Unless you want premature wrinkles! Yes, that is right! I never in a million years had I thought of this concept while I drink my delicious extra cold drinks with extra ice. From margarita’s to ice cream shakes and my favorite; A Coke with extra, extra ice and a straw. I don’t know why, but for me my drinks just tastes better with a straw. I read recently that this is bad for mouth and lip wrinkles. When drinking from a straw you have to purse your lips which can unnecessarily form fine lines around the mouth over time.
Sadly, I must give up my love of the straw and freeze my poor teeth with drinking directly out of a glass. I guess beauty has its sacrifices.

No way! I’m not giving up my straws. That would require me to give up chocolate milkshakes, and THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!! Should we stop puckering up for kisses, too?! Yikes. I’ll take the lip wrinkles and just look like a corpse in my 50s.
There is one benefit of drinking from a straw. This comes from my dentist. He says that drinking dark beverages (like cola or tea) with a straw it bypasses your teeth and keeps them whiter.

That is so true, and good for when you have acidic drinks like lemon, but I guess I have to pick my poison. Not sure which yet.

Why should we stop living?! =) I say, still drink out of a straw forever no matter what! Everyone is going to get wrinkles anyways & there is nothing wrong with that! I’m not gonna stop living or stop having fun!! =)
