“Dry Tongue in Mouth Disease”

First Iwas quite confused ,then flustered, and finally really worried! In all my years of smoking hookah it had never happened.

Every puff, every smoke tasted like burnt charcoal.¬†¬†¬† But I know how to keep my shisha from burning, was putting very little in the clay bowl so it wouldn’t touch the raised screen which I use.¬† ¬†I went out and bought 2 other types of coal ,thinking that the reason centered on charcoal.¬†¬† ¬†No change, each coal tasted so bad.¬†¬†¬† Went and got other brands but it didn’t help.¬†¬†¬† I dipped into my large collection of hoses to see if that was the problem, but I was tasting nothing but “blah”.¬† Tried my other hookahs and more of the same.¬†¬†¬† Used different shisha bowls….¬†¬†¬† maybe two weeks went by¬† ¬†& the future didn’t look rosy.¬†¬† ¬†Then it hit me,¬†¬† ¬†being a hot summer ,¬†¬† I was getting dried out and my tongue too ,from smoking.¬†¬†¬†¬† ¬† I decided to drink more fluids with no caffiene while smoking and the crisis fixed itself up.¬†¬†¬† ¬† I could taste again the shisha flavours!¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† ¬† Its a must to drink a lot while smoking, gulp,gulp.
