Questions and Answers

Can i recover my singing voice after smoking continuously for 3 years?

Yes, but this will not bring back your singing voice to the point before you started smoking. By not smoking at all you are already aiding your lungs and throat. From here you will need to consume lemon water or juice to break down the mucus and other obstructions in the throat so that your throat will begin to repair itself.

Although recovery is possible if you will really adhere to a healthy diet and overall change in lifestyle, expect that it will take much longer as compared to when you don't actually smoke. Non-smokers in general are really healthier.

Also, even if you have stopped smoking but your lifestyle remains the same, it will still not create significant improvements in your singing voice. For example, you may have stopped smoking but you continue to deprive yourself from sleep or subject yourself to too much stress. In that case, your healthy and your voice condition will remain the same. Overall, lifestyle change is the most important thing to do here.

You also have to consider what kind of damage had been done to your singing voice. If the damage is structural in nature, you may want to consider surgery or other modifications that you doctor will advise. Simply stopping from smoking will not be able to address these structural defects.
