Pauline Wyatt, 38, said that her addiction to Coke started when she was 16 years old and she often kept a bottle near her bed so that she could drink a glass of Coke if she got up at midnight. She finally gave up her addiction after a health scare that saw her experience a shooting pain up her arm and shoulder.

She drove herself to the hospital thinking she had a heart attack but the doctors said that it was just a scare but recommended that she stop drinking too much caffeine. "I thought I was having a heart attack, but it wasn't - it was just a scare. They advised me not to have any more caffeine. I didn't do it slowly. I had boxes of it sitting there in the house, and I tipped all 30 bottles of it down the sink", she said.
