A new cable show features people with strange addictions, including a couple who can't stop giving themselves coffee enemas. As odd as it sounds, it's only one of many similar alternative medicine practices.
According to a story on ABC News, a "St. Petersburg, Fla., couple refuses to drink the caffeinated beverage, which they say is bad for their health. Instead, they use it as an enema. They each have at least 100 coffee enemas a month, 6,000 in all since their addiction began two years ago. ‘I started the whole debacle,' Trina, who did not want to reveal her last name, told ABCNews.com. ‘Then it took on a life of its own. I twice tried to stop and felt worse, so I do this every day and as much as I can. But it's very time-consuming.' ‘I love the way it makes me feel,' said Trina. ‘It gives me a sense of euphoria.' The couple admits they perform their caffeinated enema at least four times a day.' Fortunately the couple works at home, avoiding any awkward moments around the office coffeemaker. Still, the scenario is not as strange as it may seem.
