Nigerian singer and mother of one, Tiwa Savage, on social media, has shared photos of herself engaged in shisha smoking (Water pipe smoking) at a night club.
Tiwa Savage uploaded the photos on Instagram:
Research evidence has shown that Shisha smoking may not be less harmful cigarette as people think. In fact, the British Health foundation says Shisha is as bad as a cigarette
The average shisha-smoking session lasts an hour and research has shown that in this time you can inhale the same amount of smoke as from more than 100 cigarettes. Some people mistakenly think that shisha smoking is not addictive because the water used in the pipe can absorb nicotine.
Shisha smoking is also considered to be dangerous like cigarette. It has many of the same health risks as cigarette smoking. Water pipe smoking delivers nicotine—the same highly addictive drug found in other tobacco products.
