Well, at least for me, if I would get a buzz either way, I would go for the billowing clouds of goodness. Inhaling is the best/only way to really smoke Hookah.

When it comes to hookah smoking, asking "do you inhale?" is like asking "do you drive with your eyes open?"

I definetly like to inhale, love the feeling of having your entire face covered in smoke and feeling all that thick flavorful smoke on the exhale.


Agreed

^ right.

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.

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

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...
