Alcohol Abuse + Eating Disorder = The Deadly Diet
“Drunkorexia” – it’s not a medical term, but literally, this term implies a combination of excessive alcohol consumption (“drunk”) with desire or appetite (“-orexia”). On college campuses, this term means much more than “an appetite to be drunk.” It’s used to describe the behavior of deliberately avoiding food intake and/or exercising excessively before drinking. Drunkorexia is also used to describe the behavior of self-induced vomiting after eating (to empty the stomach of food before drinking alcohol), or purging in the midst of an evening of heavy drinking (to allow for continued alcohol consumption). This is a very dangerous behavior, which can result in severe dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, and sudden heart attack – or, an accidental overdose of alcohol, coma and sudden death.
Many people who are dealing with eating disorders and substance abuse tend to “switch addictions” – when in abstinence from alcohol/drugs, they may turn to food as a means of coping. When their eating disorder is “in control,” their alcohol/drug use may increase. Dr. Dorie guides clients to be free of ALL addictions!
