Make sure that your coals are cooked thoroughly, if not, you will feel sick. I get the same thing when im using other coals because im used to coconut based ones like coconaras and CH coals.

Yeah i used to have the same problem so like gr33n said, make sure the coals are fully lit. I recently just switched to using natural coals and it is easy to tell the difference between the two so maybe try some natural coals if you can as well.

I also noticed last time I used QL's that if you put on a windcover you can really taste the coal. If I'm forced to use a QL I don't use a windcover.

use natural coals, eat before, drink something while you smoke, dont take a hit more often than 2 a min or so, dont inhale really deep just about as deep as a normal breath. and dont use a tobacco that has a lot of nicotine

some people just need to build up a tolerance

was it oil of wintergreen that was your mint extract?

that may have caused some issues, a little in your system is fine but that may have messed with you if it was.

i personally dont mix anything in the base, and i suggest not doing it until you figure out your hookah sickness stuff

What do people generally consider a "fully lit" quicklight? Generally what i considered it was when the burning and sparking is over and you can blow on most of the coal and it'll be slightly lit. Some other folks seem to wait 4/5 minutes after this to consider it fully lit.

I am always concerned that my quick lights are always not fully lit as well. I would stand over my stove and hold the quick lights in the flames for a good 5 minutes since I would be afraid that they would not be fully lit. Partially the reason why I just switched to naturals since it doesn't take too much longer than that to light them and they don't give off any taste.

i dont know how the CH qls are but for the standard domed disk type QLs i light them so they spark then hole a flame to the bottom or blow ont eh bottom until it glows red fully when blown on (by that point the top will be glowing as well too)

they still leave a taste to me though and give a slight head ache (but i can smoke 3-4 hours with naturals and no head ache)

It could just be that you're really new to hookah, I remember my first time I felt really sick afterward too.



I'm planning on researching household remedies to ease things like hookah-head, upset stomach, etc.

Planning on chain hitting tonight and try a bunch of things, I'll post my findings if anything seems to make a difference.

I've researched countering the effects of nicotine and came up with nothing. "hookah head", upset stomach, etc. are all 99% caused by nicotine. The only thing I can think of is to just smoke more often so your body gets accustomed to it.

peppermint may help some with the stomach stuff, and my with the light headedness but it may make it worse since it increases circulation, not sure how that will work out
