LiveMusic Posted August 30, 2004 Share Posted August 30, 2004 It seems to me that smoking cigs would destroy your voice over time. Can anyone say it's so? Does anyone know artists who have seriously compromised their voice from long-term smoking? I have this new friend who is around age 40 I suppose and I dunno but she's probably smoked a very long time. She and her husband, hell, the whole damn family smokes. They are addicted. We have to take smoke breaks for their fix when practicing. But man, can she sing! She continues to be "baffled" by her troubles with her voice. Can't hit the high notes like she used to. She kind of cracks or gets phlegm in her throad. I do that too and I don't smoke but her situation is rather bad sometimes. It's kind of getting her down. So, last night, I told her husband "Hey, what about quitting smoking? Don't you think that could be it? Didn't Joni Mitchell or somebody have to lower the key to sing in?" He agreed that "She needs to try to quit again." I wish he would, too! Man, this is one smoking family. At least they do go outside. Except for the computer room. I post this because I would like to help her. This girl can really sing. Sounds like Grace Slick. Perfect pitch and deep (and a big range), STRONG voice. > > > [ Live! ] < < < Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
