    Personally from what i have understood is that when having shisha in the longterm its going to kill you far quicker then normal cigarretes.
    Plus apart from the different flavour of taste you get, its really not worth it.
    But then again i've never tried it and i'm glad
    I'd rather be around people smoking sheesha (where they aren't harming anyone around them as it's normally indoors), compared to walking down the street behind somone smoking a cigarette and blowing out toxic fumes which I breathe in as I walk.

    They're damaging themselves (which they have a right to), and not others around them compared to tobacco cigarettes.

    There's no point in just posting a news link as a reply, an opinion or dicussion from yourself would be nice.

    You find it perfectly okay to walk down a street inhaling exhaust fumes though.

    If you are standing in a room where people are smoking shisha indoors you are still inhaling secondary smoke, you are passive smoking.

    If you've never tried it then in my opinion making a thread about banning something you have never tried just makes you lose all credibility. Don't try and bring up a thread that you know very little to nothing about.
    there is a flaw in your argument. I'd rather not point it out.

    You better not ban shisha, otherwise I won't get my five a day

    Also, if an hour of shisha is equivalent to 200 cigarettes, then I smoke about 1000 cigarettes a week. I think I'd probably be dead by now.

    Exactly, I really hate this retarded statistic. I know people who've been smoking cigarettes for 10 years and their voice has completely changed. It's become raspy and coarse and they tend to spit out a lot of flem. I haven't seen the same thing with people who've been smoking shisha for 30+ years.

    Why do you care what other people do when it doesn't affect anyone else?

    It's only the quick-light charcoals that are bad for you, and it's the stuff that makes 'em light quick that makes them bad! If you use natural charcoals (like most shisha pro's do) then the effect is very little.

    EDIT: Obviously the smoking of tobacco is also bad, but is comparatively nothing next to cigarettes.

    Obviously it's healthier not to smoke, I'm not denying that by any means. But claiming it is more harmful than cigarettes is ridiculous.

    I never claimed that. But have you got statistics to back that up?
