hi dear,
to quit hookah addiction first of all your motivation is too built up.
once you are motivated well to quit we help you.
there are many ways like you can quit by out door patient or by indoor patient.
there are many medication for withdrawal features of hookah and also anti craving medication for it.
since when and how much you are taking hookah and what are symptoms you have when you tried to quit it?
so consult psychiatrist for detail history and mental status examination and treatment.
Thank you.
