1. Maybe you smoked on an empty stomach?

2. Maybe your coals were not fully lit?

3. Maybe your body was going through some sort of unbalance (at a molecular level)?

4. Maybe you did not breath enough?

...more info would be nice?

Sometimes when u don't smoke for a long time it happens that your nicotine tolerance is lowered and hence u could get buzzed by even AF or SB ... However when you smoke more frequently, your nicotine tolerance goes up and you do not get buzzed that easily even by stronger stuff.

I advise u when this headache hits u, take two tablets of Paracetamol (Panadol, Tylenol ....any Paracetamol brand) and it will help

I think its the shisha, I just got some AF grape, date June 08. It tastes like crap. It's an almost rancid, overly sweet grapeish flavor, that has the most stems I've ever seen in shisha. If this is how AF is, I don't know why its popular, as its crap. I also got some AF Melon to try, and it was completely bad. I have never, EVER, had shisha that I had to wonder if its bad or not. Even Romman was better than this crap. From what is being reported here and in other forums, AF is going downhill, and has been for awhile. I picked up some Layalina Grape a few months ago from my local shop to try, as they don't have a wide selection, but it was surprisingly good. Smoked great, tasted as close to grapes as you'd expect. All in all, FAR superior to AF grape that seems to be regarded as the best grape.

I'll probably be getting rid of it soon, probably have atleast half a tub left..

Drink water. The smoke also dehydrates you and if you're not drinking an appropriate amount of water you might get bad headaches.

Remember, water, not juice, not powerade/gatorade. water.

also, as nasty as this sounds, if you're noticing you're feeling extremely dehydrated, mix in a small amount of iodine salt with a glass of water and chug it down. The salt helps your body to absorb the water faster.

Such a shame that this company is going down the hole. And seems as if they don't care, since I haven't seen a AF rep come through here.

I've only tried their grape recently and it's decent. It did smell a little bit like ketchup. I can say though the quality of their double apple has degraded. I'm gonna try AF when I go back home in the Middle East and hopefuly the stuff they export in the local region is better than what they export to North America.

But anyway, I highly doubt the headache is because of AF, it's not one of the stronger brands. Could be chain smoking/coals/smoking on empty stomach.

I smoke AF and Nakhla with the same coals, pipe, hose, bowl and foil.

I swear, I get headache from AF and I don't get it from Nakhla.

Sorry guys, but i am being furstrated by finding out that Golden AF it is not worth the price.

Yeah, it really sucks..they were doing just fine, now they're kind of like a sinking boat that refused to have a few holes boarded up. There was a guy on here for a bit who just absolutely loooooved AF who would get upset if people ragged on it, but the truth is the truth. AF is dying, not much we can do to save it, no acclimating, no company letters, etc. It's all up to them. Not everything is losing its flavory goodness though, some of their stuff is still tasty!

As far as your headache goes, it sounds like it was just bad shisha if your setup was good, you had eaten, and you were drinking water.
I bought some AF White Grape a while ago; it does not smell like ketchup, it taste amazing, it gives a great buzz, and there are very few stems. (I've been smoking for over one and a half years now and I can still get a buzz-- not all the time mind you but from AF Grape, defiantly)
I really hope all this talk about AF going down hill is a lie; they make some really good shisha. I would hate to seem them go out of business.

Starbuzz makes a pretty good white grape. HH does too but not too impressive.
