Default Anyone ever have this problem?

Last night I got my new KM in and I set it up with a phunnel bowl. I wasn't used to a hookah that smoked as well as this dose because my last hookah had tubing half the size. So about 2 hours of smoking it I got up to go to the bathroom, and with in a few steps I got so light headed, passed out and hit the floor. Luckily I was with a bunch of friends and they helped me out. but i scared the crap out of them.

Has anything like this happened to anyone before? It's never happened to me before with my other hookah, and i've smoked the same shisha from it as well.

First question what type of shisha you smoke?
Second What kind of coals, QL or Nats
Last Do you wait till the coals are completely lite before smoking with them?

Congrats on the new KM its a work of beauty if i do say so my self

this can be common for people that aren't used to smoking. it actually happened to me for the first time last night in a long time. make sure you're hydrated and eat something before smoking. if you start feeling like a headache is coming on, stop smoking immediately because it'll only get worse

it was a few hours after i had meal from a local diner, but really the only thing i could think causing it would be how much more intense the smoke is on my KM then my other, cheap chinese, hookah.

I think you had a nicotin flash, cause havanna got a strong basement tobacco.
Also it could be that you didnt drink enough while you smoked or you had a oxygen deficiency ^^

i`ve only gotten a little light-headed once, but i think that also had to do with me not eating enough that day. a mars bar really helped to get the blood sugar level on par again.

try not to lean back when smoking, iv heard this makes you more light headed, something to do with blood rushing to your head. also you could try walking a bit every 5 minutes just to make sure that you are not always in one position.

My friends say they went back home on vacation and ran across folks w/ hookahs, shitty ones. They said they were spoiled by me and my nour and KM.

I think you just got greedy with the smoke. Remember to take puffs every now and then and make sure to stay hydrated when you smoke.

+1 on the drinking and eating prior to smoking. Keep drinking while smoking. The key is to keep hydrated prior, during and post. If you sit in one position too long, the blood pools in your legs. When you get up, the blood can't return to fast enough, and you experience transient blood pressure drops. When the pressure drops your brain is without O2/blood and you pass out. After you fall to the ground, your BP goes up from the position change and you wake up. Serious injury can result from blacking out (falls). Sorry for the medicine lecture, but I'm an ER RN and Medic. If all else fails, see your primary care provider. I'm sure the first thing he or she will tell you is "smoking is bad for you." LOL
