Man seeks therapy for sausage addiction

May 31, 2011 at 3:00 AM

LONDON, May 31 (UPI) -- A London man said he has spent more than $3,000 on therapy to "break the spell" of his 13-sausage-per-day habit.

David Harding, 47, said the therapy has thus far brought him no closer to "freeing" himself from his sausage addiction, the Daily Mirror reported Monday.

"I genuinely cannot bear the thought of living without sausages," Harding said. "Drug addicts crave their fix, and it's the same for me -- except my drug is a banger."

Harding said he spends about $1,150 annually on sausages and eats up to 13 each day.

"Apparently I just like sausages -- plain and simple. I don't see that there is anything wrong with that, but I do think that I have to look at ways to control my urges," Harding said.
