    Tried it once, I quite like it.

    Do you have a source for this 200 cigarettes claim?

    Realistically, nobody is going to be inhaling the smoke throughout the time the experiment took (lets say 80-90 minutes). One shisha pipe is generally shared among a group of 2-6 people, each taking around 3 pulls before passing it on. If anything, the coal used is probably the most harmful factor (charcoal is the best but the quick-lite coals tend to give off fumes which give me headaches). I'm not claiming to know all the facts but I own a shisha pipe and smoke it regularly.

    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
    It tastes really nice and it's really relaxing. However I don't think it's worth doing it because of the risks (I've onyly done it a couple of times lol) but of course it shouldn't be banned.

    Maybe then it should be banned for under 18's or 21, because all i hear is , lets go shisha later guys ¬¬, and i never go.

    If people know what the risks are, and are happy to take a chance- fair play to them. Shouldn't ban it. I've never tried it myself but I do want to, as some of my friends say it's good. That being said, I don't exactly want to go around smoking loads and loads because I know it's dangerous.

    Again I would say as long as people know the risks it's not really an issue.

    I didn't realise it was that harmful. I thought it was less harmful than a cigarette.

    It's awesome, but you've gotta make the effort to make friends. Fair amount of shisha about if that's your thing Haha. To be fair, it's 15 minutes away from central, and Mile End is really diverse too so it depends what sort of things you're into - but there's something for everyone there. PM me if you don't want your thread turning into a QM fest lol

    An hours worth of smoking shisha is the equivalent of 200 cigarretes

    Because its got like 400% tax on it as cigarretes really cost about a £1, but the government doesn't wanna lose that much revenue from tax :/

    Still think it should be banned for some people like children, because its legal for everyone
