Default Inhaling

How often do you personally do it in a session? Every hit? 50% of the hits? Never? Personally I Inhale about 30% of the time during a session. I like to see the clouds.

I inhale the entire session ... and still like to see the clouds I may try a different approach the next time, so that I am not inhaling 100% of the time!

Well, I have never smoked cigarettes so I dont know what I am doing I guess. I assumed if you draw the smoke into your mouth and roll it around your tongue to get the flavor that would be considered not inhaling. Thats what I do most of the time while smoking. But when I inhale it into my lungs it takes a concious effort to do. So while I am watching TV or playing a video game I usually roll it around in my mouth to get the flavor all over my tongue and dont really think about inhaling it much.

...but when you suck in the smoke, doesn't it automatically go into your lungs?

You can choose not to inhale by not drawing the smoke into your lungs. A short shallow sucking type action using your checks or a shallow,short inhalation using you mouth and lungs results in the smoke filling your mouth. Doing it the second way will still result in some smoke in your lungs about 1/4 or 1.5 of the time unless you actively try to check your self. Basically, it's smoking the same you smoke a cigar but a bit more aggressively and often. That is basically the way I smoke as i'm not interested in clouds and I never really like the sensation of making smoke in my lungs. Of course I never liked cigarettes so that probably has something to do with how I smoke as does the fact that I have been using pipes and cigars for year before I started to use a narghile.

Mayb eI am inhaling everytime I draw from the hose, but my perception is the same as Hajo's. I smoked cigars for years prior to hookah, I feel like I have to make an effort to draw the smoke into the lungs to inhale. I can tell when I do it because there is significantly less smoke on the exhale. Duuno, maybe its just me.

it all depends on how lazy i feel at the moment when im inhaling. i will either do a "full" one or just take very small ones into my mouth but rapidly.

I'm with what husk said. Inhaling usually is an active effort on my part and since I don't think it adds anything to the experience of smoking I don't bother. Besides, I don't have a single taste bud in my lungs.

It depends on my mood - sometimes I want clouds and such not, then I inhale. But, due to my body hating the serious lack of O2 that produces, I normally am reduced to normal "sips" afterwards.

If I have time and just chill, i don't inhale. (Sorta like I smoke a ciggy - don't ask). It always me to go much longer w/ out any side-effects.

99% of the time I'm inhaling. When I've hit my hookahs g-spot, and the clouds are coming I'm usually smoking more then breathing.

I'd say I inhale the whole session, unless it gets harsh. If it get's harsh I'll clear the vase of smoke and make needed corrections. First hit after making corrections I'll take a little mouth puff to taste it, if it's smoking right I'll start inhaling again. I may be different from most smokers but I take huge hits all the way through and most sessions are over in 45 minutes or less.
