Will 1 pack of cigarettes ruin my voice?

Unfortunately, yes, a pack of cigarettes can ruin your voice. As a matter of fact, a pack of cigarettes is considered too much for doctors. Smoking even as little as 1 to 5 cigarettes can greatly change your health. You will experience frequent coughing, shortness of breath, and some changes in your overall well-being, including your voice. The smoke could build up mucus in the throat. It might irritate it and affects your voice negatively. Even if you see yourself as a light smoker, you could also be prone to any health problems.

How do I connect to the music fans I want effectively?

Hello, I have written 600 original songs and I'm having a hard time properly getting myself the type of exposure I want and not just young people trying to copy me (I'm 27.) What can you see as a possible effective solution to this problem so that I can complete my path as an independent artist?

This is cool. Are you really going to answer my question personally?

? That would be great! My question is, I work at a logistics company and often I have to work with material and boxes that are extremely dusty, and honestly, I love blowing the dust off of the boxes and when I do that I inhale the dust, I can't help not doing that. I just really like it . But I'm afraid it has came back to haunt me because I also love to sing and I am actually pretty good but now I can't seem to hit any high or less notes without my voice sounding horrible and hoarse. What can I do to fix that and is blowing the dust really that bad?

Car air-conditioning & inertness?

Hello, I was wondering how the car air-conditioning affects the vocal chords. I spend a lot of time in the car due to the nature of my job, so in a hot day it can be on non-stop for more than 8 hrs. Also, during the last 3 years I haven't really used my voice (for the right reasons, and the sense I've got of my throat is dryness. Do you have any tips for me on this lifestyle to avoid damaging my voice any further and even try to get my full potential back?. I have tried: I've gradually but steadily changed my diet, moved towards a vegan approach of nutrition.. I think it was caused by: The fact that I haven't used it for a long time.
