Exclamation Smoking Hookah

I'm fairly new to hookah, I mean it's a huge part of my heritage, I'm Lebanease. Now here's my question, how do you smoke a hookah? Do you blow into the hose until you the bubbling get quieter or till there is smoke in your mouth? or Do you sunk through the hose until smoke enters your mouth?

You inhale through the hose, then exhale the smoke out and away.

that a good point not just you have a purge valve but that it is working only saving grace is if you have a long stem so you feel the back pressure and stop the flood.
lol I like to check the purge valve before I put the bowl on.

haha well it's different from smoking a cigarette. you don't want to inhale it into your lungs. It's much much thicker than a cigarette smoke. Basically when you inhale it through the hose it'll pull the smoke down through the water causing it to bubble. Then it'll float back up travel through the hose. I'd compare it to smoking a cigar or cigarello. You don't actually inhale it into your lungs. You smoke it for the flavor, and exhale the smoke. Well I guess you could, but man that'd make me cough up a lung.

How do you get a decent pull without inhaling?

i d say about 98%+ of hookah smokers in the US do...i only know of a handful on this forum that don.t

without inhaling you can only take in very small amounts of smoke...your mouth is only so big...

The coals go out and or you never get it started. My father in law was trying that when we took them and he never even got it going until we started it for him.

You just suck from the hose and then you blow it out As simple as that

And dont smoke it like you smoke a cigarette! It doesnt work that way! Although 9/10 of the girls i see smoking hookah are typically smoking that way, and its fun to watch

Not all people smoke John, I have cousins my age in Damascus right now that wouldn't know what to do with one.

Don't smoke it like a cig, because you will inhale more often that you should.

I smoke a cigar by pulling with my mouth with my throat closed off. Pulling cigar smoke an inch down my throat results in massive coughing. It's a tiny hit relative to a hookah pull. If your not closing off your throat rest assured your getting a lot into your lungs. And if its more harsh than a cigarette then your burning your shisha. When my hookahs properly lit i can hardly feel any smoke going into my lungs at all.

whoa dude. i know that hookah is all about preference (inhaling, or just smoke in the mouth), but i couldn't imagine not inhaling when i smoke hookah. if it hurts your throat then there's definitely a problem. when its done right it should feel like cold air going down your throat with no burning at all.

haha, I don't get burned.This post is a lot more complicated than it should be haha. You suck on your hose, if you're not coughing you're doing it right. There's different preferences, and different techniques for each individual. Wow that didn't sound right. Hookah hose!
