A YOUNG mum has spoken of her bizarre addiction to drinking water - guzzling up to 25 litres per day.

Thirsty Sasha Kennedy, 26, downs almost six gallons of water during a 24-hour period - taking large bottles around with her wherever she goes. She is forced to go to the toilet up to 40 times a day and claims she has even quit jobs over the lack of quality water.

The mother-of-two - who claims she has no health problems - even wakes up several times a night to sip water and go to the toilet.

Sasha said: “If I feel my mouth start to get dry I have to get my next fix of water - it’s all I can focus on. People never really think anyone can drink that much until they get to know me - then they just cannot believe their eyes.

I feel thirsty pretty much all the time and always have to be sipping water - it’s an addictive habit. The most sleep I’ve ever had is about an hour and 15 minutes, because I am getting up to drink or nip to the loo.” –TS
