I just saw this on the evening news and was amused.
It’s on more reputable sites too but I included thos one because it has a pic.
Personally, I do not have this problem because I drink from a klean kanteen.. and save plastic bottles in the process.

I don’t know if this is true.
As my Fiance just said, people who play brass and wind instruments don’t have “smoker’s wrinkles” around their mouths and they pucker much tighter and longer than water-bottle-drinkers. I’ve only seen smoker’s wrinkles around the mouths of smokers. Pretty sure the toxic nature of the cigarettes has a lot to do with it.
Using your face will cause it to wrinkle, very very gradually, but pesronally I think that’s ok and wouldn’t let it affect my thirst quenching habits.

@joya_aspera: Yeah, I think people worry too much. That’s why I was amused.

@kgirl91: Yeah, it’s from the Dily Mail so there is no way it’s true.

@BridieBea: Like I said in my OP, I heard it on the evening news (on TV) and also saw it elsewhere on the web. I included THAT link because it included a photo whereas the others didn’t.

@joya_aspera: that actually helps me feel better because I usually drink with a straw and have to admit I was mildly worried about it!
I firgure that most people with mouth wrinkles are smokers, but I’m basing that on a hunch. it has been proven that smoking causes premature aging, and it seems to me that you are getting an extra concentrated amount of that crap around the mouth area. that was my theory, at least.
