Hi thanks for your question.
There is no difference between cigrette and hookah.
Smoking always produces irritation of the throat,which with superadded bacterail infection causes pharyngitis,which is giving you pain.
It would have better for you to quit smoking, or at least reduce it.
You can use antihistiminics and mouth gargles when ever you suspects that your going to have sore throat.
Hope this answers your question.

General & Family Physician Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta's  Response
It is quite strange that inspite of knowing th cause of your throat pain,you want to continue your smoking.
This is very hazardous o your health and this smoke contains more than 4000 types of chemicals with many of them having the tendency to result in cancer.
Do quit smoking otherwise you may land up with various complications.
There is no other way to help you except asking you to quit smoking as early as possible.
