trying to set up a hookah when drunk probably the worst thing to do and the biggest mistake i ever made, worse then the ones i said earlier. thank god it wasn't my carpet and that his carpet was black. i cant even tell you how hard it was to set up and then manage to get the coals on the hookah.

please no one do that. it was such a bad experience

i did that. $60 seemed like a good deal at the time and it came with some free stuff. and what ticks me off even more is i remember seeing mya QT's there for $40 but at the time had no clue what they were and how much better it would of been. i think the dick head at the shop just needed to get rid of the hookah's that weren't selling, and told me the crap hookah was a good one.

The first newb mistake I made was the first hookah I bought....complete trash for smoking. I also did not know that I needed coals to smoke it. I had enough sense to get some tobacco....but I had no idea that it was something I couldnt just "light" and smoke.

Then.... when I got the coals... I didnt know that I needed foil or a screen.... so I ended up smoking Al Waha with direct contact.

It was then that I decided I was a newb and had to research online.

So really, in all, my biggest newb mistake was going in without researching and learning beforehand.

Packing bowls too close to the foil. Buying a cheap ass hookah to start. Getting crushed by Nakhla before I could handle it. Doing anything before I searched and watched the videos to keep me from having anything to write about in this thread

1.Letting the shisha touch the foil
2. Using generic quicklights
3. when a coal falls off the hookah let it fall, dont try and be a hero and catch it

Where to start?
Having a crappy Chinese rig, NEVER washing it (And smoking multiple flavours). Not letting coals ashover. Didn't know about foil, so I put the coal on the tobacco.
Overpacking heat sensitiv tobacco.

All those mistakes corrected one by one, the first few sessions was pure hell!

Wow...crazy thread revival!

My stupidest: trying to fully purge a Maya QT - I got so annoyed I kept blowing into the hose harder and harder. Needless to say, a lot of water blossomed up the stem, into the bowl, between the grommet and all over the ash tray.

Like many other, buying a crappy chinese pipe hookah locally, is this ugly 2 hose, and I paid more for it then my KM .

That, and using Ahkla QL's, god they stink and add a horrific amount of flavor.

I'll probably be seriously laughed at for this one: When I first started out with my pumpkin, no one told me how to set this shit up. And my friend at the time said that she knew, but obviously didn't. So, I had no idea that once you lit the coals(QL) you were supposed to get them red, well there I was trying to smoke the shit with black coals. Had the worst sinus inflammation the next day. Did some research for myself and did some serious forehead smacking.

I'd pick everything up locally... Crappy shisha... Dumpy coals... Cheap Chinese two hose... Everything about what I was doing was an inferior smoke.. Then I found Hookah Pro! My eyes were opened..

when we first bought our cheap little gas station hookah i had no idea that you needed coals and was really confused as to how to light the wet tobacco with a lighter lol, felt like an idiot when i found out that a little foil and a coal help out a ton, after that i watched a bunch of youtube vids that taught me a bunch, thanks god for the internet
