What Brownman just said makes my brain want to explode. I don't even know where to begin. It's all the same? No... it's impossible to get full flavor and smoke anywhere near thick if you're not inhaling. Straight-up impossible. You'd need a mouth with at least half the volume of your lungs. And even then, it seems to me that, for lack of a better explanation, the smoke hits more of your taste/sell receptors on its way out of your lungs and into your throat than it could if you just take it in your mouth and blow it back out. I could be wrong -- I really don't know what I'm actually talking about, but I know that from mouth puffing to full inhalation, the flavor experience differs as much as night and day.
Is it even possible to get buzzed off of hookah without inhaling? It's not like a cigar where the nicotine concentration is so high that it can effectively buzz you by entering your bloodstream through your mouth tissues. I suppose it's theoretically possible, but it seems highly unlikely (unless, of course, you're smoking a poorly packed bowl of Tangiers.) Are you sure you're not inhaling? To clarify, "mouth puffing" is when you expand the space inside your mouth to draw air in (cigars, cigarettes... you can do it while holding your breath); inhaling is when you expand your lungs to pull the smoke into your mouth, throat and lungs.

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.

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

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

Let's face it. Everyone knows someone who's still alive only because prison orange is not your color.

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!

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...
