Hookah, in many cultures goes hand in hands with meditation which is very good for the soul. Although, you are still inhaling into your lungs a foreign substance, and that can be unhealthy. There are different types of sheesha that are all natural and made from different fruits and herbs that would be healthier than smoking tobacco. There are also different kinds of wet sheesha that you can use that let out of vapor instead of smoke. I would recommend this over anything. It is my personal favourite and is much healthier opposed to smoke. Note: marijuana is very bad to smoke out of a hookah, it will ruin the hookah. So, if you are planning to you should also plan on buying a new hookah.
