Hookah smoking is  also a spiritual activity. And how you approach your time smoking shisha, and the enviroment you decide to smoke Hookah in may affect how you approach your life. How you feel inside.

The famous quote for Hookah smokers says that cigaret smokers are fast paced and tense while hookah smokers are calmer. But most hookah smokers today are hookah bar smokers. They don’t make their own hookah. how is that different than cigaret smoking?

It was even more recent that hookah bars opened.

And even more recent that Hookah bars took on the loud music, over TV’s playing, with the expensive prices fast food feeling we enjoy today.

Hookah bars in tradition were friends smoking at the days end. Or time alone to think.

In NY in the early 1900’s a hookah bar was a place where Immigrants would reconnect with others just arriving and those in the same upward struggle.  But mostly a Hookah was something you brought out to appreciate a conversation in your house or in your neighborhood.

To truly appreciate hookah we must look at our surroundings and those we are smoking with to decide its spiritual effects on us. Hookah bars are not the tradition. And with the noise, and with us now not even making our own hookahs; smoking Hookah tobacco has become no better than fast food for some.

And if you look at many of the people you are smoking with regularly you may notice that they are looking tired, tense, and getting more broke and are not connected to their Hookah because they only smoke in these hookah bars.

Smoking hookah is a time to let the sounds of the air pulling up the Shisha and bringing reflections of the day to rise up. Let the hookah and silence help inspire the mind to go deeper. Relax. Let the pressures fade away. Maybe even find some new life and energy by slowing down and believe things will get better if you are going through those rough patches. And most importantly make a hookah and appreciate what you made.

getting away from bars and smoke your own hookah

Relax. Thats the point of smoking a hookah. Smoking hookah is to appreciate the calmness of the moment as you drag in the fruit flavored tobacco.  Even if your in a party and there is dancing and laughter, the Hookah smoke relaxes you as you breath it in; gives you time to reflect.   

   

   If you are a Hookah smoker at the hookah lounges, set aside a night to get away from the hookah bars and find a place to smoke on your porch, garage or beach.   

   Go to your hookah bar the night before and order some Ed Hardy Hookah from them, so that the hookah bar still gets your business, or order online from us. And then the next night go home, watch tv and smoke an argileh (Hookah).   

respect the oldschool

 

  In the traditional way of thinking, Hookah bars do not teach the smoker to make their own hookahs. And this ruins the patience and care of creating your own hookah and relaxing to your own Hookah and shisha creation.   

Smoking Hookah should change with the times, but let yourself understand the history by getting away from the Hookah bar and smoking as they did back in the day. Invite a few friends over, make your own Ed Hardy Hookah and enjoy sometime relaxing at home with your tobacco.   

 

All to often we smoke so much at the Hookah bars that the Hookah bars become taxing on our lives. Hookah smoking is supposed to be the relaxing part of the day, not the part of the day that taxes our day.
