A cool thing to do with smoke rings is blow a slow one (don't make your
mouth all small... try to make the ring larger) then suck it back in.
It gets all streched out and looks really cool.
As for the french inhale, its the exact same concept as circular
breathing (if you play the digeridoo or trumpet). Just open your jaw
while exhaling really slow (to keep a constant flow of thick smoke to
you mouth) then close your jaw with your mouth open. That should make
the smoke flow out slowly and smoothly (it will look really smooth
instead of broken up like it does when exhaled forcefully) then all you
have to do is breath in your nose... EASY!
Smoke rings are a little harder. I have found 5 ways to make them.
1. Fill your mouth with smoke, make an "o" with your mouth then flick
your cheek. It makes little ones. If you do it really fast you can make
it look like a ring machine-gun.
2. Make the little "hu" sound while keeping your mouth in a ring shape. It makes o.k. rings but not the best.
3. Use the back of your tounge and throat to push the smoke out your mouth while keeping smoke in it.
4. Use the same motion as I mentioned with the french inhale, just
faster. Fast enough to get the smoke to come out as a nice ring.
5. This is the hardest and the one I usually use... I don't know
exactly how I do it but its some kinda combination of opening the mouth
from the "o" shape while pushing up with the back of the tounge (first
put your mouth in the o shape then open your jaw while opening your
I found that combinations of all of these are the best to use for
tricks because each method blows diffrent speeds of rings and diffrent
sizes. If you combine them you can blow rings through rings through
rings... looks sick.
One more tip on makeing a slow ring... if right after you blow a thick
one inhale a little bit (evenly with your mouth in a semi-o) and it
will slow down then make a tight o and blow a fast one through the
The only other trick I know is the snap inhale... get a mouthful of
smoke and then lift up your tounge and slap it down and inhale really
fast afterwards. Looks cool. You can also use the tounge snap to blow
rings (I guess I know 6 ways to make rings).
Good luck! All it takes is practice.
Oh one more thing... I've *heard* that if you blow a slow ring and put
your finger in the center of it and *slowly slowly slowly* draw a
circle in the center of it that you can make the ring expand to the
size of your head.
