Alcorexia is a condition whereby a man or woman starve themselves of alcohol in order to lead a more healthy lifestyle or to avoid future embarrassments caused by a previous fun, drunken night.
It is important to point out that Alcorexia cannot be suffered by people whose alcohol consumption has always been low. Rather, your typical alcorexic is one who has temporarily gone from very large intake to no intake whatsoever.
Alcorexia sufferers will typically have been the most charming and fun person in your group of friends (ie the one who drank the most). Alcorexia is usually brought on after something as innocuous as simply shaming themselves the night before. The alcorexia sufferer's warped mind contains a sad, pathetic and often terrifying vision of themselves: they misleadingly believe that they are "drinking too much", when in fact, ceasing their alcohol intake can have terrible after-effects, such as memory, a sense of responsibility and the shakes.
After suffering from debilitating panic attacks for 2 weeks and trying to cure them with drinking, Richard finally gave up drinking for a while, hit the xanax, and began to suffer Alcorexia.
