One sunny afternoon in summer of 2005:
A friend and I went to the park with my small egyptian hookah. When we arrived and wanted to start smoking, we noticed, there was no coal. The coal was still at home ... but why should we go back? It was a distance of about 1km.
So we did the silliest thing, I ever did with a hookah: we put the shisha into the bowl, lighter on it and smoking it directly. Fire instead of coal. It was awful and an incredible buzz!

but yeah ... what shall I say? I'm still alive!

my noob mistakes were over packing the bowl, not fully lighting the ql's, washing the hoses with water (rust), washing the hookah and laying it down to dry (crappy chinese rig that also rusted fast), and not getting a hookah with a purge because as a noob u tend to burn alot of shisha haha!

Like a lot of users here, I put the QL coals on before that turned grey. Man I got so light headed that it seriously made me want to fall asleep. I got really tired and sorta sick to my stomach. I won't do that again.

I know exactly what you mean, this is one of only 3 brands (others are romman and pharaoh's) that my local shop carries.

Oh, another noob mistake- buying pharaoh's for the price of starbuzz at said shop. Wtf was I thinking back then.

Using dish soap in my hose and buying Layalina. Turns out the weird taste was from the Layalina and not the dish soap though, I was pretty confused for a few days, even bought a new hose.

not waiting for the shisha to bake before trying to smoke it
putting to much water in the base
and sometimes lighting QL on the bowl if i was outside.

Buying a box of Rolland QL's.
Forgetting to put water in the base, and wondering for two or three draws why there was so little smoke, and why there wasnt a bubbling noise. (that was like a week ago..... jack daniels clouds the judgement lol)

Buying from a local shop, Yea my thingie on here says noob, but I've been through my good and bad times with my hookah, didn't know there were hookah communities like this, great GREAT resource, but yea buying from the local store was my worst mistake, pain alot of Al-Waha, when I could have been buying it cheaper in bulk on the web.
That an not cleaning my hookah after 10 smoking sessions.....omg that was gross.

Not cleaning my hookah enough...
Over Packing the bowl..
Using QLs....
Not letting the QLs heat up enough (i did that so much i wonder if my lungs are weaker from it)
Allowing the scallimod to burn the tobacco
using too much water
allowing milk to bubble up into the hose
allowing coconut milk to bubble up in the hose
BELIEVING NAKHLA WASNT AS GOOD AS I THOUGHT....some asshole convinced me for like 5 minutes, but that was bullshit.
Washing a nonwashable hose
Burning carpets
Thinking that I could use the hookah i left for my frat parties for personal use

among many. i learned from experience sir.

-getting a pumpkin hookah and tobacco but no coals.

-tried to light it with a lighter cause i was anxious and was like "how bad could it be?"
its pretty bad.

-not joining the forum sooner after spending money on alot of hookah hookah flavors that were disgusting and made me want to vomit

-using quicklights for a long time

-blowing coals in my kitchen to get them ashed, black spots on linoleum now

-buying a butane lighter to light coals FROM A GAS STATION, over priced, coffin shaped and ran out of butane in like a day.

-packing too much

-getting frustrated and having bad sessions and trying to pack and smoke like 7 bowls a day in an effort to get a good one, made me sick as hell, worst headaches ever.

letting drunk kids stand up and imitate a kat williams skit while smoking, using silver flint hookah coals, filling the base with pure tequila, washing a leather hose, throwing coals over the balcony and starting a fire, knocking the coals over- picking half of them up and leaving the other half to burn a hole straight through the new cell phone


...the list goes on

no eating before smoking, and then not drinking water... that was a mistake i made a few days ago. i was sick all day >.<. Basically thinking that, since i've been good at this for so long that i can't make mistakes.

Thinking every QL was the same and just bought the cheapest one.

Over packing the bowl and putting too many holes or too less.
