plastic bongs often seem to have negative connotations, but they are rapidly becoming a popular smoking method. You can also call them plastic water pipes, if you wish. The word bong seems to more suit the hippy from the 70s, but this word use may also be regional.
Anyway, I received a cheap plastic bong and a vaporizer for my birthday earlier this year. I’d been wanting to give them both a try. I must say that I love my new plastic bong. I found the vaporizer really fiddly to use, though I suppose it might be preferable when out in public, due to its small discreet size.
As bongs catch on, I can also agree that they have many positive attributes. Overall I was pleased with how easy they were to clean, and how they seemed to moderate my smoking. I also loved the cobalt blue color of mine. After each usage, I washed it out with soap and water, dried, and placed it on my shelf. I had my parents come over one night, and they didn’t even know what it was for. My mother commented on what a lovely vase it was.
I never really liked that cigarette habit, or holding it between your fingers. Somehow I’d manage to singe my fingertips, and they’d have a yucky smell for a day, even after several vigorous washings. I feel that a bong is more hygienic. There’s no need for my fingers to touch it.
The water pipe also has a filtering effect that seems to make smoking easier. This is beneficial to me, as I’m not a cigarette smoker at all. I’m not used to inhaling into my lungs. Sometimes it can make me choke. Yet, I don’t want to feel left out at friend’s parties. So, now I can bring my own bong, and smoke hygienically. I don’t let anyone else use it either.
A bong makes smoking easier because it has a filtering effect on the smoke. During inhalation bubbles are produced in the water. This makes the smoke smoother on the throat, particularly for people like me who aren’t used to regular smoking. It also helps with taking shallower breaths, to ease into smoking.
A water bong prevents harmful bacteria from growing. It’s quite simple to clean afterwards, and cleaning will ensure that your plastic bong is kept hygienic and ready to use again. There’s no more worries that you may catch bronchitis while smoking. Keeping your bong clean will also maximize its filtering effects the next time round. You don’t want to have any built-up residue to hamper your smoking experience.
Overall, I loved my new bong gift, and am pleased that I have something to bring to parties with me. Since I don’t like sharing I am now assured that I’m not going to be exposed to someone’s nasty flu bug. My throat also won’t be irritated like it can be through smoking a joint. I can simply wash the bong out, and put it back on the shelf after its use.
