Washington: Usually people around the world like to drink different juices but there is a US woman who is addicted to drink petrol.
Shannon, set to appear on the aptly named TV show My Strange Addiction, claims to drink up to 12 teaspoons of petrol per day.
â€œIt tingles at first and then it burns the back of my throat,â€ the US woman told TV channel TLC. â€œEven though it hurts me, it makes me feel good.â€
According to TLC, Shannon whose preferred method of drinking petrol is straight out of the canister, has consumed over 18 litres in the last year.
â€œI take the cap off and breathe in the fumes that come forcing out of the can,â€ she said.
Shannonâ€™s mother said at first she didnâ€™t believe her daughter was addicted to petrol, but then she smelled it in her breath.
