Hi,
Drinking Aerated drinks such as coca cola in such huge quantities is bad for your teeth and body in general. The bad breath may be due to smoking and tartar in your mouth. You need to reduce consumption of cola and smoking as well if you want to reduce the bad breath and improve your health. For bad breath or halitosis you should visit a dentist and get cleaning done after that i would strongly recommend a good strong mouth wash for you.

Hello
Drinking Cola may not directly cause bad breath. However with the amount of cola you are drinking it might be injurious to your general health. As pointed out by other doctors it would contain lot of calories. The cause for bad breath in your case is due to smoking and consumption of large quantities of alcohol. Large quantities of alcohol can damage your liver and liver diseases can result in bad breath. Anything in excess is always bad. Reduce intake of cola, alcohol and if possible quit smoking completely or at least try to reduce. Consult your physician and get liver function tests done to know the status of your liver

Take care
