    Do you have it?

    Whiskirexia nervosa is a whiskey buying disorder characterized by a distorted whiskey inventory image and an obsessive fear of running out of whiskey. Individuals with whiskirexia nervosa tend to already own more whiskey than they can ever drink, even as they continue to buy more.

    Re: Do you have it?

    Does an obsessive desire to aquire an inventory of quality samples of every major style and sub category (that I enjoy) qualify?

    Edited to add: Apart from my "drinking stash".

    I concur with ThomasH, a Stagg prescription is a valid remedy.

    My image of my whiskey inventory is not distorted, I have a fairly accurate spreadsheet telling me exactly how much whiskey I have.

    I have no great fear of running out of whiskey anytime soon, thanks to the aforementioned spreadsheet.

    I do not have more whiskey that I could reasonably drink (assuming I live to anywhere near the standard life expectancy for someone my age), so therefore it would be okay for me to continue to purchase whiskey.

    So based upon this thorough analysis, there is no way I could qualify for the mentioned ailment. Thank you for clarifying this for me, I was beginning to get worried, but that seems to have been unwarranted.

    I don't have it. A few years ago, I may have, but not any more. It is made easier by the fact that my state has very few interesting items to choose from.
