It's obviously not good for you but I really don't see how it could be worse than cigarettes. It has less nicotine and no added chemicals, however you are inhaling more smoke. No actual scientific studies have been done so unfortunately there is no concrete evidence one way or another.

Smoking anything is bad for you.
There is definitely not 30x more tar/nicotine though.
we'd all be buzzing our minds out
it's probably less dangerous as cigs, but it's still dangerous

heh his has been discussed many times :P

It doesn't matter if something is tobacco free or not (like herbal hookah tobacco)...Any form of smoke is NOT good for your body.

Don't believe that BS that hookah is "okay" because its "filtered through water" if that was true, I wouldn't have been having that smoker's cough last week.

That is true :P BUT! This is the first time I've ever had "smoker's cough" that I recall ever since I started smoking hookah (Oct 2005). So that says A LOT! hehe

I guess in a way, if I've been smoking cigs instead of hookah...I'm sure I'd be getting this cough every week instead of once a year with hookah.

I guess in a way...Hookah isn't AS dangerous as cigs...But it still is bad for your body since any form of smoke is bad for you.

I just hacked up a piece of the Holy Cross right now.

I haven't looked into this "smoker's cough" long enough to be able to give you a good explanation, but all I can say is, "please, clean that closet girlfriend,"

I don't know about which is worse chemically. Although I assume cigarettes considering th list of additives, most of which are considered poisonous on their own or are classified as hazardous waste. Hookah has tobacco, honey, glycerin, molasses and some flavoring... pass me the hose please.

But I do know that hookah is less habit forming. It is far easier to pull out a cigarette and light up than it is to set up a hookah and start smoking. Cigarettes have almost no limiting factor like that.

god if i had a dollar for every time ive seen this.. now lets think some common sense here. first of all all these news shows and scientists and what not are only saying this becuase they are told to by the government becuase the government wants to controll everything!! second, all these "tests" they say they did on hookahs are inconclusive becuase they are using the same tests that are similar to how they test cigs for all their dangers. Hookah tobacco and cig tobacco are not the same when it comes to how its processed and made not to mention all the dangerous and harmful chemical additives that they put in cigs and the way a cig is smoked and the way a hookah is smoked is not the same. Last but not least the whole "tar" issue. its b/s when it comes to hookah. Yes tobacco can produce tar when burned enough at the right temperature which is around 700-900 degrees and cigs burn at 800 degrees when its lit and you are smoking it so yes its been proven that cigs produce tar which goes into your lungs. Hookah tobacco however could produce tar if it was lit and burned but it is not. Hookah tobacco is "baked" in the bowl at 350 degrees at the MAXIMUM so theres no way it can produce tar. Now with all that being said yes hookah smoking is definately Not good for you but its definately not as bad as cigs that alot of people are trying to make us believe.
