  1. I have not been here is a while. I quit 3 years ago. Cold Turkey. I had pneumonia and could not smoke for a while then I just never came back to it. I miss it everyday. Lately I smoked with my friend who had this super clean all glass hookah. Oh my... I think that woke up the hookah monster in me. I gave away all my stuff a year ago. Now, I regret doing that. Still thinking about investing into it again or not.

    Km Goza

    I have not tried this Goza but I use my wooden stem Goza everyday. It is the best that I have tried yet. I have been smoking with it for a couple of years now. It seems that the wooden stem absorbs the taste of the shisha. I only smoke one kind of shisha with it AF DA
  4. Check blood pressure when you get headaches. Do you drink pop or tea of coffee with hookah? Do you smoke cigs too ? What type of coals do you smoke? For me all those factors made a difference. Some shisha brands give me headaches and QL coals give me headaches. Smoking in a smaller room or basement does that too. Even lighting natural coals indoors do that sometimes.
  5. I have been planning to buy a piece of land and build a little house on it. I started planning of where to place a small pool and jacuzzi and my hookah room (Games room too for the guys when they come over). Then I thought why not have a central hookah similar to the central vacuum. There would be compartments beside plugs on the wall. You just take out a hose from there or bring your own. Plug it in, press a couple of buttons to select shisha and then and wait 5 minutes and start smoking. Some features would be: ---------------------------------- Self cleaning Use pressure or vacuum to move smoke around Manage amount/mixes of shisha used Compartments for hoses Refillable shisha tanks. Sensors in the case of leak or hazardous materials (Safety First) I know this might sound like Alice in Wonderland for a hookah smoker but how awesome would it be if someone actually builds this as a system that can be distributed and installed for many other people. Any ideas or suggestions to help me make this dream a reality would be appreciated.

    Best Shesha Brand?

    #1 Smoking Hookah is a Gozza. (Stem is wood and base is metal, hose is made of bamboo wood, Egyptian Origin) I have two and I have KMs and MYAs and many other hookahs. I have never got better taste and airflow from anything but those Gozzas.
  7. I think that anyone that smokes hookah on a daily basis should be considered a smoker. As far as finding nicotine in your blood, you can always say someone around you smokes alot. I smoke once a day but I still answer No.

    Thanks Maher =)

    My brother-in-law just came from Saudi Arabia, he was working there as a doctor. He brought me this as a gift. It is a very heavy shisha. Those colorful things on the stem feel like they are glass not plastic. Hose is made of very heavy type of wood. I am not an expert on glass work, I am not sure what's the term used but the drawings on the base actually stick out, they are not just paint. I know you guys love pics, here you go, enjoy. I like how heavy and sturdy it feels. I own a bunch of Gozza's, KMs, MYA's and other chinese made replicas. I have not smoked in this yet, but I will do it and tell you how it works.

  11. I am still an AF smoker. AF seems to be very sensitive to the setup but what other shisha isn't?! I actually smoke only Double Apple and sometimes Grapes, maybe Lemon and Mint very rarely. - I use Egyptian bowl. - I double layer the foil with Shiny side down. - I do not over pack the bowl, I keep alot of space for air in the shisha. - Alot of small holes with a a couple of large ones. - I start with two CocoNara coals, rotate them around and then add a third one when they get smaller and at the end use windcover to get every last bit of it. - I keep de-ashing the bowl by blowing air in it when I de-ash coals, approx. every 15 minutes This works for me at least 90% of the time. I get the odd bad session here or there.
  12. I am looking for the following items and I cannot seem to find them at one vendor. The reason why I want to use one Vendor is because shipping to Canada costs alot of money and I want to put all of those in one order. - CocoNara 5-10 (108 pieces boxes) - Diffuser (or set of) - Tongs (I am looking for those thin long ones) - Large Ceramic Hookah Bowl (I need a couple) - AlFakher plastic (healthy) hose (5 of them) Anyone with an idea of which vendor has all those? I am not being lazy but I went through every vendor I can think of and could not find one that has them all.

    I have been using Starlight Coconut since I ran out of CocoNara. They are very inconsistent. Some are ok, they are too fine but most break either into 4 pieces or two by themselves which caused a couple of coal accidents on my table. I would love to restock on CocoNara but they are expensive.
  14. I did this mistake a long time ago. I shipped shisha through UPS. This is going to hurt if customs catch this. It will be about $200 just for customs. =( [font="Courier New"]Location Date Local Time Description What's this? LACHINE, QC, CA 18/08/2010 10:40 PACKAGE DATA PROCESSED BY BROKERAGE.

    Ups And Canada

    Customs $13 =) I am so happy. For 10 x 250 AF DA boxes. I have tears in my eyes.
  16. My tip ranges from 0-30%, all depending how nice/busy/good is the server. I hate gratuity charge. 99% of hookah bars I went to had crappy service, crappy products and sometimes very bad manners. I worked in some jobs during University where I depended on tips for income. It is unfortunate that the owners would be making tons of money while workers are so underpaid they would need the tip money for rent/food or and tuition. Minimum wage should be raised to the point where people can survive and business owners have to consider this as a cost when starting their business.

    World Cup!

    Wow, N Korea got a beating today 7-0.
  18. I was really young when I tried my first puffs. I was I think 8 or 9 I do not remember. I started smoking shisha on a weekly basis in Grade 11 with some of my buddies in Jeddah, Saudi. Now I have been a daily smoker since 2002. My first few years I smoked Nakhla Double Apple. Now I smoke mostly AF double Apple. I am thinking about reducing the number of times I smoke to 2-3 times a week instead of 1-2 times a day, but I have not been successful yet.
  19. Well, those guys sounded like they were playing video games. "Just do something, give us a reason" Too eager to engage. Sounded like something they do on a daily basis. Imagine how many of those happen without being leaked like this. They had no right to shoot at that van.
  20. English/Arabic and very little German. I can curse in about 12 languages.

    Canadian Shisha Smoker?

    [quote name='SmokinMoose' date='16 April 2010 - 03:27 AM' timestamp='1271384866' post='463851'] Use southsmoke.com I have been using them for years and have not had any problems. Plus you need to be cautious of the amount you order. I usually order 5 250g boxes at a time. [/quote] I had two orders from SouthSmoke caught by customs. I moved to a new address since then, I will try to ship something in the next little while.

    Canadian Shisha Smoker?

    [quote name='wesclrg' date='13 April 2010 - 09:43 PM' timestamp='1271191403' post='463467'] HJ has been doing shipping to canada for a while now. dont get your hopes up so fast because many packages are being inspected in customs now, i ordered from john for a year with no problems but my last order from was opened and taxed (it was under $30 taxes and i had about 2 kilos of shisha). the same happened to another member too but he was taxed like $200 lol. many agents dont know how to tax it properly so theres a large variance in the amount you will be taxed. also, if they do inspect the boxes and find contents like tobacco or something other than what is in the description and it happens a few times they might blacklist the exporter so that all packages he sends into the country are automatically inspected. if unfortunately that is the case with john, all the packages he sends will now be inspected and taxed. all good things come to an end eventually... [/quote] Yes. My HJ order was taxed to death. It cost me about $33 for each 250g AF DA. I paid about $90 for 6 boxes with shipping. Customs charged me $110.
  23. I just paid this and it hurts. That's why I want to complain about it. I ordered 6 boxes of AF Double Apple from HookahJohn with shipping and handling $90.13. They charged me $109.02 for customs. TFOOH. I am mad. I wanna go break something. No I have to find a new way to get my double apples in.
  24. [quote name='mxtaylor' date='30 March 2010 - 04:59 AM' timestamp='1269921553' post='460688'] Have a friend in the States that you could get it mailed to, then they could mail it to you? If you opened a Fedex account in your name, he could use your acct number and it would be charged to your card. [/quote] Any package that I have received through Fedex or UPS gets searched religiously. USPS seems to be the safest bet.
