The base of the hookah is filled with about 3/4 with water and the top is screwed back onto it. Apple flavoured tobacco is placed inside a ceramic container and placed at the top of the hookah. The hose is placed on the hookah and a foil paper is placed over the top of ceramic container. Holes are pierced into the foil about six times. A piece of coal is taken and lit with a lighter and allowed to burn. The burning coal is then placed on the top of the foil paper. The pipe is place at the mouth and the tobacco is drawn in and released through the nostrils.
