One comment read;
”No one is against you, and BTW your post is everywhere for the wrong reasons… A lot of negative talks about you training your innocent kids on how to take nicotine.
Even you smoking the shisha, you do not even know what its made of….Groom your kids in the way of GOD and make the world a better place.
If your parents taught you how to smoke shisha or cigarette @ the same age you are teaching your kids, am sure by now your story would have ended.
Take correction, train them well..make them grow up and be better than you…because at the end of the day if they become problem to the society (GODFORBID), they will also become a bigger problem to you as they will come after you for ruining their lives…peace be unto you.”
There are varying beliefs about whether or not shisha is harmful to one’s health.

Well, here is what British Heart Foundation has to say about shisha:
”Shisha pipes use tobacco sweetened with fruit or molasses sugar, which makes the smoke more aromatic than cigarette smoke.
Popular flavourings include apple, plum, coconut, mango, mint, strawberry and cola. Wood, coal, or charcoal is burned in the shisha pipe to heat the tobacco and create the smoke because the fruit syrup or sugar makes the tobacco damp.
When you smoke shisha, you and anyone sitting near you are breathing in smoke which releases toxins including carbon monoxide and heavy metals –reducing your body’s ability to carry oxygen around in your blood.
Traditionally shisha tobacco contains cigarette tobacco, so like cigarettes it contains nicotine, tar, carbon monoxide and heavy metals, such as arsenic and lead.
As a result, shisha smokers are at risk of the same kinds of diseases as cigarette smokers, such as heart disease, cancer, respiratory disease and problems during pregnancy.
The average shisha-smoking session lasts an hour and research has shown that in this time you can inhale the same amount of smoke as from more than 100 cigarettes.
Some people mistakenly think that shisha smoking is not addictive because the water used in the pipe can absorb nicotine. In reality, because only some of the nicotine is absorbed by the water, shisha smokers are still exposed to enough nicotine to cause an addiction.”
