Pepsi-Addict Who Drank 30 Cans a Day Has Kicked the Habit


It can be hard to kick any habit, especially when you’ve been doing it for over 20 years. A supermarket worker was finally able to get over his after he was so hooked on Pepsi that he drank 30 cans a day for two decades.

Andy Currie, has guzzled an estimated 219,000 cans of Pepsi since he first started drinking the beverage in his twenties. The 41-year-old has now sipped his last drop after he was warned by doctors that he was at risk of becoming diabetic. It’s almost a shock that he hadn’t reached that point already, consuming the equivalent of nearly seven million sugar cubes with the amount of Pepsi he’s had throughout his life.

The North Wales man now claims that he’s been kicked off the Pepsi craze after having a single online hypnotherapy session and drinking water for the first time in 20 years.

“I’ve always loved the taste of a cold Pepsi. Nothing could beat it and I just got hooked. I work nights so always liked the sugar rush to keep me going. I’d go through four or five two-litre bottles of Pepsi every day. Because I work at Tesco I could just buy it straight after work and take it home,” Currie said.

To put that into perspective, Currie has spent around $25 each day on Pepsi, shelling out around $8,600 a year for the drink.

Even though Currie started working out and eating better, losing 28 pounds in the process, he was still unable to stop drinking Pepsi until his hypnotherapy session with David Kilmurry. Kilmurry identified Currie as having avoidant restrictive food intake disorder.

The 40-minute session did wonders and Currie has yet to pick up a can or bottle of Pepsi since.

“I haven’t touched them in a month and don’t plan to. I prefer water now. My wife Sarah says my skin looks better and I’ve got so much more energy,” Currie said.
