Default Monthy Hookah Expenses?

I was wondering how much most of you spend per month on hookah. I'm mainly curious about how much on shisha but if you wanna include new hookahs, hoses, bowls etc. that's cool too.

I currently am doing about $115 a month on tangiers and smoke 1500g about per month.

Ignoring purchases like new pipes bowls and new hoses


price per box of coals ÷ number of coals in box = price of single coal
# of colas used in a single session x price per single coal = coal cost per bowl
coal cost per bowl x bowls smoked per day = coal cost per day = C


price of shisha box ÷ grams in box = price per gram of shisha
grams used in a single bowl x price per gram of shisha = shisha cost per bowl
shisha cost per bowl x bowls smoked per day = shisha cost per day = S

C+S= hookah cost per day
hookah cost per day x 30 = average hookah cost per month

Dang I guess I'm doing pretty good then. It definitely helps that I've been able to start getting 108 coconaras for $3 due to us having a deal with the smokeshop next to my work.

pizza in exchange for discounted coals is awesome in my books.
I just wish the stores here carried more than AF and SB. Only one store I've found in state that carries tangiers and only a couple that carry nak.

How do you spend 60$ only smoking 2x a week? I used Gnome's formula and came up with 67$ and I smoke e'ryday. Weird...

I aspire to that much disposable income to put towards my hookah passion!

Aside from pipes/hoses/bowls, which I'm pretty much covered for with for the foreseeable future, I would say I'm settling into the $60 a month range. Been spending too much the last year trying out and experimenting with brands of shisha, but now I think I have it down to Nak and Tang with a few AF flavors I really dig as well. It got SO much cheaper once I realized that better tobacco is actually cheaper in the long run! Adios SB and Fantasia and good riddance! The only brands I still want to try are Othmani, Hookahfina and Haze, but I feel that the last two may just be SB style wastes. Oh, can't forget Social Smoke, they have a few really good flavors too for once in awhile grabs.

When i was still in Brazil Tangiers would cost. 30-35 bucks, plus coals and mazaya for 5 dolars a box, and the fact that in each ocasion I do 4-5 bowls, but here in US the costs are dropping.

I used to spend anywhere from $150 to $350 a week. Hosting weekly get togethers and being really stressed out all the time made me go through a lot of tobacco.

As of late I spend about $150 a month. Life is a lot more chill, lol.

Haze is pretty mediocre. I've had quite a few flavors and all of the flavor dies out by mid-late session.

Social Smoke and Fumari are the best really juicy modern-y brands. Everything else is sort of meh. JMs can be pretty good too if you can find it and find tins that aren't old.

Hookahfina I have no opinion on. I would put it on the backburner after Othmani though.

Seriously, Othmani is of very good quality. I have had almost the entire line save for their DA and one other flavor and I only disliked the mixed berries.
