    A friend of mine had an employee who is from Turkey.
    She went back home to visit and when she came back she had brought him a hooka and serveral different types of tobacco.

    metzger, man

    you are ridiculous

    so hookahs have been popular in my hometown for as long as I've been a teenager. About six of my friends have hookahs, and we've gone through the ~100 flavors that the local headshop has a few times over. We've, obviously, mixed and matched, we've made our own sheesha, we've filled the base with vitamin water, vodka, raspberry juice, orange juice, cranberry juice, crushed mint leaves and cinnamon into the water. However, there was one that we never tried - "Memories." On the front of a box is the picture of a beach during a beauitful sunset. Being that we don't really know what flavor "memories" is supposed to be, we don't really try it.

    One day we go in and say "Johnny (at this point we were easily on a first name basis with the owner), Johnny, we feel like we've done it all. Hookah is still delicous and all and we can all hang out and smoke Double Apple mixed with Mint (for your information, that's the best flavor) all day, but we want to try something new."

    dude reaches back, grabs "Memories" and hands it to us, and says "on the house"

    So we go smoke some memories with regular old distilled water and by god if it ain't the most delicious sheesha we ever smoked.

    This is a completely different language to me.

    also metzger what they filled the base with is not one-fifth as important as what the sheesha was

    I know, and I feel bad because I cannot honestly remember what the sheesha was! Rose and something... god it's right on the tip of my tongue.

    My dad visits Qatar once every few years. Hookah is so ingrained into the culture there nobody even thinks about it; all the older men spend their afternoon playing board games and smoking hookah in the shade.

    Apparently everyone there smokes cigarettes like a smokestack, too. I'm going with him next time he visits.

    I don't smoke cigarettes or weed or anything else but I love to smoke Hookah and I don't get to do it enough. I'm Lebanese though so that could be why.

    Rose is DELICIOUS

    Rose, double apple, mint leaf, memories, summer watermelon (sometimes)

    pick two and you are going to have a delicious smoke

    MAN I should buy a hookah in turkey, fuck yes

    can't get past the hipster-douche fad part of it

    I smoked an enjoyable cigar at a bachelor party last month though, that was kinda fun

    I have no idea what any of you are saying but from what I can glean from this thread smoking hookah is just smoking a big bong full of flavored tobacco and smoking it is to smoking a cigar what drinking Shirley Temples is to sipping scotch.

    Yeah I quit going to hookah bars because the two in Richmond are on campus and full of pricks

    I am not fond of cigars, though I will admit that I enjoy a Macanudo once in a blue moon

    A macanudo cigarillo after five or six drinks is just perfect

    Especially of those drinks are whiskey drinks, which is all I consume

    people will try and tell you that you can't smoke weed out of a hookah but they are dead wrong

    what people will try and say this?

    do they mean you can only smoke hash, and not weed?

    because that is ALSO wrong, but maybe a little understandably wrong, since is hash is what a lot of people smoke where hookahs are from.

    Hash is harder to smoke in a hookah unless it's very good black hash

    blonde hash is certainly a nono

    Its as much about the whole experience as the actual smoking itself.

    they're $12 in the city you whiny baby

    also, yeah, a lot of douchebags smoke hookah, but hookahs are so cheap and it's so nice to be able to smoke inside your house that might as well just buy one.

    Hookahs are more fun than cigars for three reasons:
    1) The tobacco is soaked in flavored molasses, not just flavored on its own. So it's delicious and it sits different.
    2) You can smoke inside and it smells FANTASTIC. Not like "man these cigarettes smell good to me, a smoker" - I used to smoke hookah when my dad was out of town and he would come home and be like "holy shit this place smells delicious what did you do"
    3) It generates more smoke than other forms of smoking, so it's awesome for blowing smoke rings. Also, if you talk just after drawing the smoke in you sound like James Earl Jones underwater.

    Also it's my favorite kind of social activity. You're sharing something, but there's no reason to be competitive because there's easily enough for everyone. You're doing something with your mouth and hands, but it doesn't demand attention or get in the way of conversation. Hookah can lead into a great conversation, but no one is ever going to be like "what are you guys talking about, we need to get back on the topic of hookah."

    so it's pretty great for socializing

    Yeah I'm pretty sure it's cheaper to smoke grass here than darts. I stopped doing both long long ago, though, so the economics of it are lost to me.
