Introduction: How to Make Smoke Come From Your Mouth Without Smoking!

Picture of How to Make Smoke Come From Your Mouth Without Smoking!

This is an AWESOME instructable. The effect is you put your fist to your mouth and puff out your cheeks. You take your fist away and smoke comes out of your mouth. Please excuse the photos. They aren't mine. I don't know how to put photos on here.

Step 1: Preparation

NONE! Unless you count making your hand into a fist. So then, the preparation is to make your hand into a fist. Be ready to put your fist where your mouth is.

Step 2: Put Your Fist Where Your Mouth Is

Now, after you have made a fist with your hand, put your fist where your mouth is: the side of it, where your thumb is. Do it just like in the picture. It's so easy, a baby can do it!

Step 3: Blow

Picture of Blow

Puff your cheeks out REALLY hard like the kid in this picture, but don't make it hurt too much, I don't want any exploding cheeks. This part is the hard part. Inside your mouth, you are actually squeezing the air into what is called fog. As you should know, fog is just water, or in this case, spit (I think).

Step 4: Open Your Mouth

After you have finished the other steps, take your fist away and open your mouth. Don't breathe out. The fog should come out of your mouth naturally. One last tip while you are blowing against your fist: Don't breathe. I know you think you'll look like this fish holding it's breath but if you breathe, you'll mess the whole thing up because the fog will just travel down your lungs. It doesn't matter if you breathe through your nose or not, your nose is connected to your mouth so it would still mess it up.

Step 5: Other Methods

Another method is to fill your cheeks halfway with air. Then you cluck your tongue really hard (but be careful not to let any air escape). After about five clucks, put your fist to your mouth and blow just like in step three. Remember, you still can not breathe. I prefer the first method but for those of you who can't do it, try this method. Also, if you have a new method, please post it so I can include it in this instructable. And if you have seen this before, don't say stuff like, "Everyone knows this trick, it's so old". Please comment and rate this instructable.

Step 6: Smoke From Bottle

Okay people, here is a variation with a bottle. This will only work with bottles that have condensation on the inside top of the bottle; the little water droplets. So, the first step is to put a spoon full of water into a plastic bottle. Put the cap on and let it sit on the counter overnight. So, take the cap off and put your lips to the bottle. Blow as hard as you can. You might want to squeeze the bottle a little. Take your mouth away and squeeze the bottle. You should see water vapors that look like smoke come out of the bottle.

Step 7: Tips

A tip is to have a LITTLE bit of water in y our mouth when you try this. Also, I have found out that the clucking of the tongue helps a lot. Please comment and add tips so that I can put them here if you have one.

This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image of the final project to the intro step. Please do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks!

Can you get cancer from this ?

KaleiB (author)Jojibaba2015-12-09

No, you can't get cancer randomly, it has to be in your genes or from radiation etc. Holding your breath will do nothing. Idk why people are saying you'll get cancer, but you won't. I did a study on cancer for 3 months, I know what I am talking about. :)

What does it mean by clicking your tongue

It means you put your tongue on the roof of your mouth and you have suction on the roof of your mouth and you pull it down

Jojibaba (author)2012-07-27

I discovered this years ago and attributed it to smoke being trapped in my alveoli from smoking earlier in the day.

Seriously? Ha ha. No offense but that is a new one for me. People are always wondering why it works and come up with crazy ideas. This is the funniest.

Well Said!

Holy crap, that's Awesome!

Shadow Dragon (author)2009-09-12

It also helps if you do it in a really dim room or with a flashlight held up to your mouth

instructors (author)2009-07-11

It's also possible to do this by just makeing pressure in your mouth, without the need of blowing up your cheeks. I found it works best in a dunkin donuts in the winter(seriuosly). Great instructable, but what's with the tiny pics from google images? The way you wrote your instructable is great, but original pics would make it even better.
