Ask EU ... food is to anorexia as drink is to ???
(I think "as" rather than "and" is the usual form.)
Interesting question though! I suspect there isn't an answer, as taking
not enough liquid will (I think) kill you in a fairly short time, so it
can't be prolonged like anorexia can. BICBW; IANAD.
Yes, 'and' should have been 'as'. Typo.
Not true though. Neither m nor mil drink enough. Mil is aware of it and
the lack has caused kidney stones. M has to be repeatedly nagged and
gets urinary infections and dementia because she doesn't drink enough.
I have made a little progress towards keeping myself better hydrated simply
because my latest medication has headaches as a 'side effect' and drinking
more water has stopped them. It has also, quite unexpectedly, reduced my
craving for tea - I've gone from 10 cups per day to 2 - which has probably
had other good effects.
The temporary dementia effect of not drinking enough is scary but truly
As for the actual question - the two things do not relate. I don't think
there is any psychological reason for not drinking enough - unless you have
rabies - it's probably habit as much an anything and, as my experience
shows, the habit can be broken or a new one developed..
