Hi, not sure if I'm posting this in the right section, (my first post) but here it goes: From time to time, could be about once or twice a month I smoke Shisha(waterpipe) with my friends. This is often quite long session and could be a lot of Nicotine. I haven't experienced a noticeable increase in my tinnitus after smoking before, but this night I woke up and it was louder than it had been in a long time. I read that Nicotine was a stimulant for tinnitus. My question is: Do you think, that since it is a stimulant the loudness of my tinnitus will go down to it's normal state when the nicotine has worn out and that I should expect this same temporary increase the next time I smoke as well? If you have any experience or opinions feel free to reply. Btw, I know smoking is bad for me, but seeing I do it so rarely I'm not stopping unless I know it's gonna worsen my tinnitus temporarily.
