"When you’re having a good time and drinking away on a Friday night, you’re probably not thinking about your teeth. But we Brits, who already have a bad rep for our gnashers, might want to think twice about downing all those vodkas with lime and soda.
That’s because one dentist, Dr Lewis Ehrlich, has shown the effects of alcohol beverages on our teeth, and the results are a bit grim. Dr Ehrlich, who works at Sydney Holistic Dental Centre, showed the effect of water and alcohol on the teeth.
Uploading the picture of the outer surface of a tooth on his Facebook, Dr Ehrlich showed the stark difference between alcohol and water.
He shared magnified images of the enamel in a tooth after drinking water. ‘The pH is around 7. It is zoomed in 7000x. Note the smooth, intact surface. The way it should be,’ he said.
The next pictured showed the surface of the enamel after being exposed to a sugar-free vodka cruiser which has a pH of 3.2. It has more holes than Swiss cheese.
The final image showed the enamel after consuming a gin and tonic which has a PH of 2.2 which visibly had more holes.
'Take home message,’ the doctor wrote. ‘You only get one set of adult teeth. If these drinks can dissolve the hardest part of your body it’s scary to think what they would be doing elsewhere.’
The lower the pH of a drink, the more chance there is of your teeth eroding. To stop your teeth becoming susceptitble to teeth erosion, consume drinks with a higher PH like water which has a figure of 7.
The PH of our stomach acid is 2. Tooth enamel can start dissolving around a PH of 5.5 and most of the things we drink usually have a lower figure than that..."

Starting the week on Eusebius Mckaiser show - we talked about "almost alcoholics"and launched our Sober Spring Challenge!
I’m sorry; did you say there is a place with free coffee and donuts?
My little Jelly fish travel buddy dude in our own perfect underwater space. We Floated and danced in our own underwater stage of Perfect silence, freedom and joy.
It reminded of a quote by Kevyn Aucoin
“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain... To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices - today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.”
I have been a part of many debauches, i appreciated drinks everytime, i dreamed about kegs and looked at the beautiful bottles until they became my lullaby. I shivered at bars for about every night, glasses always loved me and i loved them back till the last drop. And; your brains need a fuckin good neurologist if you are thinking that there can be light where sun fades away with drinks, if you think this is the face of paradise to be lost in. It's not, this nicely decorated threat is just a rattrap, there comes a bait for you and you're trapped for lives in this life of few good moments. Now, when; i am living a sober life, i can say that i have done Justice to my alcoholism not because i was completely fallen for it but somewhere because i was never forced to drink or drinks never forced my nerves to have them. I started drinking with a crazy smile on my face and a will to discover every fuckin place of my body where whisky can rule, i did it beautifully and then; i quit drinking with a dramatic but real happiness because it told me whatever it wanted to and i have enough stories to tell my kids about my drunken nights. I faced a number of problems in recovering from alcoholism but i won by the grace of God and the strength my family gave me every time i thirsted for it. I wonder how the "medicine for my nostalgic part became the medicine for my present". Maybe this was possible only because of my "Godfidence" or my own summed up values i developed in the recent time. I meditated, gave myself time, made every day a shun day and slept almost for 12 hours a day. I am happy that i am back here, back here with all of me again and with a newer level of energy! :) love and power to you guys.
