I have heard of people addicted to different fluids like drinks, nailpolishes, paints and some other weird stuff and i have written reports on them too but hardly did i knew about the addiction of a common need like water.
This lady from Southend-on-Sea, Essex has this strange water addiction and admits that she easily drinks as much as 44 pints of water a day which is almost si gallons of water in 24 hours time.
The young mother named Sasha Kennedy, a mother of two,does not have any health problems. She just has to wake up a number of times a night to sip water and go to the washroom. It is normal for her to go to the toilet 40 times a day. Carrying bottles of water along with her wherever she goes is her daily requirement.
It is also to be mentioned that the normal body intake of water is 3.5 pints recommended by the doctors. According to the lady,
‘If I feel my mouth start to get dry I have to get my next fix of water – it’s all I can focus on. People never really think anyone can drink that much until they get to know me – then they just cannot believe their eyes.
‘I feel thirsty pretty much all the time and always have to be sipping water – it’s an addictive habit.
‘The most sleep I’ve ever had is about one hour and 15 minutes, because I am getting up to drink or nip to the loo.’
The rare habit was developed when she was just two years old upon which her parents took her to the doctor for any sign of abnormality. But medical experts confirmed there was nothing wrong with her. She even claims to have left a job because the quality of the company's tap water was not good enough.
