How To Setup Your Hookah
Before you call ANYONE over to enjoy a hookah session you have to make that you can setup a hookah for yourself first. If you're taking the hookah out for the first time you'll want to get out your Hookah Cleaning Brushes to give the pipe a deep clean. When you get in to the habit of cleaning it often you won't have to go as deep as you would on the initial clean.
Check Your Surroundings
The difference between smoking at a hookah lounge versus smoking at home is the fact that lounges are designed to have hookahs on the floor/tables and your home is laid out for you to live within. This hasn't stop the millions of us that enjoy a hookah at home it just requires a little bit of preperation.
If you have animals it's best to setup your hookah in space that they can't access easily or create a small wall around the base to prevent any accidental knocks. If you plan on using your hookah on a table to prevent this from happening you may want to choose a smaller hookah so you can still reach the top of your bowl for heat managment.
A messy room isn't a clean room. I'm not gonna tell you to clean your room but you'll want to make some space for this hookah to rest evenly on a flat surface.
