    I'm pretty sure it's easy to socialise without the need of the shisha pipe. Please can you give me three reasons why it's so good then?

    Also what health benefits you get from it?

    Err, thats not the point, what the hell is wrong with it? There are no bad health benefits to it either.. You're just stupid if you think there are because you listen to the media or stereotypes. I'm not on about tobacco shisha, just flavoured water shisha. There is NOTHING wrong with that at all.. And dumb people who think its bad is because they're stupid and inhale and thats not how u do shisha anyways..

    Finally, i'm not here to debate about if its good or not, i just asked if its allowed to be taken to University. I don't give a **** about your opinion towards it LOL! If you're not here to answer the actual question asked, then don't reply?

    Why not? It's not illegal and people aren't barred from smoking cigarettes at university.

    Given that you don't actually appear to be a troll.


    Not smoking =/= social failure.

    Smking shisha is just as harmful, potentially more so, than cigarettes.

    And, most importantly, why the **** do you feel the need to ask if you can take it with you? Of course you can. Stupid question.

    No it's only harmful if you smoke tobacco from it, if its just normal flavouring and you don't inhale there's nothing harmful at all about it! And okay just thought maybe some unis may not allow it! But thanks, i'll take it with me lol

    Shisha isn't harmful if it doesn't contain tobacco, no tobacco = no chemicals, no nicotine no carbon monoxide. I'm not a smoker and brought up in an anti smoking family yet we all tried shisha on holiday after checking up on it, the cherry and apple ones are yummy.
    To the op, I can't see why not, in many cases it's a cultural thing, would maybe check with uni though.
    Let's face it, inhaling flavoured smoke with all natural ingredients is NEVER going to be as harmful as a night binge drinking (not that I don't love a drink!!)

    I'm sure you can take it but I'm 90% certain that you would not be allowed to use it in halls as they are a potential fire hazard.

    By all means take it with you. I used to do it myself, but please, don't spew the same bull**** that most of my asian crew come out with. It is much more harmful than cigarettes. There are reputable studies that show sheesha leads to massively increased amounts of noxious smoke being inhaled as water makes pretty crap filter.

    You're welcome to take it, I have no problem with that. The only problem you might face is whether or not your accommodation will allow a sheesha pipe.

    It's harmful but not as harmful as cigarettes (although anyone who could take in the equivalent volume of smoke in one hookah session in cigarettes, a day, needs a hobby).

    Just as a heads up for your university essays; everyone who agrees with you isn't right, while those who disagree are wrong. In this case for example the people who disagree are backed up by actual scientists, who probably own lab coats and everything.

    Lmao shisha is so ****, you might as well just smoke weed. It irritates me because you are literally just breathing flavoured steam, some of my friends claim it gives them a high but I really don't get that. I just hate when I'm at a shisha place with my friends and it is the central focus of the evening. It's one of those phases that everyone at my school went through and thought it made them really cool and hard.

    But yeah I'm sure you'd be fine bringing it to uni with you, just please don't be one of those ****ers that acts all stoned after one breath of it.

    White people smoking shisha is really cringeworthy. That said, if it's part of you cultural heritage, go for it.
