Shisha smoking has become a widespread habit among various sections of Saudi society.
A large number of elders are now addicts of Shisha while young adults are very much fond of smoking it. Shisha is being served at most public places, including parks, gardens, and beach cabins, as well as at restaurants and coffee shops.
Even though smoking was banned in public places, shisha was available at some of these places.
There is a general tendency to earn profit by marketing most of goods at places where people gather in large numbers such as beaches and public parks.
Shisha is one among these goods that people want to have while they are out for leisure and relaxation. Even those who are keen to avoid smoking cigarettes as something injurious to health see no harm in having a few puffs of shisha.
They even allow their children to share shisha with them while they spend weekend holidays at public places. Even those who do not smoke shisha have become victims of its passive smoking while they are out for relaxation at public places.
