Default what is your smoking ritual?

just wondering what everyones usual sessions are like. if you eat before, during or after, what you like to drink while you smoke, the number of people you smoke with, etc.

personally i like to eat a nice meal before i smoke and make sure there is some juice or reebs to sip on, and have some chips or other snacks around to eat during the smoke. then we turn on some music and sit around socializing and sometimes playing video games. or watch a movie, but not too often. if its not just me by myself or me and my lady smoking, there is usually 2-3 other people there, all though it has been numbers up to about 6 or 7. typically we are inside when we smoke but outdoor sessions are great on my friends balcony at his house, the sun setting usually turns the lake all sorts of different colors. so whats your ritual?

when my woman is here we smoke a bowl in my room while we lay on the bed talking. usually stuff gets pretty x rated, i dont know if its because im such a stud or because the hookah

but if shes not here, heres my ritual:

-before anything i prepare the hookah and the bowl then...
-i eat usually a small meal.
-grab the hookah and head to the porch or my room
-if im in my room i play red orchestra or another pc game while i smoke
-if im on my porch i just sit there and smoke with my eyes closed
-as for food during, never! ruins the taste of the shisha for me, but i do drink something but it cant be something overpowering like soda, so something like water.

there are rare times i will eat something during, but thats usually when im with a group.

I usually I smoke after dinner. I have to have something to drink usually some iced tea.

If I am drinking alcohol with it I try to match the flavor of shisha with what I am drinking or something that goes well with it.

This weekend it was jungle juice with sweet melon Al Waha with jungle juice in the base, excellent combo and nice buzz!

i smoke under one of two conditions, i got back from work and am killing time before i go to sleep or im killing time before work haha. i smoke inside if my mother isnt around but otherwise its outside. i make some tea while im preparing my hookah if im unlazy otherwise i grab a bottle of water or now my new "ritual" is open up a can of dr pepper made with real cane sugar. seriously those cans are the shit haha. going to have a few cans saved for permanent display. if i am making a fruit flavor and have that fruit in my house i will throw it in the blender and use it or as much of it as possible in place of the water in the base. enhances the flavor a lot.

I smoke after breakfast and again after dinner. I smoke a standard Egyptian clay bowl for the morning session with 1 Golden Coals 33mm QL. After dinner session I use the small Super Chief and 3/4 of an Exotica finger broken into 3 pieces. If the type of shisha I plan on smoking requires acclimation I'll set it out a little after the session before. Like if breakfast smoke needs acclimation I'll put it out on a saucer at like 10 or 11PM and smoke it around 8 AM the next day. Seems long but it works. No eating during the session. I drink usually water with the after dinner session and coffee with my breakfast session.

I most always only smoke after I have eaten something, I don't like smoking on an empty stomach. I like to have some ice water with my hookah, unless I am drinking, then it is wine or whatever..

I won't pass on the hummus either Good stuff, especially when smoking some hookah! Sometimes I will nibble on cheese and crackers, or frozen grapes, or whatever ...

Weekdays I usually smoke after dinner. But the weekends I try to get 2 smokes a day depending on what I am doing. I usually drink whatever sounds good during the session, dont matter much to me.

I use eucalyptus oil before every smoke. I put 2 drops on my palms, then I spread on my palms and inhale, this signifies me getting ready for the session.

Take out hookah, take out shisha and accessories. Fill vase with water. Fill bowl. Grab a drink, coals, and a shish-ka-bob stick. stir shisha in bowl, cover with foil, and poke holes. put exoticas on stove, take some sips of my drank, and wait for coals to heat up. Once heated, I start blazing. 8)

I love drinking beer and smoking hookah. It's a good variance of flavors. And it intensifies the buzz.

id say it all depends on the beer though, fat tire goes great with hookah but if youre drinking guinness or new castle, tasting the shisha is nearly impossible.. im sure others would agree

Fat tire is my favorite beer but I haven't had any in a couple months and I haven't been smoking hookah since the last time I had some at home so I haven't tried it yet. I have been drinking Blue Moon the past week or so with my hookah though and I really enjoyed it. Will have to pick up some Fat Tire soon to try it out!

blue moon goes well with lemon popped in it...

sometimes i imagine the best hookah session ever, its a bit far from my "ritual" but anything is impossible

-my favorite band is playing live in front of me
-i got the hookah going good with my favorite flavor
-and i am surrounded by eastern european women
-we all have fat tires

theres probably a bunch of other stuff that would complete a good session but im tired.

hrm my ritual. Well I either get up or get home. So I'm awake.

Usually, I'll go down stairs get a coke, or a water. Look for a snack. Usually Chips, hummas, pita bread/ chips, um. fruit, something easy to eat. I'll get my other half his snack if he is home and i'll go back to the gameroom/ hookah den.
I will take out the coals, throw them on the little burner. Then I'll turn on the tv and find something to watch / listen to while i get everything else prepared. When the coals are just about ready, I'll pack my bowl, then throw the foil on, and then I'll put the coals on and then pop the wind cover on for a minute. After a few minutes i'll take the cover off and go to town.
