 College Women Hooked to the Hookah in The United States
A recent study conducted in The US has outlined that one out of four college women in the US are loving the hookah and also believe that they are much safe than cigarettes.

The study also found that the more alcohol women consumed, greater are the chances of trying the hookah.

"The popularity and social nature of hookah smoking, combined with the fact that college freshmen are more likely to experiment with risky behavior, could set the stage for a potential public health issue, given what we know about the health risks of hookah smoking," said Robyn L. Fielder, team leader of the research group.

A further analysis also revealed that hookah use was dependant on alcohol consumption, and personality styles. Infact, the latter deeply influenced frequency of hookah use.
