Man drank 48 cans of lager a day

I agree with the judge: "It almost defies belief how anyone can drink 48 cans of lager a day and a bottle or two of spirits."

A chronic Preston alcoholic has told how he used to drink 48 cans of lager and two bottles of brandy every day.

But 28-year-old Sean Whiteside from Preston has pledged to beat his demons for good after cutting down his boozing - to 30 cans a day.

[He] gave up work 12 months ago after his addiction became too much.

He says he is unable to work and has put in a claim for incapacity benefit because of his illness.

Read the entire astonishing story at the Lancashire Evening Post.
