I Quit Smoking Hookah

They're "new", have been released as products for like a year and more now. All the new products and such are doing the vape thing.

I quit coming around for a lot of reasons. About four and a half years ago I landed a new job. I was working 10 hour days 6 days a week. At the end of the day I found myself just wanting to rest and not do anything else. Time went by and I just stopped doing it. 

I also stopped coming by the forum because of all the new faces. There was a time in my life where I didn't have a lot of 'real world' friends but I saw a lot of people on here as friends. One by one they quit coming around... some just didn't have time to log on... some quit smoking all together... and some got banned. It was tough logging back in and seeing everybody was gone.

I took the first week of September off, burned up some vacation days. In the weeks leading up to my vacation I was thinking of things to do and smoking hookah was one of them. So I busted out the KM I bought from Stuie and ordered my favorite flavors. I couldn't find my old medium Phunnel so I had to order a Vortex to make due. Day one of my vacation came and I packed my bowl full of Orange Soda (probably my favorite) and felt all the memories come rushing back... The first time I tried smoking hookah, the first time I dropped a coal on the carpet, the first session I got just right (it was AF rose flavor), to the first time I got a bowl of Tangiers just right... And I realized how much I truly missed it.

A lot has changed in the almost 4 years since I last smoked. The cut of Tangiers being the biggest shock. Last time I bought some it had thick long cuts of tobacco, and now it's a moderately fine cut. 

I've been smoking from the hookah I bought from Stuie everyday for just about a month now and I don't ever want to look back. As I'm typing this I'm chugging away on a Pico bowl loaded with Tangiers ololiuqui.

ANYWAY I apologize if that was tl;dr.

It wasn't tl;dr actually it was a nice post to read, nice to hear you're back in the hobby! I hope this place hasn't changed too much for you, and I hope you come back at least every few days... This place has become quiet but some of us still lurk daily...

 

How are you enjoying the orange soda, I loved that flavor when I had tangiers. Currently smoking nak OG orange and loving it.

Well, I think you might have been before my time as well, but it's great to see you getting back into it and coming back around here! I find even month-long breaks from hookah remind me how much I like it when I come back to it.

The Orange Soda is a bit different than I remember. Back in the day it was 100% straight up orange soda flavor. Now it seems like it's orange soda-ish. The recipe has either changed, I can't get the heat just right, my tastebuds have gone to hell on me, or fuck, all of the above. I use to be able to load my medium Phunnel up, plop three coconaras on top to let it heat up, pull one off after a minute or so and chug away with excellent flavor and smoke. Now when I try that I burn the fuck out of it. It sucks having to re-learn proper heat management.

Anyway, thanks for the welcome back, guys. It feels good to be back in the fold.

You know, I actually noticed with my last batch that it seems as though Orange Soda has more of an Orange Creamsicle taste now than when I first tried it years ago. Maybe that's it? Closer to Hacitragus (which is straight up Orange Creamsicle to my tastes).

I haven't quit completely but only smoke once every couple months.. instead of the multiple times a week or day in the past. I'd say mostly bc of a busy life. I also enjoy cigars so that gets in the way. I just need to move back to the southwest so I can climb mountains and smoke on top

Yes, yes it did. I think all the nails are finally in the coffin, just one is still sticking up a bit...

Been a long time since I was remotely active on here, but I'm only smoking a couple of times a year. In college, I had roommates that hookahed so we'd smoke every few days at least. I also had a number of local friends that liked smoking and we'd frequently hang out on summer evenings and smoke. I don't have as many local friends who like the hookah (or at least that I know like it) and have been busy since going back to school, so I haven't been smoking much. Also have picked up some other expensive hobbies that have eaten into my funds (travel, scuba, cars, motorcycles).

I'm working from home some days these days, so once it cools down a bit, I plan to start making Tuesdays smoke while I work days. I did it once back in the spring, but it's just too hot today to make me want to go outside - and I've had enough carpet burns and now what we know about hookah and CO to not want to smoke inside.

Made a spontaneous order last week. Going to set some time aside tomorrow to have a nice session. Looks like this place is still pretty dead unfortunately.

I still smoke occasionally, mostly when my brother comes to town. I very rarely order anything though so it's mostly stuff I can pick up at shops around where I live now
