with what I have before the week is up! :P

One bowl is enough for me a day lol. The most I have done lately is 3 bowls but it is only like maybe 1 day a week at the most.

I don't smoke as much as I used to when I started out. I guess now I'm a "calm" smoker and not a enthusiastic one that I'd smoke the heavens out of my hookah. ^_^

How much one smokes is up to them. There have been times I've smoked twice a day, everyday a week. Other times I may only smoke a single bowl in the span of 10 days.

Plus, depending on HOW you smoke may be more important. Are you always aiming for BIG CLOUDS, or are you sipping for taste and not inhaling much of the smoke? Big clouds can cause more damage long term as you are drawing the smoke (and nicotine/ect) deep into your lungs. Shallower sips for taste are similar to smoking a cigar - you don't inhale (or inhale deeply) and enjoy the flavor rather than producing clouds.

If your young and healthy, just take into consideration that the more you smoke, the less healthy over the long run you may become. It will also be more expensive as the cost of more tobacco and coals, plus time and effort goes into the mix.

I normally smoke 2 bowls each time I pack. That or one really long bowl of a long lasting tobacco. This happens between 3-4 times a week. Social smoking is the way to go. Then it's not just me smoking that much.

I usually limit myself to three bowls because after that I get a major nicotine headache usually.

Any amount that doesn't cause direct adverse health affects if fine. These include Sore Throat and headaches. Nausea is common as well. If you are smoking that much, keeop hydrated and well fed.

Like everyone else has said, it's all up to you.

I suggest starting off at maybe 1 bowl a day, or even every few days. If you want to step it up, do so slowly and make sure your body is ok with it. You'll learn your limits pretty quickly.

When all of my roomates decided to go buy hookahs as well, we got up to smoking 4 and 5 bowls a day. One night we went out drinking after hookah and working, then came back and smoked more hookah (with halo). At 4:30 am I got a hardcore headache and tried to go to bed. It got so bad I got nauseous and passed out in my hallway trying to get water. The moral is that I have cut down to 2 bowls a day and I feel great. So you just have to learn your own limits one way or the other. Hope my tale of caution helps you out.

Thanks to everyone for replying. The reason why I'm asking this is...I actually forgot to put this in my first paragraph of this thread, but I used to smoke Marlboro cigarettes like nothing...I'm talking at least a pack a day, sometimes more. So I said to myself, "I want to try this hookah deal out and see if I can give up smoking cigarettes for good." Now I haven't had a cigarette in two days, but I'm about to go pack a bowl ahaha. But I feel really good, not having any of the effects of a smoker going cold turkey...must be due to the hookah. I really love this hookah a lot. I have a Mya Bambino and it's small but don't let the size fool you. It hits like a champ. One day I want to get a Syrian, since I am of Syrian decent... And Zen I will never forgive you for selling that Syrian hookah you infidel!!! ....JUST KIDDING!!!!

from what i have seen people saying they were able to switch over to hookah then after a while they just lost the whole jonesing they would have when they needed a cig, they still want hookah but not the whole freaking out about to kill something.

if you just quit a pack a day habit you could probably be ok with 2-4 hours of hookah a day. i would just go with the if you want it do it for a while and see how that is, you will still probably save money by doing that compared to cigs.

when im smoking regularly ill do 1-3 bowls a week with friends (not having one of my own), once i get mine i know there will be a good week with 7-10 bowls in it then probably go down to 1-4 a week probably averaging around 2 but we will see
