A student who has been drinking six cans of Monster Energy Drink for months has revealed his terrible caries.
Vinnie Pyner, 21, claims to be enthusiastic about the popular drink to help him stay awake for his college education.
But he says four of his front teeth snapped as he bit into an apple and his dentist found his mouth was rotting.
Well, Vinnie from Margate, Kent, claims he needs 24 fillings and bits for his frontman.
He said, "It began as a way to relieve the stress and pressure of my college class because you have to concentrate on arithmetic and coding.
"But I never thought it would be that bad, it dramatically changed my trust.
"I had the ambition to become a game designer, but now my hopes have failed."
After consuming about 45 cans of monsters a week for seven months, Vinnie said he had been cold in the turkey.
But he was too embarrassed to return to East Kent College, where he studied BTEC Computing and Coding.
He added, "The dentist was extremely shocked to see my teeth, and she said it was one of the worst cases of tooth decay and damage he had ever seen.
"When I looked at my teeth, I realized what I had done, I was in complete chaos.
"I could not attend college that way, so I had to leave because I could not stand the embarrassment.
"I'm not sure what the future holds, but I hope I can get back on my feet.
"It started with three a day at breakfast, lunch and dinner so I could concentrate during my studies.
"I often felt tired and badly needed the energy drinks."
The humiliated Vinnie has spoken out to warn others against excessive energy use.
Although he believes that his "addiction" to Monster was the cause of his tooth decay, this remains unconfirmed.
His mother, Tara, says the highlight of his dependence on the drink was around Christmas 2017. Soon after, he allegedly suffered toothache every time he ate.
The 46-year-old mother said, "I saw him regularly come home with multipacks, which was the first sign of addiction.
"It was absolutely shocking, his upper four incisors had completely fallen off and you could see his gumline, it was awful.
"Incisors are often the first adult teeth that grow and make up most of our smile, so his smile was completely ruined.
"As a mother, it was very hard to understand because this addiction took control of his life for the past seven months."
Since then, Vinnie is being treated.
Dentists found that all of Vinnie's teeth had rotted.
He was told to have 24 fillings and a dentition for the front four teeth.
His self-confidence sank and he dropped out of college, so now he spends all his time at home and seldom goes out.
The student added, "I can not do much, much less think about my future.
"I can not apply for a job because the interviewers look at my teeth and say no immediately.
"The smile is the first thing you see in a job interview."
Vinnie started dental treatment in September and hopes to return to college and get a job soon.
