Andie Currie, 41, used to drink 30 cans of Pepsi a day for 20 years. I had a liter of Pepsi every morning and another nine liters a day. The man points out that he was able to cure his addiction after being hypnotized.
Currie, a grocery store worker in Bangor, a city in North Wales, began his heavy Pepsi consumption when he was a 20-year-old drinker. For two decades it has consumed 219 thousand cans.
The man couldn’t control his craving for Pepsi. “I have always loved the taste of a cold Pepsi. Nothing could beat it and I just got hooked,” shares The New York Post, which takes the interview from South West News Service.
As soon as he woke up, Currie felt the need to go to the refrigerator for the soda to continue his day. He even recalled attending weddings and other parties where guests drank champagne and he opted to broil a cold can of Pepsi.
His Pepsi addiction cost Currie about $8,600 a year.the damage was not only for his pockets, it was also seriously damaging his health.
Currie gained 266 pounds and was warned by his doctors that he was prediabetic, there was also an increased risk of heart disease and cancer.
The consumption of sugary drinks has been associated with multiple negative health effects, such as an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and other chronic diseases such as cancer.
After making a change in his diet and exercising, the man managed to lose 28 pounds, but he did not stop drinking Pepsi.
Therapist and hypnotist David Kilmurry identified that Currie’s addiction to Pepsi was actually an avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID).
After undergoing a 40-minute online hypnotherapy session with Kilmurry, Currie was able to ditch Pepsi and choose water instead for the first time in 20 years. In four weeks he managed to lose 14 pounds and be healthier. His wife, Sarah, notices that his skin looks better and that he has more energy.
Kilmurry noted that Currie’s case is the worst sugar addiction he had ever heard of.
The high consumption of sugar can encourage us to obtain it again, thanks to the pleasure it produces, which is why it is common to hear the term “sugar addict”. Although sugar is not classified by health experts as an addictive substance in the same way as drugs and alcohol, it is still being researched.
