Hookah smokers?

I recently fell into the trend of smoking hookah. Today I googled it and I read that it's just as bad as smoking regular ciggarettes. I also read that you can smoke herbal fruit instead of tobacco. Is smoking herbs better? Does it taste differently?

  • My understanding of it is smoking flavored tobacco (although other things can be smoked) If you're not using a natural tobacco, then of course it's as bad as smoking (not that I think smoking anything is good) because you're getting all the additives and chemicals. My husband saw a lot of them in Iraq, never heard him mention fruit. What is the point of smoking herbs? Is it medical or to reach a certain high?
