Do You Smoke Hookah/shisha?

43 posts in this topic

Do any of you smoke hookah (for the sake of clarity, I call the waterpipe it's self a hookah and the tobacco shisha)?

 

I don't smoke weed, though I'm not particularly against it or anything, but a few years back my husband and I picked up a hookah on a whim and loved it. All of our friends loved it, so we eventually invested in a 4ft tall, 4 hose, rotating hookah for our Monday "party" nights. We named the hookah Leonidas, and our small one is named Frodo (because he's small, but makes smoke rings like a champ :P)

 

We've had ours for about 3 years now, and I love making different blends of shisha (we've even made our own from scratch) and trying them with different liquids in the base. Neither of us smoke cigarettes or cigars, and never have more than the occasional drunken social cigarette, especially after getting the hookah.

 

I know hookah smoking isn't too popular here in the States, but picking up popularity with the college crowd. So, just curious, anyone else enjoy an occasional hookah session?

I did it a couple of times in my early twenties. Me and my friends would all sit around the kitchen table getting drunk smokin the sheesha. I didn't think it was too bad although i was always rather intoxicated when i did it.

Be not heard of it either but saw some of them on sale in a Manchester newsagents at the weekend, they had them as shishas, I just thought they were another style of bong for smoking pot lol. It's not something I'd be into either

Some people do use them to smoke weed, but they are an extremely old tradition in India and the Middle East. They've found them as far back as Mesopotamia.

This coming from a long term smoker... A hookah is pretty much the most hazardous (to health) way to smoke tobacco and so no, I wouldn't go near one.

Not heard of it, and if it is illegal and I had heard of it, I wouldn't be mentioning it on a public forum. Btw, I'm a cop :rofl:

weed is a plant too. Anyway, whatever you smoke, so long as its not synthetic - that stuff is lethal

Ok I'm from the states and my sister does have one so I am familiar what can be used in it Shelby your right it is tobacco but you can also put pot/weed in it to which can be mix with the tobacco...which is illegal in my state and hers...and throughout the U.S. unless for medical purposes and then there is only a few states that allows that Cali I'm pretty sure is one of them.. it's only legal in 18 of the states..

I said nothing about smoking pot. I myself can't stand pot, it makes you stupid and tired, plus hungry. So it seems a waste of time to me. I wasn't even trying to address you actually. I hit multiquote and taped the wrong post. So sorry to seem bitchy. I was just putting it out there that shisha was tabacco. Yeah , I have heard of people smokin pot in them, and can't see why they woul. The one time I tried tabacco in it tasted good, but the smoke was harsh, so I can't imagine smoking anything else in it. I think colorado might be now to with cali. I know it isn't legal her in nm. I mean whoever wants to smoke it I don't care. Just am not a fan.

Wanted to add that eighteen states is a lot more then I thought there were! Wow, crazy

Hookah is legal as long as you're smoking legal substances. lol

Shelby, if the smoke was harsh, it was set up wrong. You don't burn the tobacco in a hookah, you're heating it up and drawing the vapor down through the water to cool it.

Yes, you still get nicotine like from a cigarette, but little to no tar or carcinogens. It's safer than a cigarette, though certainly still not safe. You're still smoking tobacco, there is still the risk of lung cancer.
