    Usually, I feel like my tongue is a little dry and I have trouble saying some words and when saying some sentences, I feel like I'm doing a little tongue twister . It's minor but I can notice it nevertheless. But after drinking coke or pepsi, I feel like my tongue can say stuff much more fluidly and I can speak so clearly! :tong:

    Water doesn't have the same effect. It's only pepsi or coke.

    Does anyone else experience this? I wanna know the science behind it

    Is it something about the aciditiy cutting any coating of mucus on your tongue and tonsils affecting your diction?

    Hmm. I literally just went and scraped my tongue no difference. But I have a theory: it maybe because I speak louder when I drink coke or pepsi due to the caffeine. When I speak louder, I speak more clearly (even without pepsi). But when I'm not on caffeine, I don't speak as loud. So I tend to mumble, possibly.

    It has nothing to do with the acidity of the pepsi/cola but rather the presence of Caffeine, a stimulant.

    Hmm. I will definitely observe the effects of coffee and compare them to the effects of Pepsi/cola to test whether it is indeed caffeine.

    It's definitely the caffeine lol.

    If I drink just sparkling water or lemonade I can speak clearer, because I have very narrow airways (my mother needed surgery to open her palate and sinuses up, that's how bad) and my tonsils and throat often stick together when i talk or sing and can make me choke for like half a second >_>

    Lots of things are bad for you - including worrying too much about other people's business

    Not coke but it's a joke in my family that I must be the only person in the world who gets more coherent with alcohol (well to a point )

    I guess it's the opposite, I talk too fast and trip over words left right and centre, but alcohol makes it easier to speak slower (without counting slow) and have the words come out in the right order.

    Yes! I talk too fast too! Hmm, maybe caffeine makes it easier for me to speak slowly... but it should do the opposite. Hmm idk.

    I like how the OP just ignores me. Probably he/she think it's fine to drink cola.

    Well OP, enjoy your teeth in a few time, is all I can say.
