Default how much do i tighten up my spark plugs?

i know that your not supposed to tighten up the spark plugs alot when installing them. i dont have a torque wrench just a damn socket wrench. how tight does it have to be when installing them. do i just tighten them enough to where i can kind of feel the tightness then i stop?
