I'm relatively new to this hobby but I was first introduced to this hobby freshman year in college. A friend of mine had one and he'd go smoke with other guys we knew, I really didn't smoke before hand so at first I really wasn't interested. Then one night I decided to give it a shot, and I fell in love with it. Then about eight monthes ago I finally realized going to the hookah lounge by me adds up over time so I decided to buy my own and it's been bliss ever since...

+3 on the mom hugging

Well, i used to go to the pool hall pretty often when i first turned 18 ((you had to be 18 to get in past like 9 or so)) and there were hookahs there... i had no idea what it was but my friends insisted. being a brass player, i naturally got twice as much smoke as the rest of them and thought it was cool ((I was stupid lol)). Then i met one pool hall owner who has been smoking 20 odd years ((lebanese descent)) and he showed me how to ENJOY hookah.. not just smoke it. I've bought 2 from him ((the first one being lit as of now)) and 2 more KM's from a hookah only shop.

me and some friends met up at this coffee shop which had hookahs and we split 2 of them and then proceeded in going back to there apartments for some drinks and well after a solid 7 hours of drinking and being up all night we decided to go and buy everything we needed to smoke hookahs. Man the ones at the shop were awesome. our first one by our selves sucked so badly it was terrible. Im surprised anyone kept smoking them at our place they were just awful. and now ive been smokin for 3 years and mine are way better than the local shops.

I had a couple of friend say they were getting hookah themselves. I started looking up hookahs at that time. I had seen them previously, and thought that they were for opium. NOW i find out they are really for tobacco! *slaps forehead* well I just ordered an Egyptian hookah. The Flavor selection is SO amazing I just HAD to get one. Besides Hookahs are works of art too!

I quit cigarette smoking about 3.5 years ago, and I've been looking for a way to occasionally enjoy smoking without the major health factors tied to the high temperature burning of plant material.

A few months back I was hanging out with my Arabic engineering buddies when they pulled me into a cafe that served hookah, I had a bowl of lemon w/ mint,fell in love with it, contacted hookah John, and now I smoke it a couple times a week.

Hookah lounges in Egypt are like hot dog stands and burger joints in the US (in terms of popularity and availability) ... ironically, I was out with a Yemeni friend ten years ago and he was smoking so I tried it and started smoking since then

I went to a party once and a friend of mine brought out his hookah. At the time I had no idea what it was and it really looked illegal lol. He told me it was just a hookah and showed me the shisha. We smoked and drank the whole night. After that I have been hooked ever since.

Some girls told me about hookah, never heard it before.
So next year i went to a new school and made some new friends who had one and
tried it out one night being intoxicated and it felt so awesome,
few months went by when i bought a little egyptian and then the fairytale began.

My first visit to a hookah bar was when I was 17, gotta love San Antonio lounges they never card. I went with a bunch of friends after a party & they ordered a skittle flavored shisha I really enjoyed it. I didn't go back to another lounge for I wanna sy 8 months. I bought my first hookh in July of 08 and its been glorious ever since. I'm planning on retired Snow White & getting a new one sometime this month.

About 2 years ago my friends had gotten into it and I came along to a local lounge. Before that I had told myself I wouldn't smoke, but it was just so good when i tried it. I've been pretty much hooked every since. I got my first hookah for christmas after my dad came back from Dubai and i've been learning and adding to it. I've had the urge to get a new one, because I don't even know what kind I have.

My brother went to India on a business trip a few months ago and asked me what he wanted me to bring back. Of course I said a hookah. He brought me one with coals and 2 flavors, double apple and vanilla. Not knowing how to set it up properly, I did a quick youtube search and dozens of Sambooka's videos popped up. The rest is history.

My first experience with hookah was my senior year in high school. A buddy brought me to his place to try some hookah, I didn't know what he was talking about. We stopped at a shop and picked up some AF mint, and headed back to his place. Once we hot there and I saw the hookah, I knew I had seen them before and had been interested in them. Once I tried it, I was hooked. Been smoking ever since. Five years strong haha
