David Harding sausage addiction
David Harding, 47, has paid out almost £2,000 in an attempt to beat his bizarre habit, which sees him eat up to 13 bangers per day.
He is now spending up to an hour every month talking through his addiction and has even undergone hypnosis to 'break the spell' of his problem.
But married David, from south east London, admits he's no closer to "freeing" himself from cravings snags.
He said: 'I genuinely cannot bear the thought of living without sausages.
'Drug addicts crave their medicine of choice, and it's the same for me - except that my drug is a banger.'
Accountant David has eaten at least one sausage per day - in sandwiches, fry-ups or main meals - since the age of five.
