Make Me King
Join Date: Nov 2008
I smoked with some friends last night and thought it was fun. I was wondering if anyone here regularly smokes with a hookah?
I want to get one and have found some on ebay for what seems to be pretty cheap, but I want to know if the taller ones (22in and up?) are worth the extra money.
Also any suggestions on good charcoal and tobacco?

My brother does, from time to time. I can ask him. Or if you like, you can pm me the ebay links and I'll get his opinion on them for you.

Hookah smokers are the ones who complained about smokers and had us banned in public places. However because they consider it a healthy smoke, it's ok for the hipacrits (sp) to use it indoors in public establishment.
Oh yea it's the in thing here in Wa.

i'd stay away from ebay. try to find a local smoke shop or check out Hookahjohn is the best hookah one stop shop with lowest prices!
plenty of shisha flavors, you can mix and match and find what you like. And really the only choice to make with the coals is if you want natural or quick light. With the natural, you'll have to heat them up over a burner before use. With the quicklights, you can just use a lighter to start it, but there is a chemical taste you may or may not be able to taste.

I don't smoke cigarettes. I do sometimes have a bowl with a friend of mine out of his hookah though. I'd say in all honesty if you don't sit there and smoke it every day you'll be ok. the tobacco is the same as you'd find in a pipe so it's not got all of the nasty additives that cigarettes do. I've never once found myself craving or anything of that sort after having a hookah sesh. Treat it as a recreational thing like the odd beer is the way I look at it and I've been fine so far. Although I'm only having a 1/2 bowl maybe once every week week and a half and it's a social thing.
On the charcoal myself and my buddy use quicklights brickettes in the hookah and can't taste any chemical taste. we usually smoke either cherry or double apple flavor molasses tobacco. lol you don't even think about the fact you're smoking though since they are very smooth. very very tasty (you actually taste what they are flavored like) and they don't make me cough or gag or anything else like a certain other substance (I'm sure you know what I'm referring to) can sometimes do.

My son has one. I tried it once with some grape tobacco stuff. It felt like I was breathing grape juice. I'll stick to my pipe.

I smoke hookah on a regular basis, but I'm starting to go back to pipe and rolling American Spirits. The best coals I've used are Three Kings in the round form. I'm not gonna go into what's the best hookah tobacco, cause that's just personal preference. But I always preferred Starbuzz and Tangiers.
