I have a very serious question. I am a singer and I don’t smoke nor am I a smoker, but it is difficult for me to stand secondhand smoke. I have found myself in various situations where I have been around marijuana or cigarette smokers and if breathing that air wasn’t bad enough, the next day my voice was COMPLETELY SHOT and hoarse. What are your thoughts? Is second hand smoke really bad for your vocal cords? Does it affect the voice the same as if I smoked? How do I get my voice back to its prime? How do I prevent this from happening again?
