stopped smoking and now I cant sing

Ktva for a year and was enjoying better singing then I have ever managed however recently stopped smoking. This has left me with a thin voice with many breaks across range where I had no problems before. Vocal folds feel tight and distortion has all but gone. Is this something others have experienced?
You probably need to revisit your whole support mechanism. Perhaps if you were shorter of breath before, now you are a little bit out of balance from the support you had when you smoked.
It's only been a week. I am thinking that perhaps the chords have less gunk on them and I am finding that less air is helping at the moment but notes seemed to have moved position and tone. I will persevere to try and re establish where they sit and revisit support. Perhaps it is that I have to much air available compared with before. I played sat and found that once warmed up I had good range but it was very clear sounding
It might simply be a change you are going through, i would try to simply get back on track with all Ken's advice. Maybe even go from the beginning again?
