akki, 42, swigs up to 50 cans a day and spends around £500 a month.

When the mum of five tries to stop she suffers panic attacks and hallucinations.

Now Jakki, who has been on the fizzy drink for nearly 30 years, is to see a hypnotherapist in a bid to beat her addiction.


She said: “Diet Coke has taken over my life. It’s as important as paying the electricity bills.’’

Jakki, a former dry cleaner from Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, got ­addicted after switching from ordinary Coke on doctor’s advice to lose weight when she was 14.

She shed pounds but started drinking more and more.

She said: “I am scared for my health. I dread to think what my insides look like.’’

Dr Sarah Schenker of the British Dietetic Association said Jakki should try cognitive behavioural therapy which is often used to treat eating disorders.
