I'll be honest. I do this literally every time I drink.
I have heard a lot of people say, "Oh shit, this is going to go right to my head, I only ate X today," which makes me think that they do it on purpose to save money and get drunk easier. I've heard this from both boys and girls... And I've had a few friends say, "I should have eaten dinner, this was a bad idea," but I don't know if it was intentional or not. I don't think it's an ED behaviour in and of itself, though. People my age especially like to drink... and they can often be very cheap and think that they're being smart. If I didn't have an eating disorder I wonder if I would do the same thing.
This reminds me of a conversation I had with Becky, about working on a Saturday night, lots of guys came in and bought a load of alcohol. One of the blokes bought a sausage roll and the rest of them were really taking the piss, saying things like "eating is cheating" and you know, other stuff about how he shouldn't be eating anything because it means he'll have a head start on the others because he'll have something in his stomach and the others won't...like drinking is a competition...
But yeah this whole [blank]orexia thing is pathetic, the papers just can't resist coming up with something, some sort of buzzword that people will remember. It's not "drunkorexia", it's drinking alcohol without eating so they get pissed quicker...then the next morning, if they haven't got their heads in a toilet because of the amount they drank last night, they'll be eating themselves out of house and home to try and get rid of the hangover...with loads of coffee and Irn Bru. It doesn't get anyone anywhere- I don't think it's replacing food with alcohol, and although that does happen, it's not called "drunkorexia" or any other stupid buzzword.
If I couldn't laugh at my eating disorder, I wouldn't be in recovery
