Default need help with parents about smoking hookah

Hey Guys,
I just turned 18 and still live with my parents. They still wont allow me to smoke a hookah even though i do it all the time at friends and stuff but for once i want to be able to smoke a hookah with them allowing it. Can anyone help me with a good reason to be able to smoke a hookah?

M.M.

You are infusing more culture into your lifestyle. ....?
If you are 18 and can't smoke in their house, smoke outside the house or make a deal with them to have the garage to yourself?
There's no "good" reason to smoke hookah, like health benefits, and if you have sketchy friends or your friends have sketchy friends then your most likely SOL on the social interaction aspect that could get you a win. Best thing is to just smoke somewhere it's allowed cause your 18 and it's legal?
Their house their rules. That's the law of the land, and there's no way around it.

there really is no good reason as previously stated, but it is a better alternative to cigarettes. If they smoke cigs ask them to come try it with you. one 50g jar of shisha is equal to less than one cig, and smoking hookah forces you to breath slower and relax, not to mention tastes good. so try some of those, other than that, they are your parents and it is their house and their rules. hope this helps a lil.

If you want to talk to your parents you could read up on why anti-tobacco research is total bs. I've a mountain of info i've posted here about that sort of thing but if your parents are not open to reason then all you can do is smoke while outside. I prefer smoking outside so that is what I suggest you do.

Show them what you're smoking, open a pack of shisha and let them see what it looks like, what it smells like, and give them the facts on tar and nicotine. Explain that you'd never abuse your hookah, print out information. It took a while for my parents to warm up to it, maybe it'll take a bit of time for you too?

I had a similar issue with my parents on tobacco when I turned 18 and was still in the home.

I moved out.

Agree with Lake on this one.

I had this problem. im about to turn 19 now and i have been freely able to smoke my hookah in my room at my parents house for a few months now. they are the typical anti-anything type of parents. when they found out i did hookah they were like " omg drug addict!!" and would not let me smoke in the house but i explained to them what it was, and that ive never touched any illegal drugs, and that i dont even smoke cigs. just hookah. they still dont like it but they agreed i am 18 its legal and dont care that i smoke in my room but they prefer the garage. lol. just explain to them its not illegal its much much much healthier then cigs.and its not drugs that get you high or anything and it doesnt leave a disgusting smell around the house like cigs do. just keep tryin man theyll come around eventually and if not then i guess its time to move out?

i'd suggest showing them how it's done and invite them to join you. I have a lot of father/son teams that come in to the store where the son introduced their parents to it. Also, I get alot of parent/kid orders online. I think it's a great way for parents and their children to spens some quality time together.

Good point. What i'd like to see is more of the social ritual aspect of smoking appear in the West. Using a narghile without the social ritual is kinda weird and unnatural although some times that is the only option.

i don't live with my parents anymore...but one of these days i will introduce them to hookah (neither of which know that i smoke), my dad smokes cigs so i don't see him having a problem with it

but if your parents look up effects of smoking hookah tell them it's all BS!

What won my parents over and finally got them to allow me to not only smoke but to purchase a hookah was the fact that the 50g jar of hookah shisha < 1 cigarette. That works greatly.

my parents dont approve of me smoking any amount of anything equivalent to a cigarette. yet, i smoke both hookah and cigarettes. i've had no outside influence since im the only one to ever smoke in my family. other than my grandma who carried my uncles and aunts on her back when she ran from the genocide in cambodia decades ago. my reason is that i like the physics of smoke but like that holds meaning. i do what i choose to because i do it responsibly.

Yes, as stated by Lake and John above, I would talk to them about it the best you can. Reason with them, and if you still can't get through to them, you'll have to figure out what to do on your own. However, I've never had this problem. As Lake said above, their house, their rules. Your house, your rules

I have no experience in this situation, only because I never did anything in my entire life. I mean, I tried a cigarette twice and have an occasional beer or two, but I was never a druggie or alcoholic. I would start off with making a deal with them, like smoking outside as some have stated. Once you get that through the door, you can start showing them the hookah and giving them information about it.

i have parents that are more lax on alota things but smoken and drinkin and tats/peircings are not one.

they threw a fit when i got my ear pierced they said if i ever got a tat i'd be kicked outta the hosue and blablabla

they almost booted me for smoken black n milds, finally something clicked in there heads(after i had a fulltime job and payin for my own crap) that im a grown person i take care of all my own things and that i could move out and live on my own if wanted but since i stay and help them financially they let me do what ever i want with no greif

its about mutual respect basically once you have there respect as being your own person and you respect them and there wishes things will go alot smoother


my parents hate me smoken but my dad will watch me pack a bowl and has an idea of how to now lol he is interested in smoken but just hates the smell
