My daughter of 15 would like to know if the thing called a "hubbly-bubbly" is good for you. It is that pipe that a person smokes with water in the bottom and the stuff you smoke in the top. When the water boils, the steam goes through the pipe and you smoke it. Please advise, thank you

Hi Sandy

Hi Writers, sorry that I am replying now but I have been away for a while but now I am up and going again and ready to give you good advice!

Hope everyone is doing well!!

That is right, I won't say it is totally healthy but there is not necotine that you inhale so it is much better than smoking cigaretts. There is however tar because of the "thingie" that you light - so you inhale that.

But it is quite a fun activity under young people these days and quite harmless.
