okay heres my dilemma. im beginning spring break soon and i want to either spend 40bucks on a hookah w. shisha and coals etc. or spend 50 on an eighth of dank bud. Im not really sure which one i would want to buy because the eighth would last me a week tops and the hookah could provide me with enjoyment for a long time. so..i really cant decide. If you have a hookah, do you use it alot? If you also smoke weed which would you rather have? thanks

Buy a bong or an eighth.

Smoking hookah is worse than smoking cigarettes. I smoke cigs and I won't touch hookah unless its a special occasion.

Hookah = Shisha, noob.

A good hookah is 100 dollars+. Hookah tobacco is 12 dollars and lasts a few months.

I smoke hookah once every few weeks and I smoke weed as well. If I were you I'd buy weed and rolling paper. Hookah is pretty bad for you.

At least you get something out of weed, its cheaper, and it's not nearly as bad for you as hookah smoke.

That could not be further from the truth. That's almost a bold faced lie actually.

and TS buy the hookah, they are so worth it.

How so?

It's not the fact that the smoke is worse, it's the fact that when you smoke hookah you smoke a TON.

Hookah's are bad for you're lungs yes, but then again anything that isn't oxygen is bad for you're lungs one way or the other. Hookahs are way less harmful the cigarettes. What makes you're lungs hurt sometimes is if you smoke way to much. I mean, imagine smoking a whole pack in like two hours, you're lungs would hurt. That leads to the misconception that hookahs are super bad for you, which they aren't.

Studies show that you inhale the same amount of two packs of cigarettes when you smoke a session of hookah.

Lie.

Don't try to bull ****.

Cite that reference from a dependable reference.

I smoke hookah frequently, you just have to know when to stop.

And I know what you said is BS because everyone smokes differently, inhales different amounts of smoke. How bad something is for you that is inhaled is very different for each person.

well heres my opinion oh hookah

I was living in some dorms at a university and believe me when I tell you that was the BEST buy I purchased from that part of my life. It was cool cause it just always gives you something to relax, hangout and chill with friends. Dudes and chicks dig it so its always a socializing positive. I still have mine and i still use it till this day once in a great while. I say go for it, but dont get stuck with some crappy one. if your interested on some more info just say.

there is one thing though, ive never exactly found out how harmful it is in comparison to other smoke alternatives. Websites alway contradict eachother so idk. If someone knows the cold hard facts, please, post em.

ps. like you said, in a month you wont even remember about that mary j you purchased but on the other hand if you have a hookah....

Of course, the nicotine in tobacco smoke isn't what causes cancer and cardiovascular disease. For that, you have to look at "tar" (actually, nicotine free, dry particulate matter, or NFDPM) and carbon monoxide (CO.) The same studies show that waterpipe smoke contains 802 mg tar compared to 22.3 mg for cigarettes, and 145 mg CO, compared to 17.3 mg for cigarettes. Thus, a single waterpipe use episode (lasting 30-45 minutes) can yield slightly more nicotine than a single cigarette, and about 36 times the tar and 8 times the CO.

This, pretty much, everyone loves a hookah. It's like beer, very social, very relaxing, and it's something to do.

Quote by ScottElwood



None of those sites are very "dependable". Basically anything on the internet isn't dependable and I bet I could go find another three sites that either show inconclusive results or directly refute the three you cited.

Besides, I've got first hand experience on my side. I've never had a problem with hookah's bothering me. Not one time.

TS Just buy one, the social gratification well out weighs the inconclusive results of hookah smoking.


*edit*

And like you're other thing said, it depends on how much you smoke, and just like I said, if you smoked a whole pack in about and hour or two, you're lungs would hurt. Not to mention, I find it very hard to sit down and smoke an entire bowl off the hookah to myself.

I've heard that smoking out of a hookah is as bad as smoking a pack of cigarettes or 2 in a 30 minute session. Either way, I think smoking out of a hookah is cool but it doesn't do anything. It's just an excuse to have something to do. Doesn't make you feel any different at all.

I don't know about that last part. I've gotten a strong nicotine buzz from a hookah before, and I smoke like a pack a day...at least.

Culture varies too.

I was visiting a hookah bar which was owned by this indian dude, and I found out that in india it is common for a table of people to have their own hookah per person.

Exactly. I know there a lot of Hookah bars in Mobile where a few of my friends live (college). We hit those up every time I go down, it's really fun actually, it's like a bar, but there's never any drama haha.

why dont you just not inhale the hookah, like a cigar. for the flavor not the nicotine.

I thought that was what you're supposed to do anyway since, apparently, inhaling hookah smoke is really bad for you?

Anyway, I'd probably get the hookah.

Hookah smoke is the smoothest smoke I've smoked before (smoother than bud).. So it makes it hard for me to believe that its that bad for you..

I like smoking hookah because it's so smooth. Just dont smoke it too much. I feel sick if I smoke on it for too long because you can take those massive constant hits from it without feeling anything.

hookahs are quite enjoyable. My sister brought one back for me from Morocco when she visited her husband's family. They arent by any means good for you, but on occasion they are rather delightful
