  2. Throat Clearing & Harsh Coughing
    The safest and most efficient way to clear mucus is by using a gentle, breathy productive cough where there is high airflow with little sound: take a  deep  breath as possible, hold your breath, and produce a sharp, silent “H” sound while you expel the air.
  3. Self-Destructive Behaviours
    Avoid smoking cigarettes. Tobacco and marijuana are irritants to the vocal tract. Smoking is disastrous for the speaking and singing voice.
