Shisha – also called hookah, narghile, waterpipe, or hubble bubble smoking – is a way of smoking tobacco, sometimes mixed with fruit or molasses sugar, through a bowl and hose or tube.
The tube ends in a mouthpiece from which the smoker inhales the smoke from the substances being burnt into their lungs.
encomium.ng spoke with Nigerians on whether smoking shisha is beneficial or not.
Below are their comments
No, smoking shisha is not beneficial because it is made of tobacco and causes lots of damage to the body.
Yes, it is beneficial. It helps the body system, it only affects the body when you take too much of it.
Yes, smoking shisha is beneficial. Are you surprised? This is because the content which is inside it is made up of herbs and which is good for the body.
No, it is of no benefit. Just for fun, just to get high and sometimes for show off.
No, smoking shisha is harmful. It is dangerous to the body. It only gives us diseases which may lead to death, so it is not beneficial. Instead, it’s harmful.
Yes, it is for those who know how to smoke it. It contents are good for the body, it only affects negatively when you smoke without eating.
No, it is bad. It kills fast, especially for young adults. It will only damage your heart and lung and lead to untimely dealth.
I think shisha is harmful only if you don’t know your limit. It’s okay. After all, it’s herbs that’s inside. It’s only that people abuse it.
No, it5s not beneficial. It’s instead crazy. Why would anyone smoke shisha? Even if it’s for show off, it is not right. And even the bible is against it.
Maybe it’s not beneficial but I don’t think it affects negatively either. It’s only for fun and not to kill. Everyone wants to live so it’s just people that abuse it.
