Why Alcohol Lingers On Your Breath

Let’s talk about a good summertime topic today — “alcohol breath.” Well, OK, it’s really not “exclusively” a summertime topic — whether it’s a summer bbq or wintertime cheer, alcohol is prevalent in any season. But for many people, summer bbqs, concerts, ballgames, the beach, a day at the pool, etc., all lend themselves to drinking a nice cold one, so we’ll talk about it now. Basically, the main questions people usually ask about alcohol and bad breath are threefold: Why does “alcohol breath” stay around so long, why is it so hard to get rid of and just what is that smell/terrible mouth feeling the morning after? We’ll discuss all three. To start, it’s sometimes assumed that alcohol itself has no smell (or taste), and what you are smelling in that bottle of whiskey is the other ingredients, etc. I found a lot of disagreement with this online, with some experts/places saying it does have a smell (1), and others saying it doesn’t (2). However, I have never personally smelled alcohol that didn’t have an odor. Even vodka, which is supposed to be odorless, has a smell (to me, anyway). So put me down in the camp that smells something, even with pure alcoho Continue reading >>

    I have a history of lying and doing drugs (once) and today, it just so happens that my breath would smell like alcohol, even though I haven't been drinking???
    I was eating a lot before this (binging), and suddenly stopped and ate 500 calories for two days, and then binged. Is smell from ketosis? My parents are pissed because they think I drank alcohol, but I didn't....???
    Anyway, I don't really know what to do. I'm gonna get in trouble for something I didn't even do.... how ironic
    Guess it's my own fault, though, for lying so much.
    I think I just need some reassurance that some how- some way- the truth will come forward.
    Or advice /:

    Do you taste metal mouth? If you really want to prove you aren't drinking I'm pretty sure you can pick up a breathalyzer from a drugstore for like $100.

False-positive Breath-alcohol Test After A Ketogenic Diet.

Abstract A 59-year-old man undergoing weight loss with very low calorie diets (VLCD) attempted to drive a car, which was fitted with an alcohol ignition interlock device, but the vehicle failed to start. Because the man was a teetotaller, he was surprised and upset by this result. VLCD treatment leads to ketonemia with high concentrations of acetone, acetoacetate and beta-hydroxybutyrate in the blood. The interlock device determines alcohol (ethanol) in breath by electrochemical oxidation, but acetone does not undergo oxidation with this detector. However, under certain circumstances acetone is reduced in the body to isopropanol by hepatic alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH). The ignition interlock device responds to other alcohols (e.g. methanol, n-propanol and isopropanol), which therefore explains the false-positive result. This 'side effect' of ketogenic diets needs further discussion by authorities when people engaged in safety-sensitive work (e.g. bus drivers and airline pilots) submit to random breath-alcohol tests.

    Odd question today…. really odd….
    I have been noticing an alcohol smell after my workouts. If I am emitting this smell, I guess it should be through my sweat. No, I am not working out at the beach after a night out drinking tequila (though I wish I was). The smell is very recognizable, something between rubbing alcohol or acetone (nail polish remover). Has anyone experienced this? What is this all about?
    Thanks for the input!

    Yes, right after I open the Guinness. That’s normal, right?
    One of the guys I work with said when he was lifting a lot, he could actually smell tuna in his sweat because he was eating so much of it. Other than that, I easily sweat garlic after a generous helping, but I’ve never heard of sweat smelling like alcohol unless you consume a lot of it.

    I have something similar. My wife calls it an ‘ozone’ smell. Different than when my clothes have stanky bacteria in them, but still bad enough that she does not want to be anywhere near me until i shower.
    I am curious, too.
