Smoking a shishah
Hello Web Surfer,

On a recent trip to Turkey I was introduced to the wonders of many eastern delights but nothing caught my imagination as much as the Hookah-Shisha pipe. Having tried a pipe on a few occasions in cafe's and shisha lounges in Turkey I brought one back with me to England. Having researched the history and culture surrounding the pipe I've set out to create a guide to help those who wish to know more about shisha smoking. Being a healthier alternative to cigarette smoking due to most Shisha molasses containing unprocessed tobacco leaf I have successfully converted many friends to try the social phenomenon of shisha. The unprocessed used tobacco is washed several times to remove the harshness to make smoking more pleasant. The type of tobacco and the process used to make shisha helps make shisha smoking milder than cigarettes. Herbal and fruit molasses are available which are none tobacco based. After trying the shisha pipe some of my friends have described it as "more like dessert than smoking" "fruity steam which tastes like candyfloss".".
