Default Some Problems...

I got my hookah 2 days ago.. and iv tried smoking some al fakher grape and 2apple, the smoke isn't thick and they made me want to throw up after iv smoked it. iv never had that kind of an experience smoking hookahs outside.

i got a 30inch hookah pipe, and it seems to be in a working condition.. i have set up my hookah properly.. and i have no idea where i went wrong..

and i cant seem to heat up the coals to its core, when i heat it on the gas stove only the outside of it burns and its also an al fakher coal if im not mistaken. takes me bout 10~15 minutes and it still wont glow red in the inside

so what could've gone wrong??

hmm. i dont have any experience with af coals.

what foil, hole pattern, and how many coals are you using?

as far as the feeling sick, try not to chain smoke and it helps to eat during or before you smoke

I would invest in a cheap electric stove from Walgreens, Walmart, etc. It lights the coals quicker than a gas stove. I would say most likely it's from the coals in one way or another. I'm not a fan of AF shisha, but I doubt it's causing your problems unless you took too many hits in a row without a break or eating/drinking anything.

the problem might be with the coals.. try a different brand. im startin to dislike all af products, thats just me though ;xx excuse me

are you waiting til your coals get fully red? or if u can't tell if its red, wait til it ashes all over. you should check out a few vids also to see how other ppl are poking their holes. give em all a try, one should work for ya.
