小编摘要:酒瘾烟瘾,这些不健康的嗜好已经让人头痛,可乐瘾又将引起怎样的灾难呢。

导读:38岁的Darren Jones是个彻彻底底的可乐迷,每天不喝上18听的可乐就让他度日如年,而他每年花在可乐上的开销也达到了惊人的3000欧元。众所周知,可乐绝不是什么健康饮品,但Jones却也健健康康,无病无灾。一起看新闻是怎么说的吧!

A man has told how a lifelong addiction to Diet Coke has come to dominate his life.

Darren Jones, 38, can't go a day without downing 18 cans of the soft drink - the equivalent of 42 litres a week, costing him around £3,000 a year.

Over the past decade his habit has gradually worsened and now he can't leave the house without a bottle of Coca Cola.

Astonishingly the father of two, from Stockport, Greater Manchester insists his huge intake - which amounts to 65,700 cans over the past ten years - hasn't caused him any medical or dental problems

But he did say that if he doesn't get his daily fix he can get moody and irritable.

He said: 'I don't really drink anything else. When I don't have it my family says I'm a nightmare to be around.'

Although he has bottles stored in his kitchen he doesn't let his children Abbie, seven, and James, six, drink the sugar-free soft drink.

Despite Mr Jones insisting that his addiction hasn't affected his health, health experts have warned otherwise.

Dr Vicci Owen-Smith, NHS Stockport's deputy director of public health, said: 'Diet Coke has artificial sweetener and contains caffeine. Too much of either of these may cause harm.'

In June, U.S. researchers confirmed artificial sweeteners and diet drinks cause weight gain, possibly by boosting a craving for sugary foods.

Diet Coke was first introduced in the U.S. on August 9, 1982, becoming the first new brand since 1886 to use the Coca-Cola trademark.

It was sweetened with aspartame, to save money, after the sweetener became available in the U.S. the following year.

A Coca-Cola spokesperson commented: 'Our packaging clearly shows caffeine, calorie and sugar content in relation to recommended daily guidelines.'

Mother-of-two Claire Ayton was also revealed to be a Diet Coke addict earlier this year. She said she felt constantly tired, thirsty and found it impossible to lose weight as a consequence.
