Arrow Pre-Hookah Routines

I was just wondering if anybody had any pre-hookah rituals?
Before I smoke, I have to straighten up the room, put on accent lights, and good chill music. That's how I get ready...It doesn't set right with me to smoke in a dirty, cluttered room. I smoke to relax and think...clutter messes with my zen. lol
Anybody else as OCD as me?

I'm with you on that one, clean up the room. Set the lights, and usually a movie with some buddies.

I always get a beer or pour a drink and tidy up a little and find something good on TV or a good movie to watch with friends.

I usually get my grub on first. then get a drink and put on a good movie or if i just want to relax throw some jazz on the speakers. Modal, avant garde, hard bop, anything chill pretty much.

Same thing here...I can't smoke without cleaning up the area around where I'm going to smoke...Especially when I have family and friends over, just want to make sure everyone has a clean and decent place to sit back, have fun, and relax...

Not too big on the lights and music, but I always make sure it's adequate...The other thing I am key on is having something to drink readily available...I got a mini fridge that I keep stocked up with soda and water, so it's all good now...

My rituals? Put the coconara on the stove, load the bowl, find something good to drink with it, then sit down and enjoy. I do it 3 to 6 times a day so that is way too often to do cleaning

Some people know, it takes me FOREVER to setup my hookah! lol .. but I take my time and am very OCD when it comes to setting up my hookah.

I also layout a small towel on my coffee table for the hookah, figure out what I am going to watch on the TV.

I am always smoking hookah and watching My Name is Earle and The Office!

always a drink that goes well with my smoke. Usually some arizona green tea- that hits the spot, or a beer. Set up a folding reclining chair on my balcony grab my laptop and stream some music.

I usually dim the lights, put on my He-Man pajamas (they still fit), crack a Becks or a Stella, and put on some C-SPAN, nothing like enjoying some hookah AND our government at work -at the same time

So far we eat. Then I look surly and start subtly convincing the loud drunk people to find other tables. Then I convince all those people smoking cancer sticks to find other tables. Then order finish my food and ask to change my drink from diet coke to sweet tea. I am sure that will change after Christmas.

Red face Re: Pre-Hookah Routines

Usually I clean off my desk first, since Its probably got 5 dirty coffee mugs on it.

Then I clean my floor, since my girlfriend leaves her shit everywhere and I'll trip if I dont.

Once Im done cleaning up my small mess, and her huge one, I turn on the stove, then I fill my base half way with water, and use ice cubes to get it an inch above the stem from there.Next I assemble my whole hookah, minus the bowl, put the coals on the stove, pack, foil, and poke holes in the bowl, then set that on top of the hookah. Usually go pee, then I put on music, place the coals on my hookah.

Hookah goes on the coffee table, then I fix the crooked blanket on the couch... then I sit and take a few puffs, then I find something else that isnt where its supposed to be, so I put that back.

Then I stop being OCD clean and fire up the laptop to browse some Hpro while I smoke.

I make sure the hookah is clean, stem, vase, bowl, etverything, then I sit and pack a bowl, usually with friends, and listening to music, if I'm alone, some TV.

It's the same here It takes me a long time to get everything goin' Usually i clean my hookah before my sessions, than i put my coals on the stove, pack the bowl, etc. I'm not a fast guy in preparing a hookah, but it's not about that

But thats all, i do not have any special rituals before smoking, i just eat something before and get something to drink.
