Abstract: 

Dear Editor: Hookah or waterpipe smoking is a traditional method of tobacco use, especially in the Eastern Mediterranean region. Using hookah is spreading worldwide, particularly among students and youths. Hookah smoking is often considered a fun, harmless, and lighter version of smoking without its risks. There is an idea that hookah is safer than cigarette smoking and consequently, the hookah smoking has been steadily spreading among the youth and college students. On the other hand, the attraction of this tobacco use method for the youth is due to its pleasant smooth smoke, social acceptance, appealing flavors, its relatively low cost, and the perception of reduced harm.
