What

is Shisha?

slide3

Shisha is known by many names. Shisha is commonly referred to as goza and narghile, although most people know it as hookah. Shisha is refers to the flavoured tobacco water pipe that was first used in Asia and the Middle East but has gained popularity in many countries especially in public places such as restaurants and cafes.

slide4

Ashisha consists of four parts. There is a base that is partially filled with water, a bowl that contains the tobacco, and a pipe and hose used for inhaling the smoke.

slide6

The tobacco is soaked in fruits shavings such as apples, grapes and strawberries to make it a fruity taste & aromatic when smoke. 

It also comes in floral flavours such as coconut, vanilla and rose.

slide8

"Everyone knows that cigarettes can kill, but not everyone knows shisha as deadly as cigarettes,"

slide11

Yes. Shisha smoking is actually as harmful and addictive as cigarette smoking. Shisha contains tobacco and the same chemicals found in cigarettes, such as nicotine, carbon monoxide and tar. Evidence also suggests that exposure to environmental and second hand tobacco smoke from the shisha pipe is associated with significant lung and other diseases.

slide12

A cigarette may last for about

5 minutes, but a normal shisha

session would last for 30 minutes.

According to a study, a single shisha

Session may deliver the following:

  • 36 times the tar produced by cigarette
  • 1.7 times the nicotine produced by cigarette
  • 8.3 times the carbon monoxide produced by cigarette
  • 1 hour of shisah session can deliver 50 liters of smoke whereas a single cigarette delivers only 0.5 liters of smoke
