Using QL coals is probably the biggest mistake I made as a noob.

[FONT=Verdana]Using QL and not heating them up all the way first before using them. It would make me so lightheaded I remember falling down the stairs once after taking a few pulls.[/FONT]

Burning my carpet, letting fat chicks smoke and pull the hookah over 2x in one night, letting my friend move the coals (he may as well have dildoes for hands).

They are inferior to natural coals.

You will sooner or later come around to naturals... Why use QL's anyway? They are covered and saturated with chemicals and more often than not lend taste to your smoke. They cost more than double the price of naturals as well.

my rookie mistake was buying one of those crappy lil 20$ chinese pieces of shite, putting 2 ql's on at the same time, and then thinking it was a bad flavor of shisha because it was burning. And then regretting ever smoking hookah when my skull was being ripped in half two hours later. thank god ive evolved.

If you're going to use ql's (and there's honestly nothing wrong with that) I'd say go with John's ******* hookah QL's.

Best I've had.

Thinking raising the water level would cool the smoke more, then wondering why it was such a hard pull. Buying a chinese cheap hookah for $70 and thinking it was decent with its 5/16in inner stem diameter.

EDIT:
As an aside on ql's, i smoke hookah because it's more natural, to try and avoid all the wonderful cancer causing additives they put in cigarettes. As far as I can tell using quick lighting chemicals to get coals hot brings those chemical additives right back into the picture. and I don't care if people say getting it red hot burns off all those chemicals. I will never believe they aren't still there in some residual form, and subsequently in your body.
Plus ql's taste like CRAP.

Noob mistake:

Bringing my hookah to parties.
Never asking friends who smoke my hookah more than I do to contribute somehow.

Trying Herbal shisha. Ok well I won't say that but I didn't like the flavor I got. Only using one 33mm ql my first bowl. Easily remedied but not nearly enough heat for the huge bowl.

+1 luckily it wasnt too big of a party and only one girl took a header into the table and knocked over my acrylic base hookah. i hate when people cant handle their alcohol.

dropping coals on a somewhat new hardwood floor. that spot is conveniently covered by a rug now.

spending so much money on QL and shisha from my local smoke shop, everything is at least $2 more than it would be anywhere else.

Using a pumpkin hookah and thinking i was a bad ass lol.
Buying over priced tobacco from the locals.
Using QL for about 2 years
Smoking in my dorm room while my room mate was sick. (It cost me a $185 ticket)
Telling people that when the tobacco is harsh its better so i can start a new bowl lol.

And last letting other NOOBS handle the coals, since they like to drop them and not tell anyone.
