What's Your Hookah Story?

Hookah lovers know that it's about more than just the buzz. We are collectors, flavor connoisseurs, and party hosts. Some travel the world collecting hookah experiences, while others prefer to have a small gathering in their own backyard. Regardless of how you do it, we want to know your hookah story. Include as many pictures as you'd like, or even make a video! Send your stories to hookahlove (@) hookah-shisha.com
We'd like to thank Kayvon for sharing his story with us. We all love hookah, but it's important to remember the rich history and heritage that it holds for many people. Smoking hookah is not just a vehicle for blowing awesome smoke rings - it is a part of a culture that deserves respect. Thanks for the reminder, Kayvon!

 I grew up with hookah in my Persian household as a kid. It has always been a part of my culture and a part of my life. When I got midway through high school, I started to notice that hookah was slowly trending. To be honest I have no idea why because hookah was nothing new, as it was common as cigarettes in my home and throughout the rest of the Middle East for hundreds of years. While I love sitting and sharing hookah with my friends on a weekend night playing table top games and socializing, a part of me is sour to the fact that something so unique to my culture has become a hip Western trend.

All these newer tobacco brands making up flavors with trendy names and non-traditional smoking materials (shisha steam stones) makes me feel like the simple tobacco and qalian [another term for water pipe] of my childhood is no longer a special part of me and my culture.
