Interviewer: Why would someone like you choose to use Hookah?
Interviewee: I was trying to get away from cigarettes, but I found that Hookah basically is killing faster than what a cigarette can.
Interviewer: Why do you think that? [Timestamp][00:13:00].
Interviewee: Because um, I’ve heard a lot of things and people kept telling me to stop smoking and it kills you as much faster as Hookah. All Hookah is going to do is make your lungs die out. It felt like it was dying out slower, but it’s not, it’s actually doing it quicker. …show more content…
Interviewer: Or were people telling you that?
Interviewee: I felt that way and some people were telling me that, both actually.
Interviewer: And who are the people that are telling you that?
Interviewee: Friends, family.
Interviewer: Why do you think they, how do they get that idea.
Interviewee: Probably because somebody told them too or probably experience, I don’t really know.
Interviewer: Um, but you don’t consider it safe or safer than cigarettes?
Interviewee: Yeah, I do.
Interviewer: How did you first learn about using it, how to use it?
Interviewee: Like, people on television, seen the commercial and I just get one and Facebook too. [Timestamp][00:14:00].
Interviewer: But, it a pretty complicated process right? Like there is stuff you have to do, you don’t just light it, so how did you learn how to use it?

Its addicting just like cigarettes and marijuana is.
Interviewer: Okay, last thing we are going to talk about is, um, vaping. [Timestamp][00:15:00]
Interviewee: That used to be my favorite.
Interviewer: That’s what everybody says. So, what is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about e-cigarettes, vapes, and mods?
Interviewee: The flavor, I want to taste the flavor in the stuff. Like, that was my favorite, the first one that’s on there, I used to have the same exact one and that used to be my favorite thing. I still have it in my room; I just don’t use it anymore.
Interviewer: Why don’t you use it anymore?
Interviewee: It just died out for me. That wasn’t really addictive but, it dies off. Actually, it was kind of addicting, like I will be here, I’ll be outside puffing on it and you’re not supposed to. So, I felt like yeah, it was addicting, but it just died off of me and I don’t need it anymore. Now, the new thing that you hear is wax pens, the new hookah, you hear that style. I don’t have that anymore, I broke it, but I think that was the main thing I use.
Interviewer: But, that one, [timestamp][00:16:00] it’s use, it’s with marijuana wax right?
