How a bong works for beginners 

A bong is a smoking device, generally used to smoke tobacco, but also other substances. It is sometimes confused with a hookah, the difference being that a bong is hit from the body rather than through a hose. Bongs are good in the fact that the water will filter out most of the carcinogens while leaving the Nicotine, which is not soluble in water.

Bongs can vary greatly in their shape, materials, styles, colors, and sizes. Many bongs are regarded for their style, distinct vivid colors, or customisations such as stickers, and become a personalised signature of that particular bong owner.

Using a Bong
Smoking using a bong contrasts with smoking using a pipe or cigarette in two major ways. Bongs cool the smoke before it enters the user’s lungs and a large amount of smoke is inhaled quickly as opposed to the smaller, more frequent, inhalations of pipe and cigarette smoking.

The base is filled with water to the depth dictated by the bong. This water is typically tap water. Sometimes other liquids are used, although alcohol and oils filter out a certain percentage of the THC. More rarely, liquids like Coca-Cola and herbal teas are used. However, such liquids can make cleaning difficult and time-consuming.
The substance to be smoked is packed into the bowl and ignited. Cigarette lighters are usually used for ignition. However, matches can be used as well.
The user places his/her lips on the mouth piece, forming a seal, and inhales. An inhalation is known as a "hit" or "rip." If the smoker is using a larger bong, the first hit contains no smoke; this type of hit is known as a "dry hit." Its purpose is to draw the clean air out of the chamber and to start drawing in smoke from the bowl. If a smaller bong is being used, the first hit should consume all the potential smoke. If two inhalations are made, this is known as a "double hit" and is considered poor bong etiquette.
When the user feels that they have inhaled a satisfactory amount of smoke, he/she can pull the bowl out of the bong to introduce "clean" air. This is known as "clearing" or "pulling the slide." Other bongs have a small hole, known as a "carb", "power hit" or "choke", above the water level, to be blocked with the user's thumb until he/she draws enough smoke to "carb" or "shotgun" the hit.
Once the slide bowl has been removed (or carb unblocked), the smoker inhales sharply, drawing the smoke into their lungs.
And that is pretty much it. Enjoy everyone!
