It's hard to fully understand your risk from your post buddy, if you believe you have had a risk yourself, test at 28 days or more with a 4th generation Duo test for a conclusive result.

If what you are taking about does not include the transfer of blood, it is not a risk.

sharing a pipe is not an hiv risk. risks are:  sharing a needle, vaginal, anal, oral sex. mother to child, feeding newborn with a breast milk.

This doesnt even qualify in the category of risks for HIV. Absolutely not. You are safe even if the pipe or hukkah blown by your friend had saliva or his blood on it.

hiv doesn't spread that way. saliva completely kills hiv host cells and also hiv in blood. you have no risk even blood was presented on pipe.
