I can make smoke rings. Cup your mouth and stick your tongue out a bit so it sits at the entrance (in the center) then contract your cheeks a bit. Don't breathe out or you'll blow too much smoke.

Take a open tin can and make a hole in the bottom end about an inch in diameter. Over the open end fit a flexible membrane. Fill the can with smoke.
Tapping the flixible membrane causes smoke rings to come out of the hole.

I've seen a much bigger version create large smoke rings and on it's own (no smoke) blow out a candle several feet away.

p.s. don't forget smoking can seriously damage your health

Exactly so, and it helps if you don't inhale the smoke in the first place. If you just draw it into your mouth, there's a lot more available to make the ring.

True, its easiest with cigarettes, but I've seen it done with hookah (sheesha) or marijuana. I can only do cigarettes.

Cigarettes, cigars, and pipes are the easiest because the smoke density is a lot higher. The whole point of a hookah is that it filters the smoke, which really takes most of the particulate matter out. And I can't personally think of anyone who would waste a significant portion of a spliff by not inhaling it.

Hookah goes straight into the lungs so its diluted alot by the time its coming back out.
I've seen a really cool trick in a room with not much airflow, blowing out cigarette smoke onto a flat surface, it just kinda sits there for a while in its own little cloud. Really neat looking.
