I would just leave it at a friends house and go over there to smoke it. No point in getting your parents upset with you.

Most definitely. Just smoke somewhere else. I mean it's not worth your parent's kicking you out over it. Esp when you have no where else to move to at the moment.

I like this answer. don't even need to give it to a friend. I keep mine at my friends hose where I hang out the most. It's just convenient for me to have them thre alredy rather than transport.

It really is best to be honest and not incur unhappiness.

Tough, some parents are strict, and no amount of evidence or convincing will change how they feel about the subject. I was lucky, my parents gave me a pack of cigs when i was like 14 and said smoke, they would rather let me smoke the crap infront of them than in secret, that way they won my trust. I can seriously try almost any substance, aslong as they know about it. I dont smoke cigs, do drugs or drink excessively. As a result of trusting parents. Explain that to them and the world of living with parents will open up. If they still wana be theyr old selves, get a job and move out. gg

my parents got eased into it, when i went to off to college that was one of the few things to go do (even though i am in a larger city, wtf) so they found out i go to the hookah bars some times, then my friend came back from being stationed away for a while, i introduced him to hookah at the local lounge and we would go down there 2 maybe 3 times a week to see people we knew and smoke. then he got a hookah so i would just go chill with him at his place. when i was getting ready to move into my apartment i was going to buy a hookah but didnt know how to really tell the rents, then there was a nice little thing about what middle easterners do for vacation and they showed come people at a cafe smoking hookah, and i was explaining it to me mom a little better and said i was probably going to get one. "o ya?" from my mother and i told her how it was cheaper, cleaner, safer for me to get my own than to go smoke at a bar with the amount of diseases around this city.

and my mom was a cardiovascular nurse specialist and my dad is a safety freak (did S&R, environmental clean up, was a lawyer) but when i got my hookah the first day me and my best friend (that ive been friends with since we were like 4) came over and my mom came out side, insisted she get a picture of us and started referencing the caterpillar from alice in wonderland. only thing is when i go back home i cannot smoke inside

your of legal age, you parents can only control you so much, out of respect you should probably leave you stuff at your friends place but your not breaking the law in any way, if you explain to them what it is, how it works, that its legal and probably healthier they may call down

and as to the tar debate, "tar" is anything other than nicotine so water vapor in is that measurement, a lot of the time, but from most of the good articles ive seen that set everything up right the tar is minimal to none, and from my personal experience comparing cigs to hookah, i feel hookah has very very very little if any tar

this is a normal thing for parents to flip about, give em time and i mean your 18 your able to make your own choices in life the sooner the folks realize it the better off all of you are.

to add to that either keep it at a friends house and smoke it there or keep it in your room with parents agreeing that you wont smoke it at home

No that is false, Yes, It does produce as much "smoke" as a whole pack of cigarettes would.. But the smoke is completely different, and not harmful..Whoever is writing those articles is giving false information to try to make hookah seem bad, It is intended to make alot of smoke but what they don't realize is how much healthier hookah is than smoking. I sing for a living so I wouldnt smoke if it hurt my vocal chords, I've been smoking every day for about 6 months and i have noticed no difference.

well, it pretty much goes like a couple ppl said. Their house, their rules. The thing is, I do hide it in my truck, the only place I smoke is away from my house. When it's not being used, it's under my back seat. My dad thought it was a gun case and was wondering why I had a "pistol case" in my truck and looked inside. lol I never smoke at home, it's just that they found the hookah. It's just that they wont fall for things like trying hookah, they both would kill me if I asked them that.

I have a really weird case. At first I told my mom that I hookah and that I use to smoke other things, which I did and stopped because I hate it. And then I convinced my mom into trying it. But then a few days later I was smoking in my room with like 3 other people and I asked her to try it but she just said no. After my friends left my mom came downstairs to tell me not to smoke too much. And now she thinks that someone one day will sneak in other drugs other than tobacco into the hookah and I can guarantee that that won't happen. Now she doesn't want to see me smoking it in front of her but allows it (I think). I think she's just scared of it.

worried parents have irrational thoughts and do irrational things. just look at it from their point of view and don't be a dick about it. they'll eventually come around.

yeah i agree with dunkle, don't believe everything you see or hear or read. 1 hookah session is probable equal to 3 or 4 cigs and shisha doesn't have NEARLY as many chemicals or nicotine as cigs

Explain to them that you know hookah is still smoking and is by no means good for your health, but isn't nearly as bad as cigarettes and other things. There's not nearly as much tar production as there is in cigarettes because you're not burning all the tobacco with a direct flame, there isn't as much nicotine, and there's no poisonous additives, just washed tobacco, molasses, and glycerin. Be like hey, it's something i really enjoy doing, and there's a lot of worse stuff you could be doing but aren't. And it's just a way for you to relax, and won't make their house smell nasty as well. I can definitely understand hard-headed parents, but if you go at it with an educated and compromising approach you could maybe wind up convincing them to be alright with it. Maybe even get them curious enough to try it themselves, that's what my parents were like when i first told them about it, now me and my parents smoke shisha all the time :P

Yea, my parents dont care, but my brother who is a dentist is home for like 3 weeks and he yelled at my mom for letting me smoke. I want to move out and go to college but i still have a couple months..in the mean time, im just gonna smoke when my brother is not home, and make sure my door is closed and i have my vents taped up with the window open, thats how i can kinda get away with smoking it in the house

same thing happened to me.. my dad smokes cigars so i tried to argue that but he said he started when he was 40. honestly leave it at a friends house and do it there. You don't want to cause unnecessary trouble at home.
