I do not and have never seen a problem with people smoking hookah. If he does it every once in a while, what's there to not be casual about?

I'm a strict non-smoker. I hate smoking. Honestly.
But once in a while a Hookah is cool, at least for social purposes. Healthwise it's not great, of course, but you wouldn't be allowed to do many things, which are fun, if you only cared about health issues.
If he does it daily, be concerned. If he really only does it once in a while, why not let him? He already quit cigarettes for you! That's more than my boyfriend ever would.

Hookah... mmm I've tried it before...
I think the health ricks are about the same as smoking cigarettes...


Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

I thank you all for any responses.

To peace, you may have no personal issue with it, but the topic of the entry was my concern with it and also, because something is casual, does not make it healthy nor acceptable in all conditions. However I understand your point of view and appreciate your time.

To mexico, just to inform you for general knowledge, in doing a lot of research it's actually parallel to smoking cigarettes in terms of health damages. In fact, there are more reports saying the concentration of smoke inhaled actually makes it even more dangerous. I believe wikipedia has an updated record of the health consequences, if you're interested.

Yes, but casually smoking hookah from what i've seen and heard has never harmed anyone. It's come more from smoking cigarettes and doing it once in a blue moon doesn't seem to hurt people who do it which is why I believe if it's something casual, it's no wonder why your guy is casual about it. You wanted advice and I gave it. Sorry if you don't agree with me, but okay.. Just my two cents. For future reference, Wikipedia is not a very credible source.
