Smoke rings are best learned using a hookah. So the first thing to do is set it up (How to Setup a Shisha Pipe) so that it is ready to be used. Then you can practice making rings with the smoke by following the following steps below.
The next step is dragging deep on the hookah in order to get thick smoke. There should be enough smoke in your lungs. This is essential in doing smoke tricks. You should be able to control the smoke so that it would not escape the lungs before you are ready to do the tricks.
You might know someone who can blow smoke rings and make it look easy. Perhaps you have tried doing it yourself but are not getting any impressive results? Learning how to blow smoke rings is a lot of fun and like most things, does take some practise. But once you have mastered it, you’ll get a sense of achievement of finally being able to do it.
The tongue has nothing to do with making smoke rings. The first step that you need to consider doing is to get the tongue out of the way, especially if you want to blow perfect circles. Place it flat at the bottom of your mouth and forget that it exists. Don’t move it at all when you are blowing circles. The tongue might break the smoke, and you will fail in creating rings out of the smoke.
The next step is to close the jaws halfway, this will allow you to better create the O shape of the lips that will cause the smoke to form a ring. Practice the jaw motion until you manage to form perfect circles.
The final step is to use your throat to push upwards to push through short bursts of smoke out of your mouth. Try to keep your lips steady as possible as this is the toughest part of blowing smoke rings and that you have enough smoke to form a ring, and enough breath to push the smoke out.
Now you know how to blow smoke rings. The good thing about hookahs is that you can get a lot of smoke in a single drag, which allows you to practice blowing rings until you finally get it right. You will be able to blow smoke circles before your hookah session ends.

When you have enough smoke in your lungs, the next step is to form an O shape with your lips, position your lips out as if you were making an “ooo” sound (like in the word ‘boo’). In some instances, it helps when you curl the lips back while they form the O shape. You can practice doing the O shape in front of the mirror.

The second thing you need is a nice, calm environment. Not for your nerves – for the smoke ring! Moving air will disrupt the fragile cohesion, while still air will allow a smoke ring to grow to its full glory and linger for a while afterwards.
Okay, you’ve got the right cigar and the right room. Now you need the right attitude: practice makes perfect. Let’s get ringing:
3. Open your mouth slowly (so you don’t create any unnecessary air flow that will disturb the smoke) and form it into the loose, rounded shape of the letter “O.”
4. Be sure to open your mouth and jaw, not just your lips. You can’t make a good smoke ring by puckering up and making a kiss-face or fish-face.
But wait. Let’s start with the basics and not get ahead of ourselves.
1. Draw a thick puff of smoke into your mouth and hold it there. (It’s not necessary to puff out your cheeks like a chipmunk)
The term “blowing a smoke ring” is something of a misnomer and probably the reason many cigar smokers fail when attempting their creation. Most people think they have to exhale to form a ring when, in fact, just the opposite is true.
2. Place your tongue on the bottom of your mouth and pull it back slightly to block your throat passage
5. Now, here’s the tricky part: Curl the tip of your tongue down, and pull your tongue all the way back and push the smoke out of your mouth with your tongue. Use your tongue in a gentle, piston type motion: short bursts, with a slight recoil (think of the way a car piston works).
