Default Healthy Hookah Lungs

Alright, so I'm sure many are afraid and even scarred to bring up healthy issues involved with smoking....anything...weither it's cigars, cigarettes or our beloved hookah.

Our lungs are at risk yes?

Well I'm here to help. Through my own personal experience with smoking, I have learned a way to keep my lungs in tip top shape, and do not laugh, for you might think it childish.

Breathing exercises.
Seriously, I'm glad I'm a musician because otherwise I wouldn't have realized how much it helps me!

I will post up some exsample of breathing exercises on here when i get back from class.

But a warning, if you have never done a breathing exercise....it WILL knock you on your ass. Make sure your by a bed or something, because the "XXXX" or "buzz" off of doing this at first.....is massive and can often leave one disoriented and sick.

Basically your conditioning your lungs, it's like a work out, it gets easier and easier each time, and you are able to do more.
Plus Breathing exercises, are just freaking good for you in general.

Nice idea Pixelz. I learned Breathing Gym from Pat Sheridan and Sam Pilafian. I'll put a video up in a few days ((i just switched to linux... so i need to find programs for everything all over again :/ )).

I'll add to your exercises with a few that are more beneficial for hookah-healthy uses and not the ones meant to aid in musicality.

reminds me i need to pick up my digereedoo more often and start trying to learn bag pipes again. i dont worry to much about my lungs since i dont cough and all like i would even after one cig... and the fact that im in a studio that has silica, aluminum oxide, metal and glass dusts all in it do hookah is a much smaller thing than everything else

Yeah, I run every night, and the air is already very thin at my high altitude, so my lungs are already strong as shit to begin with. I also draw through a smaller gauge hose (which is much harder on your lungs) so I get my exercise through that, believe it or not.

As as a vocalist, smoking ANYTHING is bad, but generally I smoke 2 bowls a day and if anything it helps soothe my throat and at the gym I still have no issues with keeping my breath unlike cig smokers!

If anyone wants a great book on breathing techniques, pick up a copy of this book by a Professor at Indiana University. Its excellent. I own a copy of it for improving my breathing for saxophone.

Hey! Don't lump cigar smokers and pipe smokers in with cigarette smokers... If you are inhaling cigars and pipe tobacco you are going to have more lung issues than breathing exercise are going to help. It's hard to really hurt your lungs with smoke that never reaches them.

i'm definately good for breathing exercises. I have to smoke hookah outside due to the rules at my college so after smoking two bowls of El Nakhla shisha with that overwhelming buzz the 40 stairs i need to climb to get to my room while carrying my 28" hookah are horrific to say the least. Its not fun getting back to the room and collapsing on a bed from exhaustion; and i'm in pretty good shape.

I totally agree with this topic. I work out daily and it is important to practice breathing while working out for sake of cardiovascular blah blah...this is a hookah forum. Anyway, I notice that my breathing, and consequently smoking, only lacks whenever I take time to sit on my ass for a month and have a break from running, working out, etc. If anything, I work out to smoke more hookah

Any hookah smoker can benefit from doing breathing exercises, even after every session. You're exercising your lungs just by blowing out your hose every session. blowing air through a constricted area is a great breathing exercise. Just inhale and exhale through your hose a couple of times after a smoke session(just be sure that your line is clear first haha)
