Topic tags/keywords: hookah smoke shisha relax

Do we have any hookah smokers here on lumberjocks?

I enjoy a nice smoke session every once in a while and relax, maybe watch a movie, or listen to music.

Favorite brands or flavors of Shisha you use?

We had a scooby-doo hookah in college but uhmmm i think the “ingredients” were different.

No hookah here..but plenty of e-liquid!!!!!
Quit puffing analogs and went to a PV…......feeling better every day!!!!!

For smokers looking for a better way just search out e-cigs. There is tons of info out there, now let me tie this back to this site…......I am working on making a box-mod.

Never tried a hookah. What is the difference between that and smoking tobacco??

The hookah is the device, the water filtering pipe. Shisha is the name for tobacco when using a hookah.
One of the major brands of shisha tobacco is Starbuzz. The ingredients in one can is:
Virginia Tobacco, Honey, Glycerin, and Flavor.

The basics is that it is flavored tobacco leaves.

Nicotine in a 250g can is 0.05%
Tar is 0%

One hookah session can last between 45 minutes and 3-4 hours, depending on how large the bowl holding the tobacco is, and how often you are taking a drag.

A regular size bowl holds between 25-35 grams of tobacco. Larger bowls could hold up to 100 grams, but that is overkill.

I usually smoke for an hour at a time at my house.

Step 1: Get a hookah

Step 2: Get some shisha

Step 3: Put this shisha in a bowl, covered with aluminum foil with holes, and coals to heat.

Step 4: Smoke!

After that heart attack back in july last year, I came home to zero pipes, zero smokes, and a bad sense of smell. Haven’t lit up since. Do I miss it? Sometimes. Happens when one quits “Cold Turkey”.

I have a couple of hookas (although where I bought them – one in Turkey and one in Syria, they call them nargile). I loved the Apple or Cherry they smoked there – just a beautiful smell filling the night air. I rarely fire it up these days – alas I can’t find anything here in Portugal to put in it.

What’s your choice of e-cigarette and where do you get them?
I’m switching from analog and would appreciate any direction.

Last I heard, my boss is contemplating making a hookah PV. He does a lot of metal milling and makes his own PVs (most of which he sells)

The joke is that the IT dept would have the PV hookah in the office and we’d take communal drags.. LOL
