French inhalation is a very colorful smoking trick that has its technique. If you want to learn to master it, we tell you step by step everything you have to do.
Steps to make French inhalation with cigarette smoke
Follow the steps below to learn how to do French inhalation with cigarette smoke. Practice makes perfect! Do not be in a hurry and learn the technique little by little. Before you know it, you’ll master it perfectly.
Trap the smoke
The first step to French inhalation is to trap the smoke with your mouth, without inhaling it! Keep it inside the mouth without reaching the lungs. To achieve this, you can move your tongue to the back of your mouth, so that the smoke cannot pass inside.
Let the smoke out
This step is very important and, in theory, very easy to do. However, many beginners in French inhalation do not get it right the first time.
It consists of simply slowly opening the mouth. The challenge is that you should not exhale or blow out. It seems simple, but smoker habits can betray you and make it more difficult.
You let the smoke come out little by little. If you keep your tongue in the back of your mouth it will be easier for you to achieve it.
Push the smoke up
Let’s start with the technical part! In this step you should push the smoke into the nose, that is, upwards.
Still do not exhale, stick your lip and jaw forward and notice how the smoke is acquiring an upward direction.
The tongue continues with its role of “plug” in the back of the mouth and so it must still be maintained.
Remove the remaining smoke
Now, it moves its tongue forward very slowly, pushing with it the rest of the smoke that is inside outwards.
Here the complicated thing is to do it at the right speed. You probably do it too quickly at first, so try to make it as slow a process as possible. If not, the smoke will dissipate prematurely and you will not be able to finish the French inhalation correctly.
Inhale through the nose
While you’re doing the above step, start inhaling through your nose, also slowly. It’s difficult at first, but ideally you get the perfect balance temporarily between the smoke you throw out of your mouth and the smoke you inhale through your nose.
One way to achieve this is to act as if you are filling your lungs with air with your nose. Slowly, without being in any hurry. The smoke will gradually come in.
Make the smoke disappear
The process of inhaling through the nose should be maintained until there is no more smoke. If you notice that you have too much in your mouth or that you can not inhale all that remains, exhale the rest and blow, so that it goes far away or dissipates completely.
Tips to Make the Perfect French Inhalation
