  • Shape your mouth into an “O” shape by sticking your lips out simultaneously. Don’t stress too much – leave room for movement. Shape your cheeks and lips as if you were sucking on a lollipop, and open your mouth to form an ‘O’ shape.
  • Try to push a slight amount of air out of your lower throat without pausing and without moving your lower jaw. click your lower jaw forward while maintaining the ‘O’ shape with your lips.

  • You might want to spice it up, by doing some backspins with your smoke rings. When the smoke is leaving your lips, push the tongue forward, while keeping it pointing down. Quit trying to bring the tip of your tongue above your teeth so it does not interfere with the smoke ring.
  • Then simultaneously, bring your lower jaw slightly but rapidly upward. This will put a “back-spin” on the smoke, and will make the ring stay in position, creating a very beautiful, thick ring of smoke.

Make your rings go quicker by speeding up your tongue pushed along with a rapid jut. These two motions should be the motions that push the O from your lips. The difference between this technique and backspin is that in the spin technique you push your jaw up while the other you push it forward.

  • You can practice in front of a mirror so you watch the smoke form and flows, and how the shape and movement of your mouth affects it.
