A Peek Into Shisha Smoking - Is It More Harmful Than Cigarette Addiction?


Visitors: 666

You have obviously heard about cigarette smoking and the other smoking procedures and some of you even might have a little knowledge on shisha (hookah) smoking but nevertheless I assume that there must be at least a few in your midst who are not aware of the terrific disasters that shisha smoking unleashes in the life of a smoker. Across the world, shisha smoking is not as prevalent as cigarette smoking, but the inevitable harm from shisha smoke is far greater in comparison to the hazardous effects of cigarette smoking!

Just at the mention of shisha, a large number of ladies and gentlemen are struck with utter perplexity for the reason that they are unable to decipher the meaning of this phenomenon and also the rationale that explains that quit smoking is an immediate necessity for a shisha smoker? If you are in the same predicament and the term “shisha smoking” appears utterly mysterious to you then let me inform that shisha is nothing but an oriental tobacco pipe. The shisha pipe is attached to a flexible tube which is considerably long and it is further connected to a container where the tobacco is kept and cooled by passing through water.

Coming back to the probable harm from shisha smoking, I would like to make it clear that in a single session, the smokers inhale a considerable range of tobacco smoke which is 200 times more in comparison to the smoke that a smoker consumes by lighting up a cigarette. Now just imagine the inevitable destruction from shisha smoking! Studies have made it clear that a large amount of disastrous chemical is present in shisha smoke which is capable of inducing cancer and heart diseases in people. Taking stock of the disastrous consequences of shisha smoking, around the world the health enthusiasts are increasingly demanding an immediate ban on shisha smoking.

But whether you smoke shisha or cigarettes, quit smoking is a necessity and for that matter you have to pull up your socks and carve out an effective smoking cessation regimen in accordance with the advices of the physician!
