  1. Paste the following in the search box: "So I Bought A Smokerlyzer" Lots to read and a bit of idle conversation but I think there is some valuable information for you in that thread. Good luck. Take care of those babies.
  2. 8 to 10 times a day? When does she sleep or shower? I am also a father and I smoke hookah in the house when my kids are home. The kids have usually gone to bed upstairs and I smoke 2 floors down in the basement. I keep the bathroom exhaust fan running the whole time and usually until the next morning. Carbon Monoxide would be my primary concern. I have set off the CO detector a couple of times in about 10 years. It hasn't happened recently. The CO levels in your blood become elevated when you smoke hookah or otherwise breath in CO. The hookah coals produce CO which is present in the hookah smoke as well as in the environment where the coals are burning. You wouldn't cook with a charcoal grill in your house, would you? Of course that's not a fair comparison, but I'm sure you get the point. When we have a party, my kids as well as other kids are welcome in the basement while we have a hookah going. Neither I nor other parents are concerned about second hand smoke due to the different way hookah tobaccos are smoked compared to cigarettes, cigars and pipes. With that being said, if you have concerns about second hand smoke, don't let me change your mind. I'm no expert or medical professional. I don't know you and you don't know me and I don't know the whole story about what's going on in your house, but based on your post, here are my thoughts. If I thought I was doing anything to harm my children, I would stop. Your wife should either smoke outside, chew tobacco or get on the patch. What she wants to do is less important that the well being of your children. When I start a hookah, I'm going to smoke for at least an hour and a half. Sometimes I go 6 hours. Applying that to your wife's 8-10 times a day, that's 12-60 hours a day. I understand that that math doesn't make sense. With that frequency, I'm guessing that each time she smokes is much shorter than the amount of time that I smoke. Even if you are counting each round of coals as a "time", that's probably, conservatively 4-6 hours a day. I usually smoke once a week, sometimes twice. When I do smoke for 6 hours, I will notice that my heart rate increases significantly when I go up stairs. The CO is preventing my blood from carrying enough oxygen to support even very mild activity. A headache is not uncommon when I smoke that much. I wonder how much time she has left to be a mother or a wife after all of the smoking? If that's literally all she does, maybe hookah isn't the biggest problem in your house. The bottom line is that your children are having headaches which is the body's way of signaling trouble. Kind of like the "check engine light" for people. There can be many causes but it needs to be addressed. Smoking hookah in the house would be the obvious place to start solving the headache problem.
  3. There are a lot of new brands hitting the market. Reminds me of when everybody and their brother were releasing starbuzz copies; just rebranding tobacco from Jordan. Lots of new stuff to try, but I never have had time to try a bunch of stuff. I liked it better when I knew what I liked and just kept that around. Looks like everyone is trying to copy Tangiers now. I guess it's time to venture out and repopulate my go to list.
  4. I had some Nakhla peach the other day. Not as good as Mizo Peach. I really miss the Nakhla of a couple of years ago. Ice Apple mixed with cinnamon was great. Mizo Blueberry and Mizo Lychee are tough to let go of as well. Maybe they will have a come back.

    Info for newbie wanted

    I replied but it's not approved yet because I included some links.

    Shisha from pipe tobacco?

    I guess I can't post a link... Check out Dominik's Honeymolasses post in the How-To-Workshop section.

    Shisha from pipe tobacco?

    I haven't tried making hookah tobaccos. I leave it to the professionals. There are some brands that make pipe flavors that you may want to try. If nothing else they would set the bar for you. This guy seems to have had better results than what you are describing.
  8. I don't know first hand about what's going on at Nakhla, but I do know there's very few choices at online and local stores. Luckily for you, left over Cardamom stocks probably won't sell out for years.
  9. I'm interested in your thoughts on the Serbetli. It seems to be much more widely available lately but I haven't picked any up. I'm really bummed out about the lack of Nakhla. A guy at a store here said all the prices got jacked up after they got bought out by that Japanese company. Looks like most people are just selling what they have in stock.
  10. Bring him in for some hookah so he knows the joy he was keeping from you. What did you order?

    New come new rig

    How do you like that flavor? What does it taste like?

    Heyo!

    Welcome! Hookah is quite different from other forms of tobacco consumption because you don't burn the leaf (hopefully). It also isn't good for satisfying a nicotine craving because it takes quite a bit longer to get going than a cigarette. When your hookah shows up, we'll be happy to help you get started.
  13. Improve two lives with one buzz?
  14. Premo Status probably just expired. Are there any Mods here? Mush hasn't been on since New Year's Eve. Good news! I just helped my Aunt order her first hookah. I'm excited to have another hookah owner in the family.
