um, idk what your doing to set up your rig or if you just have sensitive lungs but i smoke 2-3 bowls a day and dont have a cough or anything, i probably would be better off not smoking but what ever. the reason i cannot run far or do much athletic stuff is because i havent dont crap for a while, most athletic things i do are walking 4 blocks each way to 1 class and blowing glass (but thats more weight and endurance of weight than cardio)

Agreed... I'm sure smoking doesnt help me... I havent developed a cough from it. I have allergies so I cough from that. I'm not athletic at all and the farthest im running is to my car. lol.

I've developed a cough, but not entirely from smoking hookah. It's a combination of being sick and smoking. Gotta remember, you're putting some nasty stuff into your lungs, even if hookah smoke is a lot less harsh than a cigarette. Give the hookah a break for a few days.

Maybe it has something to do with the free shisha being given away for reviews that require you to have 50+ posts.. Idk, though.

Nicotine paralizes the cilla in the airways, so even is hookah has less tar its still possible to get a cough because the cilla move mucous and particles back up to be expelled. If they don't work you cough it up.

Man, easy on the dissments! I did like 40 min of stair climber that day, and just sayin its much harder to workout after smoking, period. Smoking is smoking no matter how you put it, you're still getting shit into your lungs. 4 blocks of walking is all your activity? Keep smoking 3 bowl/day without staying in some kind of shape and l think you'll have trouble going much further...

its wasnt really meant to be a harsh comment, the curse of text vs spoken word.

i walk around a lot, all my classes i am active in for the most part ( studio art classes so im walking all around a metal studio back and forth and glass blowing so its constant sit stand sit stand walk around back and forth etc)

i need to start working out but i just dont have the time right now and i am at least moving a decent amount compared to most peoples general day

Yeah all smoking has irritants involved. Some people can stand more than others just like cig smokers some cough others dont. I hate the fact that an enjoyable act such as smoking is harmful, but it is what it is. The doctor one time told me that my blood sample had a higher about of RBC's than that of normal people to make up for oxygen loss caused by the long sessions of hookah. Not really any harm in uped RBC count, but food for thought.

That's cool, sometimes it is a curse. I just enjoy smoking and enjoy working out, so I gotta balance both. It's good that you stay active on the daily, maybe more important than going to the gym.
I just am stressing I hope we all take care of ourselves... while enjoying life.

ya, my prof for glass blowing said he only goes to the gym so he can lift/work heavy pieces of glass more easily, and i think it pays off for him cause he does some really nice large stuff... then again he also skates or used to at least (hes really messed up his knee so idk how much more he does)

ya i cannot run just to run, i would run down the street and be dead but could go play paintball all weekend and not get winded (probably all the adrenaline) but just running also kills me knees. i got lucky in the weight department and lost 25 lbs when i stopped eating anything with gluten (found out i have celiac disease which basically make gluten a poison for my body).

mr2guy hit it on the money why there's a cough. Smoking irritates the cillia, they cause mucus to get the outside toxins out, and we cough to get the crap filled mucus out of our system. Be THANKFUL that you have a cough, it means your body is working lol. But since i started smoking, i've had constant mucus in the back of my throat and if i don't constantly hack it up, it will build up and FORCE me to cough.

as far as smoking vs physical activity, maybe it just affects everyone different. Some members here say that when they DON'T smoke they are much more apt to perform physical activity... but some members, myself included, don't notice any decrease. Bodies are unique, it happens lol.

Photolinger: Maybe you could try doing some lightweight strength training? I'm very overweight and am in the process of getting in shape and i can NOT run that much to get in shape cause 1. i physically can not do it, 2. too much running could destroy the joints in my legs cause of the stresses.
Having 1lb of LEAN muslce ((not heavy lifting muscle)) will burn 500 calories per day... so maybe hit some low weight strength training to burn the calories your goin for? It might even be less detrimental to your asthma. Just some food for thought

Well i have a hookah cough. I dont smoke cigs, so it has to be. Its probably cos i do some stupid stuff like used bbq charcoal once and i dont mind burning the tobacco abit. Its also probably got something todo with the humidity here which is close to 90%

you should try swimming, its supposed to burn the most calories and be the lowest impact

Probably scorching the tobacco. Is the tobacco touching the foil and burning?

I smoke 4 to 6 times a day simply because I have a hookah that lives next to my desk in my office and the hookah is going most of the time. I always inhale as I am addicted to nicotine and need my nicotine fix regularly.

I have a cough like crazy. Much like a cigarette smoker but that should be no surprise considering my smoking habits.

Yeah, my lungs have certainly been affected by smoking both hookah and cigarettes. My voice comes and goes at times. But I suppose it's the risk we run and the price that we can pay.

Don't break out laughing during your pulls haha

Well i'm not actually sure what the cause of your cough is, I run only 5 miles a day but stopped cause of my broken wrist. It's hard running with this soft cast I have on.
