is sheesha that bad?
    #2378017 - 02/26/04 04:05 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

sheesha is the name for the sticky, wet, hookah tobacco right? i've been hearing that it has little to no nicotine in it and very low tar...aparently it isn't too bad for your lungs at all. i know this could be a myth but i've read the package it comes in and it has a very low tar and/or nicotine amount printed on it...just wondering if anybody knows the real deal about this stuff?

it's not that the tobacco itself has low nicotine and tar...it's the way you smoke it. since you smoke it out of a hookah, without ever actually burning the stuff with a flame, and the smoke is filtered through water so it cuts down on the shit that gets inhaled.

for a 250g jar of tobacco, you get .5% nicotine.

I've owned a hookah for a year about now, and it feels heavy on your lungs after a while.

i was smoking it every night the summer i got it, and id say i still smoke once a week.

you'll notice that if you are the only one you'll have mad troubles finishing the bowl by yourself.

It does vaprorize the tobacco, but if you clean the hose you'll see whawt im talking about....its just dirty! :smile:

at least 1 day after a big session i feel pretty bogged down, but its still a blast and it tastes great.

i used this site to get mine:
Hookah-Shisha.com

and this is my hookah.

if you were thinking about getting one, id suggest a larger size, as smoke flows easier...thats the only thing i dislike about my hookah.
