Default Need help, had a bad first session

I had a bad first session with my new hookah -_-

The smoke was VERY harsh...and I felt like I was getting WAY to buzzed after like 5 hits! Now I feel like crap, and 45 minutes have passes since I smoked.


Any suggestions?

I had 2 Belgian Instant Lights 33mm on a small Egyptian bowl that came with my hookah.

Here is a link to my exact setup-

I was using Al Fakher and HH. The AF seemed a bit more harsh, though.

Im not familiar with Belgin quick lights, but in my experience 2 qls is way to much heat. 1 should be fine. Ive never had a problem with AF being harsh, or giving much if any of a buzz.

you can put 3 coals to get the smoke going, and take one off once it starts. then put the 3rd back on when it does down

Also forgot to mention, always make sure your coals are fully lit. Dont put them on your bowl if theres any black, espically with a quick light because there may still be the lighting chemicals still on it. Smoking with not fully light coals can also give a huge headache.

stay hydrated to avoid a headache, and eat before hand, but drinking lots of water will help prevent a headache, also try using some natural coals (heated about 8 minutes glowing red), this has helped me alot.

The ONLY quick lights I'll use are Three Kings or ******* Hookah. If you buy Three Kings, be VERY careful not to get knock-offs. The real ones come in tight rolls, like you wrapped them in tin foil. The knockoff rolls come in loose wrappers with both ends heat sealed and no markings. Also, the legit ones only come in the standard size- the oversize ones are fake. Oh- and any 3K box that has plastic wrap is FAKE.

If you get either of those brands, let them fully light. This means blowing on them and having the entire coal turn red- any black and there is still unburned lighting chemicals you'll be smoking. Getting them fully lit takes a good minute or two for the 3K, and about a minute for ******* coals.

that's interesting about the Three Kings, makes sense because the local shop here sells the knockoffs (which until I read your post, I didn't know they were knockoffs) no wonder they were horrible, like crumbled so easily

Yeah, it's really sad what's happened with them. Since they are made in Holland, I don't think there is any copyright to the name in the US. As a result, there are about three companies that make knockoffs. You'll know the real ones right away- they will light up much quicker, burn hotter, and ash almost like natural coals. Next to the ******* Hookah coals, they are the best QLs out there and better than 90% of natural coals.

Try finding a local mediterainian market, if you see hookahs on display that means they sell coals and *******, that most likely will be authentic


(sorry for my spelling :P)
