  • Rest your voice as much as possible.
  • Heat up some honey in the microwave and have that. It will help soothe your throat.
  • Drink a lot of water.

    Like the person before me said, rest your voice. Don't talk except when you absolutely have to, drink a lot of water, and eat really well for the rest of the week (and maybe take vitamins). I had to do that last week, and my voice was back pretty quickly.

    I'll third the "rest" suggestion. Stop talking immediately. Carry a portable white board or notepad with you to communicate with others. Other than that, stay hydrated and get good amounts of sleep.

    Thanks soooooo much. I have not spoken a word for two days so I'm on the right track. I will be sure to get my 8 glasses of water in. Maybe that is the problem I've only been getting 3-5 in the pass two weeks. I pray that I get my voice back by Friday. All who will say a little prayer for me.

    Agreed with the no talking bit, however...

    If you do talk, DO NOT WHISPER! Whispering is untuned air passing over your vocal folds, which will actually dry them out and make you hoarse longer. Speak softly, but don't whisper.

    Also, try lightly humming if you need to practice before Saturday.
