Default Headaches...

Sometimes after a hookah smoke I get terrible headaches and all i can do is take some meds and lay down. I noticed it happens when i smoke instant lights, I think this could be the problem. Does this happen to anyone else? It does not happen often I'm just wondering if its the chemical in the coals that's causing it.

switch to naturals and see if it still happens. Most likely its from the qls not being fully lit when u use them

as long as the coals are fully lit and they're not rollands you should be good. also sometimes when i'm dehydrated or haven't eaten it'll happen to me. hasn't happened a while though

Yeah man Byron is right. make sure you eat something before hand and drink while smoking. Naturals are the way to go as BIGPOOPA said.

i had a crazy headache yesterday. i was using a-f ql's, (yeah i know. "EEEEEWWWW") and i was smoking a-f vanilla. it didn't burn or anything. i got a somewhat strong buzz from it. but then i got the worst headache of my life. it was terrible. it was probably from the ql's.

I use natural now but I have a roll of instant lights just in case. I think when I don't fully light the natural it gives me head aches too.

Trust! Lolz! I do get headaches after smoking too many times a session. Funny story, I once smoked 6-7 rounds with friends in a closed room. By the time I went downstairs for the toilet I fell down once (hit my head somewhere, I still have a scar). Alarmed by the noise my friends followed me but I was already woozily walking up the stairs. Almost to the top my eyes rolled back and dive bombed down (my friends didn't manage to catch me, I fell on my back, not my head, thank god!) Eep!

But yeah, usually its good to eat beforehand, have a big glass of cold water around, and take a couple of aspirins when you notice the headache's just starting (don't wait until your temple's throbbing).

wow I have never been hit like that from smoking, I think your just a light weight. kidding.

Maybe its because I'm in a closed room, I like no air flow so i can blow better smoke rings.

Lolz! No, I really was a lightweight then, it was when I first started smoking (I've never smoked cigs before either). It was a bad reaction, but hey! I have a shisha badge of honour *touches tiny head scar*

Air rings are great, I can barely do it but my sister who rarely smokes can do it perfectly. Unfair!

haha I got a purple hookah heart too but mine is from getting burned with coals.

as for the o rings no matter what people try and tell you the key is learning how to slowly blow out smoke first.

I have tried everything with regards to making rings, but to no avail. I reckon its just something I won't be able to do, like swim (I've had proper lesson yet all I can do is float on my back) ^_^

It might be the Anise in the double apple. Some people are allergic and don't find out until years later in life.

Piece of advice with QLs, if you are smoking in an enclosed space, LIGHT THEM ELSEWHERE! I had a period of about a week when I was smoking in my "man-cave" (Ok, so it's just the nook where my computer is) and I was lighting them near my hookah, and since the airflow is non existent and it's a small space, the smoke hung around. I got migraines the next day every time, until I realized this was the problem (Carbon Monoxide poisoning SUCKS!) So next time you use a ql, light your coal outside (or in your bathroom with the fan on, that sucks the smoke out well too if it's too windy outside), and see if that doesn't help.
