So... are you inhaling, or not? wacko.gif blink.gif unsure.gif

You don't mean that one puff = 10 seconds right? That'd be a huge hit, given it wasn't really slow...

If you can "exhale" (expel all the smoke) while holding your breath, you're mouth puffing. All you should have to do to "exhale" a mouth puff is push your tongue to the top of your mouth.

Sorry to drag this out so much, but this is almost as baffling to me as someone saying that they chew their food but they don't swallow it. I'm not saying that you are inhaling, but people need to know when they are, and somehow many don't.

I get asked this question a lot, just because Im always trying to get my friends to come smoke with me, and Ive thought about it and tried it both ways and Ive decided its not the same without actually inhaling, and for those people that "mouth puff" try it, and then exhale through your nose, cause I tried "mouth puffing" and then found out I was inhaling. Eventually I worked it out without inhaling eventually, just didnt seem like a true hookah smoking experience.

So my thoughts on it? Its really hard not to inhale, and if you spend the time working it out, its not worth it

Nope i take a big 8-10 second breath in and exhale it all in one go.. i dont think its inhaling, when i inhale i get a tiny bit more smoke but the flavours the same.. i also take small hits as well.. mouth puffing 4tw.. i do it for relaxation and the buzz/flavour

laugh.gif Well, that's inhaling man! You're breathing in for 8-10 seconds... where do you think it's all going? laugh.gif Your lungs will rot like the rest of ours!

I have to ask though, if you think that is mouth puffing, what do you think inhaling is?

unsure.gif Alright... well... I guess I'll have to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that your mouth has roughly the same volume as a small watermelon.

Okay...... Hookah pipe in mouth and not inhaling? Isn't that a little like "I'll only put the head in....." WTF?

laugh.gif I knew there was a better comparison I was searching for!

The thing is though Rani, I'm convinced that most people who say they don't inhale actually ARE inhaling, but through some strange deficiency in bodily awareness sincerely believe that the smoke is not entering their lungs!

well I mostly inhale. but I'll just hang the hose at my mouth and puff on it once in a while and let the smoke waft up into my nose as well...

for me I prolly wouldn't be so crazy about smoking hookah if it weren't for exhaling big fuckin clouds of smoke...so there's that psychological part as well...

I do it both ways. Sometimes I just pull the smoke into my mouth and then blow it out, and sometimes I fully inhale. You get some flavor either way, and you also get the nicotine. Nicotine is absorbed through the mucous membrane in your mouth, otherwise there wouldn't be any point to dipping or chewing tobacco. An alkaline environment in the mouth enhances the nicotine uptake, so you may not want to drink anything that's acid like soft drinks or citrus.

The easy way to know if you're inhaling or not is if your lungs expand. If you are sucking on the hose and your chest begins to expand, you are inhaling the smoke. I always inhale, I dont see a reason not to.

Tend to inhale, allows me the benefit of large smoke clouds, more smoke to blow o's with, and personally i find it less silly looking than those who try to make themselves on get it in their mouth and not their lungs. :)

I agree with this guy in this thread that suggested that may be people don't know that they are inhaling and not mouth puffing (as strange as it may sound). I mean, someone mentioned that they only mouth puff and went on to say that the "puffs" are about 8-10 secs, when a mouth puff can't possibly be that long.

My wife doesn't inhhale. She just does a mouth puff and like 5 bubbles come out pf the stem. Of course, this is when she is smoking with me and the vase is already full of smoke. I don't think you could do that by yourself.
