Teenagers are increasingly smoking hookah and it is inevitable that it happens. Peer pressure. Fitting in. Hookah is more damaging than cigarettes yet many teenagers are okay with smoking hookah than cigarettes. Some parents would support their child’s habit of smoking hookah but have a problem with them smoking cigarettes even though hookah is more damaging. Maybe it’s the taste and smell of hookah compared to that of cigarettes. Maybe it’s the amount of smoke given off from one pull that makes it more enjoyable. Why is it that cigarettes are seen as more dangerous health wise compared to hookah?
