    Alcohol is an anesthetic. You are turning off the pain mechanism that is telling you that you are hurting yourself. By using alcohol in this way you are destroying your voice. I would highly suggest that you don't do this.

    Thank you I know it is not a good idea, but sometime short time temptation of more solid voice lead me to drink before I need to sing on stage .......I do exercises every day, hope I can grow my voice in more healthy way😄

    You can definitely grow your voice but if you give in to temptation and try to numb the pain of bad technique you will destroy what you are trying to build.
