Hey Frank,

noticed you put up a picture of your festival haul and saw some smokes. I know loads of singers have had their own theories on this in the past, but do you find that smoking affects your voice?

It does and I really shouldn't. Have just resolved to quit properly actually.

If it's any help. The way I stopped was by smoking a ridiculous amount of cigarettes in a single evening. Really made me want to never touch one again.

That seems like a tactic that could backfire.

If you don't quit, I'm going to keep badgering you with emails. How's that for motivation?

Good deal Frank. Here's how I went from two packs a day to cold turkey: I got a job at the local hospital (in Brooklyn). Then I had lung cancer patients and assorted others call me an asshole every day when they smelled smoke on me. So I picked a day a couple of months in advance as my quit date, smoked my usual amount up until then, and stopped smoking on that day. Sucked it up for a few months and 15 years later it's still holding. Good luck man!!

Best wishes! In challenging situations, I find it best to turn to South Park:

Best of luck with this Frank. The cat is out of the bag since someone asked you about this, but I reckon it is much easier trying to give up something without others knowing that you are doing it...

When I quit I forced myself to smoke those little cafe creme cigars and where possible to inhale them.

It was so so vile that I stopped about 7 years ago and have (aside from on 3 occasions - 2 weddings, and one time where I got rat arsed whilst watching Flight 666) never ever looked back.

The night I stopped I chucked all the buts in a screw top jam jar and added a little water. For the next month or so I opened the jar and had a good sniff when I fancied a fag.

Hit of nicotine and vile smell, great combo.

Sooo, hows the quitting going? 12months for me today as I did the whole stoptober thing.
The only thing I noticed was I don't drink as much now, as beer and fags were a good match.

I'm practicing vocal for 14 years now, and smoking for 20 years, and I would say that smoking traditional cigarettes affects your voice tremendously, that's why I'm thinking to switch from cigarettes to those new things, you know, like vaping and etc. I read a lot about this topic though, and I'm convinced it will help my voice to sound more melodically.

Yeeey! I'm in! Actually I didn't know that quitting the cigarettes the world becomes happier than it was when I smoked. Actually, I smoked cigarettes since I thought that this process can erase the bad things that comes in my office work. However, when I visited my doctor, he said that I have a lot of problems with my lungs, so I decided not to quit my life but quit smoking cigarettes. However, I decided to quit the cigarettes with the help of liquid vape. My employee from the job has recommended me to buy vape liquid UK and because of him, I feel the positive results.
