I own a hookah and it's a great. I enjoy doing smoke tricks and it's awesome to do with a bunch of friends when you have nothing better to do. I don't use tobacco, I use this herbal shisha stuff which has no nicotine in it so it's not as bad.
I like to put some weed into the bowl too - you get a great head rush.
But smoking shisha is not something I do everyday because the shisha itself is pricey.

I used to smoke that, sometimes it made me wanna throw up, and take a shit! and it's more harmful thant cigarettes!
But there are some shishas that have good taste, if it's made with the grape aroma or pineapple for example. I remember, my friend and i, we used to go to a place where you can smoke shisha and watch some belly dancers dancing on some traditional arab music. Great atmosphere.
I was a regular clove smoker until the ban, so every now and again I'll go for a strong pot of tea and some kind of spiced shisha with friends. It's good times, but I do feel a touch wheezy the morning after.
