Syrian psychologist Mrs. Wafa Sultan has her views which are making her enemies and deaththreats she mentions :

Opinion of Mrs. Wafa Sultan, voicing her opinion (right or wrong is not my intention, I take no side in this discussion, even though I can easily understand the views of the religous Moslem clerics since I hold by the Jewish Law of Torah, and I can appreciate the opinins of the secular Moslems of which are hundreds of millions worldwide too.)

She is a psychologist and here she can be heard on Al Jezeera speaking to her Arab brethren.

Are you smoking with that  dirty, smelly, grainy, putrid hose again?

Try out some of these :

I reccomend the 2 Syrian type hoses, and the cheap 100% plastic and PVC 100% ugly but they are truly 100% with no plastic taste at all, washable that will never leave a bad taste in your mouth!

. I have a few which I regularly use. The hose is medium size and very, very flexible.

“Pipe Dreams”

A pipe dream:
A perfectly clear clay tobacco-shisha bowl? Not yet invented (except for the semi clear acrylic bowls which cost a big $ bundle and break easily too).

So, how to tell if you smoked all the shisha in the bowl?
I guess its up to experience.

1) how much did you pack?
What is usually for you a half-hours smoke? 40 minutes went buy and your tongue is feeling fuzzy-you are long ago finished and if you have a good burning coal, you are getting plain heat and ashes taste.
2)did you pack loosly or too tight?

If tight it will burn for sure, mostly at the bottom.

3)type of shisha being smoked.

Al-Fakher, Al-Ouns ,Al-Qemah,Roman,Fumari,Afzal are loooong ongoing good smokes.
15 grams lightly packed of Al Fakher,Al-Ouns,Al-Qemah,Roman will approximately smoke 45-60 minutes.
The same ammount of Al-Waha, Al-Sultan, El-Nakhla,El-Basha
(same company) will smoke 20-30 minutes lightly packed.
If you have been going on longer, its a burn!
These are just a few hints.

4) when you’ve finished smoking EACH time look at what is left over.
If its ash, then next time don’t smoke that gram ammount too long. Or get a bigger bowl.
The gigantic “party bowl” which I mainly use is big enough for 30-35 grams, and since its bad to add shisha up to the top where it touches the foil and will burn, I still have room left over.

I always check the remains of any bowl to see if its over burnt. There should be left a bit of lightly cooked shisha at the bottom remaining.Throw it out!

With so many shisha brands out there herbal and regular, each company brand has its own burning time.
It depends mainly on how much glycerine is in the mixture.
You’ll find Nakhal is a dryer brand. The premium brands are dripping and smell so good even before you put them in the bowl!

Hookah Table 4 Safe Smoking

We talked about some safe smoking tips, like putting aluminum foil under the whole hookah area, not pulling too hard on the hose (bad,bad), making a non-tip base for your hookah….. or did we?
Actually, it was mentioned, but not as a special post not yet.
Of course, you might like to invest in this great simple colored plastic bowl-base.Non slippng and a perfect fit , there are small, and large sizes custom made
http://www.smoking-hookah.com/Store/Hookah-Accessories.asp
its at the bottom of he page “hookah protector”

. To make your own base for a non-tip hookah” tip” simply take a sturdy carton and draw around the bottom of your base, cut. You can have as high a box as you want, but 3 inches might be fine, or make of plywood, paint ,design and cut.
Mine sits on the 3 tiered glass table I have with a electric light on top . I had the table already. The 3 tiers are step sized. Small tier on top, second tier step bigger and the 3rd even wider with a brass metal magazine holder that happened to be a few m”m wider than my hookah base! Just dumb luck. I got it free from my sister who dumped it on me to try saving space in her house.
Try going to “Salvation Army” and “Goodwill” stores, buy a cheap table, cut a hole custom for your bowl size and nail some wood underneath to sink it 3 inches below the level of the table.
