What You Know About Shisha And What You Don’t Know About Shisha. Waterpipe tobacco smoking, or Shisha (also spelt Sheesha) is a 600-year old practice, commonly known as hookah, nargile, and hubble-bubble. It is a way of smoking tobacco, sometimes mixed with fruit or molasses sugar, through a bowl and hose or tube

Although traditionally it has been used by people in the Middle East it is increasingly popular in the UK, particularly amongst young people who often access Shisha through ‘Shisha Bars’ in nearby towns and cities.

Shisha often contains tobacco. There are some products that do not contain tobacco these are known as ‘Herbal Shisha’ and are often promoted as a healthier alternative. However, research shows that this is not the case and despite a lower nicotine content, the smoke in Herbal Shisha appears to be similar to smoke in cigarettes.

Smoking Shisha is often not viewed in the same way as smoking other tobacco products and some Shisha users are even surprised to learn that most Shisha contains tobacco.

Most Shisha is also illicit (i.e. has not paid tax) so could be linked to serious organised crime if it has been smuggled into the country.

There are many myths around shisha. Here are the key facts you need to know:

The water does not filter out harmful chemicals.

Smoking Shisha can cause the same diseases as smoking cigarettes such as cancers, heart disease, stroke and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) as well as premature aging and tooth loss.

The water cools the smoke making it less irritating, but not less harmful

Because the smoke is cooler you may inhale it more deeply into your lungs, along with high levels of carbon monoxide (the stuff that comes out of car exhausts) and other harmful, cancer causing chemicals

In a Shisha session lasting 60 minutes, a smoker can inhale as much smoke as a cigarette smoker would inhale from 100-200 cigarettes

Sharing a Shisha pipe can cause the spread of infectious diseases such as TB, hepatitis and oral herpes

Shisha pipe smoking is covered by the smokefree law. If you smoke shisha in an enclosed public place you could be fined
