Default Worst session ever... help!

So i was in the mood for some hookah this morning, and decided to try out a some el baz apple. Everything went well, until right after i had everything cleaned up. I put my hookah away, and was hit with a massive headache. The only thing that helped was laying down. I got up for a few minutes to take some excedrin, at which point i got extremely nautious. About five minutes after taking the pain meds, I had to run to the bathroom, and threw up... a lot. I layed down some more, and realized that my hands were shaking, and i basically just couldn't function. I have no clue why this happened. Im kinda new to hookah, but have a good sense of what im doing. I smoked for only about 30-45 minutes (although i was puffin quite often), and the smoke got harsh maybe once or twice, which i immediately took care of. What the hell could have caused this? This whole thing kinda turned me off to hookah... a lot.. the lingering smell of it in my room is still making me nautious. Also, any tips to feel better, i still feel like garbage. Thanks.

coals not being lit all the way can give you CO poisoning. also not eating and/or drinking before smoking can get to you as well.

The coal was not lit all the way when i first started, but all of the ql stuff was gone (it was done sparking completely)... would that still cause problems?.. Ive done this all the time, i just kinda puff on it to get the coal completely going. And, yeah i did eat a before, but i was sippin some green tea while i was smoking.

yep, that'll do it. once it's done sparking let the coal ash over completely.

probably just a nic-a-fit from too much nicotine.

if the head ache is in the crown of your head though you should go to a doc/er since it could be something much worse (really doubt it but gota put it out there since my brother GF died of an aneurysm in aug and a sudden head ache in the crown of the head is a symptom)

bet you just smoked to much

I have chained smoked hookah often and don't usually have a headache like this (keyword usually) but if I do t with cigs i get sicker way easier maybe it just varys with people but at the same time the hookah overwhelm is worse i think

I know i didn't swallow any smoke, ive done it before, and then burped it up later. I guess it just was too much puffing.... wayyyy too much. And the coals not being fully lit. Oh well... ill learn from this one, i still have a massive headache.

Have you ever been much of a cigarette smoker? I think we've already established cause and effect on this one, but I'm just curious.

Eat something before smoking, take breaths in between drags, and make sure your coals are red before they are on the bowl

follow these simple steps and you will be fine.

1. wait for coal to fully light ( not just be done sparking, but ashed over completely and glowing red there should be no more then about 10% of the black left over before you throw it on your bowl.)

2. Eat First! theres a reason original hookah smokers used hookah to compliment their dinners!! also have some good drinks with you ( No alcohol) all though its best to drink water I find that a coke goes very nice with hookah.

3. Never take more then 3 puffs all at once.... take a breather inbetween every other puff...

there if you follow those you should be garunteed not to get sick...

If i smoked too much by myself when i first started i would get nauseaus.
So like the other people said, the coal probably did it ((QL's make me feel nauseaus if i smoke them too early and i've been smoking regularly for about 2 years))

Wait for the coal to heat up all the way, and just give it time... your body will acclimate to smoking a lot.

the only explanation is that the hookah gods were testing your mind, to see how weak you are
