Default How often and what effects??

Hey guyz!! So I was wondering... how often does everyone smoke and have you noticed any differences in your health since you've picked up the habit?? I got my hookah a couple of weeks ago and I've probably smoked every night since I've gotten it. What do you think? One side effect I've noticed is I seem to wake up w/ a stuffy nose...

hookah shouldn't affect you greatly.
people smoke packs and packs a day of cigarettes and it only catches up with them years later.

since hookah is more pure than cigarettes i doubt it will affect you a ton.

hydrate yourself more, i noticed that also when i first started. increase your fluid intake and it will pass. smoking dehydrates you

just hydrate and you'll be fine for quite a while. you may want to keep up with some physical activity if you plan on smoking for a long time, but you never know. my grandpa is 74 and smoked cigs every day of his life since he was 13. he's also a huge drinker. some people just pickle as they get older.

I've been smoking every day for the past year, ive only gone about 10 days without smoking.

I play a lot of tennis but haven't noticed any difference, but when i go for a run i do lose my breath quickly but this is probably due to asthma :S

Ive been smoking for years but started to smoke more regularly in the past 6 months and i find that when i wake up i have alot of phlegm and shit in the back of my throat, which i have cough up in the morning. Also i happen to have a chest infection at the moment but not necessarily related to me smoking hookah.

I wake up the next morning with a drip in the back of my throat and a little bit of a sore throat, nothing extreme though and the sore throat is probably because i sleep with my mouth open.

I generally smoke once to twice a day. Generally I notice no difference, however at the moment I have an upper respiratory infection and definitely notice a difference there =P

I wonder if the stuffy nose and sore throat are from a certain brand, like the unwashed or something?

Don't kid yourself, this stuff isn't good for you. Its not as bad for you as it could be though, its a pretty balanced thing. I smoke about once a week at most, but people I know who smoke significantly more are fine.

Just smoke and see what your limits are: there is no shame in missing a few days to see if you feel better or worse. I always know that when I start really craving hookah, I should take a week or so off, but thats just me. Moderation is definitely the key, so figure out whatever is right for you and stick with.

Also, and this is really tricky: if its making you unhealthy, or you get cancer, stop smoking. Thats all there is to it, really

is it bad for you? definitely. So is riding a motorcycle but i still do both ^_^

But i haven't noticed any decrease in my brass playing or physical dexterity and i smoke generally 3-4 times a day... But i also get the phlegm in the back of my throat, that's just because the membranes in your throat are putting it there to attempt to rid toxins from your body, hence hacking and spitting it up.

If you smoke often, try to also exercise often to give a good balance to your life.

well i have been smoking almost everyday for the past year, i dont really notice a big difference when i run. But i do bodybuilding and when i bench press heavy weights i cant do as many reps for some reason for example..i bench 160-170pds and i usually do 10 reps but recently i can only do 8 ..i dont know if its because of the shisha or the fact that i rarely do cardio cause im lazy lmao...is it bad for you ? yes it is..but i figure i only have 1 life..have fun lol..everyone dies sometime, if u lose 2-3 years cause of hookah..at least you enjoyed your life haha .

Hmm I've smoked my hookah 4 days in a row just recently and I'm starting to have breathing problems. Due to the fact I have asthma and it's very very cold where I am right now is a bad combination. I get the phlegm in the back of my throat sometimes too. I guess I'll monitor how many days it'll take until I feel "normal" again.

I smoke on a daily basis for more then a year now. And normally I have no problems, sometimes I have a bit of throat problems in the morning (phlegm in the back or a bit soar) but this only happens maybe once a month.
Anyway this could also happen when I did not use the hookah. So I keep on smoking
